Now there's a commercial for Ford or GM, whoever's brand it was......

Our trucks are so well built, they can drift in space for 400 years and start right up! We guarantee it or we'll give your descendents the money back!!

Come again?

Well technically if there are no fluids in the vehicle, it very well could run since it would be preserved by the vacuum of space.

Mine you its highly unlikely, it's not impossible.

There are many fluids in the engine AND battery.

Don't forget the manure in the truck bed.

what you are forgetting is that they might have had the truck in the hold long enough for anything frozen to have thawd out. That is assuming that when the fluids froze the ice crystals didn't break anything.

I love this episode, but there are sooooo many things wrong with that scene, and Harry Kim tops the list, Lol.

It would have been investigated straight away, no way something so important would be left to defrost in a cargo bay for hours.

Granted, yet the fuilds may have been drained. If there were any leaks you could kiss that fluid good bye.

THE 37'S

When a pickup truck from the 1930's inexplicably shows up in space, it's beamed aboard Voyager for closer inspection. Even more peculiar, the truck's radio is picking up an SOS distress call ¿ but from where? Kim traces the signal to a nearby star system and Janeway orders the crew to lay in a course to the signaling planet. An unusual amount of interference in the upper atmosphere prevents them from beaming down, so Janeway tells Paris to land the ship on the planet's surface.

The Away Team follows the SOS to the ####pit of an airplane that was built during the same era as the truck. Beyond the plane, the crew finds a chamber containing eight humans in cryo-stasis units. All are dressed in 1930's attire, and one unit holds famed aviator Amelia Earhart, who disappeared with her navigator Fred Noonan on July 2, 1937. The eight humans are revived from suspended animation.

Once awake, the humans demand to know where they are and how they got there. After Janeway explains that they were probably abducted by aliens 400 years earlier, a suspicious Noonan and some of the others take the crew hostage. Hoping to convince them of the truth, Janeway gets Earhart to venture outside the chamber to see Voyager, but as soon as they do, they come under fire by two snipers on a hill.

Janeway quells the attack and learns the snipers are two humans who have mistaken the crew for the Briori: an alien race that kidnapped more than 300 people from Earth in 1937 and brought them to the planet as slaves. After a successful slave revolt chased the Briori off, the humans created a colony. However, they believed that the eight "37's" in Earhart's group were dead, and they left them in their cryo-stasis units for centuries.

The colonists offer the 37's and Voyager's crew the opportunity to remain on the Earth-like planet, and Janeway allows each member of her flock to choose for his or herself. Although Neelix and Chakotay are sure they want to go with Janeway, she can't be so sure about the other crewmembers, who debate the merits of settling on the planet. Ultimately, Amelia Earhart and the other 37's decide to stay with their "descendants," but to Janeway's relief, the entire Voyager crew opts to leave with her.

So you really think that an old ass truck floating in absolute (or near) zero, or even thousands of degrees if it was anywhere near a star, for centuries starting right up is plausible?

Even if they put new fluids into the thing, I'm not even near buying it.

Like I said, modern vehicles in perfect conditions sometimes don't even want to operate and this antique is floating in temperatures that would destroy it for hundreds of years.


:laugh: ¿:laugh: ¿:laugh:

As i said its highly unlikely, yet not impossible.

Although i recently bought a 1952 1 1/2 to chevy heavy duty pick-up that hadn't been started in 10 yrs that started after cleaning the points and installing new spark plugs.

Yeah, but had it been floating in absolute zero and zero G for centuries?

:laugh: :laugh:

No but it was over grown with bushes, and weeds for who knows how long.

Your OK with Warp travel but finding a working old truck is impossible
