Well, I sincerely hope you aren''t trying for an even remotely "realistic" storyline here. This is further from reality than some of the fantasy stories here, and that''s serious flaw in a genre like Sci-Fi where the possibilty is what makes it so intriguing.

First off, can you seriously see all the nations of Earth being united into a single political entity by 2012? I''m from Canada, so we know a little about trying to get states to join/stay in a federal union - like that would have to be; it''s very difficuly. Hell, to keep ONE, ethnically similar majority pacified took us almost 30 years - and they wanted to stay! Now extrapolate for thousands, and you''ve got an impossiblity.

Secondly, you can''t have "not-so" distant universes. There is only one (quantum theory be damnned) and it''s very large. Your statement makes no sense.

Third, why is the ship named GRUNTAKTICA? Because it sounds cool, is my feeling. Generally ships are not named for nonsensical, if cool-sounding, words.

Forth, it''s frankly impossible to get an agency founded in 2021 to build a ship the size of NY before 2056. No production technology is even remotely feasible that would allow such a timeframe. Hell, the DESIGN phase would probably take that long.

Fifth, how is a "12-year journey" going to explore the "outer-most regions of space". As far as I know, faster than light travel doesn''t have any basis in reality or your version thereof.

Sixth, how did the transfer of ALL earth''s prisoners to mars take place in a single year? Sounds impossible to me.

Seventh, how are the COM able to raise an army and gain access to unimaginably powerful explosives on a barren, airless world that was designed to be a prison colony? "Well, we just figured we could leave the bombs there with all the prisoners..."

Eighth, why would a cold-fusion plant be on the moon if it''s powering earth? Earth has lots of land, and cold-fusion plants aren''t all that large (in principle)

Ninth, why blow up the moon? Why not just the plant? Sounds like drama for it''s own sake.

Tenth, seriously rethink this plot. It''s got holes the size of, well, that moon-explosion you detailed.

Good luck,
-Operator

Nothing to it. Here''s what you do:

Expand the timeline so that it takes a few hundred years

Have the moon be TURNED INTO a cold fusion plant (with the capacity to transfer energy through space, like a radio signal)

Terraform Mars (if you were going to asphyxiate all the prisoners, you could have just dropped them into the ocean), and give the prisoners the technology needed to produce food, and have that technology powered by fusion cells that are converted into gigantic H-Bombs by the resident evil genius.

Change "not-too-distant Universe" to "not-too-distant GALAXY"

Have the main engineer for the interstellar craft project be named Joshua Gruntaktica.

Badda-bing, badda-boom. It''s airtight.

Is ''Gruntaktica'' supposed to sound cool? Worst name ever IMHO.

And according to some documentary on discovery losing the moon would be quite a disaster. The earth''s axis would not keep it''s 23 degree tilt, it would start to wobble, and this would give pretty interesting weather and no doubt massive environmental disasters. Polar ice caps melting causing sea levels to rise and funny stuff like that.

(continuing Lantz''s reply)
... not to mention huge chunks of titanium rock falling back into Earth and destroying all life (the axis thing could take 50-200 years to really matter i guestimate)...

That''s why the moon has to be blown AWAY from Earth. After all, if the blast comes from between the earth and the moon, centrifugal force will whip the bits into space. The blast itself would have little impact on earth, because it would be directive by a magnetic field in the shape of a parabolic cone.

You cant generate a big enough blast to blow AWAY the moon, the amount of energy necessary to reduce to moon to dust is ridiculously high, and something that powerful would probably have an immediate effect on Earth, like shatering our magnetic poles, or ionizing the atmosphere or something...

Planets or planetoids cant just be blown away... the only method to do this is a next generation explosive i''ve thought of, the Golden Needle, but it would be so powerful it would probably generate a black hole...

uggg....

I''m from Canada, so we know a little about trying to get states to join/stay in a federal union - like that would have to be; it''s very difficuly.

Dates can be changed...



Secondly, you can''t have "not-so" distant universes. There is only one (quantum theory be damnned) and it''s very large. Your statement makes no sense.


Hows not so distant galaxies?




Third, why is the ship named GRUNTAKTICA? Because it sounds cool, is my feeling. Generally ships are not named for nonsensical, if cool-sounding, words.


Got a better name? Please suggest?




Forth, it''s frankly impossible to get an agency founded in 2021 to build a ship the size of NY before 2056. No production technology is even remotely feasible that would allow such a timeframe. Hell, the DESIGN phase would probably take that long.




Hmm... Dates can be changed



Fifth, how is a "12-year journey" going to explore the "outer-most regions of space". As far as I know, faster than light travel doesn''t have any basis in reality or your version thereof.



I told my friend that, I was thinking 120 years... (opinions?)
Sixth, how did the transfer of ALL earth''s prisoners to mars take place in a single year? Sounds impossible to me.





Seventh, how are the COM able to raise an army and gain access to unimaginably powerful explosives on a barren, airless world that was designed to be a prison colony? "Well, we just figured we could leave the bombs there with all the prisoners..."



Critical story part was left out there (he forgot I guess):

They find a crashed ship on a dark "corner" of mars. Fix it up with some of the laser guns the Earth people left ''em (hoping they would kill each other or something) and went to a newly dicovered planet (by them obviously) and found what they needed built up a small economy and there you have it.


Eighth, why would a cold-fusion plant be on the moon if it''s powering earth? Earth has lots of land, and cold-fusion plants aren''t all that large (in principle)


Hmm, how bout a large solar plant or something.... better: they turned the moon into a large cold-fusion (wait... what is cold fusion LOL seriously) plant because they needed extra power for GRUNTAKTICA




Ninth, why blow up the moon? Why not just the plant? Sounds like drama for it''s own sake.


Read above... the moon is now the cold fusion plant


Tenth, seriously rethink this plot. It''s got holes the size of, well, that moon-explosion you detailed.


Well, thanks for the help.
