Conner's Waterworld is a fictional Ocean based,Terran Class Penal Colony of Colonial Alliances of Space.Planet was discovered by Ulyseas John Conner Troy about two hundred years before his distant descendant Captain Arthor Conner Troy was born.Captain Ulyseas Conner Troy and crew were searching for a suitable suppy of water,for their Sleeper Ship and found this world in the process.This star ship is the HMS Sprearfish-part tramp freighter,part mercenary star ship and part submarine.
The year is 2065, and the world is united in peace. Mankind has conquered the stars, so attention turns to the exploration of the oceans. The vast, uncharted depths provide valuable minerals, but also hide new and mysterious alien races, not all of whom are entirely friendly.
The Aqualonean Undersea Cities take offence to the surface dweller's forays into their undersea kingdom. Titan, their ruler, swears to invade the surface world in revenge. All that can stop him is the Conner's WaterWorld Aquanaut Security Patrol.
WASP is an organisation of fearless individuals dedicated to preserving world peace. Their key weapon in the fight against the Aqualoneans is HMS Sprearfish, a futuristic, star ship submarine. Captain Arthor Conner Troy is its heroic captain, ably supported by his team at Marinerville headquaters:
Marina: A mute, tail-less mermaid. She was enslaved by Titan, who has threatened to destroy her people if she ever speaks.
Atlanta Shore: Marineville's assistant communications officer. She supervises the launch of Stingray. She loves Troy from afar, so has a friendly rivalry with Marina.
Commander Sam Shore: The head of WASP, he was once involved in a submarine acccident. He uses a special hoverchair to get around Marineville due to his injuries. He is Atlanta's father. George Lee Sheridan: nicknamed 'Phones' due to his expertise with the underwater Hydrophone communication system.
HMS Sprearfish is normally manned by two crewman, Captain Author Conner Troy and Commander Sheridan. Often these two were joined on missions by Marina, an amphibious woman from the undersea city of Pacifica who serves as guide and expert on undersea life. Consistent with Anderson's writing style, beautiful Marina seemed to be Tempest's love interest, though they never came out with it directly.
HMS Sprearfish was based in a large underground pen located deep beneath the Panthalashean Ocean headquarters building at Marinerville. When called into action from their base, the HMS Sprearfish crew would slide down "Injector Tubes" which transported them into their positions on the submarine. Stingray was then lowered into the water to speed down a long submerged tunnel to a secret ocean door from which it emerged undetected into the open ocean.a highly sophisticated combat submarine built for speed and manoeuvrability, is the flagship of the Conner's WaterWorld Aquanaut Security Patrol , security organisation based at Marineville in the year 2065. She is capable of speeds of up to 600 knots and advanced pressure compensators allow her to submerge to depths of over 36,000 feet, which permits cruising to the bottom of any part of any ocean in the world.She can also travel much faster,using the Aqualonean Aquawarp Undersea Drive System.
Commander Sam , whose daughter Lieutenant Atlanta is also a operative and is enamoured of Troy. Sub-Lieutenant John Fisher also regularly takes shifts at Marineville Control.
During the course of the series, Stingray encounters lots of underwater races, both hostile and otherwise. The "Aquaphibians", a submarine warrior race, appear frequently, often under the command of King Titan (modelled on Laurence Olivier), the ruler of the underwater city of Titanica.
All sorts of water-related terrain is likely to show up on a Water World. In addition to Ocean, Shore, Island, Archipelago, etc, you'll also probably have derelict ships, flotsam and jetsam, raft city, flood plain, underwater ruins and other signs that there used to be inhabited land just below where the water is now.
Once upon a time, the Water World had plenty of dry land. Then some sort of climate change mucked it all up. It could be global warming melted the polar ice cap - but that'd have to be a huge ice cap for the land masses to just go away. So, perhaps the current state is the aftermath of an impact from a enormous icy comet. Often overlaps with After The End. After The Endrating: 0+–x=Basic Information= After the End is a type of setting. It takes place in a world where a devastating event reduced most of civilization to rubble.

An Ocean Planet is a planet whose entire surface is covered by very deep water, a single ocean hundreds of kilometers deep. This is very different from just being a wet and flooded terrestrial planet - an ocean planet could easily be 50% water by mass.
In the depths of those oceans, there may exist exotic forms of ice - ice formed not by cold, but by pressure.
