Is it me, or do Elaysians and Efrosians look very similar? zsingaya 18:17, 22 Jul 2005 (UTC)Talk

I guess it's you, Melora lacks hair on her eyebrows where all male Efrosians seen do have such hair, and a lot of it at that. -- Bakabaka 17:36, 20 December 2006 (UTC)


Just something curious I noticed on this page, what follows seems like two contradictory quotations:
"on their homeworld they are virtually able to "fly".
and
"When (the process explained in the article is) finished, the person can move naturally in 1 G as they originally could in their low gravity environment."
Clearly, after her procedure, she wont be able to move as naturally in 1G, as she could in her original low gravity environment... unless she'll be "virtually able to fly" in 1G.Hossrex 07:01, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Elaysian planet's atmosphere Edit

I thought it was already well-established in science that planets with weak gravity could not hold an atmosphere. Starting at about the timestamp 00:21:00, Melora adjusts her gravity generator to give out the same gravity of her homeworld. Needless to say, the gravity appears to be less than even our own Moon. If the Elaysian planet has less gravity than our Moon, then how does it hold an atmosphere anyhow? --K. Shinohara 21:59, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Pluto has an atmosphere. Titan and Venus have atmosopheres thicker than Earth's yet are of lower mass (and therefore gravity). There is far more to atmospheric formation than mere gravity level. --OuroborosCobra talk 22:02, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
I know Venus is heavier than our Moon and maybe Titan is too. IIRC, I think Pluto is heavier than our Moon as well, is it? I thought Pluto was also atmosphereless. I might have to check again. Moreover, if a weaker planet still has an atmosphere, it's generally a thinner and colder one. Melora showed Julian a photo of her and her brother enjoying their time someplace in a sky, without thicker winter clothing. But regardless, Julian Bashir and Melora appeared to STAY floating whereas if they were on one of the Moon's colony cities, they would only float for a few extra seconds and come back down to the surface straight away. It appears the Elaysians are accustomed to a gravity of less than 1% of Earth's, whereas the Moon's is 16.66--%. --K. Shinohara 22:17, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Venus is "lighter" than the Earth (which is what I said the first time), yet has a thicker atmosphere than the Earth. Pluto does have an atmosphere, which is what I said, yet it is "lighter" than the Moon, which does not (this is part of the reason why Pluto was demoted from planet status). Please read what I said. There is more to atmospheres than simple gravity strength, even within our own solar system. Is it unusual for Elysia to have this higher atmosphere? Sure, but not outside of the realm of possibilities. --OuroborosCobra talk 22:32, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
