2023.06.01 04:22 throw-away22334455 Hey there, Hot Stuff…

I know you’ll never see this letter, and I suppose I should be grateful for that, but I still feel so stupid for writing it. Stupid because there’s no reason my feelings should be this strong and my heart should hurt this badly. We were only talking for a few short weeks but, man, I fell HARD and I fell FAST. But now it’s all over and I’m left here to pick up the pieces. I’m sure you’re happy with her, and that’s great. I want you to be happy. But I want to be happy too. So, in an attempt to help heal my broken heart, I just wanted to write down (almost) all the things I’ll never get to say:
-When you first messaged me after we matched for the 4th time in as many years, you said “the universe just wants us to be together.” I responded by saying “and who are we to tell the universe it’s wrong?” Well, we called the universe’s bluff and now I feel like I’m the one paying the price for it. You get to move on and fall in love and I get to sit at home, too afraid to go out anywhere in case I run into you. If I need to drive through your neighborhood to get somewhere, I’ll take a longer route just to avoid the possibility of seeing you.
-I still walk the dog on that nature trail and by the park where we had our first date. I feel safe there because you didn’t know it existed before I told you about it, and there’s a very slim chance you’ll ever go back. It’s the dog’s favorite route to walk along though, so I still take him every day after work. But it breaks my heart to be there because all I can think of is you, and our conversation, and the way my head rested perfectly on your chest when we hugged because you’re so tall, and the way your lips felt pressed against mine.
-the dog is on a diet and I hate that every time I feed him, the sound of kibble and chicken falling into his bowl is replaced with your laughter as you said “aww no look at him, he ain’t missing no meals!” He was wary of you, but oddly enough I think he misses you. When we pass by someone on our walks that looks even remotely like you, his tail will wag uncontrollably and he tries to jump on them. He still growls a bit, but he just seems sad when he realizes it’s not you. I do too.
-I hate doing laundry now because doing laundry means I need to open the closet door where the washer and dryer are. The same door you picked me up and pressed me up against, my legs wrapped around your waist, when you did everything you could to turn me into putty in your hands. I want to pull those doors off the hinges so I don’t have to look at them every day.
-You ruined chocolate chip cookies for me. They were my favorite midnight snack and now all I think about is baking late-night, post-sex cookies with you. I’ve been fortunate to live my entire life without any allergies, but now it feels like just one cookie will kill me. Even when I pass by the pre-made dough in the grocery store, I can feel my heart constrict and my throat close up.
-You ruined Star Wars for me. I thought it was so cute how you, a chemistry nerd, never saw the penultimate nerd series. I was excited for our plans to have a movie marathon. I was excited to show you to the galaxy. Now I stop the microwave before the timer hits 0:00 because it sounds like R2-D2 and it makes me lose my appetite.
-I bought new lingerie I was hoping to surprise you with. It arrived in the mail after we stopped talking. I can’t even force myself to try them on to make sure the sizes are correct. They’re just sitting in a drawer with the tags still on, collecting dust. I used to feel sexy and confident in my underwear. Now I feel like a sheepish little girl, too afraid to undress in the locker room before PE class.
-I told you I didn’t want kids, and that only one man in my entire life truly made me consider starting a family, but that he hurt me so badly I was completely sworn off. That was a lie. Maybe not at first, but it became a lie. When I found out you had a kid, after the shock and hurt subsided, there was a second man I could see holding my child in his arms. You. A gorgeous little creature who would be the best parts of you and me put together. Now I fear that if I ever have children, I’ll resent them because they won’t be half of you.
-I hate that every time I see a car like yours, my heart skips a beat. I almost got into an accident the other day because I thought I passed you on my way into town. I’m afraid to drive now because all I do is look out for your car, wondering if you’re looking out for mine.
-I hate how deeply I care about you, and how I wish you nothing but the purest love and happiness. I hate that I can’t hate you. It would all be so much easier if I hated you. I wouldn’t be hurting so much. I could chalk this all up to the fact that you’re an asshole. A player. You used me and threw me away. But that’s not you. You’re kind and caring and gentle and, if I had only given us a proper chance, I could have known what it would feel like to be truly loved by you.
-I hate that I swallowed my pride and apologized, when I honestly didn’t have much to apologize for, only to be met with silence. My pride was all I had left, and now that’s gone too. And I especially I hate how pathetic and desperate this all sounds. After my last serious heartbreak, I put so much time and effort into myself, and I reminded myself that I am amazing and anyone is lucky to have me. Now I’m back to apologizing for using up oxygen.
-I hate that I believed you when you said you still wanted me, desired me, even though I could feel the distance between us growing larger. And I hate that now you’re so cold, so indifferent. I hate that you act like it was all just in my head. Even if it was, I wish you would just say that instead of leaving me with radio silence. It would be easier to understand that maybe I really am just obsessive or crazy, than to be left wondering how it all went wrong. But I know there’s nothing to wonder about. You said that if you didn’t want to talk to me, you wouldn’t. It appears you are a man of your word. I just wish I took you at your word when I still had the chance.
-You said I don’t know you or understand you, and I hate that you’re right. I hate that you don’t know or understand me either. We never gave each other the chance to. And I hate that we’ll probably never get that chance again.
-I want you to be happy, and I hope she does make you happy. But, like I said, I want to be happy too. I want to be with you. I want to hear your laugh again, see your perfect smile again, hear your heart beat as I lay on your chest again. I want to feel you in me again, holding me tightly. I want to sit on the swing with you, my legs across your lap as I listen to you tell me all your wildest stories. I want to feel your lips press against my forehead as you slip out of bed. I just want to feel like you care again. Even if it was all in my head.
I know we may never speak again, but I want you to know that I will always want you. And I hate that. But I don’t hate you. Not even a little bit.
Yours, always.

