SirCrow,

Knew you I did. Say that you would. Yes. :D

It is OK to like Star Trek and Star Wars!
(And I guess it's OK to like neither.)
I may not always finish what I've started....

Ok. Now you have dared to venture where few will choose to go...

When it comes to Star Trek, and the other franchise that will not be named, I use the words of the great and all powerful, Mr. Spock, "Captain. You must learn to govern your emotions. They will be your undoing."
Logic is the beginning of wisdom.

Fascinating.  In any case, you'll have to remain ignorant of  the many scientifically inaccurate aspects if my little game here.  For one thing, if those are nebular clouds, with all those stars, possibly even farther away, why would any of that appear to move whilst the little spaceship in the foreground chases the space rocks around?  Best advice: Shut up and enjoy the game!  Am I right?  :D
By the way, don't forget to use Ctrl-J and Ctrl-T to turn OFF the vanishing and/or turning of the Objects, if it bothers you.  It'll be saved in the .ini file.

Most SciFi type games are rife with inaccuracies. But, that's ok, after all they are just games. Let's take Asteroids, for example, and compare it with reality. Most would have you think that most asteroids belts are like the one that the Millennium Falcon flies through.... Our own asteroid belt contains millions of asteroids, yet they are so far apart, chances are if you could see one you would probably never be able to see another...

Inaccuracies or not the game is still fun! Code on!

Yeah, I was gonna say exactly all the same stuff you just said!  No need now.  Instead, check out the latest version of StarBlast:
