    Year 2175:
    Research is complete! Military Application of Portals has been researched! You will need to select a new research topic. Please request research list.
    Military applications of Portals include:
    PORTAL ACCELERATOR: This is an improved form of mass driver. Slightly slower when it comes to firing, but far more powerful, with an increased range too. Costs $10b and 1 Module.
    DISINTEGRATOR: Long range and moving at the speed of light, this generates a portal within a portal, or two overlapping portals, in order to cause the immediate dispersal of matter. Essentially, it disintegrates anything in its path. It is capable of shooting a perfectly clean hole through any hull - although this does little damage unless it hits vital machinery.
    Three more anomalies in 40 Eridian. All from deep space, all going to deep space. Except for one, that suddenly changes course while rapidly deccelerating, slamming into the broken planet, as far as you are aware. There are no sign of damage.

    Balance: $309b
    Income: $309b

    Requesting recommended list of topics to research.
    >> Plasma !UHUuLXLjhk 07/21/10(Wed)22:21 No.11273758
    Research List:
    - Further Development of Energy Transfer Portals - Allows for increased efficiency.
    - Groupmind - Allows for a radio-connection between multiple human minds for improved group thinking.
    - Macro Sapience - Develop an understanding of "world minds" similar to those on Chiron and Pandora and an ability to recreate them.
    - Reflector Chassis - The ultimate development of the Deflector Chassis. Most expensive but reflects projectiles.
    - Stealth Possibilities - Research the possibility on stealth in space combat.

    If you have your own ideas, feel free to suggest them.

    Quite some time. Initially, the probe you sent was a crawler but it found no safe area to land on. So, instead, it's simply orbitting the sun.

    You could trigger the release mechanism, if you like. Try and have it land on the fractured, broken surface of the planet there.

    Although, this means that it will no longer be able to track movement in space. Its focus will be entirely ground-based.

    Leave it orbiting, more important to keep an eye on all the anomalies than to follow one specific one likely losing the probe and having no way to gain any specific knowledge from the exploration.

    I'm all for sending another probe there, but we may only have one shot as this crash site before the planet disintegrates, and I doubt our probe will be able to shift through the debris of an entire planet to look for these remains, if there are any.

    Look at it this way: we leave the probe in orbit, we can observe traffic in system, so can the pentex probe there as well. We'll be able to see all the ships coming and going, if there are any more that is.

    If we land, we will actually know what we're up against, we will have valuable information, information we can profit from, information that other people, like the UN (whose basically own pentex) would like to get their hands on.

    Market survey reveals that most people feel quite resentful towards your corporation and the other major organizations looming over them. Hatred of the system is a fad, after all, and once that won't fade with time. However, they are more than happy to purchase products designed by you that don't have your name on them. Essentially, slight subtlety is requred with the general public.
    Remenants of advanced organic life located on 40 Eridian planet.
    Remenants of advanced artificial structures located on 40 Eridian planet.
    Remenants of a relatively advanced civilization located on 40 Eridian planet.
    Nothing is alive. It's too cold. The atmosphere is falling apart and bleeding air into space. Almost no water is to be located - it has been drained away by the endless fissures in the surface. The planet has been rendered completely uninhabitable.
    Hundreds of thousands of angry rioters have poured into the radioactive remenants of New Shanghai and are blockading themselves in the half-repaired ruins of the city, executing UN resistance. They are well equipped and obviously well funded. The number of dead Peace Keepers has risen from 324 to 3957 in one year.

    Oh, not only that, but after researching Macro-Intelligence and World Minds, Eta Cassiopeiae is far enough away that we could try it there without risking some of our more prized operations, either.

    Hmmm... ask our marketing division if making superyachts/luxury cruise starships like the Axiom would be a profitable venture.

    No. That's just retarded.

    Well we could do that in AC, with the two barely habitable planets there; but it might be good to do this away from prying eyes, I agree.

    The only problem is that we don't have any Umbral terraforming yet, so I'd rather we held back on production until we at least had the tech queued.

    Time to loot 40 Eridian and get R&D on any of this Alien tech. First establish some kind of base, which means colonists.

    Generally, interstellar travel requires cryosleep if you don't want your bones to be rendered into jelly.

