Re: The Dominion

Hi all, I started playing Supremacy recently, and I must congratulate all those involved. Graphically, it is far superior to the original game, as you would expect after all this time (22 years after the original was released). I fully realize that this is still an ongoing work in progress, and that...

changing empire colours and name colours

Hi all,

Can someone please explain how to change an empire's territory shading on the map, and the corresponding colour of the lettering for the planet names. I did do this ages ago with hex editing but am unsure now how this is done with the ultimate editor

Regards
Geon

Re: Picard is back in a new Trek series!!!

I have to say that I too am disappointed with the direction this franchise has followed. The Abrams movies are nothing more that Star Wars in Star Trek clothing. Star Trek Discovery lost me when I saw what they had done to the Klingons and their ships. And now Star Trek Picard seems to be doing the ...

Re: Picard is back in a new Trek series!!!

I too don't recall any mention of the destruction of Romulus in the prime timeline. The closest one gets is Picard's statement in TNG episode "All Good Things" when he states that " the Klingons have taken over the Romulan Empire"....(I'm still trying to work out how THAT happened) One should treat ...

Re: I am thinking of making a mod

Just read this post sfb.swa-gaming.org/node/333 concerning a site owner having to take down his ssd site for star fleet battles because of pressure from the company.
This is a worrying development. Can organisations and companies now claim your work under new copyright laws?

Re: I am thinking of making a mod

Thanks Thunderchero....it's a sad state of affairs when Star Trek fans have to question the legality of their own work

I am thinking of making a mod

Having seen what happened to the Axanar fan film, and now finding out that star trek renegades has been forced to drop all star trek references in their future episodes, makes me wonder if this site will be similarly affected. Specifically, I'm wondering whether future mods will have to have the sta...

Re: hi everyone

Thanks, krazeexxl, Yes, the current situation does indeed look bleak. The current franchise owner's "we know what the fans want and let's make as much money as we can" attitude has destroyed the star trek we all grew up on. In its day, star trek was a trailblazer in so many ways, from special effect...

Re: hi everyone

Thanks Flocke, I'm digging up my old ship articles and updating them. I was disappointed with the "Axanar" episode. This showed such promise, and was "nipped in the bud" by the powers that be. What an arrogant display of disrespect for the fans. From what I've seen of Star Trek Discovery, my disappo...

hi everyone

Hi all, Sorry it's been so long, but it's been a hectic few years. There were some deaths in the family, then some job changes, so little time for the forum. Things are slowly coming back to normal, so I hope to engage in more stimulating discussions with my fellow botf members in the near future Re...

star trek renegades

Hi everyone, Has anyone seen the new Star Trek Renegades movie yet? You can view it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eE2Wgop9VLM on youtube. Many of the actors from the some Star Trek TV series are involved. I especially like the new Klingon battlecruisers....seem to be a development of the K'ti...

Mickey Rourke's face

Mickey Rourke starred in a recent western called dead in tombstone, where he plays the devil. I've seen the whole film, and what really surprised me is that he now looks exactly like William Shatner!!!! Maybe they both go to the same plastic surgeon! Here is the trailer, tell me what you think https...
