  • The Stellar Cloud: Missile Ships and Stealth Technology – 10/23/2014

    Missiles ships. They are a familiar sight in the original Takamo: wild hell-bent-for-leather raids where missile-armed raiders of five ships or less swoop into planetary orbit, launch their missiles and scramble to get out alive. These will most certainly continue to be a feature of Takamo Universe. Read More

  • The Stellar Cloud: Exo-What? Exobiotics and Exobotanics – 10/17/2014

    Alien biological life and alien botanical life. Those will be two vital fields of study for your exploration teams and your research and development teams in Takamo Universe. Alien creatures and plants will be valuable commodities in the Five Galaxies. Read More

It is about the tendency to consolidate entire sectors before moving out to claim other worlds. It is a natural desire to make sure the areas (in this case the star systems) around you are safe and free of threats. Read More

The Empire Between Your Ears – 10/8/2014

I just read about how Mantox’s Grief, a black hole in the Aster Nebula, came to be. I also learned what happened to the Maugham refugees after the I-AM-I cybers destroyed the Maugham homeworld. I never knew this about Takamo and the Estra Galaxy. That is interesting since I created it. Read More
