Imo you shouldn't post his e-mail address here in public. Note that the email address on TfB is a bitmap graphic, and not text. Perhaps link to that graphic instead (if that's possible).


I think that meep-eep knows what he's doing.

Okay, I removed it from my post.

Actually, I was thinking "if it's there once, adding it once more on the same page is not going to make things worse". But now Deus_Siddis has removed his, I've removed mine too.

The address on toysforbob.com is probably just text, but it's inside flash.

GameSpot has picked up on this on their "Rumour Control" page. Smiley

Ive sent off an email and I will also be drafting a hand written letter,  nothing too elaborate but just a little note they can use as proof that there is plenty of interest in a true sequel.

SC3 was crappy but if TFB would come out with a sequel I would buy too. Waited too many years for one. Heck, it was SC2 that made me interested in SciFi games.

I'm rooting for TfB, If it's succesful, they could fund for a MMORPG for Star Control!

Oh god, anything but that! Even "Barbie Fashion Designer - Star Control Edition" would be better.

Good to hear I'm not the only one who doesn't live for MMORPGs.

I think a much better genre would be an Action/Strategy/RPG hybrid. But, as many have said, the original creators should use their best judgement over anyone else's.

Whoops, I forgot, I hate MMORPGs aswell...

If there was an online game made, it shouldn't have leveling, we should be able to land on planets and walk around, maybe even participate in Wars, Counter Strike Source Style, with all the guns, etc...

Clonking around with an ORZ would be great.

I hope this goes well, fondest regards to TfB, good luck with this!

I'm locking this post so that we can have one official thread.
