Super advanced aliens that don't grasp the concept that if you have 100% air superiority + attack aircraft with IR detection capability, you should BLOW UP THEIR BASES.
It's sad that I find myself rooting for the aliens, as the human characters are just too annoying. At least we don't get the heavy handed history lesson each and every episode. I get the analogy, it's like the Revolutionary War! But did they really have to call the new government, the "Continental Congress"?!
