Re: What happens if 2 black globes touch?

Classically speaking, it eats energy, but can't digest it.

That, of course, brings up the question as to how the rest of the ship systems continue to function, especially life support.

Also, as to what energizes the Black Globe.

Re: Invention of Synchronised Jumps

Charted space is likely to have designated approach lanes, and exit ramps.

Maybe even lighthouses.

Re: What rank would Shadowmon hold?

This is obviously a key officer.

He needs a special designation to indicate this.

As such, the word "key" should be suffixed to his name.

Re: What happens if 2 black globes touch?

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that they're used dirtside as a defensive measure, so one would assume that any ambient energy they pick up from intervening planetary surface is minimal.

Re: Invention of Synchronised Jumps

My feeling is that it's a case of diminishing returns when it comes to below planetary sized celestial objects in terms of their gravitational influence, so less than a hundred diameters, otherwise all you need to stop someone triggering the escape route into the rabbit hole is a continuous stream o...

Re: What happens if 2 black globes touch?

1. It sucks up all energy within it's vicinity, except apparently batteries. 2. Of course, sucking energy from capacitors and batteries would create a feedback loop. 3. Can't recall what powers a Black Globe - dark matter? 4. Speaking of feedback loops, a Black Globe should be the perfect solar cell.
