So, in short, you don't like being trolled without knowing what the actual topic is?
Sorry, can't fix that problem.
Wouldn't need to redact as much if fr0st gave us the new forum back though.

In short you probably don't even know what trolling is seeing as most of the forum wouldn't find it funny even if you explained the context. At this point it's just plain annoying.

What LJS Keon and I did back in the day wasn't trolling persay, but was amusing for everyone involved. By comparison, you're just being a stubborn nuisance. Sorry to be mean about it (insomnia), but there it is.

I feel like while most of us are balanced, Tiel (superlasers?) and Fen (adaptive armor / self-destructive tech / layed uber-shields?) make up for it.
You forgot Jack's sheer numbers of ships, which must be made of paper and shoot apologies to make up for their excessive and idiotic numbers.

Sorry I'm going to have to interrupt this derailment.

My ships aren't necessarily the best, though they are rather unique due to the relative isolation of the Batiss Combine. The ships usually have a mix of magnetically-guided plasma weaponry, beam emitters (esp. PACs), spacial disruptors, and ballistic weapons. Ballistic weapons are the most commonly used, as they do not require a large amount of energy. Most large ships have at least one slip-merge drive, which can be used as a weapon if necessary. Internal structure of a Batiss craft is usually comprised of steel, titanium, or aluminum alloys. The armor is most often a titanium-graphene weave, often layered with solid titanium and thermal ceramic or tungsten alloy. Shields are usually either a fluid ion net or active negative-impulse generators. If there is adequate energy available, the ship's slip-merge drives (or specialized merge bubble castors) can be used to create a "Void Cloak" shield around the craft. Stealth systems are often used, usually of Darkstar or domestic make.

The FTL drive used in most ships is what is known as a Slip-Merge drive. It is similar to a slipsplace drive in that it uses a more compressed dimension of space to transverse long distances in a small amount of time. The main discrepancy is that a slip-merge drive replaces a section of realspace with the space of the compressed dimension, merging the two for a small amount of time. Since the pocket of merged space is not necessarily centered on the drive, ships have the ability to cast merge bubbles. This allows a slip-merge drive to place other objects into hyperspace/slipspace/subspace/whatever, such as smaller ships that lack a drive of their own; or weaponize the drive, opening a series of micro-bubbles inside an object to destabilize the material or excite it to the point of explosion. If an adequate amount of energy is released inside overlapping merge fields, the fields will become desynchronized and collapse, multiplying the energy and forcing it into a singularity. This singularity will then release its amplified energy (est. 10 gigatons TNT Eq.) into realspace. This is the basis behind the QUASAR auto-destruction system. The Combine has several sensor nets positioned in both realspace and whatever-space.

There are also several separate Noble Clans that manufacture their own for use in defense militias. The Central Navy comprises only about 50% of the total power of the Batiss Combine.

Pros:

- State of Art technology

- Fast and agile,crucial point in hit-run tactics and blitzkriegs.

- Stealth. [Best stealth tech in the galaxy]

- Use of combined arms [Explosive,energy and kinetic weapons]



Cons:

- Not Durable,relying on shields and AA protection.

- Most ships are not cheap because of the top technology,winning not in numbers but in  training,specialization and command  of the crew.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Weaponry:

Particle Technology: Disruptor weapons capable of cutting ships and shields to pieces.

Railgun technology : Ballistics not behind,advanced by the study of alloys for better conducting and the mass effect technolgy.

Explosive technology: Space disrupting torpedoes are the mainstream of the corporation. Creating in a small area a uncontrolled mass disruption,making it torn apart everything in the area and being useful as a deterrent to incoming fleets. Generally,the torpedoes are instructed to perfure the hull and liberate inside it the "fold-effect". A more deadly option is the plasma being injected directly inside the ship.

Dark-Matter mastery: Control of Dark-Matter,creating void-shields,stealth devices and so on.

Poly-Oxigen chemical weapon: Missiles containing special chemical can melt and oxidate ship hulls entirely by this compound,being good at surface battles and in space battles as well.

State-of-Art training of Special Operations: The Darkstar Special Operation units are one of the bests in the galaxy. Modified genetically to a certain extent,trained in many martial arts,in the use of many technologies,they are key in darkstar operations. Not winning by numbers,but attacking strategic points to cripple enemy incursions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------


Warpdrive: Mass Effect EEZO drive [Applying eletric current,the mass of the ship decrease,making it easier to go fast in normal space. This is a very cheap method of "jumping",making it good for fast strikes and no problems with jump disruptors.

Fold-drive: Fold the space between the ship and the space itself,making it easier to travel "underneath" the space. It is good because its very precise and cannot be disrupted. Its bad because its a prototype and its very expensive.

This will leave you in one place as both magnets push each other out and as the first magnet pulls the car back the second magnet pulls that thingy and with it the car forward, basically meaning the result force is 0.

PROS:
- Lots of guns and energy weapons.
- Most of my ships are cheap to make.
- Good shield and armor technology.
- Partnership with Darkstar for basic stealth, advanced weapons, etc.
- Can take a lot of punishment.

CONS:
- Not so great FTL technology.
- Some ships are outdated.
- Bigger ships are disproportionate in price.
