This is basically a thread that you can use to suggest new weaponry and technology to the admins to see if it is too far fetched. So I'll start.
Super Soldiers: essentially genetically engineered beings of slightly superior strength to your garden variety lifeforms. They would have superior bone and muscle structure. NOT LIKE IN HALO.


This is essentially how you would set out your comment asking the admins if it it too over the top. This thread is not to be confused with the 23rd tech standards which brings you up to scratch with current technology(I think that's what its for).

how about..... your mother? sorry, you always say that to me, i just had to say it back :P

We've been talking a lot about economy in AP US History, so I've been thinking on the COP economy.

I'd imagine it's like medieval times in space. Something we see here in America is that jobs are being cut because of faster automated techniques. Less jobs= less income= less people that can pay taxes for the massive COP military. Therefore, we want to preserve jobs.

What's the best way to do this? Well, since we've gotten rid of most corporations, the Imperial government has the power to enforce how things are done. The COP takes away most automated labor, except for certain autonomous areas that either need it (Thyrenda) or maintain their right to (who knows). With no tractors, or those big spinning wheel things those hay machines have, or advanced assembly lines, work is much more manual and intensive, raising the need for jobs. There'll always be something that someone needs to do.

This also provides an answer for debtors. Back in the old days, Britain sent them to Australia. Here in America, we throw them out onto the streets to become drug addicts or something. The COP would take the old British option, and people who become bankrupt and indebted must work off their pay (in equal condition to other workers, mind you). Serious criminals would either be dropped on some world with no way off or used as food/toys for the Kstrk (ask me later).

So, we got big, manual-labor operations, and because we're an evil empire, these are overseen by the local authorities or something. Given the the size and far-flungness of the COP (Imagine it's like a big desert, with towns around oases, however, in between, you have absolutely nothing), it's easier to install hereditary rule on worlds. If the people get fed up with tomfoolery, well, they can do something. If they declare independence, well, then we have a problem. /sends in fleet

Just some thoughts on how we roll. We certainly have the population to make things work this way.

There is too much text to put here, on a post. It's limited and realistic tech, that's why I love it.


Responses are in order to links:

We have KEW turrets and stuff for point defense instead of lasers- less maintenance, less energy expenditure. Flak works even better in space than air, you know.

According to my canon, COP engines are a mix of fusion/antimatter-matter reactions, to achieve relativistic speeds. So I guess we already have that.

The Thanix system not only would seem to be barred from us under copyright, but I don't see how it's any more efficient than a solid round. Liquid metal melts things, solid metal smashes things.

Mass Effect Fields not only seem to require this Element Zero Sam Harris has told me so much about, but it also changes the mass of a ship. The COP doesn't have that level of technology.

Ladar sounds interesting, but probably under copyright protection. I'd figure the COP uses some kind of sensors they stole from Super Techno-Empire (Not the real name, you'll learn about it in the next Empire of Ashes story, or maybe the one after that one), that detects energy and heat emissions. All ships MUST give these off, unless they want to "run silent" for at most, an hour or two. Heat adds up fast, this is something people don't understand. And given the multi-racial-ness of the COP, we probably have aliens who can't stand the heat like we do.

On this note, there is no, and never will be, stealth in space for the 23rd Century. At most you can get away with an hour or two of limited stealthness (sitting absolutely still and disengaging your radiators). Warpships lurk in another reality, and use mini-rifts to stick their sensors into this existence and look for things. It's a submarine stealth, not B-2 stealth.

Cyclonic Barrier stuff can't be in the COP because we don't use Mass Effect, but we have something along similar lines. Electromagnetic projectors will repulse, or at least, slow down incoming ordinance, and on some ships, merely guide it around the vessel. However, if the ordinance is non-magnetic, then some kind of ionizing field is needed, and I don't know how that would work. Physics is complex stuff.

Well, it worked for what Ian and I came up with. You'll see it. And COP ships are blockish because as I said, heat is really easy to pick up, trying to hide from radar is pointless. That, and it's easier to build.

Also, because blocky ships are awesome. Ian would back me up if he was here.

Below are my responses. I have not the ofensive intention. If you feel ofended, read my previous statement untill you don't feel ofended anymore.

I see your point on not likeing GARDIAN system. But I'd like to point that is virtually impossible to a projectile hit a ship armed with these, since laser move at light speed. Plus, some heat sinks and some refrigerating systems solve the problem of heat.

