10903Re: adaptable Probe Control ???
- Mar 16, 2014You're right...Search did what most science fiction shows do: the technology varies in ability, depending on what the script needs. I can't think of a single show where you ask the question, "Hey, why didn't they just do..." Even in movies - Thor 2. Where was SHIELD?!
Back to SEARCH...if Probe Control can spot that there's someone else in the room with the Probe ("off-presence") via additional medical readings, why don't they do this all the time? There's no reason for any Probe exploring a supposedly empty building to ever be surprised that someone else is in there sneaking around. And they should improve the technology to sense where the off-presence reading is.
"Lockwood, we're picking up readings from a person about 20 yards Northwest of you."
"Can you see them?"
"OK, be careful..."
