Since when planets have regular names(not Vasuda Prime, Cygnus Prime, etc. etc.)? Is it possible that Gulnara is a system?

Um Earth is called Earth, not Terra Prime or Solar Prime. THe rest of the planets in Sol

Actually I just remembered reading somewhere that Gulnara was a planet.moon in antares.

Now, there is the equally mysterious Battle of Rexias 4 mentioned in the FS Tech entry for the PVF Anubis,
Any ones got anyidea on that?

I think Rexias is a Gas Giant in Vega, Deneb or B Aquilae. Rexias 4 is the 4th moon around Rexia...A bit like Yavin 4 in Star Wars

What about...Sol is Sol and FreeSpace is Terran-centered?

If you find sources citing those names as the names of moon/planets it's ok. I'm asking if the existance of other pseudo-canon systems is possible. Subspace nodes are volatile, remember?

Hmm... let me look into that one it does sound like a moon.

Edit:  From Wikipedia

Quote
The GTD Goliath was a Terran destroyer that was destroyed by Vasudan kamikaze pilots in the battle of Rexias IV, 12 years prior to the events of FreeSpace 1, during the 14-year war between Terrans and Vasudans. The destruction of the Goliath set the initiative to construct the GTEP Hermes escape pod.
Quote
The Anubis is the weakest fighter in the Vasudan Navy. However, they are extremely cheap to manufacture, and are often used in swarm situations to try to overwhelm the opponent with numbers. A few radical Vasudans have been known to load the ship with explosives and attempt to steer themselves into GTA capital ships. The first occurrence of this was the battle of Rexias 4, where the GTD Goliath was destroyed by a squadron of kamikaze pilots.

What is that 12 years prior reference?  That's early in the war, which could imply that the Anubis could actually be the first fighter used by the Vasudans.

No, the Anubis was probably not the first Vasudan fighter. It was designed to be cheap and as a replacement to the sentry guns which were rather ineffective for their cost. Now, I wonder what the GTD Goliath looks like. It was destroyed by a squadron of kamikaze pilots so I doubt it was as large as the Orion. But it was still classified as a Destroyer so I would say it would be around .5-1.5km in length.

Anubis loaded with warheads + attack in swarms = 1 less Orion...

Plus Command was PRETTY worried when kamikazes tried to make way with the Galatea.

Yeah in that mission if you sit about twiddling your thumbs, the Kamikaze fighters will quickly take down the Galetea

Well, they did try ramming a cruiser into it and I thought that was extreme, but that's nothing compared to the NTF who tried to ram an Orion into the Colossus. I still think the GTD Goliath was an older design. It just seems weird if the Orion was the first generation destroyer.

Is think the Orion was originally intended to be only destroyer the GTA would need. A design that could quickly be upgraded when needed. But things like that dont alway work out. I think the GTD Goliath was one of the first Orions assembled, possibly the 3rd or 4th. And was the first one to be destroyed in theTV War

It does mention the battle of Gulnara

THe battle of Rexias 4 is not metioned at all. The only references to it are in the Tech database entries for the GTEP Hermes (which only mentions the destruction of the GTD Goliath 12 years before FS1) and the PVF Anubis (which specifies that this took place at the Battle of Rexias 4).

Now as i said earlier i believe that Rexias 4 is like Yavin 4 in Star Wars - the 4th moon of a large Gas Giant

For Cardinal Spear I created an additional star system for Talania, which seems to be the adopted meme.

However, Blackwater Operations retconns this into the Talania system being a gas giant system in Beta Aquilae. (Much like the Jovian system) With Talania VIb being one of the major firefights during the Vega Engagement. (which occurred in Betaq and Vega)

For our continuity Gulnara is mentioned as an outer planet in the Vasuda system.

Bah... Wiki is better since it actually "seperates" fact from fiction

Vega Engagement took place in Beta Aquilae too?
