So there I was at the New Orleans Nebula Award ceremony. Connie Willis was the MC, and she decided that we needed a montage, like they do of movie clips at the Oscars. So, she read a montage of SF lines and concepts.
"I know where I came from -- but where did all you zombies come from"..."First Law: A robot may not injure a human being or through inaction cause a human being to come to harm..." We sat and listened, but when she got to "Overhead, without any fuss..." a banquet room full of science fiction authors was all murmuring along "the stars were going out."
It was the only line the whole room spoke, and that said a great deal.
Context is orbiting Iapetus, not Europa, dammit....
