Wait... are you one of the people that thinks Satan planted fossils in the ground to confuse everyone? :lol:

Kinda cool but kinda boring. I'm a lazy person of the computer age, I want to see a 3D reconstructed animated bunch of those primates moving around in trees and whatnot. Actually I'm more fascinated by earlier times in history, like the Devonian period, and the first land animal/fish crawling out of...

Krazee: Install MoO2 using the DOS installer. Install DOSBox 0.72. Then go here:

That tells you the configuration you need. I just played a 3-player game over my niece's house, unfortunately my nephew went to bed but we will continue tomorrow. :wink:

I've heard that the next movie is going to bring back Khan.

Sometimes Master of Magic crashes when an overland enchantment is cast, like Just Cause or whatever, it will come up with the "completed" announcement and then get these vertical colored lines similar to the Matrix. Ha. It's pretty infrequent though. I found a website for Master of Orion 2 which giv...

Sorry, one last MoO2 question - anyone know how to make it error-free in XP? I wouldn't mind firing it up again. :) I had to install some patch to get the mouse working, but it ends up that after maybe 200 turns, half the text goes black and it's unplayable. :( I think I heard that some people run i...

Fleets can always be in motion so there is really no comparison to chess... in chess each player gets their own move and chance to capture. BotF fleet movement would be like playing chess where all the pieces can move at once, and each move happens simultaneously. I.e., really nothing like chess. :l...

SURE WOULD BE NICE!! :roll: My last game I played Romulans on Hard. I was doing decently, I found some awesome systems and had about 8 or 9 systems. Wasn't in the corner, but at least had the bottom middle. Encountered Klingons to the north of me, they managed to take one of my new systems before I ...

I'm finished arguing for now, clearly the people that liked it aren't gonna stop liking it. :lol: But I will say -- I never bothered buying Nemesis, and I doubt I will buy this one either.

It could have been a reboot AND a good Star Trek movie. Too bad it wasn't. Again, "IMO". Whether you like it depends on what you care about and what you are looking for. If you don't mind shallow writing, ridiculous science and frantic scene pacing, you might enjoy everything else. My brother-in-law...

Thats fair enough... but to say its theoretically possible!! 8O 8O 8O . If you can explain how to get around the uncertainty principle, achieve absolute zero, change the known and proven laws of Physics in our universe and make it work mathematically then that makes a theory. I just explained how t...

Im afraid there is and its completely impossible.... (sorry) :wink: (Heisenberg compensator etc) First off, it's NOT theoretically impossible. I'm sorry, but I'm definitely not one of the physicists who worship at the altar of quantum mechanics. QM is very useful, its principles can predict certain...

When TNG came along i hated it! ... My point? A canon rule was broken but no one talks about it or complains about it anymore (and belive me , we did complain ) because over time it's become accepted. I understand your analogy, but I don't really agree. TNG was a great show, and that's why you grew...

As for technology issues that others have complained about, lets not forget that warp travel is not actually possible and neither is matter transportation of live beings (I understand some experiments have been done), so before people complain about red matter creating black holes, let's not forget...

For a second I thought you were going to blame Borg nanoprobes on Wesley Crusher's science experiment. :lol: As far as the Borg taking over -- yes, it seems the obvious conclusion from a lot of angles. Voyager - Endgame shows us that the Borg transwarp hub can put cubes right next to Sol system. If ...
