Today's World Census Report
The Most Extreme in The Milky Way Galaxy
The World Census developed the following ranking based on a rather vague survey of nations to uncover 'odd or fundamentalist social, economic, or political systems'.
As a region, The Milky Way Galaxy is ranked 8,227th in the world for Most Extreme.

|2.||The All-Consuming Plague of Neo-Mekanta||Corporate Police State||“EXAMINE - EVOLVE - EXTERMINATE”|

The Milky Way Galaxy Regional Message Board
Do you not know? All Men Desire Socialism. All Men Desire To Be Told What To Do By Father Government. Free Thought Is Evil.
Depending on what part of the world you're from, some people seem to act that way... :\
Mandatory neutering is the exact opposite of "causing people to accept responsibility for their actions", though. It's the government saying "we don't trust you to deal with this issue yourselves, so we're removing your choice".
It would also wipe out the dog breeding industry (which exists), and I'd be surprised if you hadn't taken a hit to economic freedoms too.
what do you guys think of somehow using the mass/gravity of gas giants to open wormholes to other star systems as a concept for FTL travel?
yes they're halo ships shut up im not creative
That's a very interesting concept. I've no idea how it would work, but I enjoy it for the story. Constantly needing to find sufficient mass to jump, as it were, could really put your ships in sticky situations.
Or maybe the ships could have warp drives, but they have cooldown periods and are not as fast as wormhole-based travel?
Having two different methods would just add cost and reduce space on ships. It also doesn't make a lot of sense, as the more convenient one would make the other obsolete, as is what usually happens.
Alternatively, there could be different methods for different purposes, eg. long distance and short-distance - it would make them less efficient though, like the old submarines used to do - diesel for surface travel, electric for submerged. But that doesn't mean you can't do it. It can be helpful to define technical limits.
now see that's what I was thinking. Warp drive-based FTL would be (comparatively) inexpensive and be ship-based, meaning the system is on the ship itself, with the downside being that it's inefficient, slow, and in order to jump long distances you would need to drop out of warp every so often to let the drive cool down. Mass drives (working title) would be drastically faster and have a near-infinite range, the downsides being that it requires something with considerable mass (in order to essentially collapse a point in spacetime) and would not actually fit on the ships, meaning it's something attached to a spacecraft.
