I was just browsing through the Wiki and read about the Pilgrim war when I noticed that the Pilgrim war ending was basicly right before the Kilrathi war started. Is that right? Pilgrim war 2631 - 2634 Kilrathi war 2634 - 2669 Would that also be a reason why Confed wouldn't have done anything about the Kilrathi raiders in 5 years before the "Anna Magdalena" massacre? Also what do you think, would Confed have declared war at the time of the massacre even if the Pilgrim war wasn't over? How much longer would Confed had let the Kilrathi go unpunished. I find that kinda interesting. Reminds me of another question...the first Bengals where build before the Pilgrim war as ultility carriers. First what exactly do we understand under a utility carrier in the WC Universe? A ship mostly dedicated to carrie groundforces with a bit of fighter support? Also what ships where build as MK1 carriers and what carriers where from the second run? TCS Bengal -> utility carrier TCS Tigers Claw -> 2nd TCS Kipling -> 2nd TCS Wolfhound -> 2nd That is what I think/know. What about the others? Also where the old ones later also converted/refitted or where they just decomissioned?
