Oh it's not been that bad. I had one minor character in a book, and one spaceship in a book (with just a mention or two in the other two).  :laugh:

Just listened! I believe the comic with the pheromone cloak was Harvest/Hive and they used it to sneak through the hive to steal that sweet jelly. Hicks said Stronghold which also has a synthetic alien but I don’t think it had the pheromones in it although I don’t remember much from that comic except Jeri the cigar smoking alien lol.

Edit: I checked and Stronghold also uses the pheromone collars (although they mention the scientist from Harvest that created it) so good call out Hicks!

Dumb little observation that I just wanted to throw out:

I think Hoenikker being a wimp in the book is meant to be the beginning of an arc - an arc that's concluded with

in the final mission of the first campaign of the game.
Might want to point out that that's a spoiler for the game, not the book. Since we're in the literature section and I've read the book I clicked the spoiler and got spoiled, because I haven't played the game.

You didn't miss much, while the story is decent, the narrative of the game is very very bare bones.

I figured leaving “in the final mission of the first campaign of the game.” outside of the spoiler would serve that purpose.

True, but I read through in order, and that wasn't until after the spoiler. Maybe not a big spoiler, but still.

I thought the game tied really nicely with the book, with Monica and all. Hopefully we get to explore Pala station as well.

I just wish Monica had been the focus of the book to be honest. I found there was just too much stuff going on, without the time for anything to really get the time it deserved. I would have loved a better focus on her, the personal conflict with Hoenikker in particular rather than the one chapter it got. She really was the

Yeah, it's a spoiler for something in the game.

Just means that

But your words outside the spoiler tag say...
"She really was the ***** in

Sidenote: Is there something wrong with me that I'm finding this conversation very entertaining?  ;D
