Long Live the Confederation!
The belief was that Blair commited *treason* -- that he destroyed the Tiger's Claw himself. They just couldn't prove it, so they went for a lesser charge.
Thats something I always questioned . . . out on patrol in a hostile system without a wingman? Not real smart anyway BlairBandit LOAF said:Yup. And Blair was the first one on the scene -- everyone else arrived to find Blair and a blown up carrier.
Had to, how else would Colsen have had access to his flight recorder unless Jazz had transferred to the Tigers Claw?Bandit LOAF said:Blair and company (Angel, Iceman, etc.) landed on the Austin, which was also part of the strike on K'tithrak Mang.
Bandit LOAF said:Iceman wasn't dead -- he died flying off the Austin several months later.
And yeah, Blair was flying alone -- the WC1/2 Guide has a detailed description of the mission.
Klaitu said:Well, put the pieces together..
Tigers claw blown to bits, and Blair is the only survivor.. looks suspicious.
AdmiralHuang said:Hmmm.. six Dumbfires killing the Claw? Doesn't that seem a bit suspicious? Maybe they were REALLY BIG DFs...
How did blair go and get him then?
That's a really good point. Did Prophecy happen to mention where Iceman bought it? Anyone want to bother looking at the FMV? Too bad there's no script availible (that I know of).
But, if Iceman was transferred to the Austin, then why was he not mentioned in WC2 as a survivor?
If you can blow up the Tiger's Claw in WC1 with the two Dumbfires and three Heatseekers on a Scimitar, then six Dumbfires from three Strakhas should be able to do the same.
