My God.. It's Full of Stars

"The glory of creation is in its infinite diversity." "And the ways our differences combine to create meaning and beauty." -- Miranda and Spock, "Is There In Truth No Beauty?" ( Star Trek: The Original Series ) Space is vast.. its beyond vast.. it is as close to incomprehensible to us that it may as well be infinite in size, complexity and scope. So how do you capture that in a video game built for a game console? The simple answer - you don't because everything comes down to math. Math is hard, but it relies on factoring and patterns.
