You got that right. There was one mission in FS1 I remember where the Lucifer is owning some poor Arcadia and you're instructed to defend a little Faustus untill the PVD Hope can get into position. I always play on Insane... and the only way to get those Dragons is by hitting them once with a Phoenix. *shudders* They're impossible... well, almost.

I went for the Terran Mara. Speed, armour, Kaysers, based on a Shivan design. It's got everything. :D

Mara.

Being a Shivan fan, it's the closest I can get to the real thing without TBL hacking!

(I did that once and was flying a proper Mara in The Lion's Den. 'Twas a lot of fun!)

Perseus. Great speed and maneuverablity and not too shabby hull/shields. And nice wings to.

A close second is the Erinyes. Nothing like linking Morning Star and Maxim in multiplayer and letting him have it.:D

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

heh, I'm late, but the hell with it. Out of that list, not including other (if other, the Seph is my favourite. Or maybe the Tauret, it's got massive secondary capacity), my vote would go to the GTF Ulysses. For some reason I just love it. Don't ask ^_^

the perseus is my fighter of choice, call me a newb (this is my first post) but I love the way she handles, and the way she zooms to a target.
