Talk:Solemn League Navy

A few things I'm wondering: what is the relation of the league's navy (and army) with the provinces' militias ? Are they fully separate entities or do they share personnel (provincial units being "impressed" in time of need) ? If the former, what jurisdicty would the league's armed forces have (provincial vs federal) ? --Marc Pasquin 11:13, 30 Sep 2005 (PDT)

I would rather assume that provincial naval units would be more akin to the Coast Guard *here* in terms of make-up and mission. They would coordinate with the SLN when and if necessary, but generally function as different entities. That would be my take on the matter, but I'm interested in hearing any other ideas. Unlike the army (in some ways) I think it probably very problematical of have a decentralized command in a navy. Zahir 13:24, 30 Sep 2005 (PDT)

Does the SLN also use the Tesla Reactors? BoArthur

Just did a quick search of this site and found very little. Could you please direct me to a source of information about Tesla Reactors so I can fathom a good guess as to the answer? Zahir 13:34, 30 Sep 2005 (PDT)
I would e-mail Ferko directly; he's the creator of the Tesla reactors. Basically, they take power from the magnetosphere, as far as I understand. It's based on experiments that Nikola Tesla tried conducting here, but failed to bring to fruition. BoArthur
Tesla type reactors are one of the few (I think 2 or 3) instances where we've fiated into existence elements of sci-fi. I would suspect that if they are real technology *there* then they are probably built and used in a number of countries as needs and economics mandate. [PB]
Been unable to find Ferko's email addy. However, I would say that Admiral Heinlein almost certainly would have tried to have submarines built with Tesla generators if they existed. Without further information I cannot really comment. Sorry. Zahir 15:22, 30 Sep 2005 (PDT)
