At the end of the film, Kalgan, thought to be dead, suddenly opens his eyes, leaving the viewer with the horrifying implication that the filmmakers were actually planning a sequel to this piece of crap.
Alternately, maybe while it can travel faster than the speed of light, it can't travel infinitely fast to reach where ever it's going.
They talk about calling for help, so the ships must be able to catch them up quickly. Also the scene implies that it has been like that since they set off... I shouldn't be appling logic to this film should I?
Adding to the confusion, Ryder apparently wasn't native to the ship...so where did he come from? And where was he picking up the professor from?
And Kalgan's big plan involves taking it to a planet largely occupied by Space Pirates. So if there are already inhabited worlds, then why hasn't the ship landed yet?
They don't want to share?
Kalgan made a deal with the pirates. What did he offer them? What were the terms? It seemed like he wanted to ally with the pirates to use the southern sun to take over some inhabited world, but when they encountered the pirates later, the pirates just attacked the ship that Kalgan was supposed to take over.
Ryder: I just wish he [Commander Jansen] could control you as well as he controls this ship.
Crow: So... have a mutiny on her?
When Commander Jansen learns that MacPhearson is with Kalgan, he says that MacPhearson knows all their counter-measures. So why did Kalgan attempt to torture Lea into revealing Jansen's counter-measures?
