Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I wonder what would happen if we tried engaging an FTL drive while very close to the destroyer? Need to re-read how FTL works in this universe... I think the ship would basically just disappear without touching the destroyer? I assume if it was possible to use a jumpdrive as a weapon than somebody ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Ooh, those smoke trails look pretty!

Good job on taking out the jammer, but I think it would help even more if they went for the thrusters.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Unless the captain of that tempest understands suicidal physics Isn't the captain of that tempest out of air? It's the Vorstok on a collision course that's out of air - I'm guessing the Controller is driving now. I think LeonT is suggesting the Tempest could ram the Vorstok out of the way. It would...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Wisdom, I don't think "My presence represents such a terrifying security threat that nations would prefer to burn down their economies rather than allow me to persist" is making the point you think you're making. The damage has already been done - Wisdom already owns those Controllers. The only thin...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Curious that the Mazikeen is still trying to keep the plan going when it's admitted to Whisper that it can't stop her. Is it lying to Whisper? Rolling the dice on a low-percent chance of success? Trying to get in whatever last shots it can? Do the various copies of the Mazikeen simply not know what ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The station probably has more than one controller (so they can work in shifts). So just because Bob is clean doesn't mean that the station is free of the Mazikeen.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I'm guessing that getting Bob to personally analyze the data blocks would take more time than they want - it would be too easy otherwise. But they don't have much other solid evidence - only their personal testimony. I wonder if Whisper can do a "My brain is admissible as evidence" thing, like Roboc...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The Alliance and the Republic have been officially at war since the start of the comic. Although it seems to be a sort of low-intensity border war - I don't think we've seen any major fleet engagements besides White-Rim and Farhaven. Plausibly both sides are having trouble rebuilding after White-Rim...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I wonder, is Kari going to do another round of "jump the enemy ship from behind while it chases after Niobe"?

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

That being said, the search space at large distances just becomes extremely large due to the square-root rule. So no matter how powerful their active scanners, at some point a target will only be seen if someone is actively looking just that exact way with a narrow beam scanner. Of course a jump si...
