If I'm honest, you and Douglas Cole were probably my inspirations for doing this.

I initially started that project at TL 11, but TL 12 is just so full of everything you expect out of the typical, handwavy space-opera sci-fi that I just had to use it ("He's wounded!" "Shine a medical beam on him, he'll be fine." "It's broken!" "Wave a repairing beam over it! It'll be fine!").

One of the things that popped out of my work there is that TL 12 is ultimately the catch all "More advanced than TL 11" stuff, so everything from slightly more advanced (gamma-ray lasers) to ridiculous (tachyon shotguns) get lumped into one TL, so I discuss how to approach the tech level without having the sense that you're "at the end of science."
