IMDB tells that Dark Star is a John Carpenter sci-fi movie made in 1974 Tongue

Only Finns can fully understand the names of my ship and captain in my most recent UQM session.

The Ship: AIV-liuos
The Captain: Sikanauta

What do those basically mean? Well, AIV-liuos is a Finnish invention that helps people to keep the fodder for their cattle fresh Smiley Sikanauta is a what English people would call a certain type of meat that has both pork and cow in it Tongue

You may guess, that I don't think about the names in UQM that much. Instead, it is fun to give names like that.

I always forget to name the ship&capt

Dark Star was a student(?) movie written by Dan O'Bannon or something, the same guy who later made the synopsis for Alien.

edit: I always take extra care of my Syreen ship when Ripley pilots it.

Captain Crunch of the A.S.S Whipper, at your service.


"I always take extra care of my Syreen ship when Ripley pilots it."

Especially useful when there's an orz loose onboard your penetrator, killing off the crew one by one. Of course, they're in pressure suits, so the airlock thing won't be to useful.

Not so difficult to picture, as he has no facial expression.

Of course, when dealing in matters of life and death, one must have the poker face of a prosimian.

Dark Star! Loved that movie. Smiley

As to myself... i'm generally uncreative. Captain Halleck of the Starship Razor was my last known preference, although I started a new game with the starship Corsair recently.

Oh and jack cloudy: no need to start over!
Just go into Game>Settings>Captain and Game>Settings>Flagship to change them.
