    Looks REAL good, man!
    And Yote, WTF is up with you and montis? You and I might be in the same boat. I've been having random STN events with random species, then they stop halfway from total death and regrow. Weird! Anyway, looks like that green apple is gonna be a winner in the long run Daugherty. Now I want one!
