Sorry, I've been away from the the site for while... the last month, on
top of everything else, I've have system problems and I'm just
getting my machine back up reloaded and working. I have a few
hardware/software repairs to make, as I can afford them, so I still may
be a little hard to get a hold of. To all those that sent
condolences, thank you very much.
The plan for this week is to
put some updates and the submissions to the Tech manual.
2002 - It's been reported on the Forum
Rumor Mill that Tim Allen has mentioned his interest in doing a Galaxy
Quest sequel! See the Rumor
page for more details.
On a personal note, My
father passed away two weeks ago and I've been away from the site, and
will probably be a little slow on update for a while... I've tried to
keep up with the emails as a bit of escape from the sad times my family
are going through right now, so If I've bit slow in replying of I'll
hope you understand.
2002 - It's been a good week for updates!

I couldn't understand the spike in site traffic till, much to my
delight, I found out that we'd made the sci-fi channels "Site
of the Week" list! To all you new faces, thanks for
stopping by! Also the Sci-Fi article didn't get it quite right:
Our primary objective wasn't to outlive the official site....For the
record the site goals are:
to and enrich a non-existent mythos!
2. Provide continuing support to the GQ fan
community (see above).
3. To stick it out long after the official site
4. Prove conclusively I have way to much free
Get a Life)
5. Have fun!

The live page counter's back...lets see how much I've mucked up
the site by adding that! :) Barring, more family
emergencies, I'm going to try to get the Tech manual pages up this
week. The photo gallery's on hold while I test some options.
Also I'm once again thinking about adding a web based chat channel to
29, 2002 -
Whoops! I rebuilt the forums and locked everything down!
Public posts are now open! I've held back the Tech manual and
Gallery pages till next week to when I have a chance to work on them
more. Also, the full cast
listing page has been updated!
- A new N.S.E.A
Uniform Page has been added the the GQ Databank, Cast
Bios' have been updated.
a few e-mail's with bad return addresses, so you haven't received a
reply to your message that probably the reason.
conversations, I'm once again considering the suggestion that we start a
Galaxy Quest Fan Club... As to the suggestion of a monthly newsletter, I
have trouble finding enough things to put on the Questarian over the
course of a year, I can't imagine trying to do that every month :)
Unless A LOT of people come forward to contribute, that option's out.
That being the case, I may just create 25 - 50 free "Charter"
Memberships a month. Which mean you get a very nice lamented card,
a certificate of membership suitable for framing, and should by some
stroke of fortune the Questarian becomes privy to anything special, you
get the first word :) Please remember this is just in the
"what if" stage :) If anyone's interested or has any
suggestions, please email
and let us know.
As there isn't much in the
way of fan groups out here, I've been seriously toying with the
idea of, while always maintaining the Galaxy Quest side, of branching
the Questarian into a general Sci-Fi club/association for Western
Massachusetts & North Western Connecticut. If anyone has any
comments, suggestion, or ideas please >E-Mail
and let us know!
- I've started a Galaxy Quest Rumors
page that's worth checking out :) Also I've decided that the
next big project is going to be "The Galaxy Quest Technical
Manual" Anyone that has any ideas about how GQ technology
might work, what the docking protocols might be, or where the bathrooms
are situated please got to the GQ Forums
- The Questarian has joined in to Save
Farscape! Incase your The SciFi channel has canceled the 5th
season of the Farscape! and If you're a fan of the series I urge
you to join the letter writing campaign and sign the online
Cools stuff page

the forums are down for posting and random header pic's are down till

II: The Aftermath" fanfic!
Because or excessive downloading/external linking, I've
removed the Fraunhofer MPEG
layer-3 Codec from the sound file help page. No further support
for that codec will be offered or given.
- After many problems, the Questarian's moved to it's new hosting
service! I've switched the email back to The Questarian There were a few problems during the switch, so if you sent a message
and didn't get a response, it probably got lost, please send it again.
Currently, the Forum area is down... Not that it's getting all that much
use, but I should have it back up sometime next week.
In September, the Questarian starts another round of new projects!
Hopefully we can get the blueprints to Sarris's ship off the ground. If
anyone has suggestions or ideas, Please let me know!
