Don't worry; everyone else reached that same conclusion.

Including, apparently, the spambot.

Old Man's War? If it was OMW that wasn't light speed travel, one of the reasons they had to do the universe switching thing was because at light speed the ships just got torn apart by bits of debris.

Going back awhile...

My problem was not that you had to play the level again (it doesn't take long to get to the wrong-choise terminal, so I hadn't played most of the level) but that I didn't really understand what happened at first, and so I made the wrong choice the second time around as well. I ended up playing the first "wrong" tangent twice.

Also, I only did 4 of the "wrong" tangents. I think I accidentally did it right my first try in chapter 3 or 4. In the last chapter, I figured out the "wrong" and "right" choices and purposely made the wrong one.

I do that, now that I'm getting bored of doing the right ones (it must be a fluke that I ran through and made the right choices).

If you failed on the S'pht chapter, you'll replay My Own Private Thermoplyae.

Hey, crater creator, if you sill exist, might I suggest editing all of your reviews into the first post? Or can you not put that many characters into a post?

Each post is already pretty long. Is one giant wall of text really an improvement? I think adding links to the other parts in the first post would be better.

Yeah, you should just do that. Smarter than my idea.

Or you could put all of the posts into a simpletext document and attach it?

Done, on both counts. See the first page of the thread for newly-organized goodness.
