Biological Chronicle. Even the title itself alluded to the central theme of resurrecting the body of Mata Nui.
Kinda makes you wonder if the current gen should really be called "Bionicle" if there's no giant robot, but that's getting off topic...

7. Okay. Have you chosen a new main villain to replace Teridax? If so, who? Meserix? Velika? Golden Skinned Being? or a new character who has never emerged due of the cancellation of Bionicle?
4.Okay. I had always thought that the Makuta could make astral projections with their telepathy. Because in the first movie of Bionicle Teridax had communicated with Takua in his shadow form while Teridax was in his lair and Takua was elsewhere.

Hi Greg! I can't believe I actually have the chance to talk to you! Here are my questions:
1. If a new Spear of Fusion were to ever be created, would it be able to de-fuse the Golden Being?
2. When a Matoran Universe inhabitant is sent to the Red Star, is their mental state returned to normal as well? Example: Savage, Karzahni, and the recreated Hydraxon (Whose memories as Dekar are currently inaccessable).
3. If a Matoran Universe inhabitant's body cannot be restored at the Red Star, is there some sort of afterlife or do their spirits fade?
4.Who is your favorite Inika/Mahri, and why?
5. For anyone to ever get back from the Red Star, did you intend for the Toa to fix the teleportation systems or have Gaardus act as a ferry between the star and Spherus Magna?
6. Do you ever regret not finishing The Yesterday Quest and The Powers that Be? I know you're probably never going to finish, as you've stated, but do you ever think of continuing at times?
Thanks for this opportunity!

Just a question, Greg. Earlier in this thread you stated that if the Mask of Time broke on Spherus Magna, it would only effect people inside the MU. But what happens if it was destroyed when the Toa Nuva used it against the Bohrok in 2002? If it broke above the MU on Mata Nui, would it still effect people above the MU, or would it only effect people in the MU?
Or as an alternative, would it not effect anyone at all if broken on Mata Nui?
If so, why do normal mask powers work outside of the MU? I'm quite curious, as the Mask of Time technically still works outside of the MU, so if it still worked, if it broke outside of it, wouldn't it work the same? Or is there some intricate programing with it? It's quite confusing to me.

Greg, was Mata Nui aware that the Matoran had gained sentience?

Basically, every mask and every MU inhabitant is a component of the robot. They are designed to work inside and to affect things inside the robot. They can still function outside the robot, the same way that your car battery would still give off electricity if you took it out of the car. But it won't run your car if it's not inside it and attached the way it is supposed to be. A broken Vahi would affect time inside the robot, but not in the entire rest of the universe. If it could, it would mean that the GBs allowed for the creation of a mask that harnessed a fundamental force of the entire universe as a small piece of a robot they were sending off into uncharted space. That would be like someone just deciding to toss some anti-matter in a magnetic field into your minivan, for the heck of it.

2) Their mental state is a product of downloading and transferring their AI. If their AI is messed up when they die, it will still be messed up when they come back to life.
3) We don't get into issues of afterlife in BIONICLE, because it sparks religious debate.
5) I hadn't decided
6) I think about it a lot of times, but I am not allowed to.

7) No, we had not done that at the time the line was cancelled.
4) Astral projection is actually having your spirit leave your body. What Takua experienced was more likely straight telepathy. Telepathy can implant images in the mind, as well as words.

1) I have seen Once, stopped watching it a long time back, and I am a fan of the original Trek series.
2) Biological Chronicle

2. Poor Dekar. Oh well, there may be hope for him someday in the untold future of the original biologic chronicle.
4. I'm guessing because of his heroism?
6. Life is cruel. So is the rest of the story up to the reader's imagination? Or will the story's questions never be answered?

4) That and I always had a soft spot for Ice characters
6) Since the focus of the company is on the new BIONICLE, there is no support for doing new story for old BIONICLE. I'm not sure there ever will be, since I doubt old BIONICLE will ever be resurrected.

1) The original krana were created by the GBs by combining EP with the remains of the process that made Matoran. The Bahrag were later taught how to do this themselves.
3) We don't know that it did anything more to their actual form than transform them into Toa.
5) We were just sitting down to plan out 2010 in September of 2008, when we got word that the line was cancelled.
6) HF was not created until after the decision was made to end BIONICLE. In place of a story meeting that week, we had a brainstorm with the BIONICLE team to come up a new buildable action figure line. I believe the basic concept of HF was conceived there by a sub-group of the story team.
