I suspect the Mazikeen took every possibility into account except losing.
reminds me of the quip about raincoats that leak only under exceptional circumstances, i.e. when it rains

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread (Thu 2020-09-03)

Indeed, one might expect that the speaker is just stalling in the hopes that Whisper's transmission can be delayed until Espenson Station is destroyed. Methinks Whisper was the one stalling, keeping the Mazikeen from more drastic action while it still had hopes of convincing her (just in case her f...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Is there any chance of us getting a 1080x1920 version of that filler-page render?
My phone has been itching for a new wallpaper since Friday!

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

a nuke requires a medium to transfer it's force, MATTER. in space where there is no (or very little) matter to transfer the kinetic energy... nukes become almost entirely ineffective. You would have to surround it with a shell or something that does the damage... but then you have that pesky proble...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

the nuke idea has been thought of in the past but not as a weapon system but as a propulsion systems Propulsion system, yes, with a shaped charge and a large reflector shield behind the ship. The use in question here was instead as a way to launch ordnance from shipboard launch tubes. Aaaanyway, ba...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I don't want to imagine how much energy and how effecient the transfer of it to the velocity would have to be to get a projectile going that fast. Honestly I like to think plain and brutal. Build a huge, long cannon like the old style ship guns, get a nuke with a cannon ball on one end and shove it...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

but at relativistic velocities, energy approaches infinity as velocity approaches C, so if your projectile is going 5 9s of C, and you knock 1% of it's speed off, you'll be dumping the overwhelming majority of it's energy. The corollary to this, of course, is that accelerating the projectile to 5 9...
