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...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Can't imagine the Helikaon will be retreating with the damaged thrusters the Scarborough gave it... I wonder what nasty surprises the Cirins might have in store for them... Probably just a trial for the destruction of the Prospero and murder of it's crew. And we know that they were carrying JAKed m...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

What's the Souri Collective's interest in this? The hypothesis I've been harboring since the identity confirmation in the previous strip is that the Cirin Alliance is/will be seeking to join the Collective in much the same way that the Republic of Daranir has been seeking to join the Coalition. The ...

Enter Trouble, stage right. (Fortunately, it's trouble for the antagonists.) I just found our one and only image of the Souri collective. http://www.davidcsimon.com/crimsondark/index.php?view=comic&strip_id=178 Tanj frell. Upstaged by almost 24 hours. I knew I should've checked the forums before doi...
