Albert. I know it's not your fault, but it would really help me do my job if you'd bring me what I asked for. Thanks for your time.

Berkeley was an engineer on board the Aurora. Berkeley managed to escape in Lifepod 2 with his friend CTO Yu. It is presumed he died and Yu was forced to abandon him.

Pre-Crash

Prior to the crash of the Aurora, Berkeley and Yu were testing a new drone, and Berkeley asks the drone to retrieve a Propulsion Cannon for him, but the drone retrieves a Repulsion Cannon instead. Berkeley tells the drone to get him a Propulsion Cannon, and Yu tells him that it was like him; it doesn't like being told what to do. Berkeley begins to say that he knows, but Yu says that the drone's name is Albert now. He calmly asks the newly named Albert for a Propulsion Canon, which the drone retrieves for him. He tells the drone that it could go away now, and remarks to Yu that her hobby wasn't making any easier or safer.

Post Crash

After escaping with Yu, he asks her what they need to do, and Yu responds that they need to get a distress call, gear, and make it to the surface. However, Berkeley does not appear with Yu after she gets to the Floating Island, and it can be presumed that he was either killed, or Yu left him.

CTO YU: Flotation devices failed!

 *Sound of flooding*

BERKELEY: We're flooding, evacuate!

CTO YU: Wait, I can reconfigure the O₂ system to act as a bilge pump!

BERKELEY: It's working!

 *Crash*

CTO YU: OK, good news: we're alive, and we've stopped sinking.

BERKELEY: Bad?

CTO YU: The O₂'s going to run out in 30 minutes and we're 500 meters down.

BERKELEY: What do we do?

CTO YU: We use the remaining juice to send a distress call and build whatever gear we can, then we find a way to the surface.

BERKELEY: Drone, get me a propulsion cannon.

[Repulsion cannon retrieved]

CTO YU: Hey, Berkeley! Install that circuit box with that repulsion cannon and you'll punch a hole in the cargo bay.

BERKELEY: Damnit, drone, I said PRO-pulsion, not RE-pulsion. Recalibrate sensors!

CTO YU: Sensors aren't the problem. I tweaked the program. It's like you now, it doesn't like being told what to do.

[Sensors recalibrated]

BERKELEY: *Sigh* Drone, I know-

CTO YU: His name's Albert now.

BERKELEY: Albert. I know it's not your fault, but it would really help me do my job if you'd bring me what I asked for. Thanks for your time.

[Propulsion cannon retrieved]

BERKELEY: Thank you. Now go away.

[Entering hibernation mode]

BERKELEY: Boss, this hobby of yours ain't making my job any easier. Or safer.

CTO YU: Maybe so, but it's all that's stopping me taking a spacewalk in my skivvies. And you never know, Alterra might even buy the designs off me when we get home.
