Long Live the Confederation!
Yeah, there's lots of reasons why there's more than seven or eight pilots on a carrier... but for some reason it was popular to argue that there *weren't* a few years back. I'm not sure why.

Halcyon hints that this may be the first encounter with a Ralari by Confed. Or, at least, it can be interpreted that way. I would suppose that, looking at the data you brought back on the motha', he sized up the amount of force needed to deal with it and went with what he considered to be enough (or, possibly just more than enough) to "handle" it. I feel bad for the cats on that Ralari.
