Should be doable.Thanks Commander! A grand total of 9 million tonnes needs delivering. I think there still be something to do for you when you're back
Again, this has nothing to do with the war! This project is about repairing the damage.I'll admit I skipped the bulk of this thread, but The Pleiades is Thargoid territory. We're the invaders there, not them.
We should realize that, and withdraw from our encroachment, not double down on it and declare war on a species who was apparently engaged in self-defense.
If you repair the damage, but leave it there, that makes it pretty directly about the war, no? Rebuilding a base inside someone else's territory is an attempt to re-establish your claim on that territory.Again, this has nothing to do with the war! This project is about repairing the damage.
I suppose rebuilding one not directly Aegis-affiliated station could reinforce a message tacitly sent by not rebuilding those that are, whilst also adding: "We would like to establish an embassy, though." :7...Rebuilding a base inside someone else's territory is an attempt to re-establish your claim on that territory...

I estimate at least 4,000 man-hours, most likely much more.it won't be quick
"The Pleiades" is just an arbitrary grouping of stars based on our humanocentric concepts of distance and area. We have no reason to think that the Thargoids have the same concept of space. We have no reason to think the Thargoids even know what "The Pleiades" is. We have no reason to think that the Thargoid's consider the Pleiades to be their territory or, if they do, where they draw the edge of their territory. Finally, we have no reason to think that the Thargoids will stop at the Pleiades even if we were to give it to them.I'll admit I skipped the bulk of this thread, but The Pleiades is Thargoid territory. We're the invaders there, not them.
That's way too meta for my tastes, but I guess if that's your thing, suit yourself. I helped build Obsidian Orbital in the first place. Sorry there weren't enough of us to get all of the services out there.The thought what would actually happen to that station if it wasn't "saved" intrigues me far more.
What a chance to really test how much influence we actually have. Not by doing something, but by not doing it.
No doubt, there'll be enough players who'll do as asked, but what a wasted opportunity.
