Has any one ever noticed how a like Warhammer 40k and Starcraft are. I mean Space marines and Space marines, Nids and zerg, Protos and Eldar. I know protos and eldar dont look to much alike but they do have a simaliar back round story. A great race falls and such. i was wondering if Blizzard has gotten sued or anything for the very close simlarities.
Church: So let me get this straight you gave the guy our flag.

Church: Bad, bad, no next why dont you just help him blow up the whole god @#%& base.

I dont think GW could trademark any of them even if they had the temerity to do so.
Would actually be interesting to see if they are arrogant enough. Heard of the Mcdonald Clan's fight against a certain Burger chain... :lol:

i was told that origionally GW worked with blizzard on starcraft but blizzard apparnetally changed something and it *****ed off gw and it made them get out on the deal, so then blizzard was forced by copyright to change the looks and names of some of their units, but i dont know if this is ture, its rumored
Quote of the week: "dude, for a whole hour, i would fall asleep!"
Most modern Sci fi in this vein hearkens back to R.A. Heinlein's Starship Troopers as Saethiel pointed out.
The sad thing is that Heinlein was hoping to illustrate and 'warn' of the mindless idealism and fatality of a specific type of totalitarian political system that would be entirely likely to occur were it not for the existence and lionisation of international capitalism.
All he ended up with was a few hundred miguided clones of his 'marines' plagarism of his 'powered armour' and his dire warnings and portents ignored.
Same with Ayn Rand Really, just making a statement as to the propensities of the human psyche and ends up being trumped up as having developed a new way of thinking about life.
