I'm glad you liked my quest. I think we should start of with the following words:BEWARE THE REST OF THIS DISCUSSION IS A COMPLETE SPOILER FOR THE QUEST "The Runners".
Now, that being said, let us discuss the higher things in life, namely, movie quotes and science fiction. For the Commander Jameson character, you need only look to the left at my Avatar (Elite, amazing game! see Other 'Classic' Space Exploration Games
Now as for the "Insys" you have me confused. I'm afraid I don't really follow, unless I misspelled something in my quest?
The first verse of the Poem is by William Blake, and used in the game Blade Runner, but also in the book "The Stars my Destination" (aka. "Tiger! Tiger!") by Alfred Bester, written in 1956 about the Nomad Gully Foyle who spends some time in the asteroid belts. The second verse is only from that book, and written by the author. I thought it fitting since in that book the author uses ASCII-art! Well, almost, towards the end he has the lines attacking you from the page in a very psychedelic way, and the lines spiral and wiggle all over the pages, and form stars and whatnot. It is a fantastic book, definitely recommended, unfortunately Alfred Bester only wrote two successful/good science fiction books, the other being "The Demolished man".
But "The Nomad" could be from Star Trek as well, good catch there Quaker2k9.
Now Enoch Wallace is a very tricky one. It's from the 1964 Hugo award winning book "Way Station" by Clifford D. Simak. The book is highly recommended. It's a very nice Space Opera novel, and part of the story is about Enoch who has been alone for a century and finally becomes friend with his neighbor. (not J.F. Sebastian though...). (Don't worry, I haven't spoiled the story of the book in any way)
Well, Rutger Hauer is also from Blade Runner, but from real life, since he actually played Roy Batty. But in the quest I have him as a henchman, perhaps a pirate fighting the good cause? Well, I needed two guys for the Player and Roy to shoot at, so I put Pris and Rutger on the job.
As for Sergeant Smith, who will jump you if you don't accept to kill Zhora, he is who ever you want it to be.
hmmm, perhaps this thread should be moved to the actual discussion of the quest?http://
