Fill 'er Up!

The crew moves helium storage bag #3 into position and begins to fold the fully deflated bag #2.

The bags empty from the top, and the helium is pumped into Eureka, again at the top, where it pools upward, pushing the heavier air out through her ventral ports.

The giant bags deflate slowly, going through the utterly mind-roasting 'Giant Jellyfish/Space Brain' phase.

And then, as the cloud of helium begins to struggle against the heavy bag, we move in the standard 'Abstract Elephant' phase. What a treat.
