Well, we all know that the Zuul love to send huge swarms of ships to plaster their opponents. So, I thought I'd return the favor.

Someone remind me why this is an ugly, dated graphics game? :roll:

Those are in fact cutting beams, fired by one of my Shadow Battlecruisers (Adv Cloak/Blazer/AM Flickerwarp) and by Poseidon (my flagship) in the upper pictures. They are among my favorite weapons, and feature prominently in most of the pics I post.

Such as this one, where I am now working over the Tarkas, having disposed of the Zuul :twisted:

Edit: Oh and Mecron, whoever said this game has crap graphics should be flogged. It looks great and is processor friendly enough that I can play it on my laptop while on a trip (which is why there's a sudden proliferation of pics from me on here :thumbsup: )

I had recently meet the most heavily armed Alien Derelict I've ever seen (and that after quite some games :D I love it when this brilliant game surprises me once again after I thought I've seen everything :thumbsup: ), though I often autoresolve unknown menaces often so maybe I've already had such an derelict, but I surely haven't seen it.
And I decided to make a few screens of it and to post them here (eventhough many of you(probably most :) ) might already know this version of the derelicts):

It has photon torps, phasers, phaser PD, gauss cannons, emmiters and a meson beam
My scout even survived the encounter and made some damage (arount 1000) :)

For whatever reason, I never see the Peacekeeper in my games now. I don't know why. :cry: I want to kill it again.
