5th erm..Squadron, I think it would be now, will be briefly undergoing repairs at Yullado I. Then I'll enfleet SL Combat Wombats Palisades and clear Yullado III for his revamped invasion plans.

CEO Prophet, all of my crippled ships are now gone or have orders to move from Yullado V, leaving only yours left to receive enough repairs to limp to port. It shouldn't take all that long before they are ready to move out, my friend.

Captain Kotau, after repairing CEO Prophet's two ships I'll move my Logistics Fleet to your stranded ship right outside Yullado V.

I'd just like to say for the record, that the high level of co-operation between so many Commanders is impressive. Its this sort of organisation that beats the enemy.

Probably one of the factors is we hit the main fleet first and then cleaned up the rubbish. The Mveloum Operation failed because they dithered and did the reverse.

But mainly I want to thank everyone for working as a team, a damn impressive team at that! Wink

Thanks for the help, Captain. As soon as our ships are capable of space travel, we will slowly make our way back. I have ordered the Ziffin to cover our damaged Longbow destroyers' withdrawal.

It is remarkable. The war may be far from over, but we've demonstrated that together we can win it.

I've PM'ed Kotau, but was hoping he could move FNS Onyx to the Sundry w/p to repair Kanas 2 ships. After the Fizbon w/p is cleared I'll send HHS Hermetic as well. We rather need to build up protection for that construction ship, and I was wondering Prophet if you could spare the DDS Ziffin, as those ships in Yullado are under no treat now.

I'm afraid that construction ship is somewhat under-manned and producing slower than it should.

Ali, would you like me to transfer some of those fighters from Fizbon IX to Worric VI along with the troops? I'll have plenty of room left after loading the troops on my Harvest Moon. I wouldn't be able to transfer them all, of course, but I could take some. Tell me soon because its set to leave this turn, mate.

Thinking about it, I don't know. You might want to keep them all there considering the hostile warp point proximity. Anyhoo, let me know.

You will have room for 20 Mosquitos and 2 Wasp. So load them if you have time, re-inforcing Worric is a good idea (always).

No threat now. But the Ukra-Tal have proven once and again to surprise us. All it will take is a stray warship to eliminate these Longbows. I'd rather not take that chance.

What I can do is order DD Squad Two to advance into Worric after they take out the carrier. They could provide some cover for your ships, System Lord. Unless you would rather they stay in Fizbon? Think about it. (I am only ordering the squad to attack the carrier this turn)

Hm, a very good point Prophet. Yes, after DD Squad Two has illiminated that carrier, have it move to the Sundry w/p would be a very good idea.

I am concerned that construction of those defenses is taking time. I think I should probably build at least 4, more if I can stretch the finances, until we can mass a decent defense fleet.

Where we go after that may be a good question. I do believe the best defense is offense. However, the Navy particularly needs to upgrade its ships. Too many very old ones...

Upgrading will take far too much time, perhaps when the heat on our border has quieted down a bit, then I will reconsider. System Lord Alikiwi, your idea to quild more repair yards on Worric IX will also help greatly.

As for the 3rd, for the next two months or so it will be travelling to the Worric->Sundry WP to ensure no unexpected guests slip through our defenses. Kana's 4th has been beaten up a bit by said visitors. Meanwhile I will be supervising repair operations at Worric IX until my ships are at full speed.

System Lord Alikiwi, consider building a scout ship corvette or frigate for eyes into Sundry. For now I plan to move the 3rd into Sundry for a short time to gather some intel, but I would like to have an automated fast boat to provide constant intelligence.

I would suggest sending one damaged or undamaged ship at a time to Fizbon VI, or Worric IX, to get retrofited. When it is done, it goes back to your Flotilla, and then you send another one. I would recommend Fizbon due to the 2 Shipyards, and Repair, plus the Training Academy there as well.

Yes my 14th got beat up, once the way is clear I'm going to send a repair ship or two there fix them up. Of course since there is a shipyard ship in the sector I may consider scrapping them and just buy new ships.

We keep talking about Worric - Sundry, but what about Yullado? Maybe we need some defenses on the western WP to prevent further reinforcments from the Ukra-Tal.

Well as for scout ships, i noticed that none of the scout ships we have are not too fast, i have designed 2 new scout ships, both capable of 10 moves with minor armor for defense, these ships could be a great asset for what you are talking about here,

http://home.spaceempires.net/ftopict-4933.html

although the Eyes of the Federation does need a better name, if you have any suggestions please post it there,

I would suggest removing the enemy colonies from our space before any offense, that way we limit their knowledge and they wont have a few ships pop up behind our lines. As for kennelworth, i do have a plan for it, and with the help of Prophet, Alikiwi, the navy and anyone else who wants to come along we can take that system from the enemy.

