I prefer to carve the terms of primitive races joining your empire into their planet.

Finally they reconsidered my offer and instead on nukes i'm crapping their economy by flooding them with "Luxury Food".  ;D

I have a VERY annoyingly helpful NPC ally.  He has several warships parked around Earth, not a big deal, I roll-play they are there to escort all the cargo ships plying between us.  The problem comes that I am excavating a BIG ruin on Mars and hit robot defenders pretty often.  The NPC then flies over and helpfully nukes the bad guys.  This doesn't hurt my colony but does run the dust/radiation levels on Mars up like crazy.  I also have to SM my diplomacy rating back up because my population rightfully get a bit pissed at this.

Heh, found a primitive empire right in Alpha Centauri(well, primitive compared to me, I have magneto plasma and they're still nuclear pulse!), so I gear up for an invasion. Well, for a primitive race, they sure are annoying. Oh sure, I can swat aside their ships with impunity with my laser-armed destroyers, but attacking the planet itself is another issue. My destroyers haven't been having a problem blowing every missile out of the sky sent their way(and the few that make it through just get blocked by shields), but when about 6 pdc's send about 350 size one missiles(even though they suck ASS; I mean, my destroyers move about 7500, while the missiles they're firing at me top out around 6400!), then that's another issue. Since the missiles are slower than me, it's more annoying than dangerous, but I'm gonna wait for my missile-armed cruisers to finish building and swat those PDCs from standoff range

Being worried about my bestest Admiral here, the age is weighting her down and her health is playing tricks on her. Seeing my special little flower go is going to hurt.

So, I've finally finished what the historians will be calling the Battle of Alpha Centauri, and the Narval Imperium is under MY control. The Narvals are a race of warm-blooded, furry arthropods that have a tolerance for lower oxygen and planets on the chillier side, though ironically enough their homeworld is barely within the perfect zone for human habitation. Now I just need to get a few GFTFs built so I can train up some home-grown oppressors police force(so I can bring my first army corp back home), and then PARTY TIME!

That's not age weighing her down. It's all those medals!

I am following soviet conventions damnit, don't you know that the reason good commanders are rewarded so much is because the layers of medals count as armour against assasin's bullets?

But seriously now, Soviet military conventions involve giving high-valued medals everytime someone is promoted to a high position.


holy crap this superscientist right here

I've just re-read the Heritage trilogy for the ... third time I believe and was planning to start on the new Star Corpsman series today - though I have a party tonight and I fear if I do start it I'll end up doing nothing but reading and drinking in the pub :)

@Marski

I noticed good scientists are a lot more common in 6.0 , though yours is NICE . 60 labs at 65% .... bet you are going to push Research Rate to the max :D

Planning to start a Starlancer ( Alliance vs. Coalition ) campaign as well though it might mean sol will be quite .... hot and full of wrecks .

I don't see how that necessarily follows seeing as to how most assassin's were dispatched by the people awarding the metals. :P
