Although the Xenium Reactor is a very effective and capable device, it is apparent that it is not capable of interstellar travel. It, like all engines earth has developed, cannot travel faster than the speed of light. This severely inhibits interstellar travel, implying that the aliens either originated from within our solar system, or that they have other propulsion systems. However, despite this information, it is still more effective than even the best human engines.


Q: Are the aliens capable of “above light speed travel”.

In my opinion they shouldn’t be able to travel above light speed. But I was just wandering if this was decided already.
My doctor says that I have a malformed public duty gland and a natural deficiency in moral fiber, and that I am therfore exused from saving Universes.

We actually might be able to avoid this since everything occurs in the solar system where near light speeds are fine.

The aliens might have more powerfull elerium driven engines on Mars, but they don't send those down to Earth.

Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

Intersteller travel is quite possible, both above and bellow light speed. but they are two completly different scenarios.
and intersteller travel bellow light speed would requier huge amounts of power.

I say we go with the old hyperspace drives, the Aliens know how to make them, but when they got here they dismantled them since they had no use for them while conquering the pityful Humans :devillaugh:

i would prefere the bellow light speed travel option.
it would explain the gap in the Alien Origins Consept.

(an explanation for the time gap between dinosaurs and around 10000 BC is needed)

bellow light speed would explain the time gap.
also; if the the space craft would travel close to light speed. the passenger would experience 100'000 years, as little as a few weeks becouse of the effect of relativity.

acturly, aliens having +lightspeed drivers on mars (along with blueprints), it could be a great add-on to later versions. I mean, after you conquer mars, you find them, and now you go out to ---

Then lets NOT explain it. Players won't even know what they are.

I'd say only worry about it if/when either a second game or subsequent versions wanna have anything that involves locations or situations not in our backyard.

Of course, no need to involve interstellar travels in V1, in the Alien Origins we can say that we have no evidence as to how they got here.

I agree. This is an excellent point.

Here I go an angry brother gonna make his move
But can I buck him in the city so I never lose?
See I'm a get him in the crowd with a couple heavies
And lay the barrel to the ground, hold the gat steady
And now I'm ready for my adversary, talk is cheap
I'm looking for a way to make a plan gonna keep it neat
So don't be telling me to get the non-violent spirit
'cause when I'm violent is the only time the devils hear it
'cause all I want to see is m****f***ing brains hanging
