I wonder if there would be giant galactic casino/hotel/nightclub places that all the races of our galaxy could just hang and chill out. If so, I think this would be a good investment. I would be honarary king, of course, and only demand the best for me. Pretty soon, I would become so incredibly rich (and handsome), that someone will step up and asassinate me.(bullet-proof vest)
And it goes on and on and on.

Star Wars/Star Wars books. Is Terminator a Sci-Fi? Yeah, I guess. Hitchhiker's Guide was deinetly a strong inspiration.
Next Generation and the original Star Trek movies.

Sighh...I suppose you're not a King of the Hill fan. Greatest show on Earth.

This sounds kinda lame, but would probably be extremely addicting.

Call it MineMania or Mineralrunner

It would be based on the old SphereRunner game, for anyone that has played it. You are in a lander and you start on a giant grid, with mineral deposits all over the place. Then on all 4 sides of you, you have a Dreadnought in attack postion. I suppose they would have to be landed Dreadnoughts, or maybe they could shoot from space, whatever. But, anyways, you run around on this giant grid with your lander and collect the minerals by swooping over them. It will be based on the classic score system, but some minerals will be worth more than others. It would probably start with only one Dreadnought firing, then gradually work its way up to 4.Once you clear all the minerals on the grid, you start a new level. This time the Dreadnoughts are a bit faster at their firing rate and at their speed across the board, then you work up from there.

no, I mean I thought it was spelled tectonics, like plate tectonics?

Blue F.R.I.E.D., I like the look of a clean burning flame. Like the kind you get with energy efficient propane and propane accesories.

and dialogue not nearly as enjoyable as SC2...

hmm. I liked the dialogue in 3, the K'tang are probably the funniest race in the known universe.

I forgot one. Never go up against a Broodhome with a Molar.

It's all about warp position. I think I should have mentioned this before. If you're turned away from the Avatar at close range, you're dead. Most of the time,  I try to take a couple shots while moving in, rapid fire when I get close enough, then bounce away, while the Chmmr pursues me flying backwards at a fast pace, nailing him with shots the whole way. It's very tough to aim away from the laser, also very tough to not lose crew in this fight.

I think E.T. sorta looks like a Spathi-Eater, maybe you should get his pic.

The Arilou speed is kinda surprising, their pretty fast shooters.

Chmmr versus Orz is a fun fight, but even better against Chmmr oftentimes are the Broodhomes. You can't run away from the gravity-lock, but you sure can pack a good punch on the ship without worrying about the zap-sats

I think it's funny if you get all thrusters, but no weapons and fight Tanaka. You can ram him as much as you want, and it sends him flyin.
