Okay, the Terran Confederation is supposed to have this strict military or whatever, but you'd think they'd have better salutes. Have you taken a look at some in the last three Wing Commander games? Boy, they suck!
Doing the bull dance. Feeling the flow.
TC: I'm really trying not to make a smart ass remark abou what you said.
Yes they are a little informal and that can be understood during tmes of war when your thoughts are more focused on staying alive rather than impressing the brass. The quote Penguin wrote pretty much says that. Another way to look at it is WC is just a game and the people in the game are just actors. Maybe if Cris Roberts and company thought that it was a real issue they would have tryed to make things more true to real life in the military. Of course this is just my view on things.
Did you know that salutes came about in Medieval times when Knights used to raise the faceplate on their helmets to show that they meant no hostility...a useless bit of knowledge that I felt like telling you
'For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky'.
