So the world is dying of a disease picked up by birds in the arctic, and the plan of the government is to send two scientists to find the "primordial strain" of the disease, by taking snow samples from where the birds eat - eat snow, I guess. I don't know about you, but I'm REALLY tired of this fake sci-fi theory that in order to cure a disease someone needs to find samples of the original strain or the first infected patient. It's total crap scientifically. If a virus mutated, you need to cure THAT version, not it's ancestor. I think I've seen it in about a dozen movies and TV shows now. It's clearly a case of writers: 1. Not knowing a thing about science. 2. Copying each other's ideas. Hate to break it to you, but you don't cure a cold by getting blood sample of the first man with a cold. I remember thinking how BS this idea was in a zombie movie I saw 10 years ago... they had to find the first zombie to make a cure...? Everyone just keeps borrowing this idea. I need to find the first movie that came up with this idea and kill it so I can cure the other movies it spawned. How many "unnamed refueling stations" does the US Navy have exactly? Shouldn't they all be manned? What's the purpose of unmanned fuel? The dropping of the one female character making a comment about missing her girlfriend was about as subtle as a bag of hammers, and served NO PURPOSE except to say "Look! We have a lesbian character! We're progressive writers!" Does no one on that ship know how to properly change a high voltage fuse? Oh, and one of the cast is a traitor with a secret agenda that we drop in the last 10 seconds of the pilot. That was predictable. On the plus side - They have the man named Jayne.
