Re: Elite Dangerous

... it is unlikely that the title could influence them to that point.
As you say, unlikely - but who knows. People were grabbing ideas from all over the place back then. Elite itself was almost certainly inspired by, among others, Traveller, although DB now denies this (apparently). There's a flavour of THHGTTG in Elite too, which in turn was probably partly inspired by a Kurt Vonnegut 'excerpt' attributed to Kilgore Trout (one of Vonnegut's characters), and expanded into a novel by Philip José Farmer (writing as Kilgore Trout).
The only good fnord is a dead fnord!
