LIU Atlas - Trahaxi . There are billions of stars, millions of planets, but there is only one man, Terrance McDoogal. Welcome to LIU Atlas. . LIU Atlas - Trahaxi The Ludgonian Industrial Union's galaxy contains billions of stars and billions of planets. Unfortunately, most residents of the LIU could only name a handful of these worlds. In order to improve astronomy grades across the LIU, TV2 has started a new program called LIU Atlas. Follow our host, Terrance McDoogal, as he takes you on a tour across the LIU and some of its more obscure worlds. Note: This episode is presented in full screen. The corresponding dialogue is underneath each photo. Doog: “Welcome to another special edition episode of LIU Atlas. I’m your host, Terrance “Doog” McDoogal. Our trip to our next destination has been delayed due to heavy traffic on the Navus Hyperspace Route, so we decided to make a special stop to check out the star Trahaxi. Trahaxi sits in a dense star cluster near the LIU Galaxy’s Inner Rim. This dense cluster has prohibited Trahaxi from forming any planets. Regardless, Trahaxi still plays an important role in the future of the LIU. “ Doog: “A small space station, known as Star Hauler IV, orbits Trahaxi. The Star Hauler has been assigned a nearly impossible task - moving Trahaxi. Yeah, you heard that right. The Star Hauler is moving Trahaxi to a new location.” Doog: “Alright folks, I’ve been dropped off inside the Star Hauler. It’s strange, but there does not appear to be any gravity inside the space station. Somehow, I’m going to have to float my way to find my guide.” Doog: “Ah, this looks promising. There appears to be some sort of robot thingy hanging from the ceiling, or perhaps it is me that is hanging from the ceiling and the robot is upright. Or maybe, we’re both on the walls and the floor is on the wall. Or maybe…ah forget it. Excuse me, robot man, can you help me out?” Star Hauler Kiosk-Bot: “Standby. System boot in progress. Installing updates. One of seven thousand five hundred thirty four updates installed. Two of seven thousand…” Doog: “You have to be kidding me…this is going to take forever. Oh well, that’s why they invented editing.” One hour later… SHK-Bot: “Nine hundred ninety two of seven thousand five hundred thirty four updates installed.” Doog: “Sigh. You’re lucky there isn’t gravity here. If I had to stand, or exert any energy for that matter, I would have been gone by now.” Three hour later… SHK-Bot: “Four thousand three hundred two of seven thousand five hundred thirty four updates installed.” Doog: “You’re really testing my patience. Isn’t there some sort of brochure or something I could use as a guide? Pretty soon, I‘m going to start making things up just to get this over with.” Two hours later Doog: “…twenty two bottles of beer on the wall, twenty two bottles of beer, take one down, pass it around, twenty one bottles of beer on the wall…” SHK-Bot: “Updating completed.” Doog: “Finally.” SHK-Bot: “Restarting.” Doog: “@%$&!” Ten minutes later SHK-Bot: “Ah, we have a visitor. Welcome to Star Hauler IV. I’m SHK-Bot, the Star Hauler Kiosk Bot. It’s my job to guide visitors through the station.” Doog: “It took you long enough. I’ve been waiting here for hours while you did some updating. What kind of customer service is that?” SHK-Bot: “My apologizes. It appears I have been in sleep mode for quite some time, fifty years to be exact.” Doog: “No one has been here in fifty years?” SHK-Bot: “No, I guess not. This station was pretty popular when it first opened. We used to have dignitaries, engineers, and scientists visiting daily, but I guess the novelty wore off. People wanted instant gratification, but moving stars takes centuries.” Doog: “Well, I just waited for about eight hours to talk to you, so instant gratification or not, we’re doing a episode, Upload Bot. What can you show us?” SHK-Bot: “This way, sir.” SHK-Bot: “We‘ve installed an information kiosk to better explain how we are moving Trahaxi. It really helps the visitors.” Doog: “How convenient…” SHK-Bot: “As you know, the Navus Hyperspace Route is the only route in this part of the galaxy that connects the Inner and Mid Rims. This has often lead to the route being plagued by high traffic. I’m assuming fifty years later, this is still true?” Doog: “Sure is. That’s the only reason, we’re here. I mean, besides all the interesting stuff I’m sure you are going to show us.” SHK-Bot: “Well, stellar engineers have