I used to think this was the beginning of your story.
我曾以为 你的故事 是从这里开始
Memory is a strange thing.
It doesn't work like I thought it did.
We are so bound by time,
Okay, come back to me.
Are you the sheriff in this here town?
These are my tickle guns, and I'm gonna get ya.
You want me to chase you? You better run.
I remember moments in the middle.
And this was the end.
But now I'm not so sure I believe in
beginnings and endings.
There are days that define your story beyond your life.
Like the day they arrived.
- Morning. - Morning.
- 早上好 - 早上好
Where is everyone?
Okay. Well, let's get started.
Today, we are talking about Portuguese
罗曼语族 属于印欧语系 包括法语 意大利语 西班牙语和葡萄牙语等
and why it sounds so different from the other Romance languages.
The story of Portuguese begins in the kingdom of Galicia...
- Sorry. - in the Middle Ages,
- 对不起 - 在中世纪
where language was seen as an expression of art.
Any news you wanna share?
Dr. Banks, can you turn the TV to a news channel?
...arrived here on scene,
but police have already set up a blockade here around the area.
As you can see, we've gotten just about as close as we can,
but unfortunately, Montana, right now, is on complete lockdown.
但遗憾的是 整个蒙大拿州 都已被封锁
The object apparently
touched down 40 minutes ago
just north of l-94.
We're waiting to hear if
this is perhaps an experimental vessel or...
I'm learning that more objects like this have landed
at as many as eight other locations around the world.
Yes. Can we...?
This is from a site in Hokkaido.
This is worldwide. It is happening right now.
That's... Class is dismissed.
For now, we're simply asking for cooperation
while authorities assess the object.
So, you're saying it's not ours?
Do you even know if it's from Earth?
We're still collecting information.
We're coordinating with other countries.
We are not the only ones to have one of these in our backyard.
If this is some sort of peaceful first contact,
Why not just one?
Yeah, I know. I saw that, too.
我知道 我也看见了 妈妈
I don't know, Mom. I'm watching the same news coverage you are.
我不知道 妈妈 我跟你看的是同样的新闻
Well, Mom, please don't bother with that channel.
How many times do I have to tell you those people are idiots?
Yeah, well, do I sound nervous?
Okay, exactly. So. ..
Me? Yeah. You know me, I'm about the same.
你问我吗 你知道我的 我就那样
Okay, I'll call you later. Bye.
好的 我会再打给你的 再见
And at around eight hours after landing,
there are still no signs of what might be called "First contact."
Now, the objects measure at least 1,500 feet tall.
Two are reported to have penetrated Russian airspace,
one in Siberia and the other off the coast of the Black...
...suspended above the ocean.
So far, there are 12
unidentified objects spread across the globe.
There is no obvious logic to their locations
and no evidence that the ships are even...
...who entertain the idea that if it is a kind of vessel,
it may be unmanned.
Regardless, we have a protocol
for scenarios like this, but...
After Tuesday's extraordinary events,
the President, this morning, has declared a state of emergency,
with as many as 5,000 National Guard being deployed
to the state of Montana alone.
Borders are closed and flights have been grounded,
stranding millions of travelers.
Panic buying of gas, water, and food
continues to escalate
and federal authorities have temporarily lifted all caps
on overtime for law enforcement.
The ATF has put a temporary ban on new gun licenses,
forcing many independent
suppliers of hunting equipment and firearms
to close their doors to the public.
Forty-eight hours later and no further development...
...from the sight of the 12 UFO...
And already the public expects us to know the answers.
I'm Colonel G.T.Weber.
We never formally met,
but two years ago, you did
some Farsi translations for Army intelligence.
You made quick work of those insurgent videos.
You made quick work of those insurgents.
You are on the top of
everyone's list when it comes to translations.
And you have another two years in the SSBI.
So, you still have top-secret clearance.
That's why I'm in your office and not at Berkeley.
也因如此 我没有去伯克利 而是来找你
I have something I need you to translate for me.
Can you... Can you understand us?
Where did you come from?
What do you make of it?
How many speaking?
Assume they were not speaking at the same time.
Are you sure? Did they have mouths...
How would you approach translating this?
Do you hear any words?
I don't... I don't know.
So, what can you tell me?
I can tell you that it's
impossible to translate from an audio file.
I would need to be there to interact with them.
You didn't need that with the Farsi translations.
I didn't need it because I already knew the language.
But this, this is...
I know what you're doing.
- Tell me what I'm doing. - I'm not taking you to Montana.
