Sorry but I don't buy that. Capella would not be business as usual at that time. What traffic there was would be heading straight to the EP and Vega nodes as fasts as it could. The fleet had been decimated. What resources there were would be concentrating for a strike against the Sathanas. Sure they could spread out and find it once the Shivans had jumped out but I don't buy that they'd spot them straight away.
you dont need to buy it, its for free
traffic is traffic, they have sensors and they have eyes.
its irrelevant if they try to escape or fly patrol, if they see a sathanas they called for help and run away so fast they can.
yes the fleet had taken damage in the civil war and in the first encouter of the shivans in the nebular.
but to this time, all remaining, not on their stations needed and necessary ships in the space of the GTVA, are or was at this time on the front.
so i think and if we look in the next missions, theres a lot of capital ships in the system.
No it doesn't. It would experience the exact same acceleration as a cruiser would. And given that it has a higher top speed and acceleration than say a leviathan I'd say that the Sathanas would probably experience less problems if it hid near a a gas giant than some cruisers would.
not only the high-speed is important, the speedup is important too, to escape gravitiy.
if the speedup not high enough to hold against the gravitiy, so you get a problem.
but yes, if the values, comparte to it, the same, then it penterate gravitiy in the exactly way.
but i think theres are other problem too in the atmosphere, but im not really sure about the problem that it caused, i mean the hull-size.
Command have access to your sensors though. They don't need anything else to detect incoming ships.
Anyway the point I was trying to make is that space is vast. If the Sathanas tried to hide it would be much harder to find than you claim. Again I have to point at the Iceni. This time when it managed to get all the way to the Knossos portal without someone spotting it. Even if you buy the argument that command were allowing Bosch to escape it was a really paper thin cover if it's as easy to spot the Sathanas as you say.
sorry but thats like if you play blind cow, you know where the cow was, but then you dont have a glue where she go.
in the war you need the ability to track and fellow escaping enemies.
not only detecting.
yes i know that the space is a big place and that we today have many problems to find asteriods in your sun-system and that they need a minimal size before we can they detect.
and that our solarsystems have a diameter of 3 lightyears (this 3 lightyears are the gravity influence of our sun, if we left that influence then first we left really the sun-system).
but a space ships isnt a death asteriod and if you knowing the starting point, its eaiser to track as if you try to find in a chaotic system one little fuzz.
to the iceni: bosh know how the alliance scanners work and the tactics, so he know the white spots in the system and had can escape.
the other thing is, that he had spy`s on the ships and in important places, so that he gatherer intelligence informations, that him help to plan the next steps.
but shivan doesnt have the same advantages.
yes they have better sub-space engines and they have better sensors.
