I recently started on the Codominium books, and I was curious if any of that could be in grated into COADE. For the most part, the story follows real world physics, and at the moment I'm not even terribly concerned with the FTL aspect of the Alderson drive, I'm more inin rated in how the game would play with the Field. I think the tactical and gameplay application of it would be interesting to say the least. From my understanding of it, the Field functions less like the directional deflector shield like Star Wars and Star Trek, but as spheres which absorb energy which must then be dissipated as heat. A captain would them be forced to, at a certain point, either shut down the field or risk cooking his crew and overloading his electronics.
