Send in Your Pics for Star Control IV?

Posted by | August 6, 2008

“As part of my multipronged strategy to convince Activision to insist that our next project be a Star Control one, I have come up with [an] idea to harness the powers of arts and crafts as well as fans everywhere.

What I want to do is this: Make a giant map of the Earth. Maybe I should just buy one. I’m not a map maker. If I were, I’d probably be instantly fired for my alternative spelling of the nation known as Uruguay as well as the fabrication of non-existent countries like Nutsack Kingdom and Nutsack Kingdom II. As a matter of fact, I have already been fired from previous jobs for these exact same reasons, even though none of those jobs involved making a map…

Phase two is where I once again, ask you wonderful community of fans for support. What I want is to put pictures of you guys up on this map. Not everybody but at least one from every country. This may be a problem for the magical isle of Greenland but who knows? There couldn’t be all that much to do in Greenland, especially if you’re unemployed like Andre the Giant’s character in the Princess Bride used to be, so maybe someone who lives there has played a little Star Control. Anyway, what I’ll do then is post your picture up over the respective country you live in. The idea being to show the fan base all over the globe. Will this help convince Activision to let us do another Star Control? I can’t predict the future but I can tell you that if it’s big and displayed prominently, it will help remind them every time they come to visit and be a real conversation piece.”

Since we can never take these guys seriously, I don’t know if this is true or not. But send ’em in!

Dig up your Ur-Quan and Spathi suits and snap some pics!
