I thought it was absolutely hilarious! Esp the ending where the paramedics declared her dead, just left her laying around all, well, dead on the ground, only for her to make a dramatic back-from-the-dead!

Genius!

Nice explanation. But why isn't there one on the "lower" side of the ship then?

Oh, and now that you're being clever, can you please explain the gravity part? That's totally inexplicable to me (I don't buy that it's the pull of the planet, considering the distance and the point of "being in orbit"), but I haven't seen it listed as a "goof" on IMDB, so I guess there's some slightly reasonable explanation.

Personally to me in the age of sensors and stuff that it would be in why put all the command and control functions of the ship in a nice big target, and better have a window in to make it weak? I'd put it right in the middle of it, where it would be safer.

Because it "lands" on that end ? Maybe it approaches everything from that angle like old bucaneer ships approach everything from the side, as opposed to head on to maximize the number of guns facing a ship? The surface area seems like it would be the greatest from that angle ...

edit: eh fuck it, I'm not above dorking it up by doing some research to make a point.

Well back in the mid 90's (when I still played computer games), I used to play the star wars flight simulation series (x-wing, tie fighter, etc ... I was into playing airplane games). I know that there were "interdictor" star destroyers which had gravity wells to prevent other ships from escaping. Maybe it has something to do with that?

All modern ships have their primary command and control centers in the center of the ships, but at the same time they all have bridges at the top of the ship.

They also have radar and other "sensors". Perhaps the same common sense principle applies now as in the hypothetical abstract star wars future for some convoluted reason?

Good if somewhat far-fetched explanations. The site you cited offered the explanation
quote:
The whole module is mounted on a support tower at the highest point of the ship's dorsal superstructure so that the scanners, communications gear and bridge benefit from optimal unobstructed line-of-sight to as much of the sky as possible.

but it leaves the question as to why the tower would not be extending from the nose of the ship then, but I guess I'm as close to rationality as I can get...

Jesus titty-fucking christ. I just found the exact replica of my second to last ex-girlfriend on hotornot.com:

If that was bronwyn / melbourne / and - oh by the way, internet - "i have a beatiful 6 month old daughter named juliet" I'd be making a quick dash for New Zealand right about now...
