We are stardust
We are golden
We are billion year old carbon

I was like 15 or 16 and they had just finished the first part of Robotech and were doing the "Robotech Masters" storyline.

First time I saw anything about that was in the reviews of Last Battle for the Genesis. Wasn't the worst game but it wasn't great either.

Beta crucis australis is also named Mimosa? Why doesn't our sun have a really cool name? Sol just sounds like my brother-in-law.

Followup: in Elite:Dangerous it goes by the name of Becrux. Haven't made it there, or even started as it's quite a road trip from my place.

/ Becrux of course it is.
