Independence Day: Resurgence

Question: Dikembe Umbutu stated that his country had been fighting the aliens from the only City Destroyer that landed for nearly 10 years. However, it's stated later in the movie that the surviving aliens were in a catatonic state after the destruction of the mothership, and woke up when their queen arrived 20 years later. So were some aliens not psychically affected by the loss of the mothership's queen and continued a ground war?

Chosen answer: General Adams was only referring to the aliens in the Area 51 prison as having been in a catatonic state for 20 years, not all of the aliens that survived after the mothership was destroyed. Presumably, the aliens in the prison came from the City Destroyer that crashed near Area 51, but the aliens Dikembe fought came from the landed Destroyer, and with their ship intact (and given the fact that it was trying to drill to the core) those aliens retained more of a will to fight.

Question: How did Patricia hit The Harvester Queen's shield?

Chosen answer: It appears she hit it enough times that it got too damaged to stay on.


Question: After 20 years of immense technological evolution, why is everybody still using cars that need gasoline?


Chosen answer: It's technology that works, so why not use it? People still drive 20 year olds cars now, some because they like them, some because they can't afford a replacement. It wouldn't be surprising for the new technology to be very expensive or patented by the military and therefore not available for everyone.

When the new president talks to the world on shortwave radio, some kids are adjusting a TV antenna in one shot. Shortwave radios wouldn't work with TV antennas, they use two significantly different frequencies. Shortwave is a much longer wavelength and would require larger antennas to work.
