    Well, there's still plenty of people around with less rank

    I say Lt Ook has proven his ability and should be the leader of the third squadron.
    I also respect his bravery in volunteering to lead the first sortie against the Koala Menace.

    @ Adamus - You are the Captain of CA Ulysses S. Grant, a Sirocco Class Cruiser and currently Task Force Commander of our navy. This will only last until the Training Group is merged with the rest of the fleet where Rear Admiral Boris ze Spider II will take over from the Cruiser CA Ulan Bator while Vice Admiral OrangeYoshi directs the strategi from the Flag Bridge on CV Blue Emu. Also, please remember that this is a non-smoking flight - Including no smoking in the lavatory.

    @ Reis - I am disappointed in your lack of respect of your superior officer Captain. Remember that people who say the truth... ehm.... Offend their superiors often meets Lt. Ook.

    And I can see that I have a Rear Admiral I need to kill somehow. I can't have him promoted to Vice Admiral ahead of the Paradoxians and at the moment he outscores Boris by 900 points. Any creative ideas? He's currently the captain of 1 of our destroyers, so we could have him test the PD against the Kox, but that would be a waste of Destroyer.... Ah, well - I'll figure something out.

    What are Flag Lt. Ook's stats, anyway? ;-)

    @ Reis - I'm considering sending him in a combat drop FAC against a Kox PD PDC. After forgetting to load troops there ofc.

    @ Randy - You have to discuss that with the Fleet Logistical Officers. He's sitting 2 seats to the left of you in the meetings, remember???

    And Lt. Ook don't have stats. He don't need them. He's got arms like a Gorilla.

    @ Vain - No! He's gotta die horribly (Or I'll retire him while writing a good story to how he died)

    Load him into a fighter on the first squadron into action. The precursors in my current game are firing size 1 ASMs with a range of something like 50M km doing 69,400KM/s, which is significantly more bastardly than the last precursors I've encountered because they're throwing 64 missiles in each salvo, and can fire at least four dozen salvos before running dry from their PDCs. So if the Kox are anything like that, our fighters are going to get splashed with heart-rending frequency.

    @ Vain - Good Idea - I'll have him assigned as your wingman on your next mission.

    @ Boris - As you command! The session where Purple Dawn is launched will be tomorrow at app. 18.00 CET. Just waiting for the overhaul to finish now.

    Good, good. I am not worried for myself, personally: as my dear father demonstrated, it takes a full-sized anti-ship missile to kill one of the Glory family, even when they have no armor.

    EDIT

    Anyone happen to know the answer to this question I'm about to pose: if you destroy PDCs by firing nukes at them it causes collateral damage to the installations on the planet (and to the atmosphere), which is why landing troops to capture the PDCs is a better idea if you can pull it off. But what about against precursors? I've encountered two ~12,000t precursor PDCs on a planet, and I could easily blow them away with my battleships. I'm wondering whether this affects the number of installations discovered on the planet when a Xenology team is sent in. I'd assume no, because as I understand it the game generates the planet (moon of a super jovian actually) with a base on it and classes it as, say, a partially intact colony. When a Xenology team is planted, the number of installations is calculated based on diceroll, the skill of the team, and the rating of the precursor colony. Thus bombarding the planet has no effect because no installations exist yet to be destroyed. But I'm not sure about this. I'd just land the troops, but I suspect that will end very badly: the PDCs expended their ASMs against my fleet, mostly against my battleships (210 shielding, 10 layers of armor, one BB took 1 hit under the armor but that was it) although a few DEs and DLs got splashed, but their AMMs are still locked and loaded (most bizarrely they're firing size 1 ASMs at 50M km, and apparently size 20 AMMs that split into submunitions :s) so my Fast Landing Craft will get mutilated.

    Never considered it, so I must admit I have no idea. But would be very interested in the answer. Would change the strategy for planetary assaults.

    Make a copy of your database after nuking the planet, but before sending a xeno team and see if you get different results. If they are, it's probably just random + skill.

    No no no no no
    No no no no no no no
    No no no no ...yes?
