Any Chinese or Indian here? In search for Chinese and Indian names for new worlds…

Hi!

I am boardgame designer from Poland.

Now we are working on sci-fi game about human expansion into space.

Since Chinese and Indians will be surely amongst the first nations reaching for stars, we would like to include Chinese and Indian names of newly colonized planets into board.

So my question is: how the China and India people could name their newly colonized planets?

For example for Germans it could be Heimat, for British – New Albion, for Russian Nowaja Ziemlia, etc….

Sci-Fi Robot Thread

I thought I would create my own robot thread rather than discuss them in my introduction thread.

If an Admin or Moderator could move the current robot discussion from there to here then we can carry it on?

I think the robot discussion begins from about the 3rd or 4th post onwards.

I wanted to also use this thread not just to post lists and discussions but I would like to also add profiles and data to compile a mini robot resource and even identify robot films or robots themselves. for…

Write authoritatively about aliens?

I just bought a new domain name today, alienomnibus.com (I couldn't believe it was available) and I've begun writing about the aliens in my three favorite sci fi universes – Stephen Baxter's “Xeelee Sequence”, Larry Niven's “Ringworld” series and Arthur Clarke's “Contact” series.

As I am a sci fi nut with mad webskills, the site is already up and running and I am looking for people who can write authoritatively about the various aliens of movies, books, games and concepts. Plenty of sci fi…

STRANGER in a STRANGE LAND

STRANGERS AND FRONTIERS

Part 1:

During my early to late childhood(3-12) and my early and middle adolescence(13-17) Robert Heinlein was working on his book Stranger in a Strange Land. In June 1961 it was finally published. It is arguably the most famous science fiction book ever written and the first to be a national best-seller. In 1963 I was just beginning a reading program that would only end with my death or some physical and/or mental incapacity. It was a reading…

ALIEN

The history of the poetry written by Babis and Baha’is from the earliest years of the Bab’s and Baha’u’llah’s Revelations to the end of the life of Shoghi Effendi in 1957, some 113 years of continuous divine guidance, is largely a study in the adaptation of the individual poetic consciousness and the tradition within which that consciousness had grown and been nurtured to entirely new conditions. For the world in our time has been transformed, revolutionized.

The story is interesting and…

2001: A SPACE ODYESSEY: A COMMENT

An interpretation of the final mise-en-scene

Part 1:

Since its premiere some 45 years ago, 2001: A Space Odyssey has been analyzed and interpreted by professional movie critics, amateur writers and science fiction fans, virtually all of whom have noted the film’s deliberate ambiguity. Questions about 2001 range from uncertainty about its deeper philosophical implications, about humanity's origins and final destiny in the universe, to interpreting elements of the…
