Re: TOS S1: The Return of the Archons

@Peter G

Then many are ignorant, or trying and failing to help, and few are evil. I suppose that if you keep trying to help and it is only making things worse, then they are ignorant, but the computer eventually seems to realize in its last moments that it was in fact the problem.

Re: TOS S1: A Taste of Armageddon

They seem to care about not hurting people not involved and only try to kill the crew once it was listed as a casualty, and even then they seem regretful. While we don't ever see the other faction involved, they seemed similar. But you raise fair points. Also, another thing I noticed later on, what is stopping one side from just bombing the other with thousands of tricobalt devices? If it's all virtual, then someone could probably just design one of those drone thingies to constantly bombard the surface with as many weapons as they like, essentially decimating the population.

Re: TOS S1: A Taste of Armageddon

How, in 500 years of fighting, has collateral damage against people not in the war never come up?

Re: TOS S1: The Return of the Archons

I find this episode to be slightly sad. In my opinion, to be evil is to knowingly and consciously take the free will from a living, sentient being against their own will. So by that logic, the computer was not evil, it was just doing wht it thought was right.

Re: Star Trek III: The Search For Spock

Can we admit that Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is a stupid name, though?
