More Rowley references!? Whatever will we do?!

I want to comment on the email sent in by Chris Davies, which I liked. I can definitely imagine that canyon†which holds the Control Room as being underwater for security reasons. It reminds me of a certain book called Starhammer. In that book, the main control room for the†star destroying weapon (the Starhammer) was placed at the bottom of a deep ocean, so that the parasitic Vang couldn't interfere. The planet eventually dried up and became forgotten, but was inhabited by a crew of humans who ran into it by chance (hint hint). The Forerunner probably did this same thing. --

This seems to have have been a definite inspiration, and in this case would explain quite a bit to boot.
