Golden Age
& how to get to Mars in the process

I lead the world in aerospace.

Like the dinosaur, you guys have had your time. The future is my time.

And I am going to prove it, by winning the Race to Mars.

I have some very urgent and important breaking news. I am launching the Race to Mars.

Well, then let us begin...

I begin by demonstrating absolute dominance in area after area, so that you guys can take me seriously. You see I am not just a genius, not just a prodigy, but a genuine freak of nature. Nothing like me has ever been seen before.

You don't believe me? Well then let us jump straight into the first area where I will demonstrate absolute dominance.

We begin with Sex & Relationships, and a discussion on Enlightenment.

On 21st December 2012 I achieved Ascension, the next stage in Enlightenment. I am the first in history to achieve it, which gives me the highest level of Enlightenment ever achieved in history. Immortals from all over the world converged in Ireland in 2013 in anticipation of the most significant event in history. The launching of the Greatest Golden Age in history and the triggering of the Ascension of humanity. The came for the Gathering.

You see we are already more than seven years into Golden Age. It's just that most people don't know it yet. The preparation has been going on behind the scenes for years.

It has been a long wait to launch Golden Age publicly.

Now, finally, it is time.

We launch Golden Age with a number of of the Great Projects.

This one is Mars.

Next up is physics.


On 22nd March 2015 I solved the foundation theory for Warp Drive, and for the Warp Core that powers it. I derived them both from First Principles, as they fell naturally from a Grand Unified Theory that I have been working on in physics for thirty years. My designs were verified by a number of non-terrestrial civilisations. My solving Warp Drive unlocks the conditions for First Contact.

It is me who unlocks First Contact.

It is a key milestone in launching the Greatest Golden Age in history.

I've been trying to launch Golden Age for seven years now, but the Borg keep blocking it.

The Borg are the baddies. They are trying to block Golden Age. The other guys that I have been in contact with for First Contact, they also war with the Borg. With them we form the Federation.

Humanity is are war. That war has raged for years. It is just that most people are not aware of it. That war is soon going to spill out into the open however.

We are about to launch the Greatest Golden Age in history.

But we have to fight to get it.

First Contact

Aerospace: Atmospheric Flight

I hacked the most advanced encryptions of the Borg Empire. They are designed to resist the most powerful Borg supercomputers. Designed to be impossible to hack. Absolutely impossible. But I did it. This more than any other factor is how I was able to defeat them.

This leads us now into mathematics.

COVID-19 was orchestrated by the Borg.

An early strike.

That virus should have been far more deadly. Actually, nothing should have survived it. We were able to partially neutralise it in the Resistance with the help of non-terrestrial technology.

As for me, I am an X-Man.

I am completely immune to COVID-19.

Part of my job is to get people ready.

Ready for what is coming.

Clouseau v Cato – Round 4


My mission is to design, build and fly this ship from Ireland to land safely on Mars, before the end of this decade. I can have no help in the design or build, and my mission is a solo mission. I can have help with training, but not with any design or building.

I will land the entire ship on the ground on Mars, at which stage the second phase of my mission kicks in. I am to survive on Mars for a period of no less than seven years in complete isolation, without any additional supplies brought in.

For this mission I am not allowed to use any hypercompression of reengineered materials such as I wrote about in my section How to Make Tritanium. I cannot bring any Federation technology, nor receive any help from the Federation in terms of landing site and so forth. They can however intervene in the event of a catastrophic problem such as me encountering a meteorite en route to Mars. Apart from a catastrophic scenario however, they do not intervene. I will bring over some non-terrestrial languages on video file to work with, but that is separate.

The engines I use will be my Hydro Impulse Drive engines, with a limitation for the engine temperature not to exceed about 1200 degrees Celsius. I take that limitation to force a similar limitation in the Treaty on those we go up against. These are not the most powerful engines that I can build, but they are the simplest and the safest. I can make them about 8 times more efficient than existing convention rockets.

Why do I agree to building such a large ship under such conditions? One reason is because it gives us huge benefit in the Treaty. Another reason is because in doing so it unlocks the Battlestars for our encounter with the first of the fleets in 2046. You see this colony ship that I go to Mars in is the exact same hull design as out first Battlestars in space. They will be more armoured and the interior will be completely different as they are military ships, but the hull size, shape and design is the same.

