Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Discharged? From both? This sounds like the perfect opportunity to get re-hired as an independent "military consultant". None of the risk, so much more pay, and no superiors, only clients. - Be on the winning side of the military industrial complex ;) Give advise to generals, be paid for it, see the...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

It's David's universe and his story to tell and end as he sees fit. I want it to continue, too, but we shouldn't complain ... That's exactly the thing. So far ONLY David can continue the comic, it's his world, his characters, his story, and last but not least his models and render files. Someone el...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Darn. Just as it gets interesting. It was clear as day that the chapter and volume was coming to a conclusion, but the end of the comic as a whole? I hadn't expected that. After all the Collective is still there, The planet they took is still taken hostage, the galaxy is still running out of habitab...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I wonder about the crew of the cirin flagship. Enough of them might have sufficient augmentations to survive a few minutes without air. If so, getting help to that ship might be even more paramount than to the tempest, which might have enough medical and support resources internally to rescue their...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The armor and superstructure of those military ships is incredibly tough. I'm impressed. That ruined a few sections in each of the ships, but they might actually both be salvageable, and it looks like the tempest even remains manoeuvrable. Let's hope the controller of the Cirin ship doesn't blow the...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The main issue is indeed taking both engines out would make it impossible for the destroyer to accelerate in a meaningful way - it could use remaining manoeuvring thrusters or artificial gravity/inertial dampeners to change orientation, (including fixing the off-center thrust if one engine is down) ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

This is kind of relevant.

It's an hour long, but... especially the ending quotes from the scientists and engineers are kinda interesting in the context of this comic.

Sometimes the future is closer than you think ;)

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I was going to suggest the very same thing. The highest bandwidth and most precise communication technique that we have today is inter-sattelite laser communication. - It's light through vacuum - so as far as light speed communication is concerned, you can't get much faster. - It works over thousand...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Low yield is actually very important. It tricks the targeting computer into a close range attack. "Soft impact" tells the targeting computer the "warhead" is delicate and needs a low impact velocity to be effective. That means whisper will move slow relative to the station. A medium or high yield wa...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Maybe she plans to slow herself by crashing headfirst into Mr. Creed, and hopefully take his head off while she's at it. It would be an improvement for him ;) It would be very surprising if Mr reed should chose this very moment to make an EVA to deal with the threat personally ;) Fun idea though. K...
