Ultimate Nerdocity (Artemis Starship Bridge Simulator)
Some of you may have seen articles fly around the net a few months back, about a Google engineer who built his house with LAN parties in mind. Exhibit A

As it happens, this Google engineer is a friend of mine (and several current & former Cryptic employees), and we've been to his house for a fair number of LAN parties since he completed the house last year.

The latest LAN party announcement went out this week, with a bit of a twist. This time, my friend has come across something called "Artemis Starship Bridge Simulator" Exhibit B

The house is set up with 6 computers in two rooms, so it seems like it's the perfect set up for this game. Or this game is the perfect game for this house, or something.

Have any of you messed with this before? I had never heard of it before the party announcement, but am looking forward to trying it out. Anyone have any advice? Previous experiences? Anything to give me leg up on the other room!

There were several threads about this on here before. The last one was made 2 weeks ago.

There are also at least two Star Trek mods for the game.

There's one set in tho TOS timeline, created by, well, me and another STOer, actually.

And there's a TMP-based mod. It's pretty sweet too.

It's an awesome game, very VERY fun, and the creator is a really cool guy. Everyone should buy a copy to help keep him pumping out the updates.

Now something like this would be a worthy expansion. STO: Command and Control. Talk about Team work for an MMO.

A Star Trek conversion for that would be totally awesome. Real life "Bridge Commander" experience.

Doesn't matter that the graphics look a bit dated, all the youtube videos I've seen of it are totally fun.

Wow, 1st I heard of this.
This is basically how I thought Trek Online would turn out when Perpetual still "had the helm".

Watch This!
Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator

Artemis Commercial

Artemis is a multiplayer, multi-computer networked game for Windows computers. Being designed by an indie developer.

Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. One computer runs the simulation and the "main screen", while the others serve as workstations for the normal jobs a bridge officer might do, like Helm, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control.

Artemis is a social game where several players are together in one room ("bridge") , and while they all work together, one player plays the Captain, a person who sits in the middle, doesn't have a workstation, and tells everyone what to do.

Err should you really be advertising for the game in an STO forum thing to talk about it and suggest one to give it a try, but this seems more along the lines of "Hey everyone, download this" :o

WOW! The commercial looks like crap, epic fail on the stellar level graphics alone just for a short cinematic could/should have been better for a teaser trailer all it did was to make me not want to never revisit the website and thread Fail fail fail people donít even bother past this point. :confused::eek:
