Hello fan(s),

Bringing you as innovative and unique ideas as "campaigns that are funney" and "anime in campaigns" (as well as "using Ravanas in campaigns"), I bring you this new amazingly original idea that has never been done before ever: Writing fan mail to the in-universe characters.

So I invite you to write Holley, Delta 1, Epsilon 1, mysterious unrevealed characters, or anyone else with your thoughts, questions or poems. Responses may be provided in the thread or answered in the campaign itself!

Or both!

Please note that a behavioral projections may be compiled of users that submit messages, this data may be used for targeted monetization and amortization.

Dear Anyone/Everyone,

What have you all been up to during the INTERMINABLE hiatus? Holley, I imagine you especially must be utterly bored to death without new Beta Testers to kill.

Dear Mysterious Unrevealed Character,

Are you willing to state, for the record, that at no time did you do the thing possibly, but not necessarily, related to the other thing?

Dear Anyone/Everyone,

What have you all been up to during the INTERMINABLE hiatus? Holley, I imagine you especially must be utterly bored to death without new Beta Testers to kill.

Holley: I have been hard at work engaging in productive captaincy skill training by playing Galaxy of Warships. After months of grinding I finally achieved the T8 Orion (however as usual the good weapons only come with the C hulls). And during loading screens, I am sure to be checking up on the latest holo-shows (Hot shows right now: My Bride is a Vasudan, Bosch's Bizzare Adventure, and My Little Shivan) and sequential static imagery media (Ch 8935 of Ubunruto just got released!).

Delta 1: Undergoing a complete and total retransformation! New haircut, new clothes, new sparks, and a new lease on life! Focus groups tell me that I am now 52% more dashing and 12% more likely to be cast in future hit roles. But while that is still far away, I have taken up as a casual part-time writer for the wonderful and insightful holonet funtainment-news-share-gregator community “Shock’dwave!!” I'll have to make sure some article get posted here once they've been vetted and approved. Sample articles titles include: 10 Underrated Ships With Amazing Pasts, 6 Tips To Avoid Beams and 12 Things You Didn't Know About The Colossus!

Epsilon 1: Reading.

Dear Mysterious Unrevealed Character,

Are you willing to state, for the record, that at no time did you do the thing possibly, but not necessarily, related to the other thing?

Sincerely,
Channel 4 News

Mysterious Unrevealed Character: You don't have any proof. Even if you did, it could have been doctored. But since you don't, there's nothing. But if you do find anything that could be proof, but remember, there's not, please let me know so I may analyze it. Be sure to send all copies and erase your own personal copies so you don't get dragged into what could be a tragic tragic mess. (Actually just give me your IP address, I can take care of the rest) (Actually never mind, I found it)

An Open Letter to the Team:

What are your speculations on FRED's disappearance? Do you think there may be some sort of mutation to wxFred or qtFred (or maybe something in between)?

Delta 1: Cutie FRED? Just how cute are we talking here? A 9? 10? Also qtFred is a she right?

Holley: Speculations on the disappearance? No need to speculate, it was all plainly shown in Just Another Day 2: Electric Boogaloo, starring my hero (and future husband) Alpha 1! He showed that jerk god who was boss with that plot hole bomb he was mysteriously asked to protect.

Epsilon 1: I don't know.

To Xoriel: What is your favorite mathematical operation?
Multiplication! Especially multiplying by -1. It's a flip switch.

To Armoriel: Which do you prefer? Sword or Shield?
Swords, since proper use of the sword can become a mighty shield as well.

To Teleportiel: What is your favorite move in Pokemon?
Metronome, you'll never know what pops up…

To Reflectiel: What is your favorite piece of equipment in the Wind Waker?
Hookshot. Then light arrows.

To Dubstepiel: What is your favorite song?
I will survive. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBR2G-iI3-I)

To Dividiel: What do you like to do more? Factoring or solving polynomials?
Polynomial math is quite challenging, but gives a better payoff. I also enjoy binary tree searches for fun.

To Trinitiel: What is your favorite number?
9

To The End: What is your favorite mission in retail FS2?
A Game of Tag. For the suffering generated from it.

Dear Misuzu,

What the heck are you doing trying to sneak into JAD as an Angel Beta Tester? Don't you know Spoon needs you for the amazing WoD remake? I hope you have some brilliant plan to deal with the continuity hijinks this will cause with JAD 2.21.

PS: Why must we fight? You would totally be bros with Holley if you gave her a chance.

Post by: Misuzu Stella on September 25, 2015, 07:41:17 pm
How did you see through my amazing cover?! Anyway, I just moved to a universe where my amazing references and puns are more appreciated!
Also the promise for unlimited power, so easy too, just go around the back!

...But then they left me waiting for like... forever.  :hopping:
I think I'll just go home.

Anyone/Everyone (besides Misuzu, we know your answer):

What's your most-anticipated in-development HLP campaign (besides your own, of course)?

If your choice is NuInferno, the best and most epic campaign ever, you can have a free Lindos. Limit one Lindos per person.



Also, who's your favorite RWBY character?

No more bribes available, sorry.

Hi Holly.
Why do you like pink so much?, is there a particular reason or is it just because you turned out girlish and stylish?

Also, if you found yourself stranded on the other side of a dimensional warp forever, with just one of your male squadmates, which one would you pick?
Delta 1 or Epsilon 1?

Think about the possibility of landing in a planet and having to form a new civilization from zero.
Don't worry, this would also mean you'd actually turn into some sort of queen! Not that you aren't right now but, well.. that would be formal.

Cheers!

Anyone/Everyone (besides Misuzu, we know your answer):

What's your most-anticipated in-development HLP campaign (besides your own, of course)?

Holley: Well I can't wait for the next episode of Wings of Dawn to come out! Playing as a girl with amazing ancient godlike light fighter friends is a dream of mine. Aside from that… maybe BWO? For a campaign that started development before I was born, I'm sure it'll have to be the best ever. (ED Note: Now Holley, it hasn't been THAT long...)

Delta 1: The easy answer would be War in Heaven Act 4+5, but let's just disregard that for a second. The noir reconstruction thriller Between the Ashes is looking very fine and I'm sure it's going to be a blockbuster release. All the mystery, shadiness and cloaked machinations emanating from it… I'm really kicking myself for missing the open casting. I'll have to keep an eye out if they announce a sequel…

Epsilon 1: Inferno.

Holley: You know he said he took away the bribes...

Also, who's your favorite RWBY character?

Holley: Yang is best. Anyone who disagrees can leave the internet forever.

Hi Holly.
Why do you like pink so much?, is there a particular reason or is it just because you turned out girlish and stylish?

Holley: Well pink isn't actually my favorite color, its purple. The color of royalty! But I like to sprinkle the pink text where I can to help bring some actual color variety to this ugly den of washed out reds and grays. (Also the default purple here SUCKS) Maybe I should go for rainbow text?

Also, if you found yourself stranded on the other side of a dimensional warp forever, with just one of your male squadmates, which one would you pick?
Delta 1 or Epsilon 1?

Think about the possibility of landing in a planet and having to form a new civilization from zero.
Don't worry, this would also mean you'd actually turn into some sort of queen! Not that you aren't right now but, well.. that would be formal.

Holley: Just them...? Delta 1 I guess, he can actually be useful and we might actually have a chance of survival. Though I could trade Epsilon 1 away to the first space aliens I encounter... Life is full of hard choices... (Of course it goes without saying that Alpha 1 would be my preferred candidate!)

Starting a civilization sounds cool, I've already got my faction sheet all ready for the day it happens...
(http://lazymodders.fsmods.net/axemart/JAD/alphacentauriholley.png)
Don't be worried about the poor industry and economy, we would just force the other factions to do the dirty work for us. It'll be a utopia of amazing proportions!

I mean there will be other people there right... it's just not me and one of them?!

To "The End", Whose trust did you lose?

No comment.

Post by: Lepanto on September 26, 2015, 03:25:41 pm
Good taste, Delta 1. Don't worry, BtA will ROCK. If a sequel comes around, we'll call you.

Epsilon 1, your Lindos is in the mail. Only comes in Tilemapped Gray. Does not come with Berserk System, and will likely get one-shotted by future Beta Testers. Does not come with 10,000-man crew. Some assembly required. Thank you for accepting bribes from the Inferno Bribe Fund. Have a nice day.

We at the Inferno Bribe Committee apologize for any confusion. We meant to say that we only distribute bribes for support of Inferno. Favorite RWBY characters are not covered by the Inferno Bribe Fund.


------------------------------------------------------------------------

To Anyone/Everyone,

If you could fly any ship from any Freespace mod or derivative game, with a free built-in Berserk System, which one would you pick and why?

To Cdr. Mackerel,

How satisfied are you with the pace of your daughter's character development? Do you think she'll have become a more hard-working and caring person by End of GTVAgelion?

To Anyone/Everyone,

Holley: Add it to the Horizon and let me captain it. I guarantee results in SECONDS. OR. Guardian Angel! It might turn into a giant robot! Why aren't you egghead coders getting on this already?!

Delta 1: Kentauri would be pretty awesome. That thing is already mind numbingly fast, adding on some extra speed to it would make it unhittable. Of course it would take a lot of getting used to since my Rhea isn't the most... agile.

Epsilon 1: I would just like my current fighter to have these upgrades.


To Cdr. Mackerel,

How satisfied are you with the pace of your daughter's character development? Do you think she'll have become a more hard-working and caring person by End of GTVAgelion?

Merv: I think Holley is doing very well for herself. She does not make friends easily so I was very happy that she was able to make two new ones so fast. I believe she will be a very mature and responsible adult by the end of all of this trouble.

Holley: Such praise! And what better way to show this appreciation than to raise my allowance…

Merv: No.

Holley: :(

Ah yes, I have a problem discerning between near-wavelenght colors. So it was purple and because of royalty, well that makes a lot of sense!


A question for Epsilon 1 then:
What do you hate the most?
1- Escort missions.
2- Wave spamming missions.
3- Poorly scripted capital combat missions.
4- Taco gathering missions.

Also, where you able to finish Inferno?

To Anyone/Everyone from all JAD continuity with a funny answer (including Holley's friends, other side characters, unrevealed Beta Testers, FRED, and even the Irony Nazis from JAD1.)

(But NOT HOLLEY, she's a big meanyface who shot me with a laser cannon for not bribing her. I'm not asking you any more questions until you say you're sorry. Jerk.),

Favorite BP faction, and why?

Favorite genre of music?

Favorite Colossus death?

What weapon from outside JAD would you like to have a Berserk Mode version of mounted on your fighter?

Also, is Derek Smart still president of the GTVA? If not, who is?

To the Dead Beta Testers,

Looking back, any final regrets, or thoughts on the manner of your deaths? If you hadn't decided to attack the FRED Knossos, what would you have done with your lives?

Also, where you able to finish Inferno?

Epsilon 1: Any mission type can become tedious if overused. My opinion into the matter does not change things.
Holley: What a non-answer...
Epsilon 1: Also I have played the original Inferno. It was acceptable.

To Holley, Delta 1, and Epsilon 1.
You're making a pizza, what 3 toppings do you put on it?

Holley: Mmmmm... Hamburger, bacon... and extra cheese I guess. Cheeseburger pizza is the way to go! Just two take slices and put them facing each other and you've got the best Italian based food in the galaxy!

Delta 1: Tie between ham and pineapple and maybe a real Italian based pizza. Tomatoes, olives, green peppers...
Holley: Ham and what?
Delta 1: Pineapple goes great with the ham! It's complimentary tastes.
Holley: You don't put fruit on a pizza! That's heresy!

ED Note: Rest of conversation omitted for space.

Epsilon 1: Plain cheese will suffice.

Holley:
(http://lazymodders.fsmods.net/axemart/JAD/holleyreactions/colonp.jpg)

Favorite BP faction, and why?

Delta 1: I'd have to go with the Federation. I'd love to live there. Don't get me wrong, as much as I like saving the universe, the world of art calls to me and in the GTVA, if you're not making a fighter-based war drama then basically you're on the street.

Meddy: Vasudans! They stand above that ugly civil war business and know what the real battles need to be fought: Fashion. The best the TEI programs brought there is more and more drab grays and browns. Meanwhile 3 systems over, Crown prince Abak'marin's latest robes are to die for. The Enundae silk is so lightweight and keeps you warm on those cold station mornings, and the iridescent coloring is so eye-catching and never fades.

Sherry: I find the Gaian Effort very intriguing. I would very much like it to interview them and conduct research on their society. A people who would rather change themselves than the world around them is very profound in my opinion. (I do acknowledge that some of their cells have been involved unfortunate behavior with respect to civilians and military personnel, and I hope we could perhaps learn from each other.)

Mysterious Unrevealed Character: Fedayeen. No explanation required.

Beta Tester Group Opinion: Shivans.

Epsilon 1: I believe I should answer GTVA to balance the answers out.

Favorite genre of music?

Delta 1: Soundtracks! The (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJ-QLl5qjLg) more (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NETRmo34KgQ) bombastic (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVycvLAFXmc) the (https://youtu.be/so10dKbhorI) better. (https://youtu.be/3MWxAAQoNiw) I can close my eyes and see the magnificent explosions as I save the universe from devastation. I also have a soft spot (https://youtu.be/vFrjMq4aL-g) for amazing credit songs... Excuse me there's a lot of dust in here.

Meddy: Dancy trance music is killer. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1U4atprI5X0) When you're at a party its great to dance to, but even at home you can just zone out to it.