- 你说说看 - 我不会带你去蒙大拿的
It's all I can do
to keep it from turning into a tourist site
for everybody who has a TS clearance.
I'm just telling you what it would take to do this job.
我只是在告诉你 我需要做什么 才能翻译
This is not a negotiation.
If I leave here, your chance is gone.
You mentioned Berkeley, are you going to ask Danvers next?
Before you commit to him,
ask him the Sanskrit word for "War" And its translation.
An agreement on sharing
scientific discoveries looks closer tonight,
as Russia and China join talks at the United Nations.
Meanwhile, financial markets across the world are in crisis
as the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell over 2,000 points
in its worst weekly decline in history.
Gavisti. He says it means "An argument."
What do you say it means?
"A desire for more cows."
All right, give me 20 minutes?
We take off in 10.
Dr. Banks. Right this way, please.
Contact and ready to approach...
Excuse me, Dr. Banks,
let me make sure you're properly secured.
Sorry, I couldn't hear what you were saying.
"Language is the foundation of civilization.
It is the glue that holds a people together.
It is the first weapon drawn in a conflict."
发生冲突时 最先使用的武器 也是语言"
Louise, this is Ian Donnelly.
Louise Banks, Ian Donnelly.
It's quite a greeting.
Yeah. Well, you wrote it.
It's the kind of thing you write as a preface,
dazzle them with the basics.
Yeah. It's great.
Even if it's wrong.
Well, the cornerstone of
civilization isn't language, it's science.
Ian is a theoretical physicist from Los Alamos.
You'll be reporting to me,
but you'll be working with him when you're in the shell.
That's what they're calling the UFO.
Priority one. What do they want, where are they from.
最重要的问题 它们为何而来 它们从哪里来
And beyond that, how did they get here?
Are they capable of faster-than-light travel?
l have a list of questions that, you know, we can go over.
Starting with a series
of just a "Handshake" of binary sequences...
How about we just talk to them
before we start throwing math problems at them?
This is why you're both here.
I'll bring the coffee.
Coffee with some aliens.
All right. I want you to take these two to Dr. Kettler.
Follow the captain to Medical.
The procedure should take just a few minutes,
and then, we'll get started.
These men are gonna take care of your bags.
I'll take your cell phones.
Put these on. You're gonna wear them at all times.
Sir, they're here.
Louise Banks? Ian Donnelly?
When was the last time either of you have eaten?
- Last night. - Same.
- 昨晚 - 我也是
When's the last time you did something stressful?
Who was being carted off in the medevac?
Not everyone is able to process experiences like this.
I'm gonna get some blood from you
and give you an immunization dose that covers a battery of bacterial threats.
Would you sign these, please?
And roll up your sleeves.
Either of you claustrophobic?
Currently taking any medications? Allergies? Pregnant?
现在有服用药物吗 有无过敏物 是否怀孕
The booster is a kick to your system,
so you may experience some side-effects,
nausea, dizziness, headaches,
诸如恶心 头晕 头痛
a ringing in your ears like you have tinnitus.
You see what's happening to him?
How does this even work?
The readings do not change, but...
It's like we're insects on a piece of paper
and they're easing us out of the house.
At exactly 112 minutes and 19 seconds,
the gravity starts to shift and slides us out of the room.
Have you found a scientific explanation for it?
Like, is it for them?
No, we think it's for us.
The air doesn't seem to circulate inside the chamber,
so after about two hours, you run out of oxygen.
It doesn't take 18 hours
to pump fresh air into a room.
If their atmosphere is different from Earth,
it would certainly take hours
to rebalance the O2 content and pressure for us
every time they open their door.
So, you're saying they could suffocate us if they wanted?
This is Agent David Halpern with the CIA.
Let me get you two to your stations.
Remember, we need answers as soon as possible.
What do they want, where are they from, why they're here.
- This is the priority. - Yeah.
- 这是首要任务 - 好的
Everyone, this is Dr. Ian Donnelly.
He'll be running this team here.
Yeah, have they responded to anything?
Shapes, patterns, numbers, Fibonacci?
不论形状 图案或数字 比如斐波那契数列
We can't tell what they are saying when they respond to "hello,"
so don't get ahead of yourself.
What have you figured out?
We're just getting started.
- Good morning. - Good morning.
- 早上好 - 早上好
This is Dr. Louise Banks.
She'll be heading your team.
- Dr. Banks. It's a pleasure meeting you. - Hi.
- 班克斯博士 我很荣幸 - 你好
Dr. Banks is taking over the mission from Dr. Walker.
Dr. Banks, glad to see you.
That's your 15-minute warning.
