Oh... You're on escort for a cruiser when the node somehow phases out and you get trapped in an unknown system on the edge of space... ;7

...Where you discover that the Shivans are just the servants of a much more powerful, utterly evil race of beings with a twisted sense of humor.. or something.

Well, they sent and entire destroyer through... Isn't that just a *little* risky?

Not necessarily. Destroyers have more room for drive gear and so might be able to better stablize their own subspace tunnel. Most people associate stablity and shipsize but that may not be how it works. Larger ships might even have it easier.

And when the ship is destroyed, it takes the node with it... :shaking:
I was always a bit annoyed when I played Homesick and it said if a cruiser or corvette went down, so did the node  :blah: (destroyers made a bit more sense). I always thought that the Lucifer destroyed the Sol node because of its volatile reactors :nod:.

Albiet IIRC the FS Reference Bible suggests that the Ancients believe the very act of combat in subspace can collapse the node.

How so?  The only instance of combat in subspace collapsed 1-3 nodes.

I don't remember that...

Yeah, the combat didn't knock the subspace node down, all five of the Lucy's reactors going supercritical did.  Notice the node didn't collapse whilst the Shivan fighters etc were blowing up.

"Whoa, I don't think subspace likes explosions."

Derelict kind of played with the idea that subspace wasn't made for combat though.

Aye. That was cool having those shockwaves from just fighters. Too bad the next wings didn't blow up like that though.
