What do you think happened to the possible Vasudans in Sol? At the end of the Great War, several Thoth fighters managed to survive and reach Earth - and possibly more Vasudans (scientists probably) had already moved into Sol. Although a small population: 100 or so, they might have flourished.

My opinions is that after 14 long years of war, the normal civilians listening to all the hatred of Vasudans would have shunted and possibly killed the Vasudans off because only the soldiers could have made true friendships with them through comradeship of battle.

I'd say that there were much more vasudans in Sol. And I doubt that they'd be killed.

Isn't there mention someplace of a Vasudan Embassy?
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

I think that they're dead.

It's possible that they are killed by vasudan haters, also that some are went suicide, because they realize that they are apart from their species forever.

Or they built a small ship and try to reach Alpha Centauri in an conventional way :D

I can see them turning out all right in the end.  There was probably a good mix of scientists, ambassadors, and military types in Sol by the end of the war, and they would most likely have developed good working relationships with their Terran counterparts even in that short time.  Provided the situation in Sol didn't get incredibly nasty in the interim, I don't see public opinion turning against them all that easily.  Hell, the Vasudans who flew against the Lucifer and made it through helped save the population of Earth; they probably received a hero's welcome along with the rest of the squadron.

Wasn't there a plot element of MindGames concerning the Vasudan remnants in Sol?

There is a Vasudan cruiser in Earth orbit at the end of the main Freespace campaign.

Isn't that a scene from the GTD Washington thing, of which was added by FSPort?
But I don't find it too unbelievable that a Typhon or a few cruisers went to Sol to help out.
They said no destroyer could make it in time, but there may have been one waiting at the other end.
Heck, the HoL managed to get a Typhon into Delta Serpentis in time to...well...in time to intercept the Bastion.

We know there are at least four of them, who flew the Thoths seen in the last cutscene of FS1. They are probably still alive, and probably in active-duty service with them military; they were part of the force that dispatched the Lucifer and therefore saved the damn planet and everyone on it, making them Very Important People.

Well, it'd be cool if in some post-lucifer sol campaign there'd be Vasudan faction not only Terran ones. It'd make for example INFA more intresting ;) :D

      It's only 30 years. They'd still be alive . . . I mean, normal civilians might not like them because of the propaganda but they're not going to turn into murderers. The only way normal civies are going to murder a bunch of people is if they get into some big mindless lynch mob but in modern society a competent police force shoudl be able to dispatch such a mob with some tear gas or whatever they're using at the time.

I don't think you would see much in the way of Vasudans in combat.  Human population in Sol = billions Vasudan = thousands maybe.  They would need to establish a decent breading program where every person would be important.  It would be several generations before combat losses would be acceptable unless there was a looming threat of all life being wiped out. 

Now you might see the Vasudan ships being refitted for piloting by Humans.

I doubt there were enough Vasudans to make a breeding population.

It would really depend on the skillset of the Vasudans present. Since Sol was the human industrial hub, the Vasudans present were probably scientists, engineers and the like, to help in production of new Vasudan/Terran technologies, along with a small escort, as well as the diplomats in the embassy. Besides Sol possibly getting some Vasudan reactor tech, they probably didn't have much effect.

You can say that again.

I've always believed that the 4 Thoth fighters were not the only Vasudans in Sol.  I agree that there is the possibility of Vasudan scientists/technicians/groundstaff/headz samplers etc stationed on Installations and on the ground.  After all, was the shield system production team based at Earth, and we know from the cutscene "Lab" that Vasudans helped us create the system.

I roughly plotted one, actually.  Called it Titan's Call.  Never really got beyond the rough stage, but basically there was JUST enough Vasudans in Sol to build a colony, so they were given Titan, and some people, actually, a LOT of people, didn't much care for it.  By the end of it, the player would be forced to destroy the only operational Orion in Sol.

In my SotGW concept the Vasudans preferred to check the Venusian colony out because it reminds Vasuda Prime. Ok, they can't actually land on it...but whatever... :nervous:
