Maybe it was from an earlier edition of the book. I know I didn't just invent that quote out of thin air.
No man, you're totally barking up the right tree, I know precisely what you're referring to, you're close, just slightly inaccurate. It's just the Mandela effect.
I absolutely believe mistakes can be made in any medium, I make them all the time and I have no difficulty admitting so. 0.74 light years per sidereal day is indeed a high cruising speed for Conestoga's, and the film indeed does show the Sulaco traveling much faster, precisely as I stated above. Can you explain where the conflict is here?
It's pretty obvious that would be a waste of time.
That feels pretty rude. It's okay to be incorrect about something, I'm incorrect about stuff all the time, it's human. I can demonstrate where the confusion is, but I've got a feeling this may have turned into a personal thing, and my mere suggestion has caused offense. My apologies, I respect the hell out you regardless, and I'd like you to know that. I assure you, any perceived rudeness or disrespect on my part is entirely unintentional.
