I know that the dvd has some deleted scene's but nothing like the directors cut of aliens. I wish I hadn't gotten the dvd version of this. The deleted scenes were pretty blah.
Ugh, it was visually appealing for that type of movie, but the story was weak. Not worth your time unless it shows up on Netflix.
This is pretty roundish, and I didn't include leap years, but they went just under 15 times the speed of light on average, with a peak speed of something much higher to account for acceleration and deceleration.
So my understanding of this is, when you hit C, time nearly stops for you relative to everything else. You wouldn't travel backwards in time though, in fact quite the opposite, you would travel to the future much faster than everything else.
So how do you hit a group of stars (a relatively tiny area), 35 light years away, which you can not know the precise motion of, and which will be millions (thousands, billions??) of years removed from where you saw it when you left?
Can some math geek please come explain this?
Also, why do they call 35 light years "so far away", when that is pretty much in our back yard in the grand scheme of things?
But I found David to be the most interesting of the group. Somehow Weyland was able to give him genuine curiousity and I would venture to say emotion. He has a real contempt for humanity. And I think this plot line is a metaphor for our relationship with the Engineers 2000+ years ago.
