I'm not sure about no WWII. If humans find out how to use the Heat-Ray, they could decimate everyone who opposes them. Nice idea though. It's a good version for an alternate timeline!


The Tempest is an advanced assault vehicle, which carries two heavy Heat-Rays and a Canister Launcher.

Well, the students in MY fanfic (which I poster on both the forum AND the site) will probably NEVER recover from the horrors they went through (read the story to find out what happened). They will try and keep their child(ren) save from that. Good parents should spend time with their children to raise them, and not doing everything in such a hurry. I've got a standard time schedule to eat dinner for example. That is at 5.30 Dutch time (5.00 if my father has to work overtime).

Its been discussed in a few threads. I think Backward Intelects in Pendragon has debates about it. And there is the one about a dream that runs into discussions about it.

But remember in the book the Martians only invade England, and that's pretty much comtained around London.
Even so there would be a global depression afterwards.

If its OK, Id rather continue talking here instead of resurrecting more threads.....
Well it wouldnt be such a world thing then if not englands development, if anything they might not get in the war but sooner or later figure out the technology and become more advance!

Basic Inter-War premise for my fic:

Immediatley after WotW, as stated in the book, the other nation of the world rush to help poor little England recover from this horrible tragety. They go through a stage of rapid rebuilding, much like that experienced by other occupied conutries in postwar times. (Ie France & Belgium after WWI) But, as soon as England can stand on its own feet again, they boot out all the aid workers and the Government covertly seizes all remaining Martians/Martian technology. Falling right back into their old imperial habbits, They franticly rush to descipher the secrets of Mars before the other nations catch on and attempt a pre-emptive strike. International relations plunge downhill and a tight web of alliances form and the powers of Europe start to mass produce the instruments of War (Sound familiar?)

The tension continues to build, until a distinctive Green flash is seen on the surface of Mars...

My "(Sound Familiar)" was supposed to refer to the global situation before WWI. Everyone's allied with someone, fighting over territories, building huge standing armies, ready to do anything for their homelands...

That sort of thing.

Yes I know what you meant. I was messing around. I gues you never heard of Jamie and the Magic Tourch?

I think what could happen. Is the possibilty that the shock and fear of the knowledge of aliens that are in advance of Earth, with designs to take our planet, would unify the world.

We couldn't afford to go to war with each other, because that would weaken us.

If you read the award winning graphic novel, The Watchmen By Alan Moore, an alien invasion is faked to avert a nuclear war between Russia and America.

Nope, Never heard of it.

Yes, but that knowledge is accompanied by the fact that the Earth itself is Toxic to them. People who see the Martians whiped out in their first attmept, would go on to assume that they would just give up on Earth, or that even if they did come back, nature would give them annother whippping.

With a feeling of security in place there's nothing to keep us from just sliping right back into our old habbits, especialy with those sweet delicious Heat Rays, sitting right there waiting to be used. Mmm... Heat Ray... =P~

Acoording to the Star Trek Universe, in the 29 Century, Starships of the Federation (with Earth as the main founder) are equipped with Transphasic Torpedoes. These torpedoes are extremily powerful; one of those is enough to annihilate a single Borg Cube!!!

Well, since the Federation also possesses TIMESHIPS in the 29th Century, they can use one to go back to that period you guys are talking about, giving the present Humans the technology to withstand any future Martian invasions.

I posted in another thread a while back, that after the war with the Martians England would be so weak that other countrys around the world would invade to get their hands on all this lovely new technology, they would descend like vultures [-(
