From memory, that dialog should offer you more work with the Terrans, and you have to accept that work. Immediately you do, you get a mission to go to talk to someone in Uranus.

i think there is a delay on the next mission starting from when you agree to work for the terrans ( after the escort mission from omicron lyrae ) when you start with one of the none terran starts.

I dont recall it that way, but it might be so.

If you dont get a message inside an hours gametime, then its broken somehow. If theres a delay, then I would expect it after about 10 to 20 minutes gametime.

In the 6th Terran Mission is there any way to increase the number of Terran ships killed in the battle without shooting them?Image

Missiles!!!

First time i tried that part the Terrans lost all of thier fighters and only the Odin (and the Scabbards) survived. The list of containers went on for about 1 and a half pages.Image

I hit the Odin on my way out of the sector and haven't been able to repeat my good fortune since.ImageImage

I have been trying to board the pirate truelight seeker in the goner plot for almost 3 hours now, i can't even count how many boarding attempts i've made with these 8 argon marines.

Am I doing something wrong?

Don't waste any marines on that ship (you wouldn't get them back, anyway). Wait till it stops, then eject and just claim it. It will then turn blue and fly home.

I've tried that :( there is no claim button :(

edit: and on a side note, that ship really hurts when it starts shooting you :( it barbecues my yokohama in like 10 seconds flat

I haven't tried it in 2.5, but in 2.1 it worked. Did you shoot at it? Then it will become hostile and start its attack runs.

On the plus side, it has only front guns and a very limited shooting angle, so it's easily avoided. Just stay away from its nose.

The first time I blew up all of the pirates and it stopped moving but there wasn't a claim button when I ejected so I tried to board it. It went red when I brought its shields down.
after training another 8 marines to 4stars in every category I tried again and they never even breached the hull. I am going to create another thread and hopefully someone can give me a workaround.

I found I had to get VERY close to the truelight seeker before it would let me claim it (patch 2.5). Before that I tried using marines without success (they attempted to hack the core and failed).
