* ActivationSequence: There's a long sequence showing The Machine being activated for Ellie's flight. The rings are slowly spun up, the control center keeps checking for updates as to their status, and Ellie tries to inform them how the Machine is behaving with each new phase. They almost call it off, but finally go through with it when they barely make out Ellie's "OK to go" through the storm of interference the things is producing.

''Contact'' is a 1997movie directed by Creator/RobertZemeckis and [[TheFilmOfTheBook based on]] astronomer Creator/CarlSagan's [[Literature/{{Contact}} novel of the same name]], although in an odd case, Sagan wrote it first for the screen, then turned it into a book after it ended up in DevelopmentHell. Unlike most Hollywood science fiction adaptations, this attempted to stay true to the original and get the science right. Sagan died some months before the film was finished, so we don't know what he would have thought of it.
