If the details that aren't like a mangled 'Five Go To Smuggler's Cove' are put together in the right way the reader can anticipate some of the ending but the curt last line confused inattentive reviewers. Diese Position ist jedoch umstritten, da in der Praxis die meisten Science-Fiction-Nova naturwissenschaftlich ungeklärt oder spekulativ sind oder es (wenn auch selten) vorkommt, dass heutige wissenschaftliche Grundlagen für Science-Fiction-Ideen hinfällig werden.
