News: Paul Reiche and Fred Ford want to continue the story they started when they created Star Control II — The Ur-Quan Masters. «Happy days and jubilation!» «But wait!» «There is something wrong here... something which makes my sheath retract and my talons ooze.» «Please, Captain, we need your help!»

I've seen lists that put Paul Reiche at an estimated net worth of 19 mil.  While Brad Wardell's is estimated 1.9 million.  Both as of 2018.

Not really. Because even then there are restrictions.  You can't yell fire in a theater.  You can't provoke others to commit a crime. 

You have freedom to say something, but it's not freedom from consequences, legal or otherwise.

It is always cute when people cry "freedom of speech" on the internet.  This is all private property here.  You have as much freedom as the owners or their proxies (such as Death, a Moderator) allow you to have.

Eighth, the alien names were never used to build a brand; they were all internal to the game.  I think the "Ur-Quan" might have been mentioned in small print somewhere on a box, but none of them had any effort put into marketing them or building up such "secondary meaning".
SC2 is literally titled "Star Control II:  The Ur-Quan Masters".  Are you purposely obtuse?

FaP is easier to type on a phone without digging up the ampersand.

In English, it's traditional when you list things to go from syllable order (which isn't involved in the mono-syllabled Fred and Paul) and then alphabetical.  Like Dogar and Kazon, it should be Fred and Paul. 

You have an issue with the English language, that's on you.  I'll continue to write FaP or F&P depending on what I'm typing on.

At this current point in time, it's more likely that FaP will have to give up the IP to cover damages than Stardock would have to give up the Trademark.

Brutal tactic to delay FF and PR's game.
I would've spent money on both, now I'll buy Origins only once GotP is out, by which time I'll get origins on the discount table, or even used...
The game they've had 25 years to work on?

But I'm sure Stardock's lawyers will thank you for this comment.  You're proving the damage that F&P are doing to sales.  You've implied before you intended to buy, but the actions of Paul and Fred have changed that.  You're literally the embodiment of the reason this lawsuit's been brought up.

We won't be confused if they have Precursors in their game.  Honest!

Especially since Precursors are a huge fantasy/sci-fi trope?

You do realize the game specifically mentions the universal translator (when you first meet the Orz), right?
9  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: The Star Control: Origins thread on: March 08, 2018, 05:25:46 am
will there be an option to create your own missions, scenarios or campaigns?

Believe that's the point of the "Origins" multiverse concept.  Everything's canon and nothing is, all at the same time.  So...  That's the plan.

What was the date? 
11  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: NEWS: Ghosts of the Precursors is coming! on: February 28, 2018, 05:50:59 am
Fred and Paul's PR firm doesn't represent the community with their 3-day-old account.

As a quick aside:  Does anyone else find it amusing that Zelnik trashes Stardock by comparing them to Blizzard?  You know...  The same ActivisionBlizzard that are the owners of Toys For Bob and Paul and Fred's bosses?

I think The Orville just had an episode based around this...

While I'm not exactly in favor of the art style that SCO is going for, it works.  As they're also releasing the tools required to create our own universes through their engine, I'll gladly overlook such minor reservations. I know Frogboy is a huge Star Control fan.  I have no doubt he'll do everything in his power to be a responsible steward for the Star Control name.

I wouldn't have purchased Founder status if I thought otherwise.

A bit late but Starships is very casual, Krulle. 

And no, wouldn't really call it similar to SC2.
