I'd argue with the Erinyes, but only to support the Ares.

The Vasudan theory on small craft seems to be small and fast (i.e. Anubis, seth, Bakha, Sekhmet)  But the larger ships seem to have more armour.

Terran Small Craft seem to be heavier (Loki, Ursa, Boanagres(sp?)) and Lighter Capships with higher firepower.

The erinyes always struck me as a very Vasudanized terran ship. Like the Ares. Or Myrmadon.

Huh?

Deimos > Sobek :p

I'd still give it to the Shivans however....not only are most of there ships rather fearfull and intimidating (not to mention overall simply better), they would utterly be a goddamn Terror if it wasn't for the dumb AI!

Why does everyone keep saying that? Only people who have never seen the headz video, I guess.

The Vasudans collect headz. They put them in boxes, and the one in the video doesn't quite know what do do with it, so he uses it as a decoration.

Please note that this debate is not about numbers, but which race builds the best ships.


You obviously missed the core part of the story........

Obviously, lots of ppl are going to vote for the Shivans since they've got a gargantuan arsenal of Sathani.  Also, because they're so mysterious... :nervous:

This question is retarded.

The mere concept of superiority is very objective.

I really don't care as long as something doesn't show up in the night, next to my bad to claim my....whatever (read too much H.P. Lovecraft on a single night.)

:yes: Couldn't agree more.
I voted for Terrans, but in reality I generally hate humans. A funny thing, eh? ;)

That should be a poll option.
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!
