Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I like the Cirin planning behind the Milowka's layout so far. High marks for deviousness.

Sucks to be the crew who looses their quarters and rec areas afterwards, though, but, given the alternatives, it's not that bad.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I had this nasty thought about bridgers. The bridger warps out and in its place is something else right... Does that something else have to do something to be part of the exchange? If not imagine the confusion if the bridger warps in to replace the UTC capitol ships, suddenly looks like the UTC dec...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Well, the Scarborough 's point defense weapons have a blind spot dead aft. Granted, there is one of the heavier guns covering it, but fighters aren't easy targets. The Sirius and the other Darani ships may have most of their fighters out of immediate support range, but I'll bet that the UTC ships ha...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

?? Admiral Novosi isn't calling them pirates. She's calling them mercenaries. There is a substantial distinction between the two, both in the colloquial and the legal sense. The Commissar is doing a little bit of having one foot on both sides here. By fobbing the decision off on Novosi, if she makes...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Pirates? What are you talking about? They're legitimate mercenaries/privateers (granted, the Darani would probably kill them all or bury them in a hole somewhere never to be released if they could in order to keep their secrets). Well, the UTC fleet units present may or may not be able to defeat the...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

There's a similarity, mainly with the color scheme and style of undershirt, but the SF dress uniforms you refer to have gold trim (see here ). Different jacket, though. Star Trek may be one of David's major inspirations for uniform design, however. -- Even if Novosi is willing to not start something...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Well, in the Honorverse, the Solarian League did have the "most powerful" fleet, technically speaking, by virtue of its sheer size advantage - IIRC, the SLN has something on the order of 2.5-3k dreadnoughts/superdreadnoughts on active service with another 8-9k+ dreadnoughts/superdreadnoughts in moth...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I caught the Sparrow class carrier on my second glance. I may not be in the supporters club but I also remember the character Stardust as Kari's wing commander from chapter 2 page's 18 and 19. So far that is a known pilot and possibly the same Sparrow that was at White-Rim. The thing that has me lo...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Possibly a new kind of weapon. However, more likely, color of weapons may be an indicator of the tech base they're from or the relative power level of the weapon. Or, just artistic license/cinematic effect so that we, the readers/viewers can easily tell the difference between different people/ships ...
