Re: Science Fiction Trivia

It was the first one I thought of. Likewise! The second one that came to mind has had me scratching my head for years, as I can't recall the title, the author, the plot, or the characters - nothing, except the huge trains which were the only way to traverse the portals between worlds. Any ideas, an...

You can always disable it by selecting "Docking Clearance Protocol: Off" in your menu.

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Welcome aboard, Commander! Combat is slightly tougher as the AI is much improved. Pick your fights, learn when to run.
Sometimes, there are queues, but not always. Are you using the docking computer, or doing it the proper way - manually?

Unfortunately I didn't find out how to "hide" the link in Word here
Hover over the Insert URL button (the tenth button) and follow the second example.
