Suisei no Gargantia -- ep 7

So it turns out that a "whale squid" is genetically identical to a "Hideauze", and Ledo's war has come to the Earth. Maybe.

What in hell is a combat mech doing with genetic analysis equipment, anyway? And the comfortable feeling I had with this series just got tossed in a basket. Maybe it'll be back, maybe not.

1 If the mech's enemies use bio warfare, having onboard analysis gear isn't totally irrational.

2 Just mostly irrational. (The M1 Abrams doesn't carry such things...)

3 Did I miss the battlefield use of biowar weaponry?  It doesn't have analysis gear onboard, but it does have a NBC defensive system built

4 I got the feeling that Chamber is a mass produced unit, which has scouting capabilities.  It seems a little odd, but it's not something that takes too much hand waving to believe.  Though it does seem a little strange.

5 *sigh* Wrong button.

...it DOES have NBC protective systems built in, just in case.  Since we don't seem to be facing biowar attacks, and it's not like analysis gear is exactly small to date, the Abrams doesn't need to carry it.

6 Not totally beyond the pale, really. Can it travel through space? Can it land on a planet? If so, something onboard better be able to tell the pilot if he can breathe the air, drink the water, and metabolize the flora and fauna... and the last one of those three takes a pretty sophisticated sensor suite.

7 I haven't seen anything past the first episode yet (except the bountiful cheesecake...), but given the capabilities that Chamber displays there, I'm not surprised he's capable of genetic analysis. It's got to be easier than including a self-contained cold-sleep facility with hypnotic indoctrination capability.

8 I suppose you could hand-wave
