Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I really like the description underneath the latest page. Although the term "list" is technically a bit questionable, its fitting enough that assuming a far future society adapted it to space-faring vessels isn't that far-fetched. List in traditional sea-faring vessels means the vessel is not sittin...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Just wanted to share cause its cool and for inspiration, not critizising how it looks in the comic, I think the comic depicts things quite believable. There is one thing that I am nearly sure that the comic does not depict in a believable way is the combat distance. I expect the space combat to be ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

>Chapter 21: Page 29 I appreciate artistic license, but you only get billowing clouds and gas trails like then when the gas products of an explosion interace with an atmosphere. Since this is in vacuum, they look very wrong. In vacuum, a gas jet goes in a straight line expanding slightly as it goes...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Regarding the Kessler syndrome, if the debris is moving in random direction and random speeds, won't we get something resembling a debris ring or debris sphere, rather than a concentrated group of objects hitting the origin point every 2 hours or so? Exactly. At first its acloud, but within only a ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

That being all said, the rail gun projectiles we see in the comic don't impact violent enough to be flying at relativistic speeds. There's explosions, but not nuke-like flashes that rip half the station apart in an instant. I would therefore assume that these railguns don't shoot at relativistic spe...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I'm not sure we should assume that every railgun projectile entering atmosphere will burn up. If these projectiles are dense enough to penetrate warship armor (and all parties concerned in-universe seem to think they at least could be), then they may be dense enough, and therefore tough enough, to ...

Got side tracked with kessler syndrome. What I wanted to say originally is critique on the maneuvering of the Strix class ship in this fight.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

This is quite an interesting dilemma, not just for railgun rounds but also for the point defense cannons (and the shrapnel they cut loose as they hit, though the latter also goes for the debris created by explosions from the energy weapons) It doesn't matter at all in deep space. In interplanetary o...
