Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Interstellar bulk trade must still be prohibitively expensive. I can never see a situation where it would be practical to boost grain or automobiles or heavy machinery into orbit and ship them between systems rather than growing or manufacturing what is needed locally. The only caveat to that is shi...

What's in the purple bit between the quarters and the dining room?

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

"Space Traffic Registary"? I assume "Registry" was the word being gone for. Hate to be the Spelling Police, but I notice stuff like that. And what about the Scimitar in Niobe's belly? And while I like the Scarborough, I can't believe any salvage law would apply to stolen property...that would leave ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

IMPOUND TIME! The Scarborough is going to HAVE to be seized by the Navy. It only makes sense...unless the Niobids try to pull some "Salvage Law" bull... But I don't think you can legally salvage something you stole in the first place. In addition they were on a (admittedly an unsanctioned) clandesti...

TRON: Legacy

I found it incredibly disappointing, though David can't stop singing its praises.

What did you think?

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Very good points everyone. When they return in the Scar though, I can definitely see the Navy impounding that ship for exactly those reasons. I'm sure Whisper will glean what she can before they hand it over, but think about it: The personal effects of Mensk are there, including whatever the equival...

One minute you maintain Mensk was no threat, the next you say he was... :?:  Getting rid of a deadly enemy, with whom one could never trust any deal would stick, seems to me an eminently level-headed action. No threat as in no IMMEDIATE threat. As in he wasn't going to pull out a gun and start blas...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

So many answers in so few panels... :D I wonder if Mr. Simon reads these forums? So, new top-of-the-line ship, hopefully Sapphira off their backs, and we know Larissa knows what weregild means. No one gets shot. No new crew members, and the vacuum will swallow the evidence. And on the pessimistic si...
