Last year, Eureka, the SyFy Channel’s best show, seems to have gotten something wrong. They don’t usually do that, so it is worth mentioning. On the left is a screenshot of how they depicted the view of Saturn from the surface of Titan (as viewed by the holographic projection of Sheriff Carter).
Titan’s orbit is inclined to the plane of Saturn’s equator by less than 0.4 degrees. The rings would be viewed almost exactly edgewise, not from the angle shown here. The rings would seem like a thin, not very colourful, line. Saturn itself would still be pretty impressive.
The holographic sheriff brings up another question. What was emitting the hologram? I am not sure I buy the notion that an interactive hologram can be projected across a billion miles of space to the surface of a moon with a rather dense atmosphere and still retain any degree of coherence. Even Star Trek Voyager required the EMH to have a portable emitter with him at all times. They must have sent the emitter to Titan the same way the android deputy got there. If so, why would the hologram look like the Sheriff? A holographic version of Allison (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) was already ready for the mission.
