Yes I am quite saddened that Marta dies. A cure for her madness is so close, yet instead she's just used in the most awful way by another mad man.

^ Marta is quite a loopy character. I mean, the whole seduction thing with Kirk and then she wants to kill him saying "I have to kill you because you're my lover!" But with the neural conditioner, there'd be hope. I too was a bit distraught at seeing her demise. It was another facet to Garth that makes you realize what a monstrous personality he'd become. There was really no good reason to kill her. His explosive could've been tested out in a far less permanent manner...
While I wasn't saddened by Marta's demise, I found it somewhat disturbing that we're watching her death through the viewscreen at the base. There's a creepy detachment to the proceedings, as if it's some kind of experiment. I doubt this was the intention, but that's what I took away from it.
