    19 KB Corp Quest 23 Plasma !UHUuLXLjhk 09/20/09(Sun)22:02 No.5944838  
    Welcome back to Corp Quest.
    In this number-crunching quest, each poster is a member of a tiny subcontracting firm that works for TradeStar, a super-corporation in the far future. Your job is initiate a massive mining project on a planet that TradeStar has unofficially named 'Hajjar'. Once you have reached the level of production stated in the first thread, your mission will be complete and you will be allowed to leave the planet, with enough cash to keep you in luxury for the rest of your lives.
    However, there are problems. The natives are hostile and there are several other corporations looking to exploit the planet and looking to exploit you. How you deal with these threats is up to you.
    Recently, many things have happened. You have personally overseen the destruction of the central brain of the virus and you have extracted all sorts of technology that you were not meant to. You have by far exceeded the expectations of your employers and in a way that they will not like. You've successfully stranded a group of pirates on an island. AlphaRange has managed to reach their slave quota and are leaving the planet; the subcontractors that once worked with them now wish to team up with you. You're beginning to figure out what sort of ship you want to construct as well. You're also putting a major dent on the crashed Mothership, slowly disassembling it completely with your massive mining program - only 70% of the structure remains. All in all, things in Corp Quest are about to reach an end-game.

    Before I continue, however, I would like the gentlemen who want to contribute to this quest to post. After I am sure a couple of people are interested, I will begin.

    "Well, once the mission was over, I was meant to call in the dropships so that all of the volunteers could be shipped off world again.
    "Except since I am in charge of the operation... They kind of need a code I have if they want to get off world."

    Ok, twenty cloaked drones (The type that Samson designed) with whatever equipment they might to to extract stuff, and lasers for defense. Make a transport drone to take them there, VTOL. Can they get in the same way we got out?
    >> Subcontractor Helus 09/20/09(Sun)22:39 No.5945307

    Also, I suspect that the assassin bot wing is activately creating more assassin bots as we kill them. So why don't we form a attack squad and blow a hole into that wing to stop them?

    No. The brain had hacked into the local mainframe and had produced a defensive system for itself and was able to control the drones
    You can destroy all remaining data on the machines in the research facility. Do you wish to do this?
    Jo: "Well... I suppose they could be. I mean, despite the fact that you originally came here to defile the planet, you've helped the world more than you've harmed it. You're far more efficient than Uni-Peace ever was. I guess some of them might feel the same way about you the way I do, while most might not. You thinking of employing some of them?"
    Dr. AS: "Eh, not my speciality, but I know a few things. What are you interested in, kinetic or energy?"
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/20/09(Sun)22:45 No.5945373
    Well, I figure if we try to make a mark for survival, we could try going for one massive ship, or several mediums sized ones.

    Massive Ship:

    1,000,000 TONS Cargo Space
    250,000 UNITS Fuel Tank
    100 Persons Living Space
    100 Synth Space
    10 Onboard Construction Facilities
    300 Locomotion Slots
    150 Weapon Slots
    2 Examination Facilities
    25 Hyperweapon Slots
    2 Onboard Tech. Labs
    2 Onboard Heavy Construction Facilities
    5x Reinforced Plating (also with kinetic and energy shields when we have them, as well as radiation shielding, which we NEED to develop. Also, cloaking technology.)
    4 FTL Engine Slot

    Smaller ship:

    500,000 TONS Cargo Space
    100,000 UNITS Fuel Tank
    50 Persons Living Space
    50 Synth Space
    5 Onboard Construction Facilities

    the brain could have made a synthetic copy of itself in the mainframe or some other kind of crazy shenanigans. I say we take a good look at the research facilities systems and if any of them seem tapered with, or have information that could be used to recreate the brain or the virus, I say we destroy it.
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/20/09(Sun)22:49 No.5945438
    Also, can I get some input on this? If we're going to build any ships, we'll need to get some details decided on. We can choose the particular weapons once the hard details are chosen.

