Share this Rating Title: The Last Starfighter 6. Use the HTML below. Centuries ago, the leaders of the Old Empire realized something was causing hostile aliens to flee from the center of the galaxy.
The greatest minds from each of the races gathered at this location, where they discovered that the Crystal Planet was slowly eradicating all life.
In a last act, they sent a human named Commander McConnell to end it, but he failed. At the start of the game, the Crystal Planet is slowly moving through the galaxy.
The planet causes nearby stars to flare up and destroy all life in the system. The player must explore solar systems, gather clues, and find special artifacts that grant access to the Crystal Planet, ultimately destroying it before the player's home system flares.
Because their metabolism is extremely slow due to their crystalline makeup, they are not even aware of outside life and have come to view other races as a virus.
The game is won after the player successfully plants an artifact on the Crystal Planet's surface and retreats back into space, causing the planet to explode, though the game can still be played after the Crystal Planet is destroyed.
Starflight was developed by Binary Systems, a five-man team consisting of Rod McConnell, Greg Johnson lead designer , Alec Kercso programming , Tim C.
Lee graphics and programming , and Bob Gonsalves sound. The team coded the game mostly in Forth  with a few key routines written in x86 assembler.
Forth was chosen since it is easier to use than assembler and more compact. This was important because the game had to fit into K of RAM.
It took "fifteen man-years " and three actual years to develop the game. It's funny looking back on it now—just by happenstance I ended up creating a very open ended system where players could go anywhere and do whatever and a story sort of unfolded.
The group designed what they called a " fractal generator", which took six man-years to develop and allowed them to increase the number of planets in the game from 50 to They created a separate ecosystem generator over the course of two man-years of work.
Starflight was released for PC on August 15, By December Starflight sold over , copies,  and it eventually went on to sell over a million copies.
Hartley and Patricia Lesser complimented the game in their "The Role of Computers" column in the December issue of Dragon , calling it "stunning in its presentation and play".
Science fiction writer Jerry Pournelle named Starflight his game of the month for January , stating that it was "as much a career as a game" and "fascinating".
I have found this game obsessively fascinating—and the graphics and player interface are superb". Brilliantly designed and programmed In the June edition of Games International Issue 15 , John Harrington patiently endured the first stage of ship building, but said that after the ship launched, "the game comes into its own [ In , Computer Gaming World declared Starflight the 55th-best computer game ever released.
Ybarra said in that the game had created a "beachhead in the arena of sci-fi" for Electronic Arts. In , PC Gamer declared it the 36th-best computer game ever released, and the editors called it "the most authentic Star Trek experience you could have on a PC - and it wasn't even a Trek game".
Starflight had a sequel, Starflight 2: Trade Routes of the Cloud Nebula. Reiche was inspired by the game to create Star Control , with Johnson coding three of the alien species in the game;  Computer Gaming World called Star Control II a spiritual successor to Starflight.

Bleed air from the compressor's 17th stage was used for a number of purposes: the BLCS, cabin pressurization and air conditioning, hot-air jet rain removal, fuel transfer, canopy and windshield defogging and defrosting, pressure for the pilot's anti-G suit, pressurization and cooling of the nose-mounted radar equipment, and purging of gas from the M61 autocannon.
The accessory drive ran two hydraulic pumps, two variable-frequency generators, the generator for the tachometer, and pumps for engine fuel and oil.
As the first aircraft to carry the weapon, testing of the Starfighter revealed issues with the initial version of the M the Gatling -mechanism cannon suffered problems with its linked ammunition , being prone to misfeed and presenting a foreign object damage FOD hazard as discarded links were occasionally sucked into the engine.
A linkless ammunition feed system was developed for the upgraded M61A1 installed in the FC; the M61A1 has subsequently been used by a wide variety of American combat aircraft.
The cannon, mounted in the lower part of the port fuselage, was fed by a round drum behind the pilot's seat. With its firing rate of 6, rounds per minute, the cannon would empty the drum after just over seven seconds of continuous fire.
Two AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles could be carried on the wingtip stations, which could also be used for fuel tanks.
The FC and later models added a centerline pylon and two underwing pylons for bombs, rocket pods, or fuel tanks; the centerline pylon could carry a nuclear weapon.
The two FS variants added a pair of fuselage pylons beneath the intakes for conventional bomb carriage and an additional pylon under each wing, for a total of nine.
