Re: Security or Marines?
Yeah, that's why they gave the project a name like Genesis, instead of something completely ambiguous. There must be an entry in the TVtropes site for the way top secret projects in movies and TV always have highly relevant and revealing names. Project "invisibility" or "ultimate weapon" wouldn't draw any attention. No.
I don't know that Genesis
was a bad choice, as most would assume it had something to do with the Bible. That it actually involved the creation of new life is something of a coincidence.
