[a lot of deep and deeper subtext on today's page one thinks]

Technology is all very fine, but if your goal is conserving Homo Sapiens, a deep relatively clean gene pool is paramount!*
If all can combine to remove the rottenest apple from the barrel, things will be much more optimal.

*( 22 million vs 6 million over half of which are android!
I'm a bit surprised Centcomm is willing escalate this situation as much as has happened so far.
Does New Troy Intel know about Decimus's Contingency Option?)
(Kind of hope so.)

That kinda reminds me, I sorta do have hopes that their goals of having the two cities become allies actually work out, for the simple reasoning that both cities have their strengths and their weaknesses, and if they were allowed to interact with each other, then the strengths of both would increase and the weaknesses of both would decrease--

Such as, say, the fertility problem in New Troy.

Also, how the two seem to have gone in opposite paths--bio-augmentation versus cybernetic augmentation; the two are (probably) roughly equivalent, but having them both would (likely) be even better. ;)

I find it odd that the respectable AIs don't have a more active intel-op in place in Nova Roma.*
One might think they would want access to rescue Aeneas.
Perhaps Centcomm had previously been too caught up in tracking NaCl smuglers...

*( I mean, TR has an agent in deep cover right in the heart of the action. Really!)

Centcomm 3rd Dec 2012, 1:17 AM edit delete reply

I guess we will find out .. :D things are not always as they seem and sometimes.. they exactly are.

Im almost afraid to see what Kali intends to do in order to distract his royal insaness. His brain doesn't work right as it is....and Kali is likely to think up something l would need to make a sanity check against!
Centcomm 3rd Dec 2012, 1:18 AM edit delete reply

oh yes it willl be ... horrorifying .. reruns of gilligans island..
Rashala 2nd Dec 2012, 11:53 PM edit delete reply

Kali is still.......unsettleign but thats part of her charm....shame we can' ACCIDENTALLY have deci si ton a toilet and have its flush changed to Reactor vent ing
Centcomm 3rd Dec 2012, 1:19 AM edit delete reply

:D Maxus is a pretty decent guy once you get around the whole 7'6" and built like a tank..

just a note Kali is 5'10" and currently 6'2" in the boots shes wearing..

For some reason,

"Looming and Overhanging!!!"

Go Vote

The Lethal Weapon option, Rash? (I forget which movie the toilet bomb was in)
Death2Bravo 3rd Dec 2012, 2:59 AM edit delete reply

Doesn't matter if Maxus was 5'8" and built like a round, shave-needing Corsican artilleryman he's still one sharp cookie and that is what matters.

heheh - oh it gets better..

I just adore Acantha and Lynn's friendship, which has now turned into a sisterhood practically. I want to hug them both.
Centcomm 3rd Dec 2012, 9:42 AM edit delete reply

They could use hugs... Lynn might whine about a hug .. but she would get used to it! XD
Hornet 3rd Dec 2012, 10:40 AM edit delete reply
Ohoh I know, Kali's going to give him a Rubics Cube, maybe one based on a D20 with each side comprised of 20 sections???
Think that would keep him occupied?
Centcomm 3rd Dec 2012, 12:29 PM edit delete reply

It might till he took a pistol to it .. Deck has little patiences for puzzles.. Kali has a few tricks that will work hopfully :D

IMNeverHO Unfortunately I don't think Tokyo Rose has a merged Nova Roma and New Troy in her sights. Also I would think that Big Blue as the ultimate successor to IBM and all their corporate greed and control, is probably interested in it either. I really think they both want Aeneas to be "grateful" ie slaved to one of them so they can further their own agendas against the other three, and at this point an insane Decimus in control is in either of their best interests so for Lynn Taylor to end up dead or worse forced in body slavery in a brothel would ensure the complete enmity of New Troy. However we can't forger the Lunar Rangers who are in the wastelands, Luna is not about to forget Terra for better or worse.
Centcomm 3rd Dec 2012, 5:57 PM edit delete reply

is that "is" or "Isnt" in the best intrests- just wondering. them finding Lynn Dead would simplify some matters.. slavery would be much worse. Luna ( as far as anyone knows has a "hands off" Policy to Terra. they will gladly pass notes / messages ect and charge the bajeeus out of both partys. but they will do there best to stay out of any shooting or such.

Hmm ... good thing CentComm didn't agree to Ramesy's original scorched-earth proposal for Lynn's rescue. That might have ... complicated ... things a bit, eh?
Centcomm 3rd Dec 2012, 5:54 PM edit delete reply

just a weeee bit... baby and bathwater both tossed please. :D
cattservant 3rd Dec 2012, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

Shaken, not stirred...
That's what preferred!
LooeyQ 4th Dec 2012, 8:35 AM edit delete reply

Lynn almost feels like a mother figure, or older sister!
Centcomm 4th Dec 2012, 8:51 AM edit delete reply

You might not be far off. Acantha is in a very vunerable state of mind and Lynn just happens to be offering the strong support she needs ( even though Lynn is pretty scared too.. )
antrik 9th May 2017, 1:00 AM edit delete reply
Ah, the politicos already plotting how to use the friendship to their advantage... ;-)
