    9/1 - Our Diplomacy Teams have informed that communication with the 82 Eridani Aliens. Diplomats have been pondering and are considering these aliens to be a space life form which don't live on planets. As such they have started to calling them the "Space Swarm" or just "Sux".
    19/1 - Automated mine recovered on Gliese 1-A II.
    No more Tritanium to mine on Mars. There's more than 50k which haven't been shot to Earth yet since we've powered the mines there. They will remain until we get them converted to Automated. Tritanium is being transferred to Earth.
    12/2 - JCS Connector completes link to V577 Monoceri. She will now return to Earth and await refit.
    15/2 - The Okean Shipyard and The Robert Duncan Co. complete on Earth and begins expansion immediately.
    30/2 - Ordnance Factory recovered on Gliese 1-A II.
    4/3 - SS Thor Heyerdahl completes survey of Epsilon Eridani finding 6 new JP. And this little gem:
    Epsilon Eridani-A II
    Duranium 158,776,200 Acc: 0.1
    Neutronium 110,880,900 Acc: 0.6
    Corbomite 21,068,100 Acc: 0.1
    Tritanium 45,562,500 Acc: 0.1
    Boronide 5,267,025 Acc: 0.1
    Mercassium 3,572,100 Acc: 0.1
    Vendarite 47,403,220 Acc: 0.1
    Sorium 141,134,400 Acc: 0.1
    Uridium 94,478,400 Acc: 0.1
    Corundium 122,544,900 Acc: 0.1
    Gallicite 94,478,400 Acc: 0.1

    Not the best access, but all 11 minerals are there.

    30/3 - 1,6mio. litres of fuel recovered on Gliese 1-A II.
    5/4 - Lord Strange have instructed me in using explosives as motivation and my Mining Bonus increases to 30%. To bad there's no minerals left.
    14/4 - Mine recovered on Gliese 1-A II.
    30/4 - Automated Mine recovered on Gliese 1-A II.
    5/5 - Polar Mongoose have been cleared for 60 labs, should we ever get that many.
    10/5 - The Ice Sheet on Alpha Centauri B-IV have melted bringing temperature close to Human tolerance. When that is done, we just need something to breathe and we'll have a third Paradise.
    26/5 - Mine recovered on Gliese 1-A II.
    6/6 - Construction Factory recovered on Gliese 1-A II.
    16/6 - Automated Mine and Fuel Refinery recovered on Gliese 1-A II.
    21/6 - No more Duranium on Phobos so we can move the mines somewhere else again.
    I will drop them on Luna to get more Duranium fast.

    Tomorrow Joebthegreat II should finish the research so we can start designing...
    Armageddon was yesterday - Today we have a serious problem!

    The young staff lieutenant looked apologetic and more than a little nervous as he stood in the doorway of the small one-room apartment. Lise nodded slightly, acknowledging his message, then closed the door. Her own stars, the sign of her own recent graduation, gleamed on the cuffs of her own uniform alongside the stylized wings and sextant of the Survey Corps, but she paid them no heed as she sloughed off the dress jacket and tossed it onto a chair negligently. She couldn't help it. After all, her father had been a stiff and inflexible man, especially after the divorce, but he had always been there. Even in space, he always included regular messages back to her with the personal messages allotment included in all routine dispatches. That wouldn't be happening anymore, though. They had taken her out of her graduation ceremony, where she had been waiting with the rest of her class in full dress kit, to tell her directly. Along with the other 448 men and women of the SS Yuri Gagarin, he had finally fallen prey to some unknown alien threat, and wouldn't be coming home again. Still, the tears wouldn't come. Instead, there was only something hollow within her, and a determination that rose to fill it.

    She sat at her terminal, which obligingly blinked on as it detected her. Entering her log-in information, she pulled up a specific file, and began to fill it out, slowly and methodically. Once finished, she skimmed it over one final time from end to start, hesitating briefly as she reached the title that headed it. "Transfer Request Form: Combat Service." She shook her head slightly, as though to clear any possible regrets, then with a click, sent the form on its way.


    OOC: Requesting active military command on the front lines for Lisa C. Zelenko, preferably a cruiser command or higher on the front lines, but even a fighter will do. Failing that, since I can only imagine how HQ would view someone who suddenly transfers from the survey to combat branches after losing a family member, survey.
    “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
    -T.S. Elliot

    Fleet HQ - 30th of June 2065.

    "The Commodore will see you now Lietenant!"

    Lt. Lisa Culise Zelenko looked up startled but quickly gathered herself and smiled at the Captain. "Thank you, Sir" she responded while briskly entering the office.