You scuba-dive before?
What kind of radiation exposure are we walking into?
Nominal, these are just for safety.
So, is there any physical contact with the...
Am I the only one having trouble saying "aliens"?
There's a wall, like a glass wall. You can't get to them.
那儿有堵墙 像是玻璃墙 你碰不到它们的
So, what do they look like?
You'll see soon enough. Hurry up.

Repeat. Hazmat suits without assistance of
Wait, just a minute. A minute.
- All right. - Step on out, please.
- 好了 - 请迈步
You did better than the last guy.
That doesn't make me feel any better.
You both have till 0200 hours to figure something out.
Okay, what happens then?
Violence continues to spread across the US today
in the wake of the 12 landings.
The President has declared a mandatory dusk-to-dawn curfew
after the crackdown by the National Guard
failed to prevent a third night of looting across the country.
In North Dakota, 144 members of the St. Lawrence Pentecostal Cult
are feared dead after they set their compound ablaze.
Their website claims the arrival of the aliens
他们的网站声明 外星人的降临 乃是神迹
set in motion a prophecy that 12 sets of 12 should "follow the lamb."
We're up in 15.
You got any new intel?
Yeah, we've been playing back some of their sounds.
Where does that get you?
Well, they play audio back at us from an unseen source.
It's bits of conversation from the room, random clips of dialogue.
Really, we... We have nothing.
T-minus nine minutes to shell access.
T-minus nine minutes to shell access.
Look, I'm never going to be able to speak their words if they are talking.
But they might have some sort of written language
or basis for visual communication.
Okay. Let's get started.
Are you getting this?
Yes, sir. It's uploading back to base camp.
Okay, slow down, fellas.
好啦 慢慢来 伙计们
l don't wanna take away from your success in there,
班克斯博士 我承认 刚才我们走出了一大步
but, Dr. Banks, is this really the right approach?
Trying to teach 'em how to speak and read?
That's gotta take longer.
You're wrong. It's faster.
Everything you do in there I have to explain to a room full of men
whose first and last question is, "How can this be used against us?"
So, you're gonna have to give me more than that.
Captain James Cook's ship ran aground off the coast of Australia,
and he led a party into the country and they met the Aboriginal people.
One of the sailors pointed at
the animals that hop around and put their babies in their pouch,
and he asked what they were,
and the Aborigines said, "Kanguru."
It wasn't until later that they learned that "kanguru" means
"I don't understand."
So, I need this so that we don't misinterpret things in there,
otherwise this is gonna take 10 times as long.
I could sell that for now.
But I need you to submit your vocabulary words
before the next session.
And remember what happened to the Aborigines.
A more advanced race nearly wiped 'em out.
But it proves my point.
We think we were able to reproduce
some prime number sequences back at them.
So, that's something.
Well, congratulations. You're a parrot.
Well, it's a lot more than that, you cheeky bastard.
Don't you see? They can't seem to follow our algebra.
But complex behaviors? That clicks.
Well, that doesn't make any sense at all, does it?
The problem is, not everyone shares our policy of
外星人危机 第五日中国方面力求谨慎 大量武装在上海集结
being open with the aliens.
Have you met General Shang?
Call sign for him is "Big Domino."
Whatever Shang does, at least four other nations will follow.
- Louise, you have to gain ground today. - Okay.
- 露易丝 今天你必须有所突破 - 好的
- You have a vocabulary list for me? -I do.
- 你有今天的词汇表吗 - 有的
You're gonna teach them your name and Ian's?
Yes, so that we can learn their names,
if they have names,
and then introduce pronouns later.
These are all grade-school words.
No, no, no, not the top!
Okay, this is where you wanna get to, right?
- That is the question. - Okay.
- 就是这个问题 - 好的
So, first we need to make sure that they understand what a question is.
那我们首先 需要确保它们明白 什么是问题
Okay? The nature of a request for information
along with a response.
Then, we need to clarify
the difference between a specific "you" and a collective "you,"
because we don't want to know
why Joe Alien is here.
We want to know why they all landed.
And "purpose" requires an understanding of intent.
然后是"目的" 它们需要理解 何为目的
We need to find out, do they make conscious choices
or is their motivation so instinctive
that they don't understand a "why" question at all.
And... And biggest of all, we need to have enough vocabulary with them
that we understand their answer.
Stick to your list.
Don't add anything to it.
Gravity, 0.97. Oxygen level, 21.4%. Over.
重力加速度0.97 氧气浓度21.4% 完毕
Condor, Alpha's now in the main.
Setting up equipment and telemetry. Over.
