Ok, I was thinking the previous episode was the best but not, this is the best episode of the series until now.

So they made clones to shift their bodies into and then sent them into space? That's hilarious.

Also this episode was slightly less boring than all the other ones, mainly due to the 2 twists being dumb enough to jolt me from almost falling asleep

Wait. If Poli-nee is from Earth and the rest is from Astra, how it's possible that they used exactly the same space ships and the technology was exactly the same (Zack was able to fix many things and mod the device for food recognition)? Im pretty sure that they were familiar with this space ship type when they discovered it.
They were moved into parallel universe (with that orb) or something?

Is Aries a clone of that girl Charce mentioned back then? After its big twist-revelation, it seems feasible.

I'm glad that i didnt drop out, i thought that my patience was still up to see what it could go, therefore, it wouldn't hurt me to finish: i was right after all. This episode gaged me because i didnt never expect that they werent from Earth despite it seems a little suspicious that they didnt mentioned the exact word(I just remember of "home") likeeeee wtf, we had seen quite of this kind of line on scifi movies or whatever, there's a fixation on it. Y'all felt that, right?

Forward to see what will happen to Polina bc girl you aint losing your mind, i thought they would all go to Earth too

This episode was fantastic, everything is coming together. Cannot wait to see what is going to happen next, especially with the girl they rescued. I was always suspicious of Charce and Funi/Quitterie but I totally didn't see the 'everyone is a clone' thing coming.

Still wish we got a bit more focus on actual space exploration and a bit less on mystery elements/dramatic scenes, to balance things out (even though I understand it's not the main focus of this show after all).

This was an explosive episode, and it passed by quite quickly. We now have the clone thing confirmed for everyone, and the marriage has been announced... ALSO HAVE THEY REALLY NEVER SAID EARTH ONCE IN THIS? God damn it, I SURE GOT PLAYED HARD. I wonder if the next planet they're landing on is old Earth, that would be great.

What I personally don't understand is, if they already decide to choose this method, why not at least give the kids insufficient or sabotaged gear? Like having their helmets malfunction.



Giving them sabotaged gear likely seemed unnecessary or risky. If someone like Zack decided to check their suit before setting off they would of found something was up. If the suits malfunctioned on the ship they might even have to call the trip off. I also don't know where those suits came from and who gave them to them. They aren't all the same suits or even made from the same manufacturer.

On the other hand, what would be the point? Even if they were wearing their crust suits with their helps on they would run out of air before long. Without a ship there would be no way for them to land on a planet and get supplies. They would just die out in orbit of a dead world.

Now there was a ship, but they had no way of knowing it would be there.

I've seen multiple people ask that and I'm not sure why. We've had no real evidence that the space ship Astra has ever been to planet Astra. The kids just found it after the wormhole spit them out and never saw it before.

Well, of course they got into this ship after "teleportation". Maybe my initial question was a little confusing. But they were familiar with this ship type and technology, so it would be a little strange if they were really moved into parallel universe with same technology but different "Earth". Not mentioning that this spaceship theoretically was rather old considering the fact how deep into space it was left. So maybe Astra is a rebranded Earth and they weren't moved into parallel universe but they time-traveled.

The point would be to account for every ever so seemingly miniscule and small risk that would ruin their plan and in the worst case ruin their lives forever.

You know, something every person ought to consider when planning out a scenario that your life depends on. Just saying.

Okay, but what are the odds of the kids finding a space ship in orbit of some planet they've never heard of? They might not of even though of it. Given how much trouble it is to travel, I assume it's beyond the range of explored space. Also that section of space may or may not be off limits.

You aren't accounting for the specific scenario that there is a ship waiting for them.
The idea is to account for ANYTHING unexpected that might possibly pop up to ruin your plan. Any semi-meticulous person would account for things that are easily accounted for. And sabotaging gear is a matter of a minute or two.
So the actual question is: Why wouldn't someone do that for such an important mission when it's so easy to do?
Just handing each of them out a fake suit that looks and feels like the original would have been more than enough.

Hum I'm surprise because Polina came from earth not because they aren't. They never speak about earth before themselves, I never thought that they leave on it.

Pretty awesome episode, voice actors/actresses did a great job!

Well, the characters certainly learned a lot in this episode. It was quite a shocker, but they're not going to let their being clones stop them.

But, they're not from Earth? The planet they're from is called Astra, like the ship, and that Polina is not from that planet at all, it seems.

Astra Lost in Space delivers yet another fantastic episode! Our merry band of space adventurers face a terrible revelation that forces them to confront everything they believe in: they are all clones. I have to say, this show just keeps getting more serious and intense. Not only do the original main characters have to redefine their identities and personalities, Paulina faces the very real possibility of never seeing her home again. Astra Lost in Space is pretty good at leaving viewers wanting for more. This is one of the best shows in this season and I can't wait to see what happens next.

THE FUCK so many revelations. Maybe an Polina is from the alternate timeline/earth?

The clone thing wasn't as big a shock as I thought...they were setting that one up for awhile.

It's the Earth/Astra thing that now has my attention.


Is it a time issue, or a multi dimension issue?

That threw me for a loop!!! I was under the assumption that they came from the earth but it turns out that they hadn't. I can't wait to finally see what Polina's role in this thing is...Excellent episode.

Aaah I knew these two sisters were too much alike, and the parents worries were weird too.
But the hell, that climax! Damn I wasn't going to watch another episode but damn I need to know...

So they are all... clones? O...kay.
Lol that gathering sure was filled with heartless parents.
They are gonna go get those parents arrested and get citizenship in their place lmao nice.
Wow Zack and Quittorie really chose the timing to marry. Arie's "how lucky! how lucky! how lucky!" tho lol
Aries vs Zack lmao.
Wait. Even their planet's name is Astra? Thought that was redundant with how their ship name is Astra too if anything.

This was a great episode, obviously, and that sudden twist at the end really cemented that (assuming it leads somewhere interesting), but I want to talk about how much I like that the revelation was addressed by panning off into their originals talking about what happened.

It would've been really easy to blanket paint the "parents" as mysterious villains as the children discussed their origins amongst themselves, but instead the exposition gives us insight into who the originals are, why they decided to clone themselves, and why they needed to find a way to eliminate their clones. The conclusion is that the originals are still antagonists -- and cloning is illegal for a reason -- but their motives can be empathized with and their actions reasonable. Especially since the law is enforced, presumably, after the clones have already been made.

The goofy shtick with Zack and Quitterie's wedding was amusing but dragged down the weight of the revelation, and generally I find the gags contrast too sharply with the drama and are kind of cringy.

Glad after that shocking truth revelation, they got happily refreshing and funny/adorable moment of Zack and Quiterrie and co's....

Just after that .... that twist at the end about their planet...
