Not just debate...debate in space!

I was imagining something like this: you can choose from some set of proposals or arguments. Your choice would bring up different sets of choices for the other side. Their choice would, in turn, give you different sets of choices. It's still a kind of dialogue tree, but a really complex one that depends on two sets of choices.

Maybe there would be opportunities to break and to go accomplish some task (maybe bribe somebody or, if you're a Klingon, assassinate someone) and if you did those things at the right time, you'd help your side out.

I don't have all of this worked out, by any stretch of the imagination. Writing something like this would be a lot of work, but might pay off if it were done right. In the end, just thinking out loud (by silently typing on a keyboard)...