    She strode towards the desk in standing before the window looking out over the Massive Fleet Base. The Commodore stood silently facing the window and taking in the activity. Several ships was in sight in various stages of overhaul/maintenance. "Reporting as ordered, Sir" she crisply said while saluting.

    "Try again Lietenant" the Commodore said with a smile while turning. Lt. Zelenko blushed red when she heard the feminine voice and quickly corrected. "My Apologies Maam. I was under the impression that I would be meeting Commodore Miller."

    Commodore Georgia Bruce smiled and pointed at the chair after returning the salute. "No offence taken Lietenant. I only arrived 2 days ago and my appointment to Survey Officer is not yet official. It will not be until tomorrow when I take over the duties, but in this specific case I arranged with Dylan that I would take the interview!" She turned again towards the window and was quiet for a while. Lt. Zelenko waited patiently.

    "Can you see the ship there?" Commodore Bruce asked and pointed at the Santana II class ship undergoing overhaul. "Yes Maam! It's the Thor Heyerdahl. Commodore Wilkinsons ship."

    "Good! And the other one over there? - Lt. Zelenko followed the finger and hesitated before answering. "I'm not certain Maam, but it looks to be one of the Slayers."

    "Correct again. To be more specific, It's the CL Simon Bolivar. It is back from a 2 year detachment in Alpha Centauri as colony defence. And yes - It is almost 30 years old."

    Commodore Bruce turned around and sat down at the desk. She turned to the display in front of her. "Now, what are we going to do with you....."

    "Maam, I want to fight the aliens and avenge my father!"

    "At least you have your priorities set!" Commodore Bruce Chuckled. "Now sit back and I'll explain why I put it this way."

    Lisa Zelenko looked puzzled but did as she was told and Commodore Bruce reached for some papers on the desk.

    "You did well in school. Not just well, but very well. And that have gathered attention. I have here a request for your service from Captain Page. Do you know her?"

    "I don't remember hearing of her, Maam." Commodore Bruce laughed and continued. "I would have been surprised if you had. I'll tell you her story then. She's a former Fighter Pilot and Carrier Captain. But she has been in Alpha Centauri aboard the Georg Armstrong Custer for the last 5 years. And she want you to join her in her Taskforce of Terraformers."

    "Maam, I.." Lt. Zelenko started but Commodore Bruce stopped her with a raised hand. "Wait a minute Lietenant" she ordered. "That is not the only request we have here."

    Commodore Bruce smiled and pointed back at the display. "You are quite popular you know for a 21 year old lietenant. Captain Page want you as a Terraformer. Commodore King who have taken over my old Survey Team have requested you. Commodore Miller also wanted you for a Survey Command in Space."

    "And Vice Admiral Admiral Campbell want you for her Carrier Command in the Navy." Commodore Bruce said. Lt. Zelenko stiffened at that. Vice Admiral Gemma Campbell, second in command of The Paradoxian Navy and Senior officer in space still flew from the same command fighter she had done for the last 16 years and was an institution in herself. And 20 years younger than Vice Admiral Boris ze Spider II most officers expected her to move up to top spot when it became available at some point.

    "Now the question you have to consider Lietenant. Since you are top of your class from this years graduation, you can more of less pick or choose your track. And since I have become part of the staff I now know a bit more about the upcoming rebuild. I therefore need some information from you as I offer you some choices."

    Commodore Bruce leaned back in the chair and fixated the young lietenant with her stare before continuing. "The Santana II class will be retired and the class is as an end. Instead the new Heitman Class Survey Cruiser will be introduced. If you choose to go this route I will assign you to a Geology Team until ready, but that will probably take years."

    "The second option is to join Fighter Command and pilot a F2-Lucifer and the coming F3's. This will perhaps lead to carrier command in the future. And the Third option is to join the Battle Fleet. If you choose to go that way, the CL Simon Bolivar will be waiting for you. However, CL Simon Bolivar will also be retired along with the other Slayers at the rebuild. Same as the Guardian's and the F1's. But you would take your chances along with everyone else at that point."

    Lietenant Zelenko thought for all of 2 minutes before responding. "I'll take the Cruiser, Maam!"

    Commodore Bruce smiled. "I thought you would Captain. She is waiting for you and my Chief of Staff will have your orders prepared along with your new insignias."

    As Commodore Bruce stood up she extended her hand and continued: "I think that you would have made a wonderfull Survey Officer, but I understand your choice. Good Luck Captain."

    Captain Zelenko took the offered hand and nodded. "Thank you Maam. I will do my best!"


    Captain Lise Culise Zelenko appointed CO CL Simon Bolivar - Crew Training 200, Fleet Maneuver 150, Survey 10%, Terraforming 20%, Fighter Operations 10%.

