The First Mention[edit]

The First mention of a "Cargomaster" or "Cargo king" was in the House Davion Source book as MILITARY dropships that were in production in 3025. There were Civillian Vessles that were in production at the time that were NOT named, there were also 10 unnamed designs that were lost with the fall of the Star League... if i were inclined to be charitable i would assume that the powers that be were eventually going to write the 3025 version, but Warner's response was that House Davion Source book was wrong because it had the nerve to contradict his articles.--Cameron 13:56, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

I hadn't even written the article when you posted that! I'll add it to the Bibliography. Dirk Bastion 14:03, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
In Universe Possibilities are that there was a 3025 Tech version of this ship that was produced some time between end of the production of the High Tech model and the circa 3025-3028 publication of comstars manual for dealing with house davion. alternative is that ship in 3025 reused the name but was totally different. We will not know until/unless Catalyst decides to fix Warners error.--Cameron 16:23, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

New book trumps all[edit]

This is a way to fix previously contradictory information such as Katrina Steiner being in two places at the exact same date, but new book contradicting single-ever-mention of something is poor research.--Cameron 16:23, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Note: Drop Ships and Jump Ships was not intended to be a Comprehensive Production list (i.e. "if its not there it did not exist" shield that Warner attempted to use it as) only a list of the Most common .--Cameron 16:23, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
