    there should be audio. there was when i played it yesterday. Anyway its a clip from An Ultra Cool early Cameron directed movie about a group of intergalactic explorers who are on a mission to detonate planets that may cause Earth harm in the next buillion years and their trials and tribulations such as lack of toilet paper and Smart Bombs with Attitudes.

    The clip started with it`s "mute" on...

    Dark Star was a classic! Low budget & high concept Sci-Fi.

    Yep the Alien is what he says Alien was based on but I think it was based more on "It Terror Beyound Space" . Ps For some reason It loaded up with the speaker set to mute try turning on the speaker on the video.Ill check my DVD for the Credits but I think it was a Collaberation Cameron/Carpenter effert as many early career films were. STILL a classic Movie Though.Whats even odder about such collaberations was George Pal`s War Of The Worlds film Which was a collaberation with Cecil B. DeMille, who gets almost no credit for it.

    I know this makes too much sens and would spoil the tension, but why not just ask the bomb, "What is your purpose? Are you not intended to destroy a target? Are we on your target list?"

    So, are you saying smart bombs are bad because they can be defeated by a logical trap?
    I think the greater concern should be "an intelligent being was created for the sole purpose of being destructive."

    That`s just me. I`m not looking forward to such an abusive use of cybernetic intelligence as my having to convince my toaster that making toast is worthwhile contribution to society or, having failed to convince it, coming home to burned down apartment.

    Firefighter 2: "What`s wrong with people like you? Didn`t you talk to it?"

    Well the Main reason Smart Bombs are bad is when the Bomb is finally convenced that All reality is just erronious Data and it is alone in the universe. It looks into the darkness and sees it`s alone Then in a streak of Biblical Brillence says "LET THERE BE LIGHT!" then BOOM!

    They`re nearly became militants. Because a militant is defined as someone who was killed by a drone. Yup, that`s how America defines anyone killed by a drone.

    ===== SPOILER ALERT =====

    LOL, I`ve just read the plot and it it ends when the computer, having been introduced to Cartesian Doubt declares "Let there be light!" and detonates.

    So in the end, they are killed by religion.

    @OldOllie: No, it`s not a "self-guided smart bomb" eh? It gets it`s orders and detonates at the exact -time- it is told to. That`s the problem! It seems that the propulsion part of the Missile and the Bomb part are totally separate! So the Missile is "launched" (but gets stuck) and the Bomb doesn`t know or care where it is!! It`s just going to blow up in T Minus 70 Seconds...

    @CodeJockey: Red Dwarf character: The Toaster :-)

    @Draculya: "So in the end, they are killed by religion."

    Nooooo! You completely MISSED THE POINT!
    In the end? They are killed by GOD! :-/

    (Who, in this case, happens to be a really big Bomb...)
