I think I'll take a crack at some of the things I think could be improved. People have already talked about space combat, so I'll go for the main system itself: Combat mods -- the ranged and melee mods are a hold over from original D&D. I'd like to see a non-class skill for combat, instead of the pr...

The impression I get is that AI and robotics exist, but that they have not seen the level of roll-out one might expect. There are a couple reasons I can think for this: an inherent, Luddite distrust of machine intelligence; a desire to avoid robotization in all sectors of life -- there were obviousl...

Community benefit(s), my left nut! I refuse to shop in one of their stores, in reality and online! And why is that? Wal-Mart seems to be the locus of a lot of hate, but why? It pays all of its workers better than mnimum wage, 82% of their workers have health care at some level, they provide cheap, ...

More likely a problem with the distributor they are dealing with.

If you're in the US, you might want to go through these guys: http://www.usacomicbooks.com/

I've found them to be pretty good on prices and quick on shipping.

Got hooked late in the second season while at the Defense Language Institute. Taped 'em all. Just bought the whole run on DVD from ebay for cheap. Best TV ever, with the possible exception of 'The Shield'.

I would be interested n the same; I actually thought Crusade got off to a surprisingly good start, when you consider it usually takes a sci-fi show at least a year to find it's legs.
