Thank the Ur Quan Gods,

The stardock game is pretty good, so I was hoping for this cloud to be removed from the game.


I never saw this coming. Hooray for adults acting like adults and not evil people who care only about money.

  • Paul and Fred will be changing the name “Ghosts of the Precursors” to something a little less generic.
  • No Dnyarri mental compulsion was needed.

Toys for Bob’s sequel to Star Control II, Free Stars: Children of Infinity, is now on Kickstarter.

And some new name shuffling:

Star Control II → The Ur-Quan Masters → Free Stars: The Ur-Quan Masters
