Dave Hinkle just posted part 1 of a new BE blog called "Systematic Destiny: http://www.civilization.com/en/news/2015-04-systematic-destiny-part-1/ It is a nice read but it is basically "fanfic" as far as I can tell. Basically, the blog is about what Firaxis learned when talking to a real NASA scientist about the science behind the BE universe, but told in a fiction setting. Not to be rude but I am not really sure what the point is. Is it just to gin up interest in the game or is it leading up to an announcement of the "2.0" version? Personally, I'd much prefer some news on what to expect from the "2.0" version or future patches.
