Player Comments on ULYSSES: The Pegasi Incident
I was a bit skeptical at first, because of all the similarities to Star Trek, but by the time I reached the cliffhanger I was intrigued. How will the Ulysses' crew solve the mystery and avoid antagonizing the Cassians? Very good.
I think the story idea is strong; the overall concept is OK; the writing could use the tender ministrations of a pro or semi-pro editor, for grammar and succintness.
I'm looking forward to purchasing a copy when its ready.

Alright I played the game and went through all it's options and loved it. At first I thought the story was guided but then realized that there were different options and it was not always a happy ending. In fact different ends which I love. Great game and well written.... I'm looking forward to the actual books.

Absolutely excellent story with nicely branching paths that lead to different events. I noticed no problems with tenses. I'm not sure what you could change to make this better - it's great how it is. Nice pictures, too.

It's a fun read. Too bad it's not long enough, and no option of opening fire on some ship.... ;)

10/10 best choose your own story!

I was annoyed when the story cut off abruptly asking the reader to visit another website (which seemed unavailable) in order to finish. I feel as though an unspoken agreement btwn writer and reader was broken; we invested the time to immerse ourselves in the plot, learning characters, setting, etc... and no payoff.
Additionally, the story seemed somewhat uninspired in that it blatantly ripped off Star Trek. Virtually every cast member was a tweaked carbon copy of mostly TNG's characters (some TOS in there, tho). Couldn't the author do something less...predictable?

Good, but forced me to visit a website to finish the game!

As amazing as this is supposed to be, I couldn't find myself immersed in the plot. It's cliche and I really didn't want to read on by the time the book ended. Perhaps I didn't follow the most interesting route, but this was slightly funner than homework. I have really fun homework.

really? I thought this game lasted. But you have to go buy it from another site? Worst experience on this site to date.

It's a good story, I just feel like you should have given us a full book instead of a teaser. I suppose nobody likes unexpected marketing.

Very, very brilliant story. I liked how the story had many different paths to branch off from, and that I actually could follow the character and story development.

The only way to make it better is if you lets us play the full version so 7/8

Very well written, but I must point out the many, many, MANY similarities to Star Trek. I feel as though it ripped it off. Federation of Worlds? Really?
Also, the Ulysses was reminiscent of the Enterprise to the power of ten.

You've got a Federation, an intrepid starship commander and crew, a science officer, an alien empath counserlor, a strained relationship with an allied proud warrior race. It essentially feels like Star Trek with the serial numbers filed off. Also, I think for the CYOA format, one should stick with the traditional format of having a single character point of view. I didn't get the impression that the choices really mattered here as they always railroaded to the same point. But then again, this seems to just be the beginning of the story. Too bad the author bowed down to capitalism and are forcing us to purchase the rest of the book.

A very good story that ends with an exciting cliffhanger. Slightly short, but it is a demo after all. Definitely one to read if you enjoy sci-fi.

Gave it a 1 out of 5, not because i disliked the story, but because of your shameless profiteering.
Either release the full story for free, or take it off this site. People like you give capitalism a bad name.

Wow, rich development of both character personalities and the world at large. Background information is written into the story in an unobtrusive way, achieving a good balance between past and present. My only disappointment is that I can't finish the story right away! Once again, fantastic work!

Loved it. OK, so it sounds a bit like a star trek homage. I love Star Trek. Therefore I don't mind this at all. Great job, although next time try to come up with some more unique characters.

I agree, because authors shouldn't receive any payment whatsoever for their works. They should give books away for free, because everyone will be able to read the entire thing for free on the Internet.

i liked it a lot. the demo was nice and all but instead of purchasing the book i think you should make a second part of this so that we don't have to purchase the book.

Hi guys! The final, edited version of the book, has been published, and is available for purchase! This web playable demo is not the most recent version of the book. Spelling and grammar errors have been corrected by my editor since then, however, the story remains unchanged, so this demo gives a good idea of how the book goes. Thanks for reading it :) - Paul Turner
