      No...O'Brian's comments never made any sense to me. I have always felt
      that it was more of a star not liking when anything took the focus off him
      even for a second.

      The only good argument I can see about it is how it makes it more difficult
      to write for because the scanner's abilities remove many of the typical
      situations that happen to the hero, like being jumped from behind. Just
      like the first thing you have to do is take away their communicators...or
      have the ship be paralyzed.