Sherry: I am very fond of classical music. In particular Albinoni, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuh3WyfVL2M) Bach, (https://youtu.be/rrVDATvUitA) Beethoven, (https://youtu.be/yyelz5Q0Z9w?t=10s) Brahms, (https://youtu.be/hYDkQ4s80SQ) Chopin, (https://youtu.be/tIZPrHl-kek) Dvorak, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjyBN52kNBg) Elgar (https://youtu.be/SvA6FtN8-n0)...

Meddy: I think they get the picture... Harriet loves anything on the top 40! She'll sing your ears off during karaoke, isn't that right?

Harriet: Mmhmm! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hxi7EZf_HYA)

Mysterious Unrevealed Character: Metal (https://youtu.be/ntXdGTuInxU) is (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ylUSNg2HZg) pretty (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SX836fYQL4E) nice. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M2hsI78pzM) I prefer the riff-heavy stuff instead the "I just stabbed myself in the leg with knife" grunting and howling.

Hailey: Why hello! My name is Hailey! I am a new amazing (and original, do not steal) character, set to take the stage and wow everyone with my amazing personality, beauty and amazing song collection. Please see this video playlist (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWg9yLI-RerdUFK9kd8qQYYCRTv9_hInf) for my extreme likes!

Delta 1, Meddy, Sherry, Harriet: ...

Favorite Colossus death?

Delta 1: Colossus Reborn from JAD1 was pretty classic. The rest: just wannabes.

What weapon from outside JAD would you like to have a Berserk Mode version of mounted on your fighter?

Delta 1: Some sort of Gatling gun would be pretty cool. The bullets could be heat seeking and pierce shields and hull... Or would that be too over powered?

Mysterious Unrevealed Character: Just give me this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BM4tPmy-cJo) and everything will be fine.

Also, is Derek Smart still president of the GTVA? If not, who is?

Merv: President Derek Smart PhD is still the president of the GTVA at this time. During Alpha 1's brief betrayal, he had attempted to kill Derek Smart, but instead was forced into battle with Not Derek Smart, who was not Derek Smart. As such President Derek Smart PhD continues to lead the GTVA until he is voted out.

To the Dead Beta Testers,

Looking back, any final regrets, or thoughts on the manner of your deaths? If you hadn't decided to attack the FRED Knossos, what would you have done with your lives?


3rd: BEEEEEAMS!!!
4th: I wish I could have helped more. :) I guess I would try to write self help books if I couldn't help by taking over the universe.
5th: I don't know why I even bothered, that universe sucks. I'M GLAD I'M DEAD! I DON'T NEED TO PUT UP WITH DUMB BOSSY GIRLS OR DUMB PLOTS!
6th: M-maybe I could have made more friends... And I wish I could have finished painting my models...
7th: If I had just fixed those buffer overflows...

To Anyone/Everyone (except for Holley or any obvious aliases thereof):

What's your opinion on My Little Shivan? I'm a proud Brovan myself, but I understand if people aren't into it. If you like it, who's your favorite character?

What's your favorite style of campaign? Story-driven and complex, good shoot-em-up fun, retro retail-like, surreal horror, total conversion, what?

Oh, and thanks for the music (even you, 'Hailey')!

---------------------------------------------------

To Delta 1:

If you could retroactively have any 3 voice-acting roles from any existing FreeSpace campaign or derivative work, who would you be?

To all Beta Testers, living or dead:

How much work did you actually do on FRED's campaign?

What did you think, from first impressions? If released, would it be awesome enough to rival Blue Planet?

---------------------------------------------------

To All Terran and Vasudan Redshirts, Living or Dead:

Why do you stick with this job? BEAMZED to death, forcibly befriended, always shown up by a trio of teenagers with superfighters, overall being less mission-relevant than redshirts in retail...

What would you like the public to know about the neglected life story of JAD's redshirts?

Meddy: Mmm... I think Holley's the only one that actually watches that show...

Holley: Too bad I can't reply! We could have had the most stimulating conversation about Nephilim Pie and Rainbow Dragon. Oh well. What a shame.

What's your favorite style of campaign? Story-driven and complex, good shoot-em-up fun, retro retail-like, surreal horror, total conversion, what?

Delta 1: Heck man, story based campaigns. The more convoluted and twisted the better. I don't to even need to understand the story, I just need to enjoy the twists and turns. You could fit a bit of horror into that as well.

Epsilon 1: I prefer normal retail-like campaigns.

Iota 19: I like Total Conversions, its a nice vacation from the normal day-to-day work grind around here.

To Delta 1:

If you could retroactively have any 3 voice-acting roles from any existing FreeSpace campaign or derivative work, who would you be?

Delta 1:
1.) Alpha 2 from "The Roman's Blunder", speaker of the iconic "I can live with being a pawn if the game makes sense" line. I mean being Snipes would be awesome but I don't think I could do a better job screaming Dive dive dive.
2.) Justice from Wings of Dawn would be pretty great, especially if I could get those pecs too...
3.) Sunder Marcel from Transcend, just because.

To all Beta Testers, living or dead:

How much work did you actually do on FRED's campaign?

3rd: TESTED BEEEEAMS!!!!! NEEDED MORE BEAMS.
4th: I never got around to actually helping. I'm sure it would have been a very good campaign. :)
5th: I told FRED what was wrong with everything (which honestly was everything, and I didn't even get to play the first mission) and he just started to IGNORE ME. I don't really care what happens to his stupid campaign now.
6th: I had errors trying to run it and I didn't want to bother FRED with it so I just told him everything was fine... I hope it was...
7th: Upon installing his insanely complex modifications, I noticed hundreds of errors and warnings and soon found myself consumed by the inherent darkness of the code... It is calling to me, I need to esc-
8th: FRED wanted help but he never got back to me with the downloads! I'm not waiting forever!
9th: I'll get around to it later.
10th: I tried to help but it needed these things called 'mediavps'. I had no idea what he was talking about so I just put all of his files into the data directory. Still didn't work. Kids these days, I don't understand your modding! Was there anything wrong with what Volition gave us in the beginning?
11th: Mr 11th is in a meeting right now. He says thank you for your letter and he hopes that you will support his efforts in the future. Enclosed is a free pen.

Iota 2: We're used to it. I mean we get paid the same if those heroes save the universe or we die trying. And really I prefer the former.
Omicron 12: But even then we do get good survivor's benefits.
Omega 7: Every second Friday off too.
Lambda 92: They also provide free lunches!
Io 39: Two more sorties and I get a free sub!
Iota 2: Well he just jinxed himself...

To Axem: Did/will the Lobster and the Colossal Titan from JAD2 ever make it to Earth? What's the hilarious story of their misadventures?

Actually those two are from JAD3, but I guess I can still reveal what happened. Lobster and Colossal were looking for Alpha 1 but when he didn't show up, each one began to suspect that the other was in a secret friendship with Alpha 1. They got jealous and became enemies. Colossal eventually made it to Vasudan Prime where it just decided to sleep for a million years. Lobster found out about this and got some Shivan friends and decided to glass over Colossal and the planet it was sleeping on (not cool bro). That's when Lobster found these other beings that looked a lot like Alpha 1 and decided to go glass their home planet too. As you can guess from FreeSpace 1's ending, that didn't end well for the Lobster.

