Here we have some interesting news regarding the next TLG release:

TLG 3.0 is shaping up to be our largest mod release. So far the change log is quite large and we still have so much more to do. This release will correct some of the balancing issues of the TLG 2.3 release and make the ships looks much better and canon. This is especially true of the Cardassians that have had a complete texture rework done to make them look more like what we have seen. A lot of the bugs in TLG 2.3 have been ironed out with more being worked on daily. The release date of TLG 3.0 currently is unknown as the team wants to fix all of the issues that we know about to get a firm foundation for our campaign to really shine. Due t the demands of our multi-era campaign we need to work on every era in TLG to get them all on the same level of canon and quality so that the campaign is able to strike you with both its own great story writing but excellent execution within the game itself. The new campaign is really coming along nicely. Our first mission is working properly and we are currently making final tweaks to it. As we get closer to the release of TLG 3.0 some of the missions will be made available for people to try out. Our website has been updated as well so please feel free to stop by and give use feedback on TLG 2.3 and what you would like to see in TLG 3.0. We are also in need of beta testers to give us feedback on TLG 3.0 and give us suggestions as well. You can contact us on our site or just contact me. We are currently on our fourth internal beta. Below are the list of changes to TLG 3.0 starting from Beta 1:
