Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I'm satisfied with the current knotty problem of "we are facing two space fleets, each of which alone is a match for us." Save the twist for getting our doomed fleet out of here alive. Plus we have the smaller sub-problems of "Kari's past has been exposed on live radio" and "our mercenary fleet has ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

So, we have a nice little moral dilemma. Save the refugees, or save the fleet? Also, when are we going to actually see the "mercenary fleet"? Is it a massive Syndicate armada that will turn the tide? Is it a ragtag band of misfits who can barely scratch the paint on a Peacekeeper? We know that the S...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

btw. what "mercenary fleet " is she refering to? I had to reread it to find out, but apparently the main characters are part of a larger mercenary fleet. Vaegyr mentions it in his big "mission briefing" speech. It's very odd, though, as they've had no contact with any other mercenaries. "Fleet" imp...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The UTC ships are vertically oriented? They must have a lot of stairs and elevators. Or maybe "up" is sideways in those ships and they just like to mess with everyone.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Of course, now that you've described the plan in exacting detail, something has to go horribly horribly wrong. My money is that the HK net turns out to be far deadlier than we expected. It would fit with the Republic's pattern of using scary AIs for all their dirty work.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Okay, I've been wondering this for a while, now. Why the heck would you ever want to use the cruise configuration? Why would you want to not be able to jump out at a moment's notice? The only thing I can think of is to present a smaller target, but the same surface area's still there, just in a diff...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The Darani Republic has a Commodore rank (they used to take orders from Commodore Pearson). It's possible that the Cirin ranks are different, though.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

We have 2 similar shots of Niobe and the Scar , so we can compare scale. It looks like they're about the same length, but Scarborough has only a single hull to Niobe's 2, and I doubt it was built for hauling cargo, since it was Mensk's private ship. You could probably fit the Scimitar in, but not mu...

Re: Regarding FTL in the World of Crimson Dark

I took a look through the ships and tried to come up with some Fanon for why they have stabilizers the way they do. There's some general themes in the design of each ship. Military ships tend to have short stubby stabilizers (the Horizon is a good example, and the Castellan and Gerushda hardly have ...
