The Transcript For This Page
Medium close-up on Pilgrim. He's looking upward, with an expectant expression. He's wearing a black tricorn hat, with gold trim. There's a black cape (also with gold trim) draped around his shoulders. Behind him we can see a bit of wall and above it, stars.
Caption: The destination Pilgrim chose for his intrepid tax refugees was Vesta, second-largest of the Belt's planetoids.
Caption: Pilgrim had arrived early, to reconnoiter and make preparations for his 141 colonists.
Pull back to a full-length shot of Pilgrim. In addition to the hat and cape, he's wearing black thigh-high boots with gold fittings over black trousers, and a matching black waistcoat over a gold shirt.
Caption: He came dressed in his finest anarcho-garb for the occasion, in the highest of style.
Medium shot of Pilgrim, glancing around and noticing some old-hand Vestians, dressed in practical work-clothes, giving him funny looks.
Pilgrim (thought): Simple yeomen, working their mining claims.
Pilgrim (thought): Salt of the earth, but hopelessly backward, culturally.
Now Pilgrim is standing by a gateway, as his colonists file out, rather haphazardly in the ultra-low gravity. He is handing them flyers.
Pilgrim: Welcome to Vesta, colonists! We're having a meeting in, uh, two hours. Here's the info.
One of the colonists, a woman: Where's our luggage?
Medium two-shot of a smiling Pilgrim and another colonist.
Pilgrim: Baggage claim is to your right, just follow the signs.
Colonist: Is there a -- skycap, or spacecap, or whatever? I'm having a devil of a time in this sorry excuse for gravity.
Pulling back a bit, Pilgrim smiles gamely as the colonist and some others move along.
Pilgrim: Heh-heh. I'm afraid that in the frontier, things are still a bit rugged. But there is taxi service to the hotel.
