Chapter 971 Spacetime Splicing Technology
The same theory would usually result in different technological skills. Being a Universal Civilization did not mean that they were omniscient. Just like how the three Universal Civilizations could not grasp each other’s specialty technology, the various civilizations would have a technological skill tree that was unique to themselves.
Han Xiao was familiar with the special skill that the Kunde Race had displayed. It was a technological skill called Spacetime Splicing Technology. It was a branch of spacetime theory.
Spacetime skills were extremely advanced, but they were not rare. The three Universal Civilizations and the various Star Cluster Civilizations had all grasped a certain degree of spacetime technology. Even the Mages had some spacetime related spells.
However, the Spacetime Splicing Technology also had its own uniqueness.
The three Universal Civilizations did not reveal the exact theory behind it in Han Xiao’s previous life, and Han Xiao only understood the general situation. This Spacetime Splicing Technology seemed to be a type of spacetime shuttling technique, but it was very different.
The way Han Xiao saw it, the Kunde Race fleet was able to restore themselves because they used the Spacetime Splicing Technology to freeze their fleet in a state before being destroyed. Regardless of how many times they were destroyed, they would be able to return to their previous state. It was like the legendary save and load method.
The movement of the fleet was the other effect of the Spacetime Splicing Technology. They first made a certain action into a parameter and simulated the entire action in spacetime. They then broke apart the spacetime continuum and split spacetime up into different time fragments. To put it simply, they transformed ‘something that they wanted to do’ into a movie with every time fragment being a scene in the movie.
Following which, they then locked themselves in the spacetime fabric and cut off the past and future. The entire process was cut off, and only the present was left behind. As such, the fleet would jump to different points in time while skipping through the process. Because there was no process, the attacks of the dynasty were not able to stop them.
Another way of putting it was that the fleet transformed into a high ping warrior. Even if they got hit, they were only hit in the previous frame.
This technological skill had many different uses but also had its side effects. The spacetime fabric of the entire universe was connected and a system that could not be calculated. As long as there were any peculiarities in the fabric, it would be self-corrected.
For example, after various spacetime freezing or slowdown spells were used, the area of effect would slowly revert back to normal, leaving behind the modified physical objects. However, it would not have an effect on the spacetime fabric.
The side effects of the Spacetime Splicing Technology came from the self recovery of the spacetime fabric after being broken.
By the time the spacetime fabric repaired itself, their entire physical being would be completely wiped out as though they did not exist.
This meant that their deaths were already announced, and they would disappear anytime.
In my previous life, the three Universal Civilizations made use of a lot of supporting equipment to stabilize the spacetime fabric in order to greatly extend the time taken for the fleet to disappear. If the dynasty took this technology from the Kunde Race, it means that the dynasty will definitely improve on it over the next few versions, and the Spacetime Splicing Technology in the Kunde Race’s hands is probably only the first version. This means that it will be much easier to deal with them, and the side effects will be far worse.
Meeting the attack of a native civilization would only give the dynasty trouble. But now, the dynasty would be able to receive a decent spoil of war.
Who knew whether the stowaways that secretly gave the natives technology knew that the Kunde Race grasped such a technology? Although the stowaways would definitely observe the strength of the Kunde Race, the Spacetime Splicing Technology was a confidential technological skill, and it would not be discovered so easily.
The stowaways in the Flickering World were not too different from suicide troops, and the Super Star Cluster Civilizations would not send out too many Calamity Grades for such a mission.
“If they didn’t know about it, they will definitely suffer a huge loss. They wanted to backstab the dynasty but ended up giving them a huge treasure,” Han Xiao sneered in his mind.
On the other side, Tarrokov did not remain idle either.
As an experienced commander, he had been through many different battles. Although he did not know the theory behind the Spacetime Splicing Technology, the alarm said that it was related to spacetime and thus employed the relevant measures.
Very quickly, a dynasty fleet awaiting their orders on Planet Lighthouse set off with a large amount of spacetime stabilizing equipment and a large group of Mages that specialized in spacetime magic.
Ordinary attacks were not useful, but spacetime attacks would create some trouble for the Kunde Race fleet.
After the second fleet entered the battle, the situation changed greatly. The distance that the Kunde Race fleet could move shortened, and the speed of their disappearance increased.
Everyone in the command room watched the battle calmly.
After a short while, the Kunde Race disappeared and never appeared again.
