Highly classified, that we'll find out in WiH2, right?

On a sidenote, if Daedalus base is in close solar orbit how come they didn't receive the Indus' distress beacon? or did they just radio the Fedayeen and let the indus wait without telling them? I knew the UEF were full of cold bastards, TEV4LYFE

Suns are big places :P
Big, noisy places at that. The Fedayeen have a few advantages that helped them find the Indus that noone else has.

Buttttt I like to think of the UEF as evil ;)

!!Sarcasm and oversimplification warning! Please don't take the following text literally or even seriously!!
There are only good guys in BP. Noone is evil! The GTVA tries to save Humanity, the UEF tries to protect their way of life, the Gefs try to save the planets, the Vishnans try to preserve the balance and the Shivans punish the destroyers, so the coming generations get a chance at live.

On a sidenote, if Daedalus base is in close solar orbit how come they didn't receive the Indus' distress beacon? or did they just radio the Fedayeen and let the indus wait without telling them? I knew the UEF were full of cold bastards, TEV4LYFE
They could have ended up on the directly opposite side of the sun. There is no way you can hear a distress call "through" the sun. Also Daedalus was apperently made as a factory for antimatter, not as a listening or spying post.

There is of course the possibility that they did get the distress call and the Fedayeen were simply faster in getting there or they were ordered not to intervene, because a rescue ship was already sent.
Or they simply didn't have any ship there that was capable of helping in the first place. A freighter full of explosives isn't exactly something I'd want anywhere near such a hot and iradiated place like unprotected, low sun orbit.

I didn't say they should scramble a rescue I just thought it would be cruel of them to get that transmission, call up the Fedayeen and then not even radio the indus to say 'hey pal, help is on the way'

Ha, wasn't even a Queen.  That'd be the Imperiouse or Serkr Group, methinks.  The Carthage would be some other power piece, yes, but not the Queen.
I actually meant the Imperieuse when I talked about the Queen.
Pretending the Queen is out of the game and promote the Carthage for the time being, it is the perfect bait, 'cause, as we know, the UEF wanted desperatly to deal a heavy blow to the TEVs...Damn shame Steele lured them into his trap.

Considering the Deadalus base...the Tevs are able to jump meson bombs, while they won't send a meson bomb to said base and demand them to stand down, what about a realy huge EMP?
We know the Tevs got EMP missiles, but what about a meson bomb sized EMP warhead, which would simply disable the whole defensive systems, so they can jump in and destroy them?
And does that mean that the UEF has Mjolnir like torpedo platforms?

Wouldn't an EMP risk damaging the heat shields? the Tevs want that plant badly

You got a point...I thought, don't ask my why, the heat sield was something like a huge umbrella...but this wouldn't work...so a EMP would kill the whole station...damn thos Feds, they're smart^^

Wait, how do we know it's not some big metal umbrella? I was really hoping for a battle in the literal shadow of this thing what with the new graphical effects and all.

Re: What should the GTVA's strategy be?
I imagine it to be inspired by the film Sunshine.


Which is a good thing.

Also.............why can't Tev recon probes / observation/Awacs/Recon flights be able to narrow down the location of Daedalus?

The Fadayeen Frigate was able to approach the Indus without Roasting, is Daedalus a LOT closer?

Also request Daedalus split :D

Re: What should the GTVA's strategy be?
Note that Masyaf was undamaged, and a Narayana, and not all that long on station. As for narrowing down locations, let me introduce you to a novel concept in FreeSpace called scale. Suns are huge. Suns are noisy. Hiding something close to one is easy. Unless you happen to have very capable observatories in place that can monitor the Sun very closely for some time without burning out, your chances of catching a glimpse of a very small station in its orbit are very very slim.

Re: What should the GTVA's strategy be?
Why not use exoplanet finding techniques to get a good guess of where the station is? I'm sure the GTVA has more advanced instruments and more refined techniques to do something like that than we have now.

Re: What should the GTVA's strategy be?
Actually, they probably wouldn't. Remember, the main means of finding new planets in FS is to go through a subspace node and look what's on the other end. Detecting exoplanets is mainly of academic interest, if it actually still exists.

In addition, exoplanet finding techniques are made to find objects that are several thousand kilometers in circumference travelling on orbits that are roughly equivalent to orbits of terrestrial planets, finding something that is much smaller than a planet that is travelling on an orbit that is inside Mercury's is way harder.

Re: What should the GTVA's strategy be?
Well....... If we (Tevs) can locate random hidden cargo depots and the like. I'd hope wecan apply some practical SOC experience (hopefully there are some of our agents already amongst the UEF) to finding the massive  MASSIVE MASSIVE heat-proof dutch cap in space :yes:
