The Pre game Cinamatic

I have never played starlancer, but I'm wondering if the Cinamatic would help stop the 8 or 5 sleeper ships debate. Thank you.

Some people are like slinkies. They don't do anything, but you can't help but smile as they tumble down the stairs.

The Starlancer gamestart cinematic?

im afraid not, that simply consists of a Coalition battleship being escorted in by a mirage alliance fighter. shortly followed by an entire FLEET of coalition basilisks decloaking (Were talking 200+ fighters here, stealth assault with messon blasters) and attacking fort sherman. following which you hear the admiral give the order to execute the French and Italian prisoners the Black guard captured. off the top of my head, i think the entire cinematic is set at Europa, Jupiter's ice moon.

For those less familar with Starlancer, let me give you some background here. Starlancer opens up with the opening manuvers of a solar-system sized war. As in, you are surprised, immensely, as the war starts. This means we are at the beginning of the Alliance Coalition War.

The game ends with a major Alliance Oppoistion, at this point the Alliance is winning the war. They would have no reason to construct or even to think about Sleeper Ships.

If you look at the Freelancer history, 800 years ago at the end of a 100 year war between the Alliance and the Coalition the sleeper ships are launched. Do the math there.

Between the end of the starlancer game, which covers a year or two, at most, and the launch of the sleeper ships, there are aproximately 90 years of warfare between the Alliance and the Coalition, during witch the "upper hand" will change places several times.

In short, there is no possible way anything from the Starlancer game will confirm or deny any rumors about the Freelancer universe.
