I have been mystified for years why no one has done a nice reboot of Starflight--what a great discovery, exploration, alien-mystery-to-unravel game it was in its day--it even featured hostile aliens! You chased the mystery across galaxies, through wormholes, hunting for clues in ancient ruins, etc. Starflight had it all, and was far more than merely a trading/fighting game. You sought out and discovered colony planets--a big source of income in the game. The trading and the fighting served as the background for the main story--which was just how it should have been, imo. People were smarter in those days, too (only half-joking about that...;))--which maybe explains why it's never been rebooted.
If I was younger and wanted to pull a crew together to do a game it would be that one! EA screwed up with the Mass Effect games--the first one had the potential do be a Starflight reboot--but those games are far too cheesy and don't come close to the possibilities! Hope this happens! Can you imagine the cool scanning and topographical maps that could be generated from orbit today? The possibilities are limitless. Just so long as it's not some cheesy rip off made for pre-teens with no brains...;) Puh-leaze...!
It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)
