I understand that Droid Star fighters weapons are moderately powerful. But only against fighter-to-fighter combat. A cruiser would just shrug of the attack, especially. Since Cov. Cruisers can shakes of 1 MAC round.

Actually two. A squadron of Droid Starfighters can do anything but destroy a Covenant Cruiser. (Unless they continuously bombarded it's shield for three weeks) and plus, it's pulse laser defense system is way too strong. It would vaporize those starfighters before they even had a chance.

This guy HAS to be making this story as somesortof alternate "reality" -version.

I'm guessing that, the "Ark" is that Forerunner ship from the end of Halo 2 (and we by the way know nothing for sure, is it The Ark or not, most propably not, but anyways, let's continue)..

Well. If Forerunners could make ringworlds capable of destroying sentient life in a galaxy, I find it very hard to believe that even a hundred of primitive starfighters attacking would have any effect on their spaceships. Remember the comment about MC's armour? Combat armour level 12, versus MC's level 2..
I'd guess their armour and shielding would be maybe A BIT more efficient than Covenant's, and wouldn't really give a shit about a few pulse lasers or whatever those things use, I'm not really that fanatic about Star Wars..


But eh.. I'm going to stop commenting now. I could point out how weird and illogigal this series is, but since I guess this storyline is supposed to be like it, it's no use repeating same things over and again..

Hey.

You know the code, that's good. Use it, but be sure to use it right. Use the indents whenever a character starts a new line, (by that, I mean, a new 'say,'). And be sure to use the italics when doing in-story documents, AN's, and character thoughts, or soliloquies. Don't use underlines. Read a book. You see how it works?

Another thing. The term "To be continued..." is a cliche term. Overused. Stock. Dead. Lost what little taste it once had. Avoid it as well.

Overall, okay. Getting better. Be sure to put a space after periods.

- Dave.

In a series, people know that it will be continued.

They figure out that its the end of the story when you put "Finale" or something similar in the title of the last chapter.

I know how easy it is to kill a cruiser in Freespace, but a Covenant CSS class Cruiser's a lot different. For example, it has shields, (Probably Tachyon Shields...), better alloys, stronger weapons and better tools in killing the little buggers. Also, the ship holds pretty much Seraph fighters which really kick their asses easily.

See it as a Lucifer - class Superdestroyer but then times x 2, or maybe even times x 3.

Hope it will help out. You could go explaining about these new weapons or something strange, like a inside job that made the ship go boom later on, so you could be really sneaky in this. But if you do, do it good. Smile

- JC

Ok. What have I missed? 'Cos I can't see anyone mentioning a Covenant cruiser anywhere?

Or what? Huh? I'm a bit confused here, but then again that might be nothing new.
