* Beginner corporations start the game with 42 M€. 42, of course, is that infamous number ...
* The three players in the rulebook example are Kim, Stanley and Robinson. Kim Stanley Robinson wrote the Mars trilogy (Red Mars, Blue Mars, Green Mars), a multigenerational story about how humanity terraformed Mars.
* The three types of cards in the game are red, blue and green - the same colours as the titles of the above trilogy.
So - what did you see?
(Not an SF reference, but I love the blueprint pictured on the Standard Technology card.)
