When will this fine mod converted into Universe version?
As it looks right now, the 'Trek Team' should have the Picard Era mod out very soon! As a progress report, due to career and family restraints, Igard has honored me with full permission to take possession of his Star Trek modwork which includes his Picard, Archer, Kirk, and Spock era mods. I have formed and manage a "Trek Team" of sorts that include some VERY SERIOUS TREKKIES! We are in the final stages of tweaking and testing for the release of Igard's The Picard Era. My target date is before the first of August. Hopefully, there will be one more patch/update from Elliot upcoming before then that addresses the counterintelligence issues in the game at present. In the meanwhile, I'm finishing the Galactopedia pages and other file-work while our team members are working on the remaining details. One of the team has just finished finalizing the BORG, which was a bit of work to get as close to canon as the game allows us. Another has provided the Resource changeovers and Racial Traits. We are also fine-tuning stats on (at present) 520 Picard Era Race Characters.
I'm taking a path on these similar to what my buddy Paul (Haree78) has done with his Extended Mod (He's been a fantastic trailblazer - Thanks Paul!). Our mods will be made for a Star Trek format but retain both the essence of a classic Star Trek game (canon, without the Shakturi/Mechanoids) and also be totally playable in any of the other DW formats Elliot has provided. Pirate, Pre-Warp, etcetera.
This way, regular updates and/or bug fixes to just executable and system files won't break the mods. In addition, every player/modder can still modify the theme further to their liking as well. So if you dislike the DW UI, for instance, you can use Das's or dabble with it on your own. The biggest delay has been awaiting the last update that allows the GameText file to be read from the theme. Now that's being tested.
Sorry to give such a lengthy response! But I figured it was time since we are very close now and I've
been so busy on it I haven't given a progress report in a month. So put in your orders now for your
shipments of vintage Romulan Ale while supplies last!

Shields are useless in "The Briar Patch"...
