Re: Retribution, chapter 5, (spoilers)

I know that for "allowing the story" reasons better-than-life-AI opponents aren't allowed, but man if that wasn't one of the single biggest things Fel did that I disagreed with. The problem with this whole argument is that there is an example of limited computer game style AI swarm droids being use...

Re: Retribution, chapter 5, (spoilers)

IIRC the new Dreamer planet in the Milky Way will be weeks of hyperspace travel from the Confederacy worlds and behind interdictors. Currently only the Kimdori and Karinnes have the ability overcome or bypass the interdictors. The distance, along with hyperspace tracking (that possibly only a couple...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

I thought it had been fairly clear for a while that the Parri might well not have been the only sentient species on their planet.... I think here it is a matter of the degree of intelligence that the oye trees might have. They are certainly demonstrably sentient from their shown interactions with J...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

Yes. I think that this has been speculated on a little before, at least that the oye trees help in some way. Over the last day or so I've kept coming back to the idea of the parallels between the Parri and the oye trees and the Old Karinnes and the CBIMs. As if they very much have built/established ...

Re: Conviction chapter 13

One thing I've suspected about the oye trees from the beginning is that they are doing something very similar to the Kimdori and the CBIMs by preserving useful knowledge and insights from those under their protection.

Re: Conviction chapter 13

The Parri had those oye trees planted at Jason's house and in front of the CBIM facilities for a REASON. You mean other than to provide a nice snack in a shady place? :roll: What kind of hint is that? The red herring here is the singular "reason". I think it's clear they have a number of "reasons".

Re: Conviction chapter 13

I am surprised that the systems around the oracle child weren't fail-deadly. Cutting power and control should be enough to tell the kill devices to activate. Well it's easy to overlook such a thing when from the Benga point of view. In order to capture the Oracle, first you have to reach, land and ...
