    the Kroll process of refining titanium wasn’t perfected until 1940

    Yes, John Gates as the “Terminator “ is a bit farfetched, isn’t it?

    What is the difference? I never thought about it. To me both were always the same.

    Thanks again, Captain!

    Hm, I still have a problem with the story, I am absolutely not happy with the credibility.
    When some month before the outbreak of WW I the German foreign minister would have been abducted in England by the sinister SIS who wanted to interrogate him, the German ambassador in London immediately would have asked questions himself. No German foreign minister, American secretary of foreign affairs or British secretary of state of foreign affairs get’s lost without anyone noticing it! Even if he travels all alone! Ha!
    If the ambassador would have received no answer or no sufficient answer, the result would have been that within 36 hours a German battleship would have been anchoring in Lord Granville’s Koi pond, with all her guns pointing at Devonton Abbey. A marine would have been knocking at the front door with the butt of his Mauser k 98. After the door was opened – one way or another – an officer would have been demanding! an explanation for the disappearance of von Jagow.
    Sorry, this was an attempt on parody from my side!
    What I was going to say was, that after the abduction of von Jagow it would have taken less than 3 days before war would have been declared by the Germans.
    But maybe this is the intention of the true warmongers, Gates and his SIS scallywags. Von Jagow mentioned that Gates fought in South Africa in the Boer war. Always there were the trouble is, isn’t he, our fine John Gates? And if there is no trouble, then he will produce it himself, together with his villains.

    One more thing: In the Boer war the English invented the terrible concentration camps. I wonder how far Gates was involved …

    Everybody, this is a parody of Downton Abbey. It is fiction in the best Victorian and Jules Verne’s novel styles (with a lot of Ian Fleming). So please, just imagine the Titanium process was secretly developed by the British Intelligence years before it happens and enjoy the parody ….

    I absolutely agree with you! You don’t know how much I enjoy this parody! There is nothing better than an author who leaves her flanks wide open to … comment :).

    Wooo Hoooo! You tell him Mr. Bates! I like this much better than the scary brace that was making him so sick in Downton Abbey.

    I know that this is a parody with a bit of steampunk mixed in, but I am one who is hung upon the mechanics of things. Agent Gates leg is not only made of titanium , a very strong, light metal, but must be steam powered as well. What sort of power source are they using to heat the water to power the leg, and how do they hide the heat and steam that such a device must be producing?

    @Zyreenesque

    According to Wikipedia on the Kroll process: “Many methods have been applied to the production of titanium metal, beginning with a report in 1887 by Nilsen and Pettersen using sodium, which was optimized into the commercial Hunter process. … The Kroll process displaced the Hunter process and continues to be the dominant technology for the production of titanium metal, as well as driving the majority of the world’s production of magnesium metal.”

    Parallels Max Smart, 99, and the Chief having to break up a meeting on the Moon before Apollo 11 got there.
