Philip finally closed the files and sat back, thinking.

Anomalies. Dinosaurs. Rips in time and space. It all sounded like science fiction. But then, that’s what he had spent his life doing – turning science fiction into science fact.

It was a shame that the ARC had lost so many brilliant scientific minds over the years. It seemed that in the latter stages of the project there had been barely any research going on. They were simply reacting to threats, and dealing with them.

Such a waste. And such an opportunity.

He reopened the files, his mind already whirling with ideas.

When you put it like this, all his plans seem sort of reasonable...
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 11th, 2012 06:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
At least he actually seemed to be doing some research into the anomalies, which was something that didn't seem to have happened since series 1!

Nice look at Philip and how he thinks. Shame it all went wrong.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 11th, 2012 06:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Yes, he had such good ideas, but such a bad way of going about achieving them.

"They were simply reacting to threats, and dealing with them. Such a waste. And such an opportunity."

I never thought I would say this, but I think Philip is right there.

Good look at Philip's thoughts.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 11th, 2012 06:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
He is right! It always annoyed me that they never seemed to be doing any serious research into what the anomalies actually were, and what was causing them.

Cutter would be proud. (about the "studying, not just reacting")

bravo!!
