  1. Mr. Speck says:

    That’s… pretty callous.

  2. TeaAddict1 says:

    I think she’s trying to convince herself it was worth it.

  3. BrickVoid says:

    Wait … Five people are dead because of the Bounty Hunters sent to kill her, not because of her little gambit, that only made it more likely for random crewmembers to die. I don’t see why Belinda should take any blame for their wrongdoings. Killing people just isn’t right, and it’s certainly not right just because they got in the way.

    • Pyradonis says:

      Belinda should take blame because it was her plan that brought the bounty hunters, known to be extremely dangerous, on board the Muffin. There would have been a ton of other possible plans which didn’t endanger crew members.
      Also, her attitude is pretty cold.

    • CommanderBalok says:

      Yes, her plan brought dangerous people on the ship and crew died because of it. That happens to people who serve in military forces. It’s why we honor that service in various ways. Other plans would have lured the bounty hunters to other places, possibly to people less capable of handling them, resulting in more deaths.

      • LolthFollower says:

        Or she could’ve lured them to an uninhabited location, as she ended up doing anyways, where nobody would’ve gotten in the way at all.

      • Pyradonis says:

        The universe is full of space where no living beings are. They could have lured the bounty hunter’s ship into a minefield, for example. Anyway, you are saying it was their job to get in the way, which is true, but Belinda does not seem to value that. Her laconic comment indicates that she didn’t expect the security personnel to get in the way. But they did, because of course, they didn’t know about her oh so clever plan.

        • Thomas says:

          she needed to fake Shauna’s death and to get one of the bounty hunters to bring her (Ha’at) realistically so they could easily win the fight

    This has always bothered me in movies… When the antagonist sends out security, or the police, or the national guard, to stop the “hero”. And these guys are just doing their jobs, told a dangerous individual is loose and needs stopped. It’s one thing if its just a few… But some movies have the “hero” kill dozens of innocents. I find it pretty dispicable if the reason they are murdering waves of innocents is ultimately selfish, and not to pursue justice or fight a corrupt system. I think it was “Ultraviolet” that had something like that. Where the government was going to execute the main character as being too dangerous for society, as they had turned this person into a super soldier or something… And then this person goes out and kills so many people just to save their own rear end.
