James Nicholl pointed out the implausibility of interstellar empires meeting for the first time and having roughly comparable technology, which reminded me that I wrote a "The Culture" (Banks) versus "Civilization" (Smith) wargames article a few years back.

Kimball Kinnison and the Zwilniks of Doom

Not particularly influential at the time, but it eventually spawned a huge "Culture versus Civilization" fanfic and thread on one of the wargaming bulletin boards, which ran to several hundred posts. But I can't now remember where it appeared, and Google gives WAY too many hits on Culture and Civilization, none of them relevant. Anyone able to track it down?
