[[spoiler:Snow turns out to be a "visitor" (a creation of the GeniusLoci planet Solaris) who killed the human version of itself shortly after manifesting on the ship. Subverted in that while the imitation Snow knows what he is, he is not actively working on Solaris's behalf and is confused and scared as everyone else, which is what led to the murder of his human self.
