Had to catch up via transcript so I could be ready for the next installment but all I could think is that the AI is partially responsible for the dead body.

I mean… why do people always assume the computer is somehow neutral? One of the classic sci-fi tropes is technology turning against humankind. However, in this case, it’s quite possible that PErsephone simply planted a concern or seed of doubt in someone’s head.

The aggression detection thing really set off a few flags for me. It almost sounds like a means of controlling the crew and/or a possible justification for extermination/putting someone forcibly to sleep.