Yullado is the sole domain of CW. He does have one construction ship arriving there, but what he does with it, who knows. Perhaps he will get around to building defenses there, but I suspect he has higher priorities at the moment?

As for Kennelworth, once Worric is secure, we should be able to muster forces and clean out those ships that keep hanging around, but I think that is still a few months away.

Gentlemen, I already have a scout (speed 6), an old Indian A design but still serviceable for all that, that I will be sending through the Worric>Sundry warp point. Its currently in Yullado with my Fle..er Squadron but it won't take long to get back.

SL Crixon, your new scout designs are welcome. I just already had this scout handy and able to be deployed quickly.

SL Alikiwi, I second CNO Kana's praise of your initiative to build more repair facilities at Worric IX. With multiple repair facilities plus Naval Repair Slips, fast efficient repair is possible for ships serving on the front lines. I thank you, sir.

Rest assured its my pleasure! The faster I can repair ships and/or upgrade them the better are our defenses! Believe me, its a selfish motive. I want my citizens to survive, just as I would want any ship in the system to survive and its galant crew.

It really comes back to my (numerous) comments about a balanced approach.

Or put it another way, "he who repairs fastest wins the battle" Laughing

and for a lack of a better place to post this, SL Alikiwi, i would like to offer up Egoria IV as a resupply and repair base for any operations in kennelworth and beyond, it will, in the coming years be defended by 13 or more defensive bases on the wp, and a potential of a few combat vessels, it could easily be used as a staging ground for combat ships and transports, baring your own colony of kennelworth IV, that hopefully will be soon readded to the federation.

I would like to remind everyone present that Dragonstar does have a scoutship available for recon duty. DES Indian is in orbit around Fizbon VI. If anyone wishes to employ her for scouting out enemy systems, please contact me.

I still think it is far too early for us to be speaking of Kennelworth. We have no idea what the Ukra-Tal are doing right now. I think our focus should remain on them for the time being. Fortify Egoria from Kennelworth attacks while the Navy continues to hammer at the Ukra-Tal. If we really want to use a "best defense is a good offense" philosophy, it makes sense for us to strike at one enemy at a time.

I can't disagree with CEO Prophet Very Happy

Note also that Egoria already has a resupply base on Egoria VIII. Building another one wouldn't be much use unless your were perhaps planning on building repair facilities and doing a lot of upgrades.

As for Kennelworth I have always had plans in the back of my mind. But now is not quite the time for action. Worric (& Yullado) need cleaning first, and the w/p to Sundry needs proper protection.

The Navy also needs time to modernise its ships, and we could happily do with stronger Private Forces as well.

The thing is with kennelworth 1, is that because it has no population it cannot be taken, SJ said something about a bug with the game in relation to that, I feel that any first strike should be kennelworth 3, as it is right by your soon to be colony and its a medium world with a small population. But i do agree we need to secure our borders first before beginning the assault on this front.

True it can't be taken. However it had 2 resoruce producers (minerals & Rads) which quite frankly I need. Also it would be building defenses (despite some crazy ideas elsewhere), plus a shipyard etc etc. It could also have a Naval Slip (or 2) built meaning when we attack we can repair our ships quickly.

Agreed, myself ive been considering sliding in the Kennelworth VIII colony as a second base in the system, but it is a tiny, thus limiting production of facilities and such.

I must warn both of you against colonizing in Kennelworth. If you decide to push forward with this, I cannot guarantee Dragonstar coverage of your colonies. Our primary focus in that region is securing Egoria from further incursions. Right now that means putting every Dragonstar ship in the area defending that warp point. We cannot afford to spread out our meager forces. Not until adequate platforms are built.

CEO Prophet, both of your vessels at Yullado V are capable of moving under their own power now. The one is actually totally repaired, actually.

I will be moving the 5th Fleet Logistics to Captain Kotau's crippled ship nearby.

We thank you for the assistance, Captain. Dragonstar appreciates it. The DDS Bow will be ordered back to Fizbon for complete repairs.

Yeah, the Hailstorm was barely damaged. But the few hits were critical, enough to immobilize the ship.

Once Yullado is cleaned out, perhaps we can send a fleet or two to Worric VII to clear any fighters and ascertain the enemy strength before dropping troops. Perhaps Koatus 2 fkleets at Worric IX could do this once repairs are complete?

I'm about to upgrade my old Firefly 0001 in Fizbon, and it will be available for purchase on completion of those upgrades. No, I'm not scrapping it...!
