    Worldbuilding idea - the edge of survivability

    I assume The prisoner are human while the Captors are some Alien race? Why imprison them at all? Was Politics or Religion on the part of the Captors or Captives some how involved? If the Captors are so much more advanced then why not use an army of AIs? or Genetic Engineered Slave race? or even...

    Worldbuilding idea - the edge of survivability

    I think before just about any one can really contribute on a meaningful level we need more info on the plot. Other then that my only question is how does this Ore get back into space without allowing your prisoners to escape? If they live in a sealed environment that includes some form of...

    I don't know how likely they are to develop but have you considered Methane Clathrate? since it does not appear to need organic masses to form?

    Has Doctor Who Jumped the Shark?

    Has Dr Who jumped the shark... I'd have to say no. at least in my opinion it hasn't. Will it ever, I don't know. One thing many people seem to forget is that DR who is a Children's program (technically Family Horror) in the UK, and holding it the standard of a serious science fiction show is...

    Questions about inhabited moons (or at least one)

    don't worry it seems to have gotten moved. 1. Yes it is Physically possible provided either handwavium mass, or the Moon in question is the size of earth. Either way my research on the topic says the the moon would be tidally locked, since it would likely have to orbit a gas giant. Other wise...

    Obstacles for Life in the Degenerate Era

    I'm by no means an expert. but I think it would come down to Energy almost every time. If humanity and other races have survived into this time period. Then Technology would have a solution to every thing, provided you had enough energy. I think the Big question would be how do these people...

    Call for examples of 'coincidences' in physics

    I don't know if this works for you but Venus's 583.92-day interval between successive close approaches to the Earth is equal to 5.001444 Venusian solar days, making approximately the same face visible from Earth at each close approach. Whether this relationship arose by chance or is the...

    Eden Cronicles, Time to wake up

    Don't I know it Drakkith. Its more a long the lines of being unhappy with the perspective, and balancing the attention I'm giving the characters and the environment.
