About Tuna-Matra[edit]

I have been a fan of space for as long as I can remember. I used to be able to correct my teachers when it came time to study the beyond. As I was cruising about my video games, which was mainly first person shooter and RTS, I encounted a game that my dad had played years ago. I had watched my dad play it, I had played it myself on occasion, but at the time I was too young to grasp the full intent. The name of the game was StarFlight. About a year ago, I decided it was time to find a way to play that game once again. It had action, negototiation, and countless hours of exploring a galaxy in your starship. That description probably reminds you of another game to which this Wiki is dedicated. Anyway, as I was searching for a version of the game that would work on modern computers (StarFlight is old, it was made in the late 80's according to Wikipedia), but alas there was none. However during my search, I discovered another very similar game. Star Control II, unfortunately, that game could no longer operate on modern computers either. Luckily for me, there was a link to The Ur-Quan Masters website, which made me delighted. The game surpassed my expectations by far, and It soon rose to one of my favorite games. I really enjoyed this gmae as it was a open-ended, spacefaring adventure. Then, one day, as I was cruising through space, I noticed that the Spathi had dissapeared! I made the Trek to their homestar and found that they were Slave Shielded! Well, that was a dissapointment, for the rest of the game I missed their humorous debates with me, and I wondered if I would ever see them again. I didn't. Later on I noticed that the Kohr-Ah's territory was moving and engulfing other races, and shortly later those races had dissapeared. I kept on telling myself "its all in your head", but it wasn't, and I lost the game due to the fact that all my allies had been wiped out before I had been able to recover items that were important to the storyline. Thus, my downfall. I had to restart the entire game and only recently defeated the Sa-Matra.
