more updates


there's a bunch of pages where i'd added snapshots that are quotes from existing stories
if that counts as updated articles i could list those out for a round of updates.

traveler's notes: Moltenceti habitat
Since there are quite a few other articles that are finished or very nearly so, hopefully I'll include them in another update very soon.
A question about the image for the data only ship on the colony ships article, what is causing the space-time distortion? I recall the original caption for this picture way back in the day that said the ship was using a pitch drive but since that's gone would it be a halo drive?
Yes; this certainly looks like a halo drive to me.

Then shouldn't the distortion be in front of the ship and not a ring around the middle?
The halo pulls the mass of the ship forward, so I'd guess the halo would need to be forward of the centre of gravity. If that ship has more mass behind the halo than in front it should work.
