Hmmm... interesting... certainly an attempt to illustrate the other
possibility of what could have happened on Galactica
as well with more desperation and less scruples on the military side.
Interestingly the german ZDF has a mini-series running about the real
story of the german Wehrmacht
during WWII without the mythology that they were "just doing their jobs"
and mostly leaving the atrocities to the SS
... In some ways the (self-)degradation of the german army all the way up to (and down from) the generals back then is echoed in Razor
, but that was most probably not the primary intent there. The same principle likely applies to every army not kept in check internally and/or externally.
They're remaining painfully on topic in some respects, and still decidedly sci-fi nonetheless. Quite respectable, as always.
|Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 3):
Where the hell did the old model Toasters come from? Were they all still in service?
Well, you know... old toasters never die, they just get thrown away...
They reminded me of those japanese soldiers who never realized WWII was long over and remained on post.
