Frank, Lara and Peter all get pass-phrases to use for the voice identification of the Millennium Group network. All are references to classic science fiction movies: Frank's phrase "Soylent Green is people" is taken from 'Stanley R. Greens' Soylent Green
(1973), while Lara's pass-phrase "Open the pod bay doors please, Hal" refers to Stanley Kubrick 2001: A Space Odyssey
(1968). Peter's is "My God! It's full of stars!!" from 'Peter Hyams' "2010: The Year We Make Contact" (1984). See more
There's a system in place. One that constantly evaluates our youths and our lives with no application of relativity. A 4.0 will succeed, a 2.5 will not. Below 750 on the SATs, and certain doors close. Now quality of person, sense of humor, heart; these are not on any applications. It's all about your numbers... Numbers which tell a young person at 18 they're through, and unless there is some miracle of timing or events, and greatness is stressed upon you, your life is over.
