In earlier years we had characters like Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Space Kingley, and more recently herds of newbies like Han Solo. All good clean fun, safely in the realms of fiction.


and did fly about in space, talk face-to face over huge distances and zap each other with ray guns.

we have exited the world of fiction. Or have we entered it? For your fiendly fiction now manifest—




—coming soon to the seas near you. Now ponder all possible meanings of that most expressive of words:  Eeek!


It’s all progress. Of a sort …



… finding new and ever more better ways to kill each other. There’s no shortage of imagery on the web of the USN’s wee ray gun being demonstrated—it will only ever be used for defensive purposes of course, likewise all the others once the US has proven the concept …

  1. Aaaah … but does it work through fog? Can we see mirror-coated ‘targets’ reflecting hostility back to source? Forward projecting smokescreens? (Not to conceal, to blur out the beams)


    1. Still do, I understand—oodles of batteries, and of course generators to charge ’em. But they will get bigger/small/better and more affordable until everyone has one.

        But I like the logic—form all the polished shields into a parabolic curve (think each shield as a tile in a wall) and scupper the fleet. (Hell, I’ll bet you don’t even believe in ‘Greek fire’ neither~!) (?)
