    very nice work to the author. Thumbs up dude ^_^

    you could add the following if you wish . DRADIS is an abbreviation for D-efense RAD-ar I-nformation S-ystem. I remember reading about it somewhere. A Viper is a classification of fighter craft , this goes as well for a cylon raider. While the Raptor is a multi-role craft that serves as a troop carrier or as an advance scouting craft. A battlestar is a classification of a capital ship. Galactica is a name for a battlestar.i.e. The Nimitz is a nuclear powered aircraft carrier.

    Actually DRADIS stands for "Direction, Range, and Distance". It doesn't really have anything to do with defense, its just a radar to detect ships.

    Direction and RAdial DIStance is a better possibility. Range and distance mean the same thing so it wouldn't make sense to include both of those terms.

    With the glossary, do you think you should add in Six's multiple identities/aliases? Gina Invigliere (sp?), Natalie, Shelley Godfrey, etc ?

    I mean, there's a lot of Sixes going around...

    Good idea. I'll add them this evening if I have some spare time.

    UPDATE - Or maybe I'll just add them right now. Gina Inviere, Shelley Godfrey and Natalie are now on the list.

    Cheers, 123home123.

    I couldn't remember Gina's last name exactly, that saves me looking it up, too!
