Q: Star Wars-inspired online 'game' focused on the Sith

drucomI am unsure if this is the best place to ask this. I'm looking for the name of an unofficial website where you could role play (best way I can put it) as a Sith - while I'm not sure if the website outwardly labelled them Sith, or if there was ever any direct mention of Star Wars, at the very leas...

Q: Sci-fi book about a professor who uses a simulated reality machine she invented to relive past experiences with her late husband

Ken PaulsenUnfortunately I don't remember much about this book only bits and pieces so I apologize in advance for the sparse details but its been driving me nuts trying to figure this out! It was a sci fi book I read between 2003-2005. I believe it was a book and not a short story but I'm not 100% sure. The...

Q: What is Johnny Dee and the thing on his chest?

AncientSwordRageJohnny Dee must have one of the weirdest abilities I've ever heard off. He has a tentacled face that makes voodoo dolls from peoples DNA growing out of his chest. What is this thing? There's some doubt as to whether he or the creature are one, or even mutants at all. The wikipedia link above doe...

@Mithical Worst Offending tags for missing image descriptions
Thanks, I'll look when I get home
You probably want an order by on that: data.stackexchange.com/scifi/query/1613274/…
@TheLethalCarrot I wanted a total column, but I left it unordered instead
also on my query wishlist: a search link, a query version that doesn't group by but just narrows down to a tag
DAMN I was trying to use SUM
@TheLethalCarrot that's swish

Q: I want to read this book again…

Openmindedhick A book published in the late ‘90’s or 2000’s, I think. The world was built around a technology that exploits relativistic effects to remote view in time and space. The narrator is an industrialist who was at the center of the technology. Help me find this book, please.

Seems like it might work

Q: What pumps blood through a listener's body?

Mark RogersOn Roshar much of the native animal life, including the listeners, have gemhearts where a normal organic heart would be. Besides that, and their orange blood, the general make up of a listener's body seems to be more or less vaguely human like. Sanderson's world building tends to be pretty exten...

Q: Steam Game (I think with a mobile version) where you play a neophyte hero who has to balance training and work against missions and a time limit

FuzzyBootsI think the last time I played this was 2-3 years ago, on my old computer, but I think I got it closer to 8 years ago, in some sort of software bundle, involving being a new superhero working their way up the ranks. The gameplay involved colored spheres on a hexagonal grid where you drew lines th...

Between that and everything else in life I haven't had time to get anything new in. Many things in the works, though.

Q: Religious characters in the MCU

Darrel HoffmanPeople are making a big deal out of Ms. Marvel being the first explicit depiction of Muslim characters in the MCU, but it occurred to me that it's actually unusual to see characters who are explicitly followers of any real-world current religion (not counting aliens or fictional cults) in the fra...

Q: 80s movie about robots, like first Transformers or Robotix

michalPlease help identify an old movie I watched as a kid on VHS. The story is about two nations of robots fighting each other in some planet.
