Site News - 2003:
I've added the new pics of the Ion
Nebulizer and Vox to the Props
pages. Also I've finally gotten around to adding updates to Lil_Prancers
fanfic. More updates this week :)
Well it's fall again. Sorry for the lack up updates, but I've been
really busy, and it's been another couple slow months so there hasn't
been much new to report. Good news is that I've finaly found decent pics
of the "Ion Nebulizer" GQ hand weapon that I'll be putting up
on the site later this week or this week end. I'll also be
updating the Fandom page with new pic's and fanfic this weekend!
Another Slow month, not much new progress on the tech manual... but the
good news is that we can scratch one more item off our wish
list! Was finally able to find a Galaxy
Quest MIDI file!
Lil Prancer has
sent us chapters 5-8
of her fanfic! I've Also done a update the Cast
It's been going slowly, but the I've put up samples of two of the
additional ships that I've been CADing. Check out the update on the Ships
pages and let me know what you think.
JULY 2, 2003 -
I've had a couple questions come up about the Starcrafts protector model
so for the record:
the best of my knowledge there are currently no licensed model kits,
toys or prop reproduction from Galaxy Quest.
As such any items that are out there are gray market... Which is to
say at very best there's a "gray area" as to the license
status of the item... or in other words there a good chance it a
Questarian is not involved with the creation, production or sales of
the Starcrafts kit... so I don't know when it'll be ready, I can't
help you with problems, and I'm not taking orders.
While it does appear that the Questarian's
Protector blueprints, as well as the URL to the Protector blueprint
project's main page, are being used in Starcrafts instructions (see
photos in Starship
modeler's review), as far as I'm aware, no one
Identifying themselves a "Starcrafts" has talked to us
about a kit, asked permission to use the prints or asked permission
to list the URL of this site as a reference source in their
Questarian is not endorsing the Starcrafts model in any way.
Caveat Emptor - Let the Buyer
the quality of gray market kits vary wildly, I know nothing about
Starcrafts, and I've yet to see the model myself, I can't recommend
it. It will be listed in the "GQ for sale" page at
some point, but for reference purposes only! If I get one I
certainly will review it, or if anybody out there has one, I'd love
to hear what you think about it.

I've update the Protector DWF view page and viewer links. I've got
several of the GQ ship variations CAD'd and I'll have previews of them
in the Tech manual pages soon. I've decided not to get too neurotic
about the page count in the first edition, which time permitting, should
be somewhere around 20-30 pages by fall.
26, 2003 -
Check out the newest submission to the Altered
Reality page! I will be CADing the ship and space station
entries for the technical manual and they should be up late June.
The other big new is that the kit maker Starcrafts will be debuting a 12
1/2" NSEA Protector model at Wonderfest this summer! I'll
have more details here and on the GQ for sale page. Also I'm
working on a new GQ screen saver!

Another slow couple of month rolls by... Not much progress on the
Tech manual. Will be doing some site update over the next
21, 2003 -
Every year around this time I like to encourage people to check out Ren
Kishida's Japanese Galaxy Quest Fan Page. Even if you can't
read Japanese, it's well worth the effort to checking out!
A number of people have
asked why I altered header from webring to fandom homepage... It's been
3 years and the webring is pretty dead (and that's being optimistic :)
so I thought it was time to make a little change in direction.
Nothing new this month...
Very slow going on the Tech manual project. As I have received a
very small number of submissions, I've deiced to pull the public
end of it out and do it myself, otherwise it'll be February 2004 and
I'll still just have 2 pages :)
20 2003 - With
rebuilding my system, AGAIN, (sigh, an unlisted virus ate my partition
tables!) I haven't
had much time this month for updates... not that there's been a lot coming
in :) I've done some minor updates on the cast
bios, including some new headshot of Jonathan
Feyer. The Tech manual is coming along slowly, and I'll be
adding some new items. Also Lil
Prancer has sent us more chapters of her fan fic.
