Starships Unlimited use similar mechanics than Master of Orion, I liked this game.

X Series if jump gates count.

Space Empires if permanent warp points fit into your rule.

All of Norby's three work - I can't seem to find a description of how interstellar travel works in Starbound, but Norby took the total past five anyway, so the ball is in his court.

The one I was expecting someone to get was the board game Starfire, since David Weber wrote some of it and has collaborated on novelisations.

Then name (at least) one fighter-class ship in five different SF universes. The ship type must be named somehow, not just "heavy fighter" or so. Please also provide a link for each ship which demonstrate it.

I think you've missed Malacandra's Sidewinder, Norby - he was being too modest.

Malacandra told me in pm that the above message is just a hint for others, so Cody sent in the fifth valid ship!
I accepted the link in Malacandra's signature as a reference.

Over to Cody!

:lol:

The Sidewinder is a core Elite / Oolite ship and I'd never claim that for my own. But the original novel Sidewinder Precision Pro introduced a couple of new ships, the Claymore and the Purdy. (There are one or two others introduced in The Russian Creed too.)

What? I've been stitched up, good and proper! I blame tactical answering! <grins> I was thinking of Frogstar Fighters, but were they actual fighter ships as well as mechs?


Anyway... which author took the title of a hummed song in another author's novel and turned it into a short story?

That sounds like it could be Robert Heinlein's 1947 short story "The Green Hills of Earth", which is also the name of a tune hummed by a character in C. L. Moore's 1933 short story "Shambleau".

Aye, 'twas Heinlein!

We pray for one last landing
On the globe that gave us birth
Let us rest our eyes on the fleecy skies
And the cool, green hills of Earth


Over to you, sir!

Okay then …

If we're lucky, it's the Doctor; if we're unlucky, it's Nyarlathotep. I will just point out that this story appeared on the same day as news broke about the UK government stockpiling food, and leave you to draw your own conclusions. On the wall of your bunker. In blood.

With this in mind, give five SF novels/short stories where an archaeological discovery is an important part of the plot (the archaeological discovery doesn't have to be on Earth, by the way).
