Also consider glass tomatoes. They don't even look like plants, and especially not
like tomatoes. Maybe some weird stress toy, but actually squeezing one
would get your hands all goopy with sweet juices.

SDG, everyone.

So whose idea was it to try to settle this place?!

All things considered it doesn't seem ideal in any way, shape, or form. But perhaps the planet has a natural supply of something desirable?

Too bad about Sam's situation.

Think about this-
What could be so bad that they'd get away from another planet to go here?
How much could a small colony really be able to research about a planet before landing and getting stranded?

I've read a couple sci-fi stories at least where their research was insufficient to find a suitable planet- One in particular where the drone returned with news of livable atmosphere- But the colonists only later discovered it was on a single mountain- The only mountain tall enough to sit above the poisonous heavier than air gasses that covered the rest.
Information systems in this universe are not nearly as good as that unless both ends are well colonized.

So is the Mt. Lookatthat / Plateau world a direct inspiration for this planet? I hope organ bank type dystopian stuff is not to be found here in such a small group of huggable folks.

I had indeed read that story before producing VHV in any form, but the only inspiration I took from it was maybe how everything kind of went wrong after a little while.
Besides which, with only 48 or so people here at one time, there wouldn't be enough spare organs to... "Harvest". :P
