Chapter One: Ground

In war, the ground you occupy, the ground you move into, that ground determines everything.

In space, ground is a euphemism for the matrix of complex actions occurring in multiple vectors.

In space combat everything is in motion, and the ground itself is always changing. The combat commander must be able to calculate every variable.

Chapter Two: Time

In the theatre of space combat, on the ZeroG battlefield, unified action was everything. It was a dance of the greatest complexity.

Keeping your forces arrayed together required more than the physical controls; to move, change vectors, to defend, attack. It required communication.

When it was over, those remaining were unsure of the next move.

Chapter Three: Light

During the battle, in the space around the Central Planet, the brilliant display of energies was followed by the absence of any light at all.

The onslaught lit the structure of HomeWorld, revealing to human eyes for the first time the expanse of the artificial world.

It was more massive than the mind could imagine.

Chapter Four: Space

In the theatre of ZeroG combat, there was no such thing as ZeroG, the label was a misnomer.

The forces of Gravity were absolutely crucial.

Combat took place in the vacuum of space, but gravity wells, singularities, artificial mass, the deployment of these devices, and the navigation of them, they were the keys to victory.

Chapter Five: Movement

ZeroG tactics must be developed according to the following understanding:

In the vacuum of space, when you are maneuvering and not subject to gravity, where there is no resistance, everything is in motion.

There is no straight line between you and your objective.

There is no clear path.

Every object in the vicinity is tracked.

Chapter Six: Supply

The majority of the High Command anticipated a prolonged engagement.

The entire fleet did not launch, only expeditionary forces.

The most seasoned and combat ready commanders took the lead.

During the insurrection, this mistake became obvious.

The failure to launch left the majority of the Imperial forces vulnerable, subject to attack.

The rebels took advantage.

Chapter Seven: Range

In the ever changing dynamics of ZeroG combat the range between opponents was in constant flux.

Every victory created new obstacles, sudden changes in the vectors of pilotless craft, the creation of debris fields, scattering in the void.

Every object had to be scanned and tracked, every possible danger had to be analyzed for threats.
