Use of 'Marshal'[edit]

Surely the usage of 'Marshal' in the text is incorrect? My understanding is that 'Lord Marshal' is a title, not a reference to someone called Marshal who is a Lord. Hence sentences such as 'Suspicious of his abilites, Marshal has Riddick taken into his fortress ...' should be worded as 'Suspicious of his abilites, the Marshal has Riddick taken into his fortress ...' In fact, I think that '... the Lord Marshal ...' should probably be used as etiquette probably dictates that a full title be used. There are numerous instances of this.

Indeed. Fix it if you want. ♣ Klptyzm Chat wit' me § Contributions ♣ 02:44, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Bounty[edit]

It's been awhile since I've seen this movie. In the plot description it says there's a "1.5 million bounty" placed on Riddick's head. 1.5 million what? Dollars? Some other form of future currency? Someone please clarify this. - SoSaysChappy (talk) 03:46, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

They are Universal Credits or UC's, that the bounty, this is explained in the DVD, with the extra material of the film.--201.247.28.25 (talk) 03:23, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Actually it's UD, as in Universal Denominations. Outlined in TCoR: Escape from Butcher Bay and the DVD if I recall right. And I hope this was asked from inclusion in the article. Which it probably doesn't need to be anyway. 144.96.26.32 (talk) 05:46, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
The plot-section of an article only describes what´s actually in the film. As no one in the film mention any currency, it would be wrong to come up with a currency in the plot. But as "Universal Denominations" is mentioned in the extras of the DVD, it would be ok to mention it as some sort of trivia or background-information in other parts of the article. --93.135.62.224 (talk) 10:05, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Science fiction?[edit]

There's no science in this; this is fantasy, in space. I suggest the genre be reconsidered. 110.184.186.68 (talk) 07:10, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

It deals with space travel, futuristic technology, alien lifeforms and the paranormal. It's the epitome of science fiction. The fact that most of the subject matter is not scientifically sound is irrelevant, that's not what science fiction means. There is room for some suspension of disbelief. --92.238.158.191 (talk) 08:00, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
