I think it's clear by now that we can easily justify drop ships by invoking science fiction.

Every technology is science fiction until it's fielded.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

Operation Rösselsprung (Knight's move), airborne raid on Drvar in 1944 in order to kill Josip Broz Tito should be examined in detail before any orbital dropship concept is put on paper.
