Even after they took their main cannons out, it was still able to put a fight. That alone earned its place in my heart.

Worth checking out. It's a fairly straightforward RTS, combat is a balance between outright damage and targeting subsystems. The enemy Ai is either incredibly dumb or 4 parallel universes ahead of you depending on the minute. For a 2004 game it's very pretty, lots of attention to detail in the presentation - Ships show use of reverse and maneuver thrusters firing, craft are to scale, some really nice effects.


The earlier missions where ships don't have shields and weren't armed to the teeth were the best parts of the game imo.

From the 1980 film, Toward the Terra. (地球へ) Here are spaceships used by the Psionic "Mu" refugees and by the technic computer controlled society trying to exterminate them. I like how the Mu ships look like they were grown organically. To me, they look like seashells.

It's still kinda insane to me that the only reason we got such an iconic design was because some pom spoke up and said: "Oi mate! 'At design roight 'ere look's a 'lil bit like 'at one ship frum 'at one space show or sumthin'! You wankers wouldn't 'appen 'ta be plagiarisers would ya?'. Funny part was both were cribbing from 2001's playbook but Lucas and co. were smart enough in another direction.

1)) The Enterprise from Star Trek was the first dispersed-structure spaceship design I ever saw. Different pieces, held together by struts or girders or pylons or something. When first I saw it, I tried to reason why anyone would weaken the structural integrity of the ship. I figured the nacelles must put out some fierce radiation and by positioning them outside the main hull, shielding the crew from that radiation would be easier. The disadvantages of the dispersed architecture would be that ship could never enter too deeply into the atmosphere or gravity well of a planet.
>>
2)) But there is no denying that the Enterprises dispersed architecture was truly original. Before the Enterprise, all the spaceships I’d seen were shaped like flying saucers or V-2 missiles. Or cigars or bowling balls.

3)) My favorite “retro” space fleet was the Imperial Atomic Space Navy from Spaced Invaders.
