I tossed out so many so as to give a variety sensor pallets that could be placed in ships. In addition to Navigation this I imagine sensor systems being used as much for observation and information gathering.
I imagine these pressurized devices being pretty small, and the explosive part I added just so I could give PCs (sadly I will likely never run a Dynastic Migration game) something to utilize when they improvise. But what is important with the deep neutrino telescopes they have now is the number atoms in the detector. By pressuring the water to a level not realistic with current material engineering you get the same sensitivity in a smaller areaGo to Comment
I thought about doing a list like you say. But I have a vision. Thus, I may recognize that It would would be sensible to put these into one list; particularly if I was gaming the citadel for averages or if somebody wanted to quick reference them. It would be better that way a stand alone post.

But I have a vision. A lame vision, an esoteric vision, but it is mine. I am not saying I don't want advice or critiques cause I do. But I am not looking at the thousand pieces of Sci-fi Minutia, but at what I might duck board across it. I forsee a post, a post not yet even drafted, in which there is hypertext under ever stone. In my vision the discrete will meet the expansive 100 words at a time and without stubs.
Even "incomplete" I like the little story that is threaded through the write up.

What is really great about this, and what gives it so much potential in my wee mind is that it is both extremely general (a planetary raid is the go to Battletech event) and extremely specific with bits of world building and characterization. Thanks for writing this up.
While this may not be as polished (or dare I say self-important) as some other subs. It has heart! Or truth! Or perhaps it has the type of self aware sincerity you find in high school year books. At the end the day we couldn't honestly say the year book staff was doing it for the school, cause us kids in gen-pop could care less. It was all about the yearbook, and the Yearbook (putting all the pictures together, making pages for each group) was a justification in and of itself.
And though the year book was small in a scope, short on originality and put together by wildly over confident amateurs I would wager it held more personal weught for its publishers than the last issue of playboy or the new yorker did their own. It had sincerity.
So there are few things as tender or as sincere as well done year book. So I salute this post.....*sniff*
Because this is about gaming, and damn it I gamed.

Because the way Aramax puts it is how it was man, that is really how it was.
