Oh dear. I have got myself into a bit of a tight spot with the plot. My heroes are stuck at the final battle scene and have discovered a plant that can be grown to make the matrix for storing huge amounts of charge for lasers. I know sum1 who is nanotech expert and she tells me that nanotech takes huge energy cos the nanobots are grown in vacuums. So I though cool – that means growing plants could be cheaper and faster. Problem is that on Io (moon of Jupiter) there is a thin atmosphere anyway and plants need Oxygen and light and water so actually my plot falls apart. I need some kind of reason for the plants. Its not really crucial to the plot in a logical sense but it just feels right.
I am stalled on this right now: because it is the final scene I can’t really continue until I have fixed this.
If anybody comes up with a reason, let me know. Solutions on a postcard please.
