Is Sid Meier a fan of the Flower Kings?

I tried three times to make it through the movie Avatar.  I never made it.  Every time I came to the floating mountains, i wanted to scream as loudly as possible–you stole that from Roger Dean!  And, the movie reeked, anyway.

I can’t say the same about Sid Meier.  In his own way, he’s a genius.  Needless to write, I was rather shocked when I saw the trailer for the forthcoming Meier game, STARSHIPS.  Here’s a screen capture:

Now, check out the image from the cover of Retropolis by the Flower Kings.

Well, let’s hope this is just a case of admiration.
