Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within Script



Every night, the same dream,

the same strange planet.



But why?



What are they trying to tell me?



It's been    years

since they arrived on this planet.



And not a day passes

that the survivors...



... forced to live in barrier cities,

do not live in fear.



I have vowed to end that fear.



I believe my dreams hold the key.



The question is, will I be

in time to save the Earth?



Where are you?



This is a restricted area.



Do not move!



-What's she doing here?

-l don't know. We're getting her out.



-You're coming with us.

-Behind you!



Hold it!



Damn. Let's move, people!



Two coming through the wall!



Hold your fire.

Those tanks are flammable!



Ryan, Neil, let's go!



-What are you doing?

-There's a life form.



-Not in years.

-There is now.



Life form or not, l'm taking you in.



Arrest me. But l'm not

leaving without that life form.



lt's one of those days.



Captain, the transport won't wait

for us much longer.



-l understand that.

-lt's in bad shape.



Tell me we're not

risking our necks for this plant!



Really, it's a weed.



-l wouldn't even call it a weed.

-l need a minute to extract it.



That's a minute we do not have.



l'm afraid he's right.



We have incoming.



-Captain, we need to get moving.

-Understood, sergeant.



-Could you hurry?





-Yes, Neil?



l'm for '' let's get out of here.''



Duly noted.



Can l have this, please?



-We're surrounded!

-No shit!



-Just relax.

-We gotta get to higher ground.



Everyone, up top!



Go, go, go!



-Requesting immediate evac.




Up here!



-They're right behind you!

-Come on!



l've got you!



-You okay?




All right, everybody, here they come.



You okay?



You're gonna be all right.



So, why shouldn't l arrest you?



l am Dr. Aki Ross.

l have clearance to be here.



-Not without authorization.

-l don't have time for this.



Do you realize you risked our lives?



The fact of the matter is...


            was worth your men's lives.

-Your men?



-She thinks you're a man.

-She's an idiot.



-l know you're not a man.

-You're an idiot.




-l want to talk about it.



Did it occur to you...



...that we would've volunteered

had we been given a choice?



Nobody asked you to save me.



You have not changed a bit!






Yeah. Nice to see you too.



-Welcome back, captain.

-We're clean.



-Let's make sure of that.

-l hate getting scanned.



lt's probably worse

for us than the Phantoms.



These machines

are suspected of causing sterility.



l want to have

a little Neil Jr. someday.



-That's a spooky thought.

-Quit busting my chops?



Let's just do this thing.



Yes, sir.



-Yes, sir.

-Yes, sir.



Okay, next.



You've gained weight.



lt's upper-body strength.

Get a girlfriend.



l'm working on it.



My security rating

allows me to bypass this.



Not today it doesn't.



Something's not right.



-About this mission? Or that woman?







Listen, l think--



l don't care what you think.



You're getting scanned

just like everybody else.






They got him.



There must be a mistake.



You came in contact

with a Phantom.



Administering treatment shield.



-What level?

-Blue. Code red in  -  I  minutes.



We have to treat him.



lmpossible. We'll transfer him

to the treatment center.



There's no time for that.



Get him to the table.



Hang in there, captain.



Locating pathogens.



Jesus, look at that thing!



How much time?



Not enough. When he reaches code red,

the shield won't hold.



Engaging bio-etheric laser.




-Where'd it go?



What is going on?



We've lost contact.

lnfestation is moving deeper.




-There's no time.




-You'll lose him!



His treatment shield is failing.



Found it.



Come on.



lt's all right.



You'll be back to normal in no time.



Doctor, we need

to scan you for infestation.



That won't be necessary.

l'll take responsibility.



Hey, doc.



Thanks for saving him.



-Are you all right?

-The military impounded my ship.



-What's with her?

-What's with her and the captain?



What's with her and that stupid plant?






Forward me everything regarding

the five spirits collected.



Yes, doctor.



l thought we weren't supposed to

use the ''s'' word.



Don't get smart with me.



Now let's see if

that plant does the trick.



lt's a match. We've found it.






The sixth spirit.



You broke nearly every protocol.



How long do you think this would

have survived outside?



There are elements in the council and

military waiting to shut us down.



