The lengthy "backstory" section should probably be incorporated into the description of the other books in the series, or removed, shouldn't it?--Inonit 15:50, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes, it should. Gflores Talk 21:09, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
I also agree. (RCX 00:57, 19 January 2006 (UTC))
Where exactly should it go? LMK and I'll try to work on it. --ShadowPuppet 20:22, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
I agree as well. It's basically another summary of Xenocide. All the information here in backstory is in Xenocide's Storyline section, so it's unnecessary to even keep it. CotM's own storyline should be fleshed out more, though I'm not the person to do that as it's been 6 years since I read it. FallenAngelEyes 03:46, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

The first sentence of the "Plot Summary" uses the word "formics" instead of "buggers". Though in the Shadow saga it was considered politically correct to use the word "formics" instead of "buggers", this is never mentioned in the Ender saga, and so shouldn't "buggers" be substituted? If someone has never read the Shadow saga, then they would have no idea what was meant by "formics". I'd fix it myself, but I wanted to make sure I was right and inquire if there is another word that isn't "buggers" or "formics" that could be used, because "buggers" sounds a bit casual or unofficial to me. But that's just me. Jedi Shadow 05:11, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Well, the term "formics" and "buggers" has been used interchangebly in the books. I'm not sure it really matters --Cadet hastings 13:21, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Haven't read the book in a while, only looked it up because of the movie coming out, but it seems like the Plot Summary is very incomplete, with no mention of tracking, and possibly finding, the homeworld of the descolada. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.15.110.165 (talk) 02:45, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