    Since we are getting close to the next rebuild, I will reveal some of my plans for the Paradoxian Navy for the years to come.

    Battle Fleet:

    Battle Fleet will be headed by 6 Battlecruisers of the Spicilum-A and -B classes as per the previous revealed designs. The designs will be updated as the Engines become available to feature new armor and weapons as well. These will be Enercy Weapon platforms.

    Supporting these will be 6 Serapis Class Heavy Cruisers and 6 Sirocco-III Class Cruisers. The Long Range Missiles will originate from these 2 classes.

    Escorting will be the Brutus Class Light Cruisers and the Nirbhik-IV Class Destroyers. In Time, Anvils will be added as well.


    Carrier Fleet:

    Carrier Fleet will remain almost identical as today and consist of:

    6 Blue Emu-II Class Carriers with F3-Shardul Fighters of various designs embarked.

    A number of Farnese-II class Escort carriers will be commisioned as well for colony defence duties.

    Escorts will be the Brutus' and Nirbhik-IV as well.

    In Time Nautilus' will be added to the mix as well.


    Support Fleet:

    Maryjane-II Class Tankers, Tai-Sho-II Class Colliers and Nitzhon-II Class Fleet Scouts will be on call for both command tracks.

    Our Freighters will be updated to the new Talron-III Class which are faster and smaller than our current freighters. Larger Freighters are also planned.

    Anuket-II ships are planned to speed up the exploration and joining of jump gates around Sol.

    Additional Gedry will be ordered as well, but not with new engines.

    Gudrid-II Class Civilian Tankers will be ordered along with additional Snakes and Honduras II.

    And the New Heitman Class will take over Survey duty from the Santana II's. This will be new constructions.

    Haai Class Rocks are also considered.


    Fortress Command:

    A new track which will receive the following:

    Facesmasher's
    Partisan's
    Apache's


    I trust this meet the Council's approval and kindly ask you all to support the bill authorizing these constructions and expenses when it is presented in the council.

    Hm, why exactely are we putting heavy armor and shields on our carriers?
    I allways thought the mission of a carrier was to stay out of harms way, play "I am not here, I am not here, look somewhere else" and let his fighters do the killing.

    Also, the 12cm lasers on the Brutus seem an odd choice. Asuming we have capacitor 3 (I mean, we have ICF-Drives, we should have at least cap-3), a 15cm would give the same ROF, better range/damage and same mass.

    Aside from that, I like them

    Ok, perhaps a somewhat larger escort, that can combine a PD-turret or two with the AMMs would be nice?

    Regarding the carriers, let's just say that I have lost carriers I thought secure before, so it's a matter of Part Better safe than sorry and part roleplay.

    And no - We don't have capacitator 3 yet, but it will come before long. At that point, I will probably cut back to 10cm instead, since the primary function is PD. The Major Combatants are the Spiculums...

    Escorts in my opinion should not be much larger than this, unless I take a "Howard Anderson" Monitor into space at some point. I'm not rejecting the idea...

    I thought that C2 10cm lasers had a 5 sec recharge rate already? IIRC C5 is 5 second recharge for 15cm lasers, at which point I highly recommend them, as they've twice the range of 10cms for the same RoF and you can fit something like 4x10cm for the same size as 3x15cm. Depending on missile speed this means extra shots against the incoming missile, and the shots closer in will have higher accuracy with the 15cms than with the 10cms, unless the BFC for the 10cms has a much greater range than the lasers.

    The other way to go is to use Gauss PD. Plus, I'd love to see a Gauss festooned vessel of ours close to point blank range to engage the enemy...

    The wish have been noted. I only have 1 question for you.

    Would you be willing to pursuade Lord Strange to start working on Gauss Technology over Explosives?

    As for Captain randakar II - that sounds just like my kind of gal
    A factory bonus of 30% though - isn't that the kind of person you put on, say, gate constructor vessels, normally?

    @ Randy - Yep, but I have 1 with 40%+ on our only constructor. And a few other with 30% so...

    If the Brutus class are intended as Laser PD escorts, I would suggest faster Beam fire controls and turreted Lasers. Right now, you get a penalty against any missile moving faster than 6000 kps, due to the limited FC speed. I generally use a few Quad turrets and 4x speed FCs on my Beam PD vessels. That means fewer shots, but much more likely to hit.

    *grumbles* - Why do I always forget about turrets...

    Oh Amadeus... Time for you to get cracking on those before we lock designs in place.

    Good catch, I didn't look closely at the designs I'll admit...

    IMHO Steve should buff the beam fire control range and speeds a bit. I seem to always use 4x setting because unless I invest a lot more in fire control tech than laser tech, my fire controls are much slower in tracking speed, and shorter ranged, than the guns.
