Bah, I saw "2 topics" and got excited that Steve had posted Part 2.

The discussion always goes on within Steve's threads anyway, so IDK :p

It wasn't me who asked BTW but I am happy either way. It's always been in the threads before because I make multiple posts rather than posting all fiction in a single thread.

Have even the Rigellians hair?

Also the 13K fast facs are scary especially with the 58K speed missiles but i love how the entire thing shapes up. What i seem to have missed what happened with the salvager, did it turnup anything interesting?

I would definitely be ramping up industry like mad right now.   I fear that the Rigellians have bitten off more than they can chew - if they have teeth, mind you.   Until they know more about their possible adversaries they run the risk of inviting an incursion into their home system.   (I know that, if I were their adversary and I knew I could wallop their ships without getting in too much trouble in return, I'd be following them home. )

Yes,  they're Human.

Steve, I gotta ask, how does the AI decide it's time to just ram things?

Usually, if they have no other way to attack you.

See the Yamato class Battleship is being built ;D

Realize it's fitted out with less laser firepower then the Kagero class destroyer, and only 25% thicker armor  :'(

Minimally thicker: yes, but the belt itself is considerably wider overall and unless there are some very lucky shots that hit the same area it will provide a lot more than 25% increase in protection.

I was kind of disappointed in the overall armament.  It has a diverse array of weapons.  I feel like it is going to be mediocre at everything and that the smaller ships that are specialized will end up being considerably more useful.  Kind of a 'Jack of all trades, master of none' kind of problem.

Only against scattered damage ( and due to size not due to thickness ), against a focused laser beam that can cut the armor in a single shot ( for example the destroyers lasers ::) ) it will only provide 25% increased protection.

Real battleship namesakes had vast amounts of armor.

For example the Yamashiro: Total Armor Weight- 12,199 tons (42% of total). So the armor on this Battleship weighted about 4 times as much as the entire weight of a typical destroyer. The Yamato was about twice the size of the Yamashiro and I doubt it had much less weight percentage armor meaning armor alone on the historical battleship should be about 8 times the full weight of a destroyer.

And when it comes to big guns, it's a bit of shame none of the Guns have calibers independent of research like missiles have...
I would love to be able to put huge but crude and slow reload guns for close combat jump-point defense/assault devastating initial barrages.
