Well its tough to say what the favorite cap ship is since i have so many. Orion,Hecate, Iceni, Hatshepsut, Sobek Deimos Ravana They all have theyr goodpoints and theyr badpoints. The Demon i dont like since well lets just say that ships is like an Orion with its beams on steroids or something.

An ideal warship would be an Orion or Iceni with shivan beams....!

The Orion is the Beste representative of terran might and glory. That ship gives you goosebumps when you see it.   

The Hecate looks kinda more powerfull and awesome but its weaponty sucks big time.

The Iceni well now the Iceni is the Iceni super fast super strong hull and an awesome can of woopass . But it really needs shivan beam cannons or faster firing beam cannons  by at least 50% in order to be truely deadly.

The Hattie well cool ship i like it but somehow doesnt really inpire fear to me not ion the way the Orion does or the Deimos.

The Sobek that ship is sleek and deadly i mean its like a beutiful butterfly that say "Come on closer i wont bite " then gives you the hurt of your life.

The Ravana well the Ravana is the ravana come at it in anithing larger then a bommber from the front and you are toasted my fired. Come at it with anithing smaller then a cruiser from the flanks or the rear and you will win very hard(time wise)i mean that thing can be taken down by a cruiser from the flanks or the rear.


The deimos and the Aeolus are like "Oh man id rather be fighting shivans then those 2 beasts.

I mean the only real fault with the Deimos and the Aeolus are again they beam cannons that are much too weak. Other then that......well....they kick asss.
Die shivan die!!
Then jumps into his apple stealth pie and goes of to war.What a brave lad....what a brave lad say the ladies in red.

Back in the day the Fenris was a cool ship, the Orff especially. They wandered contested systems and projected power, defended cargo depots, took out assets... but beams made them decidedly uncool.

The Deimos corvette is just a nice ship; like a modern version of the Fenris. I want to go watch a BSG inspired movie about the crew of one.

The Orion is the coolest from a 2.1 kilometers of whoop ass point of view.

The Aeolus is pretty cool too. It's two puny beams make me sad though.

The ORION IS the PRIDE of the GTA ! And will forewer stand as a simbol of terran might and kindness.

Why kindness cuz when faced with an enemy he has but 2 choises he either surenders and lives his life in prison or He faces the Orion. I call that mercifull and simple. And since only and Idiot (or the shivans) would dare challenge the mighty Orion Most of the time the enemy surrenders or rather should surrender. The fact that the Orion makes the enemy face the 2 most simple and ONLY choices sparing him the anguish and torment of thinking too much well i call that mercifull.


I mean what if he gets a brain tumor or goes bananas fropm all the stres of tryng to figure out what to do? :P

sure it is whats better for the enemy to go bananas from stres or to die/surrender depending on his convictions. I mean it simplifies the number of choices he has to consider .

And how frequently will the enemy actually go bananas?

Well  when you have the mother of all terran warships guns glowing and ready to fire heading straight for you , you dont actualy have time to go bananas since you are either dead 5 seconds later or you surrender. As for gooing bananas an enemy that is hunted and put under cosntants preaure and stress will crack and go play ina sand box. It all depends. However the Orion can be used in a mission of mercy to help bring peace to the suffreing ...eternal peace that is.

Bu that the Orion bring to the battlefield and not just the battlefield is that sence of pride and safety. For a while at least. while it is reasuring to know the most powerfull GTVA wearships is parked outside your station you normaly get a bit scared when that ships doesnt seem to leave... ! As the famous quote says .

Hell the Orion doesnt even have to fire a single shot at the enemy or enter combat the fact that it is THE symbol of terran might and tech skill is enough to make most enemyes think twice before taking it on. Exept for the shivans and well the fanatics.

Also there is somethin sexi about that boxy looking 2 km long monster...dont ask me what i wasnt my idea  MY GF said that the boxy grey'sh/blue'ish looking thing is kinda sexy in a strange way.


So can we get any more females around these here places to veryfi this testament...??Frankly i believe my GF is gooing chuchu with this one but hey what do I know ...... So seriously any more females around here??? Even vasudan ones would do just fine.

umm shhhhhh dont go there or you will get the most horrific and disturbing picture posted in here. I mean i had to go to caounceling for 2 weeks just to loose th fear of gooing near a terran woman . That thing was out of this world. I mean ive seen some pretty sick stuff but that just beats them all.

On the other hand ...reember the post with the mercy missions of the Orion? We can always have an Orion beamazoid the frack out of the author of that picture and the picture itself . I mean that would be mercifull woudnt it???

Funny, when I look at the Orion, I see an old ship ready to be mothballed as soon as a newer destroyer comes out.

Ravana 'caus thats a fine lookin' ship, and no other destroyer beats out its forward firepower.

Orion, because its just awesome like that.. and ide rather have an Orion comeing in for backup than a Hecate.
