It seems that the art of stellar cartography isn't dead yet. Bob found this site which takes the CIC's universe maps and converts them in to XML. The XML generator seems to have been written by Michal Banach for the Vega Strike project, hence why the generated XML contains non-canon statistics such as number of planets.
We've noticed that people have been selling copies of Academy episodes on CD or even as VCDs on auction sites. Presumably the episodes are just copies of our own rips. Before you dash off to buy, remember that all of the episodes are available to download from the CIC - free! So once again, here are the URLs for all of the episodes.
You can find more information on the series in our WCA section.