"But Gráinne, surely the design of the Battlestars will have evolved over these next twenty-six years? Can you really say that this is the design that we will be using in twenty-six years time?"

Lt. Barclay is the computer

"Yes, Éibhleann, I can. A design anyway, although there will be others. You see I had access to the Borg supercomputers via the neural interface in my head when I designed these ships. The specifications are perfect, and run though simulations on Borg computers which are far more powerful than anything we have on this planet. As of about three pm Irish time on 25th June 2020 as I write, I have now lost that neural interface to those computers as per Treaty. It is all about the next stage of implementation of the Treaty. We will design other ships of course, but I know that the design on those particular Battlestars is perfect. This is why I want them to be the mainstay of our battle-fleets."

"This is part of disconnecting you from the Borg collective, Gráinne?"

"Yes, Éibhleann. I still have about 80 pounds to lose and my hair follicles are somewhat challenged, but I am making progress in my disconnection from the Borg collective."


Seven of Nine after De-assimilation

Those first Battlestars will each take four Vipers, with each Viper limited to 7.6 m in length. They don't have to be that length. They could be longer. But that is the optimum that I am getting as per the computer simulations I have run, and I want to keep the Vipers quite compact to optimise our Battlestars. Those Vipers will use Hydro Hypercompression engines and an irontanium hull. That is the maximum that we can go while still enjoying the full benefit in the Treaty. Only two Vipers would be flown at a time however. They would be remote controlled by the pilots from the Battlestar. If a Viper is blown up in combat, the pilot can then launch his second Viper, which is also remote controlled. Two of these Vipers are located in each launch tube in each of the two forward wing sections.

The crew of each Battlestar is four. A captain, a tactical officer and two pilots, who in Battle conditions remotely fly their Vipers.

BSG: Viper Tribute

The Battlestars, Vipers and remote control to the Vipers use no more than 25 MHz 286 processors. If we go with this level of processor we are guaranteed by Treaty that they cannot be hacked remotely. That is guaranteed by Treaty. To protect against hacking in the event of a ship being boarded I use the Fractal Encryption Algorithm that I have developed. We also get benefits in weapons and other systems if we keep the computers at this level. In addition we are protected by Treaty from being killed in combat if we restrict our computers to no higher than a 286 processor. In the event of one of our ships being destroyed then we are Stargated back to our base, be that Earth, Mars or wherever we have chosen. That is agreed and enforced by Treaty. If our ship is boarded then just before being killed or captured we are also Stargated back to our chosen base. Only if our last base falls, only then do we lose that protection. Only then can they annihilate us.

We start to lose those benefits once we go above the 286 processor, and the higher we go in processor the less projection we have . That is why not only my ships but the Internet systems that I develop as well as the computers for our bases, our Command Centres and so forth, none of these use any processors more advanced than a 286.

Battlestar Galactica – Introductory Scene

The only exceptions are for processors that we use for writing documents, including documents with video links such as my documents, and for working on film. I will write about that later. There are no other exceptions that are completely protected by Treaty. If we go above this level of processor then we have to provide additional protection ourselves.

For example we could use a higher level processor to remotely control our Vipers, in which case we then rely on encryption, such as my Fractal Encryption Algorithm, to protect the data flow. We have that option but I would be reluctant to use it. The only way to be absolutely certain that the Borg cannot hack us is by Treaty, which means the 286.

We need no less than two hundred of these Battlestars plus an addition two hundred support vessels to meet the first of the fleets in 2046. That is not including about 120 artillery ships - what I call my Panzer ships, using the shell designs that I write about in my Ballistics section, plus space stations and orbital defences. That is the maximum fleet size that we are allowed by Treaty.

Taking size into account we would be outnumbered by about a paltry 4 to 1, good odds for any Jedi. I'm not too concerned about being outnumbered though, as in any battle we will always be outnumbered. We are very used to that and we have key advantages in other areas. Any one of use will be worth many of them.

Puny Borg!

We will put their name to the test!


Now, can we do it?



I'll tell you this. If I succeed in building my ship and landing her safely on Mars before the end of this decade, then I guarantee you we will do it.

I just have to build my ship in time and fly it to Mars.

No pressure!

