Did You Know?


After the death of Lorelai, Dr. Bryce is seen examining the body wearing latex (or similar) medical gloves. In fact, medical gloves were only invented in 1964, a year after the supposed launch of the USS Ascension. Even if gloves were available, it did not become common practice for medical professionals to wear gloves during routine examinations until the 1990s, triggered by a fear of pathogens being passed on through minor contact with blood or other bodily fluids. As such, it is highly unlikely that a doctor from a culture rooted in the early-60s would use gloves. Indeed, the premise of the show is that no murder had occurred in the first 51 years of the mission, so a doctor would have no reason to think to use gloves to examine the dead victim of crime.
