You and me both. A friend and I were talking about how idiotic it was
that an organization of scientists could possibly take out a race as
violent and well-trained as the Klingons in a battle, much less a war.
A Destroid Monster would have fun shooting right through Gundam
battleships and MS carriers, don't you think? I love that shot in
"Do You Remember Love?" where one of those mechs do that.


"They exit quickly.  The ship explodes, which stops all the droids and
 just makes everything great, because it's always enjoyable when a
 serious conflict is resolved with a slapstick accident."
