It's beautiful, and engaging, and a stunning achievement. However, three thoughts kept popping into my head:

1. It's Dances with Wolves... in space!

2. James Cameron loves bioluminescence. But then, who doesn't?

3. Whoever came up with the word "unobtainium" should have been fired from the project very early on.

UPDATE: Apparently "unobtainium" is a real word. Those engineers and their wacky senses of humor.

Wow, that would be an amazing experience. I can't imagine what Thumper might think of that! But do they have lifeguards? That might be a deal killer.
