Rifter - Pirate Fitting

The lowly Minmatar rifter is widely used and accepted as the best pirate frigate in New Eden, for the price. Fitted with a shield buffer tank, many pilots give up their notions of escape when they notice your ships shield is not depleting as it should. Orbit at optimal and overheat if allowed to acheive a quick kill. Beware of enemy webs as speed is the rifters main defemce. Used correctly a ship like this can kill vessels twice its size.

Babylon 5

Babylon 5 was one of the most violent depictions of a traditional sci-fi future on TV thus far. I remember watching Star Trek and hoping that something would kick-off. It never did of course, diplomacy always won.

Babylon 5 was exactly the opposite to this endless peace. If diplomacy was used the protagonists would be assassinated throwing entire regions into war. There was always a murder and a fist fight every episode, it even had a head on a pike once. It was great. The Emmy award winning effects were produced on a bank of Amiga2000 platforms utilising Video-Toasters which was amazing to me at the time. Did you know they had a clock speed of only 7MHz!

A dark vision of the future, so dark it had shadows upon shadows. The tone of the show was as close to EvE Online I've seen so far, without the PODs...?
