Actually the scorpion DOES jump, eventually. It lingers around for 2 minutes after the Plato's pod runs away, but then it leaves, itself, assuming it hasn't been brutally slaughtered by you and your Furies.

Ah ha! Here's another quiz by me:

1. What was the last major GTA vessel to be destroyed at the hands of the Shivans before the PVE and the GTA officially declared war on them?
2. What is the name of the Fenris-class cruiser that is patrolling around Riviera Station in the FS1 intro? (Note: In the intro it is mistakenly designated "GTT" instead of "GTC".)
3. At which battle was the GTD Goliath lost?
4. How was the Goliath destroyed?
5. How far out from Knossos 2 does the Psamtik arrive, in the mission in which it dies?
6. In Exodus (FS1), what type of fighter does Pi wing fly?
7. What is the GTFR Miranda's cargo?
8. In "Reaching the Zenith", what is the name of the HOL cruiser that attacks you?
9. How many anticap beams does a Hecate have as standard?
10. What wing does the GTCv Parapet send to help you in "Enter the Maelstrom"?

I've only played FS2 (I know, I know  ) but #5 & #10 are...
The Psamtik arrived 9000 meters from Knossos #2 and
I think the Parapet sent you Zeta wing (yea right, I don't even know if I'm thinking of the right mission).
But I'm sure about the Psamtik

Mal: This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then... explode.

Yes, it was about 9 km for the Psamtik, and Theta wing.

Now someone answer the FS1 questions!

Okay since my questions seem to be stumping you (or you're just not caring), here are the answers:

1) GTD Amadeus (lost from the 3rd Fleet in the Vega system)
2) GTC Van Buren (The console on the Riviera says so. Even though it says GTT, it is quite clearly a cruiser icon.)
3) Battle of Rexias 4
4) Some Vasudan Anubis pilots went kamikaze. Luckily some of the Goliath's crew got out in escape pods.
5) about 9 km
6) GVF Horus
7) Dravis' Diary (This was in the supernova mission of FS2, I'm surprised no one got this.)
8) Benedict
9) 5: 2 front, 1 rear, and 1 to each side.
10) Theta wing flying GTF Perseus fighters.
