Unwritten: Against A Future Return

- As the hum and vibration in the heart of the undersea complex increased to a near violent pitch, Norm noticed the row of routing switches that had all been deactivated. In a split-second decision, he threw the switches up and the station's power output stabilized - unfortunately not before an electrical discharge ruptured some sort of gas conduit, pumping a noxious yellowish smoke into the control room. Norm and Kenta hurried out, closing the bulkhead-like door behind them.
- Meanwhile, back at the linking point, Kathleen and Reis compiled some details on their new "friends" before returning to their research efforts. Reis spent the day continuing her experiements on the large trees and their fruit (a specimen of which she was able to obtain with Kathleen's help), and Kat decided to delve into the text of the Er'cana descriptive book they'd traded the Malves book for.
- Power restored, Norm and Kenta two proceeded back to the "airlock", which they found to be apparently functional. They discovered its actual purpose was as a pressurization chamber as the room on the other side contained a diving hatch for access to the ocean floor.
- After decompression, they emerged from the pressurization chamber to find the lights in the facility were now blinking red and water was trickling in from somewhere and running down the steps they were going up. Norm returned to the control room, holding his breath against the smoke, and "undid" his previous actions, but only managed to kill the lights. The background hum of the station had ceased, and the facility now seemed to be almost completely without power. The door out to the ladder still operated, and opening caused a few inches of water that had gathered in the tube to flood in. Concerned that the station may be lost, the took some time to gather some of the books and research materials from the study area before climbing back to the surface.
