I think it would be a hoot if an Abominable Intelligence ended up achieving the terrifying goal of far outstripping it's creator's intelligence, only to use that power to improve humans in ways the humans found entirely agreeable and sensible. Then the Imperium would have to destroy it on principle, being otherly and an Abominable Intelligence!

The White Zone is for loading and unloading only. If you have to load, or if you have to unload, go to the White Zone. You'll love it... it's a way of life.

Jeff Megall: Probably. But it's an easy fix. One line of dialogue. 'Thank God we invented the... you know, whatever device.'

Human going the Tau direction officially confirmed Altho not really tied to this topic, thought it would be cool to show for those that didnt see. I can just see terrorists snatching one of these and convert it to a mobile support platform. There's also a facebook page in case vids dont work on that site.
