This is the dog's knees - change and motion! The "re-set for every episode" button lets down many otherwise good SF shows and serials, it's great to see that nothing is sacred in CD. As for the Scar, I don't really see that the Cirin military would want it - even though they have a penchant for using converted civilian ships, it's probably far too expensive to maintain and likely to be temperamental like any top-of-the-line custom job. Though if I were them I would give it a thorough going over before handing it to the Niobids (Scaroids? Sounds painfuil), perhaps minus a few turrets. The heroes, now ... well, how do you think Blakes 7 would have felt if they'd lost Scorpio but managed to "liberate" the Liberator instead ... ? 8-)

Is that a point defence turret under the tail, in the stern-chaser position?

I would have loved for Star Trek Voyager to have not employed the re-set button as much as they did. The reason I enjoyed the Year of Hell two-parter so much is that it felt how I was expected an ongoing series about a Federation Starship trapped so far away from home would, well a series compressed down into an hour and a half.

"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 too many doors open for people to steal a ship and then claim it as salvage somewhere else.

I'm curious how the Space Traffic Registry would be handled between different spheres of political influence, as well? Does a ship need to be registered with all the various alliances and factions? Or will this only be "legal" in Alliance territory?

I've found myself pondering a different question, and I apologize if this has already been debated here but I searched and couldn't find any previous posts about it so here goes: Anybody have any idea why the Republic was treating Sarah the way they were? They treated her like she was a spy or a criminal and it really makes little sense to me. Especially since by doing so they've now made themselves a very powerful enemy.

think the reason was the couse is that station security failed at preventing the att at the station even though they where warned
its might have been better pr wise saying that she was dead hurt so there could not be a questioning showing that she warned for it and it still happen further embarrassing the republic then it just being a attack that nothing could be done about it

This isn't a full explanation, and I grazed right over it without thinking the first time I'd read it: http://www.davidcsimon.com/crimsondark/ ... rip_id=189

Under more "normal" circumstances I doubt that newly-minted admiral Novosi would be so willing to bend the rules for the Niobids, but she's clearly not happy with all of the stunts her predecessor pulled. At this point it looks like the Scarborough will be their new ship.

It's a piece of high-end military hardware belonging to their enemy at war; wouldn't the Alliance be justified in impounding it for reverse engineering or covert missions? I hope not, but if realism is the rule of the day...
It's a commercially available model, used by several governments. I imagine the CDF could get their hands on one legitimately without too much trouble.

Looking at the recent wallpaper in the supporters' club, I think I see a place on the Scarborough's underside that could possibly be an aft-facing cargo bay big enough to fit the Scimitar.
Some pithy statement goes here.
