Gates and warp

Post by Naja » Mon Dec 10, 2012 4:10 am

I was looking at the wiki's description of the Tarkasian warp pulse, which says:

SOTS2 Wiki wrote:The warp pulse allows a Tarka warp drive ship to execute a 5000 meter, straight line FTL “lunge” in tactical combat. It is very fast but any collision is catastrophic to the warped vessel. Anything hit in normal space remains relatively unharmed though."


Now here's a random thought: What if a Tarkasian ship warped through a Hiver gate? Seeing as both drives travel through the meniscus in opposite ways, I imagine the results would be paradoxical and cataclysmic. Perhaps something similar played a role in the disappearance of the Silver Imperium?

I proposed just such a thing a while back.

I quite enjoy the lore speculation threads. Would like it if there were more discussions in that vein...