The Digital Hypno Human vs Robot Challenge

Do you think you can tell which Hypnosis Script intro was written by ChatGPT and which was written by a Professional Hypnotherapist?
Are you willing to risk being right or wrong by making a decision?
For just a little bit of fun, I'll post 5 x different Hypnosis/Guided Meditation Script intros, and comment as to whether you think it was written by a human or AI.

-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-Intro #1 - Journey of Mindfulness:

Welcome. This session is designed to guide you to a place of peace and present-mindedness. Begin by adjusting your breathing, finding a slow and controlled rhythm. With each inhale, imagine drawing in the fresh, clean air, and with each exhale, let go of tension and stress, as if it were a puff of grey smoke dispersing into the ether. This is your time, your space.
Imagine now that you are in a deep, lush forest, surrounded by towering trees that have stood the test of time. As you breathe in, feel the cool forest breeze that carries with it the rustling whispers of the leaves, a delicate earthy scent, and the nurturing essence of nature. Each breath you take makes you feel more and more a part of this vibrant forest scene.
Now, let's embark on a journey of mindfulness, a journey that anchors us in the present moment. As you traverse the forest in your mind, notice the rough texture of the bark as you gently run your fingers along a tree, the sound of a distant stream bubbling, and the way the forest floor feels beneath your feet. This journey isn't about reaching a destination, it's about being here, now. Every sensation you experience, every breath you take, is a gentle reminder to stay present.
Remember, this journey is for you. Encourage yourself, for each step taken in mindfulness brings you closer to inner peace and tranquility. Breathe in the forest, breathe in the present moment, and when you're ready, take one last deep breath, hold it, and release it slowly, letting the serene calmness wash over you.

-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-Intro #2 - Universal Silver Light:

Close your eyes and take in a deep breath. Let the breath go all the way down to your abdomen, then breathe all the way back up. Allow yourself to continue breathing in and out, up and down, as you sink deeper into the chair, feeling more comfortable.
Now, as you start to focus on your breath and all the other pleasant feelings it creates, recognize that with each breath, your body is becoming more relaxed and comfortable. It's almost as though there is a white silver light washing over your body as your breath travels up towards the top of your head. It explodes out into the universe like a shower of energy, and then just as quickly, it travels back down over your entire body as you breathe in and down to your toes, grounding you back into the center of the earth.
By doing this you are giving yourself the gift of deeper connection and oneness with everything around you, bringing a greater sense of peace & harmony, as a foundation for creating long-lasting, positive changes, by harnessing the infinite power of the universe and earth.

-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-Intro #3 - Landscape of Your Life:

Sit back, relax & close your eyes and allow this journey to help restore equilibrium in your mind, body, and spirit. To start, focus on the pattern of your breath, a simple yet powerful tool. Take a deep, full breath in, filling your lungs completely. Hold this breath for a moment, allowing the oxygen to fully saturate your system. Now, slowly let it out, taking twice as long to exhale as you did to inhale. This slow release helps signal your nervous system to switch into a state of rest and relaxation, quieting the chatter of the mind.
Visualize yourself standing on top of a majestic mountain. From here, you can see the world sprawled out below you, its chaos and noise merely a whisper carried away by the wind. The air is clear and cool, tinged with the crisp scent of mountain trees. As you breathe in this pure air, feel it cleanse your body and spirit, wiping away stress and negativity. Each exhalation is a step further into tranquility, your breath echoing the gentle breeze that sweeps across the mountain top.
Embark on a journey of rejuvenation. With every slowing breath, imagine yourself tapping into an unlimited source of energy deep within you. This journey is about revitalization, not just physically, but also emotionally and psychologically. As you look out from your mountain top, consider each element of the landscape as a part of your life. Perhaps the river in the distance represents your emotions, the forest your relationships, the open sky your dreams. Breathe in the healing air, knowing that with each breath, you are nurturing these aspects of your life.
This practice is a gift you're giving to yourself, a testament to your innate ability to regulate and balance your body and mind. Each slow, intentional breath is a step towards a better you. As you continue to breathe deeply and slowly, feel the calming effects washing over you, enhancing your capability to create positive change now.

-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-Intro #4 - Quantum Healing:

Sit back, relax, and close your eyes. Now, just imagine that with each breath, a radiant, healing light infuses every cell and atom of your body, energizing and harmonizing them. This light represents the powerful quantum field that underpins all of reality, capable of manifesting profound transformation. You're floating amongst fluffy clouds, surrounded by the tranquil hum of the cosmos, a testament to the vibrational nature of existence.
This journey you're on is one of quantum healing and epigenetic change. Feel the energy and vibration within you, aligning with the frequency of wellness, balance, and positivity. Visualize this light, drawn in with your breath, influencing your genes on a profound level, turning on codes of health, resilience, and vitality.
You're harnessing the vibrational essence of your being, focusing it on manifesting positive changes in your life. Continue this process of mindful quantum change, aware that each breath you take, each vibrational shift you make, brings you closer to your optimal self.

