I wonder if this new Titan Monitor will have anything to do with the MFQ article on monitors? It is entirely possible that CGL writers have gone ahead and created non-jump capable WarShips and used the Titan class name for an entirely new ship rather than an adaptation of the old Titan class fighter carrier. Otherwise, they would have designed the vessel as a Titan PWS.— The preceding unsigned comment was provided by Tekteam26 (talkcontribs) 06:54, 7 July 2011‎.

Hmm. TPTB have denied the possibility of WarShips without jump cores (usually referred to as 'Monitors' by the fan community), but the SDS control vessels are essentially that, having been built from WarShips with dysfunctional jump drives. They were described as early as BC Story The Last Full Measure, but the exact role, configuration and importance of these ships was only retconned in in JTP:Terra. Frabby 08:57, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
The Titan Monitor isn't a WarShip. It's a DropShip variant from TRO:Prototypes.--Mbear 11:21, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
There's two distinct issues here: TekTeam26 has been a proponent of "Monitors" as WarShips without drive cores for a long time; separately from that, TPTB have now elected to use the old naval designation "Monitor" for a DropShip which - as far as I gathered - would otherwise have been designated a Pocket Warship. I was merely pointing out that 'Monitor' (non-jumpy) WarShips were effectively introduced with the SDS-2 control Nagas. Frabby 11:57, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
