But I do think you\'re missing Bob\'s point. He\'s not looking at it from canon or story; he\'s examining the visual design. He draws correctly on the space marine history to Heinlen, and discusses how it works usually, and why Halo is odd in this respect. He also notes that Halo is, ostensibly, arguing against the kind of thinking that informs its own visual design. It\'s a more macro level analysis, and I really do think it\'s not a case of Did Not Do The Research. I leave it to you, but I\'d delete it.