History and FormationEdit
Out beyond the snow line planets tend to be close to 50-50 ice and rock. However, there's evidence that planetary orbits shift and wander during the formation of a planetary system. So it's possible a planet might start out as a big ball of ice (either an ice giant (planet) or an ice dwarf (planet), then move close enough to it's sun to thaw out. The result would be an Ocean Planet.
If the Ocean Planet got especially close to it's sun, it would become a Hot Neptune.
Astronomy and geographyEdit
Conner's Waterworld was in a system of 13 planets orbiting an aging star south of the Rishi Maze, a dwarf satellite galaxy in a decaying orbit around the main galaxy. The stormy waterworld of Kamino was located in Wild Space. Kamino was the fifth of the 13 planets in the Conner's system, that mysteriously lay on its own between the and the main galactic disk. The planet orbited an aging star called Conner's Waterworld and had three moons that orbited the planet itself, including Conner's Waterworld. The planet was composed of a molten core with a rocky mantle and silicate rock crust. Climatic change had long ago submerged the planet's continents, drowning the planet under a global ocean that covered 85% of the surface,leaving the rest a scattering of smaller swampy islands and continents. Although there were a few islands that were once mountains, they were rained on almost every so often. It was subject to savage storms and powerful lightning bursts that could be seen from orbit.
Conner's Hydro Dome Cities.Edit

was based in a large underground pen located deep beneath the Panthalashean Ocean headquarters building at Marinerville. When called into action from their base, the crew would slide down "Injector Tubes" which transported them into their positions on the submarine.Just like on Earth the local Citizens of Conner's Waterworld Hydro Dome Cities must support themselves financially on the weekdays by going to work so unfortunately they are forced to battle the treacherous climate of this planet on their morning commute. The subway systems to the layman would appear to look very similar to the mass transit in New York except the stations here are three times as crowded, partially flooded, and apparently the subway cars themselves travel over water canals,interconnected throughout the multi domed matrix network,that network each continental city group.These subshuttle trains leed lower and upper landing platforms.
Seafish was then lowered into the water to speed down a long submerged tunnel to a secret ocean door from which it emerged undetected into the open ocean.a highly sophisticated combat submarine built for speed and manoeuvrability, is the flagship of the World Aquanaut Security Patrol (WASP), a 21st Century security organisation based at Marineville in the year 2065. She is capable of speeds of up to 600 knots and advanced pressure compensators allow her to submerge to depths of over 36,000 feet, which permits cruising to the bottom of any part of any ocean in the world.
Conner's Waterworld was the capital city of Maritime City and surround by a cluster several major Sea Trading facility. It was also where the bounty hunter Captain Arthor Conner Troy, the template for the clone army, lived for a time. Captain Arthor Conner Troy"son" Arthor Conner Troy,junior lived with him.The Sub Mariners, who can breathe underwater, breath the air above the Great Seas and swims down to a sunken city on the ocean floor,colonied by Aqualonean refugee's from the Tauron Empire.
The city consisted of a network of stilt structures that spanned more than a hundred kilometers along Kamino's western equator and was considered by many to be the heart of Conner World society. The millions of inhabitants who occupied the City worked either with the merchant docks program ,the United Seadome Cities Coast Guard or with the bureaucracy. No took residence within the city, nor was there any public space. Nearly all who worked within the city lived in numerous satellite cities situated around the capital. Constant traffic ran to and from , as workers, bureaucrats, and many others traveled to and from their homes. The only living space in the city was the quarters of the prime minister and the military staff, and a group of apartments for cloning scientists.
Hydro Cycle uses a magnetohydrodynamic propulsion system, a technology that leaves the water and sea bottom undisturbed and unpolluted.Hydro Cycle is fully electric and has a ballast system inspired by submarines. A special bodysuit is necessary for underwater use. While drivers are in their vehicles, they breathe stored air and recharge the suit, which powers a special underwater propulsion system in the suit. Hydro Cycle currently targets professional marine hunters, but will become a must for anyone curious about the sea.
The scientists resided in in alternating shifts of three months each before returning to their homes and families. architecture was influenced by two primary architectural styles originating from Atlantis and Terra. The concept for the city being built on stilts was derived from the Aldelian Supersea style. Middle-period Krorral was adopted in the form of the sweeping and centralized dome structures. An additional appeal of the Krorral element was that the rain-sloughing nature of the architecture bore numerous similarities to the first Conner's Waterworld land colonies. Most all of these buildings where accented by high power lightning rods, dotting most platforms, even minor ones. If a rod was damaged however, and lightning struck it, a fundamental flaw in the design of the rod would prompt the lightning rod, and usually the whole platform it stood on, to explode.
