Re: Genesis Question

Good points all. But ST2 seems to play up the passion and devotion of the Marcuses, and ST3 sort of continues this by making it so personal for David that he feels he's forced to cheat, in secrecy, and on an issue he knows will ruin his career. There's thus reason to believe that the project was under close scrutiny and external pressure, but not enough of it to prevent David from doing things that wouldn't show up on the official progress reports.

Carol's thing with microbes IMHO falls closer to the "passion" than "pressure" end of the scale, as she's the "clean" one, not tempted to cheat despite being the formal project leader.
