* A vignette in the Designer's Notes for ''TranshumanSpace: In The Well'', set during the terraforming of Mars, features a prospector who is paranoid that he will be lured away from his find, and a Martian Ranger trying to convince him the terraforming process is underway. His [[TooDumbToLive last thought]] is "Where did that claim-jacker get all this water?"
