That's Niobe. We haven't seen her since the Cirins confiscated her... *checks archive* ... 15 chapters ago. It's been a long time. I guess she got sold off and converted into Rush's campaign bus?

(Niobe is a custom job, IIRC, so we know it's actually Niobe and not just a ship of the same class.)

I knew it. "sold for scrap" didn't mean "actually scrapped."

I'd call it a good omen.

Did Niobe get an art update? Her bridge layout is roughly the same, but all the details look different. Or is she supposed to look different because she's been refitted or something?

More will be explained in future pages, but I just wanted to clear up now that this isn't Niobe. It's another Tantalus-class Luxury Yacht. The differences in appearance are because this is a much newer production model.

Sorry folks, Niobe really was scrapped.

It'd of been much cooler if it actually WAS Niobe. :P

Did you at least get to keep the dash decal? Or the knob from the gearstick? I still have my gearstick knob from my first student car now sadly wrecked but there is a strange memory still attached to the knob (four gears forward, one gear back ...) :mrgreen:

See, if I were Larissa I would have said over the com, "Hey dickheads I'm outta here, there's a ship waiting for me. You can't stop me." They board the now empty ship, Larissa undocks and steals the ship, leaving her father and company stuck aboard a badly damaged Wraith. If memory serves, it STILL has a corpse (Novosi) on it... try explaining THAT to anyone who "drops by" to help...

Problem with that approach is it leaves Larissa's husband Vaegyr vulnerable to retaliation. They still don't know where he's being held, only her father does, and maybe the assistant. Hence our plucky crew essentially taking him captive, to presumably have a "chat" with him.

I am back from a vacation and boy... this is going to be interesting :)

Even if this is not the old Niobe, it may be renamed to Niobe soon if they manage to take over the ship :)
