Thanks to my David and Linda for getting me the Emmette!
It completes my line-up of the OV-165 spaceplane and the two 'warp delta' ships.
Having a wild time with Operation Matriarchy,
I have wanted to play this game for â€¦ *years*.
This is the last game ever produced by the Russian studio MADIA, in 2005.
I don't know how Danielle and Dave got a sealed, boxed copy after all this time but â€¦ there we go.
I got it ticking under Windows 10 and it is running great now.
The gameplay is really smooth, the visuals and physics are fantastic for its age. The music and weapons are really excellent too.
Here's another view of the tactical Miranda.
I found the two outlines drawn on either side of a single page, for this little Miranda class battlewagon.
Now, if you wanna use markers to vamp up the outlines, then you're gonna destroy whatever's on the opposite side.
One answer to that, was to scan them on the V750 (which totally ignores even heavy lines on the other side of the page), print them in borderless 'photo quality' from photoshop. (The printer didn't do that great a job of matching the colours).
After that, you have the two outlines separated out, and you can faff on with them to the extent that you want, before scanning them *again* and 'doing the needful' in photoshop.
Idea is: It's a ship wrecked and recovered from Wolf 359.
During its rebuild, it gets piled high with TNG-era firepower.
There are ... FOUR ... DISCS!
An abandoned alien facility that gets re-appropriated and put to a useful purpose.
Star Fleet Saturday is a bit later than normal this week ...
This illustration is from a chap on deviantArt called bordon.
It's interesting how, nearly 40 years on, Star Fleet is still informing peoples' designs for characters and other things.
Gonna need a bigger boat? Here it is â€¦ :D
- Idea here was to have a 'floating fortress' big brother to Stingray that can defend underwater habitats and cities indefinitely (or demolish one).
