Just sayin with the drones we have now I don't know why we would need to put people in space fighters, but there they are in just about every space scifi movie defying future logic. In fact I'd say humans are the weakest link in space travel and exploration, but lets have them dog fight it out in space because that's resources well spent. On a related note, I'm going to rewatch Event Horizon. I imagine it's what a Trump lead space expedition would result in. "Nobody knew how destructive a portal to Hell would be."
