Wow-- my story serving as a springboard for this type of conversation.

Earthworm:
" IFF transponder reads him as the Karga, Lord Captain," the Communications Officer reported. " Imperial carrier of the Bhantkara class..."

I guess you're right. I didn't know the Bhanktara was a supercarrier-- you learn something new everyday.

Technicly it would depend on the situationl. But if a book that came out in 94 would say that Blair was a master in step dancing, that he posed in Playboy at age 10, and that he played the main character in a cheap remake of that 20th century classic Star Wars, because of the unnatural resemblance to the main character, and than a book from 98 said that was all BS because Chris Blair was a model Confederation officer, the older book would be right.

D5, technicly there is no such thing as a supper carrier. It seems the writers exagurated a little, the Bhantkara is a heavy carrier.

Supper carrier?

Not really. Melek in WC 4 is more detailed, but there are no major changes. He's still just as furry as before. And in both cases, the Kilrathi still look like they did in WC 1 and 2, though again with less detail. Even the Academy cartoon had the Kilrathi look just like they did in the games. So only the movie stands out.

I'm a bit sceptical about how they did that, too. But anyway, it has been said that the ships in WC3 were actually all rather ancient, with a quick upgrade to bring them up to par. And the Victory was quite old too. As for the Kilrathi, the total change is understandable, since they'd the advantage, and their fleet was damaged enough to call for total change.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>You're forgeting that we never saw Blairs court martial. The talk between Blair and Tolwyn in the WC2 intro was basicly to let us know about Blairs next *assignment*.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
No, we didn't. But we read about it.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>We're never told in WC3 that Skippers or a previous model of a Skipper didn't exist before.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Neither a capship missile nor a torpedo is bigger than a fighter. So it would be ridiculous to assume that.

Again, the above.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>But that wasn't a cloacking fighter.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Yes it was. The black paintjob helped, but mostly it was invisible due to cloaking. Watch the cartoon again.

Sure they do. Meleks only similarity with the WC3 Melek is that he's fury. And the Kilrathi changed from WC2 to WC3 also a lot.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>I'm a bit sceptical about how they did that, too.

True, the Ranger class was designed before the war. The Tallahassee and the destroyers are also old, hovever we didn't see them before. The ships in the movie may be new because of the same reason as the WC3 ships.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>So every time a carrier goes down, the survivors are court-martialled?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Of course they're not. But Blairs case was strange to say the least. His flight recorder was missing, the fighters did come from the direction of his patrol.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Yes it was

Realy? I though that if you do take same radiation you can still be *cleaned up*. Anyhow, that's just my example, I'm not realy creative (I always get low grades on writing assignments), but I'm sure Telep could find a possible way to bring him back. Let's just wait for the novel, and than we'll see. (and even if Telep doesen't bring Bossman back, I'll still tell you that he did
)

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>But we are told that the Kilrathi are testing a new missile, not a new variant of a missile.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Because it could be a new missile with the same name.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Neither a capship missile nor a torpedo is bigger than a fighter. So it would be ridiculous to assume that.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

But we're not told the lenght of the Skipper from the movie. It looks like it could be at least as big as the Rapier. Besides, if the fighter is bigger it would require a bigger cloack. The Skipper has propulsion, guidence, and the warhead on it. The fither has propultion, more fuel than a missile, missiles or rockets, guns, and of course the pilot.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>And Confed being certain of their technological superiority, they decided that from now on, it is impossible for the Kilrathi to develop a new cloak, and therefore all rumours of such a device should be dismissed
.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Now, but the Claw was destroyed two years after the movie. Two years isn't realy that much time when it comes to develping new technology, or improving the older one. Confed simply didn't think the cats could make the new cloack so quickly.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Yes it was. The black paintjob helped, but mostly it was invisible due to cloaking. Watch the cartoon again.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

No, it was stealth, but it didn't have a cloacking device like the WC2/WC3 Strakha. Besides, I don't realy fell like downloading that again. At least not for know, after loosing my HD.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>So the next time somebody mentions stealth fighters, Tolwyn refuses to believe because he has a choice and still finds the whole notion ridiculous, despite the fact that he saw a stealth fighter himself?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Tolwyn is a complex man. Maybe he wanted Blair thrown out of the space forces. Maybe the whole T-K war was just a conspiracy to kill Blair.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>&lt;Grin&gt; And so we can forget about the Pilgrims, because the movie and new books definitely contradict the old stuff

Of course we don't.
The existance of the Pilgrims doesen't contradict the old stuff.

It's for your own good

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Sure they do. Meleks only similarity with the WC3 Melek is that he's fury. And the Kilrathi changed from WC2 to WC3 also a lot.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Nope. They were simplified in WC3, because of the switch from bitmaps to 3D (
), but one could still tell that they were the same old Felines. And in WC4, Melek was simply more detailed, with little hairs and whiskers all over his face. But he still looked like the same old Feline. But the movie Kilrathi... why, they must be related to the hideous, hairless Egyptian cats.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>The ships in the movie may be new because of the same reason as the WC3 ships.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
But then both sides introduce whole new fleets of brand new ships? And by some coincidence, Blair is transferred to a new carrier with the same (well, almost the same) name?

