So I was reading through the examples of an Action Phase in the manual (pages 16-17) and got a kick out of the names. Alastair (Reynolds), Ken (MacLeod), Iain (M Banks) and Vernor (Vinge). Wonder who would win? My guess would be Banks...Abominator-class all the way.....

They are all Science Fiction authors whose writings appear to have influenced the design of the game in some way.

Correct.

I know Touko is a huge Banks fan - and a fan of what I call "high" sci-fi in general, most likely. His BGG avatar used to be a Banks novel cover, actually.
