Tropes

  • Mind Screw Destiny puts Young through a variety of scenarios, with no end in sight.
  • Quit Your Whining Scott's pep talk includes this as well as assurances of Young's ability as a commander
  • Sanity Slippage Young after a few rounds of Destiny's simulations
  • Unwinnable Training Simulation Destiny keeps running no-win scenarios on Colonel Young, with no obvious way to get out of the fully immersive simulations.
