Well, that's not as horrible as it could be.

Immortality is great, in theory, but overcrowding is bad enough without people dying off even SLOWER.

Hopefully one day we'll just stop reproducing because we'll be mostly machine.

Not sure overcrowding is an issue for a while  yet. Most of America is empty apart from cities, Australia is virtually unexplored and Africa is going to be mostly empty due to the Aids problems?
An Awful lot of people believe a lot of very strange things indeed for no valid reason I can see. They can`t all be right but it is quite likely they all can be very wrong.

Ooh. Mix this with the Kuratas robot DarkLloyn posted recently, and we have Space Marine Dreadnaughts.

It was okay. Great premise slow delivery, and I'm one that like lots of expansion in my shows. But it ties up and picks up towards the end. Over all a good watch it could have been one or two episodes shorter.

Is anyone else strangely excited/worried/exuberant over this whole transhumanism thing we are moving towards?

It makes space exploration via sub-luminal speeds a very real possibility.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

As long as we could get the Mind/machine transfer down (like Rigging) and then leave a trail of repeater satellites behind whatever ships we send out, I would say yeah lets do that.