    Also, Plasma, what's the progress on our Plan B clones from Lemmington?
    >> Plasma !UHUuLXLjhk 09/20/09(Sun)22:50 No.5945444
    You don't have combat-sampler hybrids. That's Lemmington's territory.
    Also, it is possible but they also might've discovered the silo gate as well.
    S70: "The monkeys."
    Assassin drones are no longer operational - the brain was controlling them.
    Samplers are already searching but producing harvester-hauler combination for gas pockets.
    >> Subcontractor Sangeyla !!ko2snWT+ZTh 09/20/09(Sun)22:51 No.5945459
    Oh, yeah. Well 20 sampler drones and 5 with lasers for defense.
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/20/09(Sun)22:51 No.5945460
    Going beyond that, I say we take any research/schematic data we could use, save for any dangerous shit ala the nanites and central brain.

    Scan scan scan the data we take. Have Samson look through it with his super speedy robot language to double and triple and quadruple check it.

    Erase everything else.

    ALSO. Since we have more than 1 Samson in action right now, deactivate the one that we started up for the missile attack. If he objects, EMP him. We don't need any crazy SHENANIGANS.
    >> Subprocessor 625 09/20/09(Sun)22:52 No.5945484

    Jo: "We had a few reverse-engineers but I think you killed or enslaved the majority of them on your raid. We might still have some left."
    "There's a little problem with that. We're still trying to create shields that you can't fire into but that you can fire out of. So, for example, if you design a shield to block the wavelength of a laser, it'll block your lasers as well.
    "In any case, energy shields can be made to prevent heat transfer to anything on the other side of the shield and they can be specified to block certain wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. What wavelengths would you like this energy shield to block?"
    It does have all the information and research data on the brain and the virus saved.

    I think the speed calc for ships was (total weight/(locomotion x 2)) but I can't remember.

    If that's the case, then the ship Sang suggested would have a speed rating of: 253.75

    And I think that was kind of average if not slow. We should definitely double, triple, or quad that.

    Tonnage/(Loco-slot number * 2.5) was what I finally decided was balanced.

    The locomotion type you fit in changes things a lot though.

    For example:
    Propulsion Thrusters are incredibly slow in atmosphere, hovering requires no fuel and increase the speed category by one.
    Ionic Engines decrease the speed category by half BUT they also half fuel requirement.

    Actually, for ships.

    We should make a really big one, or some smaller sized ones for intimidation purposes.


    We should make a very modest sized, if not several super small, super fast, super stealthy ones for ourselves.

    Small, fast, EXTREMELY stealthy. Cloaked. Hopefully, if things go badly, TradeStar focuses on the bigger one(s) and doesn't notice us in our small cruisers as we make our escape. We could put out clones in the big ship as the diversion.

    It turns out Centauri Synthetics got a pretty bad deal because when the ship crashed and when you shot at the thrusters and the engine, you kind of ignited a lot of fuel.

    Here's a little diagram of my small escape ship plan.

    If/when TradeStar confronts us, we've got that big ass ship up there to distract them. We put our clones onboard, already dead, or braindead, or whatever. That way if the ship is blown down, we're dead in TradeStar's eyes.

    But really, we're in the smaller ships, cloaked to the max, and hiding either around the moons or on the opposite side of the planet.

    Also, we should boobytrap our HQ's and the TradeStar bunker in case we have to abandon the planet.
    >> Plasma !UHUuLXLjhk 09/20/09(Sun)23:56 No.5946385
    Another tech. lab could be built for this.

    Also, since you're in the process of inventing an energy shield, you can also design the shield so it also blocks high frequency rays - like gamma rays.

    And since you're also dedicated to blocking out lasers, it also blocks out a portion of the spectrum. No red light will be able to go through the shield. Essentially, this will render your sensors partially colour-blind.

    That's the problem if you design an energy shield that blocks out practically anything and everything, like the one around the brain.

    On one hand, nothing gets in, nothing comes out.

    On the other hand, an energy shield that prevents heat from passing through the shield and that stops every frequency in the damn EM spectrum basically renders all of your ships sensors useless and its communication useless.

