As I recall, toward the end of the series, the Hive Queen that Ender was holding even comes out and says that the Hive Queens themselves were mindless drones, too, that there was only ever one Formic aiua, one intelligence. It's kind of a big moment for Ender since he realizes that even his Xenocid...

Its all about how much of their face they use. If they just move their mouth, more likely than not, they are faking.

Ender or Shadow?

I've read the books in the Enderverse a fair amount. When I first read them, like in 6th or 7th grade, I liked the Shadow series a whole lot more, but when I read it again, my interest moved away from the Shadow Series to the Ender Series. Has anyone else noticed this phenomena? I ask the question, ...

Sorry for the confusion, but I was kind of being vague. I know that there was more to it than kids disobeying parents, but the true actor of change was the kids because even with those changes, nothing would have happened if a new generation hadn't embraced it. If not for kids, would the voting age ...

My main problem with the cultural stagnation is that it simply doesn't make any sense given that it has been 3000 years since star travel began. Even if all colonies started out as X group, things would have to change. Evolution, for example, takes small changes and works with them, admittedly takin...

The judge that ruled National Day of Prayer unconstitutional talked about it quite a bit.

Besides, even if that was the case, it still is the precedent.

Look to the Lemon v. Kurtzman decision. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemon_v._Kurtzman Does the legislation has a secular purpose? Must be yes Does the legislation advance or inhibit religion? Must be no Does the legislation result in an excessive government entanglement with religion? Must be no Th...

Stasis?

I am just wondering, if stasis existed in EiE, why did it not exist in SotG. It simply makes no sense. They make such a big deal about it, it keeps them at the same age. But if it did exist why couldn't Bean have gone into stasis to keep himself alive. Is it just short term, or did OSC just not come...

EiE - Arkanian Delphiki *SPOILERS*

I may be the only one that thinks this, but that was a stupid plot. Card barely developed, took a few chapters to complete it, it just wasn't well done. If Card had made that more in depth, by either lengthening the book, or taking out nonessentials in the other parts of the book, it would have been...

okay, about Ender taking the Bugger Queen to populate another world, there is a perfectly good reason for that, and to be perfectly honest it has nothing to do with Val. During and after the Bugger Wars, Ender was being emotionally broken down, so at the point when he learned that it was actually a ...

in the case of the girl that was normal growth they were talking about, so Bean's situation is completely different and I don't think any amount of hormones would slow the process of his growth. I never said amputating brain parts, just body parts. Also, I believe the ship they are on now, is not nu...

In response to Jebus, why is that bad, not every military leader can do everything themselves. So what if instead of a supposedly crappy bunch a kids, they are a bunch of kids that everyone thought crappy, that were singled out because of what they could do. Basically, no one, no matter how awesome ...

I read EG first, like most people. Then I read the entire Shadow series before reading the rest of the Enderverse. Personally, I think that as some have said, Ender was just portrayed in Bean's view in ES. Bean was a small, but brilliant kid who was used to being picked on, pushed around, so when En...

as I said, when he gets too large, amputations are possible so that would help with the space issue, besides he wouldn't be moving around, he would be strapped down. I believe that your body is constantly making new blood so that wouldn't be a problem and with the amputations, that would help even i...

if I am not mistaken Graff mentioned near the end of SotG that Bean had about 6 months before he had to be placed in null-g, so I said 6 months as an estimate not a definite. Also if that were the case Locke why would (can't remember his name) suggest that to be the only way he could survive. I mean...

Bean

I am just wondering, do any of you think that Bean could survive 3000 years on a relativistic journey, even though he only had about 6 months before he had to go null-g. I really hope so seeing as he is my favorite character in the series, but it seems highly unlikely. Any thoughts? if this has been...
