Heh, yep, Kinslayer did sum it up nicely.

'Rings' has a nice ring :) Go to Comment

She is quite well done, though need to echo Manfred on her jump in roles. Go to Comment

4.0/5

It has everything it needs to, and would be ideal for an ongoing naval campaign.

The only slight issue I have with her has already been voiced by manfred.

Other than that I like this sub.

P.s. Some interesting reading: By The Mast Devided - David Donachie Go to Comment

Why do I have images of how this would fit right into a Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy story. Very Douglas Adams.

He most certainly can. He's using evolutions in the sense of biological modifications: they're several evolutionary steps beyond dolphins. Go to Comment

Not terribly. Usually if provoked, they'll run off, and they're not very territorial either. But if one were to rile an aerophin up enough, it could fight back and cause some nasty bites. Go to Comment

I just glanced over this comment and read the last line as "dolphin meat." Made me think what might happen if you ate a lot of aerophin. Would the consumed pantarbe build up in one's system, perhaps even to the point where they too can fly or at least float? Go to Comment

I am not voting here, just an edit

"They are several evolutions beyond dolphins"

You can't say "evolutions" it implies a unit, and I don't think it is a word. Try saying derived. The use of the word "beyond" works if you have a defined starting point, an intermediate and a end point. Go to Comment

I knew what he meant, and that is exactly why I think he can't use the term "evolutions". My understanding is that evolution is on going process, and that during this process organisims derive novel traits that will eventually seperate them for their genetic ancestor or even their contemparies. You can't say a tree is several growths taller than another tree. Go to Comment

axlerowes's comment on 2009-04-13 12:29 PM
I suppose you could say evolutions if you are talking about several discrete paths. For example "Anaylsis of the gene pool of spotted moths, nonmigratory pigeons, and the common mouse species Mus musculus indicate that both moths and pigeons have been under intense selective pressure since at least 1700. The Mouse population however has maintained a degree of diversity predicted by our null hypothesis. The evolutions of the moth and pigeon population....."

Here you can use plural because you are discussing two evolutions, the evolution of the moth and the evolution of the pigeon. Above he is wants to state that his space dolphin shares a common ancestor with the earth dolphin. He a discussing a macro evolution relationship, the use of the terms "evolutions" and "beyond" should not be applied.
If the creature evolved from a dolphin population or reached a dolphin like state via convergent evolution then you are simply discussing the evolution of that population. They did not go through multiple evolutions. Beyond is unfortunate because it suggest a linear relationship, when really it is a branching relationship between related species. Beyond isn't wrong, I just think it should be used carefully.

Writers of speculative fiction deeply effect the general publics understanding of science. When discussing a topic such evolution is it not important that one deals carefully with academic question and considerations? Go to Comment

Numerous uses of the word Evolutions can be found on the web, though pointedly, no dictionary that I can find defines it separately from evolution.

However, since evolution can be used as a noun:

http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/evolutions
...
2 a change in the genetic composition of a population of organisms over time.

More then one such change could be considered Evolutions, though obviously this is up for debate. Go to Comment

Maybe it's the Dr Who fan in me, but I find the notion of aerial dolphins rather neat.
