I was taking a look at the above Easter Egg from Greatest Hits, thanks to our friends at the Tailsection, and though many people are focusing on the “white rabbit logo” what you will also notice is that it says “Moon Pool” Submarine Port. By literal definition, a “Moon Pool” is “a feature of some research vessels and undersea platforms. A room, with an airtight door, will have an open floor that extends right through the bottom of the hull.” However, The Moon Pool is also a book by A. Merritt with a description below:
“Set on the island of Ponape, full of ruins from ancient civilizations, the novel chronicles the adventures of a party of explorers who discover a previously unknown underground world full of strange peoples and super-scientific wonders. From the depths of this world, the party unwittingly unleashes the Dweller, a monstrous terror that threatens the islands of the South Pacific. Although Merritt did not invent the lost world novel, following in the footsteps of Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Burroughs and others, he greatly elaborated upon that tradition.”
Makes you wonder about next week’s episode and the implications this may have for that particular hatch itself.
