Title: Why wasn't the Forbidden Ark launched into the sun?

Did they want to keep the original body just in case? Or was it because Weil tampered with it? He does seem to call it down in the Z2 ending...

Are weapons in Zero era still solar powered? If so, putting a big bad robot directly in it's energy source isn't a really bright idea. (sun - bright, see?)

.. hey, it's better than no answer at all.

Because even a Solar powered robot can totally withstand the heat of the sun.

It was because I dont know, I guess X must have had something to do with it. Omega was tried legally, and yet, never retired, just exiled into space. Im guessing to avoid "more bloodshed". I mean, Even Weil lived. In his case, a punishment worse than death. Eternal life in the wastelands caused by his war.

This is Omega we're talking about.  Are we so certain that the sun would actually have destroyed him before making escape from the ark possible?  He did fight Leviathan and Fefnir without taking a scratch.  The guy road a missile (I can't remember if it was nuclear) to ground zero and floated away completely unharmed.

If he could have broken free enough to save himself before the rocket plunged into the sun, surely he would have broken himself free regardless of where the rocket was heading? And well, surviving the occasional shot or explosion is a lot different from being submerged in plasma.

Keep in mind he is INSIDE the rocket. Not soaking in the sunlight. And even then, he would be stuck in space. And if he could somehow propel himself towards earth, theres still descention to deal with. falling through the atmosphere, burning up, and then crash landing. Im sure even Omega Can't survive that. Weil himself only barely survived it due to his regenerative properties, and his fusion with Ragnarok. (end even then, his consciousness survived in questionable fashion)

But Omega, who is merely an overpowered super robot inside a protective and empowering armor, isn't THAT lucky.

I mean, hey, it took Weil to redirect his rocket for a reason.

It was X and Zero's decision (or just X's?) to show compassion instead of out right blowing the enemy apart. Omega and Weil were spared death, and instead imprisoned Omega and exiled Weil.

Well, Omega maybe, but the Humans of the time were the ones who took Weil's justice in their own hands. His cyberization and exile were both illegal. Or as Copy X Mk ll put it, they did not follow official channels. (which would account or the extreme punishment he received.  X would never allow such a punishment. Exile maybe, but not what was done to his body.

Omega, for all intents and purposes, was but a bi-product of the philosophy of complete control X opposed, and but a person made solely to be a weapon in a madman's scheme. Remember, Vile was the true mastermind, Omega simply followed orders. Omega cannot be blamed for the tragedy of Elf Wars as much as Vile can. Promoting Neo Arcadia's ideals Omega would be given a fair trial and under the rule of the kind Master X, retirement for crimes not wholly his own should not be an option.

Furthermore, Omega was originally intended as a weapon to end the irregular war. Without Dr. Vile to guide him, he is a valuable asset for humanity in the fight against irregulars; the ultimate Repliroid, created to be immune to the Sigma Virus, capable of harnessing Dark Elf to its full potential. Omega despite his crimes, is still Neo Arcadian.

Haha, so was I.

Seconded, er, Thirdeded. I think.

On a side note, having played through all of the ZERO series, I don't remember anything about a "Forbidden Ark".

I did not know that. So did Weil put in that destructive programming during his creation or what?

Taken from the track name, it is the space vessel shaped like a sword which held Omega trapped in orbit around the Earth.

Near the end of the Irregular Wars, Vile proposed Project Elpis; the operation to create a Repliroid capable of controlling all others using Dark Elf's ability. The humans supported it, but Dr. Vile betrayed the humans and instead used Omega to establish his new world order. It was Vile that created and programmed Omega, possibly using aspects of the original personality Wily created for Zero.
