Well, another year (and then some) has gone by since the last update... it's
been that slow... and as one would expect, sadly there's nothing
new to report. A lot has change over the last
couple years... at the end of 2005, DreamWorks was purchased by Paramount, and
the future of Galaxy Quest rest in new hands... and I think it's time
the Questarian took a look at where we're going, and what we plan to do
when we get there. While I'm not looking to end the site for
another couple years at least, I do think it's time I look at new things
I can do with the site, while still keeping with the fandom theme.
What this all means is that we're
going on a hiatus... we're not gone, we'll be around to keep the dust
off, and making sure the roof doesn't cave in, but until business
picks up again we won't be doing any active development on site.
Ok, so it's been a tad longer than usual between
updates... I haven't done anything with the main site in the last 6
months, and sadly there really hasn't been much to miss in the world of
Galaxy Quest fandom. Thank you to everyone
that sent letters of support! Sorry I haven't been able to get back
to you all... Been away from the site.
Well, we're still in the
same boat we were back in January... The forums are dead, Not counting spam
we're averaging a bit less then 1 email a month, and there hasn't been had
any new news to report.
The site's renewal period is
coming up in a couple months, so we will be here for at least another
year, and as I've said before, my goal is to try keeping the site going
for at least another four. The one of the things that got put down
last year that I do hope to finally finish is the
"GQ Technical Manual"
For the mean time, the
Questarian is in idle mode.. We'll I'll be doing some clean up and a few
updates over course of the month, but very little beyond that. Should
things pick up again we'll be back in full gear! If your a fan of
GQ, I really encourage you to participate! write a story, make a
picture, Look for potato chips that resemble Dr. Lazarus... anything at

Galaxy Quest and Questarian.com celebrate their 6th anniversary!
It's been slow the last couple years, fan mail is kind of rare
these days, and updates have been few and far between. A big
thanks to the guys that used the forums over the last year, It's
good to see that there's some life there. Thanks to everyone that
emailed the Questarian in 2005, and I'd like to apologize to everyone I
didn't get to email back... some of it got eaten by spam filters, some I
just never had a chance to respond to. Sorry I haven't been on my own
forums much. I'd like to say I'll be around more this
year... I'd like to say that :) The site will be around for
another year, and I'm hoping to do at least another 4. Ten years
would be a nice run I think :) As we're pretty dead these
day's, and it's depressing to watch the virtual cobwebs form on these
pages, I'm going to be branching the site into other areas this year,
more of general Sci-fi fandom stuff and other interests. The
Questarian is still a dedicated Galaxy Quest Fan site, and if fan interest
picks up (or a sequel appears) we'll shift back into high gear!
But until then, I'll be working on a lot of new content in new
directions in 2006.