-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-🌀-Intro #5 - Your Inner Jedi - Star Wars

Close your eyes and allow yourself to go on a journey across the galaxies, to bring balance to your mind, body, and spirit - much like the balance sought by the Jedi and Sith in the Star Wars universe. Focus on your breath, the natural Force within you, as powerful and tranquil as the Jedi Masters themselves. Inhale deeply, filling your lungs with life-sustaining oxygen, then hold, allowing the breath to saturate every cell in your body. Exhale slowly and notice as this rhythm mimics the gentle pulse of the Force, signaling to enter a deeper state of peace and relaxation.
Now, let your mind drift even more now to the shifting sand dunes of Tatooine. This harsh, yet strangely beautiful landscape symbolizes the shifting nature of life. Each grain of sand is like a moment in time, insignificant on its own yet contributing to the vast oceans of sand, just as each moment contributes to the vastness of your life. The undulating dunes remind you of life's duality, the rise and fall, the constant flux and flow. Feel the warm sand underfoot, the dry wind in your hair, the intense sun on your skin. Let these sensations ground you in the present moment, reminding you of your resilience and adaptability.
Using the inherent Force within you, this voyage is about revitalizing your inner self; physically, emotionally and psychologically. Picture the vast cosmos before you, each celestial body representing an aspect of your life. The tranquil moons symbolize your emotions, the vibrant stars your dreams & ambitions, the infinite galaxies your limitless potential. Breathe in the cosmic energy, trusting that with each breath, you're nurturing and balancing these elements of your existence.
This a testament to your innate ability to control and harmonize your inner galaxy. Every slow, purposeful breath brings you closer to the Jedi-like tranquility and strength within you. As you continue to breathe in rhythm with the Force, feel the calming effects washing over you, getting stronger and stronger with each breath, increasing your ability to create positive change in your own universe.
---- So which of these are written by a human and which are written by AI (ChatGPT with some detailed prompting)?

2023.06.01 03:44 AlfredoThayerMahan Beyond the Lightspeed Horizon: Carrier Doctrine in a Galaxy Far Far Away

