[NC] Kafari Karismi
« on: July 19, 2009, 05:55:52 pm »

The NC and OG.

To any other species, the technology of the Kafasi Karismi would seem bizarre, lopsided or puzzling; this is their most unique feature. According to the Galactic Senate’s Civilization Development Index (CGI), the Karismi lack 7 of 10 key technologies considered necessary for the advance from a planetary culture to an interplanetary civilization, yet they have several highly populated colonies, a well developed home system, and a large array of listening posts and cartographic observatories scattered throughout the cluster. The most ubiquitous piece of missing technology is the progression past radio-signal communication technology into the fields of quantum communication or subspace transmission. Instead, the Karismi communicate only with a very narrow band of electromagnetic frequencies that are unable to surpass the speed of light.

Karismi vessels, on the other hand, are capable of moving from one destination to another at speeds greater than that of light. Sustainable fusion technology was discovered relatively early in the home world’s postindustrial era, and as such led to the development of several energy-point driven ballistic weapons, which were accelerated by the concentration of energy at a single point in the creation of a gravity differential. This process inadvertently warped space-time around the projectile, a process later harnessed to direct vessels between fixed-point locations throughout the nearby universe.

This combination of awkward technological advancements is ripe for diplomatic misunderstandings, for the primitive Karismi methods of communication render them completely unaware of alien life right next door. Soon, first contact will inadvertently be made by this curious species, or forced upon them by a more concerned elder. It is then that the people of Kafasi and their descendants will look on the other species of the galaxy and say “My, what strange and backwards technologies these creatures have.”

Probably not gonna update this unless asked to. Mainly an excuse to join in an RP where I would further flesh them out, if I so desired.

Did the Karismi ever have reusable spacecraft, space elevators, and spaceflight capabilities? I consider those essential for a race to become spacefaring.

Yes.

Also, very nice work Brandon! Did you make that galaxy picture yourself?  :o
The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

Can you showcase this race's space vehicles from past to present?

No, I just found a real picture of a galaxy and a nearby cluster that are the best approximation of the OG and NC.

Just another case of pie attempting to know what he's talking about.

How did you make the planet like that? It almost looks like a Civ4 map.

Seriously, Raz, it doesn't matter. I know what I'm talking about, as a spacefaring race has HAD to have some kind of space vehicles at some point before the present.

EDIT: A spacefaring race also can have been discovered in the past.

You're still trying to know what you're talking about, pie.  :-\ Besides, its his choice, and it's a very interesting and unique choice thus far. And he said they lack 7 of 10 technologies. Not ships. Pay more attention, pie-san.
