I loved the inclusion of organic-organic DNI and global distributed transapience. Loved the whole baseline/indigenous conflict and the level of conflicting interests for the apologists, needing to survive in both bodies despite their inclinations. Too much reliance on transapient intervention though. They went out of their way to make it realistic, with the cryo, splices, uploads and everything. They almost succeeded, it was only the use of unobtainium that really screwed them up on the realism front. Apart from that, there were too many similarities between Pandora flora and language and kiwi bush flora and language. Can't they use something a bit more exotic? The nanotech was a little absent too considering it was sci-fi. Eywa is officially my new favorite transapient.

  1. I think that Avatar is basically just Pocahontas made into a Sci-Fi film, merged with Duke Nukem and Avatar: The Legend of Aang cartoon series, especially the episodeof 'The Swamp' (S2E4). Katara and Neytiri are similar characters with their instant trust for the outsider (Aang/Jake Sully) and their blue colouring. Pocahontas, Katara and Neytiri are all daughters of the village chief. Even the font is the same as that used in Avatar: The Legend of Aang.
