That's our admiration for those who operate successfully in the gray, or even the dark.

How else do you explain our obsession with mobsters?


A good post.

Perhaps over their past, they've had battles with themselves (I know it's a streatch to think of a race of creature to war with themselves)

I don't see a problem with that idea. After all, we fight amongst ourselves constantly.

Getting back on track...SRD's claims on being an efficiant writter, lead me to beleive, that if there were no other races mentioned in the GAP; he had no other races in mind.

A fair point, but the fact that he didn't conceive any other races doesn't mean he intended the rest of the galaxy/universe to be empty of life. I suspect he would mention/create other races only if they're to be used in the story.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

It may be that the Amnion gave their ships names because they couldn't identify them by scents through the vacuum of space (unlike how they can identify each other by scent when they are together in the same ship). The ship names, like Tranquil and Calm may have been meant to deceive humans or to represent their own "feelings" about these ships.
