well, yes, earth's super computers could have solved the thread problem, but once the initial settlers were sent, i think the idea was to leave them alone and never to let them have more contact with earth. i mean, remember in dragonsdawn how everyone getting off the ship was enthusiastic for a society untainted by earth's issues? they were going to leave behind religion (i refuse to comment on THAT), and past history... basically, the start of a new world. i don't think that they were ever supposed to have links with earth again. hola, kay.

but if the "primitive cpmuter" the settlers can solve the thread problem, why can't earths super computers!
this was my essensail point, you would have the high tech new setters against the existitng collonist

corsars... anne maccaffrey made sure there wouldn't be anymore settlers in dragondawn. remember there was a rescue attempt and the one stller that was found on the southern continnet after everybody moved north said all had died but him. so they quarantine the section

well, mm, basically because that would have destroyed the essence that is pern. pern is another world. it's unique-ness would SEVERELY be altered if they ever met earthlings (pardon the word). it's bad enough that they are learning all that new stuff from aivas (wow, i sound like the abominators, but honestly, i liked old pern better). we know about technology. we know about earth. but pern is an alternate civilization. i don't know about anyone else, but i read McCaffrey because i like PERN, not her style or that sort of thing.
