A spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet and transporting thousands of people has a malfunction in its sleep chambers. As a result, two passengers are awakened 90 years early.
When Pratt asks the holographic room's computer where the ship is in space, it replies that Homestead II is in the Bhakti system. Bhakti (Hinduism) means devotion to God.
Good morning, James. How are you feeling?
Jim Preston: Wait. What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's perfectly normal to feel confused. You just spent 120 years in suspended animation.
Jim Preston: What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's okay, James.
Jim Preston: It's Jim.
Wake-up Hologram: Jim.
From all appearances, the ship generates gravity by rotating. If this is true, then the stars are constantly shown as rotating wrong. For example, at the 1h24m mark, the characters are shown in a room with a window looking out on space. With gravity oriented downward in the shot, then the outermost part of the ship should be at their feet, and the stars should sweep past the window left-to-right or right-to-left (depending on if the window is forward- or rear-facing). But they move past in some other, weird pattern, as if the center of rotation were off to the left of the window (whereas the center of rotation should be above their heads). But since we don't know how the artificial gravity is generated, we can't make any conclusions about how the stars should appear to move, or if we're even seeing the real stars, versus another view-screen image or hologram.
