I'll be honest. Reading through the Jupiter's upgrades was too much info-dump and made my eyes cross. After getting to the point where the Edit needed made, I skipped the rest. It just didn't do anything to really add to the story, imho. The Real Story was the Sanghelli (sp) meeting.

Nitram: You -are- beautiful. Anyone tries to tell you otherwise kill them.

You may be right, but she's the Cool New Ship (TM) for this story and I like describing warships. I'd planned to include it as an Interlude like I have with other stuff but this and the Sanghelli meeting were too short to do separately so I squashed them together. But thanks for the help.

Will Nemesis , assuming it survives, ultimately be retrofitted to Jupiter standard, or are the changes fundamental enough that the "refit" is "lift up nameplate, slide new hull underneath" ?

The changes would be far too significant to try and refit Nemesis to that standard.

Yeah but she needs to be. The Covenant are bringing the big guns to Reach.

Despite all that firepower, I don't think its feasible that it will get unscathed from that battle, even with Nemesis and other ships at its side. The Covenant is far stronger than other factions they have faced and they won't have much in terms of surprise advantage this time.

You're quite right, the Covenant are bringing nearly a thousand ships, 40% of their remaining strength, including no less that eight supercarriers - it's gonna be a very bloody battle
