Review of chapter "Chapter 15" from RankoNakajima
Review:
Well...that was...sudden. Really? Your ending it there?
Comments from author:
Yep, I'm ending it there.
Sorry if you thought it was a little abrupt but not much more I could add other than the long negotiation with the Asgard. They mostly just enjoy themselves afterward. If there is ever a sequel it will be because there is a threat to the world that the SGC need help with but Earth is actually pretty well protected now so it would need to be something big but something the gang could actually help with.
So it ends there with a sequel possible but not definite.

Review of chapter "Chapter 14" from kazimo
Review:
There is a way xander can jusify staying in the solar system. Using the gold they have, and hte money they could hack from crooks, they buy or invest in busineeses andresearch that they know work, are needed and usefull to advancing. He can say he is developing trade contacts and infrastructure with earth and the sgc. He want eventual acces to the alien tech and contact tehy have made.
Using materials salvaged from near earth orbit, he could create the ultimate satelite network for long term high intensity use, aimed to watch the skies, watch and scan the ground and communicate between satelites and track the huge orbital junk yard. SInce he can build them on site with advanced tech no one can get to his network would be the best around. Imagine 24 h/day live coverage of every spot on earth available to hte public, with extraordinary zooming capability, as well as archival abilty. The network would allow deep scan ability of deep space, far better than anything like hubble.
Communicate would allow alot of use of the existing satelite network, and hte tracking system would help preserve the space infrastructure.
WIth his ship cloak, he can salvage all the junk he wants unseen.

if xander can copy, produce or augement zats using his facility, then other alien tech would be shared with them, if htey can produce some of them for sgc use. Creat improved malps for gate use, as well as otehr material for use in the sgc.

I wonder if the trust or the NID will try to make contact.
Comments from author:
Those are good suggestions. The NID has already been mentioned. You'll have to continue reading to see whether or not the Trust gets heard from as well.

you know telling Willow that the sensors are there well just make her look for them and scan them.
good chapter, thanks
Comments from author:
Thanks for the comment and the rating!
Yes, I'm sure she'll look for the Asgard sensor but will she find it? Stay tuned! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from RedCalypso
Review:
I'm curioius. How the heck can Carter know that it's a freighter, let alone know that it has cargo?
Comments from author:
The tops of the vaults in the cargo area are transparent so the sensor she's using can see inside them to notice they hold cargo.

Review of chapter "Chapter 14" from JamesBrown
Review:
in reference to dieseldriver's question about the ZPM :

A 'zero point module' isn't a battery that can be recharged.
it's more like an engine with a enormous sealed gas tank.
once it's empty you can't just refill it - you have to rebuild the thing.
essentially the idea is 'empty space' isn't empty - there is (theoretically)
enough energy inherent in a few cubic inchs of vacuum to boil an ocean.
what we think of as reality is just bubbles floating on top of the quantum foam.

The technobabble of the ZPM is that the ancients figured out how to
'Pinch off' a little piece of space-time making a micro universe.
the ZPM punches a tiny hole in this microverse and then drains
the resulting energy like using the air pressure in a balloon to power a toy.
Once the 'balloon' is drained and collapses the device
is useless until another pocket universe is created and attached.

As for the lying bastard - their reaction drive is hydrogen fusion -
basically a atomic rocket engine, while the reactionless drive
'pulls' on the aforementioned space time to move the ship and its contents
at what are frankly ridiculous speeds.
it doesn't actually violate Newton's laws so much as use the structure of
the universe to take up the 'equal and opposite reaction' part of the equation.
All technobabble gibberish of course but hey, so long as it sounds good
I'm perfectly willing to go with it.

In any case I'm glad to see that you're finally updating again, and hope to see many more.
And thank you for entertaining us with all your hard work.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the comment!
I'm assuming that the reactionless drive still requires some sort of fuel and it makes sense to have it run on hydrogen since the ship needs that anyway for the fusion drive.
I'm glad you are still being entertained even after the long hiatus.

Review of chapter "Chapter 14" from DieselDriver
Review:
It's been quite awhile since the last update and my poor poor memory forced me to go back and read the prior 13 chapters so I knew what was going on. What an ordeal...NOT!!!

More sooner please.

edit: Based on some of the other reviews I have a question... What does the Midas use for fuel (hydrogen?) and how do they get more of it? Do they have one of those filtering teleport discs that they can use to refuel by putting it in the ocean or one of the heavy planet's atmosphere? The fusion engines probably use hydrogen. Maybe the rest is powered by total conversion of mass to energy? Better than a ZPM? I'm not sure, is a ZPM a storage device or do they generate energy themselves.
Comments from author:
The Midas does use Hydrogen for fuel. When they get low on fuel they can indeed use the probes you remember to teleport fuel directly to the tanks. The puppeteers aren't up to total conversion engines so the reactionless drive uses hydrogen for fuel as well just much more efficiently. Whether the ship can put out more energy than a ZPM I am not sure but I doubt it will come up.
