MY 2356.  How did Santiago figure out that I was about to whack her to bits?  Well hey I'm all about the pretext.  I savor my Noble reputation in the face such infamy.

I am obsessively building Flechette Defense Systems at every base, even now, out of the perceived fear that "someone could hit me with a missile".  Now who could that be at this point, eh?

And now the moment of truth.  Do I take the Spartan capitol, stop the sandboxing exercise and win the game?  I think so.  If nothing else, being pestered by so many cities has gotten to be a drag.  I think I'd rather play a new game with the 1.14 rules.  This game didn't get the major changes in Fusion, Quantum, and Singularity engines until the very end of the game, so I don't actually know what that progression is like.

The replay movie was abrupt, with a sudden splotch of green exploding at the end.  The area in the center without green was a Pirate enclave with only sea bases ringing the coast of the continent.

Yes go away!  Quit smothering me.  The moral of this story is no matter how much you think you're going to sandbox, you're going to conquer everyone eventually.
