However while en-route to the base he is the victim of an ambush, unable to see in the overtly harsh conditions of a complete whiteout. He crashes hard into the snow, being knocked completely unconscious by the impact only to be quickly covered over by snow.

*Due to severe damage sustained in the crash, and the sheer amount of snow already covering him Shatalov is unable to move when he awakes. His communications systems proving broken as well in the crash. He's trapped in his suit, his suits life support systems kicking in in order to keep him alive.

*For twenty six years Valentin is trapped alone beneath the snow and ice. Unable to even die with the way his suit has been wired together. His body atrophies to an extent, and he finds himself driven almost mad by the isolation, with only a meager collection of music to keep him company.

In their closer examination the team find Valentin is still alive, in his own personal metal coffin. In their rush to get him to safety the team manage to set Shatalov free from his prison, who takes his one chance to escape, severely injuring a number of the scientists when he suddenly kicks from a stop to mach 7 in his attempts to escape from people who he thinks seek to take his suit from him.
