    @bowlisimo Actually, you’d be surprised! I reckon it stands up remarkably well. One of my favourite forgotten gems. In addendum, the Hammerhead and ISSAPC are two of my most cherished sci-fi ship designs. I do wish we had more military sci-fi dramas…BSG doesn’t really count for me…Space: Above & Beyond remains the only real show of its kind. A straight-laced Heinlein-lite for fans of the hostile space concept. Also, Chigs. I mean, as far as sci-fi enemies in TV shows go, they’ve never been topped!

    EDIT: Oh, and I took Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword online last night, having never done so with the franchise…and damn, it’s totally awesome! Utterly chaotic, but there’s something to be said for pole-arming a Hussar from his mount as he tries to lance me at full gallop. It’s come a long way with the new patches, too. Might be a chance to jump in if you need a break from the Indian Wars.

    @unmanneddrone You’re the first person I’ve seen mention that show since it actually aired. It must be spectacularly generic and very “90’s” looking back on it now, but I thought it was as cool as hell back then. I still hum the main theme every once in a while, and use it for “Here comes the capital fleet” music in Sins of a Solar Empire. R.I.P. Shirley Walker.

    Edit: Great, and now you’ve got me watching the pilot on youtube.
