Wow - great find! :smt041

Interesting that the UK's Independent Enterprise User Group was still going in 1991, even though the last magazine was produced in February 1989.

If only more issues of the magazine had continued to be produced and the February 1989 issue was only the last one we know of...

At this time I don't have 3.5" floppy drive, then used RS-232 connection. On both computer running small BASIC program, the ST one read colors of each pixel and send it on RS-232, the Enterprise program receive it, and make a SET INK and PLOT on graphics page. At the end it is saved with VSAVE.

Pictures for Interlace Demo (1994), are also come via ST. The original PC GIF files converted to 4 colors with a ST graphics program. But now the files come on 3.5" disks to Enterprise :-)

Now I understand that Atari ST, like EP, also read/write FAT-12 floppies. :)

Next finding is related to french periodical encyclopedia ABC Informatique discovered at the end of 2017.
https://www.abandonware-magazines.org/affiche_mag.php?mag=62&num=1679&album=oui

I found same article in English encyclopedia (The Home Computer Advanced Course)

I didn't answer yesterday so as not to take the limelight away from you.

I think it's a great finding, and it clarifies a lot about how international publishers work.

In English "To Boldly Go" comes from the opening of each episode of the original Star Trek TV series. I don't know if that reference survived translation to other languages!?

I remember the series in my child years, a Latin-American off-voice was heard on every intro. I have rescued it from Youtube:

"La conquista del espacio...                                                                       Space...
El gran reto...                                                                                                the final frontier...
Estos son los viajes de la nave Enterprise.                                            These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.
Misión durante los próximos cinco años: explorar nuevos mundos. Its five-year mission: to explore new strange worlds.
Descubrir la vida y las civilizaciones que existan en el espacio extraterrestre. To seek out new life and new civilizations.
Debe llegar a donde jamás ha llegado el ser humano.                       To boldly go where no man has gone before!
Título: VIAJE A LAS ESTRELLAS"                                                                    STAR TREK

Sadly, the last phrase was wrongly translated on the Spanish-American version I remember...


Off-topic:

I would like to point that the early journeys of the Enterprise where made in the name of peace.

Strange the actual times.... when the Star Wars have been classified for children by Disney....

Offtopic:
The situation turned out to be quite comical. When I came across this English article a couple of days ago, I remembered that I had already seen it a couple of months ago and saved it to my disk. I start searching on my computer, but I can't find it. So I open a list of all the magazines I've inspected and look through it for anything that matches the numbering of the issues.
The French ABC Informatique is found, but all the files are dated 2017. But 2017 is not a few months ago. After a few more hours of searching, I did find that it was the Spanish version of the article. :)
I didn't expect the magazine titles to be very different. And that's why it took so long to find the right files on the computer.

Yes, Proeinsa was the official importer of the Enterprise models here in Spain.

I bought my Ep directly on their corporate headquarters.
