    Got it, odf says 160 for the Strider.

    Always thought it was more TMP than ENT though.

    I do too, which is why I was looking for the length for adding it to the comparison chart

    In case you haven't heard, games for the original Xbox, such as KotOR, are being added to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility feature.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else frustrated with how the Novelverse is continually taking these big, wonderous things from the TV series, whose appeal was the fact that it was awe-inspiring in power or scope, and turning them downright pedestrian?

    I'm not into the Novelverse, but STO does the same thing and it irritates me.

    For the dog owners out there - has anyone ever tried a shock absorber on a lead? My mums dog has this annoying habit of going off like its been shot from a cannon if it sees a cat or squirrel and while small its part staffie so has a lot of power behind it.

    Today I bought Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on Xbox One. Plays very well. Shame they couldn't remaster it first.

    Not a genuine remaster, but the second game got an official update just a couple years ago for PC, but nobody has been able to convince that team to do the same for the first game. Which is especially frustrating because the update included stability fixes and KotOR and Morrowind are the only games I have that got less stable when going to Win10.

    LOL, I wish so very hard that they would remake the origjnal KotOR, my favorite RPG of all time. Not just a remaster, give me a brand new FF7-like remake, using every bit of advantage in new tech available in current generation. You can leave gameplay the same but update the visuals beyond just a higher texture resolution. I know it's completely unnecessary, I'm just dreaming.

    In fact, scrap Anthem and give me the above, I'll gladly pay full price.

    If they want to update the combat, though, Dragon Age's is a solid platform that Bioware actually owns and would be a good fit instead of licensing the Star Wars D20 system again.

    For anyone on the UK, drop what you are doing right now! Go make a cuppa tea and set your TV to Freeview channel 11 because at 7pm the greatest sci fi series ever made is back on the TV for the first time in many, many years. Yes I'm talking about Babylon 5, starting with the 2hr pilot The Gathering. It is then on every night at 8pm.

    Global Defense Initiative. It's a faction in Command & Conquer. They are (or started as) a multi-national military force under the command of the UN Security Council. They're effectively the military branch of the UN. What the European Union is doing sounded similar, but with the EU rather than the UN.

    In the second C&C game, GDI actually became the de facto government in some regions due to gradual societal collapse as a result of aggressive xenoforming. By the third game, all traditional governments have fully collapsed leaving GDI and the Brotherhood of Nod as the only governmental organizations left that expand beyond more than a couple villages. I don't expect any of this paragraph to happen with the EU.

    Looking back on it, did anyone else find it frustrating that in the episode of TNG with Amanda Rogers (the human woman who discovered she was a Q) that Riker's experience of being given Q abilities wasn't incorporated into the episode more?

    I feel like it's a situation where the episode should have been about one or the other rather than both. There just wasn't enough time to do both plots justice.

    Started re-watching Voyager. How is it that there are species that invented warp drives and artificial gravity but never managed to figure out how to mix oxygen and hydrogen to make water?

    Yes, and Neelix implies it's a problem for everyone in the region rather than just him and the Kazon. Though now that I think about it, Neelix is a liar...

    I doubt the writers thought out that part of the plot. They could theoretically say it was due to the Kazon having only a rudimentary understanding of science and how to use the Trabe ships they stole, but whatever.
