    I vote for 82 Eridani as well. Vengeance before filthy lucre (if nothing else, because the colonization effort is already spread too thin for filthy lucre to be abundant).
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by.
    It ended abruptly in the middle of nowhere; would not pick again.

    Yeah, I'd rather finish with El Dorado before getting stuck in another similar system. I suppose we shouldn't complain about being too rich, though.

    What is the population of the Nexus? If it's considerable, we may want to start shipping factories to that planet, in order to start production of installations. That way we can use it as a forgeworld for the development of new worlds.

    Another research lab, another Deep Space Tracking Station (the tenth, not counting the one that the Robots ripped apart), another robot attack.

    The Nexus is up to 8.45 million colonists, with 17 Factories but only 2 mines. We don't yet have a reliable source of minerals set up at that end of our empire... I've been shipping them in.

    For Christ's sake...

    The Pratt Carrier line has set up a tourist route, using Luxury Liners to ship rich AND VERY STUPID tourists out to El Dorado, where they go wandering across the battlefield, into the ruined city, poking into sealed vaults and trying to buy souveneirs from the homicidal killer robots. Naturally, most of them get their heads ripped off, and then they complain.

    ... well... the ones that DIDN'T get their heads ripped off complain. The ones that DID get their heads ripped off don't say very much.

    OK, that's it. I'm placing this planet under interdict. No more tourists. WILL ALL OF YOU IDIOTS JUST GO HOME???

    I went into SM mode, removed the tourists to a different planet, and flagged El Dorado as a source of colonists instead of a destination. Since it has zero population, that should keep people away.

    Idiots.

    The first two Battles have finished refitting to Battle-II class, and have rejoined the Combined Fleet while the last two Battles have taken their places on the slips for their own refit. The fleet has finished overhaul, and is ready to depart for some Prix-hunting.

    The Combined Fleet (minus vessels currently detached for refit) now consists of :

    two Rock-II class Decoy Vessels
    two Rock-III class Decoy Vessels
    six Mountain-II class Light Carriers
    three Battle-II class Heavy Cruisers
    six Attitude-II class Light Cruisers
    six Star-II class Destroyers
    two Admiral-II class Command Cruisers
    one Peeping Tom class Battle Management Vessel
    one Culverin class Monitor
    three Cornucopia class Ammunition Tenders
    four Tipple class Fleet Tankers
    two Blink class Fast Recon Vessels
    four Spy class Recon Vessels
    eight Storm class Gauss Point Defense Frigates

    ... a total of fifty vessels.

    EDIT:

    ... and 40 Gnats, two Gnat Strike Leaders, and 92 Streaks. Four of the Mountain-IIs have been re-armed with Streaks, the other two are still carrying Gnat groups.

    Are the minelayers part of this operation? They did prove rather useless last time, though.

    Too slow. I'll just use them as Minelayers until I have a chance to refit more powerful engines into them.

    I just spent over an hour transferring more than a hundred pilots from Gnats to Streaks... one at a time.

    The difference between "Base Temp" and current temperature does not necessarily indicate terraforming. Albedo (1.05, in this case) affects the final temperature, as does the gas mix in the atmosphere (Greenhouse effect).

    Do you want one of the Fast Recon vessels... they can actually outrun the Prix. Or you could wait a few months and take a warship... whichever you prefer.
