At the end of Ender's Game, a Hive Queen egg is found by Ender exactly on the planet where he happens to arrive. As far as the rest of the Ender works indicate, this is the only Hive Queen egg found after the Xenocide. It seems that most of the queens were on the home planet, except for that single one. How is this possible, that the Formics knew where Ender would be, and managed to get an egg in that location, not to mention the other work in re-creating the Game that Ender knew so well? Something just doesn't quite add up in that story for me...
In summary, I'm asking:
- How did the Formics choose that particular planet? It seems like they must have known before the Xenocide where Ender was going, or else had a method of building after the queens had all died.
- How did the egg get there, given the distance from the world with all of the queens?
- If there was a queen at every world, what happened to them?
