Site News - 2004:
DECEMBER 29, 2004 - Well,
Galaxy Quest and the Questarian are celebrating their 5th anniversary!
It's been very quiet around here and I'm hoping to revive things a bit
this coming year. I've got a lot of neat stuff planned for 2005.
One of my new year's resolutions is to dedicate time this year to finish
the tech manual, and the dozen or so other projects I've got half
started around here :)
I apologies to those I
haven't emailed back... Between once again being swamped with spam (I
also apologize to anyone who's email my filtering has eaten) , my car getting
backed over by a garbage truck last month, and the holidays, I haven't
had much time to for the emails.
NOVEMBER 21, 2004 - Some
minor trims and updates. I've removed the Lincoln Enterprises link
from the cool stuff page as they once again appear to be having problems
ironing out their licensing issues. I'll be doing some major site
updates the last week in December. As public participation in the tech
manual died out last summer, and I've been involved with other projects,
sadly I've had to put it on permanent hold.
Sadly, I also have to report
that Western Massachusetts's only annual Sci-Fi convention, United Fan
Con, has fallen on hard time and may not be returning. The recent
convention had the lowest attendance I've seen in 14 years... Blame the
internet. I'll be posting a post mortem review with the site
updates in December.
25, 2004 -
Nothing much new to report. Have updated the site, fixed and
removed some bad links...
25, 2004 - Great news for the
blueprint fans! I've recently come on to some new reference
material on the "ion nebulizer" prop and will starting on a
whole new set of blue prints! If you haven't hear of
it yet, check out the new fan made episode of the Origional Star Trek
2, 2004 - Sorry that it's been a
couple months since the last update, but there's been nothing much new
to report. I'll be working on some updates next week, nothing big.
For better of worst, at this point I'm looking to wrap up the Tech
manual Just after July 4, 2004.
12, 2004 - Minor updates, quite
a few pages go scrambled so I'm going though and fixing them. I
Will be doing more updates this weekend, including some new Fan Pics!
I'm closing out the public
portion of the GQ Technical manual project, progress has been very slow,
and submissions have been extremely sparse. As I have a
couple dozen things to CAD for the Tech Manual, I expect to be
putting up a first draft in a couple months.
Sadly, because I haven't
found a significant source of new reference material in over a year, fan
interest drifting in other directions, and not having found anyone with
the time to collaborate, I've had to suspending work on all new
projects. There should be a few derivative pieces coming out
of work on the Tech Manual, but the Blueprints of Sarris's ship and the
"GQ Retro" project are pretty much dead at this point.
20, 2004 - I've changed the
primary site e-mail address from "GalaxyQuest" to "Galaxy.Quest"
(note that there's now a dot between the words) which I hope that this,
for a little while, will help clear up a lot of the spam that's been coming
in. The old address is still up, but if you use it, there's a
chance that you message may accidentally get missed. If you
preface your subject "GQQ:" (such as "GQQ: What's up
John?") for any address on the site, it will mark the message
as a "Priority Fan Message" and I'm sure to get it!
19, 2004 - Sorry I haven't updated the site in a couple
months but there's really been nothing new to report and I've been busy
with other projects. I apologize to anyone that's email me
in the last couple months and haven't received a reply. I've been receiving
a record amount of spam e-mail (several thousand a week) and have had to
turn up the filtering, which unfortunately causes a some legit email to
get lost. I'll be changing the primary email account slightly in
the next week to help combat the problem so watch the front page for
In other news, a belated
happy 4th birthday to Galaxy Quest and the Questarian!
