Recommended Posts

You think you're being fired upon by the enemy and realize it is actually YOUR pta system firing at them instead.

When you drive your CC nose-first into the pacific, just to see what happens.

(well, either a noob, or very bored)

You become frustrated that you can't fire any missles on the planetary surface, and then realize you don't have any ATS or ATA missles loaded. (Ahh yes, I remember doing that one looooong ago.)

You beam yourself down to a planet and can't figure out how to get yourself back off....

- or -

You land you ship on the planet, get out of your CC, then later on you think your ship is broken because you can't get back in using 'Alt-E' (I later remembered '/' works much better)

When you instruct your ship to HJ and then get out and attempt to ride your ship in first person "Surfer" style only to have the ship disappear under your feet and leave you, well not going anywhere.

Then attempt to catch up with it with your jetpack thinking it won't take long it's only 300,000 klicks away.

Didn't freak out but did ask why did tha...

Thanx guys, it appears that I am not the only noob that gets into silly stuff where common logic fails me.

You have the bright idea of locking a tractor beam on a fully live (and armed) CC in the middle of a battle, thinking that you can hold the damn thing still while your turrets blow it up.

When you move by using the retros all the time. (Done it once, done it again )

Remember the old "Star Trekkin'" song?

Boldly going foreward because we can't find reverse! Only backwards.

You fly your UNARMED transport into Gammulan space to look around....I think I was there about 3 seconds before my ship was destroyed.