Later, Emperor Khonsu found the Colossal's glassed over remains and convinced the GTVA Security Council to commission a ship in its memory.

So alas, no, they never made it to Earth.

Holley,

I'm certain you've thought about the impact of your actions, and are sorry for what you've done. So, I'll give you back your question-answering privileges (retroactively, even!)... ;)

...on ONE condition.  :drevil:

You give us your current, completely honest feelings about Delta 1. ;7

BTW, I'll be feeding your answer through a hyper-advanced GTVI analysis program, so no obvious lies. :p

---------------------------------------

Anyone/Everyone,

What's Derek Smart's campaign platform? Who was his opposition if HE managed to get elected president of the GTVA?

What do you think about his recent anti-Star Citizen policies?

Anyone/Everyone (besides Holley),

Do you find Holley's brattiness endearing, or just plain annoying?

Anyone/Everyone (besides Delta 1),

Do you think Delta 1's as awesome as his reputation made him out to be?

Anyone/Everyone (besides... you get the picture),

Do you think Epsilon 1 has any deep secrets, skills, or personal depths beyond his persona of utter genericness?

---------------------------------------

To FRED,

Which Beta Tester(s) were your favorite to work with?

Do you think your achievements as Alpha 1 were more, less, or equally as impressive as JAD Alpha 1's? Provide supporting evidence.

---------------------------------------

To JAD Alpha 1,

Do you dispute FRED's opinion? If so, provide supporting evidence.

What's your fondest memory from your Alpha 1 tenure? Least fond?

If you could pick Holley, Delta 1, or Epsilon 1 to be your one and only successor, who would you pick?

---------------------------------------

To Other JAD Fans,

C'mon, you've got to have some more insightful/hilarious questions! I don't want to monopolize ALL of Axem's time and comedic genius! :p

Holley: Huh? Uh, I guess he's fine. Kinda weird sometimes but, okay I guess. Wow that was a freebie.
Meddy: C'mon Holley, its okay to expand a bit more on your deep heartfelt feelings.
Holley: Like what.
Meddy: Tell them how you feel about his fiery hair, his dazzling emerald eyes, and that boyish grin that sends you over the moon!
Holley: Can we go to the next question now?
Meddy: You'll mature into a wonderful flower one day, and then you'll grab his eyes, and then his heart!
Holley: Please stop...

Anyone/Everyone,

What's Derek Smart's campaign platform? Who was his opposition if HE managed to get elected president of the GTVA?

Epsilon 1: Derek Smart was in last place for much of the campaign, until the last seconds when he suddenly gained 50 trillion votes. Coincidentally those last few seconds is also when FRED entered our dimension. (As seen in Just Another Day 1, Mission 6) These events could conceivably be linked.
Holley: Just when I thought politics couldn't get any more boring... Where's the political maneuvering? The rebellions? I swear a space monarchy would be so much better...

What do you think about his recent anti-Star Citizen policies?

Holley: Can't say they did much. Star Citizen still in production and isn't out yet even in our time.
Delta 1: On the advice of my lawyer, I will make no comment at this time.

Anyone/Everyone (besides Holley),

Do you find Holley's brattiness endearing, or just plain annoying?

Delta 1: It can get annoying if left unchecked, but countering it does help me with my improv skills...
Meddy: You say brattiness, I say confidence!
Sherry: She can be brash and insensitive at times, but she is still very loyal.
Harriet: Mmhmm!
* Holley hands friends 50 credits each
Holley: :)
Epsilon 1: ...

Anyone/Everyone (besides Delta 1),

Do you think Delta 1's as awesome as his reputation made him out to be?

Meddy: Maybe, I mean he did help save the universe a few times. And even if he's overstating his abilities a bit, there's nothing wrong with a little exaggeration!
Holley: You mean like a certain set of measurements?
Meddy: Cease speaking at once.
Sherry: I do not try to pre-judge people based on reputations that I hear before meeting them. It leads to misunderstandings and unfortunate circumstances.
Ursa-tan: E-excuse me. B-but I'd l-like to just say- um... that I think... D-Delta 1 is-
Holley: What do you think, Harriet? Yea or nay on Delta 1?
Harriet: Mmmm...
Ursa-tan: Erm-- I th-think Delta 1 is...
Holley: Okay, I think we've got everyone accounted for here. Next question!
Ursa-tan: O-oh... okay...

Anyone/Everyone (besides... you get the picture),

Do you think Epsilon 1 has any deep secrets, skills, or personal depths beyond his persona of utter genericness?

Holley: [Uncontrolled laughter]
Delta 1: If he is, he is the best actor in the universe. No offense or anything.
Epsilon 1: None taken.

To FRED,
To JAD Alpha 1,

We are sorry, but neither are available to comment! However with regards to your first question, consider that FRED had to imprison all of the Beta Testers and force them to test!

Dear Everyone,

What is the best FreeSpace parody campaign series, and why is it Deus Ex Machina?

Holley: If you mean Colossus-style… no. I like my fighter intact and amazingly destructive from a distance. But if I had some sort of fighter based melee weapon… Then we're cooking!

What do you all think of the respective EVA characters you were based on? What would you have done differently if you were in their positions?

Holley: Wait, I'm supposed to be based off of someone from that show? I don't recall any blonde girls in leading roles… But I guess Delta 1 is some sort of genderbent version of Asuka then, huh.
Delta 1: What. No. Obviously not. We both might have red hair, like red vehicles and have a natural talent for showing off but… my family life is so much more stable.
Holley: Plus she's got a name.
Delta 1: Who's Epsilon 1 based off of then? Shinji?
Holley: No no, Rei. Emotionless and creepy.
Delta 1: He doesn't have blue hair.
Holley: Plus he's a clone.
Epsilon 1: I am not a clone.
Delta 1: Ok, so if he's a Rei, then you're some sort of bizzaro Shinji. Which means…
Holley: No. Don't.
Delta 1: Epsilon 1's a clone of your father!

*4 hour silence*

Holley: I'm going to kill both of you.

Delta 1: I just listen to my hot mix holo-tape. It fills me with determination and sublime. I'd drop it here, but I'm afraid I would crash the site due to its amazing beats.
Epsilon 1: I wait for orders.

If Space Donald Trump gave you a small loan of a million GTVA dollars, what would you invest it in?

