Re: Do you know the ancestor of all Starcon games ?

Also, as mentioned on the SMF forum and on UQMF : http://groups.google.com/group/starflighttlc So I picked this up and tried it and it's not bad. Even makes me want to finish it.

Re: Someone please explain the Forum Vessel.

And it'd be cool if different levels of upgrade responded to your post count on the forums, like status and rank. Save the utwig bomb for when you've got 500+ posts.

Re: Please welcome the *new* Star Control Discussion Board!!

Holy Heck Lukipela - how come my presursor avatar thingamee is pimped out with the utwig bomb? :) The icon for you being online is the Vindicator at the end of the game fully loaded. The offline icon which is not here yet would be the equipment you have at the beginning of the game. -zenZmurfy It's...

Re: Differences between SC1 and SC2

Star Control's Progeny - Strange Adventures in Infinite Spac

Woo, hit the limit of the subject buffer. http://www.digital-eel.com/sais/ One of the many things that Star Control got right and most space games before and since was the very personal feeling of attachment to the quirky alien races you saw in the in animated captain pictures in melee.
