Outline Series 01, Episode 09
With Dr. Scott back on board, the crew begins prepping for human testing of the vaccine. Six volunteer crew members are selected as test subjects, based on their genetics. However, the testing does not go smoothly, as the sailors suffer symptoms and side effects that are unexpected and far worse than anticipated by Drs. Scott and Tophet, who disagree on the cause and go to extreme measures to counter which all seem to fail. In the process however, Scott determines the virus causes a severe autoimmune response, turning the body into its own worst enemy. Scott is able to counter the effects and the trials are a success, though not without the loss of one of their own. Scott informs Chandler that they now have both a vaccine and a cure and can save those infected with the virus.
