Dart-class Cruisers
« on: 13 January 2015, 04:27:19 »
In the original write-up for the Dart-class light cruiser in Technical Readout: 3057 Revised mention is made of hundreds of the ships being de-armed and sold to the various Periphery nations prior to the Reunification War, with the ships seeing service during the War. It also mentions that the last known Dart to be in service was destroyed by the SLS Gettysburg during the New Vandenberg revolt in 2722 - although that date looks to be a few decades to early to be the New Vandenberg revolt that started the war with the Periphery.

Technical Readout: 3026 Revised somewhat contradicts TRO:3057R, in that the entry for the Elephant-class tug details two squadrons of the tugs destroying a Rim Worlds Republic Dart-class cruiser, the RWRS Conquistador, over Mars during the opening stages of the Amaris Coup; I'd previously presumed that the Conquistador was a ship manufactured or refurbished by the Republic as a part of Amaris' covert build-up prior to the coup, given the TRO3057R entry.

However, Field Report 2765: Periphery lists seven Dart-class cruisers in service with the Republic in April 2765, and an eighth in service with the Concordat. On the basis that new trumps old, does this mean that the entry relating to the SLS Gettysburg is no longer correct/in error? If so, would it be safe to assume that what the TRO:3057R entry reflects is the destruction of the last known Dart outside the Rim Worlds Republic in the interval between April 2765 and the beginning of Operation APOTHEOSIS, rather than simply the destruction of the last known Dart?

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