    It's been a few days since the deadline, so I'd just like to let you all know that the update is being worked on diligently. This is going to be a long one - lots of conflict and other good stuff to cover. Currently it's taking up well over one PM in my inbox. I also intend to add another section to the Tech Files, which may take some time. So, in summary: I apologize for the delay this time, but I assure you that it'll be worth the wait. ;)

    Then you probably could've picked a better place to govern than Damen. :p

    Great, conflict. Time for the militarization of space, I suppose.

    Anyone want to take a guess as to what the Islamic Confederation's destroyers will be named?

    Hint: Just think Islam and I'm sure you'll get it right away... ;)

    I am going to take a wild guess, and say that the USA is a part of the conflict. :p And, on that note, I would like to say I'm interested in taking a USA governor position.

    There are a huge variety of ship names that I can think of- unless you only want me to think of Islamic stereotypes.

    I would guess it could be construed as a stereotype. A really, blatantly obvious stereotype. Think punishment in Iran or Saudi Arabia, if that helps...

    OOC: Either Sharia or Jihad?

    'Stoned'? :p

    But seriously, there are many far better and more epic-sounding names than those.

    I suppose so, but you have to admit that Sharia makes sense. At least a little sense. Okay, maybe it doesn't. Anyways, I can always change it if someone wants to suggest an awesome Islamic-themed name. Always open to suggestions. Well, maybe not. But I will take it if it sounds good... :shifty:

    Walaja, Firaz, al-Q&#257;disiyyah...

    Naming them after important historical victories is always a winner. Those are three from the conquest of Sassanid Persia.

    Considering my choice to name the first two American destroyers Liberty and Justice, I don't think I'll be in a position to complain either way. :p

    Is the third one named Freedom For All? :lol:

    Anyways, what is the ETA for the update? Will it be up before next weekend? It is important. For confidential reasons. Yes, confidential.

    You mean Liberty and Justice aren't for all? :mischief:

    The People's Republic is eagerly awaiting the glory that will arrive with the update.

    Europe does not yet have military spacecraft, though its colony on Bacchus does. However, I strongly suspect that things are going to have to change soon.
