No, tech like operations add missions to the pool, without the tech they are not there in any way. That said general wisdom is to unlock all the extra missions you can unless your certain you can't win them or there really awful even so like the eurosydicate deal.

What is the deal with the "Superior Being" message and the -250 fame?

A random event on "Gals are superior" path.

Thanks Iazo!  It happens about once a month so I was wondering what on Earth it could be about.

I am finally entering the proper midgame air game, and boy there are a lot of crafts to choose from.
Are there spreadsheets with all craft stats for convenient comparison (in some old tread perhaps)?

How do you use the arcane weapon of the Jellyfish craft? I picked it up and I can shoot it, but it just impacts the wall of the cockpit. I tried shooting it straight up or down, but I just can't get it to go anywhere.

you need to open the window (in direction you want shoot). Same way like you opening any doors but not going through them. then you can shoot out of Jellyfish.

Thanks! Didn't realize the windows weren't open, as you can see out of them even when they're closed.

They adjust how much of your current stun you recover each turn, the normal multiplier is .036, savage with pain res 2 is .085.  So about double.

Thanks.
Another thing:
When I dogfight enemy ufo (say mobile ninja base),  causing it some damage and then disengage (or my plane is destroyed, whatever), does it remain damaged?
If so, can it repair on the go or must it "land" to repair, to restore it's HP (allowing me to assault it)?

Does somebody know where to get "Pyramid portal remains"?
The black Pyramids in the Undead swarm missions don't seem to drop them, I haven't found a way to damage the portal looking things inside the pyramids base either.
Is there a way to destroy the portal thingy inside the pyramids base, or do black Pyramids drop corpses if you don't kill them with the heavy cannons of your tanks?

Otherwise the only mission I haven't done is an Star Gods Silver Towers ship, so does it drop there (I mean Ethereals do like pyramid architecture)?