Look,    years ago, who discovered

this energy in the Phantoms? You.



And who proved the same energy source

existed in humans and every life form?



You. You made it possible

to harness that energy...



...for ovo-pacs, scanners,

the barrier.



The council knows. They trust you.

We're so close to proving it.



But we still need these parts.



Two more pieces

and we've solved the puzzle!



We need to be free

to find those pieces.



l want to show you something.



-What is this?




''All life is born of Gaia

and each life has a spirit.



Each new spirit is housed in a body.''



Go on.



''Through their experiences on Earth,

each spirit matures and grows.



When the physical body dies...



...the mature spirit, enriched by life

on Earth, returns to Gaia...



...bringing with it the experiences...



...enabling Gaia to live and grow.''



lt's my old diary.



l wrote that    years ago,

when l was the age you are now.



Dr. Sid!



Remember Galileo?

They threw him in jail because...



...he said the Earth was not

the center of the universe.



That could happen to us.



Our ideas are unpopular, Aki.



lf you have any notes

that could be used against you...



...destroy them.



-Keep them up here.




And stay away from the captain.



He saves your life, you save his,

this leads to that.



l was young once.



Doctor, there is a war going on.



No one's young anymore.



Members of the council...



...could you please explain why?



Zeus was completed a month ago.



lf we attack the meteor, we will

eliminate the Phantoms at the source.



General Hein, calm down.



We voted   to  ...


            postpone using the Zeus cannon

to attack the Leonid Meteor.



We have re-convened to vote again.



l'd like to ask the director of

the Bio-Etheric Center to speak.



-Dr. Sid, please.

-Thank you.



The Phantoms' nest

is in the Leonid Meteor...



...that landed here    years ago.



What you see now are the records

of every assault on the meteor.



Physical attacks have had

utterly no effect.



This took place three months ago

during a full-scale bombardment.



Please note the Phantoms outside

the meteor are destroyed.



However, inside, many that

were dormant come to life...



...and as you see, overall

Phantom density remains the same.



The newly risen aliens respond

to the attack...


            burrowing deeper

into the Earth.



This is very interesting to me...



...because we see

the same thing during surgery...



...when using bio-etheric lasers

on Phantom particles, do we not?



Yes, indeed we do.



The injured particles escape...



...digging themselves deeper

into a patient's body.



When we increase the laser power

to destroy these deeper particles...



...we have had incidents of

further injury to a patient...



...and in some cases...






What exactly does that mean?



lt means there's a very good chance...



...the beam from the Zeus cannon

will burn the Phantoms.



Exactly! Thank you.



However, it also means that

the beam energy may be too strong...



...injuring the Earth.



lnjure the Earth?



You mean the Gaia.



-l mean--

-You mean the spirit of the Earth.



Yes, the spirit of the Earth.



Did he say what l think he said?



What are you doing?



l know what l'm doing.

Keep your mouth shut.



This is ridiculous.



With all due respect...



...did you come here to talk

about some Gaia theory?



To tell us that the planet is alive?



That it has a spirit?



That's a fairy tale.

We don't have time.



lt is not a fairy tale. lt is true.



So if l point a gun

at the Earth and fire...



...l'm not just making a hole,

l'm killing the planet.



The Gaia theory

has not been proven.



Even if Gaia does exist, won't we

still have to remove the Phantoms?



lf there's a chance of success,

we should take it.



-Don't you agree?

-Of course.



But there is an alternative

to the space cannon.



Another method?



-A means of disabling the Phantoms.




As we know, the aliens display

a distinct energy pattern.



lt is a fact that

two opposing bio-etheric waves...



...placed one over the other

cancel each other out.



lt is theoretically possible

to make a wave pattern...



to the Phantom energy.



We are assembling such

a wave and are near completion.



Members of the council...



...gathering plants and animals...


            fight the Phantoms

is utter nonsense.



The Zeus cannon is a proven,

effective weapon.



lt will kill Phantoms.



Can we afford to wait

for some crazy invention...



...some army of

touchy-feely plants and animals...



...that offers no evidence

that it will destroy the aliens?



There is evidence!



Our partially completed energy wave...



...has stopped

Phantom particles from spreading...



...through an infected patient.



