40,000 years and only a centuries years of technological advancement- the reason?

The late Commander Fed once told me I overthought things way too much. Maybe he was right. Recently, I've been bugged by the fact a 40,000 year old empire still drives on wheels and still shoots projectile weapons. Why? We've had 40,000 years to do stuff, right?

Wrong. I figure, if we're not that far ahead of the UNE, then we haven't had what you'd call a peaceful past. If we're still only at this point, then something has had to have happened. Don't get my wrong here, I like KEWs and MACs (I despire lazorz and the like) but something is telling me we should be further ahead than this. So, here's what I think:

Strife, lots of strife. Long wars of succesion for who would be the next emperor, outside threats, rebellions, economic collapse. A very troubled past. We keep getting more advanced only to have things explode and go to h311. We need a timeline of these things, I think... Anyone agree?

30 years in the future. all fleet lords planned to board the biggest luxury cruiser built. though the night before, general warren had a nightmare, the ship was a re-fitted execution class salvaged from the EOS shipyards, they never knew the ship was the high ground. thinking it was harmless they put it into use, the ship unable to kill of the coalition fleet lords, began making things "Happen" which ended up in the death in the fleet lords

example, Cisco de mongoose goes into the shower, the ship locks down the shower, and begans flowing Kiyoclonic acid into the showers, burning him to death

sort of a Final destination scenario

Plausible. But since the COP are not all human, they would obviously think differantly. Not everyone thinks as we do today, so maybe those types of weapons fit their style. You don't always need to be advanced to win wars, just the bigger weapon.

A second opinion would be that a civilization should attempt to advance as much as possible, which, in some cases, is true. But not always. The best military, I would guess, would be about 200 years from now. Still frontlines soldiers, but use advanced technology, possibly prototype mecha, railguns, slightly better and more efficient weaponry. Yes, i am gett at the game, "Frontlines: Fuel of War". Dropships, and robotic soldiers. Still mostly projectile weponry, but not always used on the battlefield. That would be a good image for us.


its not always the "bigger weapon" that wins. what wins wars is good strategy, forces, and more EFFECTIVE weapons. not to mention kidnappings and assassinations! ;D

Usually the force with the cunning intelligence wins. I believe we are that force. Weapons don't exactly matter. But how you go about using them, that matters.

I spent the last hour or so working on this peice by peice. It will only be made official if both Gus and Ian decide it shall be so. If they don't want it to, so be it:

40,000 years ago: The COP is founded as an actual coalition of planets, each planet answering to a head system, like Thyrenda or Vogelia, and those head systems answering to a high council on Tarsis. Beset on all side by vicious, barbaric states, the Great Crusades begin. It's slow and brutal, but over the centuries, the young and scattered Coalition gains ground.

39,000 years ago: The Genesis Operation Decoder (GOD) Machine is created. After it's initial sucess, it becomes the official code relay computer, transmitting to the spread apart COP worlds, via beacons placed in warpspace (where ships go when in slipstream, and breifly for Thyrendi jump drives).

37,000 years ago: It becomes aparent, as the Coalition gained more territory, that word has spread of a new power that is bringing law and justice. Planets start to join faster than they can be conquered, or even sent a garrison. Technology is on the rise.

31,000 years ago: The Great Crusades are now over, a great deal of the galaxy is under Coalition rule. The GOD Machine shuts down for some reason, but is quickly forgotten as new and better things take it's place. The technological golden age of the COP has begun.

28,297 years ago: The COP's computer network crashes for an unknown reason, bringing down with it the commucations arrays in warpspace, effectively isolating every Coalition world. As you can imagine, all h311 breaks loose as people realize they are alone. Civil wars start when it becomes clear COP officials no longer have the power to summon down the hammer of the Coalition on would-be rebels.

27,000 years ago: On Tarsis, one warlord manages to best all the other warlords, and names himself emperor. He sets about rebuilding the shattered capitol world, and sends out ships to see what other planets had been up to during this time. The situation is grim, the same had happened on almost every other world. All that had been gained during the first 12,000 years had been lost. Much to the Emperor's displeasure, many planets no longer wanted to be in the Coalition, or at least didn't have any one leader to speak for them. The slow reconquest began, and the even slower process of finding the warpspace communication beacons began as well. It is theororized the ancestor of the modern W-ship was built for this purpose.

