You know what I dont get
« on: September 19, 2008, 05:29:18 PM »
I just got done readin the fight seen in book #50, when a thought entered my head. Why do they always let Visser Three morph. in 50 when he started morphing Cassie went to make sure Kelly(Auxillary Animorph) was ok. after some talking and narration tht would probably have been about 3 or 4 mintues long, Visser Three's morph was comeplete and a perfect oportunity to kill him while he's morphing, was wasted. He always chooses ridiculously huge morphs that probably take while to comeplete and in the mean time, he's probably as helpless the Animorphs when they're in mid-morph. I dont get it, as smart as the Animorphs are im shocked they've never tried to get him while he's morphing

They don't want to kill him. If they do, he would be replaced by someone more clever, like Visser One. It didn't take her long at all to figure out they were Human.

On the other hand, Visser One is the one pushing for a covert infestation. In a way she would be more dangerous, but on the other hand she can't morph. She also doesn't want to go out in the open with the war.

Better the enemy you know, than the one you don't. Therefore, they don't try too hard to kill Visser Three.

Well, He is morphing from one deadly creature to another, while the animorphs morph from weak creature to a deadly one.

Um...I think it's something like in #52, Jake tells the others to wait for the controllers to finish morphing. It's more right or something.

Hahaha, waiting for an enemy to strengthen itself is the worst idea ever.
Until then we fight.

I know Jake's morals have been questioned several times, but he's usually a nice guy and didn't think it was right to kill helpless people. You may remember that they refused to kill or seriously injure Human Controllers wherever possible.

Yea but...this is Visser Three we're talking about. I dont think jake would feel too bad about killing him when he cnt defend himself. I wouldnt feel bad

Yeah I know that, I was talking about the Human Controllers who end up with the morphing power. As for Visser Three, I'm pretty sure he's been heavily guarded almost every time we've seen him morph. Plus he probably morphs fairly fast due to lots of experience, so it's unlikely they'd reach him while he's vulnerable.

Would have been realistic to see an attempt, though. Even if it was a failure.

when have a lot of Hork Bajir and Humans ever stopped the animorphs? and when Visser 3 fought Tobias in the book where u find out Elfangor is his dad, he wasnt guarded by anyone. It was just him, Tobias, and the Hork Bajir kid the animorphs were trying to save. so there was another chance for an Animorph to kill Visser Three in mid-morph. Wait....was it just the three of them? I gotta re-read the book but Im pretty sure the other controllers were being occupied by the other animorphs.

Well it doesn't make much sense reality wise but plot wise Visser can't be defeated to the end. Who else are they going to fight in the final epic battle? Plus they needed Alloran for Ax's challenge.

In war there's no right or wrong. Either you kill or you get killed. Anything in between only jeopardizes you and your teammates.
Moral ethics can be discussed in therapy sessions once peace has returned.
