First ever successful solo double action mission of Space Alert, worth 37 points. Killed everything except a Scout. Soon I need to think about adding in the New Frontier yellow threats...

Ridley Scott. WTF were you thinking? Electrifying a 2000 year old head brings it back to life. DNA reforms from nothing. Meet alien, alien rips your head off. Giant stone head included for no apparent reason. In fact the entire movie is a head case. At least you could have paid some experts to tell you why this was all bad in so many ways. Sigh.

Take away the spaceships and fancy spacesuits, and what you have is a Fantasy movie with Magic.

A near flawless victory in single player Space Alert, mission 8 with advanced threats mixed in for 30 points. If only I had remembered about visual confirmations...

Thanks for your help, David. I think this is going to be one of those games we simply have to muddle through and learn through trial and error.
My husband and I have been watching  a few tutorials throughout the day, which has helped clear a few points of confusion. 
I've heard so many good things about this game though that I'm confident this initial trauma of simply learning it will be worthwhile.

Single player Space Alert really gets the blood pumping. The Sitting Duck survives with 5 points internal damage from a Seeker that got away.

Saw a few snowflakes in central Auckland on Khyber Pass Rd this morning. They lasted for about 30 seconds.
