I picked SOC, GTVA - Vasudans and Other. Cause I really can't see my third vote going anywhere. The Vasudans I like cause they're honorable (more or less), and are competent. Can't say the same for GTVA - Terrans. Or intel, for that matter. SOC because they're the ones who always risk their lives out in secret.

Well, noone's forcing anyone to choose 3 options. If someone likes only, for example, SOC, then they can choose only the SOC and nothing else :P

EDIT: Oops. Forgot the Shivans. And the Ancients.

I voted "Other" holding on to that slim ray of hope that there's a competent Command out there.

Pirates... Aren't a faction. Noone cares about them for more than 1 mission in canon. And I honestly HATE the idea that there could be pirates in the FS universe. Well, more pirates than that mission in Silent Threat.

Happy now?  :p

Seriously... Pirates in FreeSpace could be taken down in 1 sweep. They have no way to properly recover after an attack. And if they get attacked by the leading superpowers ( GTA, PVN or GTVA ) they're gone. For good.

I choose GTVA- Terrans, Shivans and Ancients.

I like to think of pirates as not so much criminals as "unauthorized autonomous military organizations".

I went for SOC and GTI rebels, because I reckon they have the best stories, and other for the Aesir from TI :p

I would most prefer the Ancients.

Dunno why, they died but they still seemed quite cool.

And both got great stories.

IMHO this is not an effective poll because you can choose three options... however...

I chose GTA, GTI, and PVN, in that order. All three are infinitely cooler than some pussy GTVA.

I like Plain GTVA....  the speech of morale values that Bei gives in on of the missions of "Blue Planet - Age of Acuarius" was quite inspiring to me ^^

I find it highly ironic that I just started playing Blue Planet.

Moral values? Moral values? Do you recall the ending of BP? You call that moral values? The Daleks have more moral values than the GTVA!!

EDIT -
Come to think of it the GTVA is pretty similar to the Daleks. The intel entry says "BETAC dismantled the governments of the Terran blocs and recognized the General Assembly, the Security Council, and the Vasudan Imperium as the supreme authorities of Terran-Vasudan space." That's more or less stating "THE GTVA IS SUPREME! ALL INFERIOR GOVERNMENTS WILL BE DISMANTLED!! DISMANTLE!! DISMANTLE!!"

BETAC. Exactly why BP had such an ending. They really did not have another choice. Sol's government was illegal to the GTVA. Oh, and it was High Command's orders, so normal GTVA is all fine.
