Seen inside a place


Before its implosion in "Live Together, Die Alone", DHARMA Initiative station three, the Swan, contained a 108-minute countdown timer, connected to the station's computer. The timer would only reset by entering the Numbers into the station's computer and pushing a button. Failure to enter the Numbers within the last 4 minutes of the countdown cycle resulted in an audible alarm, which lasted during the remaining minutes until the timer reached zero. The alarm would then end, and the Timer's numbers would be replaced by black and red Egyptian hieroglyphs. Simultaneously, a recorded voice would begin to repeat "system failure" over the station's speaker system.
