Neat stuff, although that would be freakin' huge turret, still coolness.
By the way, in the couple of days before your responce I found out most of my second question, and depending on what your relating it to it can be describes kinda like the ship in question is the center of longtitude and later lines, and orientation is gained through the use of a really precise gyroscope. Thx again though.

First Question: How does one mount a MAC on a turret?
Answer: The turrets are on outriggers extended away from the hull. The weapon is still the same size, it's just on a rotating platform extended out about three hundred meters.
Second Question: What does #-#-point-#-# mean?
Answer. #-#-point-#-# is the bearing in which its course is changing. A bearing of one-eight-zero would be heading towards the center of the galaxy, a bearing of zero-zero-zero would be the exact opposite. The point part is just hundreds of degrees. As for declination, same thing, a declination of one-eight-zero would be going straight up relative to the Earth, a declination of negative one-eight-zero would be straight down relative to the earth's north and south poles, with North=up and south=down.

Very nice. I like you're style, and the ship combat was very well narrated, perhaps the best I've seen (besides Nylund). Make sure you don't get dragged into an "everyday" sorta feeling. The purpose of a story is to relate an extraordinary event, so send the ship on some special mission or throw in some plot twist to keep the story interesting. Not to say you haven't thought of it, but just a reminder.

Hey hey, goodness is what I call that.
But i really have to ask as few things..
(now the time you say: "Sure, go ahead."
...premero, how does one mounnt a MAC on a turret, concidering that they usually run half the length of a UNSC vessel. Succeeding in such a task would be very impressive, but dude, awasome weaponage I will admit. Secondly, I've been looking, and short of emailing my Army cousin or otehr Military enrolled family members I still can't find out what those #-#-point-#-# deals mean, hook me up if you know.

*hand clap* Very nice I will have to say, it even stuck on me. I commend you, it would seem we have someone to watch for the next couple of weeks, and hopefully longer. I like your style, but a bit more explination and "stuff" would be a good thing. Keep up the good work.

Scythe of Death hasn't been canned, i just put it on hold for a while. I've had this floating in my mind for a long time so i thought "Oh what the hell!" and just wrote it down in about three hours. Oh by the way, could you guys get other people to read my stories, they don't seem to be read alot. If you would, i'd appreciate it.

Very nice piece of art here. You made everything detailed to the very last bit. You created charaters and bought them to life. I look forward to seeing your second part. Email me at email@example.com if you can to tell me when your next part is on HBO.
