Default Dune

Just read it again, for what must be the tenth+ time.

I don't know if it's me getting older, but there is an awful lot more to that book this time I read it than in years gone by - if that makes any sense to you

Anyway - reason for the post.

This time I noticed a lot of very high technology that is barely mentioned - so much magic technology that is so unobtrusive it is hardly worth the usual fifteen pages most sic-fi authors take to explain their wonder tech.

Made me think about how much of the really high tech stuff in the Traveller setting isn't even mentioned, more implied.