    Also, such cruises are only appreciated if they're allowed to get off and go on to planets. Looking at worlds through a window stops being so enticing after a while.

    All in all, no. Not very effective or profitable.

    Construct 3 more AI's which will eventually be tasked with running our automated mining facilities and remote control of robotic operations in other systems.
    Create 1 additional AI to assist in R&D.
    Prepare for the colony ships which will be returning next year. Make sure that they are upgraded to make the trip to Tau Ceti, and begin preparations of all of the Martian citizens who wanted to buy safe passage from us to Tau Ceti.

    No, find out who is funding the rioters.

    Make them accountable for the deaths that they have caused, think of the families that they have ruined, think of the destruction that they have wrought, think of the profits we've lost due to people being all rebellious and not buying our shit.

    Set the lone gunmen on them, get to the button of this.

    Quietly move our assets (AI in particular) away from Mars. I think that it's time we cut short our involvement in this enterprise.

    I also say we should move one of our idle spy satellites around Pandora over to Mars, see if we can keep detailed info on new developments. Covert funding is always a good idea.
    I say we commit some of our research budget into improving our company image, see if we can improve our standing in the public eye. Maybe establish a variety of local-level charities on Earth and Mars like scholarships, feeding the hungry, providing homeless shelters, etc etc. Shouldn't be very expensive and might give us an edge over the other companies.

    Do we have any more details on the crashed ship? I'm hoping for photos.

    Or were those advanced structures you mentioned already stationed on that planet? Like they had been build there... Well, I did say this looked like an interstellar war of some sorts.

    Investigate 40 Eridani more thoroughly, including anything we can find on the dead civilization.

    And the planet should be collapsing back into a sphere shape, given that there's still lots of mass in extremely close proximity and without enough velocity for it to be flying apart.
    >> Plasma !UHUuLXLjhk 07/21/10(Wed)23:30 No.11274897
    If it helps, the number of Martian deaths since the uprising is estimately to be around 65,000, excluding the 91,000,000 who died in the New Shanghai bombing.

    Not only that, but I hate rioters for their stupidity. THEY'RE RIOTING IN A HOT ZONE! THEY'RE GETTING THEMSELVES IRRADIATED!
    Oh well, at least we can point and laugh as they succumb to radiation sickness.

    Also, use one of our Kuiper Belt CY's to begin construction of an automated mining ship with lots of robotic probes and maybe an onboard lab to be sent to Eridiani 40, along with a Heavy Freighter that will bring back any useful metals and minerals.

    That may be, but I want to know who they are and why they're doing it. If this is part of some Skeletor-like ploy to destroy the UN, and then take over the universe (I don't know, it could happen) then I'd like to know about it.

    Moving our spy sats would take years to go from AC to Mars, not to mention that they're satellites and not interstellar spaceships.
    It would be cheaper and faster to just build them on Earth.
    >> Anonymous 07/21/10(Wed)23:33 No.11274937
    And they will lose. They won't beat the UN and if the UN gets the slightest hint of our involvement we are fucked. If we declare of Earth it is game over for us, I don't know what other people are smoking. We are small time in comparison to the other corporations and there are no other markets besides Earth to buy our shit.

    Also, let's start making ourselves a population of Outsters. Anybody who's read the Hyperion series knows what I'm talking about.

    The only requirement we have is that they send data back to us. Scientific, cultural, whatever; the real goal is to just allow a massive variety of social experiments and then see what develops from them.

    We should probably put our involvement with Mars to a vote, since it looks like we're divided on the issue.

    Personally I vote for supporting the rioters covertly.
    >> LordHighlander 07/21/10(Wed)23:36 No.11274994
    The political situation on Earth is that they dont LIKE megacorps.

    So lets use that to our advantage.

    Declare that the rioters will be removed from Earth, and anyone that so chooses, so that they may be free of the influence of earth.

    Put them on mars until we can move them further.

    Then we destroy the mega ship thing.

    I basically have to echo this, while pissing of the UN isn't a good thing but sometimes can't be ignored, all of our most important assets are located on Earth. And cutting ourselves of form them won't help us. Yet at least.
