What a great episode. I would say this about the Augments, they were physically and intellectually superior but emotionally not. Their ability to be introspective and conscientious was greatly overshadowed by their other traits so they were essentially, “imbalanced”. Also, you… someone… was critical on Dr Soong’s “fixing the defects” bit I think that because Soong is a scientist himself he didn’t apply the negative connotation to the term as the rest of us would or as the Augments did. From an engineering perspective, all products have “defects” as it were. It’s far more black and white using that perspective.
Such a great discussion! Thank you so much.
