In Response To: Re: Tour of Duty: Downward Spiral (Hokuto)

: I'm so sad we can't read S'pht jokes about Pfhor computers. I BET THEY'RE
: GREAT. I love working for the S'pht.

: Excellent write-up! Ah, how I wish I had time to play through this scenario
: again myself - there really are some neat levels...

Fascinating that the s'pht have emotional tone and humor that we just don't get. These terminals are more emotionless and dull than Leela. In Marathon 2 there was a sense they felt despair during the war and were purposely fighting badly to help you... this is just "dump it in the receptacle and get your next mission, oh, btw, it's urgents. Suspense!"

I wonder what the group means? Never anticipated what would happen when a (group?dependent?network?) is isolated from similar (peer?) networks... is this a joke about their collectivism?
