[HW官方原设]部分官方背景+翻译

[复制链接]
发表于 2010-7-3 12:20:44 | 显示全部楼层 |阅读模式
这是HW DUST WAR的早期官方原设。我所见过的原设中只有这个对先祖进行了完整而不冲突的设定。因此现在我把它们翻译了一下,放出来。
注意:这段历史是从一切的起源——先祖的内战到本图西人发现第一颗核心。
后面还有一些东西,但可以从HW2的官方历史 http://shipyards.relicnews.com/hw2/hiigaran_history.htm]中找到更完整的。
英文原文引自由HW的原设人员 Josh Mosqueira 所作的Background。
翻译是自己干的。技术有限,见谅。
开始。
————————————————————————————————————
During the Dark Age of the Progenitors, a great war was fought that ultimately destroyed the Progenitor civilization(s) [it is unsure whether the Progenitors were one race or many] and leaving countless ruins and derelicts scattered throughout the Galaxy.
So terrible was this war, that whole systems were destroyed, their suns extinguished by devastating weapons of mass destruction. Across the cosmos many stars flickers and then vanished, the last rays of the explosions drifting towards infinity their only legacy. To this day, evidence of these explosions remain, condemning whole tracts of space into virtual no-mans lands, littered only by the ancient wrecks of the progenitors ships — their secrets entombed forever by their silence.

在先祖(不确定”先祖”是一个或几个种族)的黑暗时代,先祖人在他们所在的银河展开了一场巨大的战争。战争波及了整个银河系,并在整个银河留下了散布于各处的数不尽的废墟与遗骸。
战争实在是太可怕了,以至于许多星系都被摧毁,星系的恒星被毁灭性的大规模杀伤武器所破坏。在整个宇宙中,许多星系的恒星在爆炸中闪耀开来,然后渐渐消失,而那些最后的爆炸火光,照耀着先祖人仅仅留下来的无尽的遗产。在这些日子里,这些爆炸的证据仍然存留着,似乎在谴责着那次将整个宇宙变成了仅仅散落着远古先祖船只遗骸的一片虚无的战争——先祖的秘密被掩埋在永久的寂静中。

But not all Progenitors wanted war. One, a visionary called Sajuuk, deiced to take his ship and hide among the dead stars of Balcora. Along the way, he abandoned his crew of over 1 million on desolate planets, far from the eyes of his warmongering brethrens. Many, Sajuuk knew, would perish, but others he hoped would survive and birth new civilizations. He then continued his long journey to Balcora, all the while being chased by other progenitors. Once in Balcora, he would wait until all that remained of his civilization was dust so that he could rebuild it. However, he new he would never live to see this day. Instead, he coded all his memories and knowledge, as well as all the secrets of the Progenitors, into the databanks of his ship. He then cast into the void the three hyperspace cores that powered his ship. His hope was that in time one or more of his seeded civilizations would find the cores, unravel the secrets of hyperspace travel and return to Balcora with them to reclaim their birth right — Sajuuk’s ship and the last surviving records of the Progenitors. With that, Sajuuk powered down the ship except for the automatons needed to repair and sustain the ship, and entered cryo-sleep.

但不是所有的先祖人都希望战争。一个有远见的先祖人,萨尤克,决定带着他的舰队离开这个银河,隐藏在巴科拉的黑洞群中。在旅途中,他在一些远离他的好战的同胞们的荒凉行星上留下了超过一百万船员。萨尤克知道,他们中的许多人会死亡,但是它希望能够有一些人生存下来,最终诞生新的文明。而后,他继续航向巴科拉,但他一路都被其它先祖人所追逐。一旦到达巴科拉,他便会等待到那些剩余的先祖文明都消失,这样他就可以重建先祖文明。然而,他知道他永远活不到那一天了。但是,他把他的所有记忆、知识与先祖的秘密输入了他的舰船的数据库。然后,他将三颗提供能量的超空间核心抛弃在宇宙空间中。他希望他在其它行星所留下的文明回找到那些核心,解开超空间旅行的秘密,并带着核心返回巴科拉来重新唤醒萨尤克的舰船与先祖留下的最后记录。做完这些,他关闭了在巴科拉中心失去动力的战舰”萨尤克”的全部系统——除了全船的维修系统和生命维持系统。而后,他进入了冷冻睡眠(cryo-sleep)。

