The perfect storm

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

I can certainly understand that :) A lot happened during the weekend and that comic is pretty distracting. It's a good time to be an SC fan it seems.

You definitely don't need any more than you used to to get me to be glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that.

Just an FYI, Ur-Quan Masters has been ported to the Pandora handheld. (a bit of discussion over here) (download here)

I don't know if it's interesting news, but I thought I'd mention it.

P.S. Sorry, I can't really get into this comic - it somehow doesn't feel like SC to me. It's more like a serious space anime or Western "military in space" film. The Star Control universe I know is not so serious or formal.
But I do enjoy "That Ur-Quan Master" (added it to the big list of webcomics that I follow). I'm partial to the Spathi. ;)

It's certainly interesting news! I've been following the pandora project via another forum I frequent and I've been thinking of buying one sometime ;). Now that UQM has been ported to that thingy it's even more reason to go and buy one (although the price just sucks monkey balls in hell)

Well, you do get a lot for your money. It comes out to being cheaper than an iPhone, I think. I'm about 350-450 in the queue, so I'm just waiting for mine to arrive. One of the first things I do when I get it will be to play the third Monkey Island game. :)

There's a nice mini-review (with video) of the device over here.

As I see it, the captain is not serious or formal, and many aliens are not. But some are, and I think this would be one of those places that's more structured.

I'll be focusing on the mesh and conflict of these sometime vaguely soon in my fanfic.
