How the Galileo Broke New Ground
Posted: September 2000
Once again the Galileo breaks new ground...and this time it is not the cafeteria's floor. Yes, the most state of the art ship...Galileo is yet again the front runner in the technology battle.
Galileo the first ship to have an ethernet network has been improved. Yes it still is a
box, but I am talking about technology. The Galileo was the first ship to have a computer with a 400+ mhz processor. The Galileo was the first to have laptops. Galileo was the first to have all computers capable of DVD. And Galileo has done it again. Galileo...the first ship to have a DVD player. Yes, the laserdisc player that we (actually only Kyle) loved has a nice LCARS picture from Star Trek First Contact has replaced the old circle. One more thing is that the sound for the Galileo has been redone. No longer does the Galileo rely on the
camera for it's sound in the control room....no.....it now has a new microphone so that the sound will be sent back in a much more pleasing fashion. You all know how cramped the Galileo's control room was....well not any more. The Galileo's control room has been
rearranged and is now more organized and more more visually appealing than even the Odyssey's.
Just for the record:
400+ mhz computers
100 disc CD changer
All music is CD..not a tape in site!
I am sure there is more, but if this amount of gloating does not stir up controversy who knows what will.

Post from the Past: New Volunteers Builds Simulator in Bedroom Closet. Posted: September 14, 2000
As some of you may know I run my own simulator out of my bedroom closet.
Today my mother made a great announcement! A room in our house will soon be designated as the "computer lab" and she said I can run my Simulator in there. I now have an entire room to use as a simulator!!!!
I NEED YOUR HELP!In honor of this new expansion I would like to create a new ship.
The name right now is the U.S.S Gondor. Please do one of 3 things:
1. Give me a suggestion for a new name
2. Tell me to stick with the name now
3. Tell me to stop torturing children in my neighborhood by making them come to my simulator.
P.S. If any one would like to donate an appletalk connector it would be greatly appreciated.

Long Live the "STEVE MAN!"
