Calculating a Chimera Drive-Activated Jump

To calculate the possibility of performing a jump, whether subject is a small item the size of a suitcase or a full planetary system, the exchange factor must first be calculated:

  • ·         Calculate remaining time before wave hits, and pit it against fixing the Thucydides…take into account of saving the planet population and N-TRIDIAL supply: 

At time of securing the Echolyn base, the estimation was about 328 (hours).

  • ·         Learn about the Medaveryl Sphere’s capabilities, and how it can implement a sustained field by which the defining mass to be exchanged can be accessed by the Chimera drive.

With help from Modyah (Gendaow), Tyriceus was given a simple procedure for harnessing the Medaveryl Sphere to power up the Chimera drive.

  • ·         Calculate the use of N-TRIDIAL to stabilize such an endeavor, as well as dilution factor, if any.

  • ·         Implement the EHTOU (Event Horizon Telescopic Observation Unit) apparatus/Chimera Drive’ still intact on the Thucydides, or duplicated via a replicator. With an N-TRIDIAL enhancement (?) it can then plot a new course to the exchange target.

  • ·         Set up a main acceleration unit, and outlying transponders in order to create the spherical ‘definition’ field, which will include and determine all matter that is desired to be exchanged.

  • ·         Determine the exchange target’s mass volume-to-density number. The number should be within 5% greater for the target planet—NOTE that a jump cannot occur if the target number is less than the object to be jumped.  The defining mass-to-density is based on Earth, so Earth’s number is derived from a  Of the planets marked for terraforming, which are positioned in capable systems able to support life (sun belt), the following are the possibilities in regard to mass exchange equality: Volume = 1.00 / Density = 1.00
VOL/MASS (Based on Earth @ 1.00)
(Rynoan Exchange)
.93 / .86
Terraform in process
.90 / .90
0.0102 (+ 1%)
Currently: Life  up to invertebrate  / in process for colonization
.87 / .96
0.0354 (+3.5%)
Newly added via Tyriceus’ recent recollection* Life up to microbial present
.82 / .98
0.0038 (+.038%)
*Tyriceus proclaims that this bit of news is very new, in that the unconfirmed report came in less than two days before the mission was launched. Indigar is a planet in the Caiddian system which Terran intelligence proclaims to be a joint Utosian/Nye-Orin terraform that looks to be targeted as completed with four months of the date the dispatch was released.  NOTE: if a jump is administered and Indigar is 'destroyed', then the Utosians and Nye-Orins may stake a claim to Rynoa, since they (would) have invested heavily in the planet that was occupying the ‘official space’ (jump target). Could be one for the intergalactic lawyer foundations(!)

The closer to 0.0 in the jump factor, the smoother the transition.
Calculation Example:
Rynoa  - .93 x .86 = .0.7998 (of Earth);       Deshem - .90 x .90 = .8100
Difference factor:            Tolerance range for Rynoa is 0.7998 + (5%)  [.7998 + 0.03999] = between 0.7998 & .83979
 Factor for Deshem is .8100, so difference between factor Rynoa and Deshem, which has to be greater at the target end (Deshem), is 0.0102. This is slightly over 1%, which is within the 5% maximum tolerance factor.
This means that an energy release of 2.9% of the vol/mass differential is released simultaneously at the end of a successful jump. It is estimated that a jump occurrence with a difference over 5% would initiate a chain reaction back to the entire mass/volume of the jumped planet, thereby destroying it in the process.

Just something to think about, if you wish. I'll post or show the Quandrant map, which lays out as follows:
Q1 = Earth Quadrant (Jengartha) Q2 = Nye-Orin & Utoshian Quadrant (Caiddian) Q3 = Phaeran Quadrant (Palpio).  Q4, beyond Q3, is uncharted but named Begglu Quadrant. The Quadrand beyond that (Q5) would be the Baledran Quadrant, home of the Gendoaw (Baledra).

  1. Ok we are left with a bit of a quandary.

    The Phaeran Quadrant can only be considered as a punitive measure where we take out a high value planet and then quickly initiate a second transfer to Deshem. I would not even consider the plan if we were not at war.

    The Begglu Quadrant is not even an option. We have no data on the quadrant. That might be solved by enhancements to the ETOU unit on the Thucydides. However we have serious time constraints. Last check had us just over 300 hours till the safety red-line.

    The Baledran Quadrant has its own set of problems. We would be on the wrong side of Phaerian space and occupation forces would be an issue. The charts provided by Modyah may be of help, however the only compelling reason to jump there is to find the remaining Gendauw.

    Indagar is the least problematic as far as the transfer goes, however it can have significant political and strategic issues. Add to this the information is not verified.

    Even though is in Terran space, Chiapas the 3.6% mass difference is close to being extremely dangerous. The energy release might severely damage Rhynoa and orbiting assets. That does not even take into account the number of human colonists inhabiting the planet.

    That leaves us Deshem. We are looking at less than 1% difference in mass. One question is this: Does this calculation include the asteroid belt and Echolyn base? Another thought is can we add any more mass to bring down the differential? Perhaps using N-TRIDIAL and the aid of the Idree may mitigate the damage. Tee Strango brothers may also be of use in developing refinements to our technology.

    That's my take on the situation at the moment. Thoughts anyone?
