An NTSB investigator seeking the cause of an airline disaster meets a warrior woman from 1000 years in the future. She replaces the people from airplanes before they crash with corpses with the same features.
According to John Varley's original manuscript, Smith's role in history was critical to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), and eventually became the director. He died in old age by falling off his houseboat and drowning.
Louise, be subtle.
Coventry: Louise is as subtle as a lead pipe.
Before traveling back in time to 1963, Louise watches a film montage to familiarize herself with American culture of that year. However the film includes a brief shot of an American astronaut performing a space-walk, which first happened in 1965.
Two different endings of this film exist. The first simply shows the destruction of Futureworld after Bill and Louise step through the Gate. The second shows an actual trip through the Gate after Futureworld is destroyed.
