| Wraith Five chapter 6 . 11/19/2011
i have to say...seeing an MS with hybrid tech in action should be VERY interesting...though i have to say, i think the star wars-type shields (since i'm guessing they're omni-directional, like starfighter shields), when combined with a pilot like...say kira or athrun, will be a *little* bit over-powered...XD
in any event, i can't wait to see how the next chapter turns out! (i'd be willing to bet that the dragoon system will tear the imperials to shreds though! (LITERALLY XDDDD))
(i mentioned this in another MSG:S/SW crossover fic review, but i think throwing in some battlemech/battletech type gear on the imperial side (b/c it would sort of look like crossing an AT-ST with a mobile suit) would be interesting as an imperial attempt to reverse-engineer a mobile suit.)
Anyways, can't wait for the next chapter!

Why so strong, SEED? Later mechas are powered by nuclear fusion, so how?

Your traces of the several Gundam series in this remain amazing and well thought out.
(I especially liked the five advanced models Aeolia and Ahaheim put out. SEED and Wing are well served by that reference.)
If the Sol Council accepts Jupiter's representatives while making their deal of necessities in trade for Jupiter's abundant hydrogen, they'll gain a lot more of that legitimacy that Aeolia noted a lack of. I don't honestly know if Mars has significant iron to mine for their own contribution, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did, particularly from Olympus Mons.
Overall, the plotline is sensible, fairly true to form on the parts of the various players, and moving along well.

Great chapter! Got the tech is one thing. Understanding them all is another. Sol can mimic and create star fighter, but I agree that to fully make something on their own need more time. And with the N-Jammer use in reactor, will we got some GN-Drive from Aeolin soon ?
The idea of using the attack to draw Vader's attention away is tricky. On one hand, they must launch that rescue mission. On the other, it will show their new card and maybe got Vader's attention. I cant wait to see the next chapter

Awesome chapter man! Very plausible, now, can you get Starkiller involved, and I may finally be content.

Nice chapter. Oh boy...Yzak and Dearka can't be happy about that...wonder who gets the other 3 machines though...the only other pilots I can think of are Shinn, Mu, Kira, Athrun, and Luna, and of those only Luna really needs a new one. Looking forward to the next update (and the Unknown Regions expansion (if you want to use any planets I come up with just ask). And its nice to know my glut of chapters lately helped you with this.

AWESOME! LOVE THE NEW SUITS!

I am glad that you are showing the difference between understanding tech and reproducing tech. That said Sol could manufacture a number of spare parts for fighters and other things without understanding them either. I am glad you included a number of civilian products with all the military gear. Gives a more balanced look at the tech.
I agree that cutting travel time around Sol system will have a big impact on their political structure.
I liked the idea about using n-jammer tech as a shield on the solar reactors.
Speaking of n-jammers, since the empire doesn't have any such tech is there any chance of seeing the deployment of nuclear weapons against Imperial targets such as military production centers or shipyards that are away from civilian areas.
I like the idea of using the rescue mission to draw Vader away from the Death Star security. Nice use of a canon character with Winter as well.
Was going to ask about the communication issue between Earth and Alliance when you answered in the authors notes at the end. A relay system of comm sats does make sense.
More soon please.

A very, very good chapter. Everything is moving along well and at a good pace. I like the new suits though I think it too much to give the Solar mirage colloid. Also I don't think they would count as being operated by Earth Alliance.
About Mars and Jupiter just lay it out to them straight. "We have a better chance to survive if we can put aside our superficial difference and work together to face the Empire." After all the Empire can just go for Mars or Jupiter and steal their MS tech.
I ask for more POV on the Earth representatives. Maybe have the "Mad Dog" test out the Rebels Dagger.

Well, looks like the Empire is going to get a second glimpse at Earth's mobile suit technology. And Biggs is the Alliance's first official mobile suit pilot? I can imagine what will happen when Luke takes the controls of one.

I say Nobal EA is a great idea,it,s the first stand up Fight between EA,s and,s Zaft,s Mobile suits,Without the Cyclops system Archangel will stay loyal to EA and with the Alliance having Mobile suits earlier Zala may not get his Weapon wokring in time.

This is an awesome story, but when will you introduce the Jedi and the Sith? Good vs Evil on a literal scale would be fun to watch as Earth tries to be on the side of good, by getting rid of the shades of evil.

I like to known how the Rebels will use the Mobile suits,I think they will be limited to Fights of 4 Ms for a time,3 normal lod and 1 heavy weapon lod.
What Starwars ships do you think Make Good Ms carriers?
| Maxrange chapter 5 . 11/7/2011
Empire have big number of Industral centers and can reverse engineer very fast,they just need to catch only on Mobile suit intact.
I Hope you go with Nobel Earth Alliance,With the extra time wokring on Mobile suits,I say the Strike Daggers will be more like the 105,s one then the canon like.

Nice, and sounds very plausible. Hope to hear more in the future.