Louise. I am Louise.
ls that a new symbol? I can't tell.
I don't know. I think it's the symbol for "human" again.
It just has a little curl on the end, maybe to indicate a question.
l don't know, Louise.
I think they're getting confused.
Dr. Banks, perhaps we should move on to the next word.
- It's okay, Nate. - What's going on?
- 没事的 内特 - 怎么了
Hey, hey, hey. What are you doing?
- Yeah, I'm fine. - Are you insane?
- 我没事的 - 你疯了吗
They need to see me.
She's taking off her hazmat suit. Dr. Banks!
You're risking contamination.
They need to see me.
She's walking towards the screen.
Request noted. Stand by for frag order.
Go back to your stations.
Now that's a proper introduction.
Ian, you want to introduce yourself?
Everybody dies, right?
Sir, Donnelly is taking off his hazmat suit.
Permission to abort?
Continue the session.
I think those are their names.
So, what are we gonna call them?
I was thinking Abbott and Costello.
- Yeah? - Yeah, I like it.
- 行吗 - 行 我喜欢
Team 1, exit your vehicle
and proceed directly ahead to the decontamination tent.
Leave your respirator on until you reach the equipment room.
Team 2, exit your vehicles
and continue to the decontamination tent.
Leave your respirators on
and do not hesitate until you reach the equipment room.
Well, I guess I don't need to tell you, you're putting yourself at risk.
There are no signs of radiation poisoning yet.
We'll see how your blood tests look.
For now, I'm gonna give you another boost.
Nothing else we can detect either,
but I'd give 'em a strong cocktail regardless.
It's the first time we've made significant progress.
We'll take the risk.
- Okay, honey... - What is going on there?
- 亲爱的.. - 到底发生什么了
- Honey. - ls there anything you can tell me?
- 亲爱的 - 你能和我说说吗
No... You don't need to worry, okay?
不能... 你不用担心 好吗
- How can I not worry? -Just calm down.
- 我怎么可能不担心 - 冷静点
Becky asked me if the monsters are going to kill Daddy.
Honey, it's not gonna happen.
You don't need to worry.
Please, I'm so scared.
All junior xenolinguistics and science personnel must observe
general curfew unless expressly authorized
for extended work hours by unit COs.
Curfew in effect as of 2200 hours.
Notice to all late workers, fire watchers
Effective immediately, midnight rations will be sewed all night.
Here are some of the many things we don't know about heptapods.
Greek. Hepta, "Seven." Pod, "Foot."
"Seven feet." Heptapod.
Trying to answer this in any meaningful way
is hampered by the fact that,
outside being able to see them and hear them,
the heptapods leave absolutely no footprint.
The chemical composition of their spaceship is unknown.
The shell emits no waste, no gas, no radiation.
Assuming that the shells communicate with each other,
they do so without detection.
The air between the shells is untroubled by sonic emission or light wave.
Are they scientists or tourists?
if they're scientists, they don't seem to ask a lot of questions.
Why did they park where they did?
The world's most decorated experts can't crack that one.
The most plausible theory is that they chose places on Earth
with the lowest incidence of lightning strikes.
But there are exceptions.
The next most plausible theory is that
Sheena Easton had a hit song
at each of these sites in 1980.
So, we just don't know.
How do they communicate?
Here, Louise is putting us all to shame.
这个问题 露易丝的进展 让我们相形见绌
The first breakthrough was to discover that there's no correlation
between what a heptapod says and what a heptapod writes.
Unlike all written human languages,
their writing is semasiographic.
It conveys meaning. It doesn't represent sound.
Perhaps they view our form of writing
as a wasted opportunity,
passing up a second communications channel.
We have our friends in Pakistan
to thank for their study of how heptapods write.
Because, unlike speech, a logogram is free of time.
因为 与口语表达不同 词符是不占用时间的
Like their ship or their bodies,
their written language has no forward or backward direction.
Linguists call this "nonlinear orthography,"
which raises the question,
"ls this how they think?"
Imagine you wanted to write a sentence using two hands,
starting from either side.
You would have to know each word you wanted to use
as well as how much space that it would occupy.
A heptapod can write a complex sentence
in two seconds, effortlessly.
It's taken us a month
to make the simplest reply.
Next, expanding vocabulary.
Louise thinks it could easily take another month to be ready for that.
Weber's looking for you.
Yeah, well, why do you think I'm hiding out here?
Nice out here, huh?
Yeah, it's a nice view.
Away from the noise.
You know, I was just thinking about you.
You approach language like a mathematician.
You know that, right?
I will take that as a compliment.
