I do dispair.... <= Lol

All half of you seem to do is look for spelling errors....

Or suggest corrections. Are you english teachers?

Does it matter?

Just enjoy it, this nit picking is down right rude to the author.

Nice bit of background Laughing

Awesome short story. I like the gritty military types.

Also bares some resemablance to real life.....

Also does this mean we may see Valklear spec ships? ooo :P

Are you really all so blind? Ofcourse slaves couldn't possibly be warriors (oh wait, the revolution was started by a slave smashing the skull of an amarrian with a Khumaak) nono, the only good minmatar warriors are brutal criminals. ....

AND EVEN NOW THEY ARE IN MINMATAR HIGH COMMAND, THE CRIMINALS!!!111

get a grip, this is laughably ridiculous amarrian propaganda, why do you even give it the least attention?

Just FYI, this isn't an IC board it's OOC... and that infodump is 100% canon. All the factions have their dirty laundry. If you chose a faction thinking EVE was good vs. evil, well, I've got bad news for you--everyone is evil in this setting, they just have different flavours.

Nice Chronicle. Made me think back when the US still allowed minors to opt for military service as punishment for misdemeanors they committed. I know a couple guys that the discipline actually turned their lives around and made them men.


I can tell you that this option is still being use. it depends all by the judge or the plea of defence attorney. you may not start in a good job assigment but if you continue in making a career out of it you can accpomlish anything in the military.

Born again hard, just like Gunny liked 'em. Hell, I may even allow them to serve as a spaceman in my beloved Corps.

Both are trained to hell and back, Kameiras are enhanced some what though i think. Kameiras probably have higher moral too, since they don't fear death so much.

Valklears probably have more creativity though and would be less predictable.

Nice bit of info, even though I think this was mentioned at some point or another in a different format. However, it is always good to get a refresher course of things that are in the back of your mind occasionally. Keep up the good work guys, loved the novel Abraxas. :)

What struck me as I read this chronicle is how much like slavery this could be seen to be. "Hey, you guys are criminals. Work for us in this insanely dangerous job, or spend many more years behind bars." Yes, it's a stretch, but especially since Hederian altered the laws so that only criminals could be made slaves in Imperial territory...


Actually, its not a stretch at all. This technique is used all over the USA today.
From smaller offenses, like a DUI, but you can receive a lesser sentence if you subject yourself to the religious zealots at the 10-step programs
Or harder offenses, that will land you in prison... depending on the crime, you may be given an option in the military. Well over 10% of the US military's recruits require waivers for their criminal records.

In fact, our culture encourages the notion that if you're getting a rocky start in life, you should just join the military. Troubled teen? Military! Low school grades? Military! Drugs? Military! No job? Military!

Nice story - the instructor in the artwork looks suspiciously like "Ahnold"...

Very clever idea. However, I assume that the Caldari have the best of soldiers. They are a military state, and all troopers would naturally have the will and discipline to be elite.

I love this concept .... im looking forward to seeing what they give the Caldari and Gallente. As for the comment on Caldari units, the State has a unified training program where every able bodied man, woman, and dear say child can use a weapon(military grade). i would figure there Elite would be something close to a SAS or US Special Forces(yes I know there 2 very different units)

Nice Chronicle, may I ask who did the artwork for this piece? (the one of the military line-up)

Wait what, US and special forces in the same sentence? :P

Mhm, interesting read, penal regiments are more something I expected from the Caldari but it also makes perfect sense within the Minmatar Republic.

Actually, Eve may have already given the Gallente and Caldari elite military units. For the Caldari, read the chronicle "A Life in 3 Acts" since it talks about a genetically engineered soldier. For the Gallente, their elite force is probably the Black Eagles.
