This is just so I can write something about what was on my mind... But if you insist, read the synopsis (If you have no idea what that means, go check the dictionary)

Origin 33 Research Project

Synopsis: The Trio and its allies are racing to develop the most technologically advanced defense mechanism possible to man: the Space Defense Project, funded directly by the leaders of the Trio.
Project: The project is to develop a group of multi-functional self reliant space satellites, for 3 main goals:
  1. Energy: When not in use for other purposes (Defense, etc), the energy collected from the huge solar arrays are transmitted into collectors on Earth, providing an abundant source of the Sun's energy. The energy is transmitted in the form of high-frequency, high-energy microwaves that can easily be converted back into usable energy: Electricity.
  2. Communication: This is perhaps the most important use of the satellites. It will be our avenue of communication: all communications will be not through extensive and expensive wiring, but a connection to the satellites. All electronics will be essentially wireless, able to work in any area within the boundaries of the Alliance lands. The communications will serve another function: surveillance. With this, we may keep our enemies at bay by watching any progress they make, that may possibly be used against us. We are able to take photos of areas smaller than a square foot, able to identify any object that is on the surface of the planet.
  3. Defense: The huge solar arrays (read DESIGN) will be able to collect enough energy (stored in the huge Capacitor) every second to fire one beam of blue laser with a width of around 1.7 cm to an accuracy rate of plus or minus 0.3 mm onto anywhere on the surface of the ground. The energy expended will equal 17.8 Mega Joules per second, able to boil a 3 megaton brick of iron in a mere 2 seconds. This will only be used in dire situations, as the immense amount of energy required for this will impude the communication function of the satellites. Just as defense is important to the affairs of the Alliance, Communications is likely to be even more important.
Downsides: Visible Light Surveillance (Basically digital / optic focus camera) will not work when visible light is impuded by any airborne material: smog, fog, clouds, etc, but other communications that does not rely on visible light will still function normally. This means information sent in other forms, such as ultraviolet and microwave, will still work.
Design: The center of the satellites store all the circuitry of the mechanism. The circuitry will use the newly developed programmable chips, so we will be able to update them on the surface of the planet, without having to send men on dangerous and often costly trips into the space in order to update the circuitry when updates are available. The communications sector of the satellites will also function as a huge array of data networks.

The circuitry is enclosed in a spherical ball made of a silicon, carbon and aluminum alloy, with a thickness of 2.7 cm, covered with solar arrays. The central sphere will be at a diameter of 1.1 meters, with everything enclosed inside. Another set of solar arrays extend out in the yz, xz and xy axes (Technically planes, but they go that way. The YZ solar array is a circular plane extending front and back, and up and down). This will all be enclosed by a thick cover that will also function as a information receiver (for the communications sector) and a one-way light filter (so the laser can only be sent out from the center, and cannot be sent in for safety), so that the fragile inside cannot be damaged in any way.
Other Information: There will be multiples of 52 satellites at any given time, able to cover all of the surface of the planet. The second set of 52 satellites will be launched as soon as the success of the first set is demonstrated. We will attempt to have more than one set of satellites in space (at different altitudes, of course) at any given time, so that the reliability of the satellite (and thus the communication) networks are confirmed. We are aiming to have three sets in space two months after the first sets' durability and stability is ensured.

Interesting. Now is this applying to the storyline of the Origin Trilogy or the plain Origin 33? Either way, I am impressed Grand. If it does apply to the storylines, we must have a space treaty insured =D

I didn't know our tech base was high enough for space launchces? Did gnomes invent a rocket to get to the moon yet? ^_^

o_O..............Grand did work on the Origin storyline? *applause*

I like it, but there's no way it would fit into anything but O33. The Trilogies are off-limits to the Trio, seeing as how they don't exist there, lol.

And now that this is out here, I suggest we make a separate forums to store clan ideas, defensive coordinations (like this), and O33 specific info that might jumble up the stories forum or the Town Pub. We can have three sub-forums for the main clan groupings, and the main one can be used to start and store some core topics that we have managed to lose in the Pub, lol.

Actually this was for 3 main purposes:

1. Money (haha, c'mon, I wanted to write something that had a purpose, and get money like you guys do)

2. Putting my ideas (in my head) on Origin, just so you guys could see if interested

3. Maybe, just maybe, implement it into the storyline, where it will function as the Trio's main defense mechanism.

Changes:

1. xy, xz, and yz are technically planes, sorry.

2. VISIBLE LIGHT serveillance will not function, but higher frequency mapping will still work when it is impuded by airborne material. Infrared MAY work...

I third the Sub-Forum for Clans. And yeah, Jacen carries around a 200 pound cannon with rockets and a tracking system...We use advanced weapons like assault rifles, sniper rifles w/ scopes, laptop computers, projected maps, and many forms of technology. So why not satelittes (Hope I spelled that right)?

Satellites... Almost.

But I think it's decided research money will be needed to fund such projects... (INCLUDING YOURS, JACEN!)

Basically that means all excess money will go into the funding of this immense project

O_o, we have to use our money to fund a made up defensive system?

If so, I'm going to come up with something cheap but effective. There's no need for an advanced satellite system when you can have sentries that stop anything that ionvades you anyway, stongue.gif.

Heh. Atom bombs. Has anybody ever noticed that Atom Bombs were only used for destroying hundreds of thousands of people who weren't even military related while when fighting troops, they use smaller scale weaponry? And by the way Grand, I hope that Satelitte has a secondary defense system. If I launched an atom bomb at it towards space- what will it do? stongue.gif And what do you mean, funding a project? I'm not in your clan anymore sbiggrin.gif

I thought we settled on why we had such a mix of tech so certain things will be harder then others. Rifles and hand guns aren't excalty hard to make bu they do require a gun/blacksmith some time to make without machine tools and assembly processes. Like how the could make clocks in the late dark ages-renaisseance and such but not make one that could survive being on a ship or moved that much period. Greeks could have made clocks they had the knowledge for it but they didn't. Even Hero was made great stages acts of enginnering genius and should be the one credited for inventing the steam engine didn't think about putting a shaft on his steam wheel and making a proper engine

When have we used a laptop? For the record the idea Jacen carries around a 200 lb cannon with self guiding missiles is about the dumbest thing I've heard.

What about that other bomb? Hydrogen I think....The one that is kinda like the Atom Bomb but instead of a great amount of physical destruction it's mostly just radiation.

It's the other way around carte. H-Bombs are much more powerful than atom bombs are/were. A-Bombs left behind too much radiation, so they came up with something that left less behind...which turned out to be even more powerful than before.

Anyway:

1. I haven't ever seen a laptop in the Trilogies of O33
2. I thought Wolf's weapon was more of a beam cannon/rail gun
3. Most people are more prone to personal combat than impersonal (meaning they don't use giant explosives unless absolutely necessary)
4. Guns are present, but rare in both the Trilogies and O33, and advanced techs are even more rare and much more expensive to create

*Sigh* Yes...I suppose it is more of a beam cannon, but it does use shells...And it can charge how much of the shell is used. A laptop was used in the Grand Saga I would think o_O And not to mention, I know for a fact computers were used in O33 - Clan RP.
