For historical reasons heres the Starcontrol sequel petition
http://sc2.sourceforge.net/petition/petition.php

On the old Toys for Bob site Paul and Fred used to post about progress with their higher ups , Activision. If i remember rightly they did present the petition to management with many signitures on it, was ignored with Activision saying nope to a new Starcontrol game. There is a bit of history over the years for efforts with getting a new game started, as i understand according to a post on the Stardock forum https://forums.stardock.net/485378/page/1/#3693103 Activision have given the go ahead but basically said to Paul and Fred we wont give you any support. It seems a bit crappy of Activison feels like they've said you can pay for it and do all the hard work, we'll take some profits thanks. Thats big business folks.

Ironically just like Origins its doubtful Stardock could assist Paul and Fredd cause it would break their contracts to Activison. Red tape sucks, but atleast there will after all this time be a true sequel.

A historical chat log regarding the petition and many things can be read here http://uqm.stack.nl/files/chat/tfbchat-20070613-clean

ps so this post doesn't get burried it would be awesome if it was stickied.

A petition is more or less moot. Bob and Paul are making a direct sequel to SC

Which is one of the reasons StarControl:origins is not a 'direct' sequel but a sort of off shoot of the existing universe.

Perhaps i didn't explain that its historical enough. It was an early attempt to get a sequel made. Fred and Paul were involved being contacted by the creators of Ur Quan Masters. This is all long before Starcontrol Origins.

The petition is an important part of the reason why a sequel is now happening. Fred and Paul would of made it years ago if Craptivision didn't own them. Just read the chat log.

Don't worry im not bothered there's likely alot of people on steam discovering Starcontrol for the first time or who dont know alot about the games past and community related things.
