Yes. Although, if you first see "core worlds" and "colonies" (as I did), you might be tempted to think this is from another popular science fiction series. Pretty easy to recognize where it's really from when you look at the planet names, though.Bas said:Easy. As soon as I saw "Inner Rim" I knew that implied "Outer Rim" and knew what it was.
Edit: Apparently Andy followed the same trail of thought.
