Just Some Ideas for Bases. [Mar. 26th, 2005|03:59 pm]

This One is real Nice. I think it would do great underground or in an asteroid. This one would do in a pinch for emergency uses.

Check this place out :http://www-phys.llnl.gov/Organization/HDivision/Research/LINAC/LINACFacilityVirtualTour/linac_descr.html

This here place has all kinds of neat gadgets Space Pirates like us might'n find quite interestin'...

In the site, there's a basic schematic of the facility, not-too-detailed descriptions of all that is going on there. They have a couple of positron accelerators *drools*, pulse laser technology, and much much more hidden just beneath the surface...

In addition to all that, the general layout of the place is what we should consider placing in an asteroid for our own research and development facilities.

We'll Just Blame it on Space debris HarrHarrHarr!!!!!!! [Mar. 23rd, 2005|05:02 pm]

Pretty Isn’t it. Well imagine a wee little Rock, Oh around 1-10 cm, flying about out there – going really fast.

Now That Would Hurt!

I’m a guessing that it would be real hard to tell the difference between a rock that was there by accident and one that was thrown on purpose. Which gives rise to a great idea – we could really wreak havoc on a ship by just standing off and shooting rocks at them from afar. They will think its Space Debris that’s Disabling their propulsion and weapons (when they get them). Then they’re sitting ducks. HARRHARRHARR!!!!! By the time I’m through those planet-loving groundlings won’t know what hit them. Harrharrharr!

This could be profitable, as well as save the important crew memebers some trauma.

Our, uhh, associate, One-eyed Lizzy, is the director of a secret R&D laboratory whose sole purpose is the genetic engineering of oversized purple animals.  With a little *ahem* coercion, she might be willing to introduce a program to train the 12 foot Purple Squirrels to be your "Shock Troops". 

By sending in these monstrosities first, the loss of pirate life would be greatly reduced, so what if a few squirrels get splattered?  Some improvements to the squirrels could be made to render them almost invincible.  Of course, using these would greatly increase the infamy of the Mighty Space Pirates, after all, did not the great BlackBeard of lore burn cannon wicks into his beard as a scare tactic? Anything to scare those lily-livered rock-walkers out of our space!!!!

Another, uh, associate of ours is ClutzS.E.L., we don't know exactly what he does, but his assistance may be of use in the future.

[mood |crazya twee bit out of our minds]
[music |Them Bones]

I, Crazy Ears, George-ian Pirate Extraordinaire, do hereby officially offer mine assistance in the Weapons Section of the Crew of Crazy Beard, Space Pirate.  I bring a practical experience in all forms and types of munitions and things that go BOOM with a mind for experimental weaponry as well.

I, Muto-head, the Ever-changing Space Pirate/Wench, do hereby offer mine assistance to the Crew of Crazy Beard, Space Pirate.  Aside from my wenching duties, my back-stabbing creativity, and pure endless creative vileness, I bring the ability to change and fit in whereever I be.  The position of 'Liaison' (nudge,nudge,wink,wink) would be quite acceptable.

We, the above-signed, do give consent to Crazy Beard for any and all background checks or whatever tests the above deems necessary to fit the qualifications of said positions.

Arrr! A Fine Blade that be! [Mar. 17th, 2005|03:14 pm]
Space Piracy recruiting and think tank

resplendentape

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]
Space Piracy recruiting and think tank

resplendentape

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.

Interceptors? [Mar. 15th, 2005|03:44 pm]
Space Piracy recruiting and think tank

resplendentape

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.
