Random MIDA theory
Posted By: PhiltronDate: 7/2/15 5:44 p.m.

I was reading the terminal on "the Rose" in the original Marathon, and I came across this passage about MIDA:

The organization has survived as an underground terrorist organization, and remains active to this day. In its underground state, it fosters terrorism throughout Sol, and due to its spectacular funding and excellent personnel, it has grown to be one of the most feared terrorist groups active anywhere in Sol.

The term "excellent personnel" seems odd to me. Like, do they have really good secretaries and clerical aides? Probably not what it means. I'm assuming it means they have really good soldiers since they're a terrorist group.

And that's when I had a random idea. What if the "excellent personnel" that MIDA have are actually the military cyborgs? I haven't delved too deep in the story page to see if it's possible.

We know that Martian insurgents (which I'm assuming is synonymous with MIDA) hid ammo and weapons on the Marathon thanks to what Durandal tells us on Blaspheme Quarantine. Could MIDA also have smuggled the 10 cyborgs onto the Marathon?
