At the end of the game, we see Intrepid becoming a training carrier. In the final scene, Blair's back with Confederation patches on his flight suit, which Maniac and the rookies also have. But it also appears that *Panther* is wearing Confed patches as well on her flight suit. Was the UBW Navy re-absorbed into Confed or was this a special case with the Intrepid? There seems to be some precedent for crossing back over, as both Hawk and VADM Wilson return to Confed (and Wilson reverts back to a Navy Captain to command Midway).
