Wow, there are a lot more of them than I thought. I'll see about compacting some of the more similar ones.

That seems like a good place for this.

When you enter a system inhabited by an alien race in SCO, a variation on that race's theme music plays in the interplanetary screen instead of the normal interplanetary music. Volasaurus' new tracks were obviously inspired by that.

Or… like… any game since Mega Man?

If you want them to be landmarks, less might be more. Also, you could do more with star color.

I like less nebula.

Now the benchmark is whether the Daktaklakpak are working correctly.

ummmmm. What?

I got one of my Syreen names in Peeru from that book.

What's that?

The name I used was Trixia. She was one of the Syreen who needed her ship repaired.

Hah, that's clever!  Was it a good read overall?

It was odd. Several large parts were really, really dark, and others seemed a little bit under-explained. The good parts were really good. Lots of good ideas, and IIRC some good characters (it's been a while).

If GotP is published and Stardock isn't on the attack anymore, I might give SC:O a try. I wouldn't even need them to have reached that point willingly.

meh. (and not the grand kind of meh)

Jump scares (of which this would be a weak one) are less useful in this regard than touring an old folks' home.

I'm reminded of a bit in A Deepness in the Sky - you can tell if a populated planet used to have a more advanced civilization by looking at the status of its archaeologists. If they're rich, rockstars, a focus of intense funding… then it had an ancient advanced civilization.

HERE. Not even vaguely close. They only advantage that world has is the possibility of resurrection, and as far as I can tell it's not widely available and not very good even when it is.

Speculative fiction (fantasy or science fiction) is at its best when it sets up interesting hypotheticals and then explores the consequences. If these are socially relevant hypotheticals, all the better. It doesn't need to be a literal prediction, nor does it need to be a science lesson.

The world of GoT is hellish; I don't think it makes the time seem more appealing. What it does have is emotional intensity due to all the terrible stuff that's happening.

Wait, on what basis are P&F trying to stop sale of SCO? I thought the infringing stuff was gone.
