  Ah, that makes sense. But the quality was still nothing comparable to
acpk2avi - they both look the same at normal size, but when you blow it up
to double size or larger, the difference is very obvious.

  Actually, nobody has the supplemental disc. If you can get hold of it,
you'll be the first kid on the block. :-)

  The latter; it's the same Big Tray type seen in the original series.

  There were a few survivors, maybe about 20-25% of the Solomon garrison,
who fled through the shoal zone and had Ma Kube's force cover their
escape... the pretext for the Texas Colony sequence in the original series.
If a few of the Ace Corps pilots were indeed at Solomon for the battle,
they could have been among these escapees.

  It gouges the surface, but not very deeply. Looks hella impressive, though!

> I take it they _nailed_ it good, eh?

  Oh yeah! Basically, the colony drop caves in Jaburo's ceiling, collapsing
it into the caverns below. According to my strategy books, this gives you
an opening to invade what's left of Jaburo and end the game.

  Correct, but that's the weapon the Rick Dom is described as using in the
novels, so Char's Rick Dom is given special dispensation. :-)