Do you have evidence that

a terminal patient was cured?



Not cured. The wave is not complete.



We've succeeded in containing the

particles safely inside the patient.



Where is the proof?






You may have bought us some time,

but at what cost?



l can't keep hiding

while you protect me.



l want what life l have left

to mean something.



When we find

the seventh and eighth spirits--



lf we find them.

What we need now is luck.



Luck has nothing to do with it.



Faith and hard work, girl...



...because l'll be damned

if you're going to die before me.



The council decided to postpone

firing the Zeus cannon.



l guess l put on a good show.



Mind if l tag along?



You'll probably get bored.



So, what are you doing?



Oh, l see. You're giving me

the silent treatment.



l'm scanning the city

for the seventh spirit.



Hurry up, Neil.



-Almost got it.

-What are you doing?



We're gonna strand them for a while.



Hey, it was his idea.



This was your idea?



We're just helping the captain out.



Where's your sense of romance?



You've seen how

the captain looks at her.



lt's amore, baby.



What's going on?



lt's probably just a glitch.



-Listen, Aki--

-l'm still mad at you.



-You're mad?

-Leaving your helmet on.



Not telling me who you were.

That doesn't seem a bit childish?



l was upset when you left for

the Zeus Station without a word.



-Now you know what was going on.

-Now l know.



My operation had

to be done in zero grav.






l was there on a job

and you wouldn't even see me.



l was probably collecting

spirit waves.



-Now l know.

-l'm sorry!



Well, me too! We're both sorry.



Will you tell me about them?



About what?



About the spirits you've collected.



l was infected by a Phantom

during an experiment.



-Normally, no one could have survived.

-How did you?



Dr. Sid created a membrane around

the infection, keeping me alive.



So the first spirit wave was me.



-The second was a fish.

-A fish?



The third was a deer l found

in a wildlife preserve outside Moscow.



The fourth was a bird.



Ever tried to track a sparrow

from outer space? lt's no fun.



-You'd love that.

-l would.



And then there was that plant

l collected from Times Square.



-l thought that was number six.




You skipped one.



The fifth was a little girl dying

in a hospital emergency room.



l retrieved the sample

in time, but she....



l told her everything had a spirit:

Dogs, cats, trees, little girls.



Even the Earth.



l told her she wasn't dying,

but returning to the Earth's spirit...





She told me that she was ready to die.



She said l didn't have to make up

stories to make her feel better.



Only   years old and ready to die.



l'm sorry.



l have work to do. l have to find

the seventh and eighth spirits.



Don't, please.



You don't believe any of this, do you?



l just don't know, Aki.



ls this why you shut me out?



You should have told me.



l don't know

how much time l have left.



Who does?



l better get back to scanning.



Captain Edwards...


            extracted a Dr. Ross from

Old New York several days ago?



-Yes, sir.

-What were your impressions of her?



She seemed very capable

and determined, sir.



You and the Deep Eyes are being

temporarily reassigned.



You will guard Dr. Ross

when she reenters the wasteland.



-Understood, sir.

-You don't understand yet, captain.



Report any aberrant behavior

in Dr. Ross to the major immediately.



Aberrant behavior?



She carries an alien infestation.

We don't know what it's doing to her.



lt might affect her judgment.



They may be manipulating her.



ls the general suggesting

that Dr. Ross is a spy?



The general is wondering why

he's explaining himself to a captain.



She's had prolonged exposure

to Phantom tissue.



lf this begins to manifest itself...



...she is to be placed under arrest

and transported here for observation.



lt is, in fact, for her own good.



Of course, sir.



Major, send some of our men

to keep an eye on the good captain.



I'm convinced these dreams

are some form of communication.



The message still eludes me...



...but they're coming faster now

and that can only mean one thing.



The Phantoms inside me

are beginning to win.



Our target is    klicks

west of Tucson.



Phantom concentration?



Not good.

We've got big metas everywhere.



lt's gonna be a real picnic.



Stick close. No heroics today.

Everything by the book.



By the book. Right.



lf we drop energy buoys

here, here and here...



...we can acquire the target and get

out before they know we were there.



The buoys attract the Phantoms?




-For a while.



You're from the    th?

