# 1 "Rapier"
12-02-2012, 03:43 PM
Just replayed this mission, and am confused about three things.

1) The U.S.S. Rapier is being held right in the middle of the Bajoran wormhole! How could Starfleet have possibly missed them?

2) Baker and Eraun do not sound like they've been stuck there for six years. And wouldn't Eraun have brought the ship to the Founders right after he captured the ship?

3) Eraun apparently becomes a prisoner of war. Yet after completing "Operation Gamma", he says that he was killed during the player's escape and that he was aboard one of the Jem'Hadar ships at the time.

I just don't get it.

1) You're forgetting to take in account the Prophets. If the Prophets 'hid' them, they wouldn't be seen. Like they did with the Jem Fleet.

2) It has been 6 years for us, but it's only been a matter of minutes/hours for the Rapier and the Jem'hadar.

3) I had believed 'I' killed him before leaving. At least I had hoped I did.
I love nice long walks in the country.
Especially if they're taken by people who annoy me!

I don't recall any references to the Prophets "hiding" them, either.

The wormhole, by its very nature, is a wibbly wobbly strand of timey wimey. They all just got misplaced in time.

The wormhole held the wreck of a Bajoran lightship for centuries before spitting it out complete with a three hundred year old Bajoran poet who was completely unaware of the passage of time. Four years of heavy traffic after the wormhole's official discovery and nobody noticed that hanging around in there, either. I'm pretty sure nobody's had to scrape Sisko off their windshields yet. Things are known to disappear in the wormhole, and generally pop back out when it's least convenient for everyone involved, and to date none of the things that did that have realized time had passed in their absence.

Still trying to work out how Klingon players can run around a high security prison with no escort and and a bunch of cloaked Jem'Hadar following them, have total unrestricted access to ISIS, and help protect the Starfleet prison then go back to being the bad guys.

Eraun is like a cockcrotch, kill one of him and five more show up. That I understand.
