Question: What exactly were Atlee's intentions with Ilsa? Why did he originally send her to infiltrate the Syndicate and why did he send her back later in the movie? If all he wants to do is keep the Syndicate hidden, what does he hope to accomplish with Ilsa as his woman on the inside? Does he actually know what is on the flashdrive she brings him, or does he also think it's a ledger? It makes sense for him to want to delete it in both cases, so I'm confused trying to figure out which it is. Either way, does Atlee send her back to get killed? Hunt later says he wanted to "frame" her, but I don't understand how.
Question: When Calhoun punches Ralph as he's watching the Random Roster Race, is she aware that he is Felix's friend that they were trying to find? If so, does Calhoun have a liking for Ralph even though she was angry with him for bringing a cy-bug into "Sugar Rush"? Would she be worried about him and try to rescue him if he was in danger of getting killed by a cy-bug?
Question: If the core stopped spinning, where would all the kinetic energy that keeps it spinning go? Energy cannot be created or destroyed.
Question: Is it really possible to keep a person warm by putting him inside the body of a large animal? That's what Han does with Luke in the movie.
Question: If Remus is a tidally locked planet, and the bright side is too hot to live on, wouldn't the dark side be too cold to live on?
Question: Mark finds pathfinder, and takes it back to the hab, and recharges it. Wouldn't he have to repair it first? The rover is very old, and hasn't been used in decades.
Question: When Charlie looks inside the toilet to see the mess Max made since he missed, why don't we see what's inside?
Question: Towards the end of the movie, after he kidnaps her a second time, Christine originally has on her outfit from Don Juan but then has time to change into the white wedding dress. Why did she change? Did he make her change into that? I understand from like a movie point of view that it's a different song/act.
Question: The first Robocop 2 attempt managed to commit suicide by shooting himself at where I assume the brain was located. Wasn't this a major oversight in design that the cyborg wasn't made out of hard/thick enough metal so it wouldn't be possible to kill it with a single shot?
Question: The two failed RoboCop 2s wound and perhaps killed a person. Weren't they programmed with the prime directives?
