A thought just occurred to me. And since these things happen rarely enough, I thought I would ask it here.

The Empress Wave is primarily (or entirely) a psionic effect. What exactly it does is still undefined, but we seem to know that it affects psionicly attuned individuals.

Someone(s) postulated that Virus works, effectively, with psionics. It seems to be a "machine ghost", which would, in the Traveller system, require the use of some form of psionics. (Psionics being Traveller's form of magic.)

Assuming the second point is true, and putting the two points together, what effect could (or would) the Empress Wave have on Virus. Might the Empress Wave be a means to "cleanse" known space from Virus? Not necessarily eliminate it entirely, but finish its civilizing it and eliminate any remaing rogues.

Just a thought. I figure someone else came up with this same idea, but I don't remember reading it.
