1999! The year the Moon blasted off into space!

Eh, less than a 25% error...
... of course, if d4v1ks makes that much error, its unacceptable!  ;)

SFC 1 was released in 1999. I even have a pre-release demo that was not as slick as the finished product, but playable.

I got my SFC1 demo in 1999 from a Computer Gaming magazine. Back then, it was like nothing else on PC. I remember playing the Repair Rondevous  skirmish repeatedly for fun for hours until SFC1 came out. I remember when SFC: OP came and I was disappointed that the old skirmish missions were never carried over.

I updated the demo models with the correct CLH, CA and D7, in my version.

No big deal to recreate the demo scenario in SFC 1 / SFC 2 / SFC OP using FMSE.

The Klingons have many ways to fry a cat. I prefer to use an L7 Fast Battlecruiser!!

The scenario is from Star Fleet Battles Volume III, which I have, so I can create it using FMSE. I've been gradually converting SFB scenarios into SFC ones for a number of years now.

It's the translation of the initial Hex grid map start positions in SFC square grid map system that's tricky.

Floating maps are also a big issue.....
