Re: Retribution, chapter 1, (spoilers)

Could be that the plan is to destroy the system no matter what, with some group planning to swoop in and pick up the Oracles before it happens.

Re: Chapter 26

Yeah...that's not really how that works. Mutually Assured Destruction is contingent on rational actors who will hesitate to press the button unless needed. While the Dragons felt pushed into a corner, a lot of the people who kind of sit on those kind of committees might disagree. The hurricane thing...

Re: Chapter 26

Holy shit, they just effectively knocked out China. Something like that...there's going to be people sitting up all around the world at that little display. For all that it was face saving, the Chinese President was absolutely right, there are going to be people around the world, ESPECIALLY in the U...

Re: Earth Bond chapter 25, [SPOILERS]

One thing I'm kind of scratching my head about was the end, when we learned that he could fly and then asks the elders to craft a device to stop him doing so...that kind of threw me. His reasons is kind of 'if i can't do it, I won't experiment and blow it open' is sound if a bit weird but I still ha...

Re: Retribution, potential ideas

My point about the moral code was telling the Consortium about them, because the Consortium has shown that they will throw their ethics out the window in the name of survival (aka the attack on Karis) and so would like to use the Dreamers themselves...however the consortium showing up to the Dreamer...

Re: Retribution, potential ideas

One thing to think of, though it doesn't really fly with Jason's plan of making the Dreamers think they are going to die, and its definitely against Jason's morals is simply....inform the Consortium of the dreamers existence. IIRC from I think it was Unification, when we first got info on the situat...

Re: Conviction Chapter 14

Well, advanced enough psionics ignores the intervening 3-D space so I would expect armor wouldn't be much help. I'm not sure if internal body manipulation (like causing a stroke or heart attack) is TK or not but I also don't see that it matters. A previous story mentioned that it was. Jason thinks ...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

I wonder how aggressive the Faey military acts in getting their hands on especially strong Faey for them to be successful enough to gather so many of them. Any Faey house should have at least an internal policy of finding those strong ones among the populations of the worlds they control as early a...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

It might very well have been his principles but even before Jason knew much of the history of the Kahrines he was horrified to find out that there was genetic modification in his thousand year old Faey ancestor...and Myleena was just as horrified. Now to be fair its a bit of a shock but the degree j...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

The brain is part of the body and the known afflictions that come with age target the brain as well. I don't think there is a reason why the mind shouldn't stay fit and healthy if the body keeps being healthy no matter the age. Although I can see that watching friends and family dying before your e...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

Well the Faey obsession with 'natural' probably has a lot to do with keeping things like anti-aging drugs or regimes going on...but its a very valid point. As medicine improves, people begin to live longer and longer and eventually what's going to crap out first is not going to be the body...but the...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

There should be a last book, or at least the last chapter of Benediction entitled 'vacation' because after saving earth and then the galaxy and then ANOTHER galaxy...Jason desperately needs to go sit on his beach and relax. :)

Re: Conviction chapter 13

If any remembers Babylon 5, in that show Telepaths were introduced into humanity and a few other races by the Vorlon's, so it MIGHT be a introduced talent from these super advanced giants...but we have no evidence about that. We don't really understand psychic power at all really but its a LOT broad...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

So, with no knowledge of Fel's plans what so ever, here is my estimation about the main thrust of each of those books. Retribution: The Confederation, or at least the Karines and the Kimdori strike back at the Consortium and the Syndicate for invading the Milky Way. Revolution: I think this book wou...

Re: Conviction Chapter 12 {Spoilers}

The Faey took a divergent path to the one humanity took if I remember Fel's statement correctly. Human's 'naturally' don't have telepathic powers but the difference between Faey and Human's is very small, and they ARE receptive to carrying the genes that express talent. I'm not sure that human's wil...
