Kudos on the Prescient Event.

edited April 2018 in The Bridge
Playing this event, the last in this mega, I can't help but think of real life events on the Korean peninsula - one people, separated by a war longing for some kind of reunification, tentative steps being taken despite wariness on both sides.

This event must have been planned before the Winter Olympics. Then it seemed all out war was just around the corner and Chairman Kim and President Trump seemed at their most goading towards one another. So kudos to DB for their accidental prescience. It's been nice thinking about peace, love and understanding amongst all peoples whilst clicking buttons.

Let's just hope the event doesn't end with the Rommies going nuclear.

  • I agree. DB should be proud of itself with the timing on this one and the undertones next to real life events. Star Trek is about making us think deeper about our own lives and not just these fictional characters’.

    Yes but...it was all coincidental :p
    DB didn't plan for the event to coincide for the possible reunification of Korea.

    Weird things happen involving Korea and gaming. I was in an RPG once where one of the players made up this batsh*t plot to assassinate Kim Jong-il. He died in real life less than a week later.

    Dear DB: Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.

    Just to clarify, was it that the player made up the plot shortly before Kim died, or did the player die shortly after making up the plot but before Kim died?

    This may be the oddest thread we've ever had.

    Well as a political scientist, I can tell you that the idea of them "reunifying" is beyond fantasy. At this point peaceful coexistence and the promise of aid to the North Korean people would be an excellent outcome.

    The problem here is all that brainwashing. Reality is going to hit those poor people like a ton of bricks.
