Thoth and Ulysses

Quoting a veteran comment:

Odd discrepancy between the construction dates of the Thoth. FS1 clearly states that it was designed with the Ulysses, meaning it's manufacture could start no earlier than 2335, yet FS2 says the fighter had been in production for "over 40 years." Personally, I accept the FS1 date over the FS2, mostly because of the close relationship between it and the Ulysses.

I'm not sure of the bolded comment and I deleted it. I text-searched the FS1 command briefings for "Thoth" and found nothing to back the statement up, nor anything in the techroom to say that the Thoth was designed "with the Ulysses" either. Anyone have evidence? Mustang19 17:48, 23 October 2007 (CDT)

You must not have looked very hard. The FS1 tech database states: The design for the Thoth was simultaneous with the design for the Ulysses, and these two ships were designed by some of the same technicians. Thus they are quite a match for our Ulysses-class fighters. The FS2 number was most likely a typo. --Goober5000 18:14, 23 October 2007 (CDT)

Oh doi, second paragraph of the tech description. Thanks again Goob. Mustang19 09:50, 24 October 2007 (CDT)
