I almost...ALMOST...bought Battlecruiser 3000 AD.

I may have Battlecruiser 3000AD around here somewhere, although I don't know for sure whether I do or not. The collector in my made me buy the boxed version of Battlecruiser Millennium despite Derek Smart having released it on the Internet for free.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

Battlecruiser 3000AD was WAY ahead of its time...if Derek Smart wasn't his own worst enemy, he may have been successful with the franchise. Its a real shame.
It was buggy as hell - at least one version of it was.

But I agree - ahead of it's time in gameplay.

The concept maybe but the execution was abysmal.  I tried and tried to like it but it was just so bad to play.

My experience was the same. Yes, I mean in concept. My recollection is that most of the systems didn't really work and didn't have much use anyway. But the idea...the idea of controlling a capital vessel stocked with Officers, Crew, Marines, Away Vessels, Weapons, etc. The vision was very forward thinking...

The entire series is an unmitigated abject disaster.
