military sci fi ideas

PTSD caused by drone warfare; the pilot "jacks in" to control a huge number of drones throughout the battlefield, but while she herself is never at risk, the experience of "her" bodies being endangered and destroyed is more psychologically damaging than if she'd waded into combat herself.

Isolated surveillance bases kept mostly "dark" to communications, and what it would be like to serve on one.

Popular pilot anthropomorphizing of onboard AIs - these haven't been designed as holistic machines, and maybe they don't function as such, but it's a popular belief.

Something I still want to work into a sci-fi game; a space "sargasso sea" at a LaGrange point.