Under General Hein?



Ever done wasteland recon before?

lt can get pretty ugly.



Captain, rendezvous for evac at

vector   coordinate    .



Roger. Stay alert for hostiles.



Looks like they've taken the bait.



The seventh spirit should be

just beyond that line of wreckage.



How could any living thing

survive here?



We'll find out soon enough.



This was

the Phantom Cleansing Mission.



lt was supposed to end the war.



My father's in here somewhere.



All right.



Let's move out, people.



l'll be damned.



A survivor.



What's it doing out here?



Hoping for life to return.



ls that our spirit, doc?






We're closing in on the life form.




-Hard to say. We're very close.



l don't see anything.



-You're not gonna tell me it's him?

-That's impossible.



lt's his ovo-pac.



How? The pacs power

our weapons, the barrier cities....



lt's just bio-etheric energy.



To create that energy we use

living tissue. Single-cell organisms.



-His backpack is the seventh spirit?




We have incoming. Captain?



Say again?



We have incoming.



Ryan, get the soldier's pac.



l need a hand! Sarge!



-Those buoys? They're not working.




-Are you all right?

-Of course l am.



Let's get out of here!



This shouldn't be happening.



Something's attracting them.






-They're closing in fast!

-Jane, take the lead.



Fire in the hole!



Get us out of here, Neil.



-l'd love to, but--

-Just do it!



Okay, that's it.



That doesn't look good.



We have to get her to a hospital.



-You have your orders, sir.

-What the hell's going on?



Dr. Ross is to be taken

into custody now, sir.



Lower your weapons. That's an order!



We relieve you of your command.



You'll have to shoot me.



Stand down, captain!



Hang on, everyone!



That's enough.

Hands where l can see them.



Deep Eyes, hard to starboard!



Neil, get us back to New York, fast!



The Deep Eyes are returning, sir.



There was an incident.



lt would seem the Phantoms

were attracted to Dr. Ross.



The crew barely escaped

with their lives.



Captain Edwards is still in command.



lssue an order.



l want Edwards and Dr. Ross

placed under arrest.



All research materials pertaining

to Dr. Sid's wave theory...



...are to be confiscated.



That might not go over

well with the council.



What a tragedy that would be.



This is perfect. The good captain

has opened the door for us.



The council will be at our feet...



...thanking us for exposing

the traitors and imploring us...


            save them from the Phantoms.



How is she, doctor?



-She is dying.

-There must be something you can do.



Aki is fighting with

only six of the spirits.



We'll have to implant the seventh

directly into her chest plate.



l think it might be damaged.



We have to repair this panel quickly.



Her vital signs are dropping.

Aki is slipping away from us.



She needs a sympathetic spirit

to help hold her in this world.



l can think of none better suited

for that task than yours, captain.



-l don't understand.

-You don't have to understand.



You just be with her now.



You keep her here with us.



Aki? Where are we?



On an alien planet.



How is that possible?



l'm not entirely sure.



You seem pretty calm.



l've been having this dream

every night for months.






Well, whatever it is.



You're really here, aren't you?



What's happening to me?



Sid is implanting the seventh spirit

directly into your body.



Then you're my spiritual support.



Gray, how sweet of you.



Look, l don't think you realize

how serious this situation is.



Something you should see here, sir.



And l am watching what, major?



lt seems Dr. Ross has been

recording her dreams.



And why would l be interested in...



...her dreams?



This is it. This is our evidence.



She's under the influence

of the Phantoms.



The dreams should be all the council

needs to authorize the Zeus cannon.



The council is content to hide

inside this barrier...



...while the world dies

more every day.



They need a push

in the right direction.



Get together a group

of your most trusted men.



Why are they staring at us?



Not at us.



Welcome back, captain.



ls it over?



How is she, doctor?



She'll be fine.

But this is temporary.



We'll need to find the eighth

and final spirit to cure her.



Aki, can you hear me?



l finished it.



l know what it means.



l know what the Phantoms really are.



Nobody move! You're all under arrest!



We have them, sir.






My wife and daughter...



...were killed by Phantoms in the

San Francisco Barrier City.



Did l ever tell you that?



l try to imagine what

that must have been like...