25,000 years ago: The Coalition, under the Emperor of Tarsis, had regained half of it's former territory. The technology that had driven the Great Crusades was mostly lost, things were considerably slower. By the time the COP had reached Thyrenda, the funds nessacary to continued the conquest were gone. Thyrenda, once the center of a large part of the Coalition, was now a frontier world, as were many others.

24,000 years ago: Many of the communication beacons were retrieved and fixed after a long search through warpspace. A good deal of ships were lost under mysterious circumstances, suggesting warpspace wasn't as safe as once thought, or at least, long stays in warpspace weren't as safe as once though.

20,000 years ago: Civil war breaks out on a massive scale as an Emperor dies with no succesor. The warpspace commucation beacons, the most advanced remaining techonology in use by the the Coalition, become a fought-over commodity by the factions vying for control of the throne.

19,948 years ago: One faction comes out dominant, and begins the long process of conquering the opposers. Once more, the COP is set back many years of progress by war. And yet again, ships are sent into warpspace to find lost beacons (Those beacons, when will they ever learn?).

15,000 years ago: A plague decimates many worlds in the Coalition, causing more instability.

13,000 years ago: An outside power, one of those the Coalition was unable to reconquer, sweeps through the COP, causing a path of destruction. Tarsis itself is sacked. Morale is very low. The invasion is followed by an economic collapse. Whatever morale was left in the COP, it was gone now.

12,000 years ago: A rebellion forms near the core of the galaxy, the systems succesfully split off and go isolationist.

10,000 years ago: The Emperor decides something needs to be done. Through a slow process, he forges the Coalition into an empire made for survival, presenting himself as the servant of the people. It works. Swiftly, things turn around, seemingly. Over the next few generations, the Emperor takes on a more and more venerated role, the people experience more and more hardships as most of the funding goes to the military. To escape the hardships, the military is a good way out (lol cycle). For the first time in a long time, the Coalition was a power to be reckoned with. Since technology is what got them into the mess in the first place (the computer failure has been exagerated over time into a fatal error of all systems), it is decided technological progress is no longer needed.

-not sure what to put here, maybe just a few wars or what not-

50-30 years ago (because I think it's been at least two generations, personally): First contact is made with the UNE. At first, they were thought to be one of the states that was not able to be reconquered, but it became clear they were some new barbarian threat. After the COP get's it's first serious defeat, the UNE becomes a very real threat. The 6th Great Crusade begins, the first one in many thousands of years.

The network crash could have been attributed to Tarsis technologies. Because Tarsis would have been the most advanced world the marauding fleets would have taken along technology to distribute to "lesser worlds". The units given out by the coalition would have had designs like the stc's in Warhammer. Then these systems could then have all had a fatal flaw like Y2K and crashed. and since the knowledge was lost the planets and governments would have reverted to what they could produce before contact with the coalition.

Yes, that's what I was thinking. Fatal crash, computer network, and everything in it, gone, and with the network gone, all communications and the like would have been cut off. Downfall of the early COP, back to square one. Maybe even negative one.

As I said, sustained stays in warpspace were not as safe as once thought. You could run into a storm and by thrown through time and space, or just outright annhilated. I would say Tarsis was surrounded by warp storms, but that's waaaaay to much of a copy from Warhammer.

Over at the airbase, they are prepping the cargo jetrax for take-off. But they didn't know that the airbase was sat on a major fault line. RRRUMBLEEE. And they were neverseen again. The earthquake had covered the base, never sending the hovertank.

I'll write it. I have a 100 in grammar for like 6 years. sample-

At a labratory in south nagasa on the planet thoe, three scientists have finally perfected a hovertank technolgy. They have built it and everyting. They plan to send it to the leader of C.O.P.

Over at the airbase, they are prepping the cargo jetrax for take-off. But they didn't know that the airbase was sat on a major fault line. RRRUMBLEEE. And they were neverseen again. The earthquake had covered the base, never sending the hovertank.

Sat, is set. Never seen with a space. Capitalize the planet name... No offense dude, just pointing out stuffs. Hey, typos happen!

I do beleive in lasers... But not how they're commonly portrayed as beams of colorful light that blow things up. A laser powerful enough for warfare would not be able to be seen, it'd be in the gamma ray spectrum of waves. And it wouldn't blow things up, it'd slowly melt through them. That's not my approach to combat, melting with invisible (and silent, mind you) lasers.

