This site is an Elite fan site. It is more focused on the technology, the expanded universe and pseudo-science rather than the game itself.

Long Range Cruiser

by The Elite BBS

In May 2002, the EBBS embarked on what would become a masterwork of collaborative fiction. Written in all by ten or more authors over three years, it is a sweeping tale of consipiracy, betrayal, friendship and ambition. For the first time, it is here compiled into seven pocket sized collections.

Princes and Pirates: The HPA Saga Part Five
Emotions and cultures clash as the playes approach their final places...