Between May 4th and May 8th 1942, the first naval battle that occured beyond the visual horizon took place. While the Battle of The Coral Sea was somewhat indecisive, with both the Japanese and Americans seeing significant losses although the Japanese largely ceded the body of water thereafter, the kind of engagement it typified bears remembrance, one where neither side directly sighted each-other with surface vessels. You cannot hit what you cannot see, a lesson the Japanese learned all too well a month later near a small sandy dot called “Midway”.
Eighty years hence and the lesson remains the same. It doesn’t matter how impressive or unstoppable your weapon is, if you do not know what you are shooting at, it is useless. Where in the past scout planes would make visual contact with the enemy, tools like RORSATs, NOSS, SOSUS, Over The Horizon and Synthetic Aperture Radars, and more have become the staple for detecting, classifying, and tracking contacts.
The mistake common among most people and even military enthusiasts is to assume the greatest weapon a carrier has in its defense is its fighters. Consider the Survivability Onion (not pictured). While this statement can be somewhat true, from a certain point of view, the carrier’s ability to detect the threat via their AWACs, and the ability to attack beyond the visual horizon is its greatest defense. Both of these steps allow the Carrier to remain hidden. In most cases it is fairly easy to track a Battleship that has come to shell you. Even if it is doing so beyond the horizon, counter-battery radar can give you a good picture of its location just based on the trajectory of its shells, potentially good enough to fire a spread of anti-ship missiles at it. By using deceptive return paths, a carrier can make such tracking more difficult, not to mention more dangerous with a CAP.
To remain hidden is what keeps ships alive. Spaceborne ISR platforms have stripped this fog of war back somewhat, but the basic concept of the horizon is critical to understanding how to utilize carriers in Star Wars.
Putting the “A” in “CVA”
There are a number of real life carrier doctrines to consider as each approached usage slightly differently. NATO nations, led by the United States, viewed the carrier as largely an offensive tool. Of the three major NATO carrier nations, the U.S., the U.K., and France, the U.K. would eventually lose it’s offensive capability with the retirement of the last of the Audacious and Centaur Class carriers and their Phantom and Buccaneer aircraft while France would maintain the offensive role of their carriers though to a more limited capacity due to simply having fewer of them. That being said, outside of the U.S. for much of the Cold War and early 21st century, carriers were largely used as a method of ASW and point-defense interception. For the Soviets this was their Kiev Class with Yak-38 and Yak-141 interceptors and rotary wing ASW and AWACs aircraft, meant to protect their SSBN Bastions from hounding P-3 Orions and NATO SSNs. Even the later Kuznetsov, if it ever actually works, is a defensive tool with the aircraft largely lacking in the capability to attack targets. For the Brits the effect of their transition was demonstrated in the Falklands where Harriers constituted much of their fleet air defense but lacked the range, speed, and loiter time to perform fully in the “Outer Air Battle” or to perform much in the way of strike or air support.
This difference is best illustrated by the designation American Fleet Carriers possessed for a time, CVA*, the “Attack” Carrier. CVA is not a physical change in an aircraft carrier, CVs were changed to CVAs and back again depending on era, rather it denotes its usage. This originated in early nuclear weapon doctrine where carriers were viewed as forward airfields to launch nuclear strikes into the Soviet Union. Later this evolved to attacking the SSBN Bastion in the Barents Sea along with targets on the Kola Peninsula with a similar arrangement with the Sea of Okhotsk and Kamchatka Peninsula in the Pacific.
To further understand this, it is important to look at the kinds of aircraft used by the U.S. Carriers and Supercarriers, most importantly their attack aircraft. The first of the long-range attack trend was the AJ Savage, meant as the first dedicated carrier nuclear delivery platform, with a range longer than the B-25. This trend continued with other dedicated nuclear delivery platforms such as the A-3 Skywarrior and A-5 Vigilante, with notable exception in the small A-4 Skyhawk but a trend which culminated in the A-6 Intruder and later Tomcat Quickstrike proposal.
So why bother? Why should such long-range strike platforms be developed even if they are going to attack relatively coastal installations? Well the answer is simple. Range is the carrier’s best armor but it comes at a cost. The longer the range the less ordinance an aircraft can carry, needing external fuel tanks. Maybe they need buddy tankers which reduces your strike force. Either way you are doing less damage and hitting fewer point targets. By using larger aircraft you can compensate for this, not needing to sacrifice pylons for fuel stores. At the same time by being far away you are harder to detect and engage. Both by shore installations and by reconnaissance aircraft. If they can only search X number of square kilometers per hour, by increasing that area you reduce the likelihood of being found by simple probability. With that kind of safety a carrier can be used in a high-intensity offensive capacity without undue risk to it. Sure, you could load up a Harrier with drop tanks and daisy chain buddy tankers to achieve the same range as an A-6 but the A-6 could probably do it without needing to sacrifice much in terms of payload, of which it carries far more and without or with only limited tankers support, freeing up more aircraft to carry out tasks. One is a gimmick, the other is an offensive tool.
*CVA is not a U.S. exclusive term, indeed the ill-fated British CVA-01 program bore the same designator.
Hyperspace: The Great Equalizer
In Star Wars, starfighters have two clear categories. Those with hyperdrives and those without. A starfighter with a hyperdrive is much like a long-range aircraft such as an F-14 or A-6, even if the crew requirements and footprint are nothing alike. An A-Wing has more in common with a Tomcat in this respect than a Tie-Bomber does, even if the Tie-Bomber was loaded up with anti-starfighter missiles. Those without hyperdrives are your Harriers or Yak-38 equivalents, limited in range and largely relegated to point defense.
Hyperspace creates a horizon behind which a carrier can hide. Simply a jump or two away and off the major hyperspace lanes, and they are beyond sensors and effectively untouchable unless the enemy has thousands of probes to search every nook and cranny you may have hidden. At the same time, if the carrier has hyperspace capable starfighters they have the ability to hit any given target within a fairly massive bubble with impunity and with a relatively low transit time. Conversely, if you were to use spacecraft without hyperdrives to attack a target you would leave the carrier detectable and thus vulnerable to attack by the enemy, losing the greatest advantage of a carrier: its stealth.
Consequently this is why hybrid Carrier-Battleship approaches in real life and in Sci-Fi generally fall short. To act as a Battleship, the Carrier gives up its stealth. There is a minor exception where the fighters are used to augment the air-defense of the "Battle-Carrier" rather than as offensive tools but this is the exception that makes the rule. Ironically, this exception makes the TIE fighter a good design for the Imperial Class to carry as the Star Destroyer doesn’t lose much by getting within detection range of a target while having smaller and cheaper starfighters to augment its air-defense.
To properly utilize a dedicated carrier with Hyperspace technology, not only should they be at the back of the formation, but the carriers should be completely disconnected from the ongoing conventional battle, operating in an entirely different region of space.
The Air Defense Problem
In real life the air defense of a battlegroup can largely be divided into three sections.
First is the outer air battle. This task is carried out by the Defensive Counter-Air Combat Air Patrol (DCA-CAP) ranged out along the threat axis to destroy the enemy force before they either detect the Battlegroup or get within their weapons employment zone. This task is supplemented by extremely long-range Surface to Air Missiles such as SM-6, with several Cold War programs going so far as to propose a Surface-to-Air Boost-Glide Vehicle (LORAINE) to hit scouting aircraft at over 500 nautical miles away. Additionally use of SAM traps, ships that are not emitting and have targeting cued off of other platforms such as fighters and AWACs, further supplements the use of fighters in this theater of operations. Obviously these SAM platforms are at risk but the most valuable unit of a battlegroup is the carrier so the potential sacrifice of one is seen as a worthwhile trade if it can break an incoming raid.
Moving on we have the inner air battle, or area air-defense, which is within detection range by the enemy force and typically within their weapon employment zones. This is handled by the fighters that are assigned to point-defense and by the medium range SAM systems such as RIM-66 and earlier versions of RIM-67*, SM-2MR and SM-2ER respectively. Oftentimes this is typically engaging weapons such as incoming anti-ship missiles.
Finally is the point-defense arena where weapons such as CIWS and ESSM take play and is exclusively, with a few exceptions, dedicated to engaging incoming weapons and largely centered around the self-protection of the ship in question.
The ranges for these engagement envelopes are highly dependent, variable based on range of enemy detection, range of your own sensors, range of weapons, and other factors.
Star Wars complicates the matters somewhat with how Hyperspace interferes with the situation. For this we must first divide the situation into two independent bubbles of space. First is the space around the enemy installation, ship, carrier, etc, and second is the space around your own battlegroup.
In general, the entirety of your own bubble of space is the “inner-air battle”. In this area your point-defense fighters can engage the enemy along with most of your defensive systems depending on how you interpret the range of weapons in Star Wars. At the same time the enemy can detect you and there’s a good chance you are within their own weapons employment zone if you can hit them.
So where is the “outer-air battle” in this scenario? Well that’s complicated. Typically the thinking is that you intercept the enemy force as they try to make their way to you. The problem is, in Star Wars this is impossible to do in hyperspace without specific tools. This tool is an Interdictor vessel. Such a vessel, if placed along the threat axis, would prematurely pull the enemy force out of hyperspace, allowing you to engage with your own hyperspace capable fighters while not putting your own force at risk. Of course the Interdictor is at risk, much like the AAW ship in a SAM trap but that is a calculated risk that must be made to force an engagement that isn’t ideal for the enemy.
There is an obvious issue with this usage. You don’t know where the enemy force is going to come from if they are willing to probe around for alternative hyperspace routings. This makes your chances of actually intercepting them exceedingly low as they aren’t really operating on limited fuel unless you’re engaging forces halfway across the Galaxy and even then it would be easy to take other hyperspace routes to avoid your interdictor screen. So, with general standoff defensive measures void, logically the best defense in case of a Raid Warning is to simply go to hyperspace and make a couple jumps to a pre-planned secondary or tertiary location thus voiding any targeting information provided by the enemy ISR. In this respect detection of a carrier group would be hard but pinning them and attacking them if an Interdictor isn’t immediately available is basically impossible.
As a result the traditional Outer-Air Battle, in the vast expanses of space between the enemy airbase and your own carrier, doesn’t really have the opportunity to take place. However, there is one place you know the enemy force will be, around their own carriers/airbase. This is the equivalent of a U.S. carrier force sending F-14s to blast Backfires over the Kola Peninsula. Not impossible but generally ill-advised as now the enemy can use all their fighters, long-range and point-defense while you only have access to your long-range fighters.
At this point, if you are getting that close to the enemy you might as well engage their carriers to more efficiently destroy their strike generation capability. This turns the Defensive Counter-Air (Counter-space? IDK, I’m going to stick with the Earthling lingo) mission into an Offensive Counter-Air mission where you compensate for your lower numbers by hitting them on the ground or in the ship. This divides yourself into two kinds of engagements. First is protecting your own fleet before they get to hyperspace and second is to attack and destroy the enemy fleet before they go to hyperspace.
This gets to the problem of invading or for that matter, defending a planet. If you park your carrier in a planet’s orbit you are reducing the volume you could be into a tiny pinprick, you’ve basically done half the enemy’s targeting for them. Even worse, depending on how close you are, you may not be able to go to hyperspace immediately, meaning that disengagement could be impossible at the worst time. You may as well have a land base as at least that would be more survivable in the kinetic sense and be easier to work on than a ship.
*Later versions of the RIM-67 and the RIM-156 (also designated SM-2ER though this was launched from the Mk-41 VLS instead of the older twin-arm launchers that the RIM-67 used), would employ active radar and terminal IR seekers. This allowed engagement beyond the horizon against low-flying targets based on cuing by AWACs, potentially into the range where it would fall into the Outer Air Battle.
Hyperspace creates a unique set of circumstances that make offensive action against fixed positions/fleets very easy while making mobile and evasive battlegroups very difficult to engage. This sort of doctrine is best seen in the Rebel Alliance and their employment of hyperspace capable fighters, striking with relative impunity at Imperial targets without risking their major fleet assets. There is no reason this cannot scale up to major Galactic powers as it provides a disproportionate offensive and defensive capability for the practitioners of the doctrine.

