It wasn’t until I spoke to a friend of mine who got the game before me that I found out that he had no counters either. Considering the amount of editing that goes into making a game for mass release then this must count as a no-no, especially when one of the entries is for a 28 year old woman!

The ship to ship combat system is very fast and easy to learn and within a few moments you can get the hang of it.

There always seems to be some kind of problem when it comes to Europe and Babylon 5! December finally saw the release of the Earthforce Sourcebook. Here was something I was really looking forward to getting stuck into, having spoken to Jon earlier in the year 97 at Euro Gen Con and got the low down on the system.

Books by Joseph Cochran. Mistakes in grammar and spelling are all throughout the book wourcebook I was surprised to find that Dr Franklin’s father Richard Franklin played in the show by sci-fi veteran Paul Winfield is a clone!
