But isn't that 3 stingray meshes combined? Not one big Stingray?
IIRC, when you first encounter the Stingray cluster, you see an in-game cutscene showing three Stingrays coming together. I think if you look carefully, you can see the subtle change from three separate fighters to a single cluster model.
I'm not sure how clear this is, but the Secret Ops fiction first mentions those three gate openings, which I am sure is where Star*Soldier took that story from. Therefore, this should take precedence over any information in Privateer On-Line.However, the Star*Soldier timeline also lists the three new gate openings as occuring in 2681...
Obviously, Star*Soldier has been published and then POL2 fiction document has not - does this mean we should ignore the information in POL2 where it contradicts existing sources?
