I don't think I've even heard of this game before. My SF gaming started with Traveller and Gamma World (2nd edition I think?), although I also have a soft spot/nostalgia for Star Frontiers, possibly due to the fancy presentation and the boxed set.
I always loved the look of the ads for this game but never played it. It sounds even more like Gamma World than I had previously thought.
There are wacky inventors in cartoons still, maybe movies too?
The worst part about the Shaggy Man's name situation is that his brother is actually older than him. (Also it would suck to have a baby whose name had 'Man' in it.)
Great writeup, now Space and Star Hero make more sense to me. I came to Traveller later than you but I loved the character generation, too, and especially the planet creation rules.
That is a lot of categories (Best Apocalyptic Novel in particular seems like it might be a pretty small field). A lot of good stuff on there ... but some of these things don't belong, I think.
This was great. I really hope that one about Enkidu is true.
I achieved semantic satiety around page 16. The word 'pumpkin' is just meaningless noise to me now.
With these kind of advances we surely can't be more than 20 years away from fusion power. Just like when I was a kid.

You could play even more games with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and dongle.

Did you see the recent series of Dork Tower strips with an Inklings RPG? Starts here: http://www.dorktower.com/2012/06/18/novel-game/
That picture is awesome. I like the sound of the novel, too.
