I think the Aquitaine is supposed to have gone through the node in the previous mission while you were busy protecting the Bastion.

Its probably going through repairs or probably crushing any leftover NTF/Shivan forces still present.

It got destroyed in the supernova, and the "crew of the Aquitaine" that Petrarch was addressing happened to be the 20+ crewmen that had gotten away in the one escape pod. :D

No, seriously, I think it was in Vega or Eps. Peg. during the whole thing. Otherwise it would have been kicking Shivan *** near the Vega node.

I think it was probably in Vega, since the Epsilon Pegausi node was collapsed very soon after the GTVA decided to abandon Capella to the Shivans.

Of course, I also think the Bastion was deployed from inside Capella, as crazy as that sounds. There isn't much sense in the Red Alert to the other node otherwise.

Which makes sense, considering how the jump node said "Epsilon Pegasi" and not "Capella" in the CotTII.

Probably in Capella/Vega, since Petrarch was giving you briefings and such.

It was probably in Vega when Capella actually went nova, standing by to take care of any cruisers/fighters that made it through the node.

It says something like that.


well then why is 3rd fleet headquarters in capella?

It's a plot hole.  If you question it too much something bad is gonna happen.

Er... no, in the first command briefing, Loukakis says 4th fleet is in Vega, not 3rd.

4th fleet = Vega, 3rd fleet = Capella. Or at least that was the case before Capella went kablooie.

I always kinda figured the Aquitaine and the (few) survivors of the 3rd fleet made it to Vega. What I'm wondering is just where the 3rd fleet relocated to after '67, since having two fleets based in the same system is redundant.

3rd Fleet was probably disbanded and it's ships sent to other fleets.

Aquitane didn't replace the Bastion. Just that the squadron was based on board the Bastion during the Great War - it moved to the Aquitane later, whether ages ago, during a great fleet restructuring, or recently, when the Bastion was decommissioned.

At the rate they lose people, the promotion rate should be through the roof. How else do you explain going from a noob fighter pilot to the head of an elite squadron in a month?

Loukakis's Diary

7:00 am - New Pilot came aboard today, showed him the ropes in the training sim.

8:00 am - Lt. Commander Smash died in a meat grinder accident. I got promoted!

9:00 am - Commander White quit, mumbled something about wishing us a supernova. I'm a Commander now!

10:00 am - Okay, so the Captain seems to have vanished. I will now call myself Captain Loukakis!


There perfect sense. Some people just advance faster than others.

The fleet units from Capella were probably used as replacements for all the ships lost in the other fleets.

Fascinating Reci Fact #324
Out of about 5 different storylines I wrote, every one involved the Aquitane getting waxed during it's last tour of duty before decomissioning.  Including during the decom' ceremony itself.
