I asked - it's not the Ur-Quan.

I love the picture! It's so much fun to see their creativity and imagination getting brought out by the wondrous world of Star Control! Awesome! :D

There's bound to be some disagreements about where to go and what to do from time to time, especially since the game is so open-ended and each of them may have their own personal preference. Do you let them figure it out for themselves or do you step in and give your own opinion? Does anybody have the final word?

We wait for consensus. There was a several minute argument over whether to insult Tanaka, which I stayed out of aside from steering them back to the question and reminding them of the options when they were suggesting possible dialog that wasn't available.

The 7-year-old loves getting minerals, but that hasn't really caused any disagreements yet. While digging snow this morning, though, he said he was gathering minerals. He keeps asking if various things are minerals (salt, water, sugar).

We bought the cannon and lander-speed techs, and headed to the Spathi homeworld. Cleaned the joint out, made the alliance. They got it to stick. Heard about that funny vanishing star. Headed on to ZFP. Noticed we were low on fuel. Had to dodge a 'quan of some sort to get to them. Made alliance. Played Frungy. Headed home, got stuck, refueled, bought PDL tech.

Made it home, bought 2 eluders, upgraded gun to cannon, bought a third fuel tank, filled up. Not sure where to go next. Will think about it.

Layout tweak - we sold one of the cruisers and made a fourth fuel tank.

Upon reviewing the backstory, they wanted to visit Vela. So we did, and now we know where the Ur-Quan sphere is. Incidentally, the Raynet planets are JUNK.

Then they decided to head over to VUX territory. Scared of the Androsynth, so avoiding that until we have a decent counter. Saw a few sensor contacts as we entered the historic extent of VUX space, but they were out of the way. We just entered Alpha Cerenkov when time ran out for the session. No particular discoveries yet.

I love this. Kids are awesome! :D It's cool that you can experience a million "firsts" through their eyes. Makes me want to have kids of my own some day. :)
