Wow ... four at once!!

Normally I'd jump at the chance, but I'm tied up with the Klingon Civil War right now.

Once that one ends, I may see if I can drum up enough interest in an "Alpha Quadrant" based game.

I've got that on my short list for when your other one ends. :)

][avok,

While on the subject, I recently checked the Download area and noticed that the Alpha Quadrant stuff wasn't available.

Now I honestly don't remember if you ever had it up on the Downloads page or not.

Did you need me to resend the files to you?

I've got it... I set it a side when you tried to corner the entire SDC contest :lol: and meant to put it on the scenario's page. I just forgot about it until it all got brought again.

I'll get that up there soon.

Yeah, well ... when I get in the scenario buildin' mode I get a little "focused". My wife calls pronounces it "obsession".

If anyone is interested, the beta test for Alpha Quadrant went real well. The Ferengi (10) player won (high score at a given turn) but was closely followed by the Cardassian (9), then the Borg (6), and finally by the Maquis player (11) who finally figured out what he could with carriers ;)

The scenario is called Star Trek: Alpha Quadrant. It's now posted on the site in the scenarios download area.

Yeah ... the Alpha Quadrant mod is more specifically replacement data for race name and ship stats - with replacement graphics for both DOS and Windows VGAP.

What I did was rework the races and ships to those seen prominently in Star Trek:TNG and Star Trek:DS9. The eleven races are now (in order); Federation, Gorn, Romulan, Klingon, Orion, Borg, Tholian, Dominion, Cardassian, Ferengi, and Maquis.

Each race has a full complement of race-specific ships - and the ship classes you see most prominently from those shows are in there. Here's a list of some of the more prominent ones"

Fed - Galaxy, Nebula
Rom - D'Deridex, Valdore
Klingon - Vor'cha, Neq'Var
Borg - Cube, Diamond, Sphere
Dominion - Attack Ship, Warship
Cardassian - Galor, Keldon
Ferengi - D'Kora

The beta test was a real blast to host - and while I didn't play one of the races, I did get a chance to fill in while several players needed to take breaks. [/list]
