Exactly Nell, though our opinions on X3 differ widely, we can at least agree it made an X4 very unlikely without some major ret-conning, which I'm not sure I want. Personally I would just love if we could somehow erase X3 from existence, but as thats not possible, I think an FC2 is the only way to go.
