It sounds very much like Paradise.
What scale? I guess more players? Planets? Shouldn't be too hard
to expand that (0-9a-zA-Z + 2 more == 64 total players ;).

At least tell him about Paradise and that he should give it a try.
And visit #netrek + #paradise next to this list.

Does Paradise have this ...?

Yes, with SC not needing to orbit (makes them "real" scouts ;).

Yes, although many features appeared when the hightime has passed,
so it wasn't tested to the limits.
Having joined Kud's server a few weeks ago, it didn't feel
error-free, or at least could be improved performance-wise.
Or maybe my client was just too old. ;)

Yes, that's Paradise's "real" warp. ;)

Uh, I guess that would be a _lot_ more players than ever had been
on any P-server, but hey... why has '0' to be limited to just 1
race? Why not have F0-9a-zA-Z and likewise R0-9a-zA-Z, this gives

a) Paradise is definitely closer to TNG.
b) That doesn't mean there is _less_ talking than in Bronco.
c) Talking is still very important, especially on the long
lonesome warp trips to other galaxies, so ... combat- wise
there is not necessarily more action, it's just different.
d) But given the new range of possibilities, it likewise offers
and requires a new range of strategies and tactics, which due to
the nature of Bronco don't (can't) vary as much.

Tell him about Paradise.
