Happy birthday … err, ‘incept date’ to Roy Batty
Forget that Back to the Future anniversary in 2015! Today is officially the “incept date” for Roy Batty, model number N6MAA10816, from the movie Blade Runner. According to all the reliable Internet sources, our favorite the Nexus 6 replicant was "born" on Jan. 8, 2016.
Roy now has just four years to experience attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and watch C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. After that, all those moments will be lost, in time, just like … tears … in the rain.
