Sleeping with Nova

Nova is one of the residents of the Capital Wasteland town of Megaton. She works as the local prostitute at Moriarty's Saloon. For 120 Bottlecaps, you can rent a room with her. It is possible that she may take over the Bar later in the game if Colin is killed.

Contents

Background

Nova was born in 2252.[1]

Daily schedule

Nova works at Moriarty's Saloon as a prostitute to pay back the debt she owes Colin Moriarty. She hangs around the Saloon's first floor talking to the locals and the Lone Wanderer. For 120 caps you can rent a bed for the night.

If Moriarty is killed, Nova announces that she has quit her service, and will find a better job. She is implied to have taken over Gob's job as she still hangs out inside the Pub, and sleeps there as well. It is also implied that she and Gob have a romantic relationship, judging by their special dialog.

Interactions with the player character

After inquiring about Moriarty and completing a successful Speech check, she will give you the password for Colin's terminal, which contains valuable information about your Father. A male player with the Lady Killer Perk can aquire the password as well.

When you inquire about hiring Nova's services she advises you to rent a room. When you inquire about the cost of the room she replies "Well... for you? A room and some company will run you 120 caps. Up front". After paying for the room she directs you to the room with the "big bed" and straight after finishing your conversation she walks up the stairs to the room, lies down on the bed and appears to fall asleep. Attempting to speak with her at this point will result in the usual dialogue choices. However from this exchange you do get access to sleep in that bed for a period of time.

Nova is not picky, both male and female players can acquire her services. If the player is male and possesses the Lady Killer Perk, the dialogue and innuendo from her becomes more evidently playful and suggestive. Some of Nova's dialogue, and comments from other Megaton dwellers, suggests she may have considered leaving the job and trying to move on with her life even though she supposedly owes Moriarty some caps, but no quest or dialog options exist to try and convince her to do this beyond a single mention.

Merc Charmer Outfit - - -

Notes

  • When questioned if she's ever "serviced" Gob, she simply replies that while she knows he'd like it, he is below her standards.
  • In NPC-to-NPC conversation, Moriarty admonishes her for using Jet.
  • Nova can be mezzed, after a few tries, either by reloading saves or continuously shooting her.
  • Nova and Jericho can be found in a conversation where Jericho propositions Nova for a relationship. She quickly declines, saying that her place is at Moriarty's and that she has to stay.

Appearances

Nova appears only in Fallout 3.

Final Fantasy

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Supernova in Final Fantasy VII.

Supernova, sometimes referred to as Nova, is a recurring enemy ability. It generally deals a large amount of non-elemental magic damage to all enemies. The same spell is also used by several enemies as a powerful move intended to finish off the party.

Contents

Appearances

Final Fantasy VII

Super Nova is not an Enemy Skill that can be learned by the party, but is a very powerful attack known only by Safer∙Sephiroth. Its animation is the longest in the entire game, showing the destruction of the entire Solar System by use of a meteor summoned with the use of the knowledge gained from the Lifestream. It inflicts massive damage and status effects but cannot actually KO an enemy. Oddly enough, the attack can be used more than once by Safer∙Sephiroth, calling into question the authenticity of the animation showing the solar system being destroyed, as this accompanies every casting of the spell.

Final Fantasy X

Nova can be learned by Kimahri as a Ronso Rage Overdrive. It can be learned by drawing it from the Omega Weapon in the Omega Ruins or Nemesis in Monster Arena. Rikku can also Mix a Supernova by combining a Dark Matter with any other item. Nemesis can also use a version of the spell called Armageddon.

Final Fantasy X-2

Supernova is a Blue Bullet that can be learned while wearing the Gun Mage Dressphere. The spell is learned from Ultima Weapon. In addition Paragon uses Big Bang, which has the same animation sequence as Supernova.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Super Nova appears as Sephiroth's EX Burst in this game. Its animation is similar to its Final Fantasy VII incarnation, although the animation is much shorter.

