Re: Any Babylon 5 Fans Out here?

Star Wars and Star Trek have never been, nor will they ever be, on my list to watch (if had one, that is).
A rebooted Babylon 5 however would certainly be on it. Foundation? No, probably not... nor Dune.

Re: The best place to earn money and increase your rank

Get a heavy assassin in an Asp on your tail, and it will follow you through to the next system, and unless you're in a super-fast OXP ship, it will stay with you all the way into the Aegis. You can barrel-roll all you want, but you've got to fly straight to dock. Then it will pounce!

Probably! She was fighting gooks when I had the privilege of testing a mission for the player.

It was fun docking with that ship! B5 was easily the best sci-fi TV series! I believe there's a reboot in the pipeline.

Re: The best place to earn money and increase your rank

If bandits follow you into IS, it can be entertaining - but you probably won't have time to watch.
If they have the capability/fuel/time to jump out, they will. If not, they'll fight.

Re: The best place to earn money and increase your rank

Some types of enemies (assassins definitely, possibly some types of pirates*) can and will follow you through hyperspace. Using IS to evade is fine if you have enough fuel to escape IS. Interstellar Rescue may help, but don't rely on it. *I think Pirate Interceptors and Aegis Raiders (but I ain't to...

There are caveats attached to those methods of evasion.

Re: Her Imperial Majesty's Space Navy

Placement of some bases means that the white colour gives the station a better chance of not immolating! It's those sunwards bases which could do with being darker. Bases in IS aren't so bad due to the different lighting there. About sunwards: I play with sun_distance_multiplier = 5; but I just swi...

A considerable proportion of fanfic in general is trash.
Mind you, the same could be said of original fiction.

Re: Her Imperial Majesty's Space Navy

HIMSN Shipyards: I'd expect their base shipyards to offer the whole range of native equipment, regardless of the TL of the system in which it's located. Possibly at a premium, of course. That should certainly apply to their HQ in interstellar space. Unless this is already the case?

Yep!


Never used turrets, but I once had a Constrictor with what I presume was a plasma cannon instead of the laser.
Once you'd mastered the shot leading (as you had to with the Railgun), it was lethal.
