It's all based on a faulty assumption: that the star patterns depicted in the show are legitimate. This can only be true if the premise of the show - that these are beings coming from a different part of the galaxy in an attempt to find Earth - is false. If the premise is true, then the star patterns are not legitimate at all, but instead are the end result of the "documenters" of the events' either inability or lack of desire to depict star patterns that aren't visible from Earth's night sky.
Uh, I'm not exactly following this here...could you rephrase?
I mean, what is this about a documentary? This isn't
, after all.
