It was a mistake. Out of universe, just a production goof. In universe, Gary Mitchell made a human error. From Memory Alpha: The gravestone Mitchell creates for Kirk says "James R. Kirk". According to D.C. Fontana in the introduction for Star Trek: The Classic Episodes 1, when the mistake was discovered, Gene Roddenberry decided that if pressed for an ...

John Stamos' character was originally named Jesse Cochran; Stamos reportedly wanted his character to better reflect his Greek heritage so producers decided to change the character's surname to Katsopolis Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Full_House_characters In terms of an explanation: In the first season, Jesse's last name was Cochran, but ...

Ripley's shuttlecraft "Narcissus" floated through from the outer rim where LV-426 was, all the way into the core worlds. She's found, and taken to Gateway Station, a space station orbiting around/near Earth. Where she's interrogated and eventually finds a job. But in those 57 years, technology has improved. Faster than Light travel allows for what was a 1~2 ...

It can be argued that Joker is the main character since he narrates the film and it basically follows his experiences. During the time period depicted (1967-68) soldiers were commonly sent directly from boot camp to assignments within Vietnam. In the film, all of the characters who were training at the bootcamp get their MOS assignments (Joker gets Military ...

There are many possible reasons for this. Assuming automated control: A sequence of commercials has been cued up to play from a video server, and then one was removed from the schedule after the video server had started playing it (to allow frame-accurate play-out, the command to start a commercial is sent a little before it is needed to account for ...

I don’t think Joker completely buys into the military mind-set the way the others do, so it not very likely he will talk about boot-camp with other members of his graduating class when he runs into them. I don’t know what basic training is like now, but when I went through it (early 70’s) it was no high school that one might sit around reminiscing about for ...

Three options: The Franklin (out of universe, named after the director's father, Frank Lin) is the first Warp 4 ship. Essentially a precursor to the NX-class. Aesthetics aside, it does at least share the same general design and looks purposefully retro. It makes sense that during the war, it was refitted with at least newer weapons (still only spatial ...

Ignoring that these are plot holes born from decades of films, there is two possible explanations. Xavier isn't really there. Xavier, the most powerful telepath in the world, has been shown to (in comics and cartoons): Make people see things. He is simply projecting his image into people's minds, like he does his voice at various points. Use Astral ...

El Indio doesn't give it to him. It's already his. In earlier scenes, you can see Manco wearing it. I imagine it's some sort of brace for the wrist to help with recoil, and also that it's the sign of a professional Gunman. If you look here, (Edit: I pasted the exact time, but the link doesn't show the exact time. Look for 2:06:10) ...

It's been officially confirmed that the Franklin predates Archer's Enterprise, see this article: And if you think this is just our speculation, worry not: we got a note from Dylan Highsmith, one of the lead picture editors on STAR TREK BEYOND, about this very issue. If you want the official explanation on the Franklin and it’s warp factor: it was a ...

I'm not entirely sure what your question is here, but to confirm: The Clone Wars takes place between Epsiodes II and Episodes III. Lucas has confirmed this himself in interviews: Q: Why is it important for you to tell the story of The Clone Wars? A: The interesting thing about the Clone Wars is that in the films, in the normal course of the ...

The answer is, neither of those latter two things ever happened, thanks to Days of Future Past removing those two movies from the continuity. One of the major plot elements in Days of Future Past is that Wolverine changed the timeline, thus altering everything that happened from 1973 forward. The produces of the X-Men series have openly admitted this, ...

Unfortunately, there's not enough in-universe clues to sync the shows up, but most likely the answer is that Flash and Arrow are out of sync. There's a slim chance a future Flash episode will refer to this event, and we'll know for sure, but probably not. This isn't unusual, and in fact, the exact same thing happened last season. At some point, Flash ended ...

I don't want to give away the reasons why as it would include spoilers, but yes you should watch the movie before watching Season 6 as there is continuity from the movie into Season 6. Hopefully this is not too much of a spoiler but I'll block it out just in case you want to avoid it all together.

This was already answered on the Sci-Fi SE by Mike Edenfield. This is the start of his answer: Ideally, you should watch them in the order they aired. That is, if you want to get the most coherent story from both shows, you should watch Arrow up through the end of Season 2, then watch alternate episodes of The Flash Season 1 and Arrow Season 3. ...

F. Fred Palakon speculated about the ending: We can perhaps imagine the scene. The Yellowman, Raymond and Paul are pressing Dorothy on whether she talked to anyone. They threaten her directly, but also by threatening her husband in front of her. Raymond, say, shoots the TV for intimidation effect – I think the angle of the shot is from someone ...

There is no way to reconcile the Franklin's timeline with the timeline given in Enterprise. Based on Inaccurate numbering. Inaccurate speed. Inaccurate teleporter. The design (physical aesthetics) of the Franklin fits with the original Enterprise timeline, the major issue I noticed was that they stated it was the First warp 4 class ship. In Enterprise ...

In my opinion, The Franklin is most likely post-Enterprise NX-01. Say they were using a warp scale of warp^2 on "Enterprise" (and that the display on "First Flight" showing warp^3 was wishful thinking on the engineers' part). So, "old warp" 8 = 64 x light speed = "new warp" 4. As far as the transporters only being rated for cargo; maybe the Enterprise was ...

The significance of it, is that this is the piece of kit that differentiates him from the characters Blondie, and The Stranger, from the other two movies. Just as Colonel Douglas Mortimer wears his gun on his belly to differentiate his character from Angel Eyes (who does not). Because these movies were made on the cheap, with basically the same wardrobes, ...

If you believe that Clint Eastwood is playing the same character in all 3 movies (because , unbelievably, some people don't), I've seen comment that he wears it as a brace due to his hand injury from A Fistful Of Dollars which would make sense.
