Pros:
Based on the Sci-Fi TV show, this theme package includes a BMP wallpaper for both 800x600 and 1024x768 display sizes, 13 cursors, 7 photo type icons, system logo screens, and eleven whopping big sound files in PCM,44,100 Hz, 8 Bit, Stereo! The official Farscape Macromedia screen saver is also included. There are a lot of cool images in that!

Cons:
The sound files alone make the size of this theme a killer! We're talking about 6,873k worth of uncompressed files. MPEG Layer-3 sound compression would easily bring that size down to about 600k! The BMP wallpaper images in both 1024x768 and 800x600 display sizes are also a little overkill. Most of today's better theme managers convert JPG and BMP images before placing them in the Windows directory anyway. JPG images work just fine but if you insist on including a bitmap, only include one or the other. Most of the cursors are the standard type and there are no web view images included.

Overall:
Needless to say, a little compression is in order. We'll just have to see what we can do about that. :)