There was not an intense battle scene, and the Kunde Race fleet was wiped out just like that.
Despite the enemy knowing that their death was certain, they still wanted to deal a heavy blow to the enemy.
“Has it been settled?” Tarrokov asked doubtfully.
“Chief Commander, spacetime has returned to normal, and there aren’t any abnormalities on the radar.”
“Er… this may be the side effect of the enemy’s technology. It shouldn’t be perfected yet. However, we cannot let down our guard before being sure that the enemy has been destroyed. Continue to scan the surrounding region. Also, open the shield of Planet Lighthouse and activate the emergency escape system. If the enemy suddenly appears near the planet, we will be able to escape safely.”
Because he did not understand the enemy, he did not dare let his guard down.
Han Xiao, however, already knew that the enemy was dead and thought to himself, The dynasty obtained this technology from the Kunde Race in my previous life, but I didn’t receive any news about it. This means that the dynasty did a good job keeping the matter confidential. I don’t think they will allow their allies to exchange for such technology. Thus, I will have to take things into my own hands if I want to grab this technology.
It was a rare opportunity for him to obtain unique technology. Han Xiao was truly tempted.
Since the dynasty still was not aware of the theory of the Spacetime Splicing Technology, he could make use of this opportunity to obtain it for himself.
Although he would not be able to use it, the members of the army might be able to use it.
Would the Spacetime Amber be compatible with the Spacetime Splicing Technology? Han Xiao was a little curious.
In the depths of the Dust Light Star Cluster, a large Kunde Race fleet was slowly moving in the universe.
In the conference room of the main flagship, the leader and upper echelons of the Kunde Race were present.
After discovering that the Crimson Dynasty was coming after their territory, the upper echelons had resolutely left their mother planet and followed the fleet.
Since they had already sent out most of their civilians and temporarily abandoned all their colonial planets, they no longer needed to hesitate about war.
“We’ve lost contact with Yelu. The assault plan has failed.”
“Have they died?”
“I am not sure. They should have used the Spacetime Splicing Technology.”
“Does this mean that even the Spacetime Splicing Technology is useless against the dynasty?”
Everyone’s mood was heavy as they listened to the report.
The Kunde Race leader then said slowly, “Make use of the scorched earth plan.”
Upon hearing that, everyone’s expression… shells changed slightly.
They had come up with many different plans, and the scorched earth plan was their final resort. They had originally planned to only make use of such a plan when their loss was determined, but they never imagined that their leader would start off with such a plan.
In truth, the members of the upper echelons present were not confident about the war either. The only reason they had stayed behind was because they were not willing to hand over their homeland to bandits. They did not wish to let the Crimson Dynasty take over their homeland without paying a price.
The scorched earth plan would make use of the never-ending expansion property of the Primordial Psionic Energy to destroy their homeland to ensure that the dynasty would not be able to obtain anything. They would then retreat and follow the members of their race.
However, they found it difficult to destroy their own homeland.
As no one responded to him, the Kunde Race leader said with a deep voice, “Since no one objects to the plan, begin the arrangements. As for the Crimson Dynasty’s fleet, send out our fleet to intercept them and tie the enemy down. Try to stall for time and slowly let them into our homeland and the lockdown region of the scorched earth plan.”
Everyone’s mood was heavy. There was no turning back if they chose to destroy their homeland.
The scorched earth plan required time to implement, and they needed to send their fleet to slow down the dynasty. This meant that many of their comrades would die on the front lines.
A few days after the ambush on Planet Lighthouse, war finally erupted on the frontlines, and the Kunde Race fleet appeared to exchange fire with the dynasty’s fleet.
The division that Teny led also met more and more enemies.
It was not that there was not an opportunity for battle. However, Teny was far too good at fighting, and the enemies that he met were all easily defeated by his strategies. They would be able to defeat the enemy in a long-ranged battle, and there was not even a chance to engage in close quarters combat.
Furthermore, Teny intended to protect the members of the Black Star Army, so Nero was not even able to fight a single battle after following the fleet for almost a month.
If this continued, Han Xiao was tempted to use his Virtual Intrusion and remotely control the Kunde Race to attack Teny.
Thankfully, Teny did not let Han Xiao stretch out his demonic hands so quickly, and the Black Star Army finally engaged in a close combat battle.
Nero finally welcomed his first time.
