A bumpy ride through an ion storm turns into a deadly ride through an ion storm. When part of the roof of the engine room collapses, Alara is asked to help lift pieces of debris off of trapped crewmates. When a fire erupts in front of her, she hesistates, and one of the engineers dies. She begins questioning her own abilities, even to the point of trying to hand Captain Mercer her resignation. She contacts her parents to ask if she suffered any trauma at a very young age due to a fire, and begins exploring what other fears might stop her in her tracks. But her attempts to scare herself mean that Alara will have to take an even riskier course of action that could well mean watching all of her friends and crewmates die before her eyes.
