Something I was thinking about while watching the FS1 intro.
[glow=red]Oh God, they're following me! Mayday! This is Lieutenant Ash on Terran Patrol, Wing Gamma, three-niner![/glow]
Has anyone considered FREDing the Ross 128 attack as a precursor to the main FS campaign?
[glow=green]Calm down, sir. Who attacked you? Was it the Vasudans?[/glow]
[glow=red]Vasudans were killed, too! They slaughtered everyone![/glow]
The intro movie clearly shows at least two cruisers in the vicinity of the GTI Riviera, along with the station's fighter compliment, and while they're admittedly no match for the Lucifer, there's the potential for some action there. After all, part of the mission script is already there...
[glow=green]Pilot, sit tight! We're sending recovery craft right now![/glow]
[glow=red]Send FIGHTERS! I... I know they're following me, send everything you have, now![/glow]
It's not necessary, of course, since the intro itself conveys a part of the scene very well, but since we have a Tombaugh Station mission now, I thought that for completeness's sake, it might be a fun idea.
[glow=green]Sir, I don't have anyone else on scope! You're home free, it's going to be all right![/glow]
[glow=red]No it isn't! You don't understand! You weren't there! I can feel them following me...[/glow]
So... any takers?
[glow=red]Oh my God, I'm dead! We're all dead![/glow]
