Escape pod remote
Hand-held modular device designed to interface with the on-board computer systems of Martin Lloyd's vessels, from a five-person drop-ship to the mother vessel which remained in orbit of Mars for a period of time. It is also equally able to communicate with either craft.
The device is multi-functional, capable of transmitting data on the status of the escape pod's concealment (to determine if invaders have located or infiltrated the ship). It can also destroy the pod remotely.
Point of No Return - Martin steals the escape pod remote from Tanner and his men, and eventually realizes it holds the count-down to the detonation of the escape pod.
Wormhole X-Treme! - In an effort to conceal the device, Martin Lloyd places the escape pod remote in the hands of the prop masters of Wormhole X-Treme! to be used on set until the time comes to retrieve it. Tanner and his men later use the device to teleport to the arriving mothership.
