Hunters ARE Indeed Machines
Posted By: Kalin AmbroseDate: 2/11/05 11:12 a.m.

I was reading through "The Pfhor" page and noticed the section talking about whether or not Hunters are really machines or just Pfhor with armored plating. I have some evidence from Marathon I which suggests that they are indeed machines.

If you read through the "Terminal 2: 'Success' message" in Cool Fusion you will notice Leela's reference to the Hunters taking no prisoners:

The other Alien was named Hunter by the crew due to its size
and appearance. It fires an energy weapon from its shoulder
and is heavily armored. Unlike the Fighters, the Hunters
never take prisoners.

This caught my attention because it would make sense for the Hunters to take no prisoners if they were machines. It would be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, for the Pfhor to program them to take select individuals as prisoners. It would be much easier for the Pfhor to simply use them as "killing machines" and leave it to the Pfhor fighters to take the prisoners.
