So I started watching the new Netflix sci fi that came out today and one of the main characters, who seems to be a high ranking official of some capacity pulling the strings, is referred to as Dubois and she even has a similar style to WT’s Sophie Dubois.
I dunno if Dubois is a reference to a scientist or whatnot that they’re both referencing or if it’s a nice little nod to NMS, or it’s just pure coincidence but it was enough for me to want to share that here
I’m only three episodes in, so far so good. Has commited some serious Sci fi faux pas in the first episode that has me raging internally, just silly people making silly decisions that people in their position would never make just to make it more relatable or dramatic but there’s more good than bad. Kinda reminds me of Stargate Universe meets Arrival/Contact.
I think what makes the connection stand out more is she’s like a combination of two WT characters. Sadly google has no images ofv the character I can find since the show is fresh out but here’s a description of her character
General Blair Dubois, General of United States Interstellar Command, in charge of United States’ response to the Artifact.
