Re: Science Fiction Trivia

From The Black Hole, those 'moonbuggies' on rails ? :) #4 "The Stone", a 290km-long (and then some …) asteroid ship in Greg Bear’s Eon . Internal travel requires aircraft (and "tuberiders", when things start to get stretched). #5 All yours big D! P.S. Two other examples I had in mind were Excalibur...

Roger that!

Another "fives": big space ships that needed shuttling inside their hulls. Stations (as opposed to ships) and elevators (inside ships) don't count.

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

For the avoidance of doubt this means at least twice the height and/or mass of an adult human being, and by "intelligent" I mean able to hold conversations, discuss abstract ideas, etc. Bonus points if they're technolog...
