The second thing I developed over the past few month would be the Ormiold.
The Ormiold are a contemporary species of the Quetzal, and managed to get some survivors out from the ‘Last War’ against the Onouch’l Automatons and into the Solar System, hiding out in the Asteroid Belt in cryostasis.
And image for the Ormiold will come up eventually.
I’ve been working on a few things for ‘A Giants Shoulders’ over the last few month.
One of the independent nations in the Sol Main Asteroid Belt, the Federated Districts of Ceres.
The Federated Districts have started out as a company settlement to provide manpower for Asteroid Mining on Ceres, but eventually grew to become a democratic nation in its own right, under the tutelage of the European Union. The latter since the company in question, Euro Asteroid, was a company with its seat in Luxembourg.
Over the past few days I have put a lot of thought into spacecraft design for ‘A Giants Shoulders’. Of course the design is firmly grounded in the designs I’ve made for ‘Seeing Further’, but a bit more refined.
To this end, I have written up a document on the Type 45 interstellar patrol spacecraft, capable of operating up to 18 month on a patrol pattern to take care of potential enemies and commerce raiders of nations that are opposed to the Solar Nations.
I’ve always had fun using LaTeX to write my documents and I did use it two write a number of faux scientific documents, though most of those are not safe for work and certainly to available here.
Now I’ve thought to use the little wiki document data I still have on the Quetzal and write a ‘Primer on Quetzal’ to dive a little deeper into the creation of a fictional species. I certainly hope that I’ve managed to get it done well enough.
