Proof-reading EG
I've adjusted Espen Anderson's Far Edge civilisation article slightly, to bring it closer to canon.

Changes I've made; I've moved Cromwell's birthdate to 165AT, and altered the stage at which He reached the Fourth Toposophic to much later in the article. It is my contention that archailects rarely, if ever, move their physical substrate from star to star.

The Best Friend article has had a complete makeover, without, I hope, losing sight too much of Michael Beck's original idea.

Looks good to me.

So Far I've added links to the articles on Avengium's list as far as Beneficience; I've been making small tweaks to the articles along the way to make sure they are canon-compliant and use up-to-date terms where necessary.

The Future isn't here yet- but don't worry - it will be.

I've finally finished adding links to all the articles mentioned by Avengium (except the EMP, as mentioned earlier).
I've also created an article about the Burdikeer (archailect of the Seams), using material originally contributed by Michael Boncher.

I've got a reasonable idea where to place these worlds; the Seams are between empires, and Alpha Star at least is on the Keter Negentropic border. I think that some other important Seams are located n the Metasoft Dominion Border, and I'll add this to the descriptions in due course.

In Burdikeer:

Not technically a typo, but, from The Omicron Hygeras Object:

http://www.orionsarm.com/eg-article/4a59d19f81fed

"The object is also described as 30 trillion Yhhanak'ukul'lanjh standard years old (multiply by 9.6 for Terragen Standard Years) and identified as a Trans-dimensional construct from another universe (which is further defined in Yhhanak'ukul'lanjh terms that have no clear Anglic equivalent). Where the gas-giant aliens got such information is unknown, and there is no way to confirm such supernatural speculation through any Terragen technology or research. The nature of the effects of this object do suggest that supernatural origin not be dismissed outright."

I think using the term supernatural causes confusion and conflicts with OA's hard science focus. Also, do we use the word "aliens" in OA? (Plus the word "trans-dimensional" is wrongly capitalized.) I would suggest changing it to this:

"The object is also described as 30 trillion Yhhanak'ukul'lanjh standard years old (multiply by 9.6 for Terragen Standard Years) and identified as a trans-dimensional construct from another universe (which is further defined in Yhhanak'ukul'lanjh terms that have no clear Anglic equivalent). Where the gas-giant civilization got such information is unknown, and there is no way to confirm it through any Terragen technology or research. The nature of the effects of this object do suggest that extra-universal origin not be dismissed outright."

Date is wrong in the EG and/ or timeline.

The first unmanned mission to Tau Ceti was the launch of a mass-beam-propelled, unmanned probe, named the Giordano Bruno, launched in 265 a.t.

195 - The laser-propelled, unmanned robot probe, the Giordano Bruno, is launched towards Tau Ceti.
