A library planet: thegreatest treasure, the deadliest weapon
Earth has become a library planet over the last several thousand years, a bastion of both useful and useless knowledge-esoterica of all types: history, science, politics-gathered by teams of "pack rats" who scour thegalaxy for any scrap of information. Knowledge is power, knowledge is wealth,and knowledge can be a weapon. As powerful dictators come and go over thecourse of history, the cadre of dedicated librarians is sworn to obey thelawful government-and use their wits to protect the treasure trove of knowledgethey have collected over the millennia.
