  5. Research Notes
Research Notes is where we publish items of interest and developing ideas from Canonn commanders that are not yet suitable for incorporation into the Codex either due to the amount of conjecture and uncertainty or their speculative nature. Have a read through the articles here and discuss and expand on them with fellow Canonneers in our Discord server.

Testing Professor Shaw’s Hypothesis

Testing Professor Shaw’s Hypothesis on the Thargoid homeworld CMDR’s Proasek, WyldxPhoenix, DudleyBose IV Abstract: On the seventh of April 3304, Professor Cora Shaw of the Palin Institute published a speculative paper recounting the current theories on Thargoid origins. Of these hypotheses one has been selected as the most practically tested, that the Thargoid homeworld is…
KPI 413 Rhubarb and Custard

Rhubarb and Custard

In July 3306 Canonn researchers mining the Spansh galactic database identified that two class III gas giants in the KOI 413 system were in essentially the same orbit. The only difference between them being the orbital inclination and the orbital period. This configuration meant that the bodies were almost certain to collide at some point.…

Thargoid Site Survey

turned_in_not,

This study produces a photographic record of all Thargoid surface structures and an analysis of the structures above the surface. The analysis is used to form the basis of a new way of classifying the sites to facilitate further study of the surface sites.

Study of Hyperdiction Statistics

turned_in_not,
1. Introduction Ever since the Thargoids made their return known in human space in late 3303, commanders have been interdicted directly out of hyperspace by Thargoid Interceptors, a phenomenon that has been called a Hyperdiction by the galactic community [1].  These so-called Hyperdictions have primarily happened in the Pleiades, but over the course of time…

Spectral Class Distribution of Galactic Phenomena

turned_in_not, , , , ,

We are proud to host CMDR Urania Minora’s study of the Spectral Class Distribution of Galactic Phenomena, which aims to bring an understanding of the relationship between the Harvard Stellar Classification of a primary star, and what phenomena may be discovered in a system, as a help to guide exploration efforts. The research paper examines the specifics for phenomena of specific interest to Canonn scientists establishing potential patterns and biases from a detailed analysis of available data from 3.28×10^7 known explored systems

Thargoid Interceptor Hull Analysis

1. Introduction Some time ago it was discovered that is is possible to repair Thargoid ships with human repair limpets [1].  The discovery opened up the possibility of measuring the properties of Thargoid Interceptor hulls, namely total integrity and Armor Rating.  Recent understanding of Anti-Xeno (AX) weapon damage partitions [2] also complements this study well…

Advanced Multi-Cannon Analysis

turned_in_not,
1. Introduction The galactic community recently decided to support Zende Partners in the development of an Advanced Multi-Cannon (AMC) weapon [1].  Given the usual lack of transparency in weapon documentation, the goal of this study was to characterize the Anti-Xeno (AX) properties of this newly developed module.  Additionally, after the basic AX damage properties of…

SLF Damage Partition Analysis

1. Executive Summary The focus of this study is the detailed analysis of Ship Launched Fighter (SLF) damage partitions, namely the analysis of damage characteristics of Anti-Xeno (AX) fighters.  This study draws on the analysis of AX weapon damage partitions that was recently conducted [1].  The table below summarizes the damage partitions of the four…

AX Weapon Damage Partitions

1. Introduction There has been recent success in using rigorous mathematical techniques to accurately estimate the damage partitioning of human weapons, such as Plasma Accelerators and Railguns [1].  Information from the weapon damage partitioning study and similar mathematical techniques were leveraged to get accurate estimates of the Thargoid Interceptor shield characteristics, such as initial strength…

Thargoid Interceptor Shield Analysis

1. Introduction The subject of this article is the accurate estimation of Thargoid Interceptor shield strength.  An initial analysis was carried out to estimate these values and is referenced here in its entirety [1].  Given the success of the mathematical techniques used to accurately estimate the damage partitioning in human weapons such as Plasma Accelerators…
