iTe, the 2. planet in the iQ (NJH150) system

3. august 2021, by galaxiki

Originally written by dakotastrange:

But...the timing for the iStani's display of faith could not have been more miscalculated for that very night the entire stellar system entered into a massive debris field, the results of an exploded galaxy. While shooting stars (in Offceasian folklore, said to be an omen of misfortune) were rare, this night thousands descended into the atmosphere...some colliding causing spectacular burst...some changing colors as they sped downward.It would be remembered as the Night the Sky was Afire, for it was a torrent of fire raining down from the heavens and the entire populace came out of their abodes and stood stunned until the rays of iQ diluted the display."Was this how the Godstar acknowledge their reaffirmation of faith? Terrorizing ...

LBA2171 - Tom Riddle, the 1. planet in the Voldemort (LBA217) system

2. august 2021, by galaxiki

Originally written by various community members:

Fusion bugs, creatures that ingest one element and emit a different element are suspected of existing here. Their life cycle, metabolism, and complete lack of any nervous system classify them as non-life forms. Fusion bugs are thought to be extra terrestrial, arriving in debris from space. They do not have any type of DNA and are more of a hyper complex set of molecules that together have the ability to break atomic bonds in order to gather the energy needed to create duplicates of themselves. Their favorite food is helium which is broken down into Hydrogen. While they break down other atoms, they are called fusion bugs because they can build just about any other type of atom to assemble their bodies.Fusion bugs exist in hot gas gi ...

Maturas, the 2. planet in the Kharhazan (VED756) system

1. august 2021, by galaxiki

Originally written by thebigh:

A cold planet with a smooth surface of rock and ice. There is a huge subsurface ocean of extremely salty water, containing primitive aquatic life. For a large planet, Maturas has an uncommonly thin atmosphere which makes it much colder than most planets at a comparable distance from a red dwarf star.There are several subterranean colonies on Maturas.During one of the many civil wars in this system much of the southern hemisphere was devastated by a nuclear war against the cities that had been there. These areas are still dangerously radioactive. It has recently been discovered that the heat released by the radioactive rocks is slowly melting through the ice. If the pollutants reach the subsurface ocean and become dispersed, the ecologic ...

AgKronar, the 10. planet in the AlphaSi (RFC198) system

31. july 2021, by galaxiki

Originally written by pieman:

Ag Crow-Narlarge atmosphere, all desert. rotation and orbit of sun means that the same faces always faces the sun. Nomadic tribes live on the threshold of light and dark. Planet has vast reserves of oil and fossil fuels. Mining is however strictly controlled and governed by Alkesey, providing work and income for the tribes. The mining happens just a little way into the light part (40-50 degrees C). In the light/dark threshold there is a small ecosystem with a small mountain ranges and oasis. There are a few mammals, reptiles and birds and an underground river system that has romed because of the temperature at the threshold. These nomadic people have built villages along every few miles to help them survive. They are very hospitable an ...

Ship types for reference

17. april 2016, by rodenbough

As in the real world, there are various types of naval and merchant ships in the civilizations in the galaxy that I deal with.

We have freighters, tankers and packets. A packet is a passenger ship, just an old fashioned name for a liner. Tankers haul liquids and gasses either in interplanetary or interstellar traffic. Freighters haul cargo.

Military ships include tankerstankers, freighters and packets,(called transports by the military) tenders and other auxiliary vessels.

You will encounter in my writings various classes of warships. The designations are to help the reader to understand what is going on.

The capital ships are Base Ships, Dreadnoughts and Battlecruisers. Base Ships are armed mainly with strike and fighter aircraft which can operate in space or as conventional aircraft in the atmosphere. Dreadnoughts are armed with the most powerful battery weapons and has the greatest shielding available. Battlecruisers have Dreadnought firepower but has less protection than a Dreadnought. The are, on the other hand, faster than a Dreadnought. They are designed to run down enemy cruisers and destroy them and are ideal in commerce raiders. As capital ships, they have true hyperdrive capabilities enabling to go star to star without using a star gate.

Cruisers come in heavy and light. The difference being in the realm of firepower and protection. Unlike capital ships, cruisers are Stargate dependant in interstellar travel. An important province will harbor a cruiser squadron and less important province's will have a flotilla of frigates and sloops with a light cruiser as a flagship.

Lighter warships are frigates, a large escort vessel and sloops which are smaller escorts. Their task is to protect shipping in the system and escort heavier warships. Corvettes are more lightly armed with FLAK batteries to protect against aerial bombardment of of the fleet or convoy. The smallest escortpatrol vessels are cutters whic watch for clandestine activities such as smuggling, illegal migration and unauthorized slaving.(some civilizations permit slavery while others do not)

Siege vessels are Monitors and Ketches, light or medium vessels armed with heavier artillery than their hull types call for for the purpose of bombarding enemy emplacements and fortifications. These ships can smash an asteroid, a moon or even a planet. The difference between a ketch and a monitor is that a ketch is a frigate armed with a single battery of heavy cruiser armaments and a monitor is a heavy cruiser armed with a single battery of Dreadnought armaments.

Barges and pinnaces are unarmed landing craft. A barge is large a pinnace is smaller.
