In Response To: Tour of Duty - Sorry Don't Make It So (PerseusSpartacus)

: Wait, when did Tycho shift from feeling merciful towards humans to hating
: them? When did 'these poor people' become 'the colonists who never did
: anything but use me'? All in all, Tycho's motives are kind of strange.

Okay, not sure if this has anything to do with anything, but here's what Jason Jones had to say about Tycho:

Tycho, after having been destroyed in the initial attack, was reanimated by a splinter group of compilers "in Durandal's image". That Durandal's true self-awareness was a fluke is made clear by Tycho's obvious insanity, *even* though the S'pht attempted to duplicate the progression of Durandal's rampancy exactly. While Tycho did not play any role of consequence in Marathon, we thought it was important to demonstrate that Durandal's condition was unique.

So Tycho isn't truly self-aware, just insane. Sounds useful somehow, but I'm not sure quite how.

Vale,
Perseus
