Hey there! I’m relatively new to the Marathon community, so forgive me for not knowing the proper ways to cite terminals on this forum.
Anyway. In the infamous Bernard Strauss terminal on Beware of Low Flying Defense Drones (I think that was the level), Bernard Strauss writes:
“Short, but to the point.
He was surrounded by his 'bodyguards'. How ironic. "This, the
grandest technological achievement of all of mankind..."”
Now, I would like to draw attention to the emphasis placed upon the term bodyguards. The word is in quotation marks. Could that indicate that his bodyguards are, in fact, battleroids themselves? Maybe this could be what Strauss is referring to as ironic (just as much as his subsequent statement, anyways).
Could MIDA have implanted battleroids as his bodyguards, or perhaps he is using them in accordance with the rules set forth by the United Interplanetary League? Am I looking too deep into what was most likely an innocuous statement? Probably.
Either way, that’s just some off the cuff ideas of mine that I haven’t seen addressed before. Do you guys have any thoughts on that?
