    The Belizards have joined our alliance.

    EDIT:

    The ruins on SFT 1321 B-III have been evaluated, and six Tech Level 4 sites originally owned by the People's Republic of Khandwa have been located. We are still waiting for hte main find on Gliese 250 A-II to be analyzed.

    EDIT:

    Star-III class Destroyer Escort ESN Mintaka has been launched.

    Ooooops.



    We've got a little issue with Prix FACs in the Giclas 148-13 system.

    EDIT:

    Our scout was destroyed with nineteen strength-10 hits.

    First Fleet is en-route, to collect some payback.

    EDIT:

    The Attitude-III NJ class Light Cruisers ESN Vexed, ESN Peeved and ESN Hissy Fit have been launched.

    Payback time:



    Our fleet arrived too late to pick up the crew of the scout before their life-support ran out... but not too late to catch the perpetrators. We will send out the 28 Air Superiority Super-Streaks from ESN Vesuvius to wipe these Prix out.

    EDIT:

    All six Prix FACs have been shot down by our Air Superiority Fighters. First Fleet is probing deeper into the Giclas 148-13 system, to see if any more Prix ships are present.

    A science team led by Bo Mosberg has completed theoretical work on Magnetic Confinement Fusion Technology, and has set to work on a study for designing a series of engines (Military, Civilian, FAC, FTR, Missile) based on this new tech. With the clues that we've already picked up from dismantling knocked-out Prix warships, we should be finished the preparatory work in about another six months, and can then start work on specific engine designs.

    ie: First you need to complete "Magnetic Confinement Fusion Technology" (done), then complete "Magnetic Confinement Fusion Drive" (working on that now), then you can start a series of seperate application projects for warship engines, civilian engines, Fighter engines, FAC engines and Missile engines.

    EDIT: Our scouts have located a new class-0 world in the Pi-3 Orionis system. They are investigating it now.

    Relations are currently rather negative. The EM emission of the home-world is considerably lower than Earth's. I've sent the scout directly into orbit of their home planet, with orders to map the system. Perhaps they'll attack him?... no sign of ships in orbit, though.

    The Charlies have provided us with a new tech: Improved Cargo Handling. We have also completed the next tech that improves our Research Rate... it is now 400 RPs per lab per year. With 111 labs on Earth and an average (quadrupled) modifier of about +80%, that gives us a total research output of around 80,000 RPs per year, plus whatever tech we can scrounge from wrecks and outposts.

    EDIT:

    Our new Gauss Cannon, Tracking Speed and Sensor techs have allowed us to design a new triple Gauss Cannon turret, to be used in the next generation of Gauss Point Defense Frigates. These new ships (and others) will be laid down as soon as our theoretical and practical research on Magnetic Confinement Fusion Drives is complete.

    There is no way to peace along the way of safety. For peace must be dared, it is itself the great venture and can never be safe. Peace is the opposite of security. To demand guarantees is to want to protect oneself. Peace means giving oneself completely to God's commandment, wanting no security, but in faith and obedience laying the destiny of the nations in the hand of almighty God, not trying to direct it for selfish purposes. Battles are won, not with weapons, but with God. They are won when the way leads to the cross.

    I presume each of the expidition class transports can haul a full brigade. Correct?
    And the ventures and undertaking classes would then probably each hold a battallion.

    So in all your current capacity for moving troops around would be roughly 2 brigades and 9 batallions.
    Or 3 full brigades and some support for boarding actions, more likely.

    I'm not sure how many ground troops you have but it may be wise to start boosting both your transport capabilities and your total number of ground forces. If you ever want to invade an enemy held planet your current fleet will have a LOT of trouble carrying enough troops in.

    If you want to capture a single planet of even a semi-decent tech / population level you're looking at a requirement to drop AT LEAST 2 full heavy assault divisions.
    Since a division consists of 4 brigades and a division HQ just dropping that bare minimum would take your current fleet at least 3 round trips.
    That is hardly desireable, I reckon.

    And bringing in just 2 divisions is already taking quite a risk. If you want to play it safe here you should aim for something more like 10 divisions ..

    Not sure... we never got any tech secrets from them, anyway. I guess we just captured dumb non-combat models on that Orbital Station.

    Each of our 11 Troop Transports can carry a full Brigade, for a total of 2+ Divisions. The difference in tonnage (20,000 vs 55,000) represents the difference between jump-capable and non-jump versions. Jump drive are extremely bulky and massive.

    ... but yes, I'm planning to increase our lift capability.

    We have established the new colony of Unicorn in the V577 Monoceri system. This expands our holdings to within one jump of the Ruined Colony xenoarcheological site in the Gliese 250 system, which also holds five colonizable worlds.

    EDIT:

    Terraforming efforts continue on Draco in the Sigma Draconis system. For the past couple of years, we have been flooding the planet's atmosphere with biologically inert greenhouse gasses, slowly raising the planet's temperature. Hopefully, the planet-wide glaciers will start to melt this coming year, which should change the planet's albedo sufficiently to "tip over" the climate from ice-house to green-house, and shift the whole planetary environment to class-0 status.
