"Production was discontinued when the GTA thought they would win the Vasudan war after the Battle of Gulnara, and then the production was started up again after the defeat at the Talania system."

What info do we have?

any theories?

Gulnara is im pretty sure a planet or moon in antares.

Edit: Actually, Gulnara may be a planet in the Vasuda System. the GTA Captured Gulnara, giving them a foothold in the System, placing them in prime position to  strike at Vasuda Prime.

Talnia...look at the entry on FSWiki about that system.

Talnia was in my opinion a very important Supply/Factory system. The Battle crippled the Terran Supply Lines, prolonging the war

Interesting, where did you read about the foothold part?  I think I remember it.

Could it be possible that Deneb housed the planet?  Terrans had Vega which also led to Deneb, according to the Fs2 Intro the Deneb has human settlements

It's just my theory.

As far as i know, there isnt anything about which system Gulnara is actually in.
Since Terrans winning the TBoG left them in a position to assume that they'd win the war, I postulate Gulnara is in Vasuda or Antares.

If it's not in Vasuda then I suspect it's in a system with access to Vasuda... Antaries or Deneb both do.

The reason I think Deneb is because the Vega engagements was the first sighting of the Typhoon, now there are alot of details unknown such as: did 4th fleet retreat to Beta Aquilae (5th fleet?) or did it re-assemble and eventually took Deneb which would make sense for a Battle of Gulnara, because the Terrans now had access to Vasuda.  BUT by 2335 the first animation reveals both Vega AND Deneb under Vasudan control. Assuming it took alot of time to construct more Typhoons (at least 4) there was quite a bit of time between the animation and Vega engagements.

Thoughts?

There is no evidence as to what "Gulnara" is.  It could be anything from a planet or moon to the name of some guy involved for all we know.  There is no way to know one way or the other.

Talania is even more of a mystery.  It isn't on any node map that we know of (I know, I've looked, I've sworn I've seen it, but nothing).

Most likely, each battle bracketed a major push into Vasudan space, possibly featuring the invasion of Vasuda Prime itself.  Again, there's no evidence that this is true.  We just don't know.

My theory basically make Gulnara a moon in Antares that the battle happened near.  I won't make any arguements for Talania though (I still want it to be a full blown system).

I read somewhere that Talnia appeared on an early FS system map. But that that early version quickly disappeared.

I say Gulnara was a moon/planet in Antares/Vasuda that had a major battle that occured over(and possibly on) it....

I think i'll stick with my theory of it being in Vasuda

Gulnara is a Vasudan religious holiday.

I know this is fact because of my learnings.

I was hoping Eishtmo would join the conversation.  Ok, I get your point I wont push it any further. 

Talnia is in Silent threat... isn't it?

No its not. We know it exist. from the Tech room DB. Nut beyond that - nothing. The missing Talnia system is the FS Atlantis/Magrathea/Lost City(from Stargate)

Just checked on Silent Threat, your right... ok

I don't know where I got that from.  But I realized that the first mission starts in Vega then jumps to ??? from there jumps to Beta Aquilae.  Since there is an gap I guess I fabricated it, but I could of swore when playing the port the jump node used to say Talnia instead of jump node 0 lol

I always thought that it went Vega -> Antares -> Beta Aquilae, via the Vega-Antares Node seen in one of the Command Briefing Ani files. Hopefully this will be cleared up in Silent Threat: Reborn. We're Just waiting for them to finish Voicing it.

I went of this, which shows a direct route to Beta Aquilae.  Silent Threat did a Vega -> ??? -> Beta Aquilae

CB_starmap04 ani shows a Vega -> Antares -> Beta Aquilae.  This is interesting...

It did actually. :) And for the same reasons you said.  But we took that out in 3.0 because we wanted to present Silent Threat in all its unpolished glory. :D
