Talking Point for the week 
If you could make one change, to one piece of famous/cult Sci Fi, what would it be?
Greetings friends in Obscurity!
A few obscure things for your consideration -
On the topic of pricing models for MMO's, at this point I feel Guild Wars 2 has close to the perfect structure in my mind. If you harken back to season 4, you may remember how i feel about monthly subs.
On the topic of what change i would make to a Sci-Fi property there is but one answer - BRING BACK FIREFLY!!!!!
Cheers!
Your friend, Rilandune