2023.06.01 03:42 darthfyer The Clone Wars Complete Series Idea - 30th Anniversary Special Edition #CompleteTheCloneWars Spoilers

Disclaimer - I realise these ideas are probably thrown around time after time, but I wanted to voice my opinion on the potential future of The Clone Wars.
The Clone Wars 30th Anniversary [Star Wars 50th] - The animation is fully re-worked for the entire series to be uniform and be on par with season 7 or Bad Batch.
I realise that re-animating The Clone Wars in its entirety is more of a dream for me and would be an incredibly tall task. It’ll likely never happen. Along the lines of the original trilogy being re-released as special editions, this too could serve as a ‘special edition’ of The Clone Wars as the technology wasn’t available at the time - similar reason to why George updated the OT. No plot points would be changed in existing episodes ala Han and Greedo, just an upgraded visual appearance across the series. Maybe additional details added to the background, like characters or species that have been created since. This could also allow for additional stories to be included in earlier seasons and still aesthetically fit. It would also add more immersive visuals to existing episodes.
8 or 9 seasons. Every episode would be in timeline order. (In the first 4 seasons of The Clone Wars, there are episodes that aired out of order. Some of them several seasons apart from another.) The movie arc would also be incorporated in to season 1.
Existing stories not included in The Clone Wars. These are first priority:
Crystal Crisis on Utapau [This adds clarification to General Grievous’ hideout on Utapau. It also shows the initial intentions for Kyber crystals - later to be used for the Death Star.]
Son of Dathomir [This addresses where Maul has been before we see him in Season 7. It gives better clarity and flow to Maul’s story and the Shadow Collective.]
Dark Disciple [This addresses the conclusion of a core Clone Wars character. Asajj Ventress receives a concluding story that is otherwise not seen visually. While it was incorporated into a book, actual episodes would be crucial.]
Return to Mon Cala [there are canon inconsistencies with Nossor Ri, this arc needs to be reworked]
Return to the Jedi Temple [Inconsistencies with canon with Anakin/Vader. Vader later notes he never knew of the Sith shrine. This could be incorporated into the arc in a way that makes Anakin want to forget or simply made him forget. It otherwise needs to be reworked to not include Anakin. This arc could incorporate Grogu appearing in the background as well as some other Jedi that have been later revealed via flashbacks - Kelleran Bec, Jaro Tapal, etc.]
Yuuzahn Vong [The Yuuzahn Vong are currently not part of canon. So this arc may be best left behind or repurposed into a later series. Post Return of the Jedi ala OG Thrawn Trilogy?]
Bounty Hunter [This is canon due to Boba Fett’s helmet dent and further clarified by Cad Bane’s appearance in post order 66 canon stories. It’s crucial that this is made]
Kashyyyk [This would be a beautiful arc to see. It would also introduce the relationship Yoda has with the Wookiees]
Rex and R2 Top Gun [A fun arc that would be interesting to see realised.]
Additional stories or ideas I’d like to see. These are just stories I feel would help connect the established stories and characters of the ‘new canon’:
Maybe a Thrawn arc. To have visuals of Thrawn’s emergence and also Thrawn, Anakin and Padme on Batuu would be amazing. This has already been written by Timothy Zahn, but animated episodes would be great to see.
Maybe a General Grievous origin story. Not necessarily required, but would make a fascinating story. This wouldn’t have to be an arc, unless it’s incorporated into something else.
Possibly some sort of tie-in or reference to the High Republic? Maybe a throw away line that mentions the Hetzal system and the Legacy Run disaster (I realise that happened 200-300 years prior, but perhaps some sort of event happens and that is mentioned. It would be a great way to acknowledge the High Republic and confirm it is part of the history. Maybe a high Republic logo is seen somewhere in the background in the archives or something?
Maybe another Separatist oriented arc, showing the human side to the Separatists. Maybe Lux is involved? This was already explored, so this isn’t necessarily required.
Another story (not necessarily an arc) that would be nice to see, but not necessary, an origin story of Hera and Chopper. We see the crashed Y-Wing in Rebels, but that’s all we find out. A fleshed out story would be great to see.
An order 66 arc could show how the inquisitors are captured and turned. Not all of them, but maybe a select few? Maybe The Grand Inquisitor as a temple guard as well as another two or three Jedi.
Finally, I’d like to see a story of Barriss Offee and where she ended up. It’d be great to see her as an early inquisitor or some sort of enemy to the inquisitors?
The biggest pitfall with the new or unproduced arcs is the absenge of Tom Kane’s amazing voice talent. There are two ways to go about this. For Yularen and Yoda in particularly, the obvious would be to re-cast the voices. The other is to use the same technology that was used for The Mandalorian to bring back a certain character. The first is cheaper, but the second is more authentic. If a re-cast was to occur, Yularen would need to be incredibly near identical in my opinion.
What other stories would you like to see animated in a completed version of The Clone Wars?

