I'd rather fund an actual game.

Same, but I'd also rather UQM get a real sequel instead of just getting Star Control III Electric Boogaloo so I donated.

I can't help but think letting Zelnik be the OP for all these topics pertaining to the lawsuit is... not putting our best foot forward. He seems a bit overzealous.

(I donated some $$ too)

If it wasn't him it would be some other rabid fan boy. That's why this whole situation makes so little sense.

Step one) Star*ock buys the SC trademark. It's valuable because of the fan base.

Step two) Sink a bunch of money into game development.

Step three) Anger the fan base by threatening UQM's plot resolution.

Step four) You already spent the money on game development and now you've threatened the value of the game's brand by aggravating the fans whose interest is what the brand derives its economic value from.

Star*ock should just dump the SC trademark and find another hook.

For example strike a deal with some e-celeb to star in 'Origins', shill it, and get 15% of gross revenue.

"Pewdiepie's Space Adventure!" Now that would have a bigger installed fan base than Star Control™©®™®© ™©®™® ©™©®™®©™©®™®©™©®™®© does