Yes, solid rounds are nice to dogfight, but if you're planning to destroy a cruiser, install some Thanix on a frigate, and it should do the trick.

Mass Effect saga takes place on 2183 - 2185, and as far as I know, we're in 2239. Plus, Eezo is not hard to find: just send some robots to mine asteroids orbiting a dead star. Element Zero is generated by supernova radiation.

LADAR is fine. If you're concerned on copyright, just change the name and voilá.

I agree with you point of view on space stealth. Both Normandy's versions store the heat and then unleashes later. I base my stealth on her's.

As an Experimental Physics wannabe, I don't have too much dificult with kinetics stuff. CBT's an oscillating kineitc barrier system. So, while the barriers are "spinning", an incomming round would be "punched", having it's aceleration and firepower drastically reduced. It's like you slap down a ball wich was trhown at you. It'll hit you, but will hurt less.


I see that COP has it's own tech, but can I use these I mentioned? Yes, I love COP, but ME's tech does more my style. Please?

If not, we can work this out. I'm really good at developing technology.


No offense taken, this is an educated discussion in the highest manner of the COP. In fact, Steel Curtain was designed to encourage this kind of discussion, and suppress the spy talk and drama.

Lasers would make good point defense, but they'd require a much more advanced targeting system, and be generally more expensive. With flak cannons, you just aim in a direction and fire. Lasers need to be pin-point to use their focus effectively. That stuff gets hard to maintain and costs a lot to replace. Besides, life support and reactors alone would generate a massive amount of excess heat, even basics of these systems (one thing that Avatar movie got right, see the massive radiators on their relatively tiny ship). It'd just be more heat sinks to look after and care for. Flak cannons, though not as accurate, are more efficient on the scale the COP operates on.

Thanix does sound cool, but as is the answer to most of my responses, solid rounds are just more cost-effective. Even a solid projectile going at but a percent of the speed of light will pack more energy in the impact than any modern nuclear warhead.

LADAR I guess works, but we'll need our own names and explanations, and general Ian approval on it. But heat still is a massive giveaway for ships. I mean, you can pinpoint the space shuttle's ion thrusters from Pluto. Think of a full scale ship's engines.

The cyclone thingy works, but as I said, we have no element zero. And I'm am extremely against the idea of taking it from Mass Effect (because it's not a real substance as far as we know, and it's from ME only). If you find a way to make an ionizing field, and thus giving incoming ordinance polarity, electromagnets will work even better than this cyclone of yours.

The war started in 2239, but we're somewhere near 2270 now. No one has contested this, so I'm taking it as fact for now. We have the potential for this tech, but that'd bring up the questions of why does the COP not advance? We've had 40,000 years to get this right (technically, 28,000), but the COP deliberately keeps technology back, aside from medical things.

As for using Mass-Effect tech, you may borrow from it, be inspired by it, and everything (like Ian, Gus, and I with Warhammer 40K), but outright copying is... frowned upon. If we ever want to become something real, we're going to have to start coming up with our own material. We're on the verge of going behind a simple Lego theme here. I don't know about you, but I'd hate to lose such an opportunity for us all because we stole things from another franchise.

Then why do mecha-whalers have both extremely high casualties and extremely high profits?

The Orange-Spotted Purple-Hide Warp Whale most commonly seen is just a juvenile form of the much larger Planet-Eating Nomshark, and even those are nothing compared to an All-Devouring Hungerwhale. There's lots of different species of Warp-Whale, and a lot more of 'em than you'd think.

The only reason you don't normally see the big ones is because most of them don't get indigestion from eating warpships, and thus don't have to travel to the mortal plane to excrete and take the chance of getting speared by mecha-whalers.

We have a different FTL system than most. The ships themselves never go faster than light, they travel at their own pace. But it's what they travel through that counts. Through some complex process, the ship tears a hole in reality to Warpspace (which collapses in a matter of minutes), and in Warpspace, time is different. You can get a 300 astronomical units in 6 months at a certain speed in real space, but you can travel 20,000 light years in 6 months in Warpspace.

Because I've never directly stated it, Warpspace is not at all related to real space. There's a completely absence of light and matter there, aside from travelling ships. It's another existence, or lack thereof. This technology was not originally the COP's own, but is essentially limited to the COP and a few other factions out in the galaxy, the UNE being none of them.

Anyways, I'll put up my flame shield for the inevietable pounding I am about to recieve. Good day.


Because lasers are overused, hypercliched, and boring.

