Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Yeah.. episode 5.. wow.. If people here disliked it you don't have to worry about me arguing with you on this one guys. As this episode broke me too, or more precisely it broke my enjoyment of the show. I didn't enjoy that at all. I thought maybe if I sleep on it I'd feel better but nope, today I'm ...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Episode 4 seen (belated).. WE'RE OFF!: Well things have finally taken off! Enjoying the fact we're back in space.. loved the look of the Romulan refugee colony (particularly in the flashback sequences) with the giant 'world tree' background, although in the opening planet shot I wish we'd seen the E...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Episode 3 seen: (spoiler alert) Not thrilled about how they continue to make Picard look slow, weak & frail. You watch him on talk shows and he zips around just fine lol! But I love the fact that in ep 3 it appears writers are trying to address one of those funny never explained issues from old trek...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Apparently CBS has posted the first episode of Picard on YouTube for a limited time. So, if you dont have All Access and want to check it out, you have til Feb 7 to watch it for free. Naturally it's region locked though urgh. Episode 2 of Picard seen. Glad it explains some of the mysteries & fan com...

Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

The first episode has aired.. My thoughts ( SPOILER ALERT ): I loved the opening shot with the camera closing in on the Enterprise D (which had some interesting design modifications) and going through the window into to the room.. the kind of shot you always wanted to see as a kid watching TNG but k...

Re: Screen Size on Newer Computers

The game is only max of 1280x960 Screen Size do to it made in 2001, modern in those days were only 17 inch lol back than!! Thanks captain obvious. :lol: Main point is if Armada 1's resolution options were fixed in a fan patch why on earth wasn't Armada 2's in it's fan patch? Is it because there's s...

Re: Screen Size on Newer Computers

If I end up playing with black bars at the side then so be it but it would be a shame after re-playing Armada 1 in widescreen to not get to with Armada 2 if it is somehow possible. :) Yeah it just doesn't make any sense. Right now everyone can download a fan patch for Armada 1 that allows you to pl...

Everspace 2 (Freelancer & WCPrivateer Like Game)

Well now we've got another one lol! One of the great bonuses of me making a Freelancer FB group a while back is that members alert me (the slightly obsessed fan lol) to all Freelancer & Wing Commander Privateer 'spiritual sequels' on the way haha. Been a good year so far.. first Rebel Galaxy Outlaw,...

Starpoint Gemini 3 (Freelancer & WCPrivateer Like Game)

Posted this in the BOTF forum a while back but since that's a separate forum community I may as well post this here too... Well here I was recently talking about Rebel Galaxy Outlaw here and now looks like we’ve got another game very similar to Freelancer and Wing Commander Privateer on the way, woo...

Posted this in the BOTF forum a while back but since that's a separate forum community I may as well post this here too... If there's any old Freelancer or Wing Commander Privateer fans here, Rebel Galaxy Outlaw has gotta be the closest thing I've seen to these games yet!!! Gorgeous planet landings ...

Sadly it looks like it probably won't get funding in time.. got pretty close too. ​​​​​​​:(

Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

I spent endless hours playing Master of Orion 1 in the 90s (which of course fueled my love of BOTF) so this sounds good! Pretty much a love letter to MOO1.. infinite techs.. dynamic AI.. wormhole/starlane game or not.. super customizable UI & gameplay. What's even crazier is that he's released the l...

Re: Master of Orion 3

Yeah I'm one of those weird people who liked MOO3. Expscially with the awesome fan patches that fix heaps of the bug and allow for higher resolutions, bigger galaxys and way more players (raises up to 32 I think).

Star Trek The Next Generation Echoes From the Past: Tribute & SS Nakatomi Walkthrough

Star Trek gaming got pretty darn awesome once we had 25th Anniversary, Judgement Rites, Final Unity, Birth of the Federation and Armada etc. But before that there wasn't much quality out there with just some 70s & 80s ship shooting games here and there. The first game that I found that really felt l...

Hi guys, Posted this ages ago over on the BOTF forums but since this forum is seperate and has a larger section devoted to other game modding I may as well post here too. :) I’ve been working on & off over the last 20yrs on a Star Trek TNG Doom level and after totally remaking/upgrading it I release...
