I would just like to say congratulations on getting TA out and oign a great job of it. I have been part of the beta from pretty early on and I think it is a terrific game. I was pretty leary about pre-ordering and was wondering if the expansion would really add much, but holy crap it has well exceeded my hopes and expectations. I am a pretty grizzled PC veteran (I have a copy of MS-DOS 2 somewhere) and am dissappointed with a lot of the games out there recently. Galciv2 with the TA expansion (even in beta form) has got to be ranked among my all time favourite games. I just hope it gets the press and reception it deserves. I also hope it makes you a bit of well deserved cash. Good job folks at Stardock!!
