tee hee. The Swil chat list is discussing what would make a good Iliad in Space. (And Odyssey, and Aeneid.) I've actually read the Iliad in Greek, and learned to appreciate the thing. (I've always loved the Odyssey. The Iliad took a while to grow on me.) It's highly amusing. Current opinion is that Voyager=Odyssey, and I just suggested Titan A.E.=Aeneid. But we haven't come up with any decent siege sci-fi to parallel the Iliad. Closest I could think of was the Fed-Klingon war in the old ST.

Hmm. *giggle*
