Hey all.. Me too. I haven't played for years (was Jonny the Rom). I  just decided to pick it up again. I was hoping to play on-line... Is there still anyone doing that?

Anyway, it's fun to play - and I am rusty as hell. Starting with OP (that was my favorite version). I hope to see old "friends" here if any are still around.

Picking up SFC after years of not playing.  Thank you very much for your hard work in improving the models in SFC v1.

Any plans to continue and improve the rest of the Romulan ships?  They are my favorite race to play.

Thanks again!

as soon as I am able i'll upload.  I just need to find a reliable site.  also many are missing the original read me files and a tremendous amount have been, for lack of a better term, plagiarized.

the sites that I was able to pull them from were just crap when it came to verifying authenticity.  luckily they're all dead sites now.

if you have a certain model that you're looking for, let me know and i'll keep an eye out for it.

Engineering / Re: Space Shuttle Question
« Last post by JarvisArgelius on November 17, 2018, 08:25:39 pm »
A replacement for the heat shield system, I don't know of.  However there was a planned, and mostly completed, replacement for the entire Space Shuttle, called the X-33/Venture Star.

I've done a fair amount of reading on the after-incident reports of both Challenger and Columbia.  And as far as Columbia goes, in my opinion, I believe that the hardware takes far too much blame where the personnel (human negligence, not human error)  should.  Long story short, the risks to the thermal shielding were well known for years and many missions before Columbia.  I believe that people were more concerned about keeping their jobs, rather than taking precautions that would have slowed the program even more, or shut it down potentially.   And then there are the contractor production and payload revenue influences.

Regardless of what I say, the professional review board for the Columbia destruction put most of the blame on NASA's risk management and flawed operational "order of battle" (my paraphrase, not theirs). 

The damage was known long before re-entry.  No one knows if the crew could have been saved, but it is known that we didn't try.  We had the ISS in orbit as a potential safe haven.  We had the Russians to bring them back from the ISS if we could not get another shuttle ready in time.  As galling as it may have been to ask for help, it's preferable to crew death.  I think if we had shown the resolve that we did with the Apollo 13 accident,  that we could have saved lives.  Some egos and maybe some careers would have been bruised (which ended up getting bruised anyway), but that shuttle crew may have survived.  Not even an attempt was made.

Starfleet Command Models / Update 1, day 3.

today I got two teeth pulled.

but I got some really good pain meds and a whole bottle of scotch.

I got over 300 models done only because I didn't pass out due to blood loss or the pain and that they were mostly copies of copies.
