Out of Orbit was a virtual representation of one of Ezio Auditore da Firenze's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.


Knowing that the Borgia hunted Nicolaus Copernicus, Ezio Auditore helped him escape from the guards.


  • Copernicus: Who are you that defends without cause?
  • Ezio: One who believes in freedom. Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
  • Copernicus: Ezio. They call me Niccolò Copernico. I have heard your name spoken at the Borgia court, but now I have proof that you truly exist.
  • Ezio: Il Vaticano (the Vatican) welcomes you, yet you are under attack by its guards?
  • Copernicus: You think me one of them? Truthfully, you would be right. Yesterday, I was a Templar.
  • Ezio: And today?
  • Copernicus: The Templars wanted me to keep the findings of my experiments hidden, and that I cannot do.
  • Ezio: The Borgia hunt for you and your friends.
  • Copernicus: My fellow scholars? The logic of such a purge escapes me.

A guard shouted from distance.

  • Guard: Find Copernico!
  • Copernicus: But we will discuss reasoning later.
  • Ezio: Follow me.

Ezio and Copernicus reached a secluded area near the Colosseum.

Copernicus asking Ezio to warn the scholars

  • Ezio: You will be safe here.
  • Copernicus: What of the other scholars?
  • Ezio: How do I know I can trust you?
  • Copernicus: How do you know anything? Knowledge gathering is a dangerous enterprise. Easier to stay in place, learning nothing, than to risk in order to truly know.
  • Ezio: All right. Enlighten me.
  • Copernicus: Take these letters to the scholars. They must be informed of the threat to their safety.


Ezio escorted Copernicus to a safe place, was requested to inform the other scholars in the city about the threat of the Borgia.
