The writers did seem to have a problem in the latter parts of the show with the military idea.

One of the biggest boobs in my opinion was not having Becker show any sign of trying to stop Cutter in 3.03. Obviously, it would have been hard to fit in alongside Jenny's 'don't go' moment, but his original purpose at the ARC was to stick to Cutter like glue whatever Cutter said, and that was the one thing he never seemed to do!

Yes, the whole thing with Cutter in 3.3 was badly handled. It would have made more sense if they could have shown that Becker was obviously unable to go after him for some reason - either he was injured, or he was heavily involved with something else that was important, such as overseeing getting other survivors out of the building.

The writers are far too reliant on having Becker conveniently vanish for no reason when they want the civilain scientists to be doing the dangerous stuff, unfortunately.
