Status Quo

by Drew Wagar

This story (and its followup) are excellent examples of fanfiction. They are inspired by the excellent computer game Oolite, which in turn is inspired by the classic 1984 game Elite.

Oolite is a space trading game, set in the 32nd century, where mankind has colonised over 2500 star systems in the Galaxy.

The story is about the development of a super weapon and the race to control it. It echoes the nuclear weapons race of the 20th Century.

The writing quality is excellent, and even if you are unaware of the game, is still an excellent read. If you like sci-fi, then I recommend it thoroughly!
