Re: EpDis: Crusade: The Needs Of Earth

I liked this lesson because it tells you so much about Matheson.

in the Well of Forever, we learn that he had been misusing his powers in some minor way (although the psi cop type was obviously trumping up the charges).

In this episode we learn why he does it (and if you look back at some things... like his "coincidental" discussion with Galen in TPoS), you can see an example.

Basically Matheson sees his power as a gift that he genuinely tries to help people with. He will poke around in peoples minds sometimes... but only because he genuinely wants to help them.

From a personal bias, I also liked M\atheson's theological contemplation in his log towards the end.
We live for The One, we die for The One

"We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."
