Ranging from science fiction purist intellectuals 1940s "Astounding" pulp literary "Trantor" to it's "Disney Princess" version called "Coruscant" one must consider infrastructure issues beyond Asimov's "Prelude to Foundation" .


One must replace rail transit trolley trains with lifting body "Dynairship" zeppelins consisting of Robert L. Morrison's Patented lighter than air solids "Seagel" or "Biofoam" sealed in metal foil with nuclear fission breeder reactor powered jet engines.


One must replace solar agricultural farms with electrolyzer carbonated water vats of single cell protein Knallgas bacteria with "Nepagene" electroporators and or sonoporators connected to "Epindorf" DNA Gene Synthesizers.

I strive to achieve level of Isaac Asimov's success

Очень классно сделано.

oh my GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I FUCKING LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you realize how long I've been waiting for someone to make a good fan art of Trantor, my favorite sci-fi ecumenopolis? (way better than its bastardized ripoff Coruscant, which is infested with way too many jar jars, by which I mean 1)

Great job, always wondered what Trantor looked like. On a personal note, my user name on City of Heroes is Magnifico Giganticus.
