Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
Okay, for one thing, we all know that the Vasudan language is very complex, thus the reason for translators.  But wouldn't it be really easy for a Vasudan to learn Terran?  (Hey they might not really speak English)
Next thing, would there ever be a situation where there was a Terran pilot and Vasudan copilot (or vice-versa)?

1) It might actually be quite easy, but I just guess they don't bother
2) Yeah, officer exchange program.

Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
I think vasudans can learn English, it would just be very hard and they wouldn't be able to speak it.
humans can probably learn vasudan, but again they wouldn't be able to speak it.

I think they'd be able to speak it, It'd just sound a little weird.  (Do whatever effects are done to Vasudan speech with a normal sentence).

Would their anatomy allow it? I'm not quite sure...

On the other hand, remember why Mackie was stationed in Tau Sigma? :lol:

It says somewhere in the FSRefBible that their vocal chords were unable to speak English. Either that, or I've gotten FS mixed up with SW, and I have to be burned at the stake after having been forced to drink a cup of rusty iron nails.

Well, we can't comprehend their language because the nature of their speech is determined by a lot of factors, including their proximity to the current emperor.

They can probably speak Terran Standard, but only that their voices are too coarse for us to understand it.

:smilingwtf: (Yeah, I know it doesn't exist)

There's a file in the retail FS2 vps where you can hear a Vasudan saying "thank you". Not good. :no:

Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
Next thing, would there ever be a situation where there was a Terran pilot and Vasudan copilot (or vice-versa)?

It's stated at one point that most GTVA fighters have modular cockpit setups that can be swapped in and out for one species or the other. I don't know if this extends down to the crewmember level, but there's no practical reason to say it couldn't.

where does it say? I remember seeing somewhere either in the tech room briefing or mission briefing for the 53rd that the Myrmidon can be used by either species, but ive never heard of any other fighters than the myrmidon having that

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
The Myrmidon is a Terran-Vasudan design, according to Captain Loukakis. That's why it's so curvy.

I believe it was mentioned during your officer exchange tour.

then you could safely assume it could be used by either species, since the Vasudans would obviously want some part in something they helped out with

Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
...you don't see them flying Ulysses fighters...

But you have a point there. If the GTVA has the Officer Exchange Program, there must definitely be Vasudans flying in Terran ships, since the reverse is also true, as evidenced by the main campaign.

Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
Okay people, heres another one.  Just how similar is Terran and Vasudan anatomy?  If a Terran and Vasudan crashed somewhere would the Terran be able to patch up the injured Vasudan? (or vice-versa agian)
