SGJ Podcast #187 – Star Crusader

By | 01/19/2017


Welcome to this week’s episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast my friends! This week, Jim and I sit down with F.J. Lennon, successful author and also the producer, director and writer of 1994’s space fighter sim classic, Star Crusader. We talk to F.J. about a lot of the games he’s worked on (he was at Microprose y’all! Microprose!), the rise and fall of Full Motion Video (FMV) gaming, and of course, Star Crusader, which was a high point in his gaming career. It’s a really fantastic discussion all around, and let me tell y’all, we had a BLAST not only talking about this game, but so many others in the 90s that I couldn’t write ’em all down.

Next week on the show, we welcome back Joe Mastroianni of the Upper Memory Block Podcast to discuss the X-Wing series in detail! If you have any questions or comments, drop them below, email us at or hit us up on the forums.
