The staple of the old scifi, some artefact remnant of a spacefaring civilization, but what will ours look like?
1. A three dee printed Borg cube built of a maze of three dee printed pipes set adrift in interstellar space like an abandoned engine part.

I'd suggest australia bashing but we have this global alliance with countries like new Zealand, Canada, Britain, Jamaica, India, Pakistan and a lot of others called the commonwealth and at least three members have nukes...so we have you surrounded and outnumbered.

I have a large collection of comics, mostly Marvel and DC, dating back to the early 1970s. It's about time I sold the collection, because my mom wants her basement back. How should I go about doing that to get the best prices for these? E-bay? Sell on Amazon?
I bundled my twenty to thirty year old collection in ziplock bags (27 medium sized random marvel/DC/image/darkhorse comics + 3 large savage sword of Conan + random inserted collector cards per bag) selling them at twenty dollars a bag (fifty dollars if you want them posted). Given I would need to shell out five dollars a comic to buy them on eBay I though descent offer. Think again.

This means mommy/daddy must resort to the write a letter to Santa method of getting information.
prophaganda: when writing a letter to Santa never include what you want for Christmas. This is a ruthless parent trap that mommy/daddy resort to in order to discern what you want. By only writing about the gifts you want to give to others in your letter to Santa you undermine the ability of mommmy/daddy to use it as a method of interrogation. I recommend you start with:

I abandoned my ruul 6 scifi setting back in 2008:
A Bot infected with a sentient virus crashes a colonization vessel on an out of the way world and constructs a base (the black dome).

Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Bob, a particularly overweight accountant who took a trip to the international Space Station along with a bunch of other weirdos with more money than sense, flying from his local airport. Only in zero-g did he realize the cue for the only toilet was far to long...