Trivia

  • The equation used in the Final Fantasy VII variation of Supernova is of no coincidence and is not a made up equation. It goes as follows:

Φ = WUγ + RUρ + SUγUρ
W = -SUγΦ
AU = (GMek^-2)^1/3
n = Πr^2

The first two equations calculate the Sun's and planet's potential attractive forces, the third equation calculates the Earth's potential attractive forces and the fourth misstates that the asteroid is working on a two dimensional level, all to direct the energy used to cause the supernova.[1]

"This is the prototype NOVA Bomb, nine fusion warheads encased in lithium triteride armor. When detonated, it compresses its fissionable material to neutron-star density, boosting the thermonuclear yield a hundredfold. I am Vice Admiral Danforth Whitcomb, temporarily in command of the UNSC military base Reach. To the Covenant uglies that might be listening, you have a few seconds to pray to your damned heathen gods. You all have a nice day in hell..."
Vice Admiral Danforth Whitcomb's recording on the NOVA bomb, right before it is activated in the space adjacent to the planet Joyous Exultation.

The Nova Bomb is a Human very high-yield combination of nine nuclear fusion warheads, used by the United Nations Space Command.

Contents

Background

The NOVA Bomb is a cluster of nine nuclear warheads encased in lithium triteride. When the warheads are activated, the lithium triteride shell focuses the blast in upon itself, multiplying the destructive power a hundredfold. This gives the NOVA Bomb an unprecedented payload for its size. Its capability to destroy a planet has earned it the nickname "Planet-Killer". It should be noted that on the one recorded event when a NOVA Bomb was detonated in the midst of a fleet close to a planet, it scorched one quarter of the planet's surface due to a concentration of thermal energy inside the planet's atmosphere; it also shattered a moon. Any further detailed analysis on the full power of this bomb has yet to be mentioned in the Halo series, but it is known that it is the most destructive weapon in the UNSC's arsenal.

Theory

The NOVA Bomb's explosive power is quickly depleted due to the lack of particles or atmosphere around it when it's detonated in space. This results in a much quicker release of energy, with the possibility of even further multiplying its damage to ships, planets, moons, and other celestial objects due to the lack of energy absorbing particles in space. However if detonated inside a planet's atmosphere, a portion of the total energy generated would be dispersed throughout the atmosphere. The density as well as composition of the atmosphere are the largest contributing factors when determining how much energy is dispersed. Even though the power of the NOVA Bomb is not mentioned in the book, a low end can be calculated:

Assumptions: the moon is 2km, and the NOVA bomb is only 5,000 km away.

Calc: Apply the Inverse Squared Law: Source Energy / (4 * Pi * R2) the radius is the distance from the source to the range.

x/ (4 * 3.14195... * 5,0002) = 4 Megatons per square kilometer to fragment a 2km moon which requires 8 Megatons to be fragmented.

x = 1.2 Petatons.

Some may find this yield hard to believe for a fusion device, but the stated effects to the planet and nearby moon require explosive power of this magnitude.

History

It was intended for the NOVA Bomb to be used in space against the Covenant Fleet during the Battle of Reach. In the novel Halo: First Strike, it was left on Reach and "repurposed" by Admiral Whitcomb. His reasoning was that "either the Covenant pack those bombs up and take them home for study, a possibility that I hope to God happens. A bomb like that could crack their homeworld in two. Or, the bombs stay here and they'll stop the Covenant on Reach..."[1]

The only documented triggering of a NOVA Bomb occurred when it was accidentally detonated by a group of Huragok stationed on the Covenant Sublime Transcendence. Immediately after Kwassass, a fellow crew member, deciphered Admiral Whitcomb's message, the Huragok, through their curiosity and frenzied obsession, fixed the circuitry of the bomb, detonating it despite Kwassass's attempts to stop them. The Huragok completed the detonation timer's circuit, which promptly resulted in its activation. The resulting explosion occurred between a Covenant outpost planet Joyous Exultation and its moon, Malhiem, scorching half of the planet and shattering the moon. The resulting winds on Joyous Exultation flattened cities and spawned tidal waves. Radiation flooded the planet and killed everything, penetrating the surface of the planet to its core. Every ship within the NOVA Bomb's range, save for those on the opposite side of the planet boiled and vaporized in an instant. It is unknown what the Covenant did with the planet, but it is unable to support life any more.[2]

The NOVA Bomb explosion severely damaged three-quarters of the fleet that was there, totaling over 300 ships. Eighteen Destroyers, two Cruisers, one Carrier and the Flagship Incorruptible escaped the NOVA Bomb explosion due to a Slipspace jump en masse just seconds prior to the explosion. Other ships arrived to reinforce the Incorruptible arrived from Joyous Exultation, suggesting that they escaped the bomb's detonation as a result of being positioned on the opposite side of the planet. The novel describes the explosion as though "a small star erupted between Joyous Exultation and its moon."