devised a way to alleviate some of the Navus Route’s traffic. They are constructing another hyperspace route called the Navus Bypass. There is just one problem, Trahaxi is sitting right in the designated path.” SHK-Bot: “As you can see on the horizontal screen below you, Trahaxi is blocking the proposed bypass, which is designated by the red dotted line. Any ship that tries to take the bypass will either crash into the star or be ripped from hyperspace by the star’s gravity. In order to make the bypass a viable option, we have to move Trahaxi from its current location.” Doog: “Why don’t you just blow it up? Problem solved.” SHK-Bot: “That sounds simple, but blowing up a star takes tons of energy. It’s very, very expensive, not to mention that the whole area would be bathed in radiation for centuries. It’s a bit cheaper, and easier, to just move the star. As you see, after approximately fifty years, we’ve already moved the star a few miles.” SHK-Bot: “Using this simulation, you can see that in approximately fifty more years, the star will be clear of the red danger zone. However, it will still be in the orange zone. Here, Trahaxi will still affect the route due to its gravity, but larger ships should be able to pass. A few more years, and Trahaxi will be in the green zone, and the bypass will be open to the public. Trahaxi will be just another mile marker on the galactic highway.” Doog: “I’m certainly no expert in stellar engineering, but I do understand pictures. If it takes fifty years to move a few miles, how is it going to get way over here in just fifty more years?” SHK-Bot: “Good question. We are utilizing gravity waves to move Trahaxi. As you can see on the vertical screen, these waves are constantly being increased, causing Trahaxi to accelerate. The first year, Trahaxi only moved inches, the next year it moved a few feet, then dozens of feet, then a quarter mile, and so on. By the time Trahaxi is clear, it will be moving thousands of miles a day.” Doog: “So you say. Well, how do these waves work?” SHK-Bot: “The great thing about moving stars is the star provides everything you need to move it. We utilize its radiation to power the station and, more importantly, we use its own gravity against it. Gravitons, the quantum particles of gravitational interaction, are ripped from Trahaxi and pulled into the station. We take these Gravitons and collide them in this chamber. The collisions result in gravity waves.” Doog: “Uh, where are the pictures? Because I’m lost.” SHK-Bot: “Sorry, we don’t have any more pictures. This part of the tour relies on scientific understanding.” Doog: “Next!” SHK-Bot: “Gravity shielding is a necessity inside the station with so many gravity waves and particles being thrown about. Otherwise, you’d be experiencing about 50G’s right now.” Doog: “So that’s why there isn’t any gravity in here.” SHK-Bot: “Exactly.” Doog: “Wait. How are you staying on the floor?” SHK-Bot: “My feet have magnetic pads that stick to the floor, simulating gravity.” Doog: “Aw man, I want Magnetic pads. I’m starting to get a little dizzy, and that burrito I ate earlier doesn’t seem to be finding its way out of my stomach without gravity.” SHK-Bot: “I suppose I could dig up some materials to construct you some magnetic feet, of course, I’m going to have to saw off your real legs and install some sort of cybernetic system.” Doog: “You know what, I think I’ll pass. The burrito is just going to have to wait. What’s next?” SHK-Bot: “Follow me, we’ll head to the station’s Gravity Gun.” SHK-Bot: “We have several Graviton Colliders, like we saw earlier, in this station. All the gravity waves created by the colliders are sent here, where they are focused into intense gravity beams. These beams are then fired out the station’s Gravity Gun.” SHK-Bot: “The gun directs the beams to a point just outside the surface of Trahaxi. Here, they form a gravitational singularity. This singularity’s gravity rivals Trahaxi’s own gravitation pull, and pulls Trahaxi towards the singularity. The more we fire the beam, the stronger the singularity gets.” Doog: “Well robot, it’s safe to say that I’ve totally lost interest. This science stuff is just way over my head. Let’s just say, Trahaxi is in the way of a hyperspace route, and they’re moving it. There. Nice and simple. Well folks, thanks for joining us on this special edition episode. See ya next time.” Note: “Filming black MOC’s is harder than moving stars.”