...seeing everyone around you

fall over dead for no apparent reason.



And then, at the end,

feeling something next to you...






...touching you...



...reaching inside your body....



You've lost family, haven't you?



Yes, sir.



That's why l trust you.



All of you.



You know what must be done.



Security override.



Perimeter breach.



Major, arrest these men.



-Take it easy.

-Stand up. Go.



You are relieved of your post.

Don't ask questions.



Reduce power to Sector    .



You realize that the Phantoms--



What l realize...


            we must force the council

to take action.



  % of energy pipe alpha redirected.



Lowering power output to Sector    .



Barrier breach in Sector    .

They're coming through now.



We can handle

a few Phantoms in a contained space.



Relax, major. When this night's over,

you're going to be a hero.



-l don't--

-But you saw it.



l'm not sure what l saw.

How can you be?



Captain, please, let her continue.



Why do you think

we've never been able to determine...



...a relationship between the human-

sized Phantoms and the giant ones?



Excuse me, doc,

but what frigging relationship?



You got your human-sized Phantoms,

creepy caterpillary Phantoms...



...flying Phantoms and my favorite...



...the big, fat, giant Phantoms.



Down, boy.



lf you've spent time in the field...


            know there is no relationship.

lt's like a zoo out there.



l think the giant ones are

like our whales or elephants.



But why would an invading army bring

whales and elephants along?



Unless their ship was

a crazy Noah's Ark?



We have always assumed

that the meteor...



...was intended as a form

of transportation. Perhaps not.



The meteor is a chunk of their planet

that got thrown into space...



...when they destroyed their world.



But how could they survive the trip

across outer space?



They didn't.



This makes a creepy kind of sense.



What do you think?



l think that explains why

we never had a chance.



All our strategies are based

on one assumption:



That we were fighting alien invaders.



Think of the dream, Gray.

How they died.



Since then, all they've known

is suffering.



They're not an invading army.



They're ghosts.



How many Phantoms?



More than enough

to convince the council.



Excellent. Sound an alert.

Send a squad out to eliminate them.



Alert status. Full deployment.



l have numerous Phantom contacts!



Of course you do.



Outside of Sector   

and moving at incredible speed.



What the hell is going on?



They're in the pipes.



They're moving with

the bio-etheric energy flow.



That's impossible. Nothing

could survive in those pipes.



We've got a big one heading this way.

Meta class, sir.



Oh, my God.



Hold your fire!



What have l done?



Come on, Neil. We need a way out.

You're our man. Think.



These walls are titanium alloy

and the bars are pulse-sonic lasers.



lt's not like l can just

wave a magic wand and....



-Neil, l'm impressed.

-That makes two of us.



Proceed to the nearest

evacuation facility.



Proceed to the nearest

evacuation facility.



We should proceed

to the nearest evacuation facility.



-Here they come.

-But the others! Dr. Sid!



Deep Eyes'll take care of him.



Why can we see them now?



They must be carrying

a residual charge from the barrier.



Behind you!



All aboard, captain!



We need to find my ship.



lf it was towed here,

it would be in the military hangar.



That's a big '' if.''



Look out!



Get us onto the platform.



Okay, now what?



We're going through the station.



With all due respect--



-Excuse me, captain.

-The station.



We're going through it.



lt's the only way.



So l gather this will be

somewhat of a rough ride?



You've got a talent

for understatement.



Hang on, everybody!









-Anybody hurt?




Oh, God. Talk to me, sarge.






-Give me a hand.




We're risking further injury.

We need the proper tools.



They're in my ship.



-No. No, doc. No drugs.




You heard the man.



We'll be back.



-l'll stay with him.

-Me too.



Nobody's staying.



-Just give me a gun.

-You got it.



Give him a weapon. Do it!



We'll be back for you.



You hear me?



l hear you, captain.

Now, get out of here.



Let's move out.



A quad-axle ATV. This is good.



lt can be used to retrieve Ryan

and bring him here.



We'll need to replace

these spent fuel cells.



There could be some live ovo-pacs

in the hangar.



Check the hangar.

Neil, get us ready for takeoff.



Aki and Dr. Sid, prep the Quatro.



l'll go rotate the airtray.



