Captain Hunt 2021.02.18



So Facebook has now banned the actor who played Captain Hunt in Andromeda...

When I watched all of Andromeda right-the-way-thru at University, I realised that, despite the show itself being crazy, the answer to "Which starship captain's better; Kirk or Picard?" was actually "Hunt", because he combined all the qualities of both.

On the one hand, Hunt was the inspirational leader and swashbuckling, womanising starship captain.
On the other, he was the disciplined military strategist, diplomat and idealist.

At the same time, he could also be very sarcastic and flippant; almost to the point of being arrogant, which oddly made him even more likeable.

Nobody could've been cast better in the role.

Star Fleet Saturday 2-16 2021.02.05

I did not have to look far for this week's Star Fleet Saturday.
Brad has been very busy reworking his X-Bomber 3D model and started work on the Dai-X as well.

Take a closer look on the SFXB Forum

Combined Update 2021.01.31



Migration Away from Facebook
I've been busy migrating all the content that I put on facebook onto the website.
This has taken me about a fortnight but the process is now finished.

The website's hosting has also just been renewed for another 3 years (and 6 months for free).

Doctoku's AI Upscaling Project
On the SFXB Forum, user Doctoku has created a 720p AI-upscaled version of the first episode of the original X Bomber Japanese version of Star Fleet:

SFXB Forum Issues
At the same time, I learned that newly-registered users on the SFXB Forum were having problems accessing the forum.
This problem in the forum's database has been fixed with a bit of SQL trickery, but it means that we had trouble with spam users who registered over the past months who were then able to disrupt the forum with spam messages as well.

I've pruned all spam users from the forum, along with any of their messages.
I've also tightened up the registration requirements and added a number of spam mail domains to the blocklist.

Lastly, after a recent upgrade, there were problems with the 'breadcrumb' navigation. That's now been fixed.

Fan Artwork
I added a much cleaner and better version of Japanese artist Shiina's Star Fleet illustration to the Fan Artworks section of the site.

The other week, I found this nicely-styled illustration by Ryuhi Misaki on twitter.

Star Fleet Saturday 2-14 2021.01.09



I found this yesterday.  It's an article scanned by twitter user; bomberxf01, which the person claimed was part of an initiative to make a movie of the show, after the series ended.
The write-up didn't mention a date when the article was published, but I don't see how they could have produced a movie, with all the props, sets and puppets having been destroyed by fire ... unless they planned on re-creating them.

Sketchbook - USS Lin Wood 2021.01.09



The situation with the unknown enemy is growing serious and the NX-191052 has arrived to reinforce NX-140646 at Starbase 17.

The Lin Wood is essentially four engineering-style hulls, containing a total of four conventional warp cores and four 'Best of Both Worlds'-style deflector cannons.
These four main weapons are capable of simultaneous fire, or a continuous, sequential rapid-fire cycle, where at least one cannon is firing at any given time, which can be sustained for at least several hours of continuous output.

The 8 phaser strips are intended for point defence and the 18 photon torpedo launchers are there for no real reason, just in case; the intention being that the vessel would normally be escorted by an entire battle group.

Since the ship contains no holodecks, large cargo bays, cetacean ops or petting zoos, the ship can maintain a surprising maximum warp for extended periods, the exact value of which is highly classified.

Star Fleet Saturday 2-13 2021.01.02

Star Fleet Saturday has a habit now of occurring on the Saturday... I already had a photo of this painting of Dai-X from prolific comic book artist; Lee Bradley on xbomber.co.uk. #leebradley Well, the original came up on eBay before Christmas, and now I have it, thanks to Dominique, and now the website has a better scan of it ...

Star Fleet Saturday 2-12 2020.12.25

I was reminded by a post on one of the Star Fleet groups that I had collected quite a few Star Fleet images from Japanese artist; U1timate, which he often likes to do around Christmas time.

Merry Christmas and here's to another year of Star Fleet Saturdays!
