Some nice desk tops. Really like the firefly one. To bad Lucas is behind the series being cancelled. Reminded him too much of the gritty universe he created with star was and though Josh was ripping him off. Well Lucas never came out with a Han Solo series, so what the hell is his problem?
Where did you get this info/idea from? I read the George Lucas interview where he forgot about any professional demeanor and basically called Joss a talentless hack that should never have been given any attention by Hollywood.

Speaking of never knowing what "Ol George" is like, well, I'll NEVER see anything of his again. He can get bent as far as I'm concerned.

It has been a fact that George Lucas caused the demise of Firefly the series because he considered it a rip off of Star Wars.

The higher ups at 20th Century, not wanting to piss off lucas, quietly cancelled the series. They would not allow it to be revived in any form until AFTER Lucas has released the last SW movie.

Lucas is a childish geek who needs his ego to be deflated.

I've read a number or articles about him that paint him as an opinionated tantrum-thrower who tosses his influence around to get what he wants, or doesn't want, to happen.

Sad to hear that he's had a hand in scramblin' Firefly/Serenity. You'd think a man who had to work hard to get his ideal project into fruition wouldn't begrudge another his opportunity.

Guess things get ugly when you see a real competitor coming up on ya....

Lucas killed BSG in the 70's. He got Fox to pretty much ignore the Wing Commander (the Movie) as they did not do any advertising for it. It was a pretty good movie on its own, but again, it reminded Lucas of Star Wars.

Hell Lucas things every show is stealing from his PRECIOUS Star Wars idea. GIVE ME A F***ING BREAK LUCAS!!~

Lucas is like the fat kid with the ball. If any one else shows up with a new ball, he crys foul and says its his ball. Remember, Lucas can't call children children, he has to call them younglings.... pffft.

Never the less, Star Wars is still a brillant movie and I will always have respect for Lucas for bring it to us.

I respect the man's work, but certainly not the man himself.

Actually, I was referring to the font rendering - I actually didn't like the graphics set. I prefer the buttons David Gervais did for his Miner Mod...

"Default" = "-adobe-times-"

I had tried to get se4 fonts working once or twice but I like adobe-times more anyway.
