Roy is finally forced to confront the awful truth that his father is way more disappointing than he was led to believe. But, because Roy is only human, he remains convinced he can bring his father back to Earth and they can sort through their issues on terra firma. Roy makes his way to the Lima Project space station and finds Clifford in a shaggier, moodier state than Helen's video message. Clifford has completely retreated into his own mind, far more comfortable looking to the stars (ahem, don't you mean "ad astra," Allie?) and the possibilities that await and giving up on humanity altogether. This includes forsaking Roy, the son he barely knew, and coldly demanding to be left to his mission in peace. Heartbroken, Roy gathers his wits and copies all data from the Lima Project archives. He also arms the space station with a nuclear payload because, as we learn throughout in the movie, a massive electrical called The Surge threatens all life on Earth and it's believed the Lima Project station is the cause of it. So, buh-bye, space station. Roy also manages to tether Clifford to him in an effort to get them both back onto Roy's ship, but Clifford begs Roy to untether him and let him drift out into the dark unknown, his true home, and Roy acquiesces. Once home, Roy embraces the Lima Project's ultimate conclusion that humans are, in fact, the only intelligent life in the known universe and begins embracing his human side by attempting to reconnect with his estranged wife (Liv Tyler). 041b061a72
