Ofcause the BEST ship to destroy the SA-Matra's shield generators, has to be the Pkunk. Fast enough to run rings arround those green and firey things, and with rapid fire on  port and starport, you can just cruise past those generaters, shoot, and go to refuel. Of cause, the occational "Halleluja" also helps.  Cheesy

If I may, I'd like to compare Starcontrol with the unfinnished cathedral in Barcalona. The (briliant) architect died before it's completion. Since then, many people wanted to complete the cathedral, but their attempts just doesn't add up. Why? Because the original architect had the completed idea in his head, and any attempt to complete it will deviate from the original plan.

Many people can write many sequals to SC2. Maybe even better than the original authors. But only the original authors has the original big idea. Only they truly knows what should've followed. The work of anyone else is mere guess work.

Furthermore, the new ships in SC3 does not come close to the creativeness of the new ships in SC2. The same goes for the new aliens. The fact that you can no longer navigate freely between stars and planets was a step backwards. Many aliens look too humanoid, even some of the originals. Actually, I prefer the poorer graphics, because it leaves some space for the imagination. SC3 should've build on the look and feel of SC2, aspecially when it comes to navigation. How boring is it to click on a planet, and then sit back and watch your ship moves on its own.

SC3 had a good story, and I don't regret playing it. But unlike SC2, I will never feel the need to play SC3 ever again.

I'm just wondering. Does anyone know whether the authors are planning to make the REAL Starcon3? I'm not interested if the original people are not involved, as is the case with that imitasion, star control 3. Tipical of the times, gameplay was sacrificed on the altar of good graphics.  At the very least, the original authors must write the story line, otherwise it'll be just another imitasion.
