Everyone keeps asking and making blog posts about what happened to everyone here. Well, you’ve heard of Facebook? That’s right, the place you go argue about Star Trek topics every single day. If you want more activity here, be here, bring your friends over. There you go!
The only thing that is living in a dark corner here is me. I’m getting rid of 1,000s of spammers, new spam members are running wild awaiting approval, bad accounts and coding a whole new place where Star Trek fans can safely dwell without ads (because I personally pay for this website), and unlike that other social site who has been under the gun lately there are no security risks here, nor are there information dumps or news feeds that are backwards (Facebook). But all the ‘events’, and annoying things people abuse here are about to go! I’m going to have to double my budget monthly to keep this place going and update it, so it is our hope that many people return when it’s more streamlined.
I will send out a full site wide message to all members to let them know of the changes when they are complete. Until then, go post in the forums instead of posting a blog.
Jen’Hadar and The Others
As regular readers will know I've become a bit of a fan/obsessive over Attack Wing.
Which made Friday's announcement from Wizkids somewhat worrying. At least initially.
It appears that in February 2016 the game manufacturer will be delivering us Star Trek: Frontiers, offering a whole new spin on the franchise through roleplay and strategy. According to the promo material that landed this weekend, it will offer something new with players beaming away teams to planet surfaces and getting a different game each time.
Apparently it's going to be a bit of a spin on Mage Knight which is not a game I'm familiar with in any way so for myself it'll be a great, unexplored experience to dive into. I suspect for those people who have played that game it's not going to be a big deal. The Venture Tile System is the piece which will probably be key in making this stand out from Attack Wing and is the element borrowed from Mage Knight. This means that every game is constructed effectively…
June's Attack Wing expansions have arrived and after a week of getting to slam them through their paces, let's look at the results...
As usual there are three diverse ships to add/subtract/mix and match with your existing fleet(s) although how many of us have been gagging for the Bajoran scout ship Ratosha may well be the biggest mystery of the year.
Probably one of the first model versions of the vessel which could usually be found ferrying just about anybody from Bajor to Deep Space Nine, I can only think players will be wanting to buy a few of these to go alongside their Bajoran interceptor(s). A low squadron points starship (18), the Ratosha won't get you anywhere at pace but with your options for this faction fairly limited you're going to be stuck with very few other places to go. That low total does mean that an "average" 40 squadron points per ship is going to get you a tidy amount of upgrades which you might want to choose from the accompanying pack.
Options for captain come from the season two trilogy opener…
They call it "Star Trek 3", which in itself is confusing, but now the word on the streets is Justin Lin may be using new worlds and unknown species in his version of the JJ Star Trek Universe. Is he the right guy for the newest Star Trek movie? Does he know Star Trek? We all know JJ had his true passion in Star Wars and to many it showed when he made the Star Trek movies which fell short to so many fans. Here is a quote Lin made in an interview with Deadline.com where you can read the full interview.
"Growing up, my parents had this little fish and chips restaurant in Anaheim in the shadows of Disneyland, and they didn’t close until 9 PM. As a family, we didn’t eat dinner until 10 PM, and we would watch the original Star Trek every night at 11. My dad worked 364 days a year, only took Thanksgiving off, and from age 8 to 18, the only time I could hang out with my parents was by staying late. And every night, it was Star Trek on Channel 13 in L.A. That was my childhood. All my friends were Star Wars kids but I didn’t go to the movies, so I was the Star Trek kid. Thinking about this, it became a very personal and very emotional decision."
I read this and I immediately get excited. Here is a guy taking over the new Trek franchise and he actually states it is a major part of his youth and his family time together, which is how many of us know Star Trek on a personal level. This is very promising. He goes on to suck me in more in the same interview.
“As great as JJ’s films were, there’s still a lot to be mined from these characters, They haven’t really gone on their five-year mission, so what we experienced in the TV show hasn’t been touched on yet. That sets up an opportunity for exploration and the deeper you go, the more you are examining humanity. Those are the things that I absorbed…Continue
