Granted, not sure what good an escape pod can do in deep space, but still.
David wakes up the crew of 17 - is David part of that 17? Does Vickers count as she is already awake?
There are 16 escape spaces.
The escape pod will keep you alive for 50 years apparently.

kjohnson26 said:I think that there are 8 small single occupant escape pods. The escape module/lifeboat holds an unspecified number. I would assume it could hold another 8-10 people.
tifosi77 confused me with his figures, let's start again - 8 single occupancy pods, 3 in two chambers on level 2, 2 obviously elsewhere and then the large lifeboat which could physically hold more than the remainder of the crew. I wonder how many hypersleep chambers it contains though?

In this shot there are three suits hanging to the left. I'm guessing there are three to the right. Also, there are only six pairs of boots. If the unit hold more than six, maybe there is a second room either next to it or above or below this.

I think those are the individually deployable pods, not the module. Each shoulder of the ship has an ESC label. It's an odd configuration but it may be that one shoulder contains 6 pods and the other contains 2.

3 on one side, 3 on the other, 2 on another deck.

Is that just conjecture or are you basing that one something in the blue prints?

Commonsense actually, if there are eight in total and only six on level 02 then there must be two elsewhere - level 01 maybe?
