It said it was 85 minutes long.
Weird my downloaded version was only 1 hour and 5 mins
1:05:55 ==> 65 min. long.
The gravity on board is now easily explainable by ... EARTH! And I'd like to see the size of the T-shirt cannon they used to eject that coffin into "space"!
Maybe Hoffer was watching commercials too.
They still have some communication with Earth... it's possible that they were able to update their technology with what they could fabricate on board?
Or else we're just supposed to think it was secret technology only available to the military in the 1960's.
So did they orchestrate all that to get the actual killer off the ship? Surely they know who killed her if they are keeping such a close eye on them right?
You're forgetting about the ol' "blind spot".
Watched part one (delayed) last night ... another kinda boring SciFry film -
got the Roamio set to record parts 2 & 3 - but I dunno ... its just not compelling ...
Too many holes in the plot to make it even remotely believable. The number of black crew members would not have happened in the timeline they suggest (i.e., late 50's or early 60's). The technology to launch a ship of that size wasn't even on the drawing board yet. The idea of a video module is too far advanced for that time period. There is far too much open space within the spacecraft to make it believable as they would have to use every cubic inch to conserve space. And a swimming pool? Any water on board would have to be reserved for drinking and food preparation.
OTOH, I'm sucked in so I'll watch the last two episodes just to see how much farther they can stretch the truth. It's already passed well beyond the science part and entered the world of total fiction.
But it's not the 50's or 60's, its present day, we have a black president today. Blacks just overcame adversity over the last 60 years on the ship just like they did here on earth.
At least, that's what they are trying to communicate, the show writers and producers would be racist if they didn't.
Yes, and note that the black man in a position of power is depicted as working his way up from the "lower levels."
I called it half way through that they were still on earth. The wife said no, but I told her there is no way that the ship could have been built in the 50's or 60's and got into space (With Gravity). I figured they were on a TV set though and were asleep for the first few years. But the little girl still has me wondering what is really going on.
Sure, but the ship supposedly launched back in that time frame. How many blacks were in a test pilot program or became astronauts back then, not to mention how many were unlikely to be in a position of power in the military? I'd wager the numbers were pretty low back then. It's not a question of being racist but rather realistic to the social climate at the time.
how did they have the technology for the simulation stuff outside in the 50's or 60's is my question. If the simulation has been going for that long how could they have replaced or upgraded the "star field" simulation.
The show takes place in present day, he is a second generation crew member. There is no indication that any of the first generation "people in power" were black. His mom and dad may have been in charge of cleaning all the toilets on the ship, who knows.
Also, I'm assuming they are not a complete time capsule from earth, surely over the last 60 years they have received word that Black people can be Military Leaders right?
Plus the kids who were chosen were apparently chosen for their genetic potential to become or spawn mutants like Christa. So I suspect race didn't play into their calculations.
The military desegregated in 1948. Colin Powell was an army officer in 1958 and a Major by 1968.
I did not know that. It's good to learn that our military was more progressive in this regard than the rest of our society. It's a shame that it took so long for the rest of us to catch up.
Well, Gil Bellows is fruitier than a nutcake. And has a God complex. Like his old man.
I did get a chuckle out of little Christa's 60s era iPad.
Something that hit me when I noticed a big ring on a guy's hand. Who makes the jewelry? And some of the other puff stuff? With a 600 person crew, I'd think that those not busy with the daily tasks of feeding the crew or keeping a 50 year old rust bucket from falling apart in "space", wouldn't have the spare time to make rings. Or perfume. Yeah, I know that they reclaim and recycle, but still.
Wow, Gault's head wound sure healed quickly.
And what's the deal with the seahorse anyway?
