Are we going to see about 20 stars go Supernova?

There are no red things in BWO.

That's the official line, but I notice that there are red things in this screenshot.  Four of them, in fact.

I think it's RE technology.

There are no Shivans in BWO.

Certain Shivan technologies may or may not be used by certain factions.

I was right!



Is the GTD Golgotha the GTVA's ultimate weapon, or is there a bigger, badder, evil secret that the GTVA will unleash?

I don't think there are tanks in BWO. That's why it's so good... Warzone, Derelict... Inferno... Everything has Shivans. In the age of stereotypes, of 20km superjugs and 3rd Shivan Great Wars, IceFire decided to do something different.

Unless there are Shivans in BWO.

*If* there were Shivans, they'd only be present in a manner to conclude possible debates that would arise once the campaign was released.

However, there are no Shivans in BWO.

Close enough. It's like some random person correcting a government figure about some obscure government action.

Ace is errr....Project Awesome.  He's got some great stuff coming and he's really been leading us along the last little while.  Deserves as much credit as I do.

Those red beams have to be fired by a Sath.  But if there are no Shivans in BWO, then that means one of the Terran factions has captured a Sath, and possibly other Shivan vessels.  So it looks like Shivan vessels appear, but they're being piloted and crewed by Terrans...

One other question:  The two big ships near the red beams...What classes of vessel are they?  One of them has to be the Golgotha...

This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address occurred during the same week.  This is an ironic juxtaposition of events--one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication, while the other involves a groundhog.
