Hi y'all

I used to be a physics graduate student at Boulder with background in AMO and plasma physics, and with a sweet tooth for good old Brazilian barbecue. Me and certain aspects of CU didn't get along, so currently I'm an electrical engineering (yes, I'm a traitor) grad student at BYU doing integrated optical waveguide stuff. Star Control was one of those games that I spent countless hours playing it as a teenager. It's such a deep universe for a game from that era that I'm really interested to see all the information organized into one place.

my Wiki quick links

Intended articles to-do list

possible minor location pages for completeness (though some may not be worth it)
In-game events (still need to work out appropriate titles)

Other goals

  • standardize layout of race pages
  • notes for pages with disagreements arising from internal discrepancies and 3DO vs. PC problems and esoteric references
  • none at the moment
  • standardize pages for constellations, star systems, and planets/moons/locations
  • potential planet pages for tweaking/expanding/cleaning up
  • none at the moment
  • determine the value of creating pages for the variety of creatures and characters mentioned in the Pkunk and Utwig dialog
  • intro sections for certain pages
  • none at the moment
  • remove references to the non-canonical term Second War, and merge that article into SC2 or UQM

Pointless articles

These are articles that IMHO should be deleted or merged into larger ones.

Greek letters for stars

For use in alphabetizing stars in star category by constellation name first, then star designation (greek letter)

  • Alpha - A
  • Beta - B
  • Gamma - C
  • Delta - D
  • Epsilon - E
  • Zeta - F
  • Eta - G
  • Theta - H
  • Iota - I
  • Kappa - K
  • Lambda - L
  • Mu - M
  • Nu - N
  • Xi - X

This skips J, and had a bit of a problem for eta and theta (could use Ha and Hb since Eta looks like H). Also skipped from N to X for Nu and Xi - only one constellation gets up that high
