Recently re-brought to my attention was a very sudden concept made in The Thursday War. Pelicans safely going through slipspace on their own.
Tart-Cart had a slipspace drive installed when the Huragok repaired it.
"It's bit of a stretch for Tart-Cart. But she'll make it. She's got a slipspace drive now."
"Is Devereaux actually rated to fly that?"
"She's got me, Captain."
"I know, I know."
"And who's going to argue about it? We're ONI."
"Yes, its the work of Beelzebub. Isn't it fabulous? Let's order another one."
Thats all the explanation we truly get. Which is incredibly strange since it was a big deal in First Strike that small vehicles using slipspace will likely tear themselves apart. This is shown when a heavily armored Spirit exits slipspace alone, it is heavily damaged.
So, what the hell did the Huragok do to Tart-Cart to make a dropship not rip itself to pieces and maintain its own stable slipspace field?
Extra armor with Forerunner enhancements? Would that even work?
This is incredibly important, and all we get is "Beelzebub!". Where does a slipspace drive even effectively go?
And if this was done, quite easily it'd seem, why aren't there more? Pelicans could have just slipspaced out of Requiem to get a warning out. Dropships can just slipspace underneath AA fire in combat zones and deploy forces or wreak havoc. Or both.
from my understanding of slipstream space (lords know I've had to get a small degree in physics just to write FTL in science fiction) the problem isn't the durability of the vehicle IF the vehicle has a Slipstream Space Drive, because the damage is incurred because the object in-question isn't natural to slipstream space, to counteract that a slipspace drive creates a quantum field which is loose technobabble that simply means it encases the craft in a field of its own universe the only thing that would be noticeable would be that the craft could be thrown about a little more than usual. The difference between the tart-cart and the spirit you've mentioned is who's generating the quantum field, the tart cart is generating its own quantum field whereas the spirit isn't. So all the Huragok did was make an slipspace drive that could be easily fitted to a pelican (there were power limitations before the huragoks)
edit: I didn't realise this was an old post or why it was reactivated until just now.
