Q: Why do some planets in Star Trek us a number designations while others have just a name?

sevensevensIn several Star Trek episodes, the ship visits planets with a Name + Number designation like Eminiar VII, but there is no shortage of planets, like Earth, Vulcan, and Romulus that don't have numbers after them. Is there an in-universe reason for some planets to have a name + a number, and some to...

Q: Does the Foundation show use elements from the prequel books?

ibidI've read the Foundation trilogy and its two sequels, but none of the prequels. The new tv show has a lot of elements which weren't in the original Foundation novellas. Are these things taken from the prequel books or are they newly invented for the show? If possible please try to minimize or hid...

Q: Scifi film involving humans thinking they live in a hollow planet

user73910This film or maybe a series of films, which I think was Russian, involves some humans who live on a planet. They believe that the planet that they live on is hollow and that they live on its inner shell. One of these humans explains to the main character that this is what they believe. The main c...

Q: Why did Pruitt believe that he had seen an angel?

AdamantWhen Monsignor Pruitt went to Jerusalem, he wandered off in the desert and encountered a sort of being or creature. It seems that a logical reaction for a highly religious Catholic versed in theology would be that they had been attacked by a demon and saved by the grace of God. A less religious ...

Q: Does the miniseries "Midnight Mass" have any relation with the book of the same name?

AdamantThe miniseries Midnight Mass shares its name with a book that has similar themes, published by a reasonably well-known author in 2007. In fact, the book already has a question on this site.

Q: Trying to recall old YA Sci-Fi series similar to Animorphs

David TullI recall a young adult book series similar to Animorphs where kids had special abilities to stop an alien invasion. The main difference is instead of turning into animals, they were more normal but enhanced skills. For example, one kid could speak any language including fax noise. Another kid cou...

Q: Hoops in The Book of All Skies

Daniel DarabosI'm confused about Greg Egan's "The Book of All Skies". I am pretty sure about the following: The worlds form a looping sequence. You can go from world 2 to world 1 or world 3. Just two neighbors for each world. This is supported by the cover art and by Sadema and Celema being the two ends of th...

Q: Are there villains that wear a helmet in Star Trek?

QueenSvetlanaProbably the most well known character in science fiction that wears a helmet would be Darth Vader (Correct me if I'm wrong. I haven't seen any Star Wars movie, but Vader is the one that had me thinking about this question). The only villain I can think of would be the Hirogen. Reasons why Trek ...

Q: What does Din mean that weapons are a part of his religion?

SkoobaIn The Mandalorian episode "The Child" (S01E02) our hero utters this rememberable quote: I'm a Mandalorian... weapons are part of my religion. But what does he mean exactly by this? First off, is it a true statement; or does he just not want to give up his rifle when dealing a group (the Jawas)...

Q: Why did the initial victim change so slowly?

AdamantAt the beginning of the series, we saw that during the day without any trouble. It was days, at the very least, if not weeks, before Pruitt's condition progressed to the point that he could no longer tolerate sunlight, and he did not. However, Riley exhibited extreme sensitivity to sunlight mere...