2023.06.01 03:41 ThewarriorDraganta [Server] Avalon By Night -A V:tDA 1x1 Play-By-Post RP!

So, I have an idea for a Vampire: The Masquerade/Dark Ages Play-by-Post RP that I've wanted to do for ages, but I'm also open to any ideas you guys have for any plots or things you may want to add! This is a favourite of mine.
Set during the late 1190s, after the Third Crusade and towards the end of Richard the Lionheart's reign, our characters would scour the British Isles searching for the resting place of the legendary Arthur Pendragon, The Once-and-Future-King. The plot would mainly focus on action-adventure rather than political intrigue (although that's not to say there wouldn't be any at all) and mix heavily with other WoD settings to feel a bit like post-eclipse Berserk or Netflix Castlevania. Maybe your character is under the command of Prince Mithras, sent to retrieve Excalibur for his own nefarious purposes? Maybe your character believes themselves to be a worthy successor to the legacy of Arthur? Who knows?
What I’m mostly looking for in a partner includes:
Mechanically, this will use VtDA, but only for character creation purposes, the game will be through text-based roleplay. If you have any questions, please let me know!
If you've read this far and find this ad appealing (and I sincerely hope you do), please PM me or HMU in chat (preferably a PM, chat is crap!) with a little about yourself and maybe a character idea. Also, please do not message with just one word since low-effort messages are REALLY off-putting.
I look forward to playing with you!
P.S. To prove that you've read this all the way through, please include your favourite Star Wars quote in your first message to me. Low-effort messages will be ignored! ^-^

2023.06.01 02:39 dverfuss [Online][Star Wars FFG][EST] Unsung Heroes is looking for more Players!

Welcome to the age of the Rebellion! With the recent destruction of the Death Star, the Empire has been on the hunt for Rebels and is cracking down even more than usual. This amid rumors of Force Users once again being spotted in the Galaxy has led to a time of Hope, but also fear. Join me as well tell the stories of the Men and Woman who live in this tumultuous time. What Story will you tell?
Hello! My name is Dylan and I am looking for more players for my Star Wars FFG homebrew game. We are hoping to have our session 0 this Saturday at 9pm EST (June 3). The Story we tell together will be based on the characters you, the players, make. If you have any interest at all, send me a message on Reddit or Discord (DVerfuss#0348). I hope you hear from you soon. And to see you soon in a Galaxy Far Far Away.

2023.06.01 01:56 dmg81102 I'm not out yet, but still wanted to know if it was safe to go to Florida on vacation?

