RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
The merchant planet Solbot of the Wondda galaxy was not always a merchant planet and a member of the Allied Planets organization. Not long ago it waged a bitter war with the malevolent aliens form the planet Tarra, who planned to seize this strategic outpost. As an allied pilot I, too, joined the fight only to come out of it as a captain Zed Pelin, a pilot of the merchant company on a new and independent planet. That could be the end of my story, but rather it's just a beginning.