Early Starfighters were also capable of carrying and launching a single MB-1 AIR-2A Genie rocket-powered nuclear missile using an extending trapeze launcher.
This configuration was tested on a single aircraft but was not adopted for service use; however, NASA later used it for launching test rockets.
The radar also had a third, receive-only mode useful for locking onto sources of interference from electronic countermeasures ECM.
In the late s, Lockheed developed a more advanced version of the Starfighter, the FS, for use by the Italian Air Force. Similar to the FG, Lockheed produced two main variants of the FS: an all-weather interceptor caccia intercettore , CI and a strike aircraft caccia bombardiere , CB.
The new radar and guidance systems enabled the aircraft to carry the new AIM-9L Sidewinder infrared-guided missile replacing the older AIM-9B as well as the AIM-7 Sparrow and the Selenia Aspide radar-guided missiles.
Early Starfighters used a downward-firing ejection seat the Stanley C-1 , out of concern over the ability of an upward-firing seat to clear the "T-tail" empennage.
This presented obvious problems in low-altitude escapes, and 21 USAF pilots, including test pilot Captain Iven Carl Kincheloe Jr.
The Starfighter was designed for production rates of up to 20 airplanes per day from a single assembly line. The entire aircraft was designed for modular assembly and disassembly: the two principal fuselage sections were split along the vertical centerline and completely assembled in two separate halves; all equipment, including wiring and plumbing, were installed inside the two-halves before being joined together.
The wings were then attached with only ten bolts plus a fairing. Although the F was designed as an air-superiority fighter, the United States Air Force's immediate need at the time was for a supersonic interceptor.
In the late s, the United States government believed it was significantly behind the USSR in terms of the size of its jet-powered bomber fleet.
In response, the USAF had ordered two interceptors from Convair, the F Delta Dagger and the F Delta Dart , but both aircraft were experiencing long development delays.
The Starfighter's speed and rate-of-climb performance intrigued the Air Force, who pressed the FA into service as an interim interceptor with the Air Defense Command ADC , even though its range and armament were not well-suited for the role.
On 26 February , the first unit to become operational with the FA was the 83rd Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Hamilton AFB , California. The newly operational aircraft experienced problems with both the J79 engine and M61 cannon, and after three months of service, the unit was grounded following a series of engine-related accidents.
The aircraft were then fitted with the JGE-3B engine and another three ADC units were equipped with the FA. During this time, the Air Force's interest in the Starfighter was waning due to a shift in strategy toward fighters with longer ranges and heavier ordnance loads.
In August , only a few months after establishing operational readiness with the F, the 83rd FIS was assigned to an air defense and deterrence mission in Taiwan after the People's Republic of China began an intense artillery campaign against the Nationalist Chinese on the disputed islands of Quemoy and Matsu.
Tension between the two forces was high; artillery duels were ongoing since the first crisis in , and the People's Liberation Army Air Force PLAAF had recently relocated MiGs and MiGs to airfields on the mainland opposite Taiwan.
According to Colonel Howard "Scrappy" Johnson, one of the F pilots deployed to Taiwan, the Starfighters' presence was so the PLAAF would "track them on their radar screens On 10 September, the first Fs arrived in Taiwan, delivered disassembled by C Globemaster II transport aircraft.
This was the first time that air transport was used to move fighter aircraft long distances. Within 30 hours of arriving, First Lieutenant Crosley J.
Fitton had the first of the 83rd's airplanes in the air, and by 19 September the entire unit was ready for day or night alert status.
USAF Gen Laurence Cuter, commander-in-chief of the Pacific Air Forces , reported that the FA had "made a tremendous impression on both sides of the Taiwan Strait".
During the Berlin Crisis of , President John F. Kennedy ordered , United States National Guard and reserve personnel to active duty on 30 August, in response to Soviet moves to cut off Allied access to Berlin.
On 1 November , the USAF mobilized three more ANG fighter interceptor squadrons. In late October and early November, eight of the tactical fighter units flew to Europe with their aircraft in Operation Stair Step.
Because of their short range, 60 FAs were airlifted to Europe in late November, among them the st FIS and th FIS. As with the Taiwan crisis three years earlier, the Starfighter did not directly engage any enemy fighters, but its presence provided a powerful air-superiority deterrent; it demonstrated very quick reaction times and exemplary acceleration during practice intercepts, and proved superior to all other fighters in the theater.
