      How many skills has your marines?

      You can train it in four groups: hullbreaking, fighting, haking and another point (Don't know the real english names )

      The maximum are five stars in all groups. You can train all skills (except for fight) in every station which sells marines. Fighting you can only train by capture ships (must be succesful ).

      You should start with Tm's and M6's to get your fight points up..

      Hi Melcahya!

      Capturing capital ships is a very tricky part of X3:TC. It takes usually more than 50 tries to capture one of the big boys. You should use highly trained marines (as KOZAKI said, five stars in every discipline are recommended) and at least 10 of them. I suggest you start capturing by choosing a slower and less armed vessel, than an Agamemnon. Maybe a TL (you can order them to an 'Unknown sector'- no police forces), or even better the ARENA version of the TL's. They are unarmed and veeeeeery slow.

      Then make use of the 'boarding pods' (can carry up to five marines) and the M7M fregattes. Even if you do all this, to get into the capturing of capital ships, it requires a lot of perseverance and valerian to be successful. It took me about 40 tries before i captured my first TL although i read a very fine post by GALDER, who described the whole procedure very precisely and helped many of us. But as far as i know, this post is only available in german.

      Hope you'll get your Agamemnon soon...
