Unless you can somehow get up to defeat their ships you are always going to be at a enormous disadvantage.niethil wrote:With maple syrup, I believe ...
You caught the Live Free or Die reference.
Actually I just finished OotD.
If the aliens are as in this story, they won't be expecting the orbitals to be attacked.
We have options: Space Battleship Yamato or plague that they carry back on their ships (oh, that's been done, otherwise I wouldn't have thought of it). But the Vampires are plague, aren't they?
A plague of vampires. Is that like a murder of crows, or a gaggle of geese?
Actually defeating the invading aliens with bacteria goes back to at least HG Wells, and the War of the Worlds.
