Where Bacteria Roam

The Canonn Method

turned_in_not, ,

The scientific method is a process for designing experimentation that helps us to unravel the secrets of the galaxy.  The overall process involves…

Thargoid Data: USS Logging


The Thargoid Data Gathering project has been a great success. We now have a wealth of data plotting the extent of Thargoid incursions.

However the nature of the Thargoid Threat has changed substantially since they have entered the bubble. Previously we would be able to tell from the threat levels what type of Thargoid vessels we would encounter but now it is not possible to distinguish a Medusa from a dozen scouts using automated equipment alone.

Given the changing nature of the threat, and the success of the previous program, Canonn R&D have upgraded the USS-Survey device to provide some additional features.

Visual Quick Reference for Navigating Planets and Moons

Very useful chart, for those who go hunting on planets, this is a good little reference for traversing Lat/Long on planets. Cmdr Duke Maximilien Robespierre points out in the Reddit source post linked below: If your heading is 0 degrees, you will increase the latitude reading but longitude will stay the same. If the heading…
