Deep Space Explorer, from the same team that brought you the acclaimed Starry Night family of astronomy software products, is an interactive 3D odyssey through tens of thousands of galaxies and back to the horizons of deep time. World-renowned astronomer Brent Tully has compiled an extensive database of 28,000 galaxies, which has never before been available in a desktop astronomy program. Complementing the 3-dimensional simulator is Deep Space Explorer's special media player, which explains the workings of our universe in over an hour of dynamic, live-action video. Television, feature film and stage performer Chase Masterson (Star Trek DS9) gives voice to the Intelligent Agent that narrates the multimedia elements. Your special Intelligent Agent guides you through 19 different realms of your vast Universe with pop-up multimedia presentations and short documentary explanations detailing the wonderful mechanics of the cosmos. Starship controls allow you to speed up, slow down, or change direction.

So, can the intact image be added to the internal server, please. I have issues with mega (can't use it).

This copy has an intact disc image

Sorry, but that's yet another copy of the previous corrupt image. The directory data is there, but the file contents toward the end of the disc are missing. Here's how you can tell:

  • Open the file Movies:051_The Tully The movie will stop at 1:20 on the line "The best explan—"
  • The file in any of the folders below that ("052 Galactic Lives" through "063 The Way of Things") won't play at all.
  • Similarly, the variables.txt files until folder 051 contain text used by the program; after that they display either garbage or blank space.

The image I uploaded does not have these issues.

I uploaded the copy that was here in 2012. This copy has an intact disc image. It also contains a serial number...not sure if it is needed.

This is well done and runs very smoothly on my PPC. I loaded the file in Toast and ran straight from there. I did not need to copy anything to the hard drive with the G4 800Mhz Mac.
