And finally, as to the 12 year old:  Ask the thousands killed by Saddam what they did wrong.  Yeah, war sucks and people die.  But I'd rather have a thousand die today to remove Saddam than a hundred die each and every day living under Saddam.  (and, yes, those numbers are made up, but they prove my point.)


And what if it was you getting your hands blown off and your parents killed? It's easy to say, hahaa, Saddam is bad, they like it when we bomb their guts out, they understand we're their friends. Well, mister, why are the Iraqis more united against the coalition then in the gulf war?

Just think. We are again getting hundreds of orphans. Who are easy targets for terrorst organizations... "revenge"... I am afraid the war in Iraq does not end when Saddam is removed.

Germany invaded, captured, and proceeded to inflict genocide on Polish Jews.

America plans to invade, take out a dictatorship that pretty much everyone agrees is evil, and proceed to (try to, at least..) set up a new democratic government.

...how exactly can you spin it to make them the same?


Germany attacked in greed for oil and rubber.

USA attacked in greed for oil.

I started out with Starcontrol back when it was released. I played it with my 386/33 and was blasted away by its simple brilliance: the game was simple to play, yet challenging to master. It contained more strategic elements than most of the games in its time. Building mines, colonies and fortresses to defend them. Mines were needed to produce RU which needed for building new ships. Colonies provided crew for ships. I even today love playing SC1. SC1 is like "The Hobbit" from JRR Tolkien Wink

As off SC2, I can only say the same thing as off JRR Tolkiens "Lord of the Rings": It is the ultimate story. The One. Only complaint I have is in the beginning hyperspace traveling seemed endless Sad.


First off. I dont think Starcontrol 3 is a bad game. Actually, I enjoyed Starcontrol 3.

The only bad thing is, that it is not "Starcontrol" as I know it: The best game ever played. So, since people have been expecting SC3 to be better than SC2, it must have been disappointment. But when I played it, I mostly enjoyed it. I didnt care about some of the stupid plot changes, most games in the time had those. Heck, still have. Precursors turning into cows really made me laugh. But I DIDNT consider it as a good ending for the SC3-trilogy. SC3 is like "Silmarillion" from JRR Tolkien. The basics were given and someone else screwed it up. Still it is mostly enjoyable.

Excuse my bad english and typos, my work day is about its end and I cannot even think straight now Cheesy

I have two precursor artifacts that only make farting noises.


Hahaha! I am sorry, please dont get offended by my laughter... I just have to tell you, people at my work probably think I'm mad or something as I read your post and bursted into all laughter... farting noises, haha... Just imagine, all the "powerful" precursor artifacts just work as expensive fart bags. Cheesy

It means you cant use the artifact at the time. You just need to use them at the right time / place.
