That is correct. Rod Roddy's Zombie, tell him what he's won.psych said:"Newtype" is something from the Mobile Suit Gundam (Universal Century) series. Something about mankind evolving new abilities through their time in outerspace, and makes them better space fighters.
Maybe that's why you should be paying attention when you're blasting 'em out of the sky ... then again, in WC/SO, the amount of enemies onscreen at any one time multiplied by a factor of about 20 ... dodge away from one to smack into another ...overmortal said:Eh, I think they just decided that getting RAMMED UP THE ASS by some fool that you didn't really see or have a chance to dodge got rather annoying, even though it didn't happen terribly often.
Either that, or the all-too-common situation where you'd be shooting the crap out of someone and suddenly realize that his engine was almost dead, and you had about .5 seconds to change vector or choke to death on his nozzles.
I'm pretty sure I explained that in the original post: in the first draft of the movie, the "Pilgrims" were called "Border Worlders". Instead of "Pilgrims" being better at navigating jump points, "Border Worlders" were. Blair was discriminated against because his parents were "Border Worlders" instead of "Pilgrims". Captain Sansky and Admiral Wilson were "Border Worlder" traitors instead of "Pilgrim" traitors. Gerald hated "Border Worlders" instead of "Pilgrims". Blair has a "Border Worlder" icon instead of a "Pilgrim" cross. Etc., etc.How different were these Border Wolders than those from the game?
Or kill people with his mental death ray..Shaggy said:I never got why people think the Pilgrim "power" was a rip off of the force. In the movie and Pilgrim Stars I always felt it was more like a Telekinesis type of capability, with a good sense of direction thrown in, rather than anything like the "Force". You don't see Blair using his mind to make people do what he wanted. .

The term Pilgrim has been applied to many things: radical terrorists, a legitimate political group, a religion... but in relation to jump drives, it ref errs to ancestors of those born with Space Syndrome Mutation. The altered brain of a Pilgrim allows him or her a greater conscious comprehension of Parallel Tonality -- the ability to contact "dead" dimensions. Two types of Pilgrims interest this study: Explorers and Navigators. Pilgrim Explorers have the ability to 'see' the subspace plane, and to understand the various gravitic effects and what they mean to FTL travel. Pilgrim Navigators can use their altered minds to 'see' the paths laid out by Explorers who had already charted jump points. As of the 28th century, there are no living Pilgrims.
Pilgrim 'powers' were confirmed by a defecting Pilgrim scientist at Mars University. Lang Tanaka published a 2641 report on Pilgrim powers, which was censured by the CIS, as it endagered the then-in-development NAVCOM A.I. project. The connection between Pilgrim powers and Parallel Tonality was proven by Karenne Kivakova, a graduate student at the Carpathian Protectorate University.
I didn't knew the original "Border Worlds" from the first script also had special powers.Bandit LOAF said:I'm pretty sure I explained that in the original post: in the first draft of the movie, the "Pilgrims" were called "Border Worlders".
