UnderCurrent - Can You break the Cycle?

'The UnderCurrent Incident' of 2022 gave humanity it's first glance at alien life, thought not in an expected way. It allowed for a VR like vision into the lives of an entire race of people separate to our own. This novel serialises their story, the story of 5 ordinary pilots part-taking in an interplanetary war of galactic proportions.

With no way of knowing if this glimpse into a foreign society is an alternate reality or some distant planet in our own universe, it would only take so long for the public to demand a guided tour - Now you hold that very thing in your hands, with exclusive access to the project and transcripts from the original experiment's team. You will learn of the lives to which UnderCurrent affords us a view into, of the Battleship Fluchtig's soldiers, of a conflict that spans far more then any of them know and of their hunt for a 'Dangerous Submarine'.

-Blurb of "The UnderCurrent Experience" by Pierre Havelock on behalf of her Majesties Government.

This is my own original work, with obvious inspirations from the likes of Gundam, Dune, 1984, Evangellion, Grimgar and anime in general.
All ideas and concepts shown are my own, though I do Parody some things.
HoneyFeed has no resource page. A shame as I'd love to share some of the research I've come across on mecha, living in Space, and amputees. It's a worthy topic we should all be more educated on. You may find this video link a brief intro into that world - https://youtu.be/piiFI8QafHs

There is a degree of deconstructionism towards the mecha genre involved with an onus on taking a more practical look at the features of that mode of storytelling, giving actually worldbuilding explanations for some of the fantastical equipment involved and using the likes of military structure and resource management in conjunction with the story, but hopefully this is something anyone can enjoy with no prior knowledge of the genre traditions.

Thanks for reading, feedback is most welcome!
