This week a new series of Dissecting Worlds is looking at the
miltiary in genre universes. This premier episode we're looking at
defending the Earth and UNIT in particular...at least to begin
We also muster on parade SHADO from UFO, The Initiative from Buff,
Spectrum and the Lovecraftian antics of Delta Green. there are also
honourable mentions for the BPRD, Ultraviolet, the Intrusion
Counter Measures Group (not force as stated,) &
In the process we consider the nature and loyalities of Earth
Defence organisations, project vs goal orientated organisations,
'Bingo cards', Von Clauswitz, Military v Intelligence
responses, Out of context incidents, cargo cults, the
confused nature of the Buffyverse and because Kehaar is here
uniforms! Lovely, lovely uniforms.
Chap with the hot air, 5 arguments rapid!
