I can just see the scene"

Inside ONI HQ Manticore

"excuse me, sir, I just got this strange message."

"Strange how"

"Well, its from the SL, actually the header is the commerce department for starters. Secondly it seems to be 75 seconds of raw feed from several Solly recon drones. Third its from Beowulf..."

Yes, Honor used a Hermes Buoy in AAC. However, a Hermes Buoy is NOT the same thing as a RD. Honor could only handle a few pods with the Hermes Buoy, I'm surprised that RDs would have enough communications to talk to any significant number of Apollo control missiles. There are just a lot more RDs than Hermes Buoys around Beowulf.


What I remember is that the Hermes buoy was used to communicate worh Lester, not control pods. Communicating with pods happened using keyhole 2 to the Mk 23 e.

It was revealed much later that the 7(?) pods Honor used to intimidate Tourville were as many as she could control at that range (because she had to go through the Hermes more senstive FTL receiver?) It isn't explicitly stated why she was bluffing, but she was definitely beyond normal Apollo ACM communications range.

Answers! I got lots of answers!

David has stated that it was because she knew could kill them all, and would if she needed to, but preferred to convince him to surrender be pretending that she could do it from absurdly far out of his effective range.
