The asteroid ship was probably a generation ship. They used superglue and concrete to weld the pieces together so they wouldn't crumble. (Not totally serious about the superglue...)  And maybe it used...

Let's leave it here.  My original idea for this was, what if there was a terrestrial planet which looked like a Jovian, and vice versa?  I was deciding which solar system would have this, came upon Th...

I was working on this off and on, it hard because the data is uncertain, and the nomenclatures were confusing. This is confusing because Theta-1 is called Theta B and Theta-2 is called Theta A. And ...

I'm sorry, you're right, it wouldn't be that interesting to list all the constellations Bentharis overlaps with (for example.) But having those Greek letter names doesn't seem very logical in the fir...

I wasn't suggesting the fictional constellations would be *entirely* within one real constellation, just one or a few of the brighter stars.  I hadn't gotten around to figuring out which polities migh...

Post: RE: Constellations List

Some of the articles on these stars *did* already indicate which real constellations the imaginary stars were in.  So somebody was already doing that.  And it would be of interest for readers of the E...

Um, I was asking more than one thing, did you mean I shouldn't try to equate imaginary stars with real stars? I'm fine with that. I'd still like to add in other details for the various constellation...

If we have a separate article on the constellations, it seems logical to include a list of the 88 we use, and the extra extinct constellations.   I could suggest origins and meanings of the new ones. ...

The first launches were in 85 A.T. (2055 c.e.) Why is A.T. capitalized and c.e. isn't?  It should be consistent.  I think "at" and "ce" is usual in the EG.  EG is also capitalized.  How do we know wh...
