* SpiritualLicensee: Of ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. Ringo and Taylor met, hit it off, and when Ringo mused on the First Contact days, Tayler enthusiastically gave him permission to write that story. Unfortunately, they lost touch and the books fell into CanonDiscontinuity. [[http://schlockmercenary.wikispaces.com/FAQ Taylor still loves them, however.]]

* FridgeLogic: Solar power is NEVER used. For nothing. A serious problem in the second book revolves around Earth being cut off from interstellar fuel. No one mentions solar power. Coal, nuclear, sure, solar, never even though the SAPL is basically solar power writ large it's never even mentioned. Everything runs off He3 to the point where it's very odd.

** How many solar panels do you think it would take to run a gravitic drive? In addition, producing solar panels requires time and energy, which are in fact the two things they are short of in the crisis. You can't switch to solar in a day, and humanities power requirements have most likely expanded several orders of magnitude from the present.

** Even stranger, Solar panels are things we have powering the majority of our space stations, satelites, and probes ''now.'' And for ships too far out from the sun to benefit (such as the Voyager probes), they have nuclear power sources... which again, we have ''now.'' And would probably be even more effective when combined with alien tech.

**More to the point, He3 is mentioned to be extremely rare, and the fuel stations pumps a lot of atmosphere to get it. You'd think they might try harvesting fuel for fusion too. That way, you get high efficiency ground power plants, and spacecraft that are in the realm of possibility for most modern industrialized countries to build. For that matter, after Vernon decides to use a clean fusion bomb-pumped ORION engine for the battleglobes, you would think Earth might start trying to build ORION shuttles. They could probably carry a similar cargo capacity to Paw tugs, whilst being exceptionally cheaper to produce and run.
