I have no preference to the name, so long as I can count on my "friends" to help me fight off enemies. I´d do it alone, but what´s the odds of winning every fight? I forsee this as being a testament to how good the pilots really are here in the LR. Time will come for each and everyone of us to put up or shut up. Defense of our spacestation is at hand! We need a battle cry...something that will strike fear in our opposition. Creator of Privateer FAQ - life is a journey, not a destination! If it ain´t broke, you´re not hitting it hard enough!

I really wonder how much protection a space station will be. I mean the though thing will be travelling between planets and in the outer space. If space stations aren´t mobil, what good will a base be. OK you can go there and repair and fix up your ride, but after that. You´d still be in trouble if you ran into 20 pirates just waiting to blast you into oblivion.

Wait a sec... are we talking about a space station owned and operated by the TLR crew? If so, I can make sure that the Free Merchant Navy makes use of it as a base of operations, at least until we get ahold of our own station. And I would suggest we call it &quot;The Lancer´s Reactor&quot;. I mean, what else should it be called? ----- Xornicon Altair WebMaster: <A href=´http://www.geekorgy.f2s.com´ Target=_Blank>GeekOrgy.com</a>

This space station could be similar to the &quot;newbie&quot; area discussed in detail on most reviews where you´d be somewhat protected from harm. We could develope an &quot;underground railroad&quot; of sorts that have sentries available to escort pilots from the newbie area to our air space. From there they could help defend, or venture out on their own. I´m sure the services of the Free Merchant Navy would be welcomed, and greatly rewarded. We could help each other out in times of need. Establish trade routes and provide cover for each other...that sounds like a plan. This would be more than a guild, it would a corporation with a working society. You assist the corporation, the corporation returns the favor. Freelancers, those that choose to fly with their own agenda, would be welcomed and reputations would be as important as the type of ship you fly. I´m getting fired up now! I just need that DSL line to be able to stay connected all the time...hehehe Spacestation Freedom?

A space station just for TLR would be cool :-) Only people with say, 50 (relevant, or at least as relevant as they get) posts get to use it :-) Or not? Idea still sounds cool. Dunno about letting whole squadrons use it. ========== Tachyon15 Member of &quot;Looking For A Squadron&quot; ICQ: 23863366 ==========

The idea definately has merit, especially the part about helping newbies. Nothing is worse than being introduced into an already (presumably) thriving universe with no allies and no true safe haven. Imagine being that one rookie against so many veteran predators out for an inexperienced merchant to get some easy loot from... Then again, we´ll all be rookies at first.

Hmm....maybe we can set up some sort of tutorial training area for newbies. All this sounds awesome....i admit, i am drooling but still do you all want to be dissappointed when FL comes out and it doesnt meet your high expectations? About that 50 posts thing....I think im well over that number. <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> --------------------- If I wanted smoke blown up my ass, I´d be at home with a pack of cigarettes and a short length of hose.

Escorting newbies is a good idea, BUT a newbie has to learn a little of the world by himself, if he is escorted all the time he doesn´t know the danger in some area´s (that is just my AC experience) owning a space base would kickass in FLO, I´m keeping the posting up te get at that 50 posts =))

All we need to do is make sure everyone has a high speed connection, and hope the FLO is voice activated so we don´t have to constantly jump from our mouse (or joystick as the case may be) to the keyboard in order to tell those newbie´s that flying towards that pirate planet might not be a good career move. :-) Every indication so far is leaning towards spacestation(s) plurar that can be occupied. So if we get tired of one base, our numbers our strong enough, &amp; with a well choreographed effort we can move into another station like a bee hive moves with its queen.

Hehe, we could use the carrier to convoy over to another space station...much like the Concordia in the Wing Commander series. A flying fortress if you will. I just love dreaming things up like this. It would be cool also when (or if) this all happens you take a looksee from a different camera view (follow cam) to get an idea of the prespective involved with 30 to 50 ships flying around defending a spacestation or carrier.
