I mean seriously, absolutely hilarious and somewhat sadistic! I love it!

"Nolan: How ya doin up there doc?"

"Doctor: If you rush me...we go boom. If you shout at me...we go boom. Now you know how I am doing."

Who can't love this character? She is awesome!

Reminds me of a character in Farscape, been a while since I have watched that though.

To be honest that was probably one of the worst lines she had.

She was awesome, although i think this would fit better under Story & lore in the gameplay forum. Just loved her no nonsense, straightforward character.

Edit: @exes, that just tells you how good the rest of her lines are. lol.

She had about five lines total. This one stood out and made me laugh just due to nolan's facial expressions.

Technically, this isn't gameplay considering that it was in the show...

Indeed. Her berating of Irisa was one of my favorite lines of hers.

I like them in the TV series, they're extremely sarcastic, have an air of unspoken authority and people just listen to them instead of being the tech-geeks everyone ignores until they need help.

But in the game, the one we actually got to see speak and interact ended up being some sort of automaton-robot-emotionless version.

Unfortunately this is true... I kind of wanted to see more personality in her character.

I liked the character in general except for one thing, her voice. She sounds like she has seriously swollen lips (no not those lips, you have a dirty mind, shoo!) or something.

If you keep posting threads, we all go Boom. :)

She needs to become a main character and get at least one episode focused on her.

I don't like how aliens are represented at all, but the character of the doc is awesome. I think she'd be awesome in ANY human-only TV show, too.

I totally agree, she is awesome!
She has a little bit of the mad scientist and another bit of the typical "I'm surrounded by idiots"-genius mixed up with a "whatever" -attitude.

Snowranger19

But she is a cyborg so that superiority is a given.

In all fairness, it's too early to say. We only have one indogene in the game thus far, after all. That isn't necessarily a reflection on the game vs. show's portrayal of a race so much as a difference between individuals. I would actually much prefer if we get some variety in how they're portrayed. People generally have a pretty negative view towards stereotyping these days, but when it comes to fantasy and sci-fi races, we're all more than willing to accept "everyone from this race is like this" as a normal way of thinking.

Yeah she was great, Irisa is my favourite though.

Both the Indogene characters in the show threw me off. The one in the game. Evas partner, made me believe that the race was more neutral or like "Data" from Star Trek in how they speak and deal with situations.

I don't know if it was poor writing or if it was just how they wanted the games character to be, but it threw me off regardless.

Indogenes in general are said to see themselves as superior to other races, and so do the castithians. However, life on earth might have changed some of them.

You ain't never lie. Mmm @ that bald head. I'd rub more than just that for good luck.


Only one???

One is more than enough. We don't want the rest of the cast to be jelly.

I like the one in the game better too. It was what I was expecting in the show, but apparently they are not all the same.

That is a human tribal response.
It has nothing to do with stereotypes.

When we don't understand something completely we turn the things we don't understand into "Them" and all of "Them" "Do the same thing" because our experience is so limited.

Sci-fi isn't written with psycho-analysts directing the plot. It's written by "normal" people generally. People whom don't realize this tribal characteristic being played into their fiction.

So basically that is why any stereotype exists. Lack of understanding. If the creatures written have a pre-canon background that is diverse you almost always lose that "all the same". See>Farscape.

At first I was thinking that she talked weird because of the makeup and such. She seems to have trouble moving her mouth... But the Mayor's assistant guy didn't seem to have a problem with it. I guess it's just how she talks.

I was really suprised when she called Irisa a *****, seem a little unprofessional. Although she probably isn't used to surprises.

I was thinking something similar. I like the character and the sarcasm, but it feels forced as if its horribly difficult to do the lines seriously in all that makeup.

I was referring to racial stereotypes that people create for each other, which are the RESULT of said tribal mentality. I'm sure in-universe the different races have their own stereotypes for each other. In any case, I'm not against some shared cultural traits; it makes sense that some would develop due to a shared background. A large canon background is not always a guarantee against lame generalizations, though. Just look at how thick Mass Effect's codex is, but most of the aliens you encounter are nothing but a composite of their most distinct racial differences to "the norm".
