I know that some people here are disappointed, but I'm really enjoying this game. One of the things I'm getting a kick out of is the sci-fi and future fiction references peppered around the place. For example: Hyperconductors The quote says "Resistance, in regards to electrical conductivity is undesirable. In regards to hyperconductivity, it is futile." I take that as a Borg (Star Trek) easter egg. Ultrasonic fences When the building quest pops up for this one, one of the choices is to "reverse the polarity" - I take this to be a reference to a favourite saying of the Third Doctor as played by Jon Pertwee. Sandworm A Dune reference? Soma Distillery This is a reference to Aldous Huxley's book, Brave New World. Soma was a drug freely available to the population to keep them docile and content: "..there is always soma, delicious soma, half a gramme for a half-holiday, a gramme for a week-end, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon..." There are also plenty of references to Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri as well: the Human Hive, the Crawler, boreholes, the Drone Sphere. There must be plenty more out there. Has anyone seen any others?