Exactly what effect this had on later events is unknown. If the NOVA hadn't detonated and the fleet had survived, the Elites would certainly have had a larger attack force, and been better able to crush the Brute defenses during the Battle of Installation 00. Imperial Admiral 'Wattinree seems to have shown no reconsideration of the humans status as heretics, even after rejecting the Prophets, sending a fleet to Onyx to claim it for the Elites - if he had survived, especially given the amount of reverence given to someone of his stature, it is unknown whether he would have allied with the Arbiter and humanity.

Delta Halo

During the Battle of Installation 05, and the subsequent Quarantine of the Installation and High Charity, Cortana requested that UNSC HIGHCOM deploy a NOVA Bomb around Installation 05 and High Charity to stop the outbreak of the Flood in order to destroy the Covenant Holy Capital.

However, this request was not granted likely due to the low number of nuclear warheads left and their need to protect the Inner Colonies. High Charity was not bombed and later landed on Installation 00. It is also possible that this request was granted, but that High Charity went into Slipspace before the warhead could even be launched. However this last possibility is highly unlikely because a nuclear warhead is very easily spotted when transitioning from a Slipspace jump because of the massive amount of Cherenkov radiation that is emitted during the final transition.

Trivia

  • The NOVA Bomb was a bomb mentioned in the novel Starship Troopers, wherein it is described as "being able to split a planet in half." It is likely that this inspired the Halo Universe's own NOVA Bomb.
  • While it was first used in Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, it was first mentioned in an earlier novel Halo: First Strike.
  • The bomb may be named after novae -- cataclysmic nuclear explosions of stars.

A genetic copy of Candela Greene, Nova served as Juraan's mistress from 2380. Nova's cloning process is unknown to the Federation, although speculation has assumed that the Talosians may be behind her creation. Although a complete copy of Candela Greene, Nova has free control of her pheromones, and seems to be more Orion then Human. (Star Trek: Generation Fleet; Star Trek Crusader)

Contents

History

It is believed Nova was created between 2375-2380 by using DNA that was taken from Candela Greene before she left Juraan in 2374. It is believed from that period Juraan. who was weary of the Romulan authorities, fled to have clones of himself, Ri'Pak, and also made Nova. Nova was not known to the Federation until 2386 when the USS Crusader successfully capture a pirate Bird of Prey, and found Nova.

It was confirmed that she was a complete clone of Captain Candela Greene, with the only difference being their personalities. In 2387 she would escape Starbase 140 with aide of the Zentradi during the Shockwave incident. In 2388 she would surface again as a replacement to Captain Candela Greene. It was also found out she was carrying Juraan's child. As Candela, she tried to defame her character, as well as keep an eye of Starfleet intelligence. Fearing that the Captain was compromised, Rear Admiral Maxwell Gunn stripped her of command upon return to Starbase 140. It was later revealed that this was done on orders from Admiral Vanessa Lucifel to launch a covert plan that would place Commander Teshurr in the pirates lair. Nova, fearing they will find out that Lieutenant Eric Kramer, and herself were both spies, they fled on a runabout to the Denias system where Juraan rendezvous with them.

The Zentradi

Zentradi Gamma Clone, and Candela Greene.

It is believed that Nova was the first female like form the Zentradi ever saw. She also is said to be known to manipulate the Zentradi with her pheromones as easily as most other species. General Tru'al was so aroused by her, his had an obsession to created a Zentradi version of Candela Greene.

Juraan

Nova has an emotional, and openly obsessive relationship with Juraan. This obsession drives her hate of Candela Greene knowing every moment she lives, Juraan will always love her more. In 2388, it is believed she was impregnated by Juraan, and is carrying his future son.
