He didn't die on the planet, he is a recurring character, we'll see him again throughout the series on Earth.

Then why is his publicity pic on the ancient space ship?

A) It is a publicity photo. Where it takes place makes little difference.

B) If you are desperate for an in-story reason, perhaps he is "there" via one of the long range communication devices.

Yep, it's the ancient communication stones. The nametag on his uniform says "Young", but the character's name is Telford.

The medic Tamara Johanson, was tending to a wounded solider who looked alot like LDP. But it looks to have been the Asian man who sat next to Scott at the dinner table, and not Col Telford, who was last seen piloting a 302 fighter against the attacking Lucian Alliance.

Re: Missing cast member (spoiler maybe?)

I assume that even if he's recurring, they wanted Lou Diamond Phillips in the promotions because of his celebrity as compared to most of the cast.

Just like they wanted that guy from Terminator 2 for Atlantis? And then they killed him off in the pilot, after heavily promoting his appearance?

Oh wait. They'd never try to trick the audience.

I didn't see that ads for 'Rising,' so I can't comment on that. But Lou Diamond Phillips has long been announced to (a) be a recurring character and (b) not be a character that makes it to the Destiny.

See I thought that was LDP.

I thought - that was a bit of a fizzog, getting such a "name" actor and then killing him off with virtually no screen time.

Here's the scene, and Tamara called him Simms while trying to save him.

Didn't they also say he was the base's Chief Medical Officer?

Re: Missing cast member (spoiler maybe?)

Yep, kill off a guy that looks just like him, and then don't give him a single scene in the last hour once everything's calmed down a little. Brilliant.

As for the dead guy being called Simms, that's kind of beside the point. At this point in the game, without getting heavy into the pregame spoilers and hype, I haven't learned most of these people's names. Let's see... there's Rush (don't know his first name), Col Young (remembered it because he's kind of old, see what I did thar?), and Chloe (easy to remember, kind of slutty sounding name). The rest? I've got nothing. Medic? No clue... fat kid? Not sure... Angry black maniac cliche? Not the foggiest. I guess now I know he's Telford. First name? No idea.

I think if (at least) three of us here on this board thought their 'big name' died during the premiere, then they fucked up.
