You're nuts. Granted, "The Man Who Was Never Born" was an incredible piece of television with Landau's powerful performance and the proto-Terminator plotline, but Lomax's monologue at the end of "O.B.I.T." is one of the finest scenes in the whole series! Total Cold War scifi paranoia!

Ironically, I usually enjoy a good courtroom drama, which OBIT basically was despite not taking place in a courtroom. But this one seemed to drag a little bit and the episode basically has a built in spoiler.. you KNOW Lomax is the monster from the get go, so his reveal and subsequent rant seemed rather anti-climactic to me.
