Frontier: First Encounters Videos

Some of the more common faces from the (in)famous FFE videos

Frontier First Encounters marked the first inclusion of Full Motion Video (FMV) in an Elite game. It was only available in the CD version of FFE, as the videos took up some 500MB of storage space. General opinion is that this was a wasted 500MB, as the videos vary between excruciating and hilarious. Poor editing, wooden acting and toe-curling dialogue is generally the order of the day but for the true Frontier fan, acquisition of these videos is essential, if only for brightening an otherwise dull day.
The best way to get hold of the CD version of FFE is to check the auctions in the PC and Video Gaming section of Ebay
