  1. First, I suspect that those Hawaiian, uhm, er, “gentlemen?” Are in for a rather rude surprise…

    And second, I’m pretty sure that those ground troops are in for a VERY nasty surprise, as their EMP weapon turns out to be far less than useless…
    I mean, only a couple of years have passed since the Third World War, and I’m pretty sure that any electronics used by the Navy, Army and Marines would be pretty much EMP proof…
    Although, I’m not sure if anybody’s tested the Gravity Drives against EMP…
    I kind of suspect that it won’t really matter as there’s probably a major EM field involved in the gravity generation side…
    Can we say feedback to the EMP gun? I thought we could!

    If I’m right, I would want to be those troops as the Capacitor and and power source for that gun are likely to go BOOM!

  2. That should be, “I would NOT want to be those troops”… I don’t like pain, and this, both electrocution and explosion, would be a really nasty way to die…

  3. “NoIWon’t Airport’ – The Gentle Wolf

    ‘We Made it’ (planet) – Larry Niven

    ‘We’re Nowhere’ (Planet) – in one of my stories…

  4. Niven had a lot of fun naming his Near Space planets, major cities (Crashland City) and geographic features (Mount Lookitthat).

    My guess is that before the jet was returned from impound, items roughly equaling the “fines and other costs” in value were removed, inobviously. Auxiliary fuel tanks? Long-range communication? We’ll see.

    They think the Wildcat is dangerous above them? I’m reminded of Rorschach’s line: I’m not in here with you — you’re in here with ME!
