I thought it might be fun if the Confeds had color-coordinated t-shirts for their mechanics.
Oh, yes, they say “Service Crew” in Russian. Sluzhba Ehkipazh.
This is my list of (most of) the interesting tidbits from the RJ novel:
I picked up the novelization of Robot Jox on impulse, to see if I could glean any more information from it, in the absence of a shooting script.
It was written by Robert Thurston, based on a screenplay by Joe Haldeman & Dennis Paoli.
Right off the bat, it gives us some interesting details: Christmas has been suppressed, WWIII was 100 years ago, etc, etc.
The characterization of Alexander is different, and does not reflect Paul Koslo.
Which makes me wonder how early a draft of the screenplay this was. I’d like to be able to find some distinctive traces of Haldeman in here, but I’m not that familiar with his work, having only read The Forever War some years ago.
I’ll let you know what other interesting nuggets I find :)
