Arrr! A Fine Blade that be! [Mar. 17th, 2005|03:14 pm]

Now that's a fine blade! I think that the old fashioned Pirate Cutlass will still have it's uses in the close quater combat environment of a Space Ship. Considering Firearms would rupture the hull. Swords could be the way of future combat on board Space Ships - with a few modifications of course. I envision Blades charged with electrical currents at high voltages to stun or knock out opponents. A rapier might do nicely for that too.

 well until they be makin a light sabre I'll take what I can be gettin.

ZAP! [Mar. 16th, 2005|05:20 pm]

Dubbed the “Active Denial System” it's a non-lethal device being cooked up by Uncle Sam. It uses microwaves to cause the sensation of intolerable heat in the skin without causing permanent damage to the victim. It’s bloody brilliant. It uses the body’s warning system that normaly prevents injury to really raise hell with anybody unlucky enough to get hit with the beam. Right now they are looking at using it as a mounted weapon on Humvees. I’ll bet in time we could make hand held versions of these that would be great for crowd control while boarding a ship. How are they going to deal with Space Pirates when it feels like somebody just set them on fire? I love it! It could be really useful as an interrogation device as well. All without doing permanent damage – lovely.

Inflatable Space Stations – They Blow them up and we pop them. [Mar. 16th, 2005|04:22 pm]

Well it looks like Bigelow Aerospace is in the midst of designing Inflatable Space Capsules for use in Earth Orbits. These things are a little more complicated than a balloon but the idea is very similar to the old car tires with an inner tube. They have an aluminum frame core with a balloon type liner that is then held to shape with a more durable woven material. They are anticipating a 45 * 22 ft capsule called “Nautilus” with 330 cu meters of volume. Individual capsules could be linked to form a Space Station. They intend to use simple water bladders for radiation shielding. My mind is swimming with the possibilities. These things could go anywhere you needed some extra space and they are relatively cheap in comparison to what is being used now. That would be very easy to get into from the outsideJ I’m thinking they would make great temporary hide outs in the Asteroid Belt – we could hollow out a rock and then blow something like the Nautilus up inside. But I’ll bet they would be fun to pop also.

I'll be seeing you in the stars matey

Interceptors? [Mar. 15th, 2005|03:44 pm]

What about supplies? Were do we get new materials and supplies? Here is one source – unmanned cargo ship’s from Earth. The Russians just docked an unmanned supply craft with the Space Station. How easy would it be to simply intercept this precious cargo load before it gets to the Space Station? It is loaded with food, propellants, oxygen and more –even digital camera. Yippy! Any ideas about how we could best intercept these unmanned supply craft? One great thing about this is that the fewer of these craft that get through the more likely it is that they will send up manned craft ( these will have even more stuff and better technology)  also the numbers of the craft sent will increase as Space Station occupant get desperate for supplies. I love it. Stealing unmanned craft will force Earth to put more resources into space development and technology. The Craft will eventually all be armed, manned and on the look out for Space Pirates, making them harder targets but also raising the stakes – if we win we get to keep all their stuff. It would actually be advantageous to leave a few of the manned missions alone for the most part. Even if we can take them, leaving them to operate will encourage more of the supply ships that we will be raiding.

A plan of attack [Mar. 10th, 2005|03:46 pm]

Well here is what they plan to build. So how do we raid it?

It looks easy but consider securing the stations personnel. Anyone have a good plan?

Well folks the topic is Shit and what do you do with it? In space people have to eat and the inevitable is going to happen. Waste not; want not - Shit can be very useful. Check out this link.  Waste ManagementThankfully these scientists are going to be coming up with stuff we can use all the time.
