Quote from: Reg on March 26, 2018, 15:37:29 pmWell I rattled through that. ***** SPOILERS AHEAD *****Rush get a mention again - Moving Pictures this time. It does borrow heavily from the likes of The Last Starfighter and Ender's Game but Cline references both of these (and others) within the book itself. Sadly I can't remember a reference to Anderson's UFO which I imagine isn't deliberate- I guess that Cline isn't aware of UFO. Which is a little sad considerong that there are a number of similarities- UFO has a secret organisation defending the Earth, with a secret Base on the moon. With the defense craft being called Interceptors.In Cline's Armada we have the secret Earth Defense Alliance, complete with secret base on the dark side of the moon, and he even calls the ships Interceptors. Armada's Interceptors are wisely not 1-shot ships like UFO (sorry UFO but.that was such a stupid idea!).
