Like for instance the GTD Orestes...But no ship exists with that name in the GTA's Database.
Orestes, heh.
Isn't that BP?

I needed a name thats not used in official FS canon ie in retail FS1, ST and FS2. AND i took the name from an EA ship class from the B5 universe; The Orestes Monitor...

Okay lets say the GTD *blank* is called the GTD Orestes in ST:R

When you encounter the Orestes in mission 3, it had the orders and codes showing that they have the authority to pick up the Einstein's escape pods. However, there is no ship registered with the GTA as the GTD Orestes. So the ship vanishes along with the survivers it picked up.

You know the old "prisoner transfer to a disappearing transport" conspiracy gimmick.

Yes just like that. Has that been actively included in ST:R? - That you are informed that according to official listings there is no ship called the GTD *Whatever*

I expecially like the credits thing at the end and the Earth/fiery bird motif.
Same here, I'd really like a hi-res of that logo thing.

Thanks. A friend of Goober's (whose name escapes me at the moment) modeled it, and I animated it. It's the official GTI Insignia.

And, ah... how big did you want it, again? ;7

Oh right. It reminds me of the insignia on the side of that Herc in FS2's intro cutscene.

I've split off the music discussion into its own separate thread.  Let's keep this one on topic. :)

Oh...

So that's why there was a dead Hades there.

I see absolutely no reason for giving the much-loved GeeTeeDee a less catchy unofficial name.

But to call it the GTD GeeTeeDee looks weird coming from a remake of a canon campaign, especially since Axem's used it in JAD2:EB already.

Perhaps it should be called GTD Sesquipedalian. :drevil:

...just kidding. How about a word with the three letters in it?

So something going on in the FS2 intro cutscene relates to GTI? Presumably also explaining how a Hades ended up crashed there?

Go watch the FS2 intro again. Then come back.

Well it also explains why the Hades was on that planet, the battle between the Hades and GTA forces takes place in Deneb.

It is also interesting that that's where the Ancient information that enabled Bosch to turn on the Konossos was found.

We also see a science cruiser that could well be the Einstien in front of the construction platform the Hades is in.

It also supports the notion the Legion was at the Battle of Deneb if there were GTI fighters there.

It all makes sense.

Well the Legion was shown to have been destroyed by the Lucifer.

Maybe the Legion was GTI?

Err.

The Legion was the flagship of GTI R&D wasn't it? (according to some mythic interview)

I would like to point out that the destroyer in the FS2 intro cutscene was never officially named by Volition. Some player asked them if it could be called "Legion" and Volition basically said "Yeah, sure, why the hell not?"

Boystrous 19 year old temp at work slapped me in the face with an envelope and laughed it off as playful. So I shoved him over a desk and laughed it off as playful. It's on camera so I can plead reasonable force.  Temp is now passive.