The crisis ended in the summer of and the ANG personnel returned to the United States, but the F's solid performance helped convince the ADC to recall some Fs back into active USAF service the following year.
The FC entered service with USAF Tactical Air Command TAC as a multi-role fighter and fighter-bomber. The th Tactical Fighter Wing TFW at George AFB , California, was the first unit to be equipped with the type, in September On 19 April the th Tactical Fighter Squadron TFS of the th TFW arrived at Da Nang AB to help protect US F Thunderchief fighter-bombers against MiGs and especially MiGs that were beginning to be flown by the Vietnamese People's Air Force VPAF.
The F was also deployed extensively as a barrier combat air patrol BARCAP protector for the EC D Warning Star airborne early warning aircraft patrolling off the North Vietnamese coast.
Twenty-five MiG kills were scored by fighters controlled by EC Big Eye missions, and their Starfighter escorts played a vital role in ensuring their safety.
From the first F deployment in April to December, Starfighters flew a total of 2, combat sorties. These sorties resulted in the loss of five aircraft, one from the th TFS, which deployed from April to July ,  and four from the th Tactical Fighter Squadron , which deployed from July to October Smith strayed into Chinese airspace and was shot down by a Chinese Shenyang J-6 ; two more collided in mid-air while searching for Smith's missing jet.
Starfighters returned to Vietnam when the th Tactical Fighter Squadron re-deployed from June until August In July , the Starfighter units transitioned to the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II.
In , these TAC aircraft were transferred to the Air National Guard. By the late s, USAF fighter doctrine had shifted away from air superiority fighter against fighter combat and placed more importance on the interceptor fighter against bomber combat and tactical fighter-bomber roles.
The F was deemed inadequate for either, lacking both payload capability and endurance in comparison with other USAF aircraft.
As a result, the USAF procured only examples of the Starfighter, including both single-seat and two-seat versions. The F's service with the USAF was quickly wound down after the aircraft's second deployment to southeast Asia in The last use of the F Starfighter in US markings was training pilots for the West German Air Force , with a wing of TFGs and FGs based at Luke Air Force Base , Arizona.
Although operated in USAF markings, these aircraft which included German-built aircraft were owned by West Germany.
They continued in use until The kill with an AIM-9B Sidewinder is claimed by the Pakistani Air Force PAF as the first combat kill by any Mach 2 aircraft and the PAF's first missile kill, though the Indian Air Force IAF denied the loss.
Devaiah shot down a PAF F Starfighter, after the aircraft was badly damaged by a missile fired by the Starfighter. As a result both pilots ejected but Devaiah died just minutes after ejection.
He was awarded with the Maha Vir Chakra after 23 years in The first direct air-to-air combat engagements between an F and a MiG took place during the Indo-Pakistani War of MiGFLs flown by the IAF shot down at least two, and possibly four, PAF Starfighters without sustaining any losses.
The first confirmed loss occurred on 12—13 December , when MiGFLs of the IAF's No. The second confirmed PAF F loss occurred several days later on 17 December when Flight Lieutenant Samad Changezi of No.
The IAF also claimed two additional PAF Starfighter kills that same day, one of which was the aircraft flown by Changezi's wingman, Squadron Leader Rashid Bhatti; the PAF claimed he returned without damage to Masroor.
Post-war sanctions forced an early retirement of Fs from the PAF due to lack of maintenance support.
Major Hu Shih-lin and Captain Shih Bei-puo each shot down one MiG One F did not return to base and its pilot was listed as missing in action.
F designer Kelly Johnson stated that this particular battle illustrated the relative strengths and weaknesses of the Starfighter in aerial combat.
At the same time that the F was falling out of U. The redesigned aircraft was chosen over the English Electric P. The Starfighter found a new market with other NATO countries as well, and eventually more than 2, of all variants of the F were built for international air forces.
The so-called "Deal of the Century" produced substantial income for Lockheed, but the resulting bribery scandals caused considerable political controversy in Europe and Japan.
The international service of the F began to wind down in the late s, being replaced in many cases by the General Dynamics F Fighting Falcon , but it remained in service with some air forces for another two decades.
The last operational Starfighters served with the Italian Air Force, which retired them on 31 October The Starfighter served with NASA from until A total of 12 FA, FB, FN, and TFG aircraft performed high-speed and altitude flight research at Dryden Flight Research Center.
