Lost in Space (2018)

1 continuity mistake in season 3

(8 votes)

Genres: Sci-fi

Stuck - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: At about the 30-minute mark, right after Judy and Maureen have a heart about being the perfect daughter, Maureen says "you have to get out of here." When she says this, she slips out of her harness and her shoulders come loose, which is the only reason the two can't leave the ship easily. The next shot we see of Maureen she is back in her harness. (00:30:10)

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: One of the episodes shows John at a Marine base camp. It shows him wearing Army fatigues, and in Episode 7, Maureen jokingly says "weren't you a Navy SEAL?" right after he fails to throw this hook to get to safety from a tar pit. So what is he? A soldier? Marine? SEAL? Can't be all three.

Suggested correction: Navy SEALs will wear camo to disguise themselves.

SEALs are Navy. So John is a Navy guy in a Marine Corps base using Army fatigues? A bit messy I guess.

Military folks end up on various bases all the time. I was in the Navy for 20 years and found myself, at different times, operationally committed to being on Army, Air Force, Coast Guard bases, and plenty of other bases with Marine detachments, to say nothing of bases of foreign militaries overseas. If you happen to be on a joint operations base, like European Command, you'll see everything walking around. Not as odd as it sounds.

Infestation - S1-E3

Question: If the universe is around 13 billion years old, can the distances between galaxies be counted as a different units? Galactic distance is huge; could the distances be in trillion light years apart? I believe the age of the universe is different than galactic distances?

Answer: Yes to all questions. The best theoretical estimate is that the universe is about 7 trillion light years across. That is about 250 times larger than the currently observable universe. So, yes, using trillions of light years as a unit of measure is appropriate. And, yes, the age of the universe is a measure of time, and the space between galaxies is a measure of distance.