I watch you steer us around these communication traps
that I didn't even know existed.
I guess that's why I'm single.
Trust me, you can understand communication
and still end up single.
I feel like everything that happens in there
comes down to the two of us.
Yeah, it's a good thing though, right? You and I?
不过也挺好 对吗 你和我
Have you seen the jokers that we're working with?
I'm glad I got you.
Tonight, the first photograph of the aliens goes viral.
is a major risk factor at the Montana site,
so say environmental pressure groups.
Eight-hundred thousand march on Washington
to protest the government's handling of the crisis.
All this, and more special coverage.
First contact with whoever it is that is inside that thing,
and who do we have running the show? The government.
That's right, folks. The same government
没错 兄弟们 就是那个
who ruined our healthcare and bankrupted our military.
Look at these people.
Most of them don't even have guns.
We could be facing a full-scale invasion,
and our president is just willing to sit back
and let them waltz in and take our country.
We are falling asleep at the wheel, people.
You know what I'm talking about. I know you do.
What if the smartest thing we could do right now
would be to give them a show of force?
I'm talking about a shot across the bow.
I wanna hear what you think.
Caller number one, you're on the air. What do you think about all this?
第一位听众 你已上线 你有何高见
What's this word?
That's, like... The Earth is a planet.
Want to see my project from Miss Garriotfs class?
Yeah, little nose.
We had to make up our own TV show.
- And who are those two people? - That's you and Dad.
- 那两个人是谁 - 是你和爸爸
The show is called Mommy and Daddy Talk to Animals.
You know it's okay to be sad that your dad and I...
I know. I'm not.
'Cause we both love you very much.
I know. It's just a cartoon. Not real.
我知道 这不过是幅卡通 不是真的
I'm not sure it's something I can explain.
When was your last checkup with Dr. Kettler?
I'm gonna get some air.
- All right. - I'm fine. Yeah.
- 好吧 - 我很好
I need some sleep, but I'm fine.
You know, I was doing some reading about this idea that
if you immerse yourself into a foreign language,
that you can actually rewire your brain.
Yeah, the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis.
The theory that...
It's the theory that
the language you speak determines how you think and...
Yeah. It affects how you see everything. It was...
are you dreaming in their language?
I may have had a few dreams, but I don't...
I don't think that that makes me unfit to do this job.
Do you know Mandarin?
The voice you're about to hear
belongs to China's military chief,
We got a satellite feed here of who he's talking to,
if you want to look.
He's saying that each of the 12 is offering advanced technology.
And back again. And play.
"Our science team is attempting to decode the sets."
"Sets." I don't know what that means.
Something about advantage.
"Suits, honor, and flowers."
I don't know, that's all.
I don't know what it means either.
An hour ago, China mobilized forces.
And now, Russia is following suit.
Shang's about to start something.
Following suit, suits.
Suits. Honor. Flowers.
序数牌 字牌 花牌
Colonel, those are all tile sets in mahjong.
God, are they...
Are they using a game to converse with their heptapods?
Well, let's say that I taught them chess instead of English.
Every conversation would be a game,
every idea expressed
through opposition, victory, defeat.
始终是对战 胜利 失败
You see the problem?
If all I ever gave you was a hammer...
马斯洛的锤子理论 指人们习惯用自己最熟悉的方式去解决问题 而不理会这种方式是否合适
Everything's a nail.
We need to ask the big question.
Okay, let me know what temperature you use, okay?
好的 记得告诉我你们用的温度 好吗
No, this is the same as before.
Yeah, no, but between three and four.
- All right, time to go. - Okay.
- 好吧 我们该走了 - 好的
Ninety-six minutes remaining in the session. Over.
Heptapod purpose. Earth. What is your purpose?
七肢桶的目的 地球 你们的目的是什么
Do we only have Costello?
Okay. There you are.
But you saw what they wrote.
Using a word they don't fully understand.
- It could be just a request. - Or a warning.
- 可能只是个请求 - 或者一个警告
We don't know if they understand
the difference between a weapon and a tool.
Our language, like our culture, is messy,
and sometimes one can be both.
I think it's quite possible that they're asking us to offer them something,
not the other way around, like the first part of a trade.
So, how do we clarify their intentions beyond those two words?
Right away, we go back in and we clear this up.
就现在 我们再回去 问个清楚
It's more complicated than that.
How is it more complicated than that?
Colonel, the Secretary of Defense is on the line for you.
We need to sit on this information
till we know what it means.
So, we aren't sharing it with our enemies.
