I have a planet with diameter 49997 km. That is amazingly close to absolute maximum! I will sell it to anyone in my house for 50 million credits. It makes a great capitol for an empire.

Risky to boast about your planets... maybe you tell us the name of this big planet, too? Twisted Evil

I see two planets within 30 ly from each other, and they are named these:
-Giner: Class 3 desert planet ID#: 30308
-Bucan: Class 1 Iceworld ID#: 30500
ZOMG!!! Shocked

Since my sub has just conquered Giner, I can say that I "owned" Giner. Very Happy
Maelstroem can confirm this, in case you think I am lying.


Edit: Would anyone please notify me of a planet named "Locutus"? I am sure there is one out there...
Very Happy

And does the Kosmor name generator use other imperator's names if it runs out of ideas?

It is definitely not a joke. Because of security issues, I will not reveal the coordinates, but Maelstroem can confirm that this is true.

Yes that is my actual real homeworld Wink

It is where all the Gingers of the world are born and bred to carry out the Giner Kings biddings Twisted Evil

This is an example of retroactive naming: Giner named himself after the planet's name rather than the converse.

As for Bucan, I suspect that he too named himself after the planet.


The other explanation:
1. Planet names are strings of two or more words. 'Bucan' is a possible combination.
2. The chance of 'Bucan' appearing is very small, say 1 in a million. Presume 1000 prefixes and 1000 suffixes in Kosmor's generator.
3. P(Not 'Bucan') = 1 - 1/(10^6)

Probability of one 'Bucan' in the observed galaxy = 1 - (1 - 1/(10^6))^n
Where n is the number of observable planets. Agnari can see about 10^4 planets, so we can use this as an estimate.

Therefore: P(One observable 'Bucan') = 0.995 %. Possible, but small.
If we count everyone else, the number of observed systems probably increases by a magnitude, and the probability of an observed 'Bucan' is then 9.52%.

How can you calculate a percantage if you don't consider the number of all existing planets and the fact that each name can only be used once?

i looked in my database - which contains most planets in the vague direction of Lucutus... and i have no planets of those names

The probability calculation is based on the approximate number of observed planets. Go to mapshare, select a swathe of your map, and it will tell you how many solar systems are in the area (go try it!).

Agnari's maps give a figure in the order of 10^4. Assuming other empires have similar star density, we can extrapolate the true observed figure to be another magnitude greater.


Yes, the above assumes that names may be repeated. However, we have no a priori information that 'Bucan' exists in the non-observable part of the galaxy (duh).

*Hence we cannot use P(Observed 'Bucan' | Unobserved 'Bucan') = 0.

By simple math substitution into the formula, you can convince yourself that forcing names to be unique actually INCREASES the chances of observing a planet named 'Bucan'.


Lastly, the figures are dependent on the lengths of the suffix and prefix lists (that I have assumed). I am trying to explain that 'incredible' coincidences are not as wonderous as they may appear.