The remaining progenitors searched for the traitor Sajuuk, but found nothing. Some were jealous that Sajuuk had the courage to turn his back on the war or felt betrayed by him while others wanted the ship he commanded. However, in time the war consumed all the progenitors. Not all Progenitors vanished. What happened was similar to the fall of the Roman Empire — no longer united the various colonies and planets become isolated. Some lost all ability (through war or otherwise) to use Progenitor tech while others simply vanished.
与此同时,残留的先祖人搜索着叛徒萨尤克的踪迹,但却什么也没有找到。有些先祖人认为萨尤克放弃战争很有勇气,也有些人感觉受到了背叛。更多的先祖人渴求萨尤克所指挥的舰船。然而,战争消耗着所有先祖文明。先祖的衰败就像罗马帝国的衰亡一样——众多的行星与殖民地不再团结,而是相互孤立起来。有些先祖势力在战争中失去了全部的科技,也有的先祖科技在战争中渐渐被人们遗忘。

Millennia passed and the Progenitors faded from history, then legend and finally myth all the while the three cores that Sajuuk jettisoned drifted in the void.
数万年后,先祖已经从历史中完全消退。萨尤克与他在宇宙中留下的三颗核心也由历史渐渐成为了传说,最终演变为一段神话。

The Bentusi where the first to find one of the cores, and in doing so ushered the First Time. Already one of the most advanced Fledging Races, the Bentusi quickly unlocked most of their Core’s secrets and used them to bring hyperspace to the galaxy. The Bentusi founded the Old Trade Routes with the knowledge gained from the core and taught Short Jumping to the races they encountered.
本图西人是第一个找到一颗核心的种族。核心的发现迎来了“太初之时”。作为当时HW银河中最先进的早期种族之一,本图西人很快地解开了他们核心中的大多数秘密,并且依靠着那些将超空间技术带入了整个银河。带着从核心中获取的知识与科技,本图西人创建了旧贸易路线(基本上就是星系外环线[Outer Rim Route])并教会了他们遇到的许多种族如何进行短程超空间跳跃。

这部分大概是不会引起什么争议的官方早期原设了。

一旦到达巴科拉,他便会等待到那些剩余的先祖文明都消失,这样他就可以重建先祖文明。

萨尤克不可能一直活下去。
他所留下的那些船员即使可以生存下来并且再度找到他,也要花费非常长的时间。他活不了那么长。

继续发。下面发的是HW系列最早的原设之一——标注日期为1999.11.16的一份早期文件的一部分(SINGLE PLAYER GAME STORY OUTLINE DOCUMENT)。
其中包含了对整个DUSTWAR剧本的设计。但是由于那个剧情被抛弃,暂且不翻译那一部分。
更有价值的资料是其中记载的TERMS AND DEFINITIONS(关系[?]与定义)。
注:其中有很多不为人知的东西。为了避免一下子让所有人都不明白,我决定慢慢地发。我自己也得慢慢地弄清楚其中的关系。
以上。


Dust Wars  
1000 year long war between the Hiigaran Empire and an empire that is formed by a section of the previous Taiidan Empire that refused to recognize the new Kharakid claim to the throne and succeeded to form a breakaway empire.

星尘之战
希格拉帝国与一个由曾经的泰坦帝国的一部分拒绝承认卡拉克人所继承的希格拉帝国的人们成功分离出来的一个帝国之间的长达1000年的战争。(我知道这比较绕..)

Hyperspace(ing)  
Also known as warping or jumping, hyperspacing is a process based upon advanced physics whereby matter in one location (usually a space faring vessel) is transported to another location in space while bypassing the normal temporal restrictions relativity places upon doing so. The practical application of hyperspace technology is as the only known means of faster than light travel between stars. Only two methods of doing so are currently available; wild warping using a warp core, or usage of the extensive gate system.

超空间跳跃
也被称作”warping”或”jumping”(就是超空间跳跃的不同的英文说法),超空间跳跃是一个基于高等物理学的过程——在一个位置(通常是一艘飞船)被传送到空间中的另一个位置而不受到时空的限制也不经过正常空间。超空间技术的实际应用是作为唯一的一种能够以超光速在星空中穿梭的手段。超空间跳跃只能通过现有的两种方法进行:使用跳跃核心进行Wild Warping(后面会解释)或者使用大规模的跳跃门系统。
[译者注:这里没有提到模块。不过超空间模块的使用与核心是同一种类型。]

Warp Core  
A device that, given the requisite large amount of energy, is capable of inducing the hyperspace reaction. Such devices form the drives of wild warping interstellar vessels. Note that few civilizations actually possess the ability to fabricate warp cores and few of those know how they work (The Bentusi, and T-Mat). Most civilizations that possess the technology have actual mastered the process of reverse engineering and replicating someone else’s designs, while not fully understanding how they work. For example, the Hiigarans who have replicated the warp core found in the Khar-Thoba wreckage on Kharak, are completely ignorant of their cores origins.

