Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I think the point is that she is not used to that aspect of flying, ie keeping the nose towards the target while actually moving a different direction. I get the impression that the lateral thrusters are not designed to allow that really for larger ships. Might have something to do with the squishy ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The Niobe is a rusty worn out bucket we all love, but Scar is definitely doing her best to impress us all.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Yay, more explosions! It does appear now to be some sort of relay. Whether it is near Farhaven or a Darani world as a feint/distraction we will have to wait and see.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

You know, I really do not ever recall ever seeing a shot showing the underside of Niobe. At least off hand any shot I remember seeing never showed the belly.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I actually do not think this is a station. I instantly thought Souri Behemoth when I saw it. So I guess we will find out who is correct. I still like it though.

Re: Niobe ship layout

While you are correct the flaws also reflect the origin of Niobe. It was originally designed as a yacht of sorts and was later converted into a privateer. The placement of turrets at teh time of conversion might habe been restricted due to power contraints or structural design. It is also notable th...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I think "attracted' is too passive a term for Mensk. To me it sounds like he "made" enemies at every turn, even his own crew at the end.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Need a fighter, of course not. Could it use a fighter, the same as Niobe, it is a handy unexpected asset. In my opinion if engineering goes down in a catastrophic way on a spaceship the ship and crew are basically screwed. Like Hal said previously they did not have more than a few hours till they wo...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I am guessing it opens to the full ring size for freighters. It would certainly allow a much bigger size of crate and the large open space would likely be a rail system to facilitate moving it around the ring of the station.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

And they use the one bait that could actually convince him. Not good the new ship, they get possession of it and now it is going to get shot full of holes already. Well at least it is going to get some serious character development out of this *wink*.