This city may be lost, but we are not.

Let's do this and get out.



Be careful.



You too.



Oh, yeah.



Neil, do you read me?



Loud and clear, captain.



This baby'll fly itself.



Flight path is set.



Beginning rotation.



Stop the airtray. We have a problem.



An impound tractor

is attached to the ship.



Can you disengage from the cockpit?



Permission to go outside

and detach the coupling.



Do it.



There's the problem.



The controls are locked, naturally.



You think we'll get out of here alive?



l wonder if anybody else

has gotten out.



You think anyone's made it this far?



Will this eighth-spirit stuff

work against the Phantoms?



What if it's all mumbo-jumbo?



Can we stop talking?

l'm trying to concentrate here.



What's happening down there?



Nothing we can't handle.



-Neil, what's your status?

-Almost there.



Get back inside.



We're fine. Jane is negotiating

with extreme prejudice.



Talk to me, Jane.



No problem here, captain.



Yes! Captain, we are good to go.



Jane, get out of there.



Get out of there now! Go! Jane!



Get the hell out of there!



The shield is powered and ready.



-Where are you going?

-To the cockpit.



We're in countdown to liftoff.



No, wait. lt's too dangerous. Aki!



Over here, you son of a bitch!



Gray, do you read me?

What's happening?



You and Sid are getting

out of here now.



-No! We can't just leave everyone.

-Everyone's dead!



-l'm not leaving without you.

-Sorry, but you don't have a choice.



Goodbye, Aki.



Gray, come on!



l just....



l wish l could believe

they were in a better place.



l enlarged the scanning perimeter...


            include an area that

we had previously overlooked.



The impact crater.



Strange place

to find the eighth spirit.



Yes, really quite astonishing.



But nothing could survive

in there except Phantoms.






Which suggests that

the eighth spirit is a Phantom spirit.



l can't explain it at the moment,

but once we get down there...


            will understand--

-Wait, doctor. That's a one-way trip.



Yes, l expected that's how

you would evaluate our chances.



Well, am l wrong?



No, l agree. We probably...



...won't live long enough to extract

the eighth spirit from the crater.



Then why even try it?



Because we don't need

to extract the eighth spirit.



lf we can't bring

the final spirit here...



...we can go there and complete

the wave inside the crater.



Yes, exactly.



And how do we do that, exactly?



l can construct a device that...



...would attach to Aki's chest plate

to gather the eighth spirit and....



And what?



And then we wait

and see what happens.



That's it?



That's your plan?

We wait and see what happens?



Oh, good. Well, l got my own plan.



We keep scanning

the surface from orbit...



...and maybe we'll find

a compatible spirit somewhere else.



l say we go in.



What caused the barrier

to fail, General Hein?



l'm afraid it was

only a matter of time...



...before the Phantoms developed

an immunity to our barriers.



But l am relieved to see

that you and the council...



...were able to evacuate

to Houston without incident.



lt was a terrible loss

suffered this evening.



The council has reconsidered

your proposal to fire the Zeus cannon.



l see.



We are transmitting

the access codes to you now.



And, general...


            of luck to us all.



Prepare to fire the cannon.



The target, sir?



The Phantom crater.



Preparing to drop in three, two, one.



Powering the shield.



Okay, we're over the meteor.



Do you have it in sight, doctor?



There are so many of them.






Yes! l'm tracking the eighth spirit

along the crater's surface.



All right.

Now let's take a closer look.



Ready to fire in three minutes.



Ovo-pacs at maximum.

Transferring plasma flow to auto.



Counter-thrusters are engaged.



Lox flow de-coupled.

Status is green.



We have something on radar

over the impact site, sir.



lt's her.






Just a traitor under

the influence of the enemy.



Continue the countdown.



We'll take them all out

at the same time.



We're closing on the Phantom.

Contact in    seconds.



Target locked.



Ready to fire on your command.



lt's a match! lt's a perfect match!



-Scanners ready.




What was that?



lt's the Zeus.

They're firing on the crater.



-Are you all right?

-A little shaken. Stand by.



Sid, the eighth spirit is not

on our scanner. Do you have it?



The eighth spirit...



...has been destroyed.



-What will we do now?

