Take a read through some of our burning questions on FOX’S recently launched science fiction series, Terra Nova, below!
- Why can the colony contact 2149 to send messages, but not send actual people through the portal?
- Who are the Sixers? Particularly, how does their philosophy differ from Taylor’s and what proof do they have to support that the project is not what it seems? What is their perspective on the true nature of Terra Nova?
- Who Mira taking commands is from and what circumstances led to her being separated from her daughter in the first place? What plan do they have to take Taylor down and how would they lead differently?
- What is the significance of the symbols on the rocks by the falls? Why does Taylor want this secret and could this speak to Mira’s later comments about the false pretense of Terra Nova?
- Why is Taylor being granted full control, which could be considered the same as a utopian dictator? For example, he dictates how dating procedures are to occur and has not established a judicial system.
- Can we consider that Malcolm has come to terms with Elizabeth’s marriage with Jim or do you think he will still try to win her? How might he try to do this?
- How does Sky know the insider who is the spy on Terra Nova and what do you think the repercussions will be when Josh is discovered?
- Do you think Jim and his family may ultimately oppose Taylor, given how his loyalty in the recent episode, Runaway changed to a shade of grey? For example, how he withheld information about Mira’s motives of wanting to overthrow Taylor so that she could see her daughter again.
- What is in the container, which Mira desperately wanted? Why was it left behind when she relocated and what prompted her to retrieve it at the current point in time?
- Where is the portal located? This is important, given that Mira claims that she has access to 2149, but so does Taylor? How does Mira have access?

Fischer recently discussed her experience in undergoing her first pregnancy with People , indicating how in some respects in was quite a breeze.

This post will be updated weekly to provide promotional information on the next episode. Also, stay tuned for additional posts regarding news and media coverage for the show’s current season.
TERRA NOVA, the new family adventure drama series executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga and David Fury, will preview in May 2011 on FOX prior to its series premiere in the fall.
Jason O’Mara (“Life on Mars”) has been cast in the lead role of JIM SHANNON, the patriarch of the show’s central family. As previously announced, Emmy Award winner Alex Graves (FRINGE) will direct the pilot, and Emmy Award-winning executive producer and director Jon Cassar (“24”) has joined the series as an executive producer and series director.
“TERRA NOVA will be one of the most visually stimulating and dramatically grand series to air on network television,” said Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “It deserves to have an equally unique launch to distinguish that the show is unlike any other, and the spring promotional platform will give us the perfect opportunity to introduce this bold show to audiences.”
TERRA NOVA, an epic family adventure 85 million years in the making, follows an ordinary family embarking on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a massive experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149 the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped, overcrowded and overpolluted. Knowing there is no way to reverse the damage to the planet, a coalition of scientists has managed to open up a fracture in the space-time continuum, creating a portal to prehistoric Earth. This doorway leads to an amazing world, one that allows for a last-ditch effort to save the human race…possibly changing the future by correcting the mistakes of the past.
The series centers on the Shannon family as they join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to TERRA NOVA, the first colony of humans in this second chance for civilization. JIM SHANNON (O’Mara), a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family – wife ELISABETH and children JOSH and MADDY – through this new land of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. In addition to blue skies, rolling rivers and lush vegetation, TERRA NOVA offers new opportunities and fresh beginnings to its recent arrivals, but the Shannons have brought with them a familial secret that may threaten their citizenship in this utopia. These adventurers soon discover that this healthy, vibrant world is not as idyllic as it initially appears. The areas surrounding TERRA NOVA are filled with dangerous dinosaurs and other prehistoric threats, as well as external forces that may be intent on destroying this new world before it begins.
TERRA NOVA is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, DreamWorks Television, Kapital Entertainment and Chernin Entertainment. Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga, David Fury, Jon Cassar, Aaron Kaplan, Katherine Pope, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Craig Silverstein and Kelly Marcel serve as executive producers.
