Log Message:
Fixed bug with metaserver - if server entry in metacache indicated one status, and we
receive a new server packet with a different status, that packet is no long rejected
based on packet age, new packets are considered priority in case of such a 
Added 9  new star trek theme songs.
Added 3 new netrekrc options (newSoundEffects, newSoundMusic, and newSoundMusicBkgd)
that allow for sound effect and music playback to be toggled separately.
Random intro sounds (instead of just the typical Kirk intro) - now all 5 trek series are represented.
Random genocide sounds (4 end themes from the trek series).
Music now fades out over 5 seconds upon entering game, rather than ending abruptly.
