Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Now that I do agree with.

The ships always being on the same plane I put down to :v: lacking any imaginative use of the y-axis.

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
a fighter, maby...but for a capship....no. Every time a capship jumps it fill the whole damn node when it does so.

If that is true, than the Sathanas is oversized. :drevil:

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Except that the exit/entrance portal is in the center of a node.

And IIRC, there is no canon confirmation if one can enter a node from 10 different angles.

Wrong.

In fact, the same mission in FS1 provides proof of both.

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
And even if all Saths used the same exit vector you only need to wait the time it takes a Sathanas to travel the 6km length of a Sathanas between sending them through. You'd end up with a conga line of Sathanases in GD but it's perfectly feasible.

If it was all that easy, why did some of them remain behind :confused:

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Well, maybe the Saths have an ability similar to a Knossos portal, so a few had to stay behind to keep the node stable, whilst the rest went through?

 
Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Yes, I know, but it's a question to kara. He said that it was an ordinary intra-system jump instead of a supernode. I can't imagine why some would have remained behind, if it was all that easy.

 
Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Because they were still doing something to the star. The ones that remained behind were obviously keeping the process going, whatever that process may have been. It may have been totally unrelated to jumping anywhere at all.

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Or maybe they just broke down and the rest of the fleet prioritized getting their arses out of there instead of helping the malfunctioning ships.

You're asking the wrong question. If you believe that they couldn't get out of the system the question is not "Why did some remain behind?" the question is "Why did any of them jump out?"

Yup, exactly, there's so little that can actually be assumed from that scene, and Petrarchs opinions are, in truth, no more valid than our own.

I DO think that they could have left the system (except for the ones that overpowered and broke down), but NOT through the GD node. The Saths escaped through a supernode, in which they all fitted nicely.

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Sometime we should have a discussion on Capella where the concept of a supernode is considered forbidden. :p It'd be interesting to come up with some (probably convoluted and utterly unrealistic) new theories on what happened, rather than rehashing ideas from eight years ago like a bad Stargate episode.

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Fine, can you come up with a theory which explains the happenings in the cutscene better and with less inconsistencies than the supernode theory?

Hmmh, no major inconsistencies, everything is fitting into the game context. This must be the best Shivan theory ever! :P

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
The shivans did it for pure "WHAT THE F**K?!" Value to see how we'd react - by we i mean the GTVA. Capella was a massive reaction test.

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
The various cutscene narrators make too many conflicting assumptions to rely on what they say as fact. It's canon that they said it, but we can't say it's fact.

Re: Is the GTVA pinned to subspace?
Here's a non supernode theory.  They saw that their experiment or whatever they were doing to the star went wrong and jumped to the GD node, where they promptly got the heck out of Capella.  :D

In addition to your theory, they were trying to chage the star's spectral type. but it went wrong
