Battle of Hypatia - Questions.

  1. It seems it wasn't possible to ram TUFT's before they deployed 12k missile pods. Coping with 98 BC with onboard missiles only could be much easier (2744 Cataphracts A, 686 missiles per RMN's ship). No Manty commander knew about Partian shot option. It would endanger civilians' evacuation, however.
  2. Knowing it is suicide mission, the question is - why Admiral Kotouč didn't release Marine complements

I did it again...

One day a month or two (perhaps more) ago, I was in need of something to read that would not disappoint so of course I picked up one of my Honor Harrington novels. It didn't matter which one, I've read them all multiple times.

But of course.. once I started, I had to read each one in the main time line. Now I have to get started on the "others" as well. 

When it comes to building my business, this is a HUGE distraction. I do tell myself that I am learning important lessons from Honor and her friends but that's just an excuse to once again dive in and disappear into a world where there are people who deserve to be admired.  Now if only they were real.

Latest Releases: Uncompromising Honor, Dark Fall

The latest Honor Harrington novel, Uncompromising Honor, by David Weber, was released by Baen Books on October 2, 2018, in Hardcover and eBook. This is HH14. 

Dark Fall, a new novelette by David Weber set in the Honorverse, was also released. It's available as a freebie from Baen's website; the October Free Fiction release. 

It provides the background behind the initial colonization of the "Bolthole" system by a multi-generation colony ship whose initial destination planet was devastated by two planet killer asteroid strikes scant years prior to their arrival; it was rendered uninhabitable, and they were forced to seek another system with less than a hundred years left until their ship ceased being functional due to age.

There did turn out to …

Networking in the Honorverse

I have thought a little about how networking and communication works in the honorverse. While something like the internet is very usable on one planet, the current protocols break down even for intra-system communication, much less for FTL travel.

It's not clear how far computing performance has come in roughly two millenia. Past progress was exponential, but we are already hitting problems. Nonetheless, in the Honorverse you could probably fit a 21st century data center into a pack of cigarettes, both in terms of datastorage and computing. If you really wanted to. Many consumer devices would exchange the computing power they don't need for cheaper manufacturing and longer battery life.

The "internet" landscape of the honorverse hasn't been …

Impact of prolong on society

Recently I thought a lot about the way a human society would change when almost everyone's natural lifespan was doubled or quadrupled within a few generations. It would completely change the way humans plan their life, wouldn't it? You could live several lives in a row, from our perspective, as you likely wouldn't do the same thing for hundreds of years. You could have children who could be a hundred years apart in age. You likely wouldn't remain married to the same person for hundreds of years, (let's face it, most people can't even manage one of our lifetimes together...)

The whole concept of inheritance as we know it would be gone; as Weber mentions once, a monarch like Elizabeth III could rule for hundreds of years, and by the time he o…

House of Steel

House of Steel, the first Honorverse companion, has been released, and I would like to take this opportunity to encourage all fellow Honorverse fans to purchase a copy of this beautiful piece of reference material.

Over time, most of the information will find its way into the Honorverse Wiki in some way, as we try to collect all there is, but that should not defer you from getting House of Steel for yourselves, be it in hardcover or e-book format. This project is a collaborative work of many people at BuNine who put a lot of effort into it, and should be rewarded accordingly.

Making this project a financial success will also ensure the release of future companions on the Havenites, Andermani, and Mesans, and I'm sure we all want to see those m…

Masada colonization

This kinda goes out to people who have an idea about population growth and the likes.

We know that the Masada colony was founded by less than 50,000 people in the 14th Century PD. (HH2 said that I think) Would that be a significant enough population to colonize a planet to a point that you could build a space navy a few hundred years later? Especially considering how anti-tech they were?

I'm asking because I remember an episode of the reimagined BattleStar Galactica series where they did some calculations and realized that even if they found a new planet, their numbers where to small to build up a lasting human population.

What happened 400 years ago?

I'm rereading Echoes of Honor and came across a statement about the Manticore-Haven War being "an interstellar war on a scale the galaxy hadn't seen in at least four hundred years". So what happened 400 years ago that might arguably be comparable to the Manticore-Haven War?

Line for the Crown

David points out many times in several books Mike's position in the line for the Crown.  I have wondered about this line and tried to work out how it would go.  The first 3 are easy to figure due to their direct relationship to Elisbeth, but then there is a hole.

1. Crown Prince Roger

2. Priincess Joanna

3. Duke Michael

4. ?

5. Mike

Would that 4th person be Mike's mother, Lady Caitrin Winton-Henke, and if so How would it effect the constitutional clause of the monarch required to marry a commoner?

Just thought I would throw that out there and see what you thought.

Tuckerization

I only recently realized what an awesome amount of tuckerization (naming characters after real life fans or acquaintances) there is in Weber's books.

The ones I can point out so far are:

  • Michael Ankenbrandt (resistance fighter Michael Ankenbrandt)
  • Tim Bolgeo (Petty Officer Bolgeo and Tennessee Bolgeo)
  • Joe Buckley (various, obviously)
  • David Mattingly (Harrington Armsman Simon Mattingly)
  • Eric Flint (bar owner Eric Flint)
  • Russell Isler (StateSec Captain Isler)
  • Thomas Marrone (MLF propagandist Thomas Marrone)
  • Timothy Zahn (Sidemoran analyst Tim Zahn)

Did you guys spot any others?

RCN Wiki

Hi guys,

as Samanda has already discovered, I have started another wiki. My newest victim is David Drake's RCN series, an open ended science fiction series that may seem somewhat familiar to you if you have read Drake's Honorverse short story "A Grand Tour", which is actually Drake's first draft of what later became the first RCN novel, With the Lightenings. (I happen to know Dotz is a fan ;-) )

The wiki is based on the same concept as the Honorverse wiki, with an in-universe past tense style and an extensive reference system (which Samanda already improved). There's only a few articles so far, since I'm currently reading the series for the first time myself.

Any of you who know the novels, or have become interested now, are of course welcome …

The Movie adaptation

Well, since last autumn, we know that David Weber has found a studio he likes to adapt Honor's adventures into a movie series. Everything is still in its early stages, and it will be years before the first movie comes out.

It's gonna be very interesting to see how this turns out, in my opinion. DW has already adressed the fact that some changes will have to be made. Obviously, the sheer scope of the Honorverse mandates that. On Basilisk Station may be comparibly easy to adapt, they can obmit a lot of minor details and merge some characters, but the more the series progresses, the more complex it gets. In the end, fans of the books will find a lot of stuff left out, and everyone will have one or two favorite things that didn't make it to the …

Races or ethnicities in Honorverse?

Hi everyone,

Just a quick introduction, I started reading Honor Harringtone about 10 years ago as a recommendation from a South African friend. I started with HH1 and loved it so much! At the time it was really difficult to get hold of the HH series books in the UK but I manged to get HH1 and HH3 from Waterstones or somewhere like that. There was also a few on Amazon but they were in the States and too expensive to import at the time for me. I have been a massive Sci-Fi fan all my life so reading HH was like a breath of fresh air, and I wan't such a big reader of Sci-Fi either but loved Sci-Fi films and TV series.


So recently I decided to pick up HH1-2-3-4 from Amazon.co.uk as they have the entire series now availble in uk for reasonable pri…