We have to consider the idea
that our visitors are prodding us to fight among ourselves
until only one faction prevails.
There's no evidence of that.
Just grab a history book.
The British with India, the Germans with Rwanda.
They even got a name for it in Hungary.
We're a world with no single leader.
It's impossible to deal with just one of us.
And with the word "weapon" now...
No confirmation yet.
What did they say?
China and Russia are off the grid. They aren't speaking to anyone.
Whatever they learned in their last session has them spooked.
We have orders to do the same.
Wait, these are our allies.
Colonel, you can't shut us down.
- Put us on radio silence. - Do it.
- 关闭无线信号 - 关闭
We received a message from the...
We need to be talking to each other.
You wanna talk to them? Find out what this means.
Base-camp talk is now offline.
No confirmation. They're offline.
委内瑞拉-已断线 日本-已断线苏丹-已断线 黑海-已断线
All interpreters stand down and report to unit coordinators.
所有翻译 全部撤出 并向协调员汇报
We've never re-entered a session before.
Look, Louise, trust me, okay? We've got time.
露易丝 相信我 好吗 我们还有时间
We've just gotta step on it, all right?
This is the alien message
said to have provoked the Chinese government
to withdraw their scientists from the international mission today.
In a statement, General Shang said,
"中国决定 不再相信外星人它们正试图分裂我们我们必须团结起来 保护全人类"——中国人民解放军总司令 商将军
"China no longer trusts the aliens
who want to divide us.
Humanity must be protected."
China has asked for immediate talks at the UN.
Alpha one-niner, this is Condor. Over.
阿尔法一杠九号 这里是指挥室 完毕
Alpha one-niner, this is Condor.
Captain Marks, Condor.
Not receiving transmission. Squelch twice if you hear mine.
Captain Marks, all escort groups are ordered to cease all activity.
马克斯上尉 所有护送人员 立即停止行动
No,no,no. Dr. Banks, you can't go in there.
不 不 不 班克斯博士 你不能进去
We just need to ask one question.
Dr. Banks, the session is finished. You can't...
班克斯博士 对话结束了 你不能...
You can't go back in. It's dangerous.
Look, we just need five minutes. Don't sweat it.
Marks, let them go.
So, what are we calling this, session 37?
No, 36, part two.
不 三十六 第二部分
Why they on their own?
We've been attempting to hail Captain Marks.
The escort units are not responding, sir.
Offer weapon. Question mark.
Are you offering us something?
Technology. Apparatus. Method?
技术 设备 方法
Yeah, see, this is a different word.
This segment, it's a lot busier.
Captain, on your 10.
Mutineers are to be apprehended without engaging.
We don't want to risk antagonizing our visitors. Over.
Security detail inbound, sir. T-minus four minutes remaining.
安保组来了 长官 还有四分钟
We need to see this through.
Okay, this is it. Lock and load.
好的 拿起武器 做好准备
We just need to hold them off until it's done.
Copy that. Warning shots and suppressive fire only.
收到 开枪示警 压制火力 不要轻举妄动
Load up and get to cover.
Stay fresh and we can avoid casualties.
Abbott wants me to write on the barrier.
Can you even do that?
I can't do it with both hands.
- Free fire! - Over there! I'm hit! I'm hit!
- 自由开火 - 在那边 我受伤了
Hey, hey, hey. Take it easy.
You suffered a concussion.
How are you feeling?
Same as you. He's okay.
Some soldiers. Been watching too much TV.
Now, take it easy. Take it easy.
The site's no longer secure.
We're standing by to evacuate.
Weber came and got him maybe 10 minutes ago.
But he wouldn't leave until he knew you were okay.
The whole tent is on the clock
to figure out whatever it is you were given up there.
This is all of it.
The feed wasn't interrupted by the explosion?
Not as far as we can see.
You see something?
I'm gonna need my team to get together with Louise's team.
I need everybody working on this.
Glad to see you're awake.
We need to go back in and we
need to explain to them this wasn't our fault.
- We can't go back inside. - We have to tell them... We have to.
- 我们不能再回去了 - 我们必须回去
What happened in there was an attack.
We can hope for the best,
but I have orders to prepare for retaliation.
We may have to evacuate.
No, that's the wrong move. As long as they stay, we have to stay.
我们不能疏散 只要它们在 我们就必须留下
Well, they're not leaving.
Why does this feel worse?
China is on the offensive.
They're positioning their military
to blow the alien vessel right out of the sky.
And if this happens,
we can't sit around waiting for retaliation,
The Air Force and infantry are standing by.
Tonight, China becomes the first world power
to declare war against the aliens.
