Yeh. And the sheet is extremely long, so you may just want to dedicate 30 minutes or so of filling it up per day. And, store the sheet as a Notepad file for when you're done, you can open Notepad, then open your sheet file, then just copy it into a post.

Raptainium requires ONE SEPTILLION KILOGRAMS OF PRESSURE?!? That has got to be one of the stupidest pieces of pseudoscientific garbage I've ever heard! Listen: To get that much pressure you would need the entire weight of the planet Earth bearing down on it! Now stop this mindless drivel and read a book! Besides, why the hell would you need iodine gas and liquid silicon for fuel in fusion reactors? Actually, I am definitely sure that you don't even know what a fusion reactor is. To put it in simple terms that you'll understand, nuclear fusion is when you fuse two atoms together, producing tremendous amounts of energy. It's what drives all the stars in the universe, but here's what you got wrong: Silicon and iodine gas is way too heavy to use practically. Hydrogen is the lightest element, and it's used for fuel by stars and in nuclear fusion.

Oh, and can you possibly come up with a more original name than "Volcana?" Seriously, I've heard George W. Bush come up with more intelligent-sounding names. And what does "Tribefin Blazebones" mean, anyway? All it does is make your creature sound stupid.

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg of pressure? That is much more than what it takes to create diamonds, and they are nigh unbreakable, and tiny and dense due to the amount of force needed to form them. From that amount of force, this "Raptainium" would exist in such small amounts you would need to mine an unthinkable amount of it to have enough to do anything with it. In short,

You fail. Miserably.

That would be almost (or much more than) enough to compress any material into an all-consuming singularity (or "black hole" [In this case, "black dot"])!

Light weight my... something...

Something that dense would weigh as much as a star per... I'll use ounce for simplicity.

1. Raptainium already has the entire force of the planet bearing down on it. It's found in the planet's inner core. And yes, to do anything with it,you need a scientifically impossible ammount of the stuff.
2. Tribefin Blozebones was the original name. if you READ THE FIRST LINE, I have changed it to Raptorian Empire.
3. Iodine and Silicon are used for a different fuel source. I know Fusion Engines run off of some form of Hydrogen and produce Helium, just like every star in the univerese, fanfic or otherwise. And also that nuclear fusion is currently impossible on Earth, even with the so-called "fusion bomb" or "hydrogen bomb." I know a lot more than you give me credit for.

4. I couldn't think of a name for the planet.
4.1. Oh yeah, "Earth" is really original... Gaia = Earth. Geo = Earth. The word for EARTH has been around since before they knew the world was round. Oh, Earth is really original.

Oh yeah, before I forget, Faster Than Light travel (FTL) is not scientifically possible, since the immense ammount of energy required would take more than any power source known to sentient life. And there is absolutely no way to ever stop IF you could achieve FTL. Too much MOMMENTUM.

and...

Did you not read the ARTIFICIALY LIQUIFIED part of the Imports?!?

Hmm, what do we know about LIQUID FUELS?

And I know they're too heavy and too dense. Why do you think they're on a gas giant, which is just a ball of dense gasses?

God, if you pay attention to science so much, then why do you do anything in the fanfic universe at all? Nearly everything here breaks the laws of modern science.

Law of Conversion of Energy and Matter. I suggest you study that. It's 6th grade science. If matter/energy cannot be created or destroyed outside of a nuclear reaction or a black hole/white hole, then how can you "create" enough energy to power FTL?

Yes White Holes are real. It is believe the Big Bang was really a white hole. It explains why the universe is perpetually expanding: white holes eject matter. Just as Black Holes eject odd flares of energy of some kind. And a wormhole? Requires Negative Energy, which is the opposite of gravity. Don't forget that to keep a wormhole open while inside it is not possible. So good day to you sir.

Mam is right. End of story.

EDIT: What if FTL used the dark matter/energy from the space, say, a few kilometers from it to power it? After all, E=MC2. That means that energy can be made into matter, and matter can be made into energy!

Everyone quit overreacting!

EDIT: and I think we can all agree that ships move at the speed of plot, correct?

Why don't you listen to an actual scientist now, instead of running around thinking that you know everything?.
1. Humans actually can produce nuclear fusion artificially, though it of course does not occur naturally. We have not yet been able to control it completely.
2. There are no such things as the "laws of modern science," only the laws of physics. Thanks to me and my comrades, most things here do not break the laws of physics, though many technologies here are far beyond current human reach.
3. Every scientist knows that matter and energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but what every scientist also knows is that matter and energy can be converted into each other. Energy can also be turned into other types of energy, and this is the basic principle behind solar panels, which convert light into electrical energy and do, in fact, exist. And matter and energy are NEVER created or destroyed, not even in a nuclear reaction(which converts) or a black hole(which does who-knows-what.)
4. White holes are a hypothesis, meaning that there is no evidence backing it up. We have never found a white hole, and they have alteady been proven false.
5. Wormholes are also a hypothesis. We have never discovered a wormhole, and while we have a basic idea of how they might work we have no idea of how to create one or keep it open, so your claims that it is impossible to keep a wormhole open and that a wormhole requires negative energy have no evidence backing them up, because we have never found or created a wormhole.
6. Actual FTL travel is truly impossible, although we can achieve the same results using a warp drive or hyperdrive.
7. In the Gamingsteve galaxy we assume that such technologies as wormhole generators are possible and have been discovered. We also assume that the spacefaring creatures here have discovered methods of storing the amount of energy needed to power a hyperdrive(wormholes) or a warp drive(space-bending). We do not yet know how such things are possible, but given human ingenuity we assume once more that we humans will some day discover such technologies as well.
8. I think that raptainium is both scientifically impossible and an example of godmodding, so you should delete it from the Raptorians' backstory.

Now then, I have attempted to be as polite as possible in calmly explaining to you why many of your points listed were not scientifically valid. However, I have also listened to your other points, and understand now why some of my points were not valid. I was, I admit, vastly overreacting in my previous post. So please, let us put down our verbal weapons and extend the hand of friendship, so we can cooperate together to make this forum a better place through constructive criticism rather than shouting. What do you say? :) Oh, and if you want to know more about hyperdrives and warp drives, just ask.

I agree with UFO.  We were a little harsh back there.
