I'm curious about this too. Somehow I doubt it's just there to guilt-trip environmentalists.

I'm getting the impression it has to do with surprise secret stuff. Who knows? Maybe when you wipe out an alien biosphere you also killed an intelligent independent race you didn't realize was there?

I think a lot of it has to do with quality of life. It's possible that you can live somewhere with a shitty environment; it doesn't mean that you'll like living there though, or that you'll be living the most healthy, productive life.

No, actually Terraforming covers the "quality" of an alien's life reasonably well. It's artificial, but comfortable and familiar.

Biosphere has meaning in a system which is not yet fully implemented. Not everyone will use it, but seeing it in action should explain the Liir way of life and why it is rational, and not at all sentimental.

Are you people allergic to straight answers or something? ;p

Sensitive, certainly, and partial to maddeningly minuscule slices of revelation. :lol:

Sorry folks, but extensive theorizing is not appropriate. Thread now locked, and please cool your jets and put away your spreadsheets.
