Re: Question about Adm. Marcus [spoilers]
The real question about Marcus is - what the hell is he wearing in the second half of the film?
While he was living in Britain, Admiral Marcus was a huge fan of historic football and especially of Mario Balotelli when he played for Manchester City, so he patterned the Section 31 uniforms on Balotelli's goal celebration undershirt/overshirt pullover combo.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
