Show Notes

International Space Station

Contemporary space station size comparisons. ISS transformation over time.

Alien life

Bipedalism. Bilateral symmetry. The assumption of humanoid structure in the “world.” Duck-billed Ferengi information brokers and neurological RAID modes.

Alpha Station

Critical mass.” Vital stats. Population, demographics. Modular growth over time. Racial job specialization.

Alpha Station location and travel

FTL(?) via “exospace.” The plan to exit the solar system. The issues re planetary orbits when you build a brand new moon around earth with tons and tons of foreign (to the solar system) mass. Languages! 5,000+ languages are spoken on the station, not even including “computer languages.”

Mül and the Pearls

Beach-dwelling N’avi (with no tails). Math and science. Intellectual ability and exaptation of base rational abilities to science and math.

Space battles

Should they happen so near planets? Travel and planned space battle. Don’t fight on a planet because you’re vulnerable to Christopher’s favorite: the Brannigan maneuver.

Zap Brannigan style

VR/Ar layered “dimensions”

Dimensions schmimensions; Big Market was the VR/AR experience that we should wish for/expect in our lifetimes. Objective interaction and co-interaction.
