Beta 4 (not sure which, I can remember waiting until the start of a game to play as the previous one was ending).

Peter? He might have been 2nd, his identity was given away and he was killed early thus we lost scans.

3. Who was your favourite LC?
So many to choose from, Chopper, Legion, whykt... Pharaoh was good this game. Boris is always entertaining, I don't think he'd like the limit on the legion news length now though.

My boyfriend at the time starting playing after typing http://www.tvsonline.co.uk into a browser because he wanted to buy a new TV!

5. Who's your favourite TVS person of all time? (no offense to the rest :D)

MaxPower, BorgCube, Mother (clearly making me choose just 1 wasn't going to happen).

Yes

8. Do you still remember scantowers?
I remember, but I wasn't too active during those games.

9. Do you still remember how you had to make sure the LC's ship didn't get destroyed?
Yes
