    Heh, the Amy's at the Arboretum? Really? Anyway, I live in ATX these days, so lemme know what y'all are up to. Would love to meet up for lunch or something.

    Thrakkath and Revenge

    There's probably a realization on Thraky's part that his father gambled big, and basically lost and deserved what he got. That said, the main reason his gamble failed was Blair, hence Blair's the center of his vengeance. From a cultural standpoint the Kilrathi are probably used to executions...

    KIS Hha'ifra

    Doesn't necessarily have to be a torpedo either...I mean the Kilrathi sure were fond of ramming things.

    New Fighter Conjecture

    The distinction between the TCSF/TCN seem to be fairly haphazard because it always seems you're TCSF in the games but pilots tend to be TCN in other material (movie, novels). I don't think there's any quick or easy way to separate fighters between the two, because you do see many being used...

    New Fighter Conjecture

    Karnes was the only one who had the sabre shaped thing, I think. I suppose it's possible they were just fighters they ran away in, though deserting with high grade military hardware in it of itself sounds a bit of a stretch. The YA-18s at least had the excuse that it was the entire ship that...

    New Fighter Conjecture

    I find it unlikely for two reasons. Again the variant designators. The F-57A is the mainline heavy fighter used aboard Concordia in 2666, and the F-57B is a brand-new variant used in 2667 and first deployed aboard the Wake-CVEs. It seems a stretch that a fighter can go without a major...

    New Fighter Conjecture

    Well, there's a fairly recent thread on some entry dates and service lengths: Here. But I guess the discussion died out somewhere along the line. Phantom intro should be 2669, it's listed as new in Armada. Not quite sure why Sabre's...

    Fighter Introduction Dates

    A quick reply. I did adjust the service entry dates for the Gladius and Raptor a bit further back to match the Broadsword. Slightly puzzling on that respect is that there's no major "attack" role craft between the Broadsword and the...

    Fighter Designations

    You're correct. That's a typo on my part. sorry. Bearcat can be assumed to be F-104. Happy?

    Fighter Designations Rough service charts are here, I've been on vacation and haven't really been able to update them to account for Star*Soldier. Note that there's a rough correspondence between the fighter service dates and their designators. the only real...

    Diplomatic Immunity

    In theory the general can be prosecuted under the nexus of the concept of a "universal crime" which has no jurisdictional limitations based on territorial sovereignty. "Diplomatic Immunity" as its defined by the Vienna Conventions refers primarily to legal and civil infractions committed within...

    Fighter Introduction Dates

    Oh as for that... Two main reasons. The first is as LOAF suggested there's some ambiguity as to whether or not the WCA ships were really Sabres or Epees, though granted their silhouettes are close enough to be the assumed homages, but for the sake of this timeline, I figured it wouldn't...

    Fighter Introduction Dates

    I pushed the "2680" date fighters back to 2685 as a range between 2680 - 2685 as their gradual phase out, rather than all of them being retired at once.
