That way we can skip all the tedious science and miss out on the miserable Southern California winter (it can get down to the low 50's F at night!).
    and that sounds great. I just can't see us skipping past the parts of the story that bring all the groups(or at least the irwin/dunbar) groups together..and just my opinion, but that seems to be something that should take a little while to play out....im on the same page as you are I think...i just see it taking a little longer to get there

    This is interesting. I myself was disappointed by the generals decision not to research.
    Boulder survives the current predicament without becoming a nuclear haze then he might just be convinced.
    Also FYI 100,000 civilians. there has to be at least one person with a degree in biology or at least a basic knowledge.
    As far as weaponising the Haze from ground zero goes it causes people (bar saul) to go all crazy and start biting people ie becoming "them".
    Probably not ideal as a weapon then.

    About Col. Kimmet (is this the one who you refer to as 'general'?) has a split mind: He is against Tanya or anyone researching the zombie-threat, unless it is specialized and highly controlled personnel, and on the other hand he does not let loose Michael, because he requires Michael to do what he is trained for: to do intel. Therefore I agree with you: if things turn out well enough for Boulder and Irwin, maybe Col. Kimmet might be lectured and change his mind; but as of now I think at least one of the two locations will go down ... and with it Col. Kimmet as well.
    About scientists in Boulder: I hold it as likely that there are enough scientists (of biology and medicine), who could do research on the zombies; and I even think they do some basic research; but considering special rules that Col. Kimmet and other decision makers might have established, especially in order to prevent people doing experiments and risking too many lives etc. blabla, I guess that - if any - research would be very highly controlled and kept in check; also they would focus on the Regulars, and not on Little Ones. Therefore the yield of the Boulderite research would supposedly pretty insignificant.

    All the best!

    Well Liam, there *might* be some scientists in Boulder left: Biotech companies in Boulder, Colorado.

    It is all there: people, equipment and some kind of extraordinary motivation.

    True. And soldiers/ military personnel trying to keep some specific rules up preventing humankind from obliterating itself. Remember what Col. Kimmet complains again and again: No experiments, we lost too many people, blablabla ... Michael had to throw in really strong arguments to keep Tanya alive; and she may only do research on exceptional material, because she is a medic AND she is locked up ... I just apply her situation on the few scientists available in Boulder. I may be totally wrong ... But I would consider it kind of odd that Col. Kimmet and other decision maker would agree on double standards and allow Boulderites to do things in which a single mistake might turn out to be a lot more devastating then something going wrong in Fort Irwin ...

    I think: Future will tell us.

    Ok so my plan is a little outdated but I'm going to clutch at straws.
    Never know, it could turn out Datu is qualified?