-Nothing. This mission is over.



-Let's get out of here.




What is that?



lf you're getting us out,

you better do it now.



Hold on!



I can't hold on to you.



Unable to maintain altitude.



Emergency landing procedures.



Come in. Come in, please.



Aki, Gray, can you hear me?



l need to talk to the station.

Can you patch us through?



-What is that thing?

-l don't know, sir.



lncoming message, sir.



General Hein,

cease fire immediately.



What you're seeing is the living

spirit of an alien's home world.



Their planet was destroyed

and landed here.



This is not an invasion.

It never was.



l see. What have we been fighting

all this time? Ghosts?



Yes. Spirits that are confused,

lost and angry.



Right. And these spirits are

coming out of this Gaia thing.



You have to listen.



Alien Gaia, Earth Gaia.

Even if l believed that...



...the Earth's under attack

from an aggressor...



...who must be destroyed at all costs.



The cost may be

the entire planet, sir.



Firing on the alien Gaia

will only make it stronger.



Since you're under the alien's

influence, l'll take it that we're...



...taking the correct action.



So take your last few moments

and prepare to meet your Gaia.



Continue to fire until

the invader has been destroyed.



General, the system's overheating.



We'll hit again and keep on hitting

it until it's dead.



But we're not even sure

if it's having any effect.



No effect? We've got them

on the run, soldier.



This is our moment of victory.

l order you to fire.



-The system won't allow us to fire.

-We'll see about that.



Our shield is out.

We're sitting ducks. Come on!



This is not a good place to be.



What the hell is that?

ls it what l think it is?



Yes, it's Gaia.



This is definitely not

a good place to be.



Are you all right?



l'm fine. l have to talk to Dr. Sid.



Sid, do you read me?



Go ahead, l'm still here.



We're looking at Gaia.

Do you hear me, Sid? Gaia.



This explains why

the eighth spirit appeared here.






Yes, that's it!



A Phantom changed

into the eighth spirit...


            touching a life

born from our own Gaia.



lt would've gotten

a different energy signature...



...that set it apart from

the other Phantoms.



You couldn't have

hoped for a better location...



... to find a new compatible spirit.



Whatever you do, don't move.

Stay right where you are.



Staying where we are

isn't as easy as it sounds.



Don't shoot any of them!



You could very well

destroy our last hope.



What do you suggest?

Ask them to play nice?



Combat strategy is your area

of expertise, captain, not mine.



l have a reading in the fissure.

See it?



Yes! A compatible spirit.

lt must be very near you.



Well? Which one is it?

Which one?



It's difficult to narrow down.

Just a moment, please.



lt's getting crowded in here.

Aki, we don't have time.



With the hope of new life...



...has Gaia changed

the Phantom within?



l have it.



Gray, get in here. I need you!



Hear me, Sid?

The wave pattern is complete.



Yes, l read you. This is wonderful.



l don't see how you

found the final spirit.



lt found me, doctor.



Oh, my word.



l see now. l understand.



l don't understand!

What's going on?



The ovo-pac will project the wave.



-But we'll be defenseless.

-Just do it!



-l hope you know what you're doing.

-We'll use it to project the wave.



Dr. Sid was right.

l have it. The eighth spirit.



l'm cured, Gray.



-Are you sure you have it?

-Yes, l'm sure.



-How can you know?

-Don't worry. A Phantom told me.



Oh, great.



That's it. Shield on.



lt's not working.

We have to do something.



lf this doesn't work,

then it's already too late.



Trust me.



l'll blast you all to hell.



Oh, no. No!



Get down!



-Warning. System overload.

-l know.



-Warning. System overload.

-l know!



But it must be done.






Fire, damn you!






Don't leave me, Gray.



Told Sid this was a one-way trip.



Looks like l was right.



No, Gray. Hang on, please.



l still have the wave.



We can get through this.



-We won't make it.

-We will make it.



We both know that isn't true.



Help me.



Listen to me.



You saved my life once.

Now l want you to save yourself.



Gray, no. Please?



Let me do this, Aki. Trust me.



Don't leave me, Gray.



You've been saying

that death isn't the end.



Don't back out on me

now that l finally believe.



l love you.



Oh, it's warm.
