Its not any special MOD, its a Leviathan cruiser. IIRC it survived the entire derelict campaign without getting destroyed while every other ship had the opposite luck. I think it even survived the full scale shivan assault. I just thought it might be kind of cool to...u know...see it in action again.

Uh, that was more a sly dig at Goober's correction than your English, TopAce, I hasten to add.

That might be snuck in at some point.  The danger is of course that I'm prone to destroying well loved ships.  We do it a few times...

It's not exactly wrong either. If you're using commas for lists, then ", and" is wrong, but if you're using it to denote a break in the timing of the sentence, then ", and" is acceptable.

At least, that was what I was taught.

Kellan and I figured out a way to "incorporate" Derelict and Warzone's storyline to form a minor amount of backplot to the new campaign.

BWO is entirely new in its own right...but if you played Warzone and/or Derelict then you'll notice a few tips of the hat.

Interesting...I never knew that. So BWO could be considered kindof a sequel to the stories of WZ and Derelict?

*smites Roanoke for not learning proper grammar*

In the case of my correction to TopAce's post, it was right.  He had two sentences joined to form a compound sentence.  The way you do that is with a comma and a conjunction.  Therefore, a comma followed by the word "and" is correct. :p

You should use a comma before the last item of a list, except where it would cause confusion.

Example: "I am going to the store to get eggs, butter, and milk."  A comma is used before "and"; no confusion there.

Example: "I would like to thank Mr. Smith, the mayor, and my friend Joe for their help".  Here there's confusion as to whether Mr. Smith and the mayor are the same person.  If they're not, then the comma should be taken out: "I would like to thank Mr. Smith, the mayor and my friend Joe..."  If they are, the sentence needs to be reworded.  Though if I were writing the sentence I would reword it even in the first case so as to keep the comma in its proper place.
