    Yes, we are fractured. It's human nature.
    We constantly fight between each other and everything that gets between us and what we want.
    We are chaotic.
    We are disorganized.
    We are aggressive.
    We are territorial.

    We are the evil that lurks in the darkness of space. Devote followers of the chaos within wearing the mask of order and harmony.

    An organized foe is coming our way.

    We are no clear target.
    We aren't predictable.
    We run around like cockroaches, hiding behind the next stone where it's dark.
    We reproduce quickly.
    We have no queen whose death will leave us without cause or intent.
    We are willing to sacrifice everything for what we consider victory.

    We are not "we".

    The Thargoids have already lost. Because they can't fight humanity as there is no one humanity.
    That was beautiful, man.

    In short, GalCop believes humanity needs to prepare for war.
    I totally get in previous game the thargoids were the big bad enemy. I also get they are mysterious. But someone also did help the thargoids in the past, so why can't we. I'm not asking for a specific way to be friendly towards them, just any way at all really. I don't mind if I never know much about them, I just want to sit in the saftey of their home space, and watch humanity bash its head on the thargoid rock while the obviously more powerful thargoids show who has the big guns. Oh, and make money while doing it.

    I don't think anyone can deny if someone comes along with bigger and better guns than your side, you might at least be tempted to switch sides to survive.

    WE MUST FIGHT TOGETHER!

    My scientist nature shouts "they can't be that advances to just pretend to destroy us!". But me, I say "get ready for the worst possible scenario". And the truth is, the WPS is one in which the Thargoids have prepared carefully for a full-scale war against humanity. And to survive that, we will need to fight... and to understand, investigate and find our enemy´s weakness.

    Fellow Canonn Commanders, and anyone able to fight, I call you! This is the time to prepare your science vessels to fight! We don´t know what we will be facing, so don't relly just on your biggest guns. Be ready to change tactics and strategies, be ready to swap for ship configurations you are not used to, and be ready to assist anywhere and everywhere!

    If we are to fight the Thargoids, always keep a sharp eye! Any clue, any observation of a possible weak spot will be of vital importance. Report these findings to the Canonn Institute, we will do our best to assist.

    And, more important: Be ready to assist civilian ships. Massive evacuations may occur, lack of food or medicines, need for weapons and shelter. We do not fight for space: We fight for humanity.

    Beware
    For the fear of the Thargoids may be used as an excuse for Human political factions to push their agenda

    As a member of Canonn, can you confirm if you are using your mega ship in this fight. If so, will you be needing people to put their combat ships on board to help it fight. I need to know whether I need to speed up progress on my 'holiday project' or not.

    As long as I know, it is not being used in combat. It is mainly a science vessel, but I will inform if the decission is made to use the Gnosis in combat.

    So long as what happens in the bubble, stays in the bubble, then Im cool. Not literally cos its a heatwave atm and winter is nowhere in sight...or something...

    Ok ye so a little dark place in my psyche really does just wanna watch the bubble burn...it sorta deserves to burn tbh...I got a nice little planet about 30 kyls away to watch it from and a silo of popcorn fer the inevitable forum wars. Im more concerned about my decreasing store of niobium than I am about what happens there ^
    M8 who ye talking to?
    Nobody.
    So who am I talking to?
    Me.
    Wha....?

    Prefer to wait until after the initial thargoid nerf that will happen due to the incessant whining of the lowest common denominator skill level pilots who can't take out a thargoid warship in their unmodified sidewinder while having the game muted watching Netflix.

    And the Thargoids are comming back too. But not because of me.

    Seems so, not to much has changed.
    War never changes.

    As an explorer myself, I have no interest in fighting anyone, or anything. If the bugs attack me I'll run, otherwise I plan to learn about them but mostly just leave them alone, and I'm hoping they do the same to me.

    It's just a bit of fun really. I should probably explain. People have been placing modules on the Gnosis as bookmarks, so I wanted to go one better with a ship. I thought a combat ship would make sense given the current situation in deep space. It's more just because I can than because I want to defend the ship, not that I don't like the ship.

    Thematically I'll probably say it'd be on loan to you, given I may not want to fight against some of the things out there (not just the ones we know about). Of course, I should probably check if I'd lose my ship or not if your mega ship does move/get into trouble.

    lol ^^ so very true.

    They are going to be like the Xenomorphs in the Alen films. They don't want to talk, they don't want to cuddle, they just want our resources. They will wipe out all Human life in order to get those resources.

    Yep, that makes sense. I am sure the Thargoids will give you safe passage through the burning bubble in order to sell your data.

    If we fight the Thargoids they win.

    Says who? I reckon there is nothing in this world that can survive a thousand stock sidewinders acting together. Ever heard of the Battle of Britain? We will be Churchill's few, acting in concert, together, humanity protecting its' own. We will sacrifice our ships, we will show our courage, our fortitude, we will spend our CREDITS to protect the bubble from the invaders, just to give doubters a bubble to come back to.

    The Thargoids don't stand a bloody chance as long as there are more like me and less saying "meh".

    Feels like very few people saw what happened to the feds. Fine, if it's all out war, hello colonia, goodbye bubble. I don't fight people with bigger guns, I'll just lose.
