Re: My Greivences of Nutrek. What makes me a hater...

Maybe it's becuase I've read to much Niven, but the exploding star threatening a galaxy isn't a big deal to me. After all, the Known Space books use an explosion at the galactic core (blackhole exploding, I think it was) that's threatening all life as part of the backstory to the franchise to explain why the Pupeteers are hauling ass out of the Milky Way. Trying to recall, but I'm pretty sure Niven wasn't the first or only of the old school writers to use some form of Super-Mega-Duper Nova / Explosion is is going to kill everything; it's a thing you read it and move on.
