Question: Whenever anyone wants to contact someone else from another part of the ship, they hit their badge and say (for example), "Picard to Engineering." In no episode ever is there an instance where we hear somebody call someone else who is not involved in the current scene. We should assume, therefore, that when communication like this is initiated, it is only heard by the recipient of the page. So the question is, how can the ship's communication system know ahead of time who the person is paging? In other words, if Picard says, "Picard to Engineering," what keeps sickbay from hearing his call? There can't be a time-delay (i.e., the computer does not make the page until it hears the entire page, and then directs it only to the intended recipient) because in many episodes we hear the reply right away. Can anyone explain this? Are we simply "lucky," in that we only hear pages made by or sent to people in the scene we're watching?Matty Blast
Question: After that George (the Eminem wannabe) has been thrown out the window at the rap-club he and a friend of his walk past a parked car. Under the car you can see two feet sticking out. I don't think it's a crew member, I don't see any reason for a crew member to lie there. Is this any kind of joke or what? Why do someone lie there? Can someone please explain?
Question: I'm curious as to why Paéz is the narrator in the beginning and end of the film, when the movie focuses mainly on Canessa and Parrada as main characters. Almost all of the boys are alive today, and even if they weren't it is not Páez himself who is being interviewed but John Malcovich as Páez. So I'm still curious as to why they chose Páez instead of Parrado or Canessa, as they are both alive today.
Question: In this episode we see some of Spike's history - when he's human there's a bit where he walks down a street tearing up his poetry and bumps past Angel and Darla. We don't see their faces, but it's obviously them. I remember an episode of Angel when we see a flashback of Spike still human - can anyone remember the episode, and am I right in thinking that the bit we see is exactly the same moment in history, but we're focusing on Angel and Darla instead?Jon Sandys
