How many people are on the boat?
« on: February 20, 2008, 07:18:35 PM »
I'm not sure if it has been asked before, but do we know how many people are on the boat?
And what exactly is their part? Who are they? Who is Minkowski, and who is the girl who answered Faraday?
Do they know that the fantastic four are held prisoners?

2 confirmed by the sat phone.  One sounded like another science type person.  Seems like it'd take more for a "freighter" in the S. Pacific.  Plus there's Ben's man, unless it's one of those 2.

I say at least 10, need a crew to pilot the boat, service the 2 helicopters, work a "missile launcher", not to mention engine crew and deck hands.

Tho on Find 815, they only showed three people on the boat - our protagonist, the captain, and the Abaddon-like shadowy guy calling the shots. So, don't expect the guy oiling the driveshaft to be used as shock troops when Sayid goes badass.

If there were a platoon, would it be like Charlie Sheen's in Platoon, Casper van Diem in Starship Troopers, or Sigourney Weaver's in Aliens?

Hudson: Hey Vasquez, have you ever been mistaken for a man?
Vasquez: No. Have you?

Thats a good question, id say at least Minkowski, whoever dan was talking to (who fired the payload), bens dude on the boat, and of course michael and walt. i like the thoery of a very minimal hit squad type of thing. im starting to get character overload.

Regina. The one who fired the payload. And who surely stuffed Minkowski into a bulkhead.
