How TF would Rose know what a "snip-snip" is? The hand gestures don't add to the definition - pointing to his balls or the scissor motion. And... The reason he didn't know how to tell her is because he wasn't questioning/insulting her for once- brand new territory. v.redd.it/35f6z0zts8x41

Transcontinental states are countries located on more than one continent. While there are many countries with non-contiguous overseas territories fitting this definition, only a limited number of countries have territory straddling an overland continental boundary, most commonly Europe and Asia.

The Carolina Panthers had 8 of their 9 drives go into Green Bay territory. They only scored 3 of those 8 trips and only came up with 16 points. The definition of Bend dont Break defense by Green Bay.

In those 8 trips here's how they ended up.

Punt

TD

FG

Fumble

Punt

INT

TD

Stopped at the one yard line.

Panthers were able to move the ball well, but GB came up big and made plays when it mattered.

What is considered a solar system's "Territory"? Within the Terminal Shock, Heliopause or is there a better definition?

I am trying to put together a more realistic basis for space "owned", in a sense, by a star and its system for a novel.

CURRENT CONSENSUS:

Based on input from this reddit thread, I broke space volumes into categories based on equivalent seafaring terms that I believe may prove viable for the setting and plot of the book:

  • Open Space [International Waters]: The space between the stability regions of star systems not owned by the same group or groups.
  • Intersystem Space: The space between the stability regions of star systems owned by the same group or groups. (Owned Space)
  • Exclusive Economic Zone: The space between the stability region edge and the star itself. (Monitored Space)
  • Controlled Space [Contiguous Zone]: The space between the heliosphere and the star itself. (Patrolled Space)
  • Terminal Space [Territorial Waters]: The space within the terminal shock.
  • Absolute Territory [Essentially Land]: The space within the orbit of the furthest "significant body" and its corresponding gravity well within Terminal Space AND the space within any "significant body's" gravity well within the Controlled Space of that system.
  • Definition of "Significant Body": Categorized as a "planetoid" or larger mass OR a naturally created body that has a permanent "self-sufficient" habitat located upon its surface.

ORIGINAL INFO:

Option 1: Gravitational Limits Originally I thought about gravity extents but that doesn't work for some cases. Using our own system as an example, the "territory" would extend to where the Sun's gravitation pull is no longer relevant. If that is the case it could be up to or greater than a sphere 2.5 light years in radius. The nearest star is just over 4 ly away but say, as another example, that star had a pull that is greater than 4 ly. The "territory" would overlap which would not necessarily work out.

Option 2: Solar Shock Volume So the other options is material or radiation changes . So within the terminal shock or within the heliopause. These can be defined at any given time however depending on the solar activity and interaction with the galactic streams it could change quite a bit kind of like how Earth's magnetic fields change depending on how the solar wind and solar activity affects it.

Option 3: Orbiting Bodies Another thought was using the orbiting bodies as a baseline instead of the star. So either taking the distance to the furthest "significant" orbiting bo
