And then thinking about the logic of the episode makes me cringe. Ok, the guy has PST- for 10 years? Has he been thinking he's King Arthur the whole time? If so, he's galavanting about the galaxy picking fights with people and ranting like a lunatic and nobody stops or kills him or puts him away? Or did it just suddenly pop up recently. Can that happen?

And then he recognises Marcus' British accent, which of course sounds nothing like a British accent would have in King Arthur's time. So the guy is an obsessed Arthur fan but wouldn't know that?
With how crazy and screwy the human mind reacts, I'd say it's quite possible that his PTSD flared up recently causing the falling further into the disorder and the taking on of the Arthur persona. As for the accent, like the guy would know what a British accent sounded like in King Arthur's time anyway in order to be able to recognize it. His brain just adapted everything in the real word to fit his King Arthur persona, including the way he heard people speak.
