It seems that in future (2190s) scientific space travels are open for each and every dumb asshole on Earth, and are limited only by the spaceship's capacity. The actions done by the crew on the alien planet are unfathomable by me. Each action were a big mistake so they had what they saw, serves them right.
Here it seems that the helm is much blurred either by his breath or by something else, but is it possible to have such suit for a mission like that? Blocking your vision in an alien and maybe hostile environment is not the first thing you want to get, right? -
Their costumes for exploring are too weak, helmets crack like a light-bulb - totally unreal for a serious expedition and for future technologies.
By the way, remember how doctor Shaw zipped her tight costume after talking to the sponsor of the flight? She showed some pain as if getting her chest hair zipped! :D
An axe?! Why would you need an axe on the spaceship? To cut lumber? Besides it is dull, you can see it if you pause -
