Semi-automatic pistols were invented in 1892, becoming commercially successful in 1894, and used almost immediately by some armies around the world. The design of the Colt M1911 is the basis of many "modern" semi-automatic pistols, was in use by US armed forces as of 1911, years before WWI, making the statement about modern weapons not so modern.

Connor Mason: Our earliest prototype. She isn't fancy, but she works, usually. Now, we kept her operational in case the crew of the mothership ever needed a rescue. We call this one the Lifeboat.

The Hindenburg looks Realistic
28 February 2017 | by filmblue-11636See all my reviews

The first episode which I watched of season one is creative in realism. The characters of Rufus, Wyatt, and Lucy's character really fit well in how a situation of stopping a former NSA agent who stole a mother-ship, while the three are in a lifeboat.

Like the special effects of the time-machines while they look real on a less reflective screen and seeing the Hindenburg like if I was watching a balloon festival in Texas up close. Realistic. I could imagine if Malcolm, Matt, Goran, and Abigail's eye's start to bulge out of their sockets seeing something with some pop-out quality.