Following the failure of
the diplomatic efforts of the United Nations,
China has confirmed that its language experts have, tonight,
delivered an ultimatum at the Shanghai site.
In a televised statement, General Shang,
Chairman of the People's Liberation Army,
said the aliens have 24 hours to leave Chinese territory
or face destruction.
And he urged all other world leaders to unite with China
and take a similar stance.
With a huge buildup of forces at their landing sites,
Pakistan, Russia, and Sudan
are thought to be following China's lead.
It can't be random.
It's going to take us years.
What's this term here?
What's this term for that thing like a...
Like a technical term?
Where we make a deal and we both get something out of it?
Like, it's a competition, but both sides end up happy.
More science-y than that.
If you want science, call your father.
It's okay. I'm up.
It's time you open that bottle you've been hiding.
You cracked something, didn't you?
Take a look at this section.
It seems to be talking about time.
There's symbol for time, it seem everywhere.
So, what is this?
A formula for faster-than-light travel?
There are too many gaps.
Then it dawned on me.
Stop focusing on the ones, look at the zeroes.
How much of this is data? How much of it is negative space?
So, I measured it.
Perhaps you'd like that as a fraction.
What they're saying right here is that this is one of 12.
We are part of a larger whole.
Or we're one of 12 contestants for the prize.
Why do I have to talk to him?
We're all working together here.
We need to talk to the other sites.
We need to help them with
what they've gotten from the other heptapods.
In case you don't remember, we're blacked out.
我得提醒你 我们已经退出合作 停止交流了
China just threatened to destroy their shell. We're on our own.
Yeah, but this says that all of the pieces fit together.
And I'm telling you that no one else cares.
Two hours ago, we pulled
this audio off a secure channel in Russia.
Someone on the science team there was broadcasting wide.
in their final session, the alien said, "There is no time.
在最后一次对话中 外星人说 "没有时间了
I feel we have all been given weapons.
If anyone is receiving this, please...
There are a lot of ways you can interpret what he's saying.
I don't need an interpreter to know what this means.
Russia just executed one of their own experts
to keep their secrets.
"Many become one" Could just be their way of saying,
"Some assembly required."
Why hand it out to us in pieces?
Why not just give it all over?
Well, what better way to force us to work together for once?
Even if I did believe you,
how in the world you gonna get anybody else to play along
or give up their data?
We offer ours in return.
非零和博弈 一种合作下的博弈 博弈中各方的收益总和不是零值 存在双赢的可能
It's a non-zero sum game.
Nine of the landing sites have gone total comms blackout.
Only way to reach them is to physically drive there and yell
at the border guards, which we're doing,
but it won't be fast enough.
There's got to be a way to... To get the message to them.
To our allies maybe,
but at this stage, it's too little too late.
What we need is to get all the other nations online
before one starts global war,
and there's no way for us to reach them.
Wait. Hold on a second.
It's right above us.
That's problematic for us right now.
The Pentagon's convinced our shell will retaliate.
My guess is they'll order us to evacuate within the hour.
Look, they're not our enemy.
They've made no act of aggression towards us.
Maybe this is their way of being aggressive.
That's not the question.
Well, what is the question?
How do we get you back in
that room when it's half a mile straight up?
I think our work here is done.
It's in the hands of our superiors now.
What the hell is she doing?
No. God. Oh, God. No.
不 不 我的天呐
I need you to...
I need you to send a message to the other sites.
What is your purpose here?
How can you know the future?
Who is this child?
The show is called Mommy and Daddy Talk to Animals.
- Dr. Banks! - Louise!
- 班克斯博士 - 露易丝
- Hey. You all right? - Yeah.
- 你还好吧 - 我没事
- Here, come on. What happened? - I'm fine.
- 过来 发生什么了 - 没事
Tried to figure it out. This is too big.
Doesn't matter now. We have orders to evacuate.
都不重要了 我们收到指令 准备撤退
- Why? - Russia and Sudan are following China.
- 为什么 - 俄罗斯和苏丹准备效仿中国
Ian. I don't understand why the...
What day is it? Do you know, baby?
今天是什么日子 你知道吗 宝贝
Are you gonna leave me like Daddy did?
Hannah, honey, your daddy didn't leave you.
汉娜 亲爱的 你爸爸没有离开你
You're gonna see him this weekend.
He doesn't look at me the same way anymore.
I told him something that he wasn't ready to hear.
Well, believe it or not,
I know something that's going to happen.
I can't explain how I know. I just do.
And when I told your daddy, he got really mad.
And he said I made the wrong choice.
