Analysis and plan...

Enemy Projection:
With Planet Golf reclaimed, enemy will redirect all focus on averting the loss of Planet Foxtrot.  With 1 AC and 3 other warships over Golf, at least one AC loaded with enemy troops will certainly assault Foxtrot.  Two or three escorts from Golf will likely follow.  A new ship from their homeworld may also join the action at Foxtrot.

Quote from: Plan Fleet Protection

Summary: We just dodged a massive fleet battle at Golf and taken ground on Foxtrot.  However, the enemy is well positioned to counter-assault Foxtrot.  The Peitho and two damaged Logos will hold the blockade as all other vessels are relocated for recycling.  An Endeixi built for the relief of Foxtrot next cycle.

    Details:

    1.  The two ITC's at Foxtrot withdraw to A.
    2.  The two crippled Logos at Charlie withdraw to the Hub and are recycled (+6 SPP).
    3.  Peitho "Big Stick" and Logos 06 and 08 hold the blockade at Foxtrot.
    4.  Endeixi 01 is constructed and pushes forward to A (-5 SPP, 1 remainder).

    Friendly Projection:
    Blockade is effective enough to neutralize AC landing.  Friendly forces on Foxtrot take enough ground to deny the enemy resources.  Endeixi 01 positioned in range to relieve and repair space forces over Foxtrot next cycle.  Transport craft arrive at the Hub next cycle for recycling and loading.

Wasn't 'Trade Surplus' the ITC that got blown up?  ITC-02 LIFT to be precise.

Turn 9 Strategy Phase: The Network

Military Report

The enemies' lack of attempts to contest Foxtrot's orbit was certainly interesting but perhaps understandable, given the violence of recent clashes. The advance on Foxtrot can best be described as a bloodbath, but it is admittedly a bloodbath we're winning. Progress will undoubtedly slow as we reach the last, concentrated strongholds of the enemy and the Slaughterfields are less spread out across the planet. Some counter to them or some other advantages would be welcome on the planet's surface. The orbital theater goes well, though, and the generals eagerly await the first real fight the Peitho can get into.

----
It is now the turn *10* design phase, since apparently just remembering to increment by 1 every time is too difficult.

Quote from: 'SparkY' 2: Fusion Bogaloo
Try the "SparkY" Tokamak Fusion Plasma Drive again. I'm sorry, you wanted a more interesting design? Ask again after you've successfully avoided melting down a laboratory for the umpteenth time.

Quote from: S-40 Plasma Caster 'Joiner'
Now, you fine gentlebots get the fun one, mainly because you've not been at fault during the other plasma fiascos. Whilst expensive in both time, funding and reputation, these failures have shown how destructive a force fusion can be.

Superficially similar to the R- series of ship weapons, the S-40 is a mass driver with an attached power plant. However, instead of launching ferrous slugs, we will be launching superheated plasma in a semi-controlled fashion.

Once the attached fusion reactor has brought the plasma up to to temperature,  a small amount will be siphoned off and launched out of the coilgun, being magnetically neutralised at the end of the barrel to ensure the blob of plasma doesn't immediately repel itself and turn into an ever-expanding mist.

Each 'round' should be lighter, allowing for higher velocities,  and thus a reduced time-to-target. Additionally, we do not need separate slug magazines, instead being able to carry additional tanks of fusion fuel, that will be compatible with the primary reactor and thrusters of a vessel, giving us a reduced volume, higher amount of ammo and tactical flexibility in the case of container failure.

Try shooting down a blob of plasma with those flashlights.

Damnit people, this is why I said to keep the truce. Because now everyone's ganging up on the cats.
Also, don't forget to contact your local Eldritch Being(s), so that they can help with our mission to destroy the universe.
