30 GST years ago today the Starplay holovision spectacular, "Dirty Tangling" came out.

Quotes: "No one puts the dralasite in the corner."
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

It was followed by the less successful sequel: "Dirty Tangling; Laco Nights"
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Yes, other film titles from 30 GST could be:
  • "Beetlebooze," about a drunken Dralasite ghost; 
  • "Coming to Hentz," a disposed Yazarian tried to make it big on Hentz in the face of the Family of One; 
  • "Died Hard, but Slimy," a shoot'em up against a Sathar gang; 
  • "Small," starring Hom Tanks as an adult Vrusk who through weird science becomes a youngster; 
  • "Acid Rain Man," on the industrial world of Pale;
  • "Who Framed Dodger Babbit," a comedy murder mystery using CGI characters;
  • "The Land After Time," about the Eorna trying to reclaim their world;
  • "Killer Klowns from Outer Space," hey, it's got a good title already;
  • "Olivia: Mistress of the Light"

How about these:
  • "Short Circuits," a tale of how a small maintenance bot became the Puppetmaster;
  • "Ollaver and Company," a tale of a Yazarian business owner who goes toe-to-toe with PGC in the early days of the Frontier;
  • "R'amvo III," the third part of an "exciting" story where a Vrusk soldier fights the Sathar by himself;
  • "The EFG," a Dralasite version of a Human story where a friendly talking groundcar helps save Fromeltar from criminals;
  • "Bull Doorham," a story about an AstroBall team with a pretty Vrusk cheerleader, who, along with Yazarian superstar "Crash" Nazim, teach rookie "Torpedo" LaSwoosh to play the game well

No, I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide. Nor do I have any qualms in stating why. Tongue out

"Wouldn't that make you a very valuable Yazirian?"
The Yazirian stands up, drawing a laser pistol.