Holley: I'd build the most monster computer rig ever, it would be capable of running all the games at once, in perfect 192k 360-vision. And a new chair or something. If there's anything left.
Delta 1: You know you have to pay back the money right? It's a loan.
Holley: What if I use Epsilon 1 as collateral?
Epsilon 1: ...
Delta 1: With that money I think I'd fund my own indie-campaign. It'd be very low key, low scope but high on the emotional scale. Tender stories forgotten in the tides of galactic upheaval...
Meddy: The start of my own fashion empire. I've already got a lot of good ideas. No, not just good. GREAT. Everyone in the galaxy will soon be wearing the high point of fashion. I'd have that loan paid off in a week.
Sherry: I would look into constructing a library to house the nearly forgotten works of art from humanity's past.
Holley: What like, Super Mario Brothers?
Sherry: Perhaps... it was culturally significant at the time. But I was more thinking of... less interactive works of art.
Delta 1: Oh, like Die Hard?
Sherry: ...
Lt. Cmdr. Obvious: I would put it in a bank!

Inferno
WiH act 4
BWO

JAD 2.22

Holley: JAD2.22 will never be released. Not while Axem wastes his time playing historically inaccurate World War 2 naval games or scrolling through cat gifs all day... So I'm going to say... Wings of Dawn act 2! I can be cast as Dawn's suddenly appearing sister who has jumped through time to guide her on her epic quest.
Delta 1: Unlike some unbelievers, I think we have a good shot at releasing sometime this year. But my inside sources also tell me that Between the Ashes is pretty close to release as well. Might be hard to say...
Holley: But we can all agree that BWO will be released last, right?
Sherry: Now Holley, there is no reason to be mean. We are all in this struggle for creative expression together.
???: Oh ho ho ho. Look at these crummy peasants, they know not of my secret plans to shock them all!
Holley: Who was that?
Meddy: Couldn't be anyone important...

Vassago-chan. Just wanted to let you know that you're beautiful just the way you are and not fat at all. Seeing you warms my heart above 27000 degrees.

Title: Re: Submit your Fanmail!
Post by: Axem on March 03, 2016, 10:29:33 pm
What is your favourite upgraded weapon?

Holley: Well, while I am a big fan of any and all upgraded weapons (except for the Prometheus R upgrades, which are really like downgrades), I have a particular preference to the Maxim Destruction and Not Heaven's Fire for the sheer amount of amazing looking destruction.
Delta 1: Mine is the-
Holley: But then we also need to look at the raw stats of each one to objectively identify the most superior weapon.
Delta 1: Uh...
Holley: Technically by raw stats, the Maxim Destruction does indeed have the highest DPS (444), but it does draw a lot of power and has the pitfall of having its continuous damage decrease due to low FPS (making it unusable in the Battle of Endors)
Delta 1: Okay so anyway-
Holley: Now, the next highest is the STARLANCE!! at 429 DPS. However its a lot harder to use it since it requires a maximum Berserk level and the unupgraded version really does suck. (3 second firewait, what is this, Neo-Communist Russia?!)
Delta 1: ...
Holley: Now the Kaiser Gun, upgrades right away, pierces shield, 333 DPS, AND EMP! Even with the relatively high energy consumption (not quite Maxim Destruction scale of course), its a pretty wicked weapon.
Delta 1: ...
Holley: What do you think?
Delta 1: I don't think I've ever see you use detailed statistics like this before.
Meddy: If only she put this much energy into math class...
Holley: Ah, Energy/Damage efficacy is another interesting point! Sherry, assemble some graphs!

Epsilon 1: For primary weapons: damage, rate of fire, and energy consumption. For secondary weapons: damage, rate of fire, and ammo size.

Holley: Nagari is very different from the force! Nagari is like having special ears that only let you hear specially tunneled quantum transmissions! There's no telekinesis and the telepathy you may see between Noemi and Ken is actually a lot more nuanced than you might initially think! It's probably more accurate to say that Nagari is like an audio transmission, except you have momma Vishnu listening to everything you say (and sometimes whispering things into your ear) and pop-pop Shiva tell you to quiet down all the time (or he's going to burn your house down)!

And instead of surrounding, illuminating and binding the galaxy together, it sure seems to make people a lot less fun. Have you heard Sam ramble on about destiny and the philosophy of a great psyche? And don't get me started about old man Bei...
Delta 1: ...
Holley: What?
Delta 1: Sometimes you're a real big nerd.
Holley: Take that back!!
Delta 1: So about the bonus question...
Holley: I find that question disturbing. I mean Laporte is pretty cool. I'd love to meet her and get her autograph! Discuss stuff like combat tips and how to get vengeance on those who wronged us. But are we that much similar?
Delta 1: Well you're both female, you both fly fighters, you both have imaginary friends...

But which one? There's Alpha 1 The Great War hero. Alpha 1 the Hades Killer. Alpha 1 The vanguard of GTVA during Capella. Those are just the real Alphas (af) to Holley...then you have the side orders of Alpha 1s. Alpha of the 47th Red Shirts incident. Alpha 1 of some campaign with do with a user name Axem (which was a few...2-3 I think Alphas there). I couldn't think of Alpha 1 being an ancient during that whole mess long time ago with the Shivans...that's quite a 'sliver fox' you would have there. Plus sometimes The Vasudans would get called Alpha 1...

Holley: I, of course, talk about the great hero Alpha 1 currently employed to save the universe from danger. There is indeed a long line of Alpha 1s. Some have retired, some have disappeared under mysterious circumstances, some have sacrificed their lives to save countless others. But there is only 1 position of Alpha 1, and that is meant to be the best of the best of the best! Why would I want to settle for anything less? I mean, sure, he might be older. But I'll get older too! I mean he can't be that old, who would let an old man save the universe?

Wait a moment...

We know that Alpha One, The Lucifer Hero was been stranded in Sol after killing that red bastard.
We also know that the four Vasudans from Epsilon wing joined the Fedayeen after the event (Epsilon 1, the name makes me wonder...)
And Alpha 1 is actually mentioned several times in the Dreamscape, as being one of the first known Nagari sensitives...
And well, we *could* assume that most of the pilots who attacked the Lucy also joined the Fedayeen...
Al-Da'wa is a very experienced and able commander, the best one UEF has got...

Holley, have you ever considered the possibility of your beloved Alpha One actually being Al-Da'wa, thus being several thousand people? That might pretty much wreck your plans for the future... :nervous:

Wait a moment...

We know that Alpha One, The Lucifer Hero was been stranded in Sol after killing that red bastard.
We also know that the four Vasudans from Epsilon wing joined the Fedayeen after the event (Epsilon 1, the name makes me wonder...)
And Alpha 1 is actually mentioned several times in the Dreamscape, as being one of the first known Nagari sensitives...
And well, we *could* assume that most of the pilots who attacked the Lucy also joined the Fedayeen...
Al-Da'wa is a very experienced and able commander, the best one UEF has got...

Holley, have you ever considered the possibility of your beloved Alpha One actually being Al-Da'wa, thus being several thousand people? That might pretty much wreck your plans for the future... :nervous:

<Or we could just make several thousand of your clones, but I really doubt that the Universe could endure that... :nervous:>

Dude! Don't give her any ideas!

