EMPs Vs Being Stunned

By on October 16, 2017

Some reading buddies have asked me why EMPs are a huge concern for cyborgs and being stunned isn’t. Cyborgs have always known they were susceptible to being stunned. Why weren’t they worried about that weakness?

Being Stunned

The stun function on guns affects the organic side of cyborgs. They can’t move but they can still transmit, still communicate with their brethren, still monitor their surroundings. To stun a cyborg, the enemy has to shoot the warrior. Cyborgs move quickly, too quickly for many humans to shoot.

Could the Humanoid Alliance design a weapon that stuns all beings situated in a space? Sure. But, as humans and humanoids are organic, they would likely stun themselves also. That’s not optimal. (grins)


An EMP (electromagnetic pulse) affects the machine side of cyborgs. They can’t move and they also can’t transmit or monitor their surroundings (other than with their mostly organic auditory system). As an EMP is a pulse, it can cover a large area and it won’t affect humans or humanoids (though it could knock out their weapons or ships).

A couple of reading buddies questioned if it would be possible to extend an EMP’s range to cover the entire universe. I don’t know if that is possible or what the affects would be, but the Humanoid Alliance has ships positioned throughout the universe. All they would need to do is have a coordinated EMP blast for coverage.

If you ever have any questions about any of my stories or…well…anything, please contact me. I love these types of discussions!

Seeking Vector

A cyborg with a secret… A female seeking the truth…

Vector, the C Model captain of the Freedom, is a cyborg many warriors wish to emulate. He fights fiercely, leads with honor, has earned the respect and loyalty of his crew. But no being, not even a cyborg, is perfect. Since arriving at the Homeland, Vector has been hiding a dark truth about his past. If his secret is exposed, he could lose everything – his position, his ship, and his life.

Kasia excels at uncovering secrets. Half a lifespan ago, her curiosity placed her on the Humanoid Alliance’s kill list. Now she has accessed information the cyborg council would prefer remain hidden. Their warriors are hunting her and won’t rest until she’s dead.

When Vector arrives on her battle station, all grim determination, gray skin, and bulging muscles, Kasia knows he has been sent to kill her. That doesn’t stop her from wanting the dominant cyborg. She senses the savage nature under the male’s controlled exterior, sees the mysteries in his brilliant blue eyes, craves the roughness of his touch. She will risk all she has to experience his embrace.

Kasia braved the cyborg council’s ire for a reason. If she doesn’t convince Vector to act on the information she uncovered, the enemy could destroy his home planet and render every cyborg in the universe immobile.

Can a doubting C Model warrior learn to trust and to love before it is too late?

Seeking Vector is Book 10 in the Cyborg Sizzle series and is a STAND-ALONE story.
It is also a Cyborg SciFi Romance.
