Do Royal Navy ships run on GMT, as they must move time zones every day? I imagine submarines must, to maintain shift patterns.

I think star trek maintained ship time.

I imagine maintaining a consistent timing system across Starfleet would be extremely challenging, due to the extreme distances and relativistic effects of superluminal travel.

I'm not particularity familiar with his work, but I quite enjoyed A Million Ways To Die In the West, but that was probably mostly due to Charlize Theron.

Have we all watched into the bad lands? It's got a mad Max vibe and decent blood spray. Really good gripping stuff, 2 seasons and I get sad when I run out.

I thought the first season was excellent with an interesting setting, good plot and well choreographed brutal fight sequences. The second season felt like a different show, with silly amounts of blood and Nick Frost as unfunny comic relief.

I agree with all that, shame about nick frost, still enjoying it though. Better than most things on telly atm.

Run on Zulu Time (it is GMT), but also adjustment for location in the world..

Has to be on Zulu for communication back to the UK, and local for where the ship is.
