ISP3:IE - Faslane Class YardShips
« on: 01 April 2013, 06:55:46 »
In response to a question on ComStar ships back in 2011, Øystein indicated that all six ComStar Faslanes had been destroyed, but the Faslane entry in Interstellar Expeditions indicates that "the remaining three ships eventually merged into the naval forces for the Republic of the Sphere". Is this a case of new trumping old, with IE3 superceding Øystein's comment, or did IE get their detail on the Faslane wrong?

If this is a case of new trumping old, is it reasonable to assume that the three vessels indicated as having survived until 3076 (according to Masters & Minions) - the Dover, Glamorgan and Plymouth - are the three that are in service with the ROTS navy? I ask because IE says that "most" of the Faslane fleet was destroyed, but that three survived, whereas earlier sources indicate only 6 were ever built, which could indicate that Interstellar Expeditions is tacitly suggesting there were more than 6 through the use of the word "most"... although I could be over-thinking things there.

It's more interesting than optimal, and therefore better. O0 - Weirdo

IE3 does indeed supersede that comment, so those Faslanes are indeed in the service of the ROTS Navy. Only 6 was built.

With regards,
