And you know the point values for the previous missions how, exactly? Take the Greenonion aliens. Nishi got what, four points for that? If he'd taken the kid himself he probably would have gotten another one at most. I'm not sure what the timing between missions is like, but it takes a very long time to earn a hundred points like that. He said it was low, so let's double it—assume he gets eight points every mission. That means he'd have had to go on roughly ten missions before the first one we see, and that's assuming he always takes down the boss. At a rate of one mission per month, that's nearly a year right there.

We know that he only has 90 points. Therefore, the correct conclusion is which of the following?
A) He sucks at life
B) The bosses are worth almost nothing
Hint: the answer is not A.
Failure: when your best just isn't good enough.
