[[Shofixti]] [[Scout]]
 
 
In [[Star Control I]], I usually played the [[Alliance of Free Stars|Alliance]] when in Melee mode, where I chose the [[Shofixti]] [[Scout]] as a kamikaze sacrifice to fight the computer enemy before choosing the real counter-attacker. Eventually, I could kill more ships before having to use the [[Glory device]], and the [[Scout]] became my ship of choice.
 
 
 
I liked playing the [[Arilou]] [[Skiff]] because of the cheap planet-hugging tactic. I could also defeat the [[Mycon]] [[Podship]] with relative ease - something I could not readily accomplish with the [[Scout]].
 
 
 
===Star Control II===
 
[[Supox]] [[Blade]] & [[Spathi]] [[Eluder]]
 
 
 
In [[Star Control II]], I found that the mobility of the [[Supox]] [[Blade]] was a huge boon against the greatly improved computer AI. I could also readily defeat my brother, who favoured using larger ships. The computer AI could easily be fooled by a strafing run or full charge-reverse charge manoeuvre.
 
 
 
I didn't usually play the [[Hierarchy]] ships in [[Star Control I]] because of the general lack of mobility of their ships, but after using Captain [[Fwiffo]]'s specially modified, super-efficient, mass-destruction-oriented starship (which could lay siege to an entire planetary system if he so chose), I began to appreciate the near-invincibility of the [[Eluder]] against the [[Ur-Quan]] [[Kzer-Za]] and [[Kohr-Ah]] ships. The great mobility and B.U.T.T. missiles made this a very effective ship.

I like to hold fuzzy little animals and give them huggie-wuggies.

Phoenix in brief

I have been a fan of Star Control I and Star Control II since 1992. I am new to the world of Wiki, but this is the perfect subject for me in which to contribute. I am currently a tech writer in the software development field and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I don't remember too much of the history and storylines, therefore, I will tend to contribute more to the tactical articles than the storyline articles. I will also try to edit and copyedit content as I see them.

I'm also on Wikipedia (as Deathphoenix).

The Ultronomicon currently consists of 580 articles.

Favourite ships

In general, I favour fast, mobile ships with medium- to long-range weaponry.

Star Control I

Shofixti Scout
