Everything has quit working ... except the (objective) Earth Time Clock in the starboard side of the cockpit... though it no longer shows (subjective) Ship Time.   Note the two reel-to-reel tapes to the right of the chronometer station.

Virdon cautiously enters the spacecraft.  That looks like fiber optic cable hanging near him... Even the seats have been ripped out of their mounts!

Burke enters the spacecraft.

Virdon and Burke look around, dismayed at the wanton destruction.

Burke sees the chronometer station is at least still partially functional and makes his way through the debris.

The first picture we have of an ANSA astronaut and his family... a link back to the past.

In the episode "The Legacy", we find that Virdon's son was named "Chris".
In the episode "The Surgeon", we find out that his wife was named "Sally".
