Object: 2275-31A Origin Unknown
A trio of Frigates carefully approach a battered and apparently unmanned spacecraft discovered loitering near a perimeter world O the very outer edges of Human Settled Space. The vessel appeared to be heavily damaged by collisions, and obvious weapons fire and did not respond to any attempt to communicate with it. Probes entered the ship and discovered it was fitted for an organic crew. However no crew living or dead were found aboard the ship. Automated drones and robots appeared to make up the entire "crew" of the unknown warship. 

When Humans attempted to board the vessel it sealed its access points and began to maneuver, a wide variety of weapons were detected as becoming active and fire control sensors were detected by the Frigates which beat a hasty retreat. When a better equipped and more heavily protected survey squadron returned to the system they found no sign of the unknown vessel

Belt fed 9mm Machine Gun
Based on the prototype created by August Coender. the weapon feeds from a disintegrating link housed n a drum to the side of the weapon. Intended as a self defense weapon for vehicles, or as a weapon for close combat the weapon lacks the power of a rifle cartridge but has a massive advantage in magazine capacity over a magazine fed Submachine Gun. In a vehicle the weapon could be fed by a large box allowing it to maintain suppression fire against infantry or hose down a neighboring vehicle to protect it from infantry trying to place explosives or use a can of gas to set it on fire. 

The front sight flips up, or down to allow it to be used through a narrow firing slot or pistol port, and back up to be used when carried by a soldier. it is a fairly straightforward blowback weapon firing from an open bolt. The design has the benefit making it simpler to manufacture than a gas operated system using tubing and stamped parts. with only a few parts requiring any sort of complex machining. 

The practicality of this type of weapon man never be known since Coender is about the only example of a belt fed 9mm I can find records of, and that gun was incomplete and had to be competed by US army to test the design. And evidently Coender was cantankerous enough to spend a while hiding out in a cabin to avoid interrogation after the war , so it's likely he wasn't involved n the work or testing.

Setting here at six in the morning after another all nighter....Just sent the Draft of my Book to mongoose publishing.

it's 136 pages of brain burn for me....but at least now I can take a breather until the editors over at Mongoose send me the list of stuff I need to fix. then I am back on coffee, aspirin, and antacid till I get it right.

This is the first time I have written anything for publication bigger than a short article, and it's been a learning experience. I don't know how people who do this for a living manage to do this on a regular basis.  Hopefully i'll get to figure that out for myself.

Thanks to the guys and gals around here who gave me feedback, encouragement and advice. Some of you guys have been inspirations to me, helped shape my view of how to do game material, and my style( as pathetic as my scribbles are in my own opinion) 
    I felt like I was passing ten miles of barbed wire when I hit the send button a bit ago, I just hope when it comes out you guys don't laugh to hard.

Just wanted to wish you a happy birthday and to say that why have a birthday that you celebrate for a day? Why not make it a whole month! I do and its so worth it. You can get more good things done in that time than you can in one busy day.
