Lord, the MS dug up in Turn A must be ancient! Its a wonder Capule even
works, much less being rust and rot free! It makes you wonder, how can they
can up keep ancient MS, much less keep them working in the Turn A time frame?
I would love to know the answers, but I can't until I see Turn A. They must
be very selective about what technology they choose to keep or else the earth
people have some huge secrets that could be told during Turn A's run. Turn A
sounds more and more interesting as time goes by! I am getting more excited
by Turn A all the time.
