  • Game Preserve Planet
rdfs:comment
  • The length of days as well as years on the planet is logically not the same as on Earth: both seem to be much longer. After initially waking up on the planet, Royce notes to Isabelle that "the sun hasn't moved at all since we got here" several hours before and Isabelle uses a twig and leaf homemade compass in a puddle of liquid which only spins, proving there is no magnetic north on the planet. The nights on the planet are shorter than the days. The seasons of the planet are also long. Noland says that he has been on the planet for 10 "seasons", but he has been there since the Vietnam War 30 years ago. Therefore, roughly speaking a given "season" on the Game Preserve Planet may be three times as long as an Earth year.

  • The length of days as well as years on the planet is logically not the same as on Earth: both seem to be much longer. After initially waking up on the planet, Royce notes to Isabelle that "the sun hasn't moved at all since we got here" several hours before and Isabelle uses a twig and leaf homemade compass in a puddle of liquid which only spins, proving there is no magnetic north on the planet. The nights on the planet are shorter than the days. The seasons of the planet are also long. Noland says that he has been on the planet for 10 "seasons", but he has been there since the Vietnam War 30 years ago. Therefore, roughly speaking a given "season" on the Game Preserve Planet may be three times as long as an Earth year. The planet actually may be a moon not a planet. In the scene where Royce and company discovers they are not on Earth, a Jupiter-like gas giant and an Earth-like moon are seen very close to the Game preserve. This may mean the Game Preserve Planet is actually one of two or more moons orbiting a Jovian gas giant. The moon orbit around the gas giant explains the long day-short night cycles. Although not seen in any media, the Game Preserve Planet oceans may have strong tidal forces from the gravitational pull from the gas giant and other celestial bodies. The magnetic field must be strong enough to fend off radiation from the Jovian planet.
