So Mazer Rackham pulled the ol' "Randy Quaid in Independence Day" maneuver, huh? Hey, it may not be original, but if it works, it works.

I guess I'm remembering it wrong (it has been a while since I last read the book), but I thought Mazer figured out the thing about hive queens and figured out tactics to beat the buggers based on that. He was a commander/strategist, not a fighter pilot, right?

Of course, that video edit could just be part of the 'Mazer Rackham died for your sins'-type propaganda everybody gets fed. Maybe that's the point.