I'm serious about that last one. If you want to do lasers, by all means, do it. But I will not take a laser in the visible electromagnetic spectrum (AKA, visible at all) doing damage to ships seriously. X-ray and Gamma-ray lasers are the only things that would work, and the human eye cannot see that spectrum. So, use lasers, but your battles will be heIIa boring.

Quoting Wikipedia In physics and chemistry, plasma is a substance similar to gas in which a certain portion of the particles are ionized. The basic premise is that heating a gas dissociates its molecular bonds, rendering it into its constituent atoms. Further heating leads to ionization (a loss of electrons), turning it into a plasma: containing charged particles, positive ions and negative electrons.

I concur. COP tech is generally more realistic than everything else, but we still need certain things to be figured out. Thing is, railguns and MAPDs and KEWs are the way forward (Although KEWs and MAPDs are the same thing.)and we should use that for our weaponry. Like Awe said, cheaper, lower maintenance and generally better. Looks cooler when you smash a hole in something and it explodes, too. So, I think we should cut out laser weapons until they are more scientifically sound.


Precisely. Let the UNE use lasers or something. The COP is a very conservative regime, technologically.

You want reasons huh? Fine, you asked for it :P

If a soldier was using the liquid hardened rope, and he accidentally sneezes on the rope without covering his mouth, then particles of snot will cover themselves all over the rope, and snot, being highly corrosive, would probably turn the hardened liquid rope back to liquid again, and the soldier would fall to his death for sneezing...

Dude, the bullets aren't that big, so they wouldn't contain nearly enough molten metal do to that much damage..

You'd need a seriously huge bullet (along with a seriously huge gun) to really do mega damage with molten metal.

Plus, they'd be really hard to manufacture in bulk, plus I really don't see the use of it. If you want to kill something, a normal gun works just fine. You want to blow something up (a wall, etc,etc) a well placed grenade will do the trick. Both easier to make and use than a motlen bullet.

The molten tin would cool relatively quickly, because the stillness of the atoms in the bullet would be moved into motion by the rapid-moving atoms from the tin. Convection of heat. The bullet would warm up, but the tin would cool.

Use thrusters that don't emmit heat. Concentrate mass and move without emmiting heat, like sliding on ice.


No friction in space, so you can't push off of something to slide. Perhaps if you can find something cold to vent, it could work, but you're gonna need a lot more cold stuff to move the same amount of ship as a much smaller amount of warm stuff.

As in my post above, it's the motion of atoms. Heat is a lot more energetic (atomically), so it's much more efficient for moving around.

If you want a civil war, see the GGWU timeline (in the 3000s by now), the COP split into civil war after the conquered Earth systems rebelled, along with more independent vassal states to the COP (such as the Kingdom of Thyrenda).

If you want a civil war, see the GGWU timeline (in the 3000s by now), the COP split into civil war after the conquered Earth systems rebelled, along with more independent vassal states to the COP (such as the Kingdom of Thyrenda).

Ok, so now I have to wait another 720 years for this civil war.... Great.

Tell me about it. Anyways, they're in a slightly different timeline. Earth never came to nuclear war in ours, but in GGW, it did.

One day we should have a mega MOC off or contest with literally hundreds of members, the results will determine if the UNE are forced to retreat all colonial forces, or continue fighting...

The COP doesn't even have that many people. The UNE, maybe, but not us. It'd probably be about 10 members competing.

I'll be fresh out of high school then, probably saving money for college. It'd have to be a good while after that, I'm afraid. Such a investment would require several sources of money and massive team effort. Something school prevents us from doing right now.

I'm not sure we ever really need to "end it", but I agree that a massive collaborative project would be fantabulous. We'd need to pitch in so as many members as possible could contribute. I'd love the chance to bother you all in real life.

It has a trigger . You pull the trigger it launches the bayonet into the object. A little button on the side witch you can press to detonate the bayonet you can't prematurely detonate the bayonet because of a electrical circuit like safety there is also a manual safety as well just in case the electrical one fails.
And you can use it as a bayonet as well.

Well, I thought guns where purposed to shoot and bayonets were purposed to stab. You won't need a bayonet that shoots, since guns already do that.

Basically a big exploding bullet? I think keeping your bayonet would be more effective for long term fighting than turning it into a rocket.

My point exactly.

Anyway, even though we are the far stronger side, we need any advantage we can get, and I am pleased that people are coming up with new ideas every minute that aren't as low as a "s00perz av3zum v3nahtah!!!" piece of Colt-Remington-Armalite-Peacemaker.
