Edit: Here was a another thread form almost 5 years ago.viewtopic.php?f=88&t=16873
This is what Junglefowl26 side about the lack of details of the tech in DT.
I don't think there are any technical details. I mean, one side has ships that literally run on magic....plus, it is kind of ecchi/comedy/space opera, so tech isn't a major focus, not the details at any rate.
And here is a little fact from suntiger745 about the choose you story/porno.
I wouldn't read too much into the tech though. The readers vote on options in daydream and Slavemasters can insert options too.
To illustrate: I remember the first drow/dirt hume ship fight. At first there was a vote to have the drow do massive damage easily. That annoyed some people and the next winning option was to have the dirt humes do massive damage easily.
Or the other way around.
The point is, what the tech can do, on both sides, isn't consistent. It is thus hard to define what the tech actually can and can't do, since the winning option can adjust or even outright contradict what has happened before (though we do try to avoid the later when writing the script).
So I have to agree the info about tech in SA is about as important as the plot in deep throat.
