The Lonely - S1-E7

Plot hole: In the beginning, we see the rocket that came to bring the main character supplies carried 3 men and the crate containing the robot woman, meaning it can hold at least 4 people and perhaps more. However, at the end of the episode, the main character is told that the rocket only has enough room for him and the pilot, so he must leave his robot wife behind. Why wouldn't they return in the same rocket from before, and if this is a smaller rocket, why would they have chosen to bring this one when the main character possibly could have had a lot of stuff he wanted to bring home. We see he could have car parts shipped to him and was able to build a car, so these rockets must be able to carry a significant amount of weight. It's almost as if the pilot wanted him to have an ultimatum.

Suggested correction: It is stated by the captain that they have to pick other convicts which means there will be more then four people present. Plus, there are captain and two crew members in the first place.

Trivia
