Past Site News - 2002:
DECEMBER 25 2002 -   I'll be away for the next day or two and I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!  Happy Birthday Galaxy Quest! Your three years old today!
DECEMBER 21 2002 -   I've just added the first page of work in progress for the GQ Tech manual!  I'm on vacation the next week, so I'll be posting a lot of updates to the site! 

DECEMBER 8 2002 - 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.

NOVEMBER 2 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.

OCTOBER 15, 2002 - It's been a good week for updates! 

If your a GQ fan, This is definitely one of those very rare "too cool to miss" sites!  If you've ever wanted to build you own GQ shuttle here's a very neat way to do it!

I've started the Technical Manual Project Page, Just an introduction, but there'll be more soon!

OCTOBER  8, 2002 - 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:

1. Add 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 go's 404!
4. Prove conclusively I have way to much free time.
(see: Get a Life)
5. Have fun!

OCTOBER 6, 2002 - 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 Questarian.  

SEPTEMBER 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!

SEPTEMBER 22, 2002 - A new N.S.E.A Uniform Page has been added the the GQ Databank,   Cast Bios' have been updated.

We've received a few e-mail's with bad return addresses, so you haven't received a reply to your message that probably the reason.

After numerous 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!

SEPTEMBER 18, 2002 - 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 or E-Mail.  

SEPTEMBER 10, 2002 - 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 petition!   

Cools stuff page updated.  Everything's back up... hit counter will be back this weekend.

SEPTEMBER 7, 2002 - Some minor site updates.  Because of some technical problems, the forums are down for posting and random header pic's are down till monday.

SEPTEMBER 1, 2002 - Check out the first chapter of Lil_Prancer's "Protector 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.   

AUGUST 24, 2002 - 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!
