Re: Science Fiction Trivia

I feel like Scotty is a bit off for this, 'cause there was no body or anything physical that was suspended, just data. I suggest for replacement the rather extreme case of Dr. Frank "Oh I was just freeze-dried/semi-exploded after being ejected into outer space for 1000 years, but I'm Fine now" Poole...

Re: Fuel Scooping

Selling fuel sounds great to me -- speaking as a miner, I sure wouldn't mind another way of making small bits of money incredibly slowly... With a Torus To Sun drive, it really isn't that bad of a trip. (I mean -- says the one who cracks rocks for a living, soo,,,.) But actually though. Even with re...

Re: [Release] Asteroid Tweaks

Re: Interaction with other ships

* Get away from me, leave me alone. Lasers would seem suitable. I do this every so often with fricking Cobras getting all up in around the asteroid I'm mining at. A shot across the bow and my indicator flashes red and those jerks start clearing off. Don't know what happens if I try to pull that in ...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

What a yarn, Disembodied -- Capitalism's a fricking trip. It's stories like that that make a spacer almost willing to believe those flipping "Capitalism contains the seeds of its own destruction" accelerationists. Heck, I used to care about those big Ideals things -- I flew the Red and Black proudly...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

So I'm in this roughed-up second-hand Mining Transporter -- but I treat her well, and she pays me back in kind, don't you worry -- coming back from tapping alloys out of the shells of ice they've collected around themselves, in a small asteroid field around the inner orbits of Zaonce. Twelve tons of...
