Review of chapter "Phase 2" from DieselDriver
Review:
I love those gatling guns. My fav is the one in an A-10. Oh yeah!!! To bad they didn't have a couple of those handy. I had the pleasure of watching an Airshow, called the Space Fair, at Point Mugu Naval Air Station many years ago (back when they had them every year) and they did a demo of the 20mm in an F-14. The 14 zooms across the field from Right to left and all of a sudden there's a stream of smoke and then the sound comes, sounding like God's own fart. I don't know if it sounds like canvas ripping, never heard that but my description is what it sounded like to me.

Review of chapter "Question Time" from DieselDriver
Review:
Don't much care for the swapping of POV every couple of sentences. maybe ok per chapter instead. Don't much care for repeats of scenes though so chronological only please.

Regarding your reply to my comment:
Hmmm, you did say it was an experiment in your end of chapter A/N and said A/N seemed to ask for an opinion. Perhaps I misunderstood. Also, if you only write for yourself, why post it? As for not reading it, it's a chapter in the story, would leave quite a hole if I skipped it. Without your A/N I would not have commented on it at all.
Comments from author:
Don't like it? Don't read it. I did this as an experiment in writing styles. I don't write for anybody but me, I don't ask for recommendations or reviews because of that.

Review of chapter "Cavalry" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I think Boyer was the one who made a classic science fiction reference before, so maybe he'll suggest either an E.T. prime directive or Shadow proclimation as to why Earth doesn't get attacked. Good hinting that the poacher theory is close on target. These are probably criminals in the hunter civilziation or "outback" and far from central rule.

Review:
Another fun, unexpected crossover. Kind of cool that they exist in the same world as the A-team.

Review of chapter "Rules of Engagement" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Good example of having a creative problem solver come up with a good "dumb idea" like when Star Gate SG1 humans helped with Thor's people.

That was a fun an unexpected crossover. As I recall they really were being paid through the department of fish and wildlife.

Review of chapter "Phase 2" from DieselDriver
Review:
hehehehehe! That poor little 20mm is totally outclassed by what an A-10 carries. 30mm 6 barrel cannon with a rate of fire selectable from 3,000 rounds a minute to 6,000. I've been in pilot debriefings where they reported the estimated number of rounds fired at a target. Usually in the neighborhood of 125 and usually less than 2 off. 30 rounds will take out any tank on Earth even if most of them miss. They make an ungodly noise when fired. Much much louder than the engines of the plane.

The gun body is so heavy that has to be mounted in the CG of the aircraft and the front landing gear is to one side so the barrels can line up with the centerline of the aircraft. The plane slows by about 20 knots or so each time you fire the gun.

Review of chapter "Cavalry" from DieselDriver
Review:
Ok, forget my previous review. I knew that wasn't going to happen anyway. But a couple of A-10s could put some serious hurt on the aliens and probably their ship as well.

Review of chapter "Rules of Engagement" from DieselDriver
Review:
At this point you get the heck out of dodge and call in an air strike from high altitude. Like guided bombs from 50K feet. 20,000 pounders. Either that or a small tactical nuke.

I'm really glad that at least someone had the same reservations about bionic limbs attached to human bones and musculature that I did. Thanks for having an explanation.

I have a Mossberg 500 that's so old it doesn't have a serial number. Excellent shotgun.
