    That is one thing that has irked me. Other than SEEING the one that crashed in the Ice nation, they have NOT even touched on any of the other 10 parts of the arc that came down. NOR have they shown any other lands in the world.. Surely there are survivors on other continents...
    Yeah, I know, they're short on numbers for genetic diversity among other things. High number of birth defects when they start to reproduce.
    But compared to trying to live with a people who insist upon trying to kill you, I'd prefer the violent enemy to be dead.

    I'd have to rewatch season 3 to be sure, but I vaguely remember ALIE and Raven looking for where the other parts of the Ark landed because ALIE was looking for Becca's work and she thought that Becca might have put the code or whatever in the Ark systems somewhere. I think Raven mentioned that one part crashed in the ocean and the other parts didn't make it or something.

    I'm really not sure if I'm even remembering it correctly, what I'm remembering could be scenes from a couple of different episodes, or something I'm misremembering. I'm looking for it by skimming through the season 3 episodes on Netflix, I might be wrong about the falling into the ocean bit, I found a part where they thought the 13th station fell into the ocean not one of the Ark parts. I'll keep looking though.


    Edit: I gave up skimming through eps shortly after my original post, I'll rewatch the season eventually and I"'ll try to remember to see if there's any mention of the other parts of the Ark. I don't think 10 parts of the Ark are unaccounted for though. How many parts were there originally? We saw at least one burn up on entry, one crashed and had one survivor hanging off the side of a cliff, Farm station landed in Ice Nation territory. The Arkers on the ground in Arkadia (not counting the ones from Farm station and the cliff girl) came from (at least) two Ark sections.

    Well, since the arc was 12 separate space stations and each got dropped, there should be 10 others out there, 9 after that one burned up on re-entry.. or 8 if you buy into the argument one hit the ocean and so was lost (at sea).

    Not up to date with most of season 4 and thus can't comment on episodes, I am excited to know there will be a 5th season...

    However

    Genocide is not the answer. In that case, I'm going with garhkal's option: they all die and all their fighting was for nothing cause the Earth still won.

    I think the part that was left in space counts as one (maybe), the part Abby, Kane, and Sinclair were in is two, the part that Jaha ( though he got out last minute) and Jackson were in is three (this became Arkadia I think), Farm station is four, we saw one burn up on reentry that's five, the one that crashed landed with one survivor is six, so that's 6 out of a possible 12 accounted for (when the idea was brought up they did say that most of the Ark would burn up, and Jaha asked Sinclair if he could find the parts that wouldn't, so maybe they didn't put people in all 12 stations).

    I just watched the Ark parts of the last ep of season one, in the scene where they're talking about the Ark coming down and they only showed six stations on the monitor (Hydra, Tesla, Mecha, Arrow, Factory, and Alpha) and 5 of those called out "good to go" when it was time to go. Farm Station wasn't one of the names listed or called out, so either it had another name for reentry or it was an unmentioned/unlisted station or the writers forgot what names they gave the stations and decided that since Monty's parents were farmers they would call it Farm station. So there are either 0 or 6 stations unaccounted for, depending on what the writers decide, I guess.

    That's true. Plus other than lots of horses, fish, some deer and that one gorilla, we've not really seen much in the way of animals or insects. Heck i can't remember seeing a single spider or snake.

    Well, it might be that many species haven't survived. Remember, way back in S1 when the kids first landed, they ran into mutated deer, and such, the results of radiation.

    Here you go, better explained than I could:

    All living organisms hold a place in the food chain. For example, plants produce energy from sunlight and provide nutrients for animals, such as rabbits, which are consumed by meat-eating predators, such as mountain lions. Members of the food chain interact with one another and with their environment as part of a complex, interlocking ecological system. Extinction of one species can have a cascading effect on others.

    Ripple Effect on Other Species
    Endangerment or extinction of one species can threaten the viability of another species. Relationships in the food chain are intertwined and often related to environmental changes. For example, the red ant population in Britain plummeted as the result of fewer sheep grazing in pastures. Red ants disappeared because sheep had kept the grass short, which is the preferred micro climate of the red ant. In turn, the paucity of red ants led to the extinction of a large blue butterfly species that eats red ant eggs as part of its life cycle.
