Corona 3: Nothing on scope, sir. Goddamn useless Aurora sensor pods...
Corona 1: Brevity, people.
Corona 2: I think Three's right. It's just not here.
Corona 1: When Command wants your opinion they'll promote you to admiral. Now shut up and keep looking.
Corona 3: With all due respect, sir, I don't think it's even part of this continuity.

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
i think you skipped a question between 14 and 12 unless I missed something.

Hrm. A beam-less explodey thing that moves under its own power and has more than one person in it, but you don't drive it in any released campaigns and nor is it in BP. I'm guessing reconstruction or T-V war, since it's not retail canon either.

Is it a T-V war era ship?
Inferno: It's the I in Inferno / It's the beam spam delight / Risin' up to a shock jump arrivaaaaaal
Between The Ashes: Look just a really cool and neat thing, OK?
The Last Stand: A very episodic capship command mini-campaign
Breakthrough: A pretty standard but not really capship command mission

 
Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Yeah, I went straight from 14 to 12, good catch.

It's not a T-V War ship, but we've already determined that it's neither Terran nor Vasudan, so I'm not going to count that one.

7 questions remain, unless I ****ed up elementary arithmetic again.

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Oh. I have one. Since it's not BP, it can't be the vishans, so....

Is it featured in Ancient-Shivan War?

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
It very well may be, battle brother. Six inferior questions still remain, but our glorious empire shall exterminate them all the same.

Of course! How else is it to launch the sacred Kato and extend the glory of our empire?

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Yes, by the Core! Got it with four questions left.

 
Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
I would want to pass the question to someone else, but if nobody wants to, then I will think of something.

Target in visual range. Move to broadside position and open fire!

That thing canon and material?

Taking "canon" to mean "appears in a :v: canon campaign": no, it is not canon. Yes, it is material.
