Back in the '80s and early '90s there was this series of PC games I loved to death called the Star Fleet series.
Starting in 1984 with Star Fleet I: The War Begins!, these games took the classic "Star Trek" computer game whose heritage ran back to mainframe days and ramped it up to 11, adding tons of extra detail, strategy and game mechanics. They were insanely ambitious games for their time.
Which is why it's so exciting to see the original developer, Dr. Trevor Sorensen, pop up on GOG today announcing that he's bringing updated, bug-fixed, ready-to-run-on-modern-Windows versions of the Star Fleet games to GOG and, eventually, Steam.
The first release in that series will be a GOG release of Star Fleet 2, which never really found an audience on its original 1989 release because Sorensen's publisher, EA, insisted on pushing it out unfinished to get it on store shelves in time for Christmas. (Some things never change.)
Sorensen says the GOG release will include fixes for all those bugs that plagued version 1.0, along with some extra features for good measure. We'll know how successful he was when it actually drops, but it's exciting to see him even make the effort.

The supermarket I go to plays popular music over their speaker. Today it was “Help Is On Its Way” by Little River Band. I make it a rule that when that song reaches those three beats of tacet (Haaang on!—), I freeze, and resume when the music does (—Help is on its way).
I don’t care if anyone saw me. I have standards.
