I'd say that Scott would have felt that the world created in "Soldier" was not
grand enough, considering the movies he's made, and Dick would probably still
be irritated that "Bladerunner" went so far away from his book "Do Androids
Dream Of Electric Sheep?" that "Soldier" would be too laughable to consider. I
assume that the grunts like Sgt. Todd were precursors to the Roy Batty type
combat androids that would follow. Disposable heroes, sort of. I just think
that it was kind of cool to see a glimpse of more of that universe, however
marginal the presentation might have been.
