Re: [Dresden Files / Sg-1] God's Eye

I completely agree. Reading that chapter brought flashbacks to some of the best SG-1 episodes. I do miss Carter in this, mainly because she'd be trying to figure out what makes Bob "tick" while he'd be trying to talk her into taking her top off (or something along those lines). :twisted: Can't wait ...

Re: A Different Directive (Star Trek)

I don't see the chowderheads allowing the impact to happen, either. They wouldn't reveal themselves to the inhabitants of the planet, but they might arrange for the asteroid to be knocked off course by a "rogue" asteroid that nudged it aside, or cause some outgassing that pushed the rock into a safe...

Re: [Dresden Files / Sg-1] God's Eye

Heh. I was wondering if we were going to see an O'Neill-Dresden snarkfest. It does not disappoint. Can't wait to see how it goes when everyone else gets involved. Enjoying this immensely. Keep it up.

Well, to be honest that's usually how Harry's misadventures tend to go. He generally doesn't get any breaks until everything's said and done. And sometimes not even then.

Re: Neo-Galactica RAR

Raptors are often used as scouts because they are small and have a long range. Fitted out with Cylon jump drives, they are actually capable of traveling huge distances rather quickly. If the scouts find computer mainframes, factory machinery, robotics, stockpiles of refined metals and fuels, etc......

Re: Neo-Galactica RAR

The biggest problem I see if this is the remains of a ragtag fleet of whatever could escape. The people on it are a mix of military and random lucky civilians. Are these people even going to remember about the steam age and have any chance of replicating its technology before their existing tech di...

Re: [WIP]Superman: Super Patriot. (working title)

I agree. It's an interesting start, and I'm curious to see how this take on the Big Blue BoyScout goes, but there definitely comes a point of being too descriptive.

"We don't know yet, but we think it is a weapon." Gresstise handed him another image. It showed a vessel of some kind. It had a bulbous head at the end of a neck with a wider body.

Lots of twists and turns, so many that I'm having trouble keeping track of who's who (not that this is a bad thing!). Should be interesting to see how this all comes together and what fallout (pun intended!) there is from the fact that someone brought a nuke to the party. One has to wonder if Tauria...

Those that take a pounding are the ones that have their plot shields up. Tell me about it. I think one of the most egregious ones was in the "Generations" movie.

Interesting choice of teleport location. How did they miss the metlabomb? Those aren't small and I didn't think they had any scanner blocking metals in them.

if the Warp exists at all in Trekverse, if it functions the same, if the Gods themselves exist or are as powerful. But if any of those are true, Geordie and co fiddling around with a milllenia-old Warp field can't end well. Well, since our rampaging warrior somehow wound up in the Trek universe, I ...

A battle had begun over Earth, two combatants fighting over a blissfully unaware world. Nice. Very nice. Although I have to wonder how unaware they would remain with a battle of this sort going on in low orbit. The internet and social media wasn't quite as pervasive at that time as it is now, but I...

Sadly I suspect the Syrtis Fusiliers tests would probably notice that, so the exact ploy wouldn't work here.

After everything else that had happened, I would think they'd be a bit more leery about what surprises that supposedly outmatched Taurian fighter group might have up its sleeve.