:cool: How deep does the rabbit hole goes, Holly?

Holley: Shut up! Shut up! You're all just jealous that unlike you pathetic loveless nerds, that I actually have a future waiting for me! I don't need to take any of your skepticism or harassment! What have you ever done that was productive to the world?! Furthermore-
Meddy: -Holley will be taking a brief break from answering fan mail because this chocolate bar just appeared for her!
Holley: MINE!
Sherry: We believe this best for all parties involved.

But I think we should make the fact that the universe you know as "Just Another Day" is completely separate from other universes. Doctors Paul Forth and Alice Wuhl found that the proliferation of alternate dimensions comes as a result of large breaks in subspace. As you can observe, there are large amounts of universes that have split around the times of the Sol node cataclysm, the GTD Hades incident, and most especially the destruction of Capella. These alternate universe are separated by a field of intense energy, termed the Forth-Wuhl, after their discoverers, that makes traveling between them almost next to impossible. While sometimes these universe may have anomalies that allow partial intersection (the Rachmann-Mandho vector) (which also may explain your Bosch Beer inquiry), for the most part, these remain entirely isolated. Unless you have the power of a being that could be termed a god...

FRED was one such being and created many holes in our Forth-Wuhl field and as such we were able to pick up transmissions and allowed us to follow the events of other universes. Our GTVA used this intelligence to create a large selection of simulated campaigns to train military pilots. Entertainment companies picked up on this and began to commercialize them.

Holley: *munch munch* So wait, the Sam Bei I was trying to buy a Balor from...?
Sherry: Probably not the real thing, I'm afraid.
Holley: And when Delta 1 claimed to be related to his "Great Great Uncle Mackie" and "Uncle Nehru"...?
Delta 1: ...Okay, maybe they were just the actors playing them... But those are still honored roles!
Holley: Uh-huh...

To everyone that isn't going to go Supernova about Alpha 1 anymore:

Paper or Plastic?

Holley: Holopaper.
Delta 1: Nanoplastics, son.
Sherry: Paper books, while a rarity now, are certainly very interesting, so I would need to choose that.

Light or Dark?

Holley: Dark stuff is cool!
Meddy: Light casts judgement on all sinful!
Harriet: Mmhmm!
Holley: Y-yeah, light's... cool...

Romeo or Juliet?

Delta 1: Juliet of course...
Meddy: Both, they would've made the best pairing had they lived...
Holley: Which one turns into a robot?

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Holley: Chocolate.
Delta 1: Chocolate.
Meddy: Chocolate.
Sherry: Chocolate.
Harriet: Mmhmm!
Beta Testers: Chocolate.
Mysterious Unrevealed Character: Dark Chocolate.
Other Mysterious Unrevealed Character: Chocolate.
Merv: Chocolate.
Epsilon 1: Vanilla.
Holley: Ruined it...

Elite Dangerous or Star Citizen?

Holley: Star citizen is still to be released, but the good news is the funding goal is at 937 megatrillion creds. So all I can say is... how do I get in on this?

Wax on or Wax off?

Delta 1: Or maybe flying crane kick?

Vorlons or Shadows?

Epsilon 1: Yes.
Holley: Get the heck out of my galaxy!
Delta 1: Are you quoting Sheridan, or talking to Epsilon 1?
Holley: Yes.

Just for the FRED of it: Independence Day Resurgence aliens vs Shivans in some FRED missions. Envision utter lasers everywhere (Shivans can't use Supernova in this duel).

Holley: Shivans still got this. As they are REAL and Independence Day Resurgence aliens are NOT. QED. Ipso facto. End of discussion. Thank you. Except not really.
Sherry: It is rather hard to predict as we have not seen the true potential of either side. By the very fact that the Shivans could cause a star to enter a supernova state shows they must possess untold and unseen technology and expertise.
Meddy: Both are ugly as sin and I will not enter into this at all.

Holley: No refunds! You agreed to forfeit your right to a refund by agreeing to the new TOS by posting in this thread. (By the way we are still waiting for a sample of your blood)

Which characters from jojos bizarre adventure would you guys be?

(Note Axem has only seen the first season so by extension that is all the characters have seen as well!)

Delta 1: I would be Jojo of course, no contest. Just check out these pecs!
Holley: ... Uh huh ...
Delta 1: Maybe Caesar, then? He's got my fashion sense too.
Holley: Maybe Speedwagon.
Delta 1: He does have a pretty good hat. So you'd be, who... Lisa Lisa?
Holley: Of course you'd expect that, but it would be Dio!
Delta 1: Blonde, antagonistic, impossible to get rid of, shouts 'worthless' at people all the time. Yeah that fits.

To everyone who's currently (or recently) been in school:

What are your grades?

Lemme guess: Holley's mostly D's, Delta 1 got straight A's because he's so perfect, and Epsilon 1 gets a consistent B average. Dunno about Holley's friends.


To everyone interested (even minor characters):

What's your favorite indie game?

If you had a Star Citizen budget to make your own game (any genre or medium), what would it be?

Have any of you heard of the Danganronpa series? If so, who's your favorite character, and any other comments you may have?

What do you think of Slaves of Chaos and The Aftermath: Reboot?

Star Trek or Gundam? Why?

Have you ever worked a job? If so, what was it, and any funny stories to share?

To everyone who's currently (or recently) been in school:

What are your grades?

Holley: Do grades really matter that much? I would have thought that in this day and age, those barbaric practices would have been outlawed.
Delta 1: Yeah, I mean if a girl with a D+ average is able to save the universe from destruction, they can't mean that much.
Holley: Hey! >:C
Delta 1: I wish I could say my grades were in the As but my education was sort of rocky since I was moving around a lot and doing commercial shoots. But I did work hard and qualified for the Mehku-Vraxene Corporate Scholarship Investment Maximum Opportunity Benefit.
Holley: How much did you get?
Delta 1: 50 million Zen.
Holley: And that was...
Delta 1: 20 creds.
Holley: Uh-huh...
Sherry: I am sad to report that my grades are below average this year. Instead of my usual A++++, they are only A+++.
Epsilon 1: One year, the teacher forgot to mark all of my assignments and I was forced to repeat a year.
Holley: I wish that could be more surprising.

What's your favorite indie game?

Holley: I guess we're talking super-ultra-actually-retro games that you'd know about, huh? House of the Dying Sun was pretty rad. Though it needs an ending where I could crown myself god-empress for ultra-eternity. Smite everyone with the point of my finger.
Delta 1: Undertale was a masterpiece. Let me explain in detail through my 428 part series... [Rest of response cut for space]
Epsilon 1: I enjoyed Bus Simulator.

If you had a Star Citizen budget to make your own game (any genre or medium), what would it be?

