Elysium and the Havoc SystemElysium and the rest of the "Havoc" system are best known as a stronghold of ==NOVA== in the days of the Clone Wars and Galactic Civil War. But it was not always such. It was once a barren, lifeless system of little interest, in the backwaters of the Unknown Regions. It was discovered by a scout flotilla and subsequently colonized as a last bastion outpost. Heavily terraformed and built up, Elysium became the heavily modern holding place of the Havoc blades. The endeavor was sponsored by the D'plat family, and Derek D'plat based most of the fleets out of the system after it was militarized and hyperspace routes established. After a series of conflicts upon the planet, leading up to the Cylian Conflicts, D'plat moved most of the fleets, which left the system a small picket force and the defenses of the orbital stations and planetary facilities. When the Admiral was killed upon Coruscant, control of the fleets splintered and few made it back to the Havoc system in time to defend it from
Primary Human Technology in the Light WarsMag Cannon: The primary armament of older military ships of human make. It functions of the principals of magnetically propelling a projectile, hence its full name, the Linear Magnetic Spectra Weapons System. It uses a series of electromagnetic chargers set along the inside of the barrel to guide and accelerate a several ton, modular projectile. While most people think this is all it does, the cannon actually fires the rounds with a chemical blasting charge, then increases the velocity through the use of magnetics. Where the real power of the weapon comes into play is in the low-power Spectra Drive affixed to the end of the barrel. The drive can be activated in situations where adverse firepower is needed, or the range is so great the round needs an absurd amount of speed. Instead of passing out of the muzzle and into the vacuum of space, the round is subjected to a Spectra Interface Field and is pulled into the relative space/time state that all objects in Spectra demonstrate. From he
Syllvin SystemIn the year 2736, the Terran Alliance of Planets was the major human government. The Alliance consisted of roughly 128 systems that were colonized by humans, from small agrarian colonies to major shipping ports. Earth had become too crowded and lacked the resources to sustain the population any longer, so the human capital was relocated to a planet in the Tau Ceti system, which was named Terra. The TAP had advanced technology, such as jump engines and laser weaponry.
One of the most valuable, but most distant systems was 357-Sylvan, later renamed Syllvin. It contains an abnormal galactic feature in that it has over a dozen planets orbiting the binary stars Syllvin and Arole, and each of these planets has at least 3 moons. This feature, coupled with the two asteroid belts, made Syllvin one of the most populous systems in the TAP. Terra-forming occurred to a very high degree there.
In 2821, the local government of Syllvin launched a coup of the TAP's military forces and Governor. Using m
The Parlour IncidentOne day in July, I believe it was, I found myself sitting with several acquaintances in Christopher's parlour. It was one of those deliciously lazy afternoons which only the summer in her full glory can bring. The room had a wan, listless light to it, relaxing the other guests and myself as we languidly chatted over tea and crumpets. The air was also sluggishly heavy, dulling the senses to a slowly-blended calm engendered by the heat of St. Othniel's southerly climate.
At length, after much stimulating conversation, Christopher stood, producing a book of sheet music.
"What do you all say to a bit of music?" he asked.
"Certainly," I answered.
"Oh yes, please do darling!" Tabitha exclaimed, "he's quite the maestro."
Christopher laughed, shaking his head.
"Now, now love, I'd not go that far."
He strode over to the piano as the other guests urged him on. Ida entered the room bearing a merrily steaming teapot and more crumpets.
"More tea sirs?" she inquired, shooting sideways glances at her
