Re: An alternate viewpoint
1) It was not my intention to be or sound condescending. I'm sorry if I came across that way. My comment did give the link for other readers' clarity, but I tried to specify that you had made that distinction yourself and so I wasn't trying to lecture you.
I responded that way because I was seriously asking: has anyone (here, or in the movie, or elsewhere) called Wikus the hero? You said Wikus was proposed as the hero and that's something I certainly never said.
2) My assumption had been that they were Generic Technology Bits, fallen from the mothership or scavenged from human looters. This is just an assumption, it's not supported by the movie. But I don't remember seeing any parts on any of the alien weaponry that matched the junk Chris et.al. were finding for power sources. If they did match something weapony, I'll concede the point.
