Re: 'remained behind so that others might reach the Vega node'
There's just one thing: GTVA Command had no idea the supernova would occur, and there is no way Alpha 1 could have known. Rushing to the node to save one's skin is not a decision you can make without knowledge of the supernova.

The first time I played that mission I was so banged up after 3 minutes that I had to orbit around the GTCv and simply order wingmen and throw Trebs around.
I was in a Perseus, so I had no problem reaching the node when s*** hit the fan.

Re: 'remained behind so that others might reach the Vega node'
This is what really happens.

Command: Capella has gone supernova...Godspeed pilots!
A1: That is so ****ing weak command!
Every pilot's goal is to rise up in the ranks and go beyond their purpose to a place of command on a very big ship. Like the colossus; to baseball bat everyone.

I seem to note that "Command" is the guy you see when you run your mouse over Options in the Aquitaine Main Menu. By the time of the supernova, the Aquitaine was ALREADY in Vega (, a [long x 21 126] time ago).

I think we can interpret this to mean that the most important personnel were evacuated first, followed by the civilians. This is SO contradictory to "evacuate all non-essential personnel first", which was what happened in The Sixth Wonder, Argonautica and Dunkerque.

Re: 'remained behind so that others might reach the Vega node'
I never assumed the guy in the menu screen was terran command...it could of been just another african guy.

and do you expect :v: to change the title screen for every mission? that seems like a superficial change to me
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

Eh? No no no, I don't mean that. Of course it would be redundant to change the menu for every mission. I'm just implying that Command already left Capella before the civilians did.

Re: 'remained behind so that others might reach the Vega node'
How about revision?

The guy who is also referred to as "command" in game even though he's just a relay officer: Capella has gone supernova...Godspeed pilots!
A1: That is so ****ing weak command!

Damn pick apart everything. Command is in every system from what everybody can tell. Otherwise you don't get orders. No one knows who that guy is, except that he relays orders from officers to you in the least. You might as well call him command because every other pilot in the game who has a problem says "command, try not shooting those beams in our way". Remind you of the mission with the actium and the lysander? That guy actively gets called command every single time. He's just a relay officer, i'm pretty sure when pilots have a problem and blast out for commands help and decisions they'll probably get some other old relay officer or whatever that guy is who relays the orders and mission peramaters to pilots from command.

Command was apparently on 3rd Fleet HQ in Dunkerque.

It's a decision that makes sense. The GTVA didn't know what was happening with Capella, though they probably had a damn bad feeling which is why they were doing the evacuation with such haste. In the event that any ships got through the blockade, they could save more lives by preventing destruction in other systems and coming up with good plans, rather than having a motley collection of ships and vast gaps in the chain of command.

Hmm...that does make sense now. If there were gaps in Command, then the result would make the situation in Derelict look more like vandalised toilet paper.
