Stargate - Empire at War: Pegasus Chronicles is a total conversion for the fantastic game Star Wars - Empire at War: Forces of corruption. This total conversion will replace every single Star Wars asset of the original game with Stargate assets. This includes units, buildings, icons, sounds, videos and so much more. Pegasus Chronicles offers 3 playable races, the Ta'uri (alliance between Earth and the Asgard), Anubis (a mighty systemlord) and the Wraith. Beside these 3 playable races, you will meet many non-playable ones like the Replicators, the Asurans, the systemlord alliance, the Aschen, the Ori and many more. Each faction will have several space and land units, well known from the series or completely new ones. Contrary to our first full version for the normal Empire at War, the next release will offer finished GC maps, in which you can play through the known Stargate storylines and experience a lot of never seen missions and adventures.

Report RSS Time for a drastic change!

We have to inform you of a troubling development...

Posted by on

Hello dear community,

we have to inform you of a troubling development: just shortly after the release of Pegasus Prelude to stable we got contacted that our mod is under investigation by the Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group as statutory representative of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, better known as MGM, the owner of Stargate's intellectual property (IP).

While no immediate action has been taken against us, many mods featuring Stargate content including ours have been informed that an IP claim has been made.

We duly hope that dust will settle over this matter, but we've been informed that the mod might have to be taken down if intellectual property has been used without explicit consent. These are the terms and we are making our projects based on MGM's intellectual property. This we cannot fight. Just like many modding projects containing Battlestar Galactica IP have been pulled in 2011 it appears that as things stand at present, the prospects are very poor to continue our mod in it's current form.

We love our project way too much to end it here and now so we have decided to make a drastic step: in the next version of our mod, we have decided to replace the ship models with those known from Star Trek as we believe to be on the save side here.

You can see an early version of our replacement in the screenshot below:

Amongst others we change the following:

Tau´ri is now changed to the Federation of Planets.
Goa´ulds are now changed to the Klingon Empire
Wraiths are now changed to the Dominion.

In the end, we hope the change wouldn´t be that bad. After all, StarGate, or Star Trek, it doesn´t really matter as long as there is “Star”, in the title.

Regards,
STMG (yeah, we had to change our name as well)

You guessed it...we will stay true to our beloved Stargate universe!

There are some good upgrade icons for weapons, shields, and armor for Ta'uri and Goa´uld in that sci-fi mod. The ones you have for Wraith are perfect as they are though.
