Escape Pods...

Just recently, I was coming around with a bomber on a kill run, and one of my wingmen launched his escape pod into the center of my plectron barrage. Needless to say, I'll be writing a mournful letter to his family, explaining how he died valiantly in combat.

The issue at hand is the squadron chatter. The escape pod did not make an announcement that it was hit, nor did I broadcast a message stating I struck a friendly escape pod. I just killed one of my own men with my own carelessness, if I am a decent commander, I'd make that kind of mistake known, as I'd expect of any of my men if they made a similar mistake.

Poor guy you can't aim escape pods. But many a time I've died from friendlies while I fled.

was the old bean hit before hand or was it an act of cowardice that caused him to eject?
