Plankton Info Diarrhea, Part Two

More plankton:

Would it not be an interesting to think about, in the Steam Aeon, changing either how the airplane was created, or just vastly overpowering the initial airplane “created” by the Wrights? Just trying to toy with milestones from each of the Aeons as they stand now.

Also, was thinking, if we embrace Tesla as the post-industrial electricity god, would we really follow the same path following that? What I mean, is, would we even get to transistors in the “Something” Aeon, or would we have something better?

Just freebasing here.

    Somewhere else, Caleb made comment of a fly-inspired soldier (which was one concept I had for Stark’s SS). Well, he and I came up with a proper use for them. A creation by the Wrights, and loaned to the Air Force (as a special SEALs like unit of the AF which doesn’t really exist).

    So, what might these suits do? Fly or hover. Limited flight either way. They will also have adhesive abilities for comprehensive scaling. I’m also thinking they’ve got a network running throughout the armor in order to administer nastiness quickly to a victim (like maybe through an injection). What kind of nastiness? I don’t know, maybe primitive biological weaponry (or mustard gas as a start).
    They would also have a helmet/mask full of scopes (much like a fly has many eyes) that allows them to see at many different spectral levels (xray, heat, night, frequencies).

    Also, in a lot of mythology flies are thought of as the onset of death. So, these guys would be veritable tanks w/ armament coming out their backsides.So, whereas the Krake are suited for spying/espionage – the subtle stuff – the Flies would be brutes.

    Also, I need a cooler name for them than “the Flies.” I’ll be working on that.

    possible name, although, I don’t think of the Wrights, or the Air Force bright enough to call the unit “The 4th Plague.”

    What if — what. if. — their objective is to adhere to enemy aircraft and apply said nastiness directly to the mechanics and pilots? They use their acid vomit to tear through hulls, then pump in tear gas and fly away.

    And, I’ll second “The Fourth Plague” as their name, even before you first it officially.
