    You're Sleipnir Interstellar, a subsidiary of a megacorporation known as Solutions Tactical Finance Unlimited. Assisting you are another subsidiary, Aperture Science. Using their intuitive shower curtain technology, you have revolutionized inter-planetary transport amongst so many other things.

    Rival megacorporations include Alien's Weyland-Yutani, Avatar's RDA, WoD's Pentex, SMAC's Morgan Industries, Bladerunner's Tyrell Corporation and Fifth Element's Zorg Corporation.

    Sleipnir Interstellar first came to being in 2120. At 2130, an event took place called the Texas Impact. One of your portal facilities landed in agricultural Texas after being sabotaged and there were mysterious and enraging rumours of "portal burns". Luckily, your company survived than. Since then, you've entered a business deal with Morgan Industries, you've discovered dark, dirty secrets of Pentex's "Umbra", you've discovered the dull world of area, with high gravity and a permanent volcanic winter and Neptune has been taken hostage by space pirates. The year is now 2150.

    So, gentlemen, do you want to play a game?

    That deal was:
    - If the pirates are dealt with by 2156, you give the ships to them since they paid for them to be made.
    - If the pirates are dealt with by you at 2156, you can keep them and get $500b.

    It all depends, really.

    Can we build a new military focused R&D ? Spend like 100-200bil$ and have them exclusively research war tech ? Will it give any advantages (like speeding up military tech?) or is it better to just expand our R&D again?

    Year 2150:
    Space combat portal research is complete! Ships can now have:
    - Portal Cannon Modules: Essentially allows for instantaneous boarding if the portal projectile hits. Costs $10b per module
    - Displacement Plating: Experimental plating for starships that has a large probability of generating portals where physical projectiles are predicted to hit. $100b cost.
    Your R&D department needs more research. Lady Deidre will arrive with information on Chiron biology are will be able to assist your R&D department by 2152. On that same date, research on Aresian Written Language should also be completed by the Aresian R&D. However, your main laboratory has got free time for you to fill up! So, think up a project.
    You have begun construct six warships that will be ready by 2156. I have already stated the terms of their construction.
    The Neptune hostage situation is growing stagnant - nothing important is happening.
    Nothing is going on on Ares.
    Nothing is going on on Hermes either.
    It's all fairly calm, to tell the truth.

    Have Hermes CY1 begin construction of a system warship (no interstellar drive). Just 2 missile launchers, 2 laser PD batteries, and 4 mass drivers. We want to maintain the ability to Orbital Strike within the AC system.

    As for R&D, do we have the portable portal technology shrunk down to the point where a warship can carry a portal generator so that it can act as the other end of a staging area? Essentially, we have lots of drones, missiles, and whatever at a portal facility, that we send through to the warship when it gets to the battle zone. That way we can save on space and mass by keeping those things off of the ship itself.

    A thought on combat ships modules is the Vectored Thrust section. Combined with portal technology and mounting large engines on key maneuver points you don't have to worry about the hazardous easy to hit fuel lines because it's being directly portal'd to the engines. Should prove very powerful for smaller ships and may even help larger ones.

    Also a suggestion for two of the heavy freighters to load up supplies and equipment needed in Hermes and Ares in AC and heading back out towards them. If we don't have an idea for the other two just rent them like we have been.

    That's what I thought, I just wanted to clarify it with Plasma.

    We might need some actual ground (well, space ground) troops for retaking Neptune.

    We can blow their ships out of orbit without to much difficulty, but it could end up turning into a siege with the pirates on the stations, and that will put various assets in Neptune (personal, and orbital stations) at risk.

    Doing both of these. One is dedicated to building automated military equipment, one is dedicated to ship-building. Cryo-freighters will be shipping the military equipment until stated otherwise. This takes little to no time in the big scheme of things, so they'll count as idle.

    I'm for the portal hangar idea. It turns a single ship equipped with it into an entire base facility's worth of missiles, drones, and ground troops. Imagine one of these combined with a boarding module: the troops won't have to be on the ship itself. They can chill at a staging area on Earth, then when it's Go Time, the go through the portal to the ship, then from the ship to the target.

    Is it possible to research opening portals in space?
    As in, rather then shooting the portal at solid matter, opening a portal in open space?
    I don't really care if this would only let us make short jumps at a time. Anything that lets us cut the distance we have to travel is a good thing.

    i'm... neutral-to-negative on the portal hangar. I mean, it'll only really be effective inside of Sol, where we have massive resources that can be transferred about.

