I read that in Darth Vader's voice.

Well with the Reapers on the way, it's better than nothing.

Man, you blow up one star and suddenly people think you can do everything!

FTA: "two white dwarfs might collide like vast hypermassive billiard balls leading to a cataclysmic blast."

Giggity.

"You blow up one star and everyone thinks you can walk on water." Watched the episode last night!

Also "Explode a supernova"? A supernova is an explosion. That doesn't make any sense. Or did they mean "blow up a star"?

Well, it didn't blow up James Spader's career...

I just wish that Bridge Commander didn't have that nasty memory leak.

Kingrarr: I just wish that Bridge Commander didn't have that nasty memory leak.


To be fair, most thing coded at that time had memory leaks. It was more of the size of it and with all that awesome gameplay going on filling a few gigs up in the blink of an eye is no problem.
