Pandora was from avatar... it's probably a coincidences :-)
That's exactly my point - this book was released some 18 years before Avatar
, so the fact it talks about a colonised planet named Pandora is a neat coincidence
I'm curious about Pandora, has it had any significance in the Alien franchise? I don't remember hearing about a planet called Pandora.
Doubt it's ever appeared outside of this book/game.
