    Send Alpha Range our pirate captives.

    Begin reverse engineering the pirate ship FTL drives.

    Also investigate those ships to see if they have anything interesting. Use some of the humanoid drones.

    Send our slavers down to the city of Gurruk and begin the anti-diaspora.

    Don't we already have Ion engines? I thought we purchased the schematics from TradeStar.

    Speaking of which, what technologies do TradeStar have to offer us? Presumably we'll be abandoning them before they come by to collect the metal, so let's rip them off for everything they have.

    Assassin Drones:
    The better the cloaking, the better.
    The better the sensors, the better.
    Humanoid drone.
    Replace limbs with power blades.
    Must be light.

    The result is a fast moving, incredibly agile and incredibly stealthy drone that is lethal in close quarters. It can't stand to being hit, however.

    Also, from the research facility:
    You gain plasma gun schematics.
    You gain improved sensor schematics.

    Okay, so I want to increase metal and gas harvesting to maximum levels. We have very little left in the way of planetary opponents that can seriously threaten us, so focusing on production should be acceptable now.

    And here's what I want to build for our flagship. Pic related, it's the Mothership from Homeworld. The tech we really want for it is the instantaneous construction yards, but having shipboard harvesting and construction facilities would work.

    Explore the remaining land as there may be survivors or bases hidden that could be scavenged for tech. There should be mines and what not lying around that didn't get hit my the wormhole.
    And did we destroy the base on the former virus island because it could either be used or dismantlement for later use. Another fusion battery plant already made sounds good to me.

    Yes. There's the small chance that their cloaking system depended upon relays or something. Unlikely, but...

    I was also thinking of writing up some fiction based on this.

    200 years in the future? Archer is still alive thanks to increased longevity and cloned body replacements, along with bionics. Starts with someone, a son maybe, admonishing him. Then Archer just smacks him down with knowledge. "You think me a wicked man? An evil man? I have done evil. But all in the name of good. Slavery, murder, genocide even. Yes, I have done these things. To prevent fates far worse.

    I lost my left lung when I was a young man. You've seen what a plague nanites are. Imagine if they'd been unleashed a hundred years earlier, before they were manageable. You're welcome. I lost my arm not much longer. Fighting for the independence and freedom you've come to expect." etc.

    That's entirely dependent upon the specifics of the setting. If weaponry and engines are small and powerful relative to defensive assets available, there's no reason to bring large, valuable ships anywhere near the enemy when you can throw tiny, cheap fighters at them instead and still have the firepower to deal damage.

    New Earth Missions is another employment agency just like AlphaRange that also invests in pharmaceuticals. It works very closely with the New Earth Republic, offering re-education drugs, pacification equipment, mind-altering technology and other fun things. However, it also offers millions of dedicated employees.

    Nebula Estates also works closely with the New Earth Republic, building new housing and living space on the frontier and on various planets, looking to claim land and convert it into living space. It also has a rather large robotics department that creates automatons as 'living aids'. These synthetics are as close to human as can possibly be, both physically and mentally, designed to look identical to you and I. They make drones look like piles of scrap in terms of technological prowess.

    Core Mining Inc. is a long standing industrial company that deals in industrial equipment and raw goods and is a major rival of TradeStar. While it's based in the Core Systems Alliance, it has no loyalty to any particular nation, although it does often make business deals with other CSA corporations. Core Mining Inc. mostly relies on gravitational, magnetic and sonic technology, with each workman in his exosuit being able to do a hell of a lot of work.

    Uh, FTL.

    Plasma weaponry, upgrading continuously until it's a hyperweapon.

    Uh, I don't remember what else.
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/19/09(Sat)03:42 No.5920401

    FTL, and then continuous upgrading of Plasma, Pulse lasers, and EMP until they're all at hyperweapon capabiltiy.

    You *have* been planning this out.

    Anyway, Let's dispatch Carriers and constructors to to set up bases in these two locations, Send a carrier, 4 freeman colossi, and 200 nonlethal combat haulers to the pirates island (all with cloaking, if possible).

    and... ooh, let's have a chat with Joanna, and open up a line to Uni-peace (at different times of day.)

    ALSO, build some nice recreational facilities. Swimming pools, all that.

    And some kind of outpost on those small islands on the far Eastern edge of the map.

    that far eastern island was where the pirates were based until we enslaved a bunch of them and stole their ships.

    I'd like to check it out with overwhelming firepower before we just plop down a base.
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/19/09(Sat)03:57 No.5920536
    Hrmm. Good thinking.

    Then we should definitely make ourselves a presence in the islands south of the two newest factions.

    >>4 freeman colossi

    We have 2, we don't really need more.

    Let's get converting fuel into fusion batteries. I'd say an initial batch of 25 should do without hurting our fuel supply.
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/19/09(Sat)04:01 No.5920575
    Yeah. Plus if we'll be building starships, we'll need a good supply of fusion cells.

    Like I said. Isolated area in case of an accident. Underground. Camouflaged entrance. VERY WELL DEFENDED.

    Can we ask AR for railguns/gauss cannons? And will uranium tipped railgun rounds still get stopped by a ship's kinetic shield (I'm assuming these are standard if someone is going to the expense of making a ship).

    Well we've already got almost a million units of metal already. If we want a fortress, we want a lot of capacity.

    Also, it will store the majority of our drones, probably.

    300,000 UNITS Fuel Tank