    Anywhere else we'd want to use it, the efficiency gain would be pretty much eclipsed by both how much we spent on it, and the cost of the supply train to HAVE things to portal around.

    Alright, when 2153 rolls round we might want to consider that to give our force more bulk.

    Besides that, since it's all modular we can just refit it on one of our warships once this is all over.

    I was thinking, if a portal's edge works like it would logically seem to me it does, then a portal's edge would be the most effective cutting tool in the universe, because one side of the item goes in the portal, the other side goes on without the rest.

    Imagine a missile that does this. It uses a portal 'shield' until it is close, then twists the portal sideways and slices right though an enemy ship.

    Sorry. Got something to eat. I need to stop with these delays.

    Your knowledge of Aresian culture is limited. You have access to what are probably only a handful of countries.
    The main organization is a union of states run as a sort of technocracy, where those with the most intelligent concepts and creations are accepted as leadership. Many of the transcriptions show much stagnation and argument and a severe lack of agreement and a severe quantity of bickering and evidence that most settlements that are not large towns are left to their own devices. The scientists have translated this to something similar to "the New People", although the faction dates back over five hundred years, they are heralded as revolutionary. They are to the North-East.
    Another important faction is much smaller. A theocratic dictatorship. The "Children of Sun and Stone", according to translation. They are fanatical about the highly reactive metals that are common in the earth of Ares that they use to produce fire and wish to learn its secrets. They also believe that the sun is an all powerful god that produced it. They are the most technologically advanced faction, from the translations, and most likely the most unified. They are to the East.
    Then there are the "the Blessed", believe are equally theocratic but much less organized and the least advanced faction. Even more splintered than the new people, their religion is very typical and focuses primarily around a single deity and a single afterlife.
    All three super factions are warring.

    Cryo-Freighter 5 (Tau Ceti) (Colony Vessel, Destination: Tau Ceti, 2156)
    Cryo-Freighter 8 (Tau Ceti) (Colony Vessel, Destination: Tau Ceti, 2172)
    Cryo-Freighter 9 (Tau Ceti) (Colony Vessel, Destination: Tau Ceti, 2172)

    Those are the cryo-vessels destined for Tau Ceti.

    Heavy Freighter 2 has arrived with Hermesium on Earth.

    MNU and the Zorg Corporation have launched a joint venture to immediately eliminate the pirate problem with their own battleships.
    The pirates have been eliminated and the two megacorporations have reaped the reward and love of everyone.
    The pirate drones have had the origin of construction traced from various pieces of evidence on them. Their locations of construction have been traced to third world construction sites and Sleipnir Interstellar construction factories.

    Additionally, who else thinks that this chaos would be a good time to start playing hardball with Zorg and land a few commando teams to steal their mainframes. The entire mainframes. With Portals.

    Like I just said, the construction logs have mysteriously been editted.

    The construction of those drones was requested by an unknown little terrorist face company.

    Accuse everybody! FIRE EVERYTHING! Claim the UN was involved in setting you up. There's a clear conspiracy by MNU, Zorg, and pretty much everyone else to gain complete and total space domination.
    It's all a lie, everything's a conspiracy, man.

    Give S.T.F.U $350 billion, instead of the requested $250 billion.

    Reveal Texas Impact information and the other Mega-Corporation involvement. Release research logs UP TO the Weapon Development. They don't need to know about anything after that, because it doesn't pertain to the issue at hand.

    Also, if we haven't done this yet, inform S.T.F.U of Umbral technology, as well as it's dangers.

    Wait, we haven't finished building the battleships, they were due for 2156, and I'm betting we stopped construction once shit hit the fan.

    Let them have the battleships, half completed. They'll probably reclaim all the money we used to build them any way.

    We must restore the public faith in us somehow.
    Put PR on work.

    Tell the world that we have always been honourful from beginning. We never have tried to mess up anyone. We selflessly committed ourself to removing Neptune pirates. All the while, these "terrorist" organizations have been working against us.
    Something like that.

    With the shit they have pulled (killed millions in Texas, Nuptune taaken hostage, suppling terrorists on Earth) they should be taken down permanently. No way they could live after this (unless they go all-criminal).

    Demand an investigation of the destroyed ship in EE by MNU, Tyrell and/or Zorg, as we have proof humans destroyed the ship. If we do it publically it could work for our advantage.
