It's a break in the "realism" of the setting I just don't understand. I know some people will laugh at the term, but lots of stuff in the game is fantastic yet not beyond the realm of possibility. Nanofabricaiton, farcasting, etc. Other stuff is part of the mystery or horror of the game - breaking reality is the point of the Gates and a lot of alien tech. QM comms break from reality, but at least they serve a strong gameplay purpose.
The damn sun whales are impossible at every level, and serve no particular purpose in the setting. The description of them makes me think nobody at Posthuman took high-school physics. But I know that discussion threads on this forum have pointed this out before, and I'm pretty sure Posthuman members were involved in those.
I guess this is a just a pet peeve, but I just don't get it. Move them to a gas giant and they're giant blimp wildlife, which is just as cool and less nonsensical.
