Hi all. I see I have been welcomed. thank you.
So I write a lot. but only in my head.
I should start writing stuff down and this is a great chance.
So how about that ship I was commissioned to design? Ladies and gents, I give you the Abraham.
At a top speed of 92% the speed of light on impulse, and a theoretically infinite FTL speed limited only by the ammount of energy you can pump into it
The ships ftl is a very very powerful compressor. If you has a mass of hydrogen equal to the mass of your car, it would compress it down to maybe the
size of a small dna strand or something, generating enormous gravity.
The ship has plasma superheated shields. This makes it resistant to EMPs, solar flares, and other energy based items. It can also melt bullets and
missiles. But if, say, a nuke hit the shields, it would probably cause considerable damage in heat to the hull. A highly powerful laser, say something
that would be as hot as a star or something, would be able to penetrate the shields weakly and would have to be hit continuously until you maybe heat
up the shield generator enough. The shields are produced via strong em fields covering the ship from a generator within that particles are then
blasted into and attracted to, and the primary laser heats up to a plasma. Her hull is a triple layered hull. The top layer is super-engineered tiles
that resist intense pressures and blasts up to a certain point (a lot of Gs, like ... a lot) then shatter. Under neath is a series of carbon
nanotubes. Each tube has had liquid diamonds poured into it. This created remarkable strength of virtually unbreakable strength to conventional means.
It requires over 5000 K in laser heat to even melt it. Bellow are standard tungsten and titanium alloys. The ship uses two main thrusters for regular
speeds These both are antimatter powered The larger is for fast speed, the smaller is for slower speed. Together they are very fast. It's warp drive
is a mass-based compressor which takes anti-protons and uses negative charge to compress them down and then freezes it to increase their density and
gravity. This generates a super compressed superfluid. A Bose-Einstein condensate of enormous density. that generates gravity. The mass is then
rotated to generate an ergosphere. The ship is encased in an ergosphere within an event horizon within an ergosphere, allowing it to be propelled many
times the speed of light. The ship gets its fuel either directly from refilling to get pure antiprotons, but it can also can utilize several other
methods of fuel. It can use the vents on its hull to fly through a gas giant to get hydrogen, then use resonance frequencies to convert their wave
patterns from matter to antimatter. It is also equipped with Abdulla generators, which use carbon nanotubes with electrical forces to absorb and trap
electrons and subjugate them in its warp drives to compress these electrons into an electron-based superfluid. Essentially electron jelly. the
electrons become entangled in their own identities and come together either by gravity, strong nuclear force from neutrons, the chamber's EM forces
themselves, or it can convert some into positrons-electron combined elemental form that can be used. The electron jelly can also be merged with a
Quark–gluon plasma and stay in an electron jelly form and be directly pumped into the ship's systems. The ship also has a quantum entanglement
communication device for communication while in warp, or standard communication from radio waves.
The ship has inside one APC, one shuttle, 10 probes, 5 planet, 5 space, and can land. Its weapons include one "smiley face" laser ring on the
frontal row, one mass accelerator plasma gun which essentially takes something like lead ions and speeds them up by shooting them through a forward
gravity sphere which causes gravitational acceleration, and then shoots them out the main gun on the front It also has I think 6 torpedo tubes on the
front, and 8 on the back. Not exactly sure don't remember. The windows have to be closed in combat so that it has more strength. Windows are
structural weaknesses. It also has flares, side torpedo shoots, and other various things. its main gun is also a device to fire particles and such
instead of a deflector disk. It has no deflector disk as its warp drives generate an event horizon around it, reducing its observable mass to a
needle, like structure. The particles it collects on this "gravity window shield" are stopped once it exists, so they just disperse with the ship
after existing warp speeds.
So. Who's on board? And someone will have to explain what character I will be if I have time to write.
thanks for this guys!
I'll try to do some technical drawings later.
