* If the other colony that created the "oasis" has no seeds to plant in the soil they've exposed, what have its people been been living on? If they have no seeds, then they can't have been gardening underground like Colony 7, and if the world's been frozen since the hero was a child then they'd have needed a preposterous amount of canned goods to survive without ''some'' sort of indoor farming.

** See [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_prison_experiment Stanford prison experiment]] for how people can really get into something even if they are fully aware it's all a simulation. That thing was stopped after six days. The colonists were in the colony for far longer in a much more immersive environment.

**** None of the colonists were aware that they would be given the chance to trade, and the second season's traders didn't make a return visit.

* So is Tick also a survivor like the starting cast, who chose or was instructed not to interact for a set period, or is he is a part of the experiment, as much as the marauders and other things?

* The psychologists all keep saying that the simulation becomes real to the Colonists, but is that really possible? I mean, there are people following them with big cameras and everything, probably wearing t-shirts and jeans, chowing down on good food while the Colonists have to eat nasty sausages. I feel like that would quickly break the WillingSuspensionofDisbelief. I get that the show just wants US to believe it, but this troper just doesn't think the Colonists can really get immersed.
