Haesslich, 1) Ok, so the Kilrathi destroy all the intelligence information on the ship. That's fine, there'll be other things to salvage like the rest of the ship such as its engines, armor, weapons, etc. 3) The word war means conflict, period. If two masses of people have a conflict of words, they're having a war. 4) I didn't think the tractor beam would be capable of towing a fighter. The only problem with leech guns is that Confed didn't have them in the Kilrathi War. Perhaps in new WC games that should change. The thing to do is to not get killed but to capture every prisoner, capship, and fighter in the game. 5) Capturing ships gains everything that Joshua & I listed. 6) Honestly, I doubt that most Kilrathi would've cared to have followed the will of the Emperor & committed suicide. Each Kilrathi has a distinct and different personality and is not a mindless following robot. Many Kilrathi have family they'd probably want to go home to see. In Wing Commander Heart of the Tiger, the Emperor states to Thrakhath how that many Kilrathi families weren't buying the "die with honor in battle" stuff - they were on the brink of rebellion.
