Past Site News - 2001:

12/29/2001 - Well, I've talked about it forever, but I've finally got the Surface Scanner Blueprints off to a good start!

12/27/2001 - I've done some updates to the Trivia, bios and cool stuff pages.  If you're a Galaxy Quest fan, check out the The Adventures of Captain Zoom in Outer Space site.  "Captain Zoom" was a 1995 pilot for a series about a 1953 "Captain Video" style sci-fi series actor that get mistaken for a real hero and transported to a distant planet to help battle a evil tyrant... Hmm, that sounds vaguely familiar :)

12/25/2001 - Happy Birthday Galaxy Quest!  It's the second anniversary of GQ's release!  


12/02/2001 - Wow! it's December again and we're approaching Galaxy Quest's and the Questarian's  Second Anniversary!   I'd like to thank everybody's that's emailed over the last year!  So, what's up in 2002?   Well, the blueprints continue... Alan and I continue work on the Protector CAD prints as time permits... I've started a page in the blueprint project on Sarris's Ship The Falcon,  and I hope to continue work on the Shuttle, Ion Nebulizer and Surface Scanner prints.  The "GQ Retro Project" I talked about last September is still in development, unfortunately the resources I was expecting didn't materialize so I had to go back to the drawing board.   In other site news I've added page of Thermian reference pic's in the Databank area.
11/15/2001 - Well, tomorrow's the big day for all you Harry Potter fans!  The film isn't even out yet and the sequel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets has been green lighted!  Some films have all the luck!  :)
11/12/2001 - I've added an "Other Data" area in the databank for pics from United Fancon 11

11/9/2001 - Site was down the last couple days (technical problems)  If you're in the Western Mass / North Western Connecticut area join us at United Fan Con 11!  Look for our fliers on the freebie / info table :)

11/4/2001 - Well I've had enough of the falling leaves java app for one season.:) Since it's been really quiet on the GQ front the last several months I'm been thinking of evolving the Questarian in a number of new directions.  Not to worry, the primary focus of the main site will always be Galaxy Quest fandom.  One of the things I'm considering, if I can drum up enough interest, is branching part of the Questarian into a General Sci-Fi & Fantasy Fan club for Western Massachusetts/New England.  If anyone's interested please contact In a effort to boost site traffic, I've linked The Questarian with a number of additional WebRings!  Check out the WebRing Links Page!

10/30/2001 - Nothing quite like fall in New England!  I've been playing around and testing some java applets :)   Coming up in about a week and a half is United Fan Con 11  If you're in Western Mass Join us!

10/22/2001 - I apologies for the site being down most of the day... Unfortunately my hosting company "forgot" that I renewed my account 2 months ago... Ack!   I'm trying something a bit different with the selector buttons. I've created some new animated mouse over buttons... (The mouse over function in MS FrontPage 2000 sucks!.. Kept crashing in Netscape! so I had to hand code it)..  Will be trying several variations over time.

10/21/2001 - I did some updates to the Props pages... Still needs a lot of work.. and I've added some new references to the Ion Nebulizer Blueprint pages.  Because I'm so hooked on DVD's I'll be starting up a "Sci-Fi & Fantasy" review page... I pulled the "Fan Review" topic from the GQ Forurm page because it, like the rest of the forum, was dead.  If anyone wants to add to the reviews, I'll setup as submit address :) I've set the "GC Comm Channels" button to go directly into the forum area... I'd been toying with setting up a live GQ chat area but the traffic in the forums has been too slow to justify the effort.

10/18/2001 - I'm going start a major revamp of the Galaxy Quest Prop pages this weekend.  WebRing has split off from Yahoo and is once again independent... Which so far that's been a good thing, but only time will tell :) 

10/14/2001 - I'm working on a number of new items,  for a start, I've put up 4 new GQ icons in the multimedia area.  More on the way! 

10/02/2001 - Since last time I've updated the cast Bios and the Cool Stuff page, added a new "To see if there's a pub" wav (pub.wav) and stared making new Galaxy Quest icons including ones similar to those on Brandon's computer in the film... Will post them when I have about a dozen completed.

09/27/2001 - I've been preoccupied with the 9.11 tragedy the last several weeks and   though it was time to try getting back to the some semblance of normal.  I've added a page of 9.11 links and if you interested in using the ribbon, it can be obtained at 

We're very close to releasing the Protector CAD's, perhaps another month and they'll be ready.   I'm going to try working on more GQ graphics, Icons, buttons, and Themes this weekend... and to the gentleman looking for the "Pub" wave, I haven't forgot... I'll be putting that up as well :)   Also, I'm trying to get off my butt and get the Surface Scanner prints started.

09/13/2001 - Our heart felt sympathies and prayers go out to the families and friends of those that have been injured or lost as a result of the acts of terrorism at the World Trade centers and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

09/01/2001 - Some minor hopeful news... DreamWorks has recently renewed registration on the domain for another year! While this doesn't exactly scream sequel, it still encouraging!
