: But wait, later in M2, Durandal says that the pfhor stole the green uniforms
: from the science crew and put them on the simulacrums, so the science crew
: was left to run around naked.

Heh. Interesting twist on the story. But the green Bobs (airlock technicians) removed their green overalls so that they wouldn't be mistaken for Sims by their crew mates.

As for the origin of Simulacrums. Back in the early days, I remember Jason or someone else at Bungie saying that Sims were humans with their guts scooped out and filled with explosives. That kinda got morphed into synthetic humans in Marathon 2. Probably because the former origin was a little too unpalatable.

Marathon really is a gruesome game. ;)
