In case The Copper States or anyone is interested I reminds me of a CYOA = Choose Your Own Adventure, brief and easy about humanity first developing FTL tech to add flavor to world building.

[Technically the thing with the Pyramid will be the first set of options of reversed-engineered alien tech. Personally I am split between the light speed slip stream (Star Trek) or the warp-touched psychics (Dune, Warhammer 40.000)]

I did the thing, but there don't seem to be any wrong choices? You just get a reward in every complication you pick. Do I not get it?[/quote]

No you get it. There are hundreds of CYOAs, more are like that, a small game to pass time or depending of the use could be a tool to world build. Not bad ends, but possibilities.

Nonetheless there are a few out there more complex with counters, that depending of the options taken can go up or down and can have drastic results for good or bad.

P.S. Silly me, I make the mistake. Usually when played, the people interested post the options taken to compare. (See the comments section of the CYOA link).
