David Laughlin eventually catches up with Veronica Neary to tell her that Roy is gone and they have a fling.
Sorry, Bob Balaban and Teri Garr have a date in Ghost World. Had to connect it up in my head somehow...
The aliens offered several choices for meeting sites - that's why the people in India were singing a slightly different song.
America obviously won the bidding process.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind is set in the same universe as Falling Skies.
The tall aliens from the series look like the tall aliens from the movie. After the aliens had the peaceful meeting in Wyoming in the 1970's, they backed off and planned their invasion. (And Steven Spielberg is involved with both works, too!)
- The five planes returned at the beginning of the movie had been missing in 1945, and they were returned 30 years later in the 1970's. The events of Falling Skies happen 30 years after the 1970's. Looks like that's the travel time to their homeworld.
For all their ginormous gee-whiz mothership, these aliens are probably not the only intelligent species out there. They may have shared their knowledge about Earth people and their habits with other races, possibly thru trade or politics, and the more aggressive Predator race decided to come check out just what we were made of. Certainly the CE 3 s would have noted the many major wars such as Korea, Vietnam, etc.; some of their "captives" included the Flight 19 pilots, who would have told them plenty about their training. More disturbingly, it is not impossible for a few of the CE 3 aliens to express a growing dismay over the destructive nature of Earthlings, and the risk we might pose if we ever fully explore space. One may have let slip the Earth mission to the Predator race, letting them know just where we were and what to expect. The Earthlings taken onto the ship might have ended up having to spar with young Predator warriors.
This was supposed to be the original opening to Men in Black
The story in how the MIB was formed was as shown: Federal Agents, Astronomers and One dumb kid meeting Aliens. The Army are the federal agents, Claude is the Astronomer and Roy Neary was the dumb kid.