My mother wants us to go and is HELLBENT on doing so. She specifically wants to go to Disney so we can see the Galaxy's Edge Star Wars exhibit (both of us like Star Wars and I'll admit I'd REALLY like to experience it) I keep trying to tell her it's not very safe down in Florida at the moment but she says "it's not bad, you're just overreacting, and besides, I'm not letting that stop me" I'm not out as trans, but I am out as bi, and fairly confidentiality too. My mother might be right and I'm just overreacting, but to be safe I wanted to ask around to be sure, thanks in advance for any replies :)

2023.06.01 01:44 Kheiossar_Chronicler Sunset over Zool

It was a beautiful evening on Dir, and for Yirrahk, it will only improve. He and Urrirr met four years ago, on a beautiful day like this, a day of the Qhaf-Festival and instantly fell in love. The two Ca were inseparable ever since and now, on this day four years later, Yirrahk was planning to propose and ask for Urrirr’s Hand in marriage. He even planned everything in advance! They would go to a hill overlooking the city, where he already prepared a little picnic with their favourite food, only lit up by the bright stars up ahead.
He was taken away from his thoughts, as he hears Urrirr’s voice calling out towards him.
“Yirrahk! My love! Is your head in your projects again? You know, you should really take a break. The trains will run without you.”
His remark was joking and loving as usual, but it helped and put a smile on Yirrahks face. Or was it more the sight of his love, whom he couldn’t see the entire week? Might have been that as well, who’s to say? He felt the warm and loving embrace of his partners’ feathers and soon thereafter felt the tender and soft brush of their beaks touching. A relaxed chirp escaped his beak as he relaxes and enjoys the moment.
After resting like this for some time, they loosened their embrace, their eyes still tied to each other. “I missed you…” Yirrahk made the first move to break the silence. “And I missed you my love”, replied Urrirr.
Yirrahk took his mate's claw and lead him away from the station they were standing at. “I hope you aren’t tired yet dear because I have a lot planned tonight!” Yirrahk jested back as they walked through the crowd towards the edge of the city. “Seems like someone can’t wait to propose to me?” As Urrirr joked, Yirrahk felt his feathers stand up and his face starting to blush. How does he know? Does he know at all? Maybe it was just a joke, it surely must have been! Right?
Urrirr noticed Yirrahk’s pace getting a bit slower and nuzzled his beak on his neck. “I am joking my love, don’t worry about it… Although after four years of being together with me, you should know that I want nothing more than to spend the rest of my life together with you.” Now Yirrahk was really blushing and his face became a bright red. Luckily, Urrirr couldn’t see it from the back, but a warmth encompassed Yirrahk’s whole mind and heart. “Thank you… that means a lot to me… and I feel the exact same way about you… now come! There is something I want to show you.”
Reinvigorated, the two continued their short walk outside the city. While they were in the capital of the newly independent Republic of Zool, the Ca as a species care for their planet’s environment and so all of their cities are green and calm and the air is never polluted or stale. However, coming out of the city and taking in the view over the neighbouring hills and mountains behind them was always a welcome and beautiful sight. The Republic of Zool lies inside a large valley, surrounded by mountains, which gave them the edge in the war of independence and will now shield them from outside aggressors.
After taking a casual hike, the two lovebirds arrived at the hill, where Yirrahk already prepared the picnic. In front of them was a cosy blanket spread on the floor, with food inside a basket. Due to the climate and the wildlife, they didn’t have to fear the food going bad so quickly or getting eaten.
The two sat down and got cosy, snuggled up to each other and covered themselves with a blanket. Decently warm like this, they shared food and looked over the city as the sun sank under the mountains and left the valley only with the light of the stars. They could observe as countless smaller lights got turned on all across the valley, illuminating it from above and below. As the light isn’t too much and didn’t drown out the light of the stars or bother the wildlife, it put the republic in a mystic aura. The sight was magical and romantic. Yirrahk enjoyed being in his love's gentle embrace and chirped happily, but at the same time, he couldn’t help but feel anxious. What if Urrirr does not say yes? What if they are just very good friends after all? What if it is too soon and he is moving too quickly? As the thoughts raced through his head, the sky in front of them lit up brightly twice. First, at the cusp of the festivities, when fireworks illuminated the day. Explosions of all forms and colours sparked up for a brief moment before the sky became dark again, only lighted by the stars. The lights reflected in both of their eyes, full of wonder.
Yirrahk used the moment to loosen himself off the embrace and reached for something in the basket. He held a specially coloured feather towards Urrirr and with a voice sated in love, he finally asked the question. "Urrirr my beloved… do you want to be my Husband and Mate?" With tears in his eyes, Urrirr nodded and with a shaking hand took the feather and put it in his head plume, where the green feather was surrounded by yellow and blue. With both of them either close to tears or crying, they embraced each other, chirping lovingly.
Far above them in the night sky of Dir, a rare spectacle unravelled itself: the second time the sky lit up brightly. Urrirr and Yirrahk looked up and a smile spread on their faces. Far above them in the sky, a spectacle of light illuminated the night sky. They could see beams of red and blue and purple and green and orange; short bursts of yellow and red; moving stars of white and blue, too many to count.
Urrirr turns towards Yirrahk and with a voice drenched in love he said: “It seems like even the stars above approve of our bond!” “Yes, it seems that way, with a good sign hanging above our bond forever more.”
The two birds would go on to spend the night on this hill, overlooking the valley and returned to the festivities the next day. This time not as friends, but as Husbands and Lovers.

2023.06.01 00:31 crazicelt Possible Conntions between ME:4 and ME:OT & MEA

(Disclaimer I know we know next to nothing about the next Mass effect game. This is just for fun don't want to participate, then don't.)
Now, I have recently recently replayed the whole Saga looking for threads to see how the next Mass Effect game (ME:4) could connect to the OT and ME:A.
Now, as the OT has few threads beyond pure speculation of what happened to the galaxy after the war? I will be leaning heavily on Andromeda and the glaring loose ends that were clearly meant for DLC and a sequel. Plus, the few teases we have gotten.
I made notes throughout my playthrough of potential threads. The summary of which follows.
Now the main threads left inME:A revolve around: * The Benefactor * The Kett Empire * The Jardaan/Remnant

The Benefactor.

