Petroglyphs and archeological findings such as settlements dating from about 10,000 BC can be found in Lapland and Finnmark, although these have not been demonstrated to be related to the Sámi people. These hunters and gatherers of the late Paleolithic and early Mesolithic were named Komsa by the researchers. Finns living in Finnish Lapland generally call themselves lappilainen, whereas the similar word for the Sámi people is lappalainen.

Doing this will also increase the delivery speed of the asset as the browser does not need to perform an additional DNS lookup. Hotlinking someone’s website assets can vastly increase their hosting costs. This article will highlight ways you can avoid hotlinking another website’s assets if you are a web user and how to protect against hotlinking if you are a website owner. It might be wrong to make a copy of the original image file for use on a different web page, without being careful to get proper permission.

Their agility and maneuverability means they can move to redeploy and protect other ships better than larger, slower moving vessels. You’d likely see a strength-in-numbers strategy with them. Frigates, unlike corvettes, would more commonly see direct battle and would probably not be found with stealth drives in most settings; they are simply getting too large by that point. So, from here on out I’ll be explaining the various classes of ships, their histories, and how I would personally define what the role a spaceship of that kind would take.

  • If you wanted your Navy to compete, you needed to build battleships, which were crushingly expensive burdens.
  • Instead of say, five defending gunboats of 100 meters to tackle a raider, you’d need six or seven since several would be disabled by long range fire before coming to grips.
  • Weyerhaeuser operated a fleet of six Liberty Ships carrying lumber, newsprint, and general cargo for years after the end of the war.
  • But, for a reasonably sized ship, this should not be a tremendous problem, especially when nuclear propulsion techniques are used, many of which have already been designed and proven feasible in the real world.

Reflector was almost sent hurdling to the farthest side of the galaxy by the Trigger, but a blast from Megatron’s fusion cannon disabled the portal. Then the Autobots showed up, and the two factions began their battle aboard the space station. The Decepticons constructed a new weapon to pursue their energy-plundering campaign on Earth, the Omega Wave Cannon.

In this way, a fleet could embark from planetary orbit as a single system, separating into sortie elements near the end of the trip. Presuming that a fleet of the toroidal battle craft sets out on an interplanetary mission, the fleet might start out as a group of parasite ships attached to a mother ship. It’s anybody’s guess how the mother ship will be laid out, so let’s make a guess for the critics to lambaste. The battle craft doesn’t seem very large but it could easily gross over 5,000 tons, fully fueled. If combat accelerations are to reach 5 g’s with full tanks, the engines must produce far more thrust than anything available today.