Star Trek | Barclay Under Pressure

So that is my mission to build and fly the ship to Mars, landing her safely on the surface. As to why seven years in isolation, that is to unlock the colonies on Mars. You see people will never believe that we can do this, unless it is demonstrated to them. By me doing this mission it sends the belief to people that they too can build these colonies.

You see the only way that people have any chance of pulling this off is if they believe it.

That is what my mission, more than anything else, is designed to do.

To help give people that belief.

The fleets size I gave is for our offensive fleets that engage them when they arrive in our Solar System. The only two locations that they can arrive in are just outside Jupiter and just outside Saturn. They will arrive through a subspace corridor, which is a type of wormhole. That is set by Treaty. We will have a defensive space station at each location. Jupiter Station and Saturn Station. These two space stations will be our single most powerful defences.

Deep Space Nine

The Klingon fleets do not have to engage them. They may decide to bypass them and come straight for Earth or Mars. However we consider it highly likely that they will throw everything at those two space stations. This is because I set things up in the Treaty to give them an incentive if they take those space stations. They get an increase of 2 % on the range of their scanners if they take either space station in the invasion of 2046, and an increase of 3.8 % in the range of their sensors if they take both. If that does not seem a very significant amount, then understand that they would gain this benefit for a period of 120 years against humanity if they succeed in this task. That is the way it is set up by Treaty.

I did this to bait their fleets, for this is the ground that I would choose for the battle. I believe that they will mostly like go for this, in which case these two space stations would see the greatest battles.

The Klingons do not believe that we have any chance of building those space stations to a level that could withstand them in that time. I see differently.

If we get this right then this invasion fleet could be destroyed in one great battle.

This for me is the best case scenario. That they commit their full fleets to engaging us at Jupiter Station and Saturn Station.

Battle of Deep Space Nine

In addition we can build another 300 atmospheric Battlestars plus another 4,000 Vipers based from Earth, if they get this far, plus an additional 80 Battlestars and an additional 400 Vipers (not including the Vipers on each Battlestar) and an additional 30 Panzer ships for each of three other bases of our choosing, which will be our Moon base and bases on the moons of Ganymede (at Jupiter) and Tethys (at Saturn).

Austin Powers – The Spy Who Shagged Me | Moon Base

We can also build fleets of 80 Battlestars and 20 Panzer ships for the orbital defences at each of Earth and Mars, and Mars also gets 300 atmospheric Battlestars plus another ground 4,000 Vipers just like Earth, if we can build them all.

They do not have to be Battlestars or Panzer ships. They can be other ships too, so long as the fighting force does not exceed what I have given.

And of course our space stations and the fleets on these. I will write about these separately.

There is no restriction whatsoever on us building more ships than this, but the protection in the Treaty only applies to the fleet sizes that I give here. Anything beyond the fleet sizes I give here are not protected by the Treaty, in which case they would be wiped out instantly. Without that protection in the Treaty, they would have no hope whatsoever. They would not last a microsecond.

Only by fighting within the Rules of Engagement as defined by Treaty, which I spent more than three years negotiating, can we fight. Once we step outside that framework, our ships have no hope.


"Anything else you want to share with us, Gráinne, before your next topic?"

"Yes, Béibhinn. Only the Jedi can man these ships. Anyone attempting to go up against the Borg who has not achieved Ascension is not protected by Treaty, in which case he would be instantly killed."

"Only the Jedi can fight the Borg, Gráinne?"

"Yes, Aoife. Only the Jedi"

True Lies

Every one of us carries Borg cybernetic implants which connect us to the Borg computers via a neural link. Communication with the computers is done via subspace transceivers, like a radio transmitter and receiver but with a far greater range.

It is the first stage in our assimilation.

These implants are actually surprisingly large, but they are phase-shifted to be out-of-phase with us. That is why they cannot be detected directly with our medical scanners. There is a way to detect them indirectly using our technology, which I will be coming to, and technology that we obtain as a result of the newly formed Federation that is being set up will give us a way to detect the implants directly. I can not only detect them directly but I can pull their schematics from Borg computers. That is because of my access to Borg technology. I have been on a mission to get these things removed from us ever since I first became aware of them in early 2013.

Where do they come from? From the Small Greys.

Every single one of us has been implanted by these devices by the Small Greys. Every single one of us.
