I knew this was going to fail after the "friends and family" alpha shut down not even a month into it. I don't tend to expect much from early alphas, but this was absolute shite. That was a few years back, if recollection serves correct. One of our guildies did a short stint on the development team. Think he stayed with them for about 6 months before he jumped ship.
Good IP left in the hands of fools who had obviously never seen the series or even remotely had passion for sci-fi.
