The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I had always believed that the seats of the pilot and co-pilot were positioned close enough to where Ferro could see Spunkmeyer's hand on his controls/joysticks from the corner of her left eye. However, a friend recently brought up that it doesn't make sense because having the co-pilot's hand in the peripheral vision of the pilot could be considered a distraction (i.e., Spunkmeyer starts twitching or something). He claimed the co-pilot's seat is further back, and what I'm seeing is an optical illusion of some sort. I agree with his statement that it would make sense for Spunkmeyer to be pushed back to avoid becoming a distraction, but I still think he's a lot closer, and Ferro can see his hand within her peripheral vision.

Maybe he should wear black or gray gloves to blend in. :P
