Stasis interrupted. Fire in cryogenic compartment. Repeat, fire in cryogenic compartment. All personnel report to emergency escape vehicle launch pod. Deep-space flight will commence in T-minus twenty seconds.
Early in the film the interior of the EEV is a mess, having been smashed up by the crash. However, as the movie progresses, it seems to be in a better and better condition and at the end it seems to be almost intact. It is not a plausible explanation that the interior of the wreckage was cleared up by the inmates on Fury 161 when they were removing the bodies of the rest of the crew and possibly looking for salvage because there is no point that they restore the neuroscanner and the related equipment since (as it is mentioned several times throughout the movie) they have neither the technology nor the knowledge required for any sophisticated equipment.
The 20th Century Fox fanfare that plays during the opening studio logo segues ominously into the score of the film.
