    I think the book was a part of the story and not real, from what I found on google anyway - tv.com forum discussing show

    Couldn't find a book called 'empty planet' on amazon.

    Doubly fictional!

    So this is an old thread, but I had to join after seeing it. I just watched this episode, and heard this reference. I instantly recognized what book they were referring to, although they changed the title, and a few of the facts (but not drastically). The name of the book is "Brave New World," and it was written by Aldous Huxley. GREAT book!

    So yes, this is not a double fiction reference. Just simply an attempt not to have to pay royalties

    I was going to look for it as well.

    I think they were referencing terminator with a few additions. John Connor was around the same age in the second movie. And in the series and movies they killed the people responsible. It sounds a lot like the series. Except for the killing mom thing. They twisted the plot more than a bit and made it very original. I could be wrong. IDK.

    Empty Planet vs Brave New World

    After doing a bit of searching myself, I've stumbled across several people who have said that Empty Planet was essentially Brave New World renamed for legality issues. However, I found that the description of Empty Planet in the episode itself reflected only the generalized ideals in Brave New World. If you're really expecting a book where the machines have over run society and that the only salvation of human kind is an army raised by a twelve year old, you may be disappoint. More than anything, I believe the connect may be the metaphorical ideals behind the books, not an actual specific description of the book.

    As another twist the author in the story is Ursula Kent and Ursula K. Le Guin, a noted Sifi and fantasy author who writes a lot of socially focused stories She lives in Portland Oregon but one of her most known works "The Left Hand of Darkness" takes place in Seattle.
