- Is the Murugan A Real Thing; will we see it in action in acts 4/5?

- What is Shambhala?
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

- In BP cosmology there are things called the Dawn War, and the Brahman. Are these causal precursors of the Shivans?

What exactly is the terminal protocol? How does it work? Who  or what created it?

Will we get to see TEI era new Vasudan ships?

IIRC the tech room entry on the Hatshepsut said there is a newer class of destroyer out.

 
Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
Will we ever see Feds vs. Shivans? Will the Shivan lines recorded for the UEF pilots ever get used?

If I can successfully model one yes for sure.

Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
Will new ships appear on either side? What would be their role?

Everybody will be getting more ships (except maybe the Vishnans?) Prominent highlights include next-gen Vasudans, the Tev drone bombers, and various late-war UEF wunderwaffen.

- Is the Murugan A Real Thing; will we see it in action in acts 4/5?

- What is Shambhala?

The motive behind question one is in a way the answer to question two: which is to say, Shambhala is an attempt to exploit the GTVA (and the player's) psychological fixation on victory through ship-to-ship combat in order to create a blind spot through which true Ubuntu victory can be achieved.

- In BP cosmology there are things called the Dawn War, and the Brahman. Are these causal precursors of the Shivans?

The Dawn War occurred when the rich early universe became divided between defect-strategy powers (Cixin Liu's 'dark forest aliens', though of course BP got there first...at least in English) and the powers that would become the Brahman: supercooperators who overcame the game-theoretic optimum of 'shoot first speak never' through resilient alliances.

What is this?

A necessary and possibly sufficient component of Shambhala.

What exactly is the terminal protocol? How does it work? Who  or what created it?

The terminal protocol is literally the Brahmans' dying design: the last-possible-aeon failsafe program by which their artificial noosphere was quarantined into diverging dissimilar universes, each isolated in subspace, 'gardened' by the Shivans. Imagine every computer on the Internet disconnected and air-gapped.

Will we ever see Feds vs. Shivans? Will the Shivan lines recorded for the UEF pilots ever get used?

Yes and yes.

What is the Great Darkness?

An emergent and inevitable property of metacognition in a rechnender raum incorporating the full Tegmark III ensemble. At the largest scales of computation, consciousness becomes a fatal pathology.

Is it likely that, at the culmination of the Sol War, both sides will believe that they have won?

 1: How will the heat death of the universe affect the Shivans?



This next ones a bit out there.   :drevil:

 2: Let's say I (out of spite) encrypted "Alpha 1 giving middle finger.png" into the DNA of a highly extremophilic Terran microbe artificially modified to live in the atmosphere of a Y-class brown dwarf; and thus allowing them to survive into heath death longer then any other form of life; would these "Terran lifeforms" survive the Shivans via technicality and be able to mock/insult the Shivans on a personal level via Alpha 1's angry likeness living on in their genetic code?

Or is this quest for galactic bragging rights just a hollow victory gone to far?   :p

Is both sides a fair assessment of the complexities involved or can the non human factions be seen as their own 'sides'?

What is this?
Considering your answer and the text on that site:

Is that a shipyard?
Check out my blog:

Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
Clearly not since it has defined rotation times and a max speed of 25m/s.
[19:31] <MatthTheGeek> you all high up on your mointain looking down at everyone who doesn't beam everything on insane blindfolded

 
Re: The Blue Planet Oracle (full BP2/3 spoilers within!)
What were the Vishnans trying to accomplish during the events of AoA? What are their overall goals?

Did the great darkness destroy the Brahmans?

Plus the shipyard model itself is longer than 2 clicks. I guess this is resized Vexor, or one of Cadius' models.

Upon reading this, I am reminded of The Architect from the Matrix movies.
