Commander's Logs - October 30th, 2040 through November 1st, 2040October 30, 2040
A double dose of research and development today - the science team delivered designs for both a new submarine and a new submersible weapons system.
The submarine has been codenamed "Manta"◊
, and the SWS - which can be equipped with a Sonic Oscillator - has been codenamed "Displacer"◊
The Displacer SWS will be of great value in combat, but the Manta looks to be of better value as a stepping-stone to further development.
