Another Great MMORPG...

...Bulfleet (a Russian concoqtion - can't remember what 'bul' means in Russian either) is more of a real-time stats game that somewhat satifies my "conquer the universe" behavior. Overall, it's pretty fun.

The Stargate MMORPG...

...I've been looking for a Stargate game for some time. I enjoy these stat games:
Stargate Wars
Quantum Gate Wars
Chaos Gate Wars

My screen name, of course, is The Terrible Swede.

They're fun, free and can consumme you if you let it.

Remember As A Kid You'd Play 'Operation'?

Well, now you can play doctor with Darth Vader. It's a game that will test your hand-eye coordination as well as the force in you. ;)



From the site:

Darth Vader is in need of repairs´┐Ż better operate quick! This classic Operation game is reborn with the addition of Darth Vader on the table! Dig deep into the Dark Lord of the Sith by removing his symbols of power: he's got Deflecting Palm, Ominous Breathing, Rebel Scum Detector, Deadly Duel, and many more! Don't set off the buzzer, or the Dark Lord of the Sith's eyes will light up and you will hear him scream in pain! "NNNOOOOOOOOOO!!"

I Have Discovered A New Forum...

...and it's pretty much all about Stargate with some other sci-fi shows (Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, etc.). I'm still a newbie there.

Stargate: F302 Fighter


Stargate: F302ship, originally uploaded by Terrible_Swede.

Finally, the fighter F-302 starship. It was built to rival the Ga'ould Death Gliders.

We so kick their ass with these. It actually was designed to jump hyperspace but was unstable.


 

Stargate: Daedalus

The second battle cruiser the "Tori" (earthlings) made that goes from our galaxy to the Pegasus galaxy where Stargate Atlantis is.

Stargate: Prometheus Protects

In the last season of Stargate SG-1, we follow Colonel O'neil and his team as they find the ultimate weapon against Ga'ould Anubis and his army.

This picture captures the battle cruiser BC-303 protecting the SG-1 team at all cost.

This is one of my favorite episodes.

STAR WARS: Children of the Jedi

...by Barbara Hambly was better than OK but not the best sci-fi I've read. It's fast and riveting. It's also my second Star Wars book that I've ever owned or read. Yeah, yeah: Star Wars virgin. STAR WARS: Tales of the Bounty Hunters is still my favorite but I expect that to change maybe not this year because school is gearing up again. I've really wanted to read more Star Wars and other sci-fi but my past as a charismatic non-denom Christian frowned on reading anything that wasn't Christian.

Any way, here's a good summary. Basically, the bad guys get away which leads to another story and book. Cool.

The Force...

...website is pretty cool. I found a listing of Darth Vader's injuries - stuff you don't get from the movies. Here's the header:

This page is be dedicated to analysis of the extent and cause of the injuries suffered by Lord Darth Vader. In Return of the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi states that Vader is "more machine now than man." This page will be concerned with investigating the extent Kenobi's statement might be literally true and the extent to which it is merely "a certain point of view."

Scratch that last post

This is a better "official" site for the Sith. According to the Gaelic tongue "sith" means fairy. I don't think any one told this to Lord Vader.

There are some purists out there: the movies only. Whatever! I think the Expanded Universe and the many authors of the great Star Wars saga enhance what George Lucas created.

Hehehe...

Sith happens.

 

I remember when I was little...

...a time when I climbed my first 14, 000 foot mountain when I was 5-years old - that's 1977. It was Mt. Elbert in Colorado. I thought I couldn't do it. I thought I was exhausted. My right shoe was starting to fall apart. My dad and/or uncle did a temp fix by strapping a belt around the sole of my shoe. I wanted to quit.

Then my dad said, "Tell you what, you make it up this mountain, I'll take you to Star Wars."

I bet my eyes must have got huge. I moved up to the top of that mountain as fast as my little legs could carry me and the trip down was a breeze when I thought about the reward. I didn't even give a second thought to my damaged shoe.

Yes, I saw Star Wars: A New Hope back in 1977 as a reward for conqueoring my first 14er I never knew I could do.

Now, I'm a big kid: at mid-night, I get to watch Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Wow.

(For some odd reason, I remember "Sour Cream & Onion Doritos" as well.)

What drove this gifted and powerful youth into becoming a force for evil?" Courtesy of me.

My favorites of this parody:

EPT 1138 and Padme - hehehe.

"You're pure dag, nasty evil." Kenobi to Anakin, "It's just a fact."

Master Yoda, "Now screwed, we all will be."

Master Yoda chugging a beer.

Welcome to the Dark Side of the Force!

This site is the Terrible Swede's appreciation of all the villians of George Lucas' Star Wars, the best epic ever in my life.