Where did they get their resources?
And we are talking ridiculous amount resources.
Cerberus was apparently maxed out, making the Normandy SR2. The Arks and Nexus dwarf that. The only thing the Milky Way species built like that was the crucible, and that took multiple species and an extinction level event and complete designs.
To design, construct, and operate the 5 Arks & Nexus that undertaking dwarfs even the crucible. You're talking multi government level resources.
The council would make a good bet but they wouldn't do all this subterfuge once in Andromeda the easiest answer is a illuminati type deal where a bunch of power players all got involved to hedge their bets just in case. So Cerberus, Shadow Broker, Alliance, STG, some Asari Matriarchs people like Henry Lawson all pooling resources.
But I'm not so sure.
How did the Benefactor get in touch with the Kett?
A datapad in the Kett base (where moshae was kept) has communication between Benefactor and Hztch, mentioning transfer to base and showing of home worlds.
It's not the communication/infiltration that is interesting its the fact that the Benefactor showed, presumably, this Kett their homewold. And Hztch wants to reciprocate. If the Benefactor is a species or group from the Milky Way. How could they have shown them anything.
The Kett homewold is deeper in Andromeda, and their FTL is worse than the Milky Way ones over long distances, and the Initiative took 614 years to cross dark space.
That's a 1228-year round trip.
It doesn't matter if the Benefactor is Milky way based they would have to have FTL technology far beyond even the Reapers. Or a mass relay in Andromeda. Judging by the resources they can move isn't impossible.
How did they learn of the Reapers at least bare minimum 4 years before ME1?
This is simpler they talked to Liara before ME1. Or came to a similar conclusion Liara did.
Another option is that they found Jaadaan technologies and mistook it for Reaper technology.
Who is the Benefactor?
Could be anyone or anything. I'd rule out Cerberus at least in control as they don't use unshackled AI, and there are enemies of Cerberus who used the initiative to escape TIM. We know he likes loose ends tied up. Plus, this endeavour just seems beyond Cerberus in terms of resources.

The Kett Empire.

A generic Empire who kinda remind be of the Kobali from Star Trek cross with vampires. They have 21 pure lineages, and every Kett that serve under the Archon has his DNA. They are far beyond Milky Way with bio-engineering but less sophisticated in FTL (because Milky Way species had a jump start).
They use warp/Alcubierre drives (I bet that was part of the Goose chase FTL research humans did before discovering Mass Effect) decent at short range long range requires stais. "Vast" Empire but sounds feudal.
I don’t see the Kett connecting to ME4 in any way. At least not directly.

The Jardaan/Remnant.

The Jardaan are incomprehensibly advanced. In less than 8 centuries, they arrive, create massive subterranean vaults on planets, teraform a whole cluster of star systems, and design and create entirely new forms of organic life flora, fauna and sentient life. Able to make mini Dyson Spheres/ Hollow World that can move at FTL. Their technology is able to teraform countless worlds near instantly and simultaneously.
They use similar technologies to Milky Way in that they use Element Zero Drive core, but they are just beyond anything we've seen in Mass Effect.
We know at least 1 of the Kett Vassals worship the Jardaan Remnants The Thusali once worshipped remnant. This means the Jardaan did leave traces outside Heleus.

Mass Effect 4 teases

There are only 3 solid things that we know about ME4.

Theory and connections to ME4

In my opinion, the main connections that may appear in ME4 are around the Benefactor. They were operating in the Milky Way in the 2170s and 80s and had ridiculous resources.
It's possible the story may lead you to discover who the Benefactor is or put in opposition to them.
It could also be connected via the Geth. As the FTL telescope the initiative used was geth in Origin, they may find or be the link.
It could also connect by wanting reliable travel to Andromeda. They finally made contact, and the Alliance wants to make reliable journeys.
My off the wall theory
My theory is out there, but it explains some things. Like how the Benefactor was able to move so many resources, operate in 2 galaxies show the Kett their homeworld and how 2 games separated by 2.5 million light years and maybe centuries of time are connected in any way.
My theory is that the Benefactor is Jardaan.
Maybe they found Reaper technology or came into conflict with Reapers and wanted to protect the Milky Way species or whatever. But it fits.
Like they wanted to protect the milkey way species and guided them to the cluster, they just teraformed with planets suitable for every species. And it's not odd that out of every species, humans are able to train their brains quickest to manipulate Jardaan technology or that SAM is perfectly suited to it.
They guide the "life boats" to Heleus, but the scourge happens before the initiative arrive.
The Benefactor used numerous voices and faces rather than a disembodied voice like Shadow Broker, or a front like the Charlatan or agents like The Illusive man. Like they were trying to connect.
They might have been operating in 2 galaxies. They were wither from the Milky Way using resources and technology beyond anything we've seen, or they aren't from the Milky Way and are able to make trips between galaxies in decent time.
They have a vast amount of resources, and Jaadaan could get resources far easier than any Milky Way species. They converted whole worlds into assembly lines/factory's.
Plus, there is a reason humans are building Mass Relays. And a reason the council won't like it..
I'm curious as to what others think.
For fun want connections, if any, do you think there will be between ME:A and ME4?

2023.06.01 00:29 Bone3593 Which game should I get?

I've played all the heavy hitters, I'm mainly looking for a good single player game. I really enjoyed RE8, GT7, Horizon, Pavlov, and Walking Dead Chapter 2! I'm thinking either Moss Book 2 or Star Wars Galaxies edge. Of those 2 which one would you recommend?! I'm also fine with other recs, I have played Red Matter 2 on the Quest 2 so I'm not sure its worth buying again.
