    Looks like I owe an apology to @Kellise and @0x6A7232.

    Guys, I'm sincerely sorry that I reacted poorly to your constructive criticism. I humbly apologise for launching those nukes.

    10-10, Good Buddies.

    That'd be cool, but as far as I know, Selkirk didn't have any children. But he very well could have before the events of Aurora Falls.

    That seems like something that could only be proven or disproven by Bugzapper himself.
    I've been skulking around here for almost four years.

    Yet I still have no idea what's going on.

    One would think that that would be something that Selkirk would have thought about many times during the events of Aurora Falls and even Borealis Rising (as he's preparing to head back to civilization now). But yes, we must hear from Bugzapper yes / no / wouldn't you like to know. :D

    That makes me think of an interesting question: is Selkirkreally the same person he was when he was human? Obviously Bugzapper intends it this way, but the way I see it, it seems as though while he has the memories of the original Selkirk, his view of the world, and as a result, his personality, has changed dramatically due to the clearly quite different experience of having a mechanical body vs. a human one. He has different senses, different abilities, and reads information in a different way. Even though it's not touched on that much in the story, I don't see any way that that wouldn't fundamentally change someones personality.

    With a different personality and a different body, one that isn't even biological, I would say that there is no way that he is truly the same person. He looks the same, he has the same memories, and will share at least some of the same behaviors, but on a fundamental level, he is no longer Alexander Selkirk. He is something new.

    I wonder if / when he'll find the teleporter on the inside of the island (or if that even fits in this universe).

    Now wait a second:

    Combine this information with the cannon's relatively slow traverse and elevation rates, and you've got the makings of some thoroughly exploitable flaws in this weapon's design.

    .

    "Now, you're probably thinking that something this size would be a sluggish performer in the anti-aircraft stakes. Not so.
    Within seconds of completion, the turret rotated through a full 360 degrees in only five seconds. At the same time, the cannon's barrel moved through its complete arc of motion thrice in the time it took the turret to complete a single revolution. Make no mistake; this turret is entirely capable of tracking and engaging a high-speed target. An approaching starship in high orbit would be easy meat, although an atmospheric fighter wouldn't last too much longer."
