Charles Taylor had the same idea I did (was Outland pre-Voyager?)... 
Outland was released in 1981, the Voyagers passed by in, what, '79 and 
'80?  So given writing time & production, I'm willing to bet that our 
knowledge of the system just advanced past what was known when the story

was written.  It doesn't change the fact that's it's a great yarn. ^_^

I think people are looking for titles here. ^_-  And not Star Wars....

>For the anime, any gundam is excellent, especially any of the OAV

Um... okay.  (I've been less than impressed with most of it, though if 
you're only thinking of the battle sequences and don't mind the
robts issue they are quite good.  This is, of course, my opinion. ^_^ )

>(highly amusing)

Amusing... okay, yes. ^_^;  LoGH is *great*, but unfortunately difficult
apply to FT battles because of the scale.  (Though I know there have
some attempts made to model the mass battles... what are the smaller
only 10,000 ships to a side? ^_- )

Trees and crystals, yes, much fun, but sparse on the space 
battles.  (Unless you train your starship in evasive maneuvers by
it drunk.... ^_- )  It is a fun show, though, and my (older) sister
her car -- now my car -- after the starship/cabbit in question....
