    How Does Someone Pilot A Grappler Ship? O.O''

    HELLO!:3

    ( Puts my finger to my forehead and thinks for a little while. )

    ...

    GGRrrrr! How does somone pilot a grappler ship? Does there have to be two people? In Outlaw Star when the ship goes into combat-mode, Gene uses two joysticks and I was wondering how the ship moves. ( Since Gene's controlling the grappler arms. ) Does Melfina do it?

    I'm going off of heads-up knowledge, but I believe Melfina in the cryo-tube controls most automatic functions of the Outlaw Star, including navigation, engine output, Sub-Aether drive, and emergency defense systems. The main auxiliary port manned by Jim I believe is used for managing transmissions as well as direct view from the bow, while Gene controls the ignition, maneuverability, and manipulation of grappler arms during combat. As for the side auxiliary ports periodically manned by Aisha and Suzuka, I don't really know what they're there for, except maybe to cover port and starboard view and man primary weapon systems such as turrets and missiles.

    ...I gave it my best shot, but I think Mantis can give you a better answer than I can at the moment.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    Well I suppose most of the ship works like a regular ship, once in grappler combat mode the arms and maneuverability are done through a combination of the joysticks and pedals :<
