Does anybody know of any forums about science and tactics in sci-fi in general? I've got a few questions and ideas that aren't really specific (probably most are not even applicable), to AVT. I'm basically looking for two things:
1) Somewhere where I could find out how realistic an idea is (would concept A violate physical law X, would concept B be possible, but require a material with property Y, which is probably impossible, etc.)

2) Somewhere where I can discuss the implications of an idea whether it is realistic or not (such as, with weapons A and B, and defense C, tactical dilemmas X, Y, and Z will appear, or drive A combined with communication technology B will create economic effect X, and strategic effect Y, along with tactical effect Z).

Don't walk, run!, to the Yahoogroups mailing list: SFConsim:

What James said - much of AV:T was hammered out in SFCONSIM-L.

Any actual forums? I might go for sfconsim if nobody can think of any, but I'm a bit more familiar and comfortable with forums than mailing lists...

It being a Yahoo Group, you can interface with it through a web form, which is how I interact with it.

I signed up over the weekend. 3 or 4 days later my membership is still awaiting approval and I haven't heard anything...

Chris Weuve sometimes gets busy - he teaches at the Naval War College.

I see... Well anyways, I am in now, so I guess he is momentarily no longer busy...

Well, in fairness, his playpen is bigger -- there's more ocean than there is land. :cry: And then the light blue and the dark blue get into volume comparisons.... :wink:

It's funny that in every military organization, the army refer to itself as green, aren't there any militaries that refer to thier army as brown? :roll:

We used to say in the Armored corps that the Air Force is the foreign millitary most friendly to us.

Light blue is a whole lot more challenging than dark blue, but dark blue is MUCH bigger - both in area and in volume.

Most of your threats since the recent demise of the USSR are light blue, though China may eventually try to change that. (Yes, there is some historical basis for the prevalence of the dastardly XCCN)*

*Of course they're dastardly - so says the Olympian Advocate. ;-)

Heh. I'd been assuming light blue meant Air Force, not littoral ops. All a matter of perspectives. :)
