I also loved the Mithraists and their Larper outfits... one of them even says he is a "Cleric". The Mithraists seem totally incongruous and cheesy, and it's hard to say why it worked so well for me. Maybe my take-away is, to endure on a generation-spanning space mission, the travelers would indeed become more cult-like and bizarre over time. (The Expanse presents a similar ideas.)
Finally, shout out to I Am Mother, an interesting Netflix film from a year ago, which explored a very similar themes. It was covered on a Bald Move podcast.
A couple months ago, the whole family on stay at home orders, I walk out to the rest of the family in the back yard to my wife saying something like, "stay back let me get a stick." I ask what's up and she says that my young boys told her there was a snake and that it's under the modular outdoor sofa. I flip the thing up and am shocked by a 5' long dark snake just sitting on the stone patio. My boys are like, " see dad told you." I got a shovel and promised the boys I wouldn't hurt it but wanted it to scurry off. Which it did as I approached. Thinking that it was a good time to go over some general safety about snakes I started in that they did the right thing in telling us and that they shouldn't try to grab them or anything. To which my older son (4 yrs old) replies that they didn't tell us right away because he wasn't sure it was real. So he touched it on the head to see if it was real, "and it was real dad!"
