Boris' quarters - Climb the steps and enter the quarters. See the former cosmonaut drunk. Talking to him is useless. Pick up the vodka bottle on the floor. He goes out for air and watch him fall off the railing. Guess we have to get him conscious enough to talk. Go back inside the quarters and look at the open cabinet above his chair. Take the key and letter about The closure of the Voralberg Spring Loaded Launch Pad Project and the laying off of all the test pilots. Poor Boris!
Go outside and look at the control panel. Insert the key at right silver lock. Go down and around towards Boris and see a wheel by the railings. Turn the wheel to open the water line. Go back to the control panel. Click above the inside vertical lever. Watch where the water flows. Move Boris to that area by clicking to the left of the horizontal lever and then click above the outer vertical lever. Now, revive Colonel Boris Charov by clicking above the inner vertical lever. Talk to Boris about everything, especially about Hans and bird. Hans help build the Russian space program but stopped when he realized it was for dropping bombs. Soyouz, the last mechanical eagle takes care of the birds around the overhead rails.
Space Compound - Turn to the right and enter the space compound. Look at the space ship Hans build. Go to the right and forward. See all the birds around the airship. Climb the metal steps to the airship. Go back and talk to Boris about the airship. He gives the airship key. Go back and enter the airship using the key. Pull the lever and realize that it does not work. Go down and go to the left side of the space compound.
Spaceship controls - Talk to Boris and he makes a deal with you about the airship. He wants to get up to the stars to live his dream and he will tell you about the airship. Climb the metal stairs to the control room. Take Voralberg key and insert it on the cross shaped lock - switches on the control panel. Open the rectangular plate on the right of the panel. Attach the 2 lines together. Push the round knobbed lever up. Take the blood testing apparatus on the right. Go down and get blood from the pilot - Boris by clicking the blood testing apparatus on him. Go back to the control panel and insert the blood testing apparatus in its square slot. Click the syringe icon button and Boris' blood was rejected because of too much alcohol. Guess we have to use Kate's blood by clicking on the blood testing apparatus. That accepted it since the light turned yellow. Click the left most button to raise the container that carries the pilot to the spaceship. Light is yellow on that also. Click the button of the 2 arrows to take the pilot to the ramp. See Boris walk up to the ship and when he says that he is ready, press the triangle button. What is the secret of the airship? Boris throws a crank on the floor of the compound. Thumbs up!! There he goes and Boris' dream is fulfilled.
Foghorn - Go down and pick up the red crank handle by the entrance to the space compound. Go to the ladder to the left of Boris' quarters and the big round cage tower. Climb up and go to the back ramp to the foghorn. Use crank handle on red hole on the foghorn stand. That releases Soyouz, the mechanical eagle from his cage and scares away all the birds from the airship.
Airship - Go to the airship and pull the lever and enjoy the ride.
Exit the spaceship and go forward until the hotel. <Get a call from the obnoxious Mr. Marson>. See a railway area on the north, winder-ready for Oscar's train. Look at the fountain. Enter the hotel.
To get to enter the Spa:
Hotel reception area - Talk to Felix Smetana about everything. Try to get to see Helena. He goes back watching the game on TV. Go to the left screen and then bottom screen.
See a gate to the spa area and a door to the utility room. Enter the utility room and get the detergent form the cabinet. Exit to the fountain outside. Pour the detergent in the fountain. Go back inside and open the curtains facing the reception desk. Try to talk to Felix but he is busy watching TV. Ring the bell on the desk. He sees the fountain.
Enter the reception desk area and look at the Register book. Look at 5/6/1981, Helena Romanski, resident and her code is 1270. Pick up the brochure of the Edenor Hotels, look inside and see that a phone number for their hotel in Paris, The Meurizt is written - 46433643. Press the red button on the counter to open the door to the Spa area.
Spa - Enter and go to the right and around to the opposite end, passing a raised thermal pool, a chessboard and a close door. Enter the alcove at the opposite end of the entrance and get a crystal dish.
Lounge - Go forward and talk to the automaton with a wheel chair. Talk to James, the automaton nurse of Helena. Talk to him about everything and find out that an admirer of Helena made him. He looks exactly like Oscar and that Helena is doing her daily constitutional by the sea at the end of the pier. He knows Hans but Helena had a disagreement with Hans and was forbidden to talk about him.
To get to the pier:
Pier door - Go to the right screen and see a console by the door to the pier. Try entering Helena's code - 1270 and pull the lever, but that does not open the pier door. Go to bottom of the screen and enter the baths again. See that the closed door is open now. Enter the locker room and pick up the access card with a temporary code of 0968 off the floor. Go back to the pier door console and enter 0968. That opens the door. Go in and pick up a gas mask from the wall.
Pier - Exit and by the door, see a stand at the bottom of the screen. Walk down to the end of the pier to the gazebo and talk to Helena. She wants you to call her valet, James and they will talk inside. Try to go down the gazebo but Felix arrives very angry. Helena stops him from forcibly taking Kate out of the hotel. Go down the gazebo and look close at the bell stand on the left side. Pull the chain several times and then go in to talk to James. Place the gas mask back on the hook. He will not come out because he did not hear the bell. Go back and take the bell from the stand and bring it to the stand close to the pier door. Hang the bell on the stand and pull the chain ( clicking at 2 different places on the chain produces different bell sounds).
Lounge - Talk to James again. <Mom calls>. James wheels Helena inside. Talk to Helena about everything. Learn that George the barman at The Meurizt in Paris has concocted a miracle cocktail that gave Helena her voice back one time when she lost it before a performance of Tatiana. She calls Hans her sweetheart.