Let's apply those to ship to ship warfare. While you're there, in your ship with lasers, constantly adjusting your laser gun to stay targeted on the enenmy and melt through meters of armor, many more meters of bulkheads, and more meters of armor, they're over there launching projectiles at maybe 10% the speed of light, for the biggest MACs. Those are going right through your ship, wreaking havoc on your structural stability. I'll take my kinetic energy any day over your energy energy.

On ground warfare, lasers might be a bit more applicable. Still, you there keeping your melting lasers targetted on one guy, while the dude with a machine gun is killing multiple people every 5 seconds. And then, let's consider, you're gonna need a battery to supply power to a weapon that shoots light in the gamma ray frequencies for extended periods of time. That'll take up a good deal of room in your pack, while the guy with an assault rifle can carry survival gear and other more nessacary things.

That is why I do not like lasers.

The late Commander Fed once told me I overthought things way too much. Maybe he was right. Recently, I've been bugged by the fact a 40,000 year old empire still drives on wheels and still shoots projectile weapons. Why? We've had 40,000 years to do stuff, right?

Wrong. I figure, if we're not that far ahead of the UNE, then we haven't had what you'd call a peaceful past. If we're still only at this point, then something has had to have happened. Don't get my wrong here, I like KEWs and MACs (I despire lazorz and the like) but something is telling me we should be further ahead than this. So, here's what I think:

Strife, lots of strife. Long wars of succesion for who would be the next emperor, outside threats, rebellions, economic collapse. A very troubled past. We keep getting more advanced only to have things explode and go to h311. We need a timeline of these things, I think... Anyone agree?

I spent the last hour or so working on this peice by peice. It will only be made official if both Gus and Ian decide it shall be so. If they don't want it to, so be it:

40,000 years ago: The COP is founded as an actual coalition of planets, each planet answering to a head system, like Thyrenda or Vogelia, and those head systems answering to a high council on Tarsis. Beset on all side by vicious, barbaric states, the Great Crusades begin. It's slow and brutal, but over the centuries, the young and scattered Coalition gains ground.

39,000 years ago: The Genesis Operation Decoder (GOD) Machine is created. After it's initial sucess, it becomes the official code relay computer, transmitting to the spread apart COP worlds, via beacons placed in warpspace (where ships go when in slipstream, and breifly for Thyrendi jump drives).

37,000 years ago: It becomes aparent, as the Coalition gained more territory, that word has spread of a new power that is bringing law and justice. Planets start to join faster than they can be conquered, or even sent a garrison. Technology is on the rise.

31,000 years ago: The Great Crusades are now over, a great deal of the galaxy is under Coalition rule. The GOD Machine shuts down for some reason, but is quickly forgotten as new and better things take it's place. The technological golden age of the COP has begun.

28,297 years ago: The COP's computer network crashes for an unknown reason, bringing down with it the commucations arrays in warpspace, effectively isolating every Coalition world. As you can imagine, all h311 breaks loose as people realize they are alone. Civil wars start when it becomes clear COP officials no longer have the power to summon down the hammer of the Coalition on would-be rebels.

27,000 years ago: On Tarsis, one warlord manages to best all the other warlords, and names himself emperor. He sets about rebuilding the shattered capitol world, and sends out ships to see what other planets had been up to during this time. The situation is grim, the same had happened on almost every other world. All that had been gained during the first 12,000 years had been lost. Much to the Emperor's displeasure, many planets no longer wanted to be in the Coalition, or at least didn't have any one leader to speak for them. The slow reconquest began, and the even slower process of finding the warpspace communication beacons began as well. It is theororized the ancestor of the modern W-ship was built for this purpose.

25,000 years ago: The Coalition, under the Emperor of Tarsis, had regained half of it's former territory. The technology that had driven the Great Crusades was mostly lost, things were considerably slower. By the time the COP had reached Thyrenda, the funds nessacary to continued the conquest were gone. Thyrenda, once the center of a large part of the Coalition, was now a frontier world, as were many others.

24,000 years ago: Many of the communication beacons were retrieved and fixed after a long search through warpspace. A good deal of ships were lost under mysterious circumstances, suggesting warpspace wasn't as safe as once thought, or at least, long stays in warpspace weren't as safe as once though.