    Weapon slot. A single shield covers the entire ship.

    As for your raid, you're starting with the various gases. The various primates become aware of a distant hum slowly draw closer and closer - and then the gas falls and the gas begins to spread. Those not yet engulfed by the gas however, take advantage of it. Dozens of them scream and point at where the rising clouds are disturbed by the intakes of your VTOL drones and they begin to throw stones. Small rocks and larger rocks, the majority of which rattle through the intakes harmlessly. But then, some get jammed, disturbing the process, a handful of drones falling from the heavens and crashing. More and more stones are being thrown, the air full of gas and rock. The stupid monkeys are actually inflicting some damage on your drones, throwing the sand they collected up into the air to help spot the cloaked drones.

    This is the last bastion of the natives - and they're not about to go down without a fight.

    The Secretary AI is an intelligent but highly restricted sentient AI. Basically used for taking care of its owner and managing communications for its owner.
    The Planner AI is even more restricted - and even more intelligent. It optimally plans out every single detail, accounting for every tiny little flaw and every possible thing that could go wrong.
    The Geologist AI is the ultimate AI when it comes to maximum efficiency in construction.
    Mobile habitats are habitats capable of moving between locations.
    Super habitats can house a thousand instead of two hundred.
    Ration synthesizers manifest basic rations and basic food.

    Samson needs to sneak around and find out whatever the fuck it is they found. Discretion is key. If he does find out what it is, he needs to contact us and say so. If there's some kind of research or notes about it, he should copy them down. Stealing it would be pretty obvious.

    Samson 70 isn't transmitting anything - no communication at all. Not even a camera feed. The drone is officially operating completely independently of your systems as he explores the research facility - all sorts of rare plants are being confined, sliced open corpses of the various primates of various genders in various conditions are all on display to Samson, there are dozens of warheads filled with all sorts of payloads and finally, an incredibly secure glass chamber that contained what looks like an unearthed generator of some sort - a fuel compartment where the process is started, but another compartment that matter is inserted within. Several cables lead out for it, obviously meant to be connected to other structures.

    Notes indicate that the generator allows for the highly controlled annihilation of matter, converting it into energy at a rate that most benefits the person in possession of the facility. Of course, the matter-to-energy transfer isn't 100% efficient, but it still far above anything that the other factions are currently capable of.

    Samson 70 downloads this information and prepares to leave while Jeremy waves his hand, dismissing what you're saying. "No need for you to worry - we're the scientists, we'll take care of this stuation completely. We understand the concept of what you want, yes - the starship without a pilot. Now, is there anything else that you want? Any technology that interests you? Apart from our latest find, of course - I apologize, but you really can't have access to that."

Is this possible?

    Then, research tiny (coin sized) drones with heavy cloaking, cameras, wall-crawling abilities, and the ability to detonate in a large ball of plasma (or something else destructive, if more practical).

    >> Plasma !UHUuLXLjhk 09/21/09(Mon)02:14 No.5947955
    This is possible.

    However, they would be so complex and have so much complex machinery that it'd take an entire day to make just one at a construction facility.

    Really ham it up again with the laughter, fun and jovial. Like I'm this guy's best friend in the world. "Well to be honest, this new find, it's got us interested. Claiming it's all kinds of wonderful and all that. Any clue as to what it is? Obviously you can't share it with us, if it's as great as you say it is. And we respect that. We're all about trade secrets to, ya know. Ha ha ha. But I don't think there are any rules against hints. Eh?" Give him the little shoulder nudge and wink. Real friendly like.

    Keep up the act as long as I can until Samson returns.

    Regardless of if he says anything, inquire about what they'd be willing to share, "Because honestly here, depending on how things turn out in the next few weeks, we may either be dead, or setting up on some backwater planet lightyears away. And we could use anything to make the experience a bit more hospitable." Real friendly like.

    Miniaturized spy drones would be worth the long construction process.

