Doubtful considering what we know about Mars' past. I mean, just look at these magnetic fields.

The more densely you pack people together, the more strict the government has to be if it is to maintain an orderly society. Just look at the difference between living in New York City and living in a rural area. When you live in the city, life is much more regimented.

>> No.23056587

That's a topic perhaps better suited for a /pol/ thread. Suffice to say, there are certainly those who suspect the government is more interested in maintaining the status quo and the current balance of power, than actually serving the best interests of the people.

The kind of technology present on a ship that massive would fundamentally change the world, probably bringing a bout a post-scarcity society (since its richly ornamented hull suggests that the civilization that built it has sufficient resources to focus on form over function). That would not necessarily be the best thing for the government.

Alternately, even if the govenrment isn't workign for some sinister purpose, if they lack the technology or budget to salvage the alien wreck, they may want to keep it secret in order to avoid a sort of global arms race to reach the ship.

I wonder how well the Imperium measures up to EVE...

Eve out logistics them hard and has easy ftp, though to get to non-gated systems they'll need cap ships.

An individual Imperial Frigate is about equivalent to an EVE Battlecruiser in a stand up fight. An EVE Capital Ship is about equal to an Imperial Cruiser, except the Titans, which can probably match Imperial Battlecruisers. EVE has no match for an Imperial Battleship. EVE's weapons are also ridiculously short range, but their better point to point FTL compensates for this.

Essentially, EVE could probably give the Imperium a run for its money if the 40k setting was as it is, but in a straight up fight the Imperium would win by sheer attrition. EVE would just be losing ships faster than they can replace them, especially once the Imperium takes down the jumpgate network.
