Quote from: SiL on May 30, 2023, 04:32:35 AMThere's nothing in the movie to suggest the SO is coded into every ship and plenty to suggest the Nostromo was deliberately set up.
QuoteWhat is SOP is "detect signal, wake up crew". Reroute the ship to intercept the signal and trigger the automation; place science officer on board with special order to retrieve specimen.
QuoteFor SO-937 to be on every ship, every single science officer employed by WY would need to be either an Android (clearly not the case) or in on the conspiracy. It would be ridiculous to leave it lying there if there was a chance someone saw it and raised the alarm to the rest of the crew.
Quote from: Ridley ScottTo dissuade the crews from rebelling and to protect their own interests, these companies might place spies on board, or at least would make the crews believe in the presence of such spies. Gradually a legend would evolve that these people, whose identities remain unknown, are in fact robots. Furthermore, nobody would have any proof. This would reinforce legends already current among astronauts
Quote from: Valaquen on May 30, 2023, 09:07:51 AMI don't think that's standard operating procedure, given Parker has to have his arm bent with withheld shares to even go.
QuoteYou definitely get the feeling that this situation is unusual. Lambert seems surprised when scanning the system, Parker reacts like "what?" when told they are off-course. It just doesn't seem ordinary for them.
