Hello fellow Capsule cosmonauts!
So what is the idea here? Well…
What about a ship that has a giant holographic banner on top of it. Much like the holographic banners you get on top of structures, showing which faction owns the structure, or like the holographic banners around star gates. So when you go into battle you can have a literally Flag Ship or Banner-Man ship.
Why? If you want the simple answer; just for rule of cool. Perhaps it could be a module, but I can’t help but feel it would be better as an actual ship all its own, like the monitor perhaps. You could really explore the concept if you wanted and talk about maybe bonuses that having the “flag up” would give, or the ship itself gives some sort of bonuses or something like that, but I think just the ability to have a ship that is basically a giant flying flag is the important part here, it doesn’t even need to have any other features than that.
It wouldn’t be for everybody or every situation of course. There is no doubt that some people would really enjoy the idea of “flying the flag”, literally, into battle.
So that is the idea, what does everybody think?