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Of course they're not. But Blairs case was strange to say the least. His flight recorder was missing, the fighters did come from the direction of his patrol.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
But he also had a very good reputation; especially if the two are combined, since that would imply that he not only saved Earth from destruction, but also was the Hero Of Vega Sector, and was responsible for the destruction of the Sivar. Surely, of all people, he could be trusted then?

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Realy? I though that if you do take same radiation you can still be *cleaned up*.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Nope, sorry. Radiation affects the DNA, and Humans aren't very good at messing with that (in the future, they might be; but the breakdown of cells following a large dose of radiation is just too rapid; even if he somehow survived, he'd probably stay on life support for the rest of his life; not to forget the brain damage).

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Let's just wait for the novel, and than we'll see. (and even if Telep doesen't bring Bossman back, I'll still tell you that he did)<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I won't believe you, for the very simple reason that Telep won't bring Bossman back
. Making the two universes fit into one is not a priority as far as he's concerned.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Because it could be a new missile with the same name.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I'm not even going to start on that one...

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Besides, if the fighter is bigger it would require a bigger cloak.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Usually, the problem is with miniaturisation, not with making it bigger. Anyway, fighter cloaks would be a natural extension of the cloaking missile technology, and any Confed Admiral who would ignore that possibility would himself be court-martialled for treason/blatant stupidity. Speaking of which, exactly why is it that in the movie, Tolwyn is an Admiral in charge of the entire Fleet, and then (in Academy) he suddenly becomes a Commodore, and finally a mere Rear Admiral (WC1 and onwards)? Did he go through some other court-martial that we hadn't heard of? And while we're at it, whyever did Angel lose her job as squadron commander
? And finally, why didn't Hunter have a cigar?


<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Two years isn't realy that much time when it comes to develping new technology, or improving the older one.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
As I recall, it took three years to develop the nuclear bomb into the hydrogen bomb; that's a vast improvement. And it only took the Germans two or less years to develop the V-1 into the V-2 - and that was a huge leap. And need I mention the sudden expansion of jet-engine technology following WWII? Or the Apollo program, which developed a revolutionary new type of spacecraft within a mere nine years?

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Confed simply didn't think the cats could make the new cloack so quickly.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
But then, here's Blair, the great hero, who says that he saw a stealth fighter. Wouldn't that make them change their minds?

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>No, it was stealth, but it didn't have a cloacking device like the WC2/WC3 Strakha.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
It did.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Maybe the whole T-K war was just a conspiracy to kill Blair.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Please, don't be ridiculous. If you've run out of proper arguments, then perhaps you should just admit I'm right
.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Of course we don't. The existance of the Pilgrims doesen't contradict the old stuff.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Except perhaps half the known WC universe facts
. Paladin's parents were born in Scotland; they couldn't be Pilgrims. Blair was implied to have come from Earth, and certainly not Nephele. Remember the discussion about his farm in the SO fiction? You'd think they would have mentioned that he was born on Nephele
.

Actualy, if you have read the movie novels you would see how nicely Telep makes it fit.

No it didn't.
There are no cloacking devices on the Strakha from Academy. It's black, and build from a stealth material, but it can't cloack.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Paladin's parents were born in Scotland; they couldn't be Pilgrims.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
AFAIK his parents were born on a space station in orbit of Neptun or some other planet in Sol. And that isn't from the movie or any of the novels either.


<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Blair was implied to have come from Earth, and certainly not Nephele.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Damn. I was going to check, but as was to be expected, Win98 decided to be a pain. It produced some stupid error and refuses to run RealPlayer. I'll check later, once I restart my computer.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>AFAIK his parents were born on a space station in orbit of Neptun or some other planet in Sol. And that isn't from the movie or any of the novels either.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Quoted straight from the KSaga manual (and this is no mistake, it was like this in the original WC 1 manual too):
"Taggart, 45, is a native of Ares, the [...] space station built in permanent orbit around [...] Venus; his parents were terraforming engineers from Wick, Scotland."
See? Not only were they from Scotland, it actually also gives us the name of their home town. So the movie is wrong. So there.


<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>No it wasn't. There is no mention of him coming from Earth.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
No, but it was implied several hundred times, which I'm too lazy to list. Like I said though, if he was from Nephele, then why were people unhappy with the Nephelian Governor's decision to have the Blair Museum there? This decision was questioned due to the small amount of time he spent there - but had he been born there, no argument would have been possible.

It seems to me that you're losing, Earthworm. Come to the dark side! Come, admit I'm right, and we shall rule together...

No, it isn't wrong. So his parents aren't from the space station, but he is. Humans started to develop those Pilgrim powers because they lived close to the center something on spacestations. So even if his parents weren't Pilgrims Paladin still could be one. Besides, who says the parents of his parents weren't Pilgrims?

Foolish mortal, I was quite serious
. Anyway, I've checked it now; unfortunately, there is nothing to indicate either way.

Humans started developing Pilgrim powers after living in space for several generations. Paladin was the first generation. As for his parents... that's another one of those silly arguments that can't be proven either way, but we both know that it's senseless.

Finally. It was hidden in episode 3. Quote:

[...]
""Even though his time on Nephele was brief, this was the world he turned to when he wanted a home.""

As you can see, nobody said anything about him being born there. And don't even think about saying "nobody said anything about him not being born there"
. Had he been born there, they would've mentioned it.
