If the axe can be used for other survival purposes i.e. cutting wood it might be a good choice . But just as a Tomahawk ; not me . If you throw it you are out a weapon until recovered . Where as ; I have seen instruction manuals and training films for combat shovels as close combat weapons and they look very effective .

Hmm I see, combat shovels it is then, through I wanted the cold steel gun stock warclub too, but it's too much of a dedicated close combat weapon /._\\

I have to find a way to transmit information instantaneously from one end of the universe to the other, while keeping it semi-unique and *new*. 

Why? 

Because I'm a writer. Yay \o/.

Well, the problem here is that, physically speaking, nothing discovered can travel faster than light, so getting across the universe will take a while. However, I have thought of something for you, loosely-based on the Warp Drive from Star Trek (the most realistic FTL system there is in fiction so-far other than wormholes):

 

Two-stage FTL communications:

First, a large and extremely dense canister (necessary to generate a curve in space-time) is shot from a cannon mounted on the ship, which contains some sort of warp-field generator. As it departs, you send a regular radio or microwave transmission, which travels at the speed of light, c. However, it is traveling at c in the warp field provided by an object that's moving faster than c (because it is changing the distance)! This way, the signal actually moves much faster than c, so that you can have semi-instantaneous communications. The only problem would be dodging the canister on the receiving end, but that could be mitigated with a pre-programmed self-destruct.

I'm thinking more quantum physics. Kinda what Card did for his Ender's Game books.

Well, in that case, you can use Tachyon radios.

So pretty much anything goes in this thread then? Cool. (I'm somewhat new here.)

 

Maybe I should turn my imagination back on full time, it can be a pretty scary place sometimes.

 

Anyway, Its a little late, but here is what Kylo Ren's light-saber really should have looked like. (I find that I seem to hover a minimum of 2-3 years behind everyone else pop culture wise. It took me until 2015 to learn about rick rolling.)

As an avid sci-fi reader coming up with a truly new way for FTL communications is a hard thing to come up with . If you want to use other authors methods ; well there are quite a plethora of them .

Dirac (space or dimension) ; wormholes and/or black holes ; so called sub-space and/or space - /space + ; Hyper space and as you mention the one in Ender's Game for long range .

 Short range pulsed gravity waves is the only one I can think of off hand (reading to much Honorverse from David Weber lol) .

:honoring:
