This week has been all about space battles. I’ve watched hours of Battlestar Galactica, Mass Effect, Star Wars, and a few clips on Youtube that I don’t know what they were from. I’m not a real big TV science fiction junkie. I have my niches and that’s it. For BG fans you can flog me in the comments over what I’m about to say. I’m not a big fan of BG, it became too metaphysical. I know, I know. I delve into the metaphysical and Li’ve will too, but not to the extreme BG did.
As you can guess this week’s chapter, (and maybe one more?), have to do with space battles. I’m not talking a few ship on ship battles like I saw in BG and some other clips. I’m talking hundreds of ships of all sizes going after each other, like Mass Effect (see clip below).
I don’t think small in my imagination. I also watched several documentaries on naval battles in the Pacific during WWII to see what actual ship to ship combat looked like. For the trivia fans, UEE Enterprise is named after the aircraft carrier “The Big E” USS Enterprise CVN-6. Carriers played a big role in WWII naval combat and they will in my story as well.
I know a few people are asking, where did Kita get a fleet of warships? It’s not what you, but who is your girlfriend. Earth’s new Emperor, the Angel Defiance, mobilizes her fleet to protect the Sol system from an invader.
