Phoenix will relaunch about same time or shortly after Pegasus.

Darrell: I have to work the sytax of that sentence out better: you have images from the trailer, correct? That's what that terribly complex sentence was trying to say....and failed to!
My nagging worries on this list:
Battlestar Callisto (relaunching???, site is currently suspended)
Orange Squadron appears to be defunct.
Rag Tag Fleet http://www.geocities.com/Rag_Tag_Fleet/ Should I feature them: they still list DeSanto/Singer as the latest news and it was early 2002, I know I found that confusing. They have a nice 2nd coming article though. :/

That's really too bad. Battlestar Callisto has been both a devoted fan club and fan web site with vibrant, enthusiastic members over the years. I hope Rick, Al, Tony, Paula and others haven't entirely walked away from it. With the felgercarb over the past productions, particularly the most recent one, it wouldn't surprise me if they said, "Enough is enough for now."

BC was one of the last sites I offered to completely overhaul and beef up last year (when I was doing such things).

I hope they do return. :colwar:

Hi, all. I remember a *Long Time Ago* there was a site in the UK where several individuals had created a Star Fleet Battles-style Battlestar Galactica ship-to-ship combat game. They had a listing of 'Early' and 'Modern' warships for both the Colonials & Cylons showing their gaming stats, and had some nice SSDs (Generic Battlestar with Variant Warship Mounts, such as Anti-Base Ship Missiles aboard Pegasus; Colonial Pulsar-class Gunstar; Colonial Protector-class Cruiser; Colonial Destroyer [Tiger-class??]; and Colonial Patrol Boats, etc.). They had Quickstart guidelines, Basic Rules, and other various rules sections. Has anybody ever saved this old game resource to disk (because the UK site address has gone dark for a long time now) ?? The name 'Sean Driscoll' comes to mind as one of the key major authors of this system, but I don't know if he's become a member here or if anyone knows him from here, but I was hoping to try looking up this game. Please send suggestions or options, thanks!

:duck: I have to hide. I'm knee deep in an online course that's considered a lecture with lab (ie: do not expect to have a life if you take this class).

If one of the folks whose been looking at the links can tell me which ones they've tried that went no where (like geocities died a death many moons ago), that would conserve a little energy.
