Alpha Corvi and Beta Sculptoris
« on: March 18, 2007, 10:59:31 pm »

Can someone show me where we know what happened to Alpha Corvi and Beta Sculptoris – if you get what I mean.

I have stumbed across a resource which says that Apha Corvi was a “Victim of Interdimesional fatigue” while Beta Sculptoris “suffered a mysterious solar implosion”. I’m sure I have read about these explanations somewhere but I can’t find where.

Are these canon explanations (i.e explained by the game’s creators)?. And if so where do I find them!

Yeah, but really, talking in terms of the game universe, (assuming that "victim of IDF" and "mysterious solar implosion" are not canon) why didn't the UN/whatever specialists that named the stars include the Alpha star for each constellation (and why didn't PR3&FF, by the way)? I mean, from what I know, the stars in a constellation are given a Greek letter in the descending order of brightness, so there's always an Alpha.

I don't think the ordering has anything to do with brightness, but you may still be right that there's always an "Alpha".
