With distress calls lost to the planet's surrounding empty space and his life support system damaged beyond repair; Mr. 8040 exits his ship to brave the unknown world in the hope of finding help.
Weakened by the heavy atmosphere; Mr. 8040 collapses. He is awoken by the calming presence of a native woman who offers to guide him to someone that may be able to repair his ship.
Though frail and disorientated; Mr. 8040 moves forward, growing ever fonder of his new aquaintance. He is bestowed a small piece of her life force in order to aid him in the early stages of their journey.
Days pass and the pair reach The Reflective Forest; A beautiful, yet dangerous area of the planet in which time moves slower and the psychoactive environment can cause crippling hallucinations.
Tormented by the visions of his past; Mr. 8040 breaks down. He is uncertain of his ability to travel any further, but is reassured by his companion. By sundown they find themselves at the end of their journey; but it is not where Mr. 8040 had expected. It is the crash site of his ship and from within the flames a figure of static and noise walks towards him.
Face to face with the mysterious figure, Mr. 8040 realises that it is an apparition of his former self. Under the advice of the woman that saved his life, he knows that in order to continue he must let go of all that came before the crash, good and bad.
In a sudden burst of light, Mr. 8040 and the apparition become one. The light fades and his ship appears as though unscathed, his newfound muse waiting for him onboard.
With his mind and ship repaired, Mr. 8040 climbs on board. The pair leave the planet behind and embark on a new adventure deep into the unknown galaxy...
