Who says they're un-moderated?

  The only ones I know of offhand are George Barr and Erol Otus. 

  The game credits list the following:
Art and Animation
    George Barr
    Paul Reiche III
    Erol Otus
    Greg Johnson
    Kyle Balda
    Jeff Rianda
    Taunya Shiffer
    Leonard Robel
    Greg Hammond
    Armand Cabrera
    Silicon Knights

  How many of those are "art" and how many are "animation" I don't know.  I assume that PR3 was an animator.

This probably has been discussed before, but I don't remember.

I once thought of remaking the slides. Then I thought that the originals must still exist somewhere and that they could be scanned with higher resolution. I remember someone saying that the original picture of Talana is hanging on a wall in TFB office.

Someone from the UQM team could also tell me whether higher resolution versions of the pictures would be useful at all.

I also would like to know how the slides and comm screen pictures were made.

I think that tracking down the original art will be difficult.  However, there's a good chance that the original artists have slides or other photographs of the paintings.  You might be able to convince them to send you copies for some money.  http://www.well-of-dreams.com/thingamajig/science_fiction2.htm

  I use Maya, myself.  It's very powerful, but has a steep learning curve. 

Hmmmm, maybe we could form a mutually beneficial relationship.  And by "mutually" I mean "would you like to help me out" type relationship.
See, when I say "mutually" I mean "I would like to help you out...  if you pay me."

The problem lies with my inadequacies in the art department.  I have the creations in my head; however, getting it from my brain to a digital medium has always been an issue.

Do you accept this challenge?  If you do, I'll go into further details about what I'm wanting to do.
I welcome commissions.  I can work by the hour, or you can tell me what you want and I'll quote you a price for the project, but there will be a limit on how many changes I'm willing to do in that case.

Oh yes they do! He was one of our best posters. However could you forget, Eth?

I consider LHOOQ's putative age to be no more realistic than Nuclear's.

Attention Eth!
This broadcast is to inform you of your defeat.
We, the Kohr-Ah have destroyed all the sentient species in this region of space....
And now we have eliminated the starbase orbiting your planet Earth as well.
Your efforts to resist us are futile.
You are defeated!
'The hell?

I get the gist of what's going on, but is there any chance we could see a special version without the semi-consciousness effects? I'd like to read the dialog in its entirety.
Sorry.  Some of that stuff is deliberately covered up.  I don't want to give too much away yet.  Perhaps in a few weeks, when some of chapter 2 has been revealed. 

Only one more page of Chapter One is left!  Jesse's probably inking it right now!  I'm about to script the first page of chapter 2 todayolay!

Moronic Maria gave every indication that she was an intelligent teen-age girl.  She was a riot.  I hope she comes back some day, but I don't think it's likely.

Its sad that their all abandoned now, but then again the internet is cruel. Very cruel. Unfortunately, all the links in there are broken but it was at least fun to see what I would have dumped a bit of my social life into were it 1999 :P. Any other PONAF Precursors?

I didn't know that three-year-olds used the internet!   ;D

No, more like this.

But it looks like there's also The Pages of Now & Forever's Forums.  How confusing!

  Now, if I'm not mistaken, Guillaume's board was the original SCDB, while the first board on PoNaF was called the "All About Star Control Forum" or somesuch.  At some point, the SCDB was moved to Chad's site, and then eventually the two fora were merged into the predecessor of the forum you are reading right now. 

  Do I have my history right here?

@Luki: Yes, we really don't "get" the metric system in the US.  It's slowly creeping in in some areas (2 liter bottles of soda, medicines are generally measured in metric) but by and large we use the old imperial measurements.