20,000 years ago: Civil war breaks out on a massive scale as an Emperor dies with no succesor. The warpspace commucation beacons, the most advanced remaining techonology in use by the the Coalition, become a fought-over commodity by the factions vying for control of the throne.

19,948 years ago: One faction comes out dominant, and begins the long process of conquering the opposers. Once more, the COP is set back many years of progress by war. And yet again, ships are sent into warpspace to find lost beacons (Those beacons, when will they ever learn?).

15,000 years ago: A plague decimates many worlds in the Coalition, causing more instability.

13,000 years ago: An outside power, one of those the Coalition was unable to reconquer, sweeps through the COP, causing a path of destruction. Tarsis itself is sacked. Morale is very low. The invasion is followed by an economic collapse. Whatever morale was left in the COP, it was gone now.

12,000 years ago: A rebellion forms near the core of the galaxy, the systems succesfully split off and go isolationist.

10,000 years ago: The Emperor decides something needs to be done. Through a slow process, he forges the Coalition into an empire made for survival, presenting himself as the servant of the people. It works. Swiftly, things turn around, seemingly. Over the next few generations, the Emperor takes on a more and more venerated role, the people experience more and more hardships as most of the funding goes to the military. To escape the hardships, the military is a good way out (lol cycle). For the first time in a long time, the Coalition was a power to be reckoned with. Since technology is what got them into the mess in the first place (the computer failure has been exagerated over time into a fatal error of all systems), it is decided technological progress is no longer needed.

-not sure what to put here, maybe just a few wars or what not-

50-30 years ago (because I think it's been at least two generations, personally): First contact is made with the UNE. At first, they were thought to be one of the states that was not able to be reconquered, but it became clear they were some new barbarian threat. After the COP get's it's first serious defeat, the UNE becomes a very real threat. The 6th Great Crusade begins, the first one in many thousands of years.

Oh. How do you direct plasma then?

And can you make any sense of this?

In astrophysical plasmas, Debye screening prevents electric fields from directly affecting the plasma over large distances (i.e. greater than the Debye length). But the existence of charged particles causes the plasma to generate and can be affected by magnetic fields. This can and does cause extremely complex behaviour, such as the generation of plasma double layers, an object which separates charge over a few tens of Debye lengths. The dynamics of plasmas interacting with external and self-generated magnetic fields are studied in the academic discipline of magnetohydrodynamics.

simple enough

that plasma is iron/steel/cobalt/nickel and thus magnetic

there are other plasmas but iron is the best because it needs to be superheated

if you mean fire u need to keep it heated in the case so on impact it hasnt turned back into a gas

So, if they're using iron plasma, a magnetic feild could disrupt the plasma flow. However, if they're using a nonmagnetic plasma, it's unstoppable. Unless you a cold plasma sheild.

which is why my tech uses a strong magnetic shield and a compound steel/iron/alluminium(i call it ironium) heat shield(it is very effective)

anyway what other tech have we made except plasma stoppers?

Well, I guess you could use magnetics again to stop or slow down incoming ordanance... Not sure what else we really have. Probably some advanced forms of power generators for ships and the like. And, most importantly, FTL devices, either the common slip stream, the Thyrendi jump drive, or whatever else you want to use to fly through warpspace to get from one point to another.

well heres a list of the tech i created

*a magnetic field to slow down MACs or KEWs(is that an actual round?)
*a tractor beam that can move a planet out of its orbit creating mass havoc
*a "jumper" device that was banned by the cop due to...some side effects

Quoting PA ND A .
<i>"The Coalition F3-B6 assault weapon is a highly effective hybrid that uses a small magnetic coil located in the muzzle section to fire a large, tough, tungsten projectile at extremely high velocities. Rather than automatic fire, it uses a large clip holding 14 rounds. While offering a slow firing rate(26 rounds a minute), it is guaranteed kill at close range, dismemberment, and perforation are likely. The elite GK-OSP trooopers use this for it's amazingly light weight." </i>

^I like the idea.

awesome but where did u get that from? did u create it urself?

Yup, hacking attempt. I've had two attempts on my email, I'd hate to deal with a third (from anyone). I swear, if I ever find out who was doing it, I will hunt them down and beat them up with my crowbar.
