  • should have been titled Tank Rights

    This episode deals with some aspects of humanity. They deal who has "human" rights. They display the problem of what's debated now. Do clones or Tanks as they are referred to, have the same right as natural born people? What is neat about this episode is that is written as if there is three classes of people, natural born, tanks and marines. While there is sufficient action, this one focuses more on Hawkes and how he deals will bring a tank and a marine. He is given a decision being a marine and choosing a dream of finding family. The alien encounter was drawn out throughout the episode and given the capabilities of the aliens it should have been a thirty second battle. I still cant get over watching them use 1990 weapons and pistols.
