I voted Galatea, but the Bastion made me weep tears of manly joy.

There is the GVD Memphis, even though it was for a (very) short while.

 
Re: Favorite Destroyer (but somewhat different)
I like Vasudans the Psamtik Main Hall, so the GVD Psamtik is my favorite :)

And i was very sad, when this ship was destroyed by another Sathanas.
Shivan here, Shivan there, Shivan everywhere.

My english isn't very well, so sorry for a few mistakes.

Galatea, by far :nod:
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

I don't think that one is worth mentioning, since I forgot about it.

 
Re: Favorite Destroyer (but somewhat different)
Okay, Analysis:
Galatea: First ship you are stationed on, so...
Bastion: Oh gods, people! thats the ship that saved us from being terraformed! so not much votes?
Krios: GTI... silent threat.. I don't think much people like that, atleast one person does.
Soyakaze: ...
Aqautine: Admiral Petrach!
Psamtik: This ship saves you some times during the campaign, perhaps thats why it has more votes then the Aquatine, wich, AFAIK, only appears twice.

Re: Favorite Destroyer (but somewhat different)
I don't know why, but I felt attached to the Galatea. When it was destroyed i was like "NOOOOO!!". and when the Bastion came in i was like [subversive] poser poser poser poser poser [subversive]. I was like "you'll never match the Galatea.

Re: Favorite Destroyer (but somewhat different)
Except the Bastion survived 32 years longer than the Galatea did.

 
Re: Favorite Destroyer (but somewhat different)
20+ of those years it was de-commissioned

Re: Favorite Destroyer (but somewhat different)
I voted for the Psamtik--it saved my butt enough times to make me want it. I was so surprised and went wtf!?? when it went out... anyways the Bastion was also an excellent ship, the final mission sent me goosebumps, like so much of the end of the campaign did. Moments when you just watch and listen, the words and actions of the fictional people is so memorable... this game beats a "great" movie any day.

Re: Favorite Destroyer (but somewhat different)
The Galatea was the best, it was the only destroyer that really felt like home. When the Lucifier destroyed it, I became bent on vengeance.

12- of those years were active duty that the Galatea never saw because it was destroyed. And it's better to be decommissioned than to be destroyed.

I'm voting for the Repulse because a) coolest name, b) Admiral Koth is a crazy badass, and c) I am an NTF fan.
