    Wow. That's almost as dumb as a planet of Gangsters or being sent back to medieval England and forced to battle the Sheriff of Nottingham by Q or that time Captain Kirk flew to the centre of the galaxy and blew up God with a photon torpedo. I mean almost. :D Discovery has forced me to re-calibrate my sense of "What the heck?!", but I still reckon it's mostly within the Trek envelope on that score.

    Sticking to Asterope sounds good to me. But I'm not sure about Cobras. I've already left my Gunship there. I'll try it out first, and if I find I need the speed to run away from the swarm I can always buy a Cobra.

    Dumber than the time Wesley Crusher created sentient life as part of a science project?

    Whatever coffee substitute they were putting in the local recyc it wasn’t working. I leaned against a crate and tried to look nonchalant, just another tired dock worker on a smoke break his boss didn’t know about. Lazlo’s goons weren’t hired for their brains, they marched straight for the painite and started breaking open the container. I stepped from the shadows, laser pistol covering them both. “Change of plan boys,” I waved them to the corner and went to inspect the goods. A cold, hard pistol pushed into the small of my back “Sorry boss,” she whispered, “change of plan”

    You're very lucky. Even if I had the money, if I stuck a 55 incher in my pokey little cottage it would take up a whole wall. I guess it's one of the reasons why I prefer VR to a conventional monitor.

    I'd hoped waving a blaster in Sam's face would illicit more of a response. His reaction was reticence, not defiance. Maybe I could persuade him. "That dame did us both over good. She set you up as a patsy before she even picked your name out of the phonebook. She'll be hundreds of light years away by now with the plans clutched in those dainty little fingers of hers. Would you care to tell me where she's heading?" Sam casually looked down at the blaster. "Go pull the trigger. It wouldn't be the worst thing that happened to me today."

    The film appears to be doing well in the UK. I guess it is getting a lot of good word-of-mouth here. I'm sure that it will do great when it's released for the home. I went out with a girl with a bad back. I always felt sorry for her when I saw her shifting uncomfortably in her cinema seat. Home viewing is better for long movies. It's such a shame it's going to lose something displayed on the little flat rectangle in folk's homes.

    I know a lot of FDevs keep their eye on this thread, I know that Elite has nothing to do with Star Wars, and I know that Frontier might need to pay a lot of money to Disney for this, but could we please have Jar Jar Binks as a killable character?

    Huh. I remember being told about that by a security guard when I was at school in Middlesbrough about 18 years ago. I didn't believe him but I remember it being a really weird thing to have made up. What on Earth happened that day?

    A bit disappointed. I don't really have much interest in the PU. I know Chris Roberts has had some stick on this thread in the past about how cheesy his dialogue can be, but that's what he does. The reason I was following this thread was for SQ42. Elite is a game where you are a small cog in a big universe. I was looking for a space game where the storyline's that I'm some sort of a big hero, and that I alone can save humanity. I was looking for a different experience from one that I currently get from Elite. I'm going to keep an eye on this thread to see what their plans are eventually. It's fun to read just for the comedic aspect anyway

    WRT "The Last Jedi" No-one (here or elsewhere) seems to have noticed that Force Awakens specifically refers to Luke as "the last Jedi" in the opening crawl and in dialogue. As for what has been speculated in this thread, don't trust trailers or speculation click-bait videos on Youtube.

    Oh if they did that! I'd be switching from my Imperial SLF to the Condor. I'd be waving my shut-up-and-take-my-money credits at the shop assistant. <grin>

    Thanks for posting that Evocati leak. I like the sound of linking oxygen level to stamina. I hope they get the framerate sorted out. 15fps is more of a turn-based game.

    The Krait was a tiny wee ship with massive guns that was easy to chuck about, easy to swat if you could hit it, and didn't have a jump drive. The modern E: D equivalent of the old Krait is the Imperial Ship-Launched Fighter GU-97

    Are we still watching out for spoilers? I don't know if everyone who wants to see the movie has now seen it There's also the fact that Wallace states to Deckard, Deckard's own feelings about seeing Rachael for the first time. It seemed to be an echo of when Deckard related the hatching spider memory to Rachael. Of course there's a good chance that the Director's Cut version of the DVD will be edited in a way to suggest that Deckard is human <grin>

    There weren't many people who voted. It's a bit of a pyrrhic victory, but I'll take any win coming my way. Thanks to all of you who voted for me. As a tribute to BladeRunner 2049 in the cinema at the moment, my choice of Topic for the Week is.. ... Film Noir

    I'm glad you're getting the issues with your headset sorted out. The CV1 is only incrementally better than the DK2, but it is better. I can't remember ever regretting the money that I spent on the upgrade, but then my DK2 was starting to fall apart a little, and I didn't want to invest any time in sorting something that I wasn't sure would continue to be supported. The god rays are slightly off putting. I'm hoping that the next generation of headsets ditch the fresnel lenses. Although I'm happy with my headset, I'm sure that this one won't be the last one I buy. Holo-me in VR is fun. I did find altering the features on the big head in front of me a little disturbing <grin>

    I'm hoping something like this happens. I'm also hoping that the spore drive shunts them into a parallel universe which turns out to be the Prime Universe, with old-fashioned Klingons and primary coloured uniforms. :D
