  • Corporate espionage on a galactic scale.

    5.0
    First we had a PKD setting that felt like HP Lovecraft was producing. Tentacle aliens, mind games, insanity, things you can not unsee.



    Next we had a X-Files geeky sidekick with TNA clones trying to uh... get something they had lost( how/why/etc). Now we have Cade infiltrating a college due to a supernatural death that read like something out of Scanners. Lara a Russian fire starter is doing some corporate sabotage on a US Government project to protect the Earth from space invaders using satellites and nukes.



    Well... yeah that is so not good idea due to radiation, fallout, errors, etc. Let alone the aliens convincing this Mata Hari to do their dirty work for them. Also this episode formally introduces us to the NSA/Illuminati who we can guess will be the other shade of gray working against our heroes. Cheeseball episode worth a few laughs over the lame death scenes. "AGGHHHGHGH C-SQUARE.... AHHHHHHHHHHH *moans in pleasure* BLARGGHHHHH *dies*"moreless

    • Foster: Dr. Hagen was right when she said that memories can either push you forward or hold you back. I carry the memory of Hannah like a soldier carries his rifle into war, a war most folks don't even know exists, a war that may some day engulf us all.

    • Foster: I leave Rock Creek Colorado convinced that the false memories planted by Vanessa were a propaganda scheme to discredit those of us who know the truth. That's why I changed Dr. Hagen's letter to encourage others to step foreword and be heard.

    • Nostradamus:
      The trickster seeds the mind
      With paralyzing terror
      Bearing false witness
      To the bitter truth at hand.

    • Stockholm syndrome is a psychological response sometimes seen in a hostage, in which the hostage exhibits seeming loyalty to the hostage-taker, in spite of the danger (or at least risk) the hostage has been put in.
