    @MistaMaddog -  It's a decent on-rails shooter for what it is but has very little connection to the original. I like the art style and the static scenes used to deepen the lore.  In terms of gameplay, it owes a lot to Panzer Dragoon and also put me in mind of Elemental Gearbolt for some reason.  It's definitely a fun pick-up & play experience and worth a look.  Just don't expect it to feel like HSW's Yars'.  For that, the Recharged series version is a better choice.

    How does the game play overall?  I'm still wary of playing those "early" Atari remakes compared to the current stuff...

    DegasElite reacted to Sabertooth in I had election day off so I spent some time in PC-MODE via Steam. System Shock remake   
    I have 32GB that I haven't installed yet in my Onyx. May do that to see if System Shock can run in higher settings with the added memory.
    I also wonder if Windows performance on the stock 8GB VCS would work better from the M2 instead of a USB stick.
    I've never bothered with reFind because I spend 95% of my time in AtariOS.

    It depends on if the cube is open to space or if it sustains atmosphere. Do Borg need to breathe oxygen? Do Borg cubes have life support in that sense? Are they open to space? If the cube is open to space then there's no air to stink up and make smelly 🙃 I would assume the entire cube is not open to space as away teams have beamed over to cubes without too much of a problem. Now it occurs to me I need to create a Borg emoji 🦾

    DegasElite reacted to Justin in 🖖 In my head canon Tom Paris and Nicholas Locarno are one and the same.   
    @DegasElite It was initially supposed to be the same character, similar to how Major Kira was originally conceived as Ensign Ro Laren. In "The First Duty" Locarno was of course expelled from Starfleet Academy for the incident with Red Squadron, and similarly Tom Paris was serving time in the Federation Penal Settlement in New Zealand at the beginning of Voyager. You can find reasons for this given over the years, but it's pretty clear that they wanted to avoid having to credit and pay writers Ronald D. Moore and Naren Shankar - who had written "The First Duty" and created Tom Paris - for every episode of Voyager that Locarno/Paris appeared in. Jeri Taylor will say that Locarno was "irredeemable", yet another Red Squadron character Sito Jaxa was redeemable in the TNG episode "Lower Decks". In my view this has more to do with Hollywood baloney than with anything to do with canonical Star Trek 🖖