To make the Blue Helena:
Lounge - Use the cell phone and dial the number for The Meurizt taken from the brochure on the reception counter - 46433643, press send. Get connected to the bar and ask for George. He is gone but the new barman reads a list of the recipes he left. Blue Helena - a measure of vodka, a measure of Blue Curacao, a measure of honey, dash of lime and ice cubes. Shake together.
Honey - Open the cabinet at the base of the bar. Take the cut lemon and the crystallized honey. The honey is solid and must be liquefied. Go to the spa area and to the raised thermal pool by the chessboard (which is now used by 2 men in a pool). Turn the wheel on the wall to raise the temperature of the pool and then place the honey on the now heated pool to get liquid honey. Go back to the bar.
Bar - Look close at the bar. Place the lemon on lemon squeezer at the left side top row. Place liquid honey at empty contraption at right end of top row. Pick up the rolled paper by the top counter and find the list of liquor with the corresponding music signs. A bottle is missing from the bottle dispensers. Place vodka on slot beside the honey of the top row of bottles. Press the red I/O button to turn the machine on.
Remember that the base clef sign on the bar is on the left and the treble clef is on the right. So read the list of alcohol turned to its side with the base clef on the left and the treble clef on the right. Press the second from the left piano key to get a measure of vodka while the switch is on the base clef sign - original position. Flip the switch to the right and then press the 3rd from the left piano key to get a measure of Blue Curacao. Press the honeycomb button to get a measure of honey. Press the lemon button to get a dash of lemon. Press the snow icon button to get ice cubes. Press the barman icon on the right to shake the cocktail. A cocktail comes out and Helena drinks it. If it is wrong, Helena will be upset. Just make a new one and check the switch. If successful, Helena will sing and she thinks that her voice is bad and that the George's cocktail did not work. Kate and James think otherwise. Helena has lost her confidence.
Talk to Helena again and James remembers that she tests her voice in breaking a crystal glass. Place crystal glass at the end of the bar by Helena. Talk to Helena again and she will sing. The crystal glass breaks and she gains confidence. She will go with you to Komkolzgrad but James will be left behind. Kate will get the airship ready. <Kate gets a phone call from Olivia and hears Olivia's confession about her new relationship with Dan, Kate's fiancée>.
Watch and listen! Helena arrives in the airship and they travel to Komkolzgrad. Helena sings! Applause! Magnificent! A cage drops over her and the insane Borodine traps Helena.
Stage - Climb up to the stage and calm the petrified Helena. Look close at the padlock of the cage. Use the metal sheers on the padlock. Look close at the automaton organist and use the screwdriver on the hands to get Oscar's hands.
Go down and go to the bottom of the screen. Kate meets Helena, opens the metal door and Helena walks in. A gate comes down to seal the door and Borodine wants Helena and the hands back. Kate gives Oscar's hands to Helena, bides her to go to the train and get Oscar to prepare for departure. Kate will try to escape.
Mine shaft - Go to the top of the screen to the mine elevator. Go forward to the other end. The door behind gets blasted. Pull the lever to get the elevator down. The elevator comes down with dynamite on it and explodes sealing that end also. Now, Kate is trapped. Go forward and enter the ventilation duct.
Go to Oscar at the engineer's cab. Talk to him and he said to take a seat at the coach and regulations will be ignored for the moment. The giant worker automaton moves closer to the train.
Train coach - Go to the train coach. <Dan calls and tells Kate of his day without mention of Olivia until Kate did so. Their relationship, Kate's change of attitude and outlook are discussed>. The train is still not moving.
Automaton - Go back out and talk to Oscar, he says that there are rods that came out of the giant automaton and it blocks the train. Go to the blasted mine elevator and see an open crate at the bottom of the screen. Look close and take the dynamite. Go to the giant automaton. Place the dynamite on the automaton's leg. Kate runs to the coach and tells Oscar - Let's get out of here! Watch the automaton explodes and falls on the industrial complex.
James takes Helena back to the hotel. Get off the train and notice snow on the ground. Go to the other end of the train platform. Talk to Oscar. Kate and Oscar are good friends now. Oscar is evolving. Crank the wheel of the winder and then pull the lever.
Hotel Lobby - Go inside the hotel, ring the bell and talk to Felix. Go back to Oscar and talk to him again specifically about Kate and mission. Felix rushes out and says that there is a package on the counter for Miss Walker. The package mysteriously appeared on the counter.
Go back to the hotel and look in the box at the end of the receptionist counter close to the TV. Pick up the mammoth automaton. <Get a call from obnoxious Marson >. The phone rings on the counter and Felix informs Kate that Helena wants you at the bar.
Lounge - Talk to Helena. Helena expresses her feelings about her fame and illness. She talks about Hans and says that maybe you should meet the plane for New York that brings in the supplies. James also says that the air is clearer since the snow has removed the salt in the air and it is good to take a constitutional.
Pier - Go out to the pier and finally meet Hans Voralberg. Kate talks to Hans and tells him about Anna and the factory. It was suppose to be Anna on the train. He signs the contract without reading it because he cannot read. < Marson calls and Kate tells him the contract is sign. Marson already has another big case for her. He jokingly says not to lose the contract on the way home>. Hans says that he will now ride on the train and will go to Syberia. Hans asks Kate if she will ride the train with him. Kate stutters and Hans says maybe take the airplane that goes to New York then. Kate leaves and goes to the airplane.
Kate struggles to make a decision.
Kate makes her decision.
