I wasn't thinking of criminals when I said that. I'm pretty sure civilians and criminals would... disappear.Draxas wrote:I can't imagine they would actually do such a thing. First of all, AC I is a private world owned by Admiral ZEX, and second, he was only granted the planet because he was the most (only?) successful VUX commander and completely indispensible to the war effort. He even admits that the VUX government only put up with his personal tastes and shennanigans because of his contributions, and gave him AC I to get him away from the public eye once the war was over. I doubt that he would consent to allowing the government to dump any "criminal deviants" they wanted to on his private planet (or maybe he would, feeding his menagerie is probably quite expensive, but that hardly counts as a society).VenusRain wrote:Also, the mini-society implied by Alpha Cerenkov I's existance. What differences would there be when the VUX probably ship off all of their "deviants" there?
Odds are good that the VUX government treats the majority of xeno-lovers the same way they treat the actual xenos: they have them close their eye and count to 3.
Apologies for derailing this thread for a moment. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to start a new topic.
I don't remember ever seeing ZEX or the VUX in general saying that he owned the planet himself, though. Maybe it was All In The Manual? Besides, it's an entire planet--at the very least he'll need a huge staff to mantain the barriers keeping the beasties from killing them all, and who's to say that most of the staff are within the admittedly narrow views of "normal" for the VUX? I certainly don't think so.
