  • Trivia

    • It's never made clear why the Elba II colony is so heavily protected. A planetary force field capable of withstanding a starship's weaponry seems like overkill, considering there are only 15 patients and none of them seem particularly valuable or dangerous except for Garth (a new arrival). Given the force field and the poisonous atmosphere, the asylum has roughly the 20th century equivalent of a mine field and walls to rival Fort Knox: no 20th century asylum has that kind of protection so why does the Elba colony require it?
