Where is my story on the Mohs Scale of Scifi Hardness?:
Don't feed the plants!First off, I'd like to say that I'm not intentionally making my story harder or softer. I don't really care about my story from a scientific point of view as I'm focusing more on the art of it. I'm just curious.
Space hoboWell, that's kind of odd. If there is no FTL travel, how did the alien germs get over here in the first place? Aside from that unexplained detail, I say it's "Unobtanium" hard.
Don't feed the plants!Slower than light travel.
See ALL the stars!I suppose the hardness depends a lot on how that STL travel is treated. Is it a monumental undertaking, requiring flavours of unobtanium, or just another space launch?
Da Rules excuse all the inaccuracy in the world. Listen to them, not me.
Don't feed the plants!I can't really say because the reader never actually SEES the slower than light travel moving through space, they just see it arriving on Earth.
Space hoboWell, then those microbes must have been travelling space for a really long time now, conisdering our closest star is several light years away, that unless your little buggers came from our own solar system.
Don't feed the plants!I think the term is a "generational ship".
Eye'm the cutest!Unobtanium level. It's pretty hard. Which is in stark contrast to mine which is on the softer end utilizing the Minovsky Particle. (Most to all other physics are realistic)

linkupWonder if alien DNA would have the same twist direction as our own. I think I saw a Freefall comic about that topic once.
Happiness is zero-gee with a sinus cold.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
