It seems clear from the short-lived discussion sponsored by this department that our primary research goals should be towards the development of Mechanized Infantry and Modern Armor. While this greatly narrows the scope of our research, there are a few possible permutations that we can employ towards the achievement of those goals. Key Techs: Ecology (260) - prerequisite for Synthetic Fibers - allows for Mass Transit to help curb pollution. Computers (260) - allows for production of Mechanized Infantry. Synthetic Fibers (280) - allows for production of Modern Armor. Please consider the options presented and vote for your choice for the best path on which to set our scientists. This poll will remain open until the next turn chat. Quorum for this poll will be 10 votes and a super-plurality (ie. 2-1) in favor of a single option. If these criteria are not met, then the Science Department will use this poll in an informational sense when establishing our queue.
