Just in case you missed it, Stardock is getting the SC copyrights from Atari, with intention of making a new SC game!
They are in contacts with Paul and Fred already. Brad Wardell, the CEO of Stardock has even posted on SCDB.
Hopefully the long wait for SC is soon to be over.
Hey guys! Just wanted to make a quick note here that for some people, their posts were going into a moderated queue because LJ set some settings and then didn't tell me about them. Which is great, thanks LJ. BUT I changed the setting back so you can post all you want again and it should go through!
More on-topic, while looking for DOS game MIDI rippers to try and get the midis out of Rings of the Magi (I still haven't found one rrrrrghhh), I happened to come across a midi collection for Star Control 3! Who even cares you might be saying to yourself, and you'd be right because most of the music in SC3 sucked. BUT STILL the old XMIs I got from PNF way back when never worked for me and I couldn't find any other versions of the music until now! It's entirely possible I was looking in the wrong places, who knows. But if you ever wanted midis of the SC3 music to, I don't know, remix or laugh at or something, I got them from here
Oh and I since I guess I didn't post this here before (??) have a Chenjesu!
Last year we played a rousing game of SC themed Mafia over on the SCDB, merrily slaying suspected hierarchy infiltrators. We even had a participant from here, so we're hoping for the same good luck again! This year, the Alliance is doing the infiltrating. Do you have what it takes to find the spies or slay the oppressors? In Death 999's own words:
You are a hierarchy fleet stationed near a defense station. This is no mere common starbase; it is a fortress with a main weapon capable of destroying any vessel weaker than a dreadnaught. It was placed to protect an integrated construction and development facility operating in a planetary system. This is the facility in which the Ilwrath cloak was transferred to a ship the Ilwrath were capable of building, for example, and it can be expected that more improvements to hierarchy ships will be made. The AFS has attempted assault -going far around the battle line with a sneak attack -and failed. But now they are resorting to subterfuge. By the time play begins, they will have killed the master in charge of the fleet and faded into the shadows. Each of you will play a specific character of a known race, commanding a known ship. Some of you, however, will be under the mind control of Syreen. This will allow more coherent roleplaying, and the defense station provides a mechanism for the lynching. Therefore, I expect that this scenario maintain coherence to the end, unlike the previous which collapsed into a degree of absurdity toward the end. Once we have a roster of players, I will describe the fleet and secretly select the syreen players. Then they will choose which ships to infiltrate, and then other characters will be assigned randomly. For ease, the characters' names will be set to your screennames. With sufficient signups, I expect we can start as soon as three weeks. The participation requirement will be modest, with a day/night cycle of five days.
Hi. I'm new.
I, of course, love frungy. And Star Control 2
. My favorites are the Utwig and the Pkunk. I find the Utwig potentially very interesting, with the way their culture evolved around masks and ceremonies. Also, their depressed ramblings are hilarious. The Pkunk just make me ridiculously happy. The Spathi are great, too.
I'm kind of a lurker at heart, but I have some fic to offer to help placate the fandom gods.Title:

Fwiffo, various OCs.Word count:
Fwiffo and the crew of the the StarRunner have been given an important mission. Someday, they might even get around to it.Notes:
Just a bit of silliness that just wouldn't end. The plot is pretty silly; I admit it was just an excuse to write various races interacting. It also doesn't have any ZEX, I'm afraid. On the plus side, Fwiffo! :D( Greetings and salutations!Collapse )
