Discussion Questions for The Fringe Series
- Fringe Runner hosts a rich cast of characters, from the paraplegic Throttle to the forceful Vym Patel. Who’s your favorite character and why?
- The fringe colonists face a lot of discrimination from the citizens and CUF officers who don’t believe they should be granted citizenship because they weren’t born on a citizen world. Do you think this type of discrimination is realistic for the future? Or, do you think future societies will overcome the types of discriminations we still face today?
- Reyne and Critch are very different in their personalities, scruples, and beliefs; yet they share some similarities that enabled them to be a powerful leadership team. What do you think they have in common?
- If you were making a Fringe movie, which actors would you cast?
- If you could read this story from another character’s point of view, which one would you choose?
Additional questions to discuss after reading Fringe War…
- Do you believe it was better for the overall Collective for the colonies to have become independent, or should the colonies and citizen worlds have worked harder at building a more unified Collective?
- Throttle and the colonists took a great risk to venture into the unknown. Would you go on a colonization ship? Why or why not?
