Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
I'm wondering how my opinions might have changed of Battuta had he said the person is cute and then followed up with them not being human... :p

That would limit it to him having either a zod or shivan infatuation...

Is it the dead Hercules pilot from the intro cutscene?
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Do they fly a fighter?

They almost certainly did. 11!

Are they mentioned in any of the documents in the techroom?

They are mentioned in a document in the techroom. 10!

Is it the dead Hercules pilot from the intro cutscene?

Awesome guess, but no! 9!

Are they in a cutscene?

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Do they appear in a post-Capella mod?

That's an interesting question. I said earlier that the answer is retail only. That is true: the answer is only related to retail.

However, I think it is important to note that they do appear, in a sense, in a post-Capella mod. This gets into some funny hair-splitting ontology, so I'm trying to respond in the way that gives the most information.

6 left! I'm rooting for uuuuuu

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
The answer has nothing to do with General Battuta.

The answer is retail only, but appears, in a sense, in a post-Capella mod. (It's hard to explain this with yes/no). They almost certainly flew a fighter.

The answer is NOT a character from the FS2 campaign. They do NOT appear in a cutscene. They do NOT have a speaking role, and they do NOT appear exclusively in a multiplayer campaign.

They are not the dead Herc pilot from the FS2 intro, and they are not Esmar al'Faddil.

The answer has a name. The answer is mentioned in a document in the techroom.

The answer is a human person who's kinda cute in my opinion.

I was going to guess Mina Hargrove but then I remembered she speaks in the briefings.

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Is it the player?

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
So, about that mention in a tech room document... Is it a document from Freespace 1?

Who is Captain Esmar Al'Faddil?
Who is Al'Fadil? I mean, either there is something wrong with this question, or with Battuta's response...

Al'Fadil has voice acted lines, though...

Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
the number of people mentioned by name in the techroom in either game has to be pretty slim, and the number who aren't then also in the campaign slimmer still

Yes, the answer is mentioned in a document in both the FS1 and FS2 techrooms. 3 left.

Boy, FS1 does have awesome credits music.