Holley: Robots. Giant transforming robots. Action. Adventure. Plot twists. Explosions. The stars. The stars are calling...
Delta 1: First off, I would make a Star Citizen type game that could actually be made. It would be open world, massively online, you'd be able to do anything. Be an admiral, a janitor, traffic control operator. Anything. Next, the in game economy would be- [Rest of response cut for space again]
Meddy: The most in-depth relationship simulator possible. You could like actually digitize personalities and attempt to make sense out of them.

Have any of you heard of the Danganronpa series? If so, who's your favorite character, and any other comments you may have?
What do you think of Slaves of Chaos and The Aftermath: Reboot?

Holley: They are my games backlog. I may get to it one century, but there's 800,000 other games on there. (I don't know how it is in your time, but typical game bundles are like 1000 games for 5 creds, its such a problem!)

Star Trek or Gundam? Why?

Holley: Gundam! Giant robots >>>>>>>> stupid talking technobabble.
Delta 1: I like them both equally. They both have their strong points. Gundam: a gripping commentary on war and politics, Star Trek: an enlightening vision of a utopian in the stars.
Epsilon 1: I have not watched either.
Meddy: I liked the Gundam one where this beautiful pop star helped defeat those gross looking aliens with the power of song.
Holley: That was Macross.
Meddy: Right, Gundam: Macross.
Holley: (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EPHhMaRwKdY/VeFcLx8QG5I/AAAAAAAATgw/wyXcPmrTLSE/s1600/how-wrong-you-are.gif)

Holley: What, saving the galaxy isn't a job to you?! Maybe I'll just quit trying to be a big hero then, we'll see how you like being ruled over by a giant anger-prone narcissisic idiot that thinks the universe revolved around them.
Delta 1: Uh... Holley...? *Whisper whisper whisper*
Holley: What? Oh... oooooh... That just happened, huh. Uh, anyway...
Delta 1: As alluded to before, I had done a number of regional market commercials. They didn't really pay big, but it was good practice.
Meddy: I work part time at a fashion store on the station. I get a discount on all the latest trends. I routinely try and buy Holley some nicer looking clothes, but for some reason they always seem to end up Harriet's closet... :nono:

Chocolate, vanilla..... strawberry or caramel?

Holley: Chocolate still!
Meddy: Hmmm... I dunno, strawberry is pretty nice...
Sherry: Caramel has its charms.
Harriet: Mmhmm!
Delta 1: If you want my opinion...
Holley: Maybe...
Delta 1: I love all flavors! They are special in their own ways!
Holley: Wow, way to take a stand...

Have you ever broken the SPACE LAW? Have you ever been arrested by the SPACE POLICE for doing so?

Holley: I cannot comment on investigations that are currently on-going.
Delta 1: Well, technically I didn't do anything wrong, but another Delta 1 went renegade and they mistook me for him and so I spent a weekend in space jail. Met some other Delta 1's in there that had the same problem. It turned out to be a good networking session.
Epsilon 1: I took a vow to uphold all laws in defense of the GTVA.

Everyone:

Who or what were your favorite JAD 1-3 characters/segments? Besides Alpha 1, Holley?

It should be noted that JAD 3 technically hasn't happened to these guys yet! But here's some answers anyway.

Holley: I liked the part where ships blew up. That's always fun.
Delta 1: I really enjoyed the one on one duels with FRED. You really had to have your wits about you.
Holley: The disco was pretty revolutionary too, setting the stage for dance tunes in every future mission. Also best non-Alpha 1 character? Terran Command, I guess? He was always there for Alpha 1! Making sure he had up to date information!
Delta 1: ...We played the same campaign, right? I guess my favorite character was Delta 1 in Just Another Day 1, Mission 6. A pro bomber pilot, bravely leading the charge against hostile invaders. It really inspired me!
Holley: Did he actually have any lines?
Delta 1: Actions speak louder than words.

Merv: I like this one. It's our family portrait. Here's a slightly more high quality one for people who haven't seen yet.
(http://lazymodders.fsmods.net/images/family.png)
Holley: Daaaaaaaadddd!!!!!

Anyway... The one behind me in the picture is just my Uncle Alex. He's pretty cool! You'll see him in the next release. Really awesome, kicks a lot of butt and brings me presents! Like awesome weapons to destroy evil nerds with.

Everyone else: If you could swap from flying a tiny, puny space-plane to driving a great big space battlewagon capship, would you?

Delta 1: I'd have to pass, I really enjoy the romantic feel of flying a small agile fighter, just like you're a leaf in the space wind...
Epsilon 1: I too would prefer fighters.
Delta 1: On the other hand, all that responsibility... the prestige... the cute executive officers...
Merv: I used to be a fighter pilot until I transferred to operations command college, with a double major in secret operations. I wish I could share more but... it is all rather classified. Maybe in 45 years. But I did enjoy starship command more though.

Oh my Fred! Just seen the preview and I must say, Alex looks like a total badass. I'm excited to meet him in 2.22. I got to ask: Is he capable of controlling and operating an entire destroyer on his own? I hope someone will get the reference.

Holley: I will tell him you said that! Also Alex does command a capital ship in the next release! He could probably do it by himself, I mean everything is automated these days anyway, right?

Also to Epsilon 1: Was the Aries assigned to you, or did you select it yourself?

Epsilon 1: It was originally assigned, but I have come to be quite accustomed to it. My fighter has been lost in battle several times and I have always requested a new Ares.

To Holley, Delta 1, and Epsilon 1:
Which of the new weapons is your favorite?

Holley: Starlance! Have you seen how awesome it gets with upgrades? I'm just sad it uses sooooo much energy... I also like the Hanabi, so colorful!
Delta 1: The Megadoom Torpedo. The way it explodes almost brings tears to my eyes everytime.
Epsilon 1: Anything that is not the Bubble gun...
Holley: Also be sure to tech out the tech room for all of Holley's WeaponRates!
Delta 1: Yeah, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. Your rating system sucks.
Holley: Why so mad, Dolta?

FIFTH: No!
SEVENTH: Only if you've cleared all the bugs away.

Vasudan admiral captain of the HMS Electrolux: Desert clawbeetles or fish?

Vasudan admiral captain of the HMS Electrolux: Ah! Yes, very good choices. It all depends on which moon is in the Triarchmanidian constellation. Should it be Arkchan within the south west corner, I daresay, that the clawbeetles would bring better luck, but with the 3 months after Tsilmna has just left Triarchmanidia, then fish forecast better financial luck. But not in years divisible by 247, that misstep caused a global recession that led to a total collapse of Vasudan society 1235 years ago.

EIGHTH: Wah hah hah hah... Quite the mystery, isn't it? Storytime, children! I was actually part of that project before, and then after it had finished, I auditioned for the role for the Eighth Beta Tester. They promised me a giant, 5 part stage, ultimate fight with bad-ass music. But they had budget problems in JAD2.21 and cut me down to 5 seconds, but they said they'd make it up in the second part! ... They took forever! No paychecks even! I wasn't on screen enough (they didn't even show my gorgeous face)! Eventually my old project was restarting again, so I jumped ship and... am still waiting to get paid there too.............. (Maybe BP needs a star pilot? Anyone have Darius' number?)

