*** Jordan says in one scene that she is nineteen. It's still not clear whether or not she and Mitch get physical, though.

*** Jordan is seventeen. Since they are both minors and close in age allows for a pass as most people would consider their relationship acceptable. Sherry, however, shouldn't get such consideration and likely the only reason the movie was allowed to get away with it is due to double standards.

* What age is Mitch when Sherry Nugil vamps on him? Her dialogue states that she [[JailBaitWait waited three years for him to be legal]], and I thought that age of consent in California is 18. Since he comes to "Pacific Tech" at 15, that means that one of several things must be the case:

**** Furthermore, it would be ''by far'' the most effective ABM system yet invented, and mightn't mitigating the megadeaths of a possible nuclear exchange during the ColdWar perhaps be a good thing?

*** To be more precise, they "took advantage of the college giving them a free ride on their education and research and getting them a job post-graduation", but translating that to a military scholarship is equivalent to them being told they'd just be doing disaster relief and humanitarian aid(which is how it's often sold)... and then being sent to quell a riot by eliminating everything moving. Killing undisclosed people - in ''peacetime'' - was NotWhatISignedOnFor.

** Don't forget, the opening scene of the CIA meeting explicitly stated that the Agency had ''gone behind the backs'' of the President and other legitimate authority to arrange for the laser's construction. Agency heads are going to roll now that the project's existence has been exposed, and by the time the resulting scandal has run its course -- whether publically or in-house and in secret -- cheaper options like drones will already be in development, turning the film's laser-satellite assassination concept into an overbuilt boondoggle by comparison.

*** Someone attempting to break a law? And young people having sex with each other even if it's not fully sanctioned by the law and society? [[RealityIsUnrealistic Gosh, that never happens.]]
** Sherry's a brain-chaser, not a pedophile. Whatever the law might have to say about it, she may have been waiting for Mitch to be physically mature enough that ''she'' could find him appealing.

** When she said she'd been waiting three years for him, I didn't think she meant for him personally, but for the next super-genius to come along at the school. If she tried Chris when he was a freshman, that should have been about three years before Mitch's arrival.
