“The Pathogen is not the only race with a chequered past,” the reptile responded, his holographic hands returning to resting against the base of his back – allowing his tail to flick to and fro. “There was a race, Sulfur-based. Alien beyond anything the Empire had encountered before then. Their mind...

“Man tethered..? Oh... You mean Dave,” the man replied, his voice growing somber as he spoke, eyes casting dejectedly down to the floor. A brief glance across the rest of the crew would reveal similar, pained expressions at the recollection of their lost friend and associate. “We... We don't know qu...

Smaller kinetic weapons (or at least, less powerful ones than those equipped to power armor soldiers), or the use of energy weapons should allow you to have at least somewhat equivalent, or at least, roughly in the same area of fire power as power armor equipped infantry. You'll face the problem of ...

Alexander briefly shot a glance towards the reptilian ambassador as the Pathogen avatar spoke, but beyond that he remained silent and merely watched as the conversation unfolded. Devlin, for his part, merely acknowledged the Low Admiral's objection to the creature's statement with a small nod, befor...

There were more hushed whispers from behind the door, although they had changed in tone ever so slightly - switching more from startled curiosity, to instead have a bit more hope in their words. Eventually a second voice, more masculine than the first, called out. "Hold on, we're going to unbar...

My concern was less reaction time, and more the laws of physics itself. If you spend less time in contact with your power source, you'll therefor draw less power from it. Of course, this shouldn't really become an issue if you keep it at some undefined limit and never bother thinking how much energy...

The problem though is that you'll be traveling faster as you move into the second sun than you did entering the first, you might not have enough time to capture the energy to slow down.

The small, shuttle-like craft drifted closer to the dead planet, decelerating evenly to what would eventually bring it comfortably in orbit around the decrepit sphere – at least until it was halted by the imperceivable force acted upon it by the Pathogen. The vessel gave a brief spurt of resistance,...

More sounds could be heard hushed on the other side of the door, several voices worriedly whispering - barely noticeable through the door and even with advanced audio equipment, badly mumbled by whatever they had used to barricade the doorway against some unknown threat. Eventually, however, the sam...

I suppose so, I was referencing more that free molecular hydrogen, as created by the whales, wouldn't escape. But then again, free molecular hydrogen likely wouldn't last long in an atmosphere. :3 I'm not sure on the specifics of atmosphere science and what not, so it was just an idle idea that migh...

Well, the more gravity the lighter elements can be retained, although I don't know if 150% Earth's gravity will be enough to retain hydrogen. If so, it could lead to hydrogen being more dominant in the atmosphere, and thus an explanation for why its so readily available for for production and use by...

If it bothers you, think of it this way. Particle cannons fire at as near as makes no difference the speed of light. Now why does it matter whether the atoms I'm firing at you are sharing electrons with each other or not? Above all else, my attitude is as follows: 1) Energy is what counts. Whether ...

Which is why I give roughly half my ships' mass over to antimatter fuel, and make the superconducting cables several metres thick to carry the requisite currents. Oh dear /GOD/. o.o Assuming you mean just 25% in antimatter and 25% in normal matter to be annihilated with, you're just asking for some...

Back to kinetic kill munitions, I think it's silly when anyone suggests they can accelerate anything of significant mass (Re: Not a subatomic particle) to within a crab fart of light speed on something as compact as a space ship. Yeah sure, I know, free-form RP all points are valid, but do you guys...

Currently there is no way other than to measure its influence on other things.


Feaz hit the nail on the head, there. Not to mention that you can generate a smaller, more localized gravity field (conceivably) if you could manipulate gravity.

Eh, actually, by relativity, the mass of an object DOES increase with its speed (as you require more energy to 'accelerate' at higher velocities nearing C, the gained energy is added to the object's mass). However, the rate is so insignificant at the velocities utilized by a vehicle or infantry robo...

I believe in typical canon fashion, dialogue + text > visuals or special effects. Therefor, the numerous codex and dialogue mentions to the Normandy falling into a Mass Effect field to maneuver during 'stealth mode' is canon to the Mass Effect universe, even if they didn't change the ship model duri...

Pretty much the only 'realistic' stealth system in space is one that masks a ship's heat and emissions for as long as possible (in example: The Normandy SR-1 and SR-2 from Mass Effect). This system doesn't work while your engines are firing though, so unless you have a 'cold' means of acceleration (...

Explanation 1: In reality, the Federation is easily powerful enough to be hegemonic over the entire galaxy.
