What kind of Chemical freak designed the MARAHTON?
Posted By: Ernie TMBMDate: 12/12/01 4:30 p.m.

Indeed, my question isn't really all that relevant, but:
Who (or what, if it was an A.I) designed one of Mars' moons inner hallways and architecture into what we know as the Marathon?

I know I'm trying to rationalize something that also has giant flying robot-aliens (Juggernauts) and crazy wacked out computer A.I's... But hey.

I just finished playing M1A1 (I have never played all the way through Marathon 1 before this... shame on me) and I've realized that for a colony ship, its design pretty much matches that of a insane deathtrap.
Who in their *right mind* places an access terminal 100 feet into the air? Who, would contrive elaborate puzzles involving platforms and SHOOTING a switch to trigger them into action that is *10 meters + into the air*?

I know Marathon is insanely great, but still. The design of Marathon makes *no* sense from a conventional standpoint.

#:-)

Any comments are welcome on this one.

Woo wooo, I can't wait till that shoot-a-tick-andcrash-your-computer bug is fixed in Marathon... it gets hard to keep run away from them when your being tailed by 6 of the little buggers.

-Regards all,
