Does the game cheat when it invades you? They always seem to take giant colonies every time with 1 transport ship, while I lose 10 trying to invade a medium size one.

One small thing you can do is try to avoid long, drawn-out bombardments. Every turn you bombard you are losing morale. So maybe try to do it in an overwhelming fashion, to minimize the morale-hit turns. Empire-wide morale structures are also great to offset the morale hits.

The next movie will "flash sideways" and all the characters will be talking to dead relatives, and then at the end they will all get on a starship to the afterlife.

I thought the romulan and klingon ships from TOS were "shared designs" because they ran out of budget and had to use one for the other at some point. :roll:

I have only experienced trek.icd as being "infected" and it is almost definitely a false positive, unless the original file was infected on the original CD-ROM 10 years ago. Update Avast, then try another scan of all those directories. Tell us what virus it supposedly is seeing in the other files. I...

Avast claims: (for trek.icd)

Malware name: Win32:Malware-gen
Malware type: Virus/Worm

Does it for both multi-installer and my cd-rom version.

Interesting. Yes it does seem to run fine without the file. Others have reported the problem on google so it seems like a false positive in the file. I guess if it isn't needed, it might save some hassle to just eliminate it like you said.

trek.icd - virus infection or false positive?

I was doing a full system scan with Avast, and it recognized all my trek.icd as being infected. I am thinking it was a false positive, but has anyone else experienced this problem? Also, in the process, the scanner ended up deleting the trek.icd file for my Hades install. :( I have the trek.icd from...

Long post is LOOOOOOOOONG. :lol: Some ideas: * Once the Borg have large cubes, I don't think any race could stand against them.

To not call this a Star Trek movie would like be calling Yesterdays Enterprise a non The Next Generation TV episode. That's just plain stupid. Yesterday's Enterprise was consistent with the established ST universe. All of the characters were "in character", everything was consistent with other TNG ...

Star Terk XI -- great film... ...Just not Star Trek! Definitely not Star Trek. But I disagree about the "great film" part. I'd say it's a mediocre or above-average action movie at best. The character development is hackneyed, the pacing is laughable, and it's dumbed-down to the 3rd grade level. All...

I doubt it affects crashing, but I bet it might reduce or eliminate the crashes where your only way out is to reset the machine?
