Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Best of luck in your final battle, Captain. All of us here at the starbase and down on the surface are pulling for you. Make us proud, and set us free! Incidentally, as an aside, this dialog from the Ur-Quan: “There is something wrong here… something which makes my sheath retract and my talons ooze....

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Too cruel, D999, too cruel. As for those module slots, here's how I usually set up mine: 2 Hellbores (first 2 slots), 1 PDL, 1 Hi-ef fuel tank, 2 Crew pods With those last 10 slots eaten up, there is no way to turn the Vindicator into an effective warship anymore. However, it still behooves you not ...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

*Sigh* ^ Spoiler tags, please? Huh, this might just be ignorance on my part, but I was under the impression that all the voice-acting in the 3DO release was fan recordings. How "official" is the official release? (Though I see in the credits that Paul Reiche III himself did the voices of the Mycon a...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

The whiny Utwig voice is the official one from the 3DO release. This was a serious point of contention back years ago, to the point where you got that somber version, which is (I would assume, at least least I did) what all the folks who originally played the DOS version imagined they sounded like. ...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

I don't think ship construction is especially spoilery, so I'll give my opinion straight: Considering you have piles of RU, and still have never suffered a single crew loss outside of that unfortunate encounter with the Starrunner, I questions Hayes's judgement on this. My take: Only 1 point defense...

Re: Sequels strife

Any of the races and other concepts from earlier SC lore that was used in 3, was used under license, which means that Fred and Paul maintain copyright and creative control over those elements. So if they should decide to do exactly what Legend did with those characters (however unlikely that might b...

Re: Sequels strife

This one part though strikes me as being vague enough to the point of potential problems: We were able to come to a very specific understanding on the alien characters and races — how they look and act. Stardock is dropping all trademark registration of the alien names and won't use the described a...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

One of only two non-standard game overs in SC2, the other being surrendering to the Ur-Quan. SC3 had more littered about, and they made far less thematic sense, but enough about that. Is this even spoiler tag worthy? Pretty sure we've seen the surrender scene, and the device activation was just tri...

Of course, the lawyers are the big winners from the whole fiasco.
As they always are. Sometimes the legal system seems to have been designed primarily to keep lawyers gainfully employed.

Well done. Welcome to the home stretch, Captain.
