This is a one off birthday special entry...October 28th, 2071, orbit of Mars...
Kole: Looks down on Mars, in which her shuttle is orbiting.
Well, Alexei, there it is, the Mars One Colony. What do you think?
Alexei: It's impressive, Kole. I see why you wanted to be here for your birthday.
Kole: Yeah, and I'm sure my parents appreciate the more than two months they'll get to spend with Marie and Amanda while we're gone. Holds up the time key.
These keys are great, aren't they.
Alexei: Yeah, they are. And the best part is that they can return us to 1930 on the same day we left. So, as far as my family and Sam are concerned, we will only be gone a day.
Confusing is it. Puts the key away and opens a communication the surface of Mars.
This is Major Kathryn Munro, requesting permission to land.
Voice: Permission granted, Major Munro, welcome to Mars.Soon the shuttle has landed and Kole and Alexei have been shown into the main colony area. They meet the colony leader, Dr. Benjamin Driscoll..
Driscoll: Major Munro, I hope you had a good flight out from Earth.
Kole: I did, and please call me Kole. Gestures to Alexei.
This is my husband, Alexei Romanov.
Driscoll: Romanov? Any relation to the Russian Royal Family?
Alexei: Uh, yeah, I'm a distant relative, you might say.
Kole: So, what is this about a rock you people found not too long ago?
Driscoll: Yeah, you did mention something about it when you first asked to come here. Come on, I'll show it to you.Soon they are all in the lab, looking at the rock with the words RUSSIAN EXPEDITION TO MARS, SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER, 1928. CREW: ALEXEI NICHOLAIEVICH ROMANOV AND HIS WIFE, KATERINA FEODOROVNA. WE GOT HERE FIRST! on it.
Kole: So that's the mysterious rock. Winks at Alexei, who winks back.
Driscoll: Yes, it is. Of course, we think it's a hoax, it must be. A flight to Mars was just not possible in 1928.
Kole: No, I guess it wasn't. Winks at Alexei again.
Driscoll: The odd things is one of those names, Alexei Romanov. Turns to Alexei.
It's the same as yours. Looks at Kole.
Isn't Katerina the Russian version of Kathryn?
Kole: Yes, it is. Amazing coincident, isn't it.
Driscoll: Yeah, it is. It must be.
Kole: So, is that buggy ready?
Driscoll: Yes, it is. Follow me.Later, Alexei and Kole are out in a surface buggy, visiting Utopia Planetia, where they had landed in 1928.
Alexei: Well, here we are again.
Kole: Yeah, only more than a century later.
Poor Mr. Driscoll. He'll never know how close to the truth he really is.
Kole: I know. However, you know we can't tell him the truth.
Alexei: I know. Reaches into his pocket and pulls out a piece of paper.
Kole: What's that?
Alexei: Your birthday present. Hands the paper to Kole.
Kole: After reading the paper.
You bought me a star?
Alexei: Yes, I did. Points to the sky.
There it is, in the Constellation of Scorpio.
Kole: Of course, since I'm a Scorpio, being born on October 28th. I love it, Alexei.
Alexei: I knew you would. Happy Birthday, Kole. I love you.
Kole: I love you, Alexei.Under the Martian sky, that includes the star named for Kole, the two of them kiss...
