Ender's Game Wiki
SPOILER WARNING: Ender's Game plot details follow.

The Nets were an Internet-like network of connections between computers. It required a Citizen Access to be used by the average person.[1]


Shortly before the Third Formic War, Valentine and Peter Wiggin accessed the Nets under the pseudonyms of Demosthenes and Locke, respectively. They visited various political forums and created discussions, and later wrote columns on the Nets furthering their political goals, eventually rising to global political prominence.[1]


  • It is interesting to note that the World Wide Web, the modern form of the Internet, was not invented until 1990, 5 years after Ender's Game was published. Orson Scott Card accurately predicted how much influence the nets would have, years before they became a daily part of people's lives.