    >I mean, we're not really into biotech.
    I feel that this should not be allowed to stand in the way of our acquiring it and throwing it into our archives. We're ditching the planet, and since we're planning to burn bridges with TradeStar we have little reason to keep our technology proprietary. Might as well take everything we can get- it might prove useful in future, unanticipated applications.

    >This is possible.
    >However, they would be so complex and have so much complex machinery that it'd take an entire day to make just one at a construction facility.
    Considering our available resources, I'm not inclined to quibble over such things. Please begin research on both projects, at new labs if necessary.

    "It's incredible - but it's honestly safer if you don't find out anything about it. At this stage, we can't risk anyone else finding out about this - this could put our nation above all of the others. Look, if you let us get this technology out of the system, we'll put a good word in it for you with the Terilian Sovereignty. You'd be able to ask one of the most powerful nations in the galaxy for favours. How about that?"

    Also, when talking about the final part, here's what Jeremy says:
    "Well, I can't promise luxury, but there are several things we can do. Supplies can take up a large amount of space so we can instead offer you basic nutrient injections, which is what we do with our drones - much more cost effective. Also, we can offer some basic recycling technology, cyrogenic technology to preserve biological goods for long periods of time, clone servants to help you get throughout the dya, so on. There's all sorts of technology that we can put up on offer."

    >Irony, you and I come up with some pretty good inventions. We should pool our resources.
    Thank you. As for pooling resources, we do both work for Plasma Limited, do we not?

    Anyway, the potential for future political favors is a nice one- if we do attempt to carve out our own empire elsewhere, it's possible that we could use that to wrangle some form of legitimacy from at least one nation. And we do have fusion already, so while antimatter would be delightful, it's probably not essential...

    I would really like to get schematics for some of Lemmington's cloning technology, all the AI types that we can get our hands on, and whatever medical technology we can get from whoever has it. With those in hand, I will feel that we have a much more well-rounded set of capabilities while leaving the planet.

    Nutrient supplements
    Recycling technology
    Any particular clones that you might want for any particular reason

    In exchange for technology that you might have, they'd be willing to offer:
    Nitrogen Freezing technology
    Cloning technology
    Lobotomy technology
    Headcrab technology
    Neuro-Haywire technology
    Contagion technology
    Lethal nerve gas technology
    Sampler dart technology

    Let's take the freebies, 20 redshirt clones to run the dangerous bits of the ship we'll be making, plus Haywire and Nitrogen.

    Everything else sounds like we've got something that could do the job better, or really really illegal.

    I believe that we already have some form of mind-machine interfacing technology, do we not? That seems the most essential requirement for that sort of thing.

    >There's all sorts of technology that we can put up on offer.
    I would like the following from Lemmington:
    Nitrogen Freezing technology
    Cloning technology
    Lobotomy technology
    Headcrab technology
    Neuro-Haywire technology
    Contagion technology
    Lethal nerve gas technology
    Sampler dart technology
    -Advanced medical technology, for replacement limbs and such, plus anything else- we're going where we will be our own doctors, after all
    -Biological customization technology, if they have it- for making people/clones larger, smaller, faster, smarter, stronger, etc.

    Here is what I am NOT willing to trade Lemmington:
    -EMP technology of any sort
    -Sensor technology of any sort
    -Cloaking technology of any sort
    -Drone designs larger than superheavy

    Aside from that, they can make whatever requests.
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/21/09(Mon)02:41 No.5948201

    >Everything else sounds like we've got something that could do the job better, or really really illegal.
    I have no problem with having "illegal" schematics in our data cores. As for things we have that can do the job better... why not pick them up anyway? We might come up with some form of creative use, or we might be able to trade away the lesser capabilities to someone else we meet in the future. It costs us nothing at all to give Lemmington a few schematics, and we gain new tech for it. Why not?
    >> Subcontractor Archer 09/21/09(Mon)02:45 No.5948244

    Just because we have massive superweapons doesn't mean less powerful alternatives don't have their value. That's just an example, of course. But we can trade lesser tech to others.