The F also performed many safety chase missions in support of advanced research aircraft, and provided a launch platform for sounding rockets.
In August , the USAF transferred YFA serial number to the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics NACA, the predecessor of NASA , designating it NFA.
In preparation for the X test program of the late s, it was fitted with the reaction control system RCS consisting of hydrogen peroxide-powered thrusters mounted in the aircraft's nose and wingtips.
This system provided valuable experience for future X pilots and astronauts in spacecraft control and maneuverability.
The trials began in and concluded in , after which the aircraft was used for other NASA purposes until it was retired in November Between August and October , Lockheed delivered three single-seat FG Starfighters to NASA, designated FN, for use as high-speed chase aircraft.
These were the only Starfighters built by Lockheed specifically for NASA; all other NASA aircraft were transferred from the USAF.
The third of these FNs, number , was destroyed on 8 June in a mid-air collision with a North American XB during a publicity photo flight for General Electric.
One NASA FG, registration NNA, was equipped with a flight test fixture FTF consisting of a pylon mounted on the fuselage centerline.
The FTF contained instruments to record and transmit research data in real-time to engineers in mission control at Dryden.
One application of the FTF was testing heat-resistant tiles for use on the Space Shuttle , ensuring their bonding was sufficient at high speeds and evaluating their performance when exposed to moisture.
The last of these missions flew on 31 January , bringing the F's service with NASA to a close after more than 18, flights. In , 4Frontiers Corporation and Starfighters Inc a private F operator began working together on a project to launch suborbital sounding rockets from Fs flying out of Kennedy Space Center.
First launches were expected to occur in Unlike most aircraft, the F was landed with the engine at high power, as the boundary layer control system lost effectiveness below approximately 82 percent engine rpm.
Pilots were instructed not to cut the throttle while the plane was still airborne, as doing so would cause an abrupt and generally uneven loss of lift.
To limit the Starfighter's landing roll, or distance traveled while decelerating from touchdown to taxi speed, powerful brakes were combined with a foot 4.
The F series all had a very high wing loading made even higher when carrying external stores. During the early stall tests, the aircraft demonstrated the tendency to suddenly "pitch up" once it reached an angle of attack of approximately 15 degrees.
This "pitch up" would result in a rapid increase in angle of attack to approximately 60 degrees, accompanied by lateral and directional oscillation, and followed by sudden uncontrolled yaw and roll.
The high angle of attack area of flight was protected by a stick shaker system to warn the pilot of an approaching stall, and if this was ignored, a stick pusher system would pitch the aircraft's nose down to a safer angle of attack; this was often overridden by the pilot despite flight manual warnings against this practice.
Another serious design issue that the aircraft encountered was T-tail flutter; Dick Heppe, who served as the initial project aerodynamics engineer for the F program, recalled that "without question, the single most difficult technical challenge encountered in the XF and FA development programs was the catastrophic flutter problem of the unique T-tailed empennage configuration.
During a test flight of the FA, the surviving XF was flying chase to observe, and encountered violent T-tail flutter that caused the tail to separate from the aircraft.
The test pilot of the XF successfully ejected. This behavior was remedied by increasing the thickness of the stainless steel box covers used in the tail assembly.
The J79 was a brand-new engine, with development continuing throughout the YFA test phase and during service with the FA. The engine featured variable incidence compressor stator blades, a design feature that altered the angle of the stator blades automatically with altitude and temperature.
It was discovered that large and sudden temperature changes e. The dangers presented by these engine failures were compounded by the downward ejection seat, which gave the pilot little chance of a safe exit at low level.
The engine systems were subsequently modified and the ejection seat changed to the more conventional upward type.
Uncontrolled oscillations of its wingtip-mounted fuel tank sheared one wing off of an FB; this problem was apparent during testing of the XF prototype and was eventually resolved by filling the tank compartments in a specific order.
Early Fs also lacked modulated afterburning, and as a result combat operations could only be performed at one of only two settings, either maximum military power or full afterburner.
Effectively this gave the pilot the choice of two level-flight speeds: Mach 1 or Mach 2. A further engine problem was that of uncommanded opening of the variable thrust nozzle usually through loss of engine oil pressure, as the nozzles were actuated using engine oil as hydraulic fluid ; although the engine would be running normally at high power, the opening of the nozzle resulted in a drastic loss of thrust to below that required to maintain level flight.Official website for Starfighter, an erotic sci-fi m/m webcomic.
