Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
I doubt very much the Vasudans were a planet-state 10,000 years ago.

That depends on the size of their population. We assume that they were numerous, but if the Vasudans had only a couple million people for example, it starts to sound more likely. Vasuda Prime was a harsh world, and it's possible they in essence were trapped on the equivalent of an island in the midst of a desert sea until relatively late in their development.

This would also help to explain their ability to squeeze out every last drop of utility from any resources available to them, as, trapped as they were, doing as much as possible with what little they had would have grown more and more important as time went by.

Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
Humans have also existed for that long. We could have met them too.  :rolleyes:

Umm...ten millennia ago, we had no space technology. We can't meet the Vasudans, but the Ancients can visit us. Also note that Petrarch (was it?) did mention that Earth was part of the Ancients' civilization back then.

He mentioned that many of the GTVA's systems were once controlled by the Ancients, which could have meant Earth as well.

Go play PI and listen to the ramblings of Dasmar...I actually like that "theory".

Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
There's no evidence supporting anything saying that the humans were visited by the Ancients, but it is repeatedly hinted at during FS1 and in the FSRefBible.

Well, I did recall some canon stuff stating that Earth was part of the Ancients' civilization, so if that is true, the chances are likely that the Ancients did pay a visit.

Well is there any logical reason for the Ancients to leave the Vasudans or Earth alone? If you've heard the Ancient monologues from FS1, you'll recall them talking about enslaving and annihilating foreign species (nice people eh?), y wouldn't they do the same to Earth?

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

You're getting your info mixed up, I'm sure there was no such information.

I'm pretty sure he's confusing us with the Vasudans.

To be fair, you never see a big mass of them in Freespace 1, which is the tactic that they're supposed to use most commonly.

Re: Some Terran-Vasudan Questions.
Unless the Vasudans got some decent weapons (better than the Vasudan Light Laser anyway) the Terrans would've won the war in a blink of an eye.

Then again, in Out of the Dark, Into the Night (the one where the Shivans first appear), the Vasudans use ML-16s. They always completely splash my squad in that mission so I have to sanitize them all myself.
