Re: Eighth Pass Riders/Crafters

I don't have my books handy at the moment for the relevant quote, but I do remember it DRoP stating "all the weyrfolk" had gone with them. And that some had issues with the conditions of the lower...

Re: Possible Jump to Earth?

Particularly with AIVAS and the restructured calendar, it wouldn't be difficult to determine what the Terran time for the Pern Ninth pass is... but I have to ask... Why would you want to?

I knew that Avril hadn't gone by choice, just wasn't sure if it was her who had said that or not.

Re: CoP1

The title is The Survey: P.E.R.N.c.

The end of Pegasus in Space is a scene 15 years after the first time Peter, Johnny, and Lance merge minds to shift to Mars. Its the toasting of the newly formed FT&T, and while not specifically...

Re: topiary dragons

Re: Pern movie deal with Copperheart Entertainment

Part of the reason they option all of the books is if they want to do any type of flashback/forward sequences. In this way they have covered themselves for copyrights.

Re: How many claws does a dragon have?

As I was reading/typing this up, I realized that until now I had always thought the change to 5 claws was done at the time of the creation of the dragons, not prior. But according to DLG this change...
