Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: In the spirit of all classic sci-fi, it's not about the future, it's about the present. I agree, it's not the tightest writing I've seen even in an indie project, but you totally missed that the entire point of the story is that given the choice between guns and butter, the human race picks guns nine times out of ten. It's pointing out that if we put the same effort into science that we put into killing one another, we could accomplish great things. The story isn't about spaceships full of nukes orbiting Jupiter, it's about overbudget contemporary weapons programs and an under-funded space sciences program.Or are you too left-brained to comprehend allegory?
