Just to clear this up XsniperX is no longer adding Star Trek infront of the name. It is now simply Bridge commander 2 and he is actively discussing the situation with CBS to get permission to use the Star Trek name.
Also Charging money to help pay for the engine to make a fan game is a pretty normal thing to do if you don't have alot of money and their is alot of interest.
I guess you don't realize that this is going to be a FAN MADE GAME and with little to no money to spend on the engine receiving donations to make it is the best course of action.
I know it has been a long time sense anyone has posted in this thread but all temp89 did was follow XsniperX around like a stalker and claim he was doing things wrong or this and that when really he was operating inside the law in the united states.
As to the stolen assets CBS has already informed us that when someone makes an un licensed item from the star trek universe CBS and or Paramount sill holds full rights to it. not to modder who went and made items from the univers without explicit permission.
For example XsniperX at one point over a year ago sniper was using several models from star trek bridge commander that random modelers made. when i asked CBS if they (the modelers) had any rights to said models they replied with a "no" CBS still has the rights. therefor XsniperX could use the models without the modelers permission.
But sense there was so much controversy over it (and everyone was crying like a baby) XsniperX has decided to go with someone else to get the models from and as far as i know is no longer using any models made by said (crybabies).
These are the facts and anyone who reads this should jump on over to the facebook page and take a look around just to see for yourself just how much progress is being made!https://www.facebook.com/stbc2
