  1. another great podcast and very entertaining despite me having read this issue. given the obsession that the Phillip Prometheus character had with biomechanical synthesis life forms it again raises the unfortunate point about how legal matters kept a ROM Micronauts cross over from ever happening. some kind of confrontation between ROM and Prometheus could have made for a great sub plot at least.

  2. Yup, you just can't mention ROM or the 'nauts without bringing up the legal issues :O(
