So, I've only just now heard about Skyward and Sanderson's alien race called the Krell. However, the Krell are also the alien race from the old Forbidden Planet movie from the 50's. Did Sanderson do this on purpose? Is this the same race? Or a coincidence and mistake? I searched all over the Forum and couldn't find any mention of this. Forbidden Planet is a pretty famous movie, so I am kind of surprised it hasn't come up. (Or my GoogleFu is not very good... which is more likely.)
Wandering Investor posted a topic in Skyward Spoiler BoardAnother attempt at puzzling out which shared universe Skywards belongs to. First off, all of Brandon's non-cosmere stories. And now all the possible candidates. They have to be capable of reasonably supporting a space opera. Taking out Perfect State, as I don't feel like a simulation would make for an interesting story in this context. Taking out Centrifugal, as I don't feel like there is any reason to create a shared universe from it, as there isn't anything that I felt needed further exploration or could set the grounds for another story. So we're left with Firstborn, Defending Elysium, and HARRE. I'll run through some reasons for and against each one, along with a guess about what the Krell are. Firstborn: Defending Elysium HARRE: With all of this in mind... I rank the likelihood of these stories sharing a universe with Skyward in order of: HARRE, Firstborn, and then Defending Elysium. HARRE's tech and AI would fit the best, and DE's cyto I think would be a distraction, with Firstborn sitting in the middle. But ultimately, I don't have enough info to make a final decision. Hopefully that ch. 17 will enlighten us. What do you think? Did I miss any candidates, any of my reasoning off?
