The idea of wikis, like the Ultronomicon, is that many people work on it, each making it a little bit better. We don't expect contributions to be perfect, and people need no prior experience to contribute.
And frankly, I think you've got some way to go yourself too.

OK, I didn't really mean it. It just skipped from my fingertips in an instant.

Oops, and I forgot to mention - I wouldn't have said that if I were perfect. Injuries always apply to the person who utters them.

If you guys are talking about Valaggar's beat-down of my theories, that's also another part of Wikis.  Erronious ideas are defeated.

I had totally forgotten that the Milieu and Dnyarri spanned the whole thing.  Silly me.  Wait a sec -- wouldn't they have little problem finding out where the Precursors went?  Maybe they did, and now I'm just being silly again.

I once again apologize.
Sorry, I'm the silly, stupid, infatuate, craven etc. one.
The Melnorme say that the Sentient Milieu only spanned 500 light-years (and could be traversed in a month), and included the membership of a hundred worlds. Small. We don't know how many HyperSpace distance units a light-year is, but it shouldn't be too much.

In any case, it didn't span the entire galaxy, for sure. Just a small section.

I guess that the Ur-Quan homewolrd and us are at opposite edges of Milieu space.  I wonder just where the Mael-Num world is/was.  The Melnorme do say that they're new to this region.

But the Taalo homeworld is right here. Hmm.

Also, the galaxy is a hypertaco.

Yes, that's what Gaeamil and I say, too - that the Milieu had to be near, because it was small and because the Taalo homeworld is also here.

The HyperSpace galaxy does not have to have the same shape as the TrueSpace one - the correspondence is not linear.
In fact, it is very probable that the shape differs greatly. After all, the HS galaxy is flat.
