All we need now are the Colonials, er, Hydrans.

The the only differences is the Neo-Tholians are Military Cast, and their ships are 300 years older...

Tholian Holdfast;

Actually, the Neos, aka the 312th Battle Fleet, is ~300 years *older* than the contemporary Tholians as they are the original Tholian fleet units and not the PC based units that could be built once the original refugees arrived in the Milky Way.

I remember when they were first teased, then released. Good times back then, but ADB has pretty much become a shell of itself since then.

Very true. The two main principals are both civil engineers and are despise the whole "e-book" concept because they think that people are going to pirate their stuff. Maybe, maybe not, but with the cost of duplex scanners and personal copiers, the issue is a moot point because if people want to do that, they'll do it with the printed materials, too.

I got back into SFB last year and quickly realized why I drifted away from it; every game seemed to be like the games before it - the ships might be different, but the annoyance of spending an hour or more per turn (if we were lucky!) just drove me up a wall. I realized that I wasn't excited to play the game anymore. I loved the backstory and "chrome", but the game itself is dying a slow death and it seems like ADB can't see it.

The products are, IMO, over priced for the size of the fanbase and popularity. I was at Historicon this past July and didn't see one game played or even offered in the gazette. Historicon is the premier miniatures convention and while its focus is historical, a good percentage of the games are fantasy, historical "what if" (SEALs vs. the Dark Gods Of Egypt and The Africa Corps vs. The Dark Gods Of Egypt, to name two), and sci-fi. I even sat in on a Full Thrust Lite game of Battlestar Galactica. The rules, by the way, sucked ass big time.

Finally, ADB has serious quality issues with their miniatures. Back in the day, the 1980s, the minis were of what I'd call "industry standard quality"; they weren't super detailed but they also weren't lumps of lead that were vaguely ship shaped. They were also symmetrical and the hulls were straight where they should be and curved where they should be. The new crop of miniatures are done by some guy who's a friend of one of the Steves and in a word, they suck. Back in the day we used to laugh about Minifigs and early Grenadier minis being vaguely man-shaped...compared to these minis they were Ral Partha's finest. Sad, so very sad.

Anyway, I hope someone buys them out and implements a top down quality improvement program and fast tracks the conversion of print to e-books.