超空间核心(跳跃核心)
一个被注入了必要的庞大能量的、可以诱导超空间反应(注:就是指跳跃)的设备。这样的设备组成了宇航飞船的Wild Warping引擎。注意,几乎没有文明真正掌握了制造超空间核心的能力,也几乎没有文明知道它们是如何工作的(除了本图西人和T-mat)。大多数的”掌握”了这个技术的文明事实上仅仅掌握了对核心的逆向工程的工序并且复制了其它人的设计(注:这指超空间模块,“其它人”指最早发现核心的本图西人。本图西人给予了其它种族使用模块进行超空间跳跃的能力。)而不是完全地明白核心是如何工作的。例如,复制了从卡拉克上的卡托巴残骸中找到的超空间核心的希格拉人实际上完全不知道他们核心的起源。(注:后来希格拉人还是知道了。这里指希格拉人暂时还不能完全破解核心的秘密,仅仅能模仿着制作出超空间模块。)

Wild Warping
The process by which, through the use of a warp core, large amounts of energy (usually transmuted matter) are channeled to induce hyperspace. Thus, given the requisite large amounts of matter, a ship or collection of ships can me transported almost anywhere. However, the amounts of energy needed necessitate a prohibitively large amount of matter such that few cultures, even if they did possess the technology, could afford the resources expenditure. Additionally, wild warping is fraught with dangers posed by natural phenomenon, particularly large gravitational fields. Few civilizations have are advanced enough to adequately use the process for anything longer than local area travel.

Wild Warping
Wild Warping是通过使用一个超空间核心,引导大量的能量(通常是由物质转化来的[注:这里指消耗物质,类似用模块跳跃要消耗RU])来诱导超空间活动(进入超空间)的过程。以这样的方式,只要被注入了必要的物质[注:这些物质而后被转化为供跳跃的能量],一艘或许多船只便可以被传送至几乎任何地方。然而,跳跃所需的能量需要过多的物质来支持,以至于几乎没有文明,即使是那些已经掌握了这个技术的文明,可以承担得起这么大的资源消耗。此外,Wild Warping充满了由自然现象导致的危险——特别是庞大的重力场。几乎没有文明足够先进到能够充分地使用这个程序来进行远与局部旅行的跳跃。
[注:Knights使用过Wild Warping。Knights会在后面解释。]

从那个pdf档后面的内容来看,hiigara empire是泰坦人和回归的库申人在原泰坦帝国中心区建立的新帝国,那段很绕的东西是旧帝国贵族们建立的割据政权

Higaran Empire位于整个星系的中心,沿旋臂从巴科拉外沿弧线分布,还有一些势力范围在这个圈的上侧。

看Taiidan Consulate一节中的内容,应该是库申人成功上位,拉了一部分泰坦人搞H帝国,而边远地区的泰坦贵族不买账,自立门户造反,结果这帮内斗不断的叛党愣是叫H帝国剿了1K年还没搞定……
另外THE HOMEWORLD UNIVERSE那张图的时间跟这个背景有冲突吧,那图上说了,画得是回归后127年的状态

早期原设和后来的图有冲突也不奇怪呢。毕竟这是最早的原设。
但是对先祖的设定基本不冲突。

这么看来,整个家园游戏的最终重点就是先祖文明的探索了。

呃..这么说吧。至少HW2还没交待完。

说实话,对于虚拟、未知的东西产生疑问完全是意淫,不过这大概就是科学发展的动力吧,基于以上观点,提出以下几个伪命题:
    1 以先祖的科技完全可以无性繁殖。为什么死啦死啦的?
    2 本图西以科技换取的资源都做什么了,搞战略储备?
    3 本图西人为什么不是融合三颗核心的人,他们有这方面的情报,也有这方面的实力.
      4 行星轰炸平台的技术应该是源于本图西,既然他们不好战,完全不必出售这种残忍的武器,又为何出售给H的对手,好像没提到有其他种族购买,其居心何在?
    5 关于大起义,本图西可以逐个消灭,只要不承认占领是合法的,难道真的是迫使理事会的诞生?
      以上全是YY
