    He said Super Specialists. Not Great People. Do the Super Specialists keep producing the bonuses for the enemy city when taken over?

    Well, I just confirmed in the World Builder that if you have, say 3 super specialists in the city and it gets taken over and then you acquire it again, the super specialists disapear.

    I haven't tested whether you get super specialists when you take over a city, but considering you loose them if you loose the city, it's a fair bet that you will not get them when taking over someone elses super specialist city.