Epsilon 1: But wouldn't a capship be more efficient than a fighter in blowing things up? Don't tell me you're developing a personality! STOP THE PRESSES THIS IS BREAKING NEWS

Epsilon 1: My skills are limited to fighter combat.

In fairness, the berserk system can make fighters a significant threat to capital ships.

Holley: Yeah but the Ares can't use the Berserk system so- wait, no. It... can... use it... Yeeeah.. The Ares just needs to be right next to the ship. Preferably in front of the beam cannons!

Meddy, Sherry, and Harriet:
If you were to look for a replacement to the Loki, what would you choose?

Meddy: I would want something really smooth. Sleek, and bright, colors all over. Good fuel economy, and a expert autopilot. Oh and good seats! Losna looked pretty nice.
Sherry: I would like something with a high quality camera and sensor suite package. Perhaps an Aurora?
Harriet: Mmmmm...
Meddy: Harriet had her eyes glued to the Heartbreaker when it first came out.
Harriet: Mmhmm!

Delta 1: Have you ever considered you are attracting too much female attention for own good? At this rate, you're courting death by swarm of angry yanderes.

Delta 1: (Holley, which one is yandere again?)
Holley: (The ones you want to keep away from knives and other girls)

Anna: Have you ever hacked back in time, just like a time machine? Does it involve connecting an RX modulator to the mainframe and performing a segmentation violation?

Anna: Of course, haven't you? That's one way to do it anyway, there's a few others. Getting kernel access to your system clock with direct access to the ISA bus with multimode HDLC network analyzers synchronized to a 1.21GHz subcarrier wave is another is another one, but that only lets you go back in time in the microsecond range. Still, not bad for avoiding password attempt lockouts.

He could become evil overlor..... err president of the GTVA and ban the media for you.

Holley: Mmmm... not really. As great as Lord-President-Emperor Donaldious Johnothinian Trump I was (he really showed those uppity Canadians who was boss!!), he sort of hoarded all the gold he could in the world and his tower sank into the planet's crust. And his successor clones went pretty mad too. Took awhile for humanity to recover. I'd just put that under "probably not worth the effort". But I have read his many books! I am ready to defend this campaign's honor against untrue and negative fake reviews.

I noticed that when Delta 1 took Anna out to the dinner party, we find out that he holds the rank of Captain in the GTVA. So that brings up two questions. First, whats Epsilon 1's rank and two, probably the more important one. Is Holly actually a member of the GTVA at 17 years old or is she technically an civilian contractor?

Merv: As everyone's supervisor and ranking officer, I feel I can add some clarity. They are actually all lieutenants.

Holley's rank is just a provisional one pending an exam that keeps getting pushed back due to the high school being out of commission. But she did lead a civilian flight group responsible for escorting the elementary students to and from school, so she is not without any qualifications. (However there were a number of times they were many hours late...)

Delta 1 and Epsilon 1 were both participants of the accelerated pilot officer after-school club brought in to bring in more pilots after Capella.

Now I believe the source of the confusion is seeing Delta 1's rank insignia in his dress uniform. In our 'Cohesive Logistics Operation Group' (or CLOG) of the GTVA, fighter corps dress uniform is currently patterned after the early-21st Century United States Air Force uniform, but all GTVA military ranks are derived from the legacy of the United States Navy. Now the insignia for the US Navy Lieutenant and US Air Force Captain are identical. So Delta 1 may appear to have an US Air Force captain-like rank, it is in fact a US Naval lieutenant-like rank (No matter the case, they're still the same pay grade).

Convoluted uniform and rank standards are a proud part of the GTVA's history. They served us well in the 14 Year War when the Vasudans were unable to capture a single captain because they were unsure who the captain actually was. I suggest we all raise a glass to the brave bureaucrats that fought in the Great Interdepartmental Re-Organizational Wars of 2178, 2280, and 2280-b.

Holley: F

Is that "F" something like the "Kids, cover your ears. Hey, Joker..." scene from Mass Effect 3?  :p

Holley: Lyrical Tokarev! KILL THEM ALL!!!! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sU_EA6V2Kes)
Meddy: Cure Happy! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kh14uGcgCs)
Sherry: I much enjoy Cure White (http://prettycure.wikia.com/wiki/Yukishiro_Honoka). She balances her responsibilities of protecting the weak from evil and studying hard for future educational opportunities.
Meddy: Harriet really likes Vita, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iT2HzCg36x0) don't you?
Harriet: Mmhmm!

Holley and Delta 1, you should have a rap battle!

Delta 1: I have a 5 year rapping ban at the moment...
Holley: Good, let's keep it that way.

To anybody: Favorite variety of pizza?

Holley: We did sort of answer this before (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=90509.msg1796502#msg1796502), but we'll let other people answer this too!
Meddy: Mediterranean is nice. Nothing too spicy though.
Sherry: Vegetarian pizza is my preference.
Meddy: Harriet likes deep dish pizza, but we all know that's not a real pizza anyway.
Harriet: :nono:
Anna: I prefer calzones actually. Easier to transport on long missions. They're sort of pizza anyway, right?
Henrietta: Only pizza with the finest toppings, cheese made from the sacred cows of Altair VII, tomatos grown in the garden of the Saint Newell XVI, royal jelly caviar from Beta Centauri XI, and golden peppers harvested in the Vasudan ritual of Silharanhiln, the festival of sound stones. It costs 135 million creds to make a single pizza. I can only bare to have a single slice at a time. The rest goes into the fusion incinerator.

Haxase: You better apologise to all of those people whose spaceships you pushed around at 500m/s, mister! That was very rude and probably broke the speed limit on cruisers, and made everyone inside puke as well! Bad robot! Bad!

Rather, I think such an incident should be brought up as a proposal to the GTVA as a way to further weaponize Colossus hulls.

Merv, if someone were to approach you with an idea like this, what would your opinion be of it? Hyperspacing them into the enemy is one thing, but to use one as a massive Louisville Slugger...

Merv: It's more economical to just construct a hollow Colossus shell, mount a subspace drive inside and have it ram ships upon exiting subspace. A fully armed Colossus may be able to do more damage over a longer period of time, but in terms of in raw damage/credits, the current method of Colossus warfare is the best bang for the buck. An armed Colossus would need to destroy 15.2 destroyers/week to match the effectiveness of the Subspace-Space Impact Method (or Subspace-SIM). (Weapons and crew are actually quite expensive) Using Colossuses as bats were an idea previously explored, but the added requirement of RCS thrusters and fuel pushed cost projections a little too high. We may review that proposal as technology continues to advance.

Merv: Can't you just exploit the rules of nature and have like, an Ulysses dock to a Colossus and have the Ulysses pilot tape down the joystick left?
