Stick sailor engineer Jack on it and he's working on a?........ steam turbine that he thinks is the end product of nuclear.

Maybe more clearly stated "... steam turbine that he thinks has a nuclear reactor producing the steam." Yeah. And he'd be right!
He could very well be wrong as well.

Not in this case. Engineers on submarine crews need to be familiar with the major systems aboard (at least in the US Navy they do).

Yeah, much like yours, except your pretence of knowing what it all is based on stories.

Not new, no. It could have been around for a long time in terms of a cheap way to move mechanical vehicles, etc.
Just a simple and abundant fuel hidden behind something that is told to us as being super poisonous but highly efficient and clean as long as we are kept in the dark.


It doesn't make sense to me that subs can stay underwater for as long as food supplies last.... So, I don't believe it can happen
I don't.
I believe they can stay submerged for  a decent length of time as long as they extend a breather pipe from the CONning tower.


Nuclear Power is too dangerous, they would never put it on a vessel that is almost the length of 2 football fields... or a Surface ship that launches Jets from it has no exhaust and can travel faster than any other ship... and.... has a small cities worth of people on it...

That's right. No person in their right mind would mess with such stuff never mind put it on sub or ship.

You finally say outright that you're guessing. Thanks!

A major problem with your scenario is that if it were a conventional, say, fuel-oil fired boiler, why go through the nuclear rigmarole? To "fool" people into thinking the subs are nuclear while trying to manage a massive cover-up? Why not train the crew how to deal with contingencies with the boiler? Just to keep up an act? That's ridiculous. Where's the win?

Where would they store all the fuel needed for months at sea? Where would the air for combustion come from while submerged and under power for weeks or longer? Diesel submarines can't use their engines unless they are on the surface, or at least can put a snorkel to the surface; they run on battery power when fully submerged. For this reason they can stay submerged for only a limited time. They also have to be refueled regularly.

You still think that whatever is there instead of nuclear, itís being hidden from the crew, right?  How do you propose to hide a Walter Turbine setup from the crew?
The same as you hide what's behind supposed nuclear.
It's a simple scenario to be fair, because all it requires is people like you to back it all up by never knowing what the hell it is you're actually really championing.
So you have a crew that is maintaining a fake reactor.  Then you have another crew that is maintaining the real power source.  You have this for every reactor everywhere.  This seems incredibly inefficient.
And again a conspiracy involving thousands is unrealistic
Nope. You have a crew who believe they're operating a nuclear sub. That's it. It's just buttons and testing.
If anything goes wrong it's back to the yard where everyone is dispersed so the so called nuclear experts can repair the fault.
In that case you have to have a system that runs exactly like a nuclear reactor or the buttons and meters are meaningless.
Somebody still has to fuel it and actually service it.  Your conspiracy is too big to be reasonable.

You have still never described what force causes this stacking.  You have never given an adequate explaination for sunrise and set or how the sun stays the same apparent size throughout the day.

No. It isn't a simple scenario.
It requires the replacement of the reactor core with a completely different setup, it requires a massive storage of fuel.
It is nothing like nuclear power.

but you still have no clue what nuclear power actually is, only what you're told it is, which is basically nothing short of magic.
Any technology sufficiently advanced is indistinguishable from magic for ignorant fools.
Kind of like how it is "magic" to put a bit of vapour from some liquid into a cylinder and have it explode to power a car.

Just because you are too ignorant to understand it (and wilfully so) does not mean it is magic.

Nope. You have a crew who believe they're operating a nuclear sub. That's it. It's just buttons and testing.
If anything goes wrong it's back to the yard where everyone is dispersed so the so called nuclear experts can repair the fault.
No, it isn't just buttons and testing.
Lets say something has gone wrong, and all the HTP has leaked into the ship/out of its storage tanks and is starting to react violently. What do they do?
They have a complete loss of power and their ship has a violently reacting chemical.
That would be the loss of a ship.

What engine?
It's supposed to be a reactor boiling water and sending steam to a turbine.
So where's the engine?
The BS engine you want in there to replace the reactor.

I spent most of my life just accepting, so I'm well aware of how resistant you would be to ever thinking for yourself.
You seem to be confusing thinking for yourself with rejecting all knowledge which goes against your delusional world view.

You aren't thinking.

You still havenít shown us a way to hide the equipment you would need to use, if you wanted to fake a nuclear reactor.  It sounds simple if you know nothing about submarines or power generation, but once you learn a little about those youíll find itís not that simple.  Navy vessels look big; heck, an aircraft carrier doesnít just LOOK big, it really IS big.  Iím sure it appears to you that a vessel that size would have lots of places to hide things.  But thatís only because youíve never served on one, and because you wonít acknowledge the level of training and the amount of access the crew has.

RocketSauce raised a good point: fuel.
I was stationed on the USS Nassau (LHA-4)...We would do an "unrep" (underway replenishment) about every week if we were out to sea that long... This entails filling up the fuel tanks, bringing over food/mail/supplies...
Ships that arenít nuclear powered need to refuel A LOT.  Ships (and submarines) that are nuclear powered do not.  Nuclear powered ships do unreps, but much less often.  The Truxtun would unrep a small amount of JP-5 from time to time for the helicopter we carried, but not often enough or in quantity enough to power a fake reactor.  So if youíre going to fake a reactor, whateverís being used to accomplish that needs to all be on board from the beginning of a deployment.  Surface ships go weeks between port visits, submarines even longer.

The win is in the word, nuclear. It means they can place ridiculous price tags on such stuff as well as make up all kinds of scenarios with them to ensure the paying public dig deep in given scenarios of war and peace with the pretence of a need to protect  but also at a potential hazardous price if not fully looked after.

And blah blah blah.

It all depends on how you're made to believe what happens.
We can all be told many things about subs at sea or ships at sea not needing replenishment. However they all require food and drink and can easily take on other requirements, whatever that is in terms of a fuel....or more possible that they actually use the ocean to make their own with the necessary adages already plentiful, aboard.

I know I know, you're all certified nuclear know how's and know all's and super in the know, no hiding anything from you, super sailors.
I know, I know, it's only what :P they tell us :P, but:

USS Triton (SSRN-586)
USS Triton (SSRN/SSN-586), a United States Navy radar picket nuclear submarine, was the first vessel to execute a submerged circumnavigation of the Earth (Operation Sandblast), doing so in early 1960. Triton accomplished this objective during her shakedown cruise while under the command of Captain Edward L. "Ned" Beach, Jr. The only member of her class, she also had the distinction of being the only Western submarine powered by two nuclear reactors.
;D ;D Such stupid gullible people aren't we? ;D ;D

Nice speech but you still have no clue what nuclear power actually is, only what you're told it is, which is basically nothing short of magic.
Right, you live in a world full of magic because any technology sufficiently advanced is indistinguishable from magic.
It's only indistinguishable from magic because it's cloaked like magic tricks but shown to the audience as a reality.


This
"It's only indistinguishable from magic because it's cloaked like magic tricks but shown to the audience as a reality"
sounds like you're explaining your fictional denpressure and the mysterious magic mountain at the North Pole that your sun shines out from.

But, I simply cannot understand why you have a problem with radioactivity, nuclear fission and nuclear power.
What sort of a world do you live in that does not have any rudimentary idea of the make-up of an atom?

If you are game, read a bit on the discovery of radioactivity The Discovery of Radioactivity
Radioactivity is one thing and massive power output from pellets for decades is another.
