I just read extremis finally, so I have now read the entire series. Will any one ever create a warp point map to unite the one for the four books to the one seen in the steve white 2 book adventure?
SO future activities will the pacification of Tangri space as they attempt to civilise it, as well as deal with the incoming Arduan fleets to Known space systems. TWelve or more, I wonder if they counted empty systems they could reach?
Tangri would be dealing with remain and limited ship forces, but the big issue is to make them capable of looking after them selves and making them more tolerable neighbours. SInce Tangri space links to many different places, place will become a crossroads.
THE Arduan fleets, will have to be convinced to be peaceful, then sent along to the Megara and the Hotspur expansion chanine. THere are around 20 other fleets I think, so thats alot of new warp points. SO they might not link directly to their new system, but link those systems where the ships arrive, then link up.
THE new tech would allow remote controled fighters, as well as a speedier courier drone transmissions through the warp points.
Imagine those giant ships fitted with desai drives, they could be made to be broken up and shiped. THey could allow access to systems that are located close by in real space. Most likely from starless warp nexus as they would be closest to other stars.
If they can expand and create new warp points, the next great achieve ment, is a method to locate a closed warp point. That would help guarantee security for those systems.
THose ships which are like mobile warp point forts, those would be great for mobile attack forces. THose micro black hole power generators, those would make awesome warp point defence forces.
Many people have discussed how they want to see the rigillians war, so why a not book for ISW1,2 and 3.
I hope one day there will be a warp point map that links the entire series.
We all know that one day the bugs will return. Will the good guys stumble onto them, or will they explode out of old bug space? Its been over 200 years since the war, that area of space likely have been much more built up. It alloe tavel to different border almost straight from SOL iitself. Alpha centuri and the warp chains off it, being oldest colonies, there would be extensive defences and military would be able to send heavy forces straight off. Would the bugs be able to communicat with humans if they used ardu tech.
It would be awesome if the arduans were the ones who found the bugs, and were actually able able to percieve their communication. THey are at the frontier of the warp space network so their exploration could find them. The bugs were ordered never to go through their old home space ever again, so they could only ever do this if they were found again, and had no choice but to try.
There are plenty of aliens mentioned in the game, never seen in the books, so perhaps they will be seen.
THe desai drive weaponised wont be long distance but, could be used to defend against missiles and fighters. Due to power needs, the pin hole power generator could make it most powerful. I doubt space being warped would stop energy weapons. It would be great protection for stationary objects, warp point forts and stations
