Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I fear all this is some kind of a distraction.
Congratulating the enemy before the end feels like flattery intended to put him off-guard.

I hope Whisper is clever enough not to fall for that!

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Are people able to stay active both in real world and CVS?
It is something that may seem hard for us, but I can imagine that if a young human brain is introduced to CVS it may learn to work concurrently in both real world and simulation.

Aw hell. I was right, wasn't I. Bob's the Mazikeen. Hiding in plain sight while everyone searches the weave for something that isn't there.
I don't think it's him.
Could be mistaken though...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

A certain amount of paranoia is a useful asset or an acquired skill for a competent, security conscious, systems administrator. Yeah. That's why I think he is good at his job. What will be next? I have no idea. But I think the last page of the chapter (or next chapter) will read: "Kari, the hero of...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I see one of three reactions from Bob after this. Either he joins Kari's side and helps, says he's an ally to the Collective and the heroes will get wrecked... or is the Mazikeen himself, undetectable or something. I don't think he is going to trust Kari just like that. He may want to analyze the n...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

We previously saw them pulse their reactor to send a basic signal. It wouldn't be very secure, but then the goal is to spread the information as wide as possible. I think simple text messages via EPC is not the most convenient way for a serious communication where you want to convince someone of so...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

- The only effective way to jam it, is to get an eclipsing object in between the sender and receiver that is larger than the beam-width - and keep it there ( which is near impossible if both objects are in motion ) it's immune to jamming signals that come from any other direction. A fictional way t...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Only downside is, it not omnidirectional. The sender needs to know the exact location/orbit/trajectory of the receiver and the receiver needs to know the exact location/orbit/trajectory of the sender. Any mismatch and the signal doesn't get through. I wouldn't call it a downside :) Any third party ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

An technological idea came to my mind. Wouldn't it be possible to communicate through low-intensity laser beams? Radio can be jammed, but direct laser beam should be more discreet (as you can't really see laser beams in space, only a spot at the receiver's end). Even Today military is able to detect...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Terrible plan? Is he going to attack the destroyer!? He only needs to take down the device that is jamming the signal. And then... survive... I wonder, maybe Sapphira is merely a lightminute away, observing how it all develops from a distance. That would be smart. If so, she may join the battle the ...