What? What's going to happen?
It has to do with a really rare disease.
And it's unstoppable.
Kind of like you are.
Your swimming, and your poetry,
and all the other amazing things that you share with the world.
I just realized why my husband left me.
My husband left me.
Come on. Let's get out of here.
Why is my name Hannah?
Yeah, got it right here.
Get those people back, please.
Well, your name is very special
because it is a palindrome.
It reads the same forward and backward.
无论正着念 还是倒着念 拼写都一样
- All right, guys, give me a hand here. - Yes, sir.
- 好了 过来搭把手 - 是 长官
That goes in the back.
Civilian contractors must have their authorization badges
and passkeys when checking...
Look, we're done here.
We're taking this with us.
- I know what it is. - What?
- 我明白了 - 什么
It's not a weapon, it's a gift.
The weapon is their language.
They gave it all to us. Do you understand what that means?
So we can learn Heptapod,
if we survive.
If you learn it, when you really learn it,
you begin to perceive time the way that they do.
So you can see what's to come.
But time, it isn't the same for them.
- It's non-linear. - Look.
- 它是非线性的 - 听着
We did our best, but it wasn't enough.
The captain will load you up.
You're lifting off in five minutes.
Ian, Louise, it was an honor to work with ya.
伊恩 露易丝 很荣幸与你们共事
I'm gonna find out where we're going.
The pleasure is mine, really.
Your President said
he was honored to host me at the celebration...
- Yes. - ...but I confess,
- 当然 - 但坦白讲
the only reason why I'm here is to
meet you in person.
Me? Well, I'm flattered. Thank you.
见我吗 太荣幸了 谢谢
Now, 18 months ago,
you did something remarkable.
Something not even my superior has done.
You changed my mind.
You're the reason for this unification.
All because you reached out to me
on my private number.
Your private number.
General, I don't know your private number.
I do not claim to know how your mind works,
but I believe it was important for you to see that.
I called you, didn't I?
- All right, let's shut down the system. - Sir.
- 好了 关闭系统 - 长官
There's a sat-line here dialing China.
Here? What do you mean "Here"?
It's your phone, sir.
Search base camp now.
Find out who's using that phone.
-Hold on to those coordinates. -Yes, sir.
- 盯紧坐标 - 是 长官
Come on. What'd I say?
What'd I say? Come on.
I will never forget what you said.
You told me my wife's dying words.
Found the source of the phone call.
It's in the clean room. Waiting for instructions.
- What are you doing? - Changing someone's mind.
- 你在干嘛 - 说服一个人
Can you buy me 20 seconds?
We don't have time for this right now.
No, trust me, buy me 20 seconds. Do you trust me?
不 你相信我 就二十秒 你相信我吗
- Okay! Yeah. - You trust me?
- 好吧 好 - 你相信我对吗
Drop the phone now or we shoot!
- Drop it! - Yeah. I'm sorry!
- 放下电话 - 抱歉
You're committing an act of treason!
- Yes. - Drop it!
- 好 - 放下
It's done. I'm done.
Communications blackout from all 12 landing sites
continues this evening.
Hold on, we are just hearing...
we're going to cut this report
to tell you breaking news.
Breaking now, China has called an emergency press conference.
Commander-in-chief of the People's Liberation Army,
has announced in an emergency press conference
that China is standing down.
China is stating that all intelligence they have received
will be shared immediately with all the other landing sites.
Scientists from around the
world are sifting through information received
- from the UK, Japan... - Breaking news,
- 从英日等国获取的数据 - 最新消息
the Russian armed forces are now revealing the information
they've acquired from both of their landing sites
and have declared the Black Sea a demilitarized zone.
...one of the 12 pieces of
this puzzle that's being slowly put together.
This is where your story begins.
The day they departed.
Despite knowing the journey and where it leads,
and I welcome every moment of it.
- H-A-N-N-A-H. - H-A-N-N-A-H.
- 正着念 H-A-N-N-A-H - H-A-N-N-A-H
Now backward. H-A-N-N-A-H.
You ready, baby?
- You good? - All right. See ya.
- 你可以吗 - 没事 待会见
Daddy's gonna roll over you.
All right, you ready?
Guess what? Star stuff.
- Ian. - Yeah.
- 伊恩 - 怎么了
If you could see your whole life from the start to finish,
would you change things?
Maybe I'd say what I feel more often.
You know, I've had my head tilted
up to the stars for as long as I can remember.
You know what surprised me the most?
It wasn't meeting them.
It was meeting you.
I forgot how good it felt to be held by you.
You wanna make a baby?
