Probably gave it to their ONI/BuShips to take apart, see if there was anything good on it (like Darani communication/IFF codes). Then, either recycled it or sold it.Lokekar Kra wrote:By the time they get back the Niobe might already be scrapped...
They probably already scrapped the scimitar or lumped it with the other scimitars they collect after battles. Could be a resale market for that one since many governments use the scimitar as a fighter and it is in working condition and the alliance seem like the practical sort to me.
Though, I suppose they could be planning to assemble a squadron of them for a covert ops mission.
Actually, I'd doubt that they pick up many intact Scimitars (or other fighters) after battles, mainly because if it was still in working condition, it probably returned to a Darani flight deck, and it it wasn't, it's probably because it's shot to pieces and not worth picking up.
@Wingsofwrath - Nice catch.
