Media VP 3.6.8 and 3.0.3 Galatea shot (spoiler)
Took this in my review mirror as I was escaping the blast zone.

I made it my background, and am posting it incase anyone else wants it.

It was taken at 1280x1024

I belive it was just "Admiral Wolf" I think he was the best CO Alpha 1 ever had, wasn't as downbeat as Shima, and wasn't as naive as Petrach, and less ambigous then Wallace or... whoever the Soyakaze's Admiral was

That's a terrific shot. Is that just pure FS2 screenshot goodness, no HDRish or other editing done on it?
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

I'm certain there was an E on the end, you're right though He was the most straight up, take no bull CO in the series.

From the debriefing text of sm2-10a.FSM ("Doomsday"):

   Many lives were saved by the Hermes escape pods.  For that we are thankful.  But we mourn the loss of Admiral Wolf.  He was a great commander and he died with the ship he loved.

All surviving pilots are reassigned to the GTD Bastion.  Though we all lost friends on the Galatea, there is no time to mourn the dead.  The fate of the Alliance is grim.

Edit: I also love this line from one of the possible outcomes:

$Formula: ( not
   ( is-destroyed-delay 0 "Galatea" )
)

   You fled the most important battle of your career.  The Galatea has been lost and the people of Vasuda Prime are doomed.

Such cowardice is unconscionable.  You are permanently grounded.

Who in their right mind would just randomly jump out during the mission before the action was over? Talk about being self-centered...

I want to know where the Galatea's squadrons were, there were 96 combat craft on the Galatea, why were only (what was it... five?) used?

Space is a big theatre of battle, As a flagship i'd imagine the Galataes  squadrons were probably mustered to support the other cruisers and what-not.
 (Surely the ORiFFice cant be the only croosa?)

I remember playing the demo, seeing it and thinking "Woa! That thing is big!"  :D

Thats straight out of the game, the only editing I did was remove "OMG We arn't gonna make it" from the top.

I have to admit, in a rather random addition, I'm still blown away by the quality of the HTL Orion.

 
Re: Media VP 3.6.8 and 3.0.3 Galatea shot (spoiler)
I agree it's a really really good quality model.
