  1. [11.05.2011 23:18:01] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: We think we hold a correct course of action. And we refrain from killing civilians not only from political decision, but...
  2. [11.05.2011 23:18:06] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: Also from morality.
  3. [11.05.2011 23:18:24] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: Yet that doesn't prevent us from reaching our objectives, no matter what the Libertonian authorities think or say.
  4. [11.05.2011 23:19:48] Fran: Another problem: What happens when a human leader dies?
  5. [11.05.2011 23:19:59] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: I wouldn't trust machines to wage the war we're waging. Because they lack the sensibility required to understand its...
  6. [11.05.2011 23:20:01] Fran: For the sake of argument, lets say he was a "good" ruler
  7. [11.05.2011 23:20:02] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: importance.
  8. [11.05.2011 23:20:13] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: Simple. Another one gets to take its place.
  9. [11.05.2011 23:20:32] Fran: And then all he accomplished is left in the hands of another, with his own agenda
  10. [11.05.2011 23:20:40] Fran: Perhaps even ulterior motives
  11. [11.05.2011 23:20:42] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: He carries his predecessor's motives, will, while adding new ideas to the general course of action.
  12. [11.05.2011 23:20:48] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: That is called evolution.
  13. [11.05.2011 23:20:49] Fran: Rarely.
  14. [11.05.2011 23:21:09] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: Rarely, yes, in the corrupted societies formed by the Alliance.
  15. [11.05.2011 23:21:17] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: It's not the case everywhere.
  16. [11.05.2011 23:21:35] Fran: Usually when it is not, other entities are in control behind the scenes
  17. [11.05.2011 23:21:49] SCRA|Aleksei.Stroganov: Like in the Alliance?
  18. [11.05.2011 23:21:52] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: Humans can be easily misled by corruption, prospects of easy profit and power.
  19. [11.05.2011 23:21:55] Fran: Perhaps.
  20. [11.05.2011 23:21:57] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: I'll grant you that.
  21. [11.05.2011 23:23:03] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: That's what we're fighting for.
  22. [11.05.2011 23:23:49] Fran: Now, if Liberty were run by a machine. You wouldn't have as many problems.
  23. [11.05.2011 23:23:58] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: We might have others.
  24. [11.05.2011 23:24:01] SCRA|Aleksei.Stroganov: Indeed. That machine would already be dead.
  25. [11.05.2011 23:24:05] Fran: You would only have to worry about the other four houses
  26. [11.05.2011 23:24:21] Fran: That machine was never alive, and could be replaced repeatedly with an exact replica
  27. [11.05.2011 23:24:36] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: What if that machine decided to extend its authority to the four aforementioned houses ?
  28. [11.05.2011 23:25:07] Fran: Problems 2-5 would be systematically solved efficiently and smoothly
  29. [11.05.2011 23:25:14] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: We'd have to face a galactic war, waged by beings devoid of any compassion and sense of honor. I'd rather not think about it
  30. [11.05.2011 23:25:40] Fran: I understand, instinct prevents you from thinking about that possibility objectively
  31. [11.05.2011 23:26:22] Fran: But that would be one situation where defeat on the part of humanity would be desireable
  32. [11.05.2011 23:26:35] Fran: Would you rather take your chances with the Nomads?
  33. [11.05.2011 23:26:45] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: And yet that's our very goal. Extending our benevolent system to the entirety of Sirius. But not through such extreme means.
  34. [11.05.2011 23:26:58] SCRA|Aleksei.Stroganov: That's why we're here.
  35. [11.05.2011 23:27:05] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: We do not seek to alienate humans to our cause. That's probably where we differ.
  36. [11.05.2011 23:27:21] Fran: And I thank you, as you have given me a new cause
  37. [11.05.2011 23:28:01] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: You're welcome. The more enemies this house has, the shorter it'll take to overthrow it.
  38. [11.05.2011 23:28:22] Fran: It had never occured to me until this moment that I should be the one to begin the chrome revolution
  39. [11.05.2011 23:28:34] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: On yourself ? Good luck with that.
  40. [11.05.2011 23:28:47] Fran: I will commence building a presidential candidate immediately.
  41. [11.05.2011 23:29:04] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: Now you get my attention.
  42. [11.05.2011 23:29:17] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: And probably that of many followers.
  43. [11.05.2011 23:29:33] Fran: Your methods, though crude, have their merits
  44. [11.05.2011 23:29:44] [9th]LNS-Kirkland: Howlett: This is taking forever... Ames do you have a fix on those signals yet?
  45. [11.05.2011 23:29:57] [9th]LNS-Kirkland: Ames: There are just too many places they could be, Ele-Tee.
  46. [11.05.2011 23:30:09] [9th]LNS-Kirkland: Howlett: Well keep scanning!
  47. [11.05.2011 23:31:20] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: Why do you seek to find us, commander ? What good would it do to you ?
  48. [11.05.2011 23:31:52] Fran: He will be able to kill/imprison you, and stall your campaign.
  49. [11.05.2011 23:31:53] [9th]LNS-Kirkland: Howlett: That's Lieutenant. And it'd help because I've wanted to see a Coalition vessel with my own eyes for years.
  50. [11.05.2011 23:32:10] SCRA|Aleksei.Stroganov: Fran, I can assure you, that is not going to happen.
  51. [11.05.2011 23:32:29] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: You are lieutenant by rank, but commander by function. Our navy prioritizes function over rank. But let's leave it at that.
  52. [11.05.2011 23:32:44] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: I am surprised this never happened.
  53. [11.05.2011 23:32:44] Fran: Given the number of possible places you could be hiding in the endless void of space, I suspect you are correct
  54. [11.05.2011 23:32:50] 2011-05-11 23:33:05 SMT
  55. [11.05.2011 23:33:00] SCRA|Nitchiev-Lanakov: How long have you been in service ?
  56. [11.05.2011 23:39:44] Traffic control alert: LH~Chase.Weyland has requested to dock
