Everytime I see this thread I read 'New Thargoid Vagrant'.
My reasoning is that Palin is one of the FSD engineer's, gaining that knowledge could be invaluable if the Thargoids intend to defeat humans as they can't hunt us down in supercruise. Maybe they are launching because they detected a human ship and don't want to be scanned/captured.Because is fleeing form Palin's base, and Palin collected a bunch of Thargoid tech. If we saw this scaping from a Thargoid Hive we would think that it is a Thargoid made, but this seems to be escaping or at least departing from the old Palin's Base. But now that you mention it...
Has anyone checked if there is a similar object... or anything out of the ordinary in the nearest Thargoid hives?
Maybe, maybe not. It's just a theory that I don't necessarily believe in, its just a possibility that I wouldn't dismiss.That post by Max Factor has been bugging me, in terms of I don't know how to answer it.
Suffice to say, all I can do is quote House and say "It doesn't fit".
Usually, you wrangle the target tech to integrate with your own, cutting connectors and replacing them with bespoke ones, cutting back excess material to fit a piece of equipment, drilling holes and removal of problematic components, and that's very apparent with the polyps, or as I call them "fixture points", due to the visible damage to the vessel around these. You don't usually wrangle yourself/your own tech to fit the technology in that way. You have mastery of your own tech, so whatever components of your own tech are being used should be almost entirely free from imperfection, while the unknown hybrid tech usually come out somewhat damaged, because it's being used outside it's usually-intended parameters.
That would make it Ranola. Probably a G-type star. People who don't know can't appreciate how much knowledge and lunacy are bound up in that simple statement. o7forums.frontier.co.uk
Distilling it down to the salient points:
And adding on since it was still spawning regularly before...
- Yellow bumps are (imo) "fixture points" to attach human driver hardware for the Thargoid vessel, and the "face" is a more humanoid cockpit.
- Scouts are chasing it because it's, imo, a human/thargoid hybrid ship design. I'd be trying to blow that up too if someone designed an experimental hybrid based off my, I guess, "own technology"
- I would kill for a picture showing the position of those hearts, especially if they aren't in the normal spot.
- I wouldn't read into the apparent disappearance too much. Sounds like people are still reporting rare encounters with it... Hyperdictions spawned excessively at one point, then FD fixed it so people got hyperdicted intermittently instead of literally every time they tried to jump out a system. I imagine it was meant to only spawn rarely in the first place.
I repeatWe might not even be physically capable of flying a thargoid ship. They have hive minds so the pilot probably has a telepathic link to its vessel or at least some kind of connection like on Avatar. Shoot they might not even have pilots. The ships themselves might be completely autonomous beings in themselves.
