Scene 1C

CARTER

Hell-o operator.

CARTER

Before you start, I know we’re not supposed to use the admiral’s frequency for anything that isn’t official business. But there were some things I wanted to discuss.

CARTER

Now, I sent the last of my divorce papers up to you

today so send them on for me asap and...

OPERATOR

Why are you breaking comms protocol to talk about your divorce?

CARTER

What, you’ve never hijacked the dive channel for a cross-station booty call? Or to uncover a conspiracy?

OPERATOR

Not this again. You’ll get yourself fired.

CARTER

Look, I'll never be over losing Veronica. Sara might've moved on but I can't. I shouldn’t have let her go that day, those stupid observation deck grav couplers would’ve failed no one.

CARTER

Recently though, I’ve been thinking - all this time I’ve blamed myself but what if it’s not my fault?

OPERATOR

It doesn't have to be anyone's fault.

CARTER

Yes, it does. And if it isn’t someone else’s fault, it’s mine.

CARTER

Just hear me out okay? Something doesn’t feel right - someone did something and my little girl’s gone. We didn’t even get a body. Whoever it is has to pay - she was a child.

CARTER

Sorry, I… I don’t like who I am recently. Just help me put this to bed. I have a lead. I’ve sent you some recordings. Listen to them, please?
