Screen 1

ONE:
On the FIRE TEAM CAPTAIN, shouting through the TRUMPET.

1. CAPTAIN: Abandon ship!
2. CAPTAIN: That featherwood fire reaches the magazine

TWO:
Back on PEGASUS deck, SABRE watching PAYNE. PAYNE still has his back to her, still has his sword in hand, but lowered. Shoulders rounded, defeated.

3. CAPTAIN/off: —you’ll be blown clear to the Fueille!

4. SABRE: What say you, Mister Payne?

THREE:
PAYNE in FG, facing us, SABRE behind him, speaking. She’s won, and she knows it.

PAYNE’S expression is grim.

5. SABRE: Do we finish in fire

FOUR:
Stet, but PAYNE has raised his head. His expression is murderous.

Past him, SABRE has half-turned away, indicating/looking towards the fire ships.

6. SABRE: …or will you accept the offered salvation?

7. PAYNE: Put like that, m’lady Captain…

Screen 2
