WC Movie - Details

Two questions:
- firstly, what is the "Odyssey" Blair is reading at the beginning of the movie ? A book written by the Pilgrims ?
- then, is there someone here who knows what are the classes of the other ships of the BG Concordia ?

I didn't remember exactly, but i think "Odyssey" was written by an ancient greek philosopher named Homer.

I think it makes sense that he reads the ancient one, since they meet "Scylla" shortly thereafter and he tells Maniac the ancient background.

Blair is reading Homer's Odyssey -- which is why he spouted off about the origins of the name Scylla <G> There's a crazy Odyssey naming scheme in the movie -- Scylla & Charybdis, and the Ulysseys Cooridore.

The other ships in the Concordia's escort group (5 cruisers, 5 destroyers and 10 support ships) are various WC1 classes... there are some Exeters there, and the TCS Beowulf... which was a Gilgamesh.

In the movie ? on the secret message Blair gives to Sansky, we can see four other "main" ships...

Aww, is this another one of those artistic license thingies? I understand that the Concordia in the movie was a different ship - now there are Exeters and Gilgameshes in that fleet too?

I was just objecting to how different the movie ships look, although, I suppose the Tiger's Claw already has four forms (WCM, WCA, WC1, SWC).

... but we don't see any of these escorts in the movie, save for a tiny silouette on a computer screen.

Don't we? Oh, I thought that's what we were talking about. Still, what were those ships with the Concordia blasting the Kilrathi Fleet as they came through the jump point, then?

Those were all supercruisers.
