Why are there over 3 million votes on this poll?
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

I can see how this is going to go:

Raa makes a new option saying "Vasudans are teh win, Snufflepaugus are teh Suck". Goob bans Raa. Goob Laughs.
"You shot me in the bollocks, Tim"
"Like I said, no hard feelings"

You can pretty much guess who I voted for. The Shivans have some pretty mean ships, but I have to go with our fish wuving allies. Besides, I think they're pretty pissed their planet was destoyed.

Yeah, well, since there were only 24 Aeolus made, and ~20 destroyed... I'll worry about that later :p

errr...I'd think that more would be made after the Great war, considering how effective they were and whomever was in charge of the stupid battle plan would get replaced :p

No...... they weren't. Not if 20/24 were destroyed.. they weren't very effective at all.

That's because Terran command is retarded, not because of some kind of design flaw.  The only time you ever see an Aeolus in anything resembling an anti-fighter role is when the three of them are defending the Bastion from overwhelming numbers of Shivan bombers.  The rest of the time, they were either destroyed by ambush or used in an anti-capital role, where cruisers in general suck.  I need not remind you how many Mentu-class cruisers we see that weren't summarily destroyed.

Eh, I'm just reiterating the nature of good terran ships; they tend to excel in the smaller things, like fighters, and get progressively worse as the ship gets larger.  The break-even point for the Vasudans is the Corvette, above which they dominate.  For Terrans, it just goes downhill from the Deimos; Hecate, and the mother of all suckage, the Colossus.

The colossus is partly vasudan also, after all it was their emperor's fault the colossus was being build! :p

Oh the Aeolus was a very effective ship. It was excellent as an escort vessel.

Terrans only have alpha 1, because it's from a Terran POV. If the Vasudans were as lame as you say, the Terrans would have eliminated them in the V-T war. But no, The terrans launched Operation Threshar, and lost more pilots than I care to mention. And gained no ground.

So, to quote Blitzerland... "You fail."


You've proven what here, exactly? That one Terran plan went badly?

And Alpha 1 Regularly wipes out as many fighters as were lost in Thresher per 1/4 of a Campaign. :p

Also, who's planet was bombed back to the stoneage, again? ;p

In any case, it's irrelevant, since I voted Shivans.

One? Hmm. There was the 'capturing the Taranis' which led to Tombaugh being decimated. There was the 'let's go into the nebula' which enticed the shivans to nuke Capella. (Bosch is Terran, after all)

Alpha 1 is a moot point. I was alpha 1, and I have a Vasudan pilot image. :p It doesn't matter that the Vasudan wingmen kept saying 'Terran' They were talking to alpha 2 :p

And by FS2, who's race had the largest economic growth?

Who found the data the ancients left that saved Sol?

And who's had the single largest influence on Terran Ship Designs?

Uh-huh. You're just an anti Vasudan bigot :p ;)

The Aeolus is the best terran/vasudan cruiser.  It has 3 SGreens, a bunch of flak and AAAF beams in place of a bunch of crappy laser cannons.  In fact, it has only one terran huge laser.

The third demo mission has an Aeolus against a rakshasa and a moloch.  The capships fire at the aeolus until you get to the mission site, and the rakshasa dies right when you start the mission.  The Aeolus dies when the Moloch is at ~80%, but that is not bad for a cruiser fighting a cruiser and a corvette and killing the cruiser.  Remember, the Aeolus is being hit by four SReds, and is only firing two of its SGreens.

You MIGHT have a point...if the Terrans had been planning to lure the Lucifer. But no, the Plan was to Capture the Taranis. And it succeeded. What resulted from it is irrelevant, as the Plan itself was a success.

You were also based on the Aquitaine. You were part of the Terran/Vasudan exchange program. You were the leader of Terran Wings.

The portrait only matters when it comes to Multi. And I have a Terran Portrait :p

A group full of Vasudan scientists that somehow managed to strand themselves on some planet in the ass-end of space?

Tough one, though I'd have to say it's the Terrans. :p

You're seriously not worth arguing with. You can't even lose the bold tags in between quotes. :p EDIT: Ok. Sure. Fix it now...

Anyway, it's not worth it any more.
