    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (6)

      • During his countdown, it takes Alan eight seconds to get from 7 seconds to 5 seconds.

      • The computer voice does not match what is written on the screen. The screen shows "Resources capable of sustaining human life", but the voice says "Resources to sustain human life unlimited."

      • After the landslide, the wind somehow manages to move several rocks which should be impossible short of there being a tornado.

      • Eagle 1 lands on the pad with it's port side towards to the docking tube, but later shots show the starboard side is docked.

      • In the scene in Koenig's office, he is shown to be facing the sliding doors to Main Mission but in close ups, the doors are behind him.

      • Kano calculates that 3600 divided by the number of Alphans is 10, indicating there are 360 Alphans. But there were only 311 when Moon left Earth, of which several were killed. Even with a maximum population of 311, 3600 divided by the number of Alphans would be around 11.5 and with about a dozen deaths, 12.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Lee Russell: Nobody dies. Matter never dies, Helena. It changes its form. There are many forms of life in space. Many forms of death, too.

      • Koenig: More to the point, Kano. Have you computed how much older you'll be when we reach the last of those planets?
        Kano: Two thousand, five hundred and forty-three years old to be exact, sir. Just thought you might like to know.
        Koenig: Thank you, Kano.
