Original Starting post for this thread:
As many know, I am trying to be a writer. I like writing science fiction. Well to write science fiction, you actually need to do your homework.

I was attempting to come up with a way to have fighters docked to a ship, without having them inside the ship. Of course there would be a maintenance bay inside the ship, so that they maybe repaired, but over all the fighters would be attached to the outside of the ship.

Problems.

1) Docking would require both ships to be moving at relative velocity to each other, with the fighter moving just slightly faster than the ship and maneuvering to dock.

While we do this with the ISS (international space station) This is a lengthy process which wouldn't allow for a rapid launch should a surprise attack occur.

2) As you wouldn't want your pilots space walking to the fighters... The cockpits of the fighters will have to be designed in such a manner as to be attacked to an air lock. (sealed or unsealed)

While feasible to say that the cockpits are simply armor plates folded over each other, with the lower fold forming a ramp to walk inside the fighter and the upper fold being covered by the lower fold. Any failure to dock correctly would result in jamming the doors closed and the near total destruction of the fighter and its docking port. (thank you relativity of science.)

3) Should the ship sustain damage during the battle, the ship's docking ports may become damaged. This could prevent the fighters from docking at all.

4) In all reality, space combat won't be fighter based as ships (100 to 1,000 meters long/wide/high or any combination.) finding each other in the void of space is going to be a problem in and of itself... Small fighters would spend hours simply flying to the other fighters and could be seperated by hundreds of thousands of KM... Where by the time they reach the enemy base ships to launch their small missiles at it's defenses so that their own bigger ships may fire their missiles and not be intercepted by the opposing sides anti missile systems.... Your fighters would be shot out of the void by lasers which cannot be seen or dodged at the ranges which realistic combat would occur.

Still think no work goes into writing science fiction?

Science doesn't suck. Your ability to reinvent the wooly mammoth does though.

So I tried to create a large land carnivore with tusk and discovered that no place that I can place a set of tusk, would allow them to do what I wanted them to be used for... And once I came close... My carnivore would have died due to the tusk interfering with the process of eating, or worst, would have made the skull so heavy that the size of the beast would have been too large to have packs.

Science sucks from time to time.

No 3tit aliens. Likely no actual sex scenes either.

Sex scenes in scifi only degrade the story as they have no useable or reframing value. If you can't keep the attention of the reader by making them care for the characters, then the book ought to fail and you should be writing porn.

Now I will allude to characters having sex, most times by them being alone together and beginning to strip and end the scene there or start it with them after the fact. I am not a woman and from all accounts, only women write good sex.

Are there hot alien chicks with 3 tits in your book? That's all people really want, otherwise they wouldn't have done a Total Recall remake less than 20 years after the original.

So I finally figured out how to get around a major problem with exoskeleton suits for futuristic stories without cheapening the idea with unrealistic garbage like genetically modified humans.

First the problem. Any suit worn by a person must carry its own weight. This means from head to the shoulders where the arms connect as well. Both from the shoulders and back to the waist, from the waist to the legs and finally to the feet.

For years we have seen warhammer or halo use engineered humans, either genetically like warhammer (8foot tall humans) or through a combination of drugs and tech. (halo)... Both are soon to be obsolete.

Nano fiber muscle suits. Namely the type filled with wax which allow the muscle to extend and contrac when the wax melts.

Now like your muscles, these muscles must be attached to a bone structure. That would be you, namely the suit you wear. The armored suit comes into play much like the armor of today, by adhering the armor like we currently do. It really is that simple.

Da Vinci bless science.

Kinda hard to sit in an F35 when you have a dragon's tail. I guess I forgot that part in describing the inahbitants of Cluedo 68.

Did I mention the males have 2 dicks? One is on their head. That's why everyone else in the known universe call them dickheads.

They have a very selective diet though. The only eat Jeeps patrolling mines.

But, but, but...

There's no Integalactic Federation of Planets version of the F35. One that can accomadate the stubby bodied, 3 armed, 5 legged, eyeless (they have internal electromagnetic radiation organs able to "see" all known wavelengths of the spectrum) of the inhabitants of Cluedo 68.

Or is there...?
