  • I remember a writer involved in a Sci-Fi was show was once asked about the speed that a certain fighter type ship was capable of, to which he replied something along the lines of "at the speed of the plot".

    I know how important it is to provide a consistent universe for RPGs, but in general I agree with the above quote, in this case, rules shouldn't get in the way of the story you're are trying to tell.

    BTW, Which system are you using?
    • I started using d20, but I found that it didn't suit the game. Eventually we switched to the Storyteller System, d10, with some minor changes.

  • If you're wondering how he eats or breathes
    or other science facts (la-la-la)
    Remember it's just a TV show
    You should really just relax
  • I've heard references to a "bible" in the Battlestar Galactica podcasts Ron Moore does, and it sounds like a compendium of background info for the writers and cast to use.

    I'd assume any long-running TV show that has any concern for consistency must have such a thing. The BSG folks are _very_ concerned about internal consistency in the show, so they've gotta have such a thing, but even Trek wasn't totally random.

    A wiki would be a great tool for this. Maybe Socialtext needs to start pitching to TV studios ;)
  • From Enterprise s3e19, Damage, Enterprise must reach a rendezvous 4 ly away. T'Pol claims that they need Warp 3 to make it there in 3 days. Four light years is about 1460 light days. Travelling 1460 light days in 3 days requires travelling at 486c. I guess Warp 3 is faster than Warp 4!
