GQ Update

12 Years! Happy Birthday!

Posted by Luke Reeves on December 25, 2011 at 10:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Today Marks the 12th anniversary of the theatrical premiere of Galaxy Quest!

Over the past few years the Questarian has tried to put together a Technical Manual for Galaxy Quest; I’ve decided to take up this project. If you would like to help in any way please feel free to contact me with any ideas or suggestions you might have.


Something to remember, we don’t have a whole lot to go on, but we do have something that they didn’t have a few years ago; The Galactopedia from the Blu-Ray edition. I’m currently in the process of documenting that scattered information, so that way we can sift through it easily.


Happy Birthday!


GQ The Next Generation

Posted by Luke Reeves on December 21, 2011 at 9:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Many of you who search the internet for anything Galaxy Quest would have found a blog post from April 6, 2010 about an event held at Wondercon 2010.


This Event was a fictional Panel to give a Retrospective look at the last 30 years of Galaxy Quest. Panel members included Daren Dochterman, Steven Melching, Robert Meyer Burnett, and newly announced “Galaxy Quest: The Next Generation” exec producer Ashley Miller. [1]


If you, like me, happened to be unlucky enough to have missed it, an audience member had recorded a lot of the discussion, the audio isn't the best but it is very funny to watch. [2] They even, have a webpage [4]


I was doing a google search today, when I found the video that they used as a teaser during the convention. While not the best Quality, it was a very pleasant surprise. I might even modify a model sometime. [3]


The whole idea is pretty cool, it brings up my desire for a sequel. ha ha

*NEW* Shuttle Craft Model (coming soon?)

Posted by Luke Reeves on December 19, 2011 at 1:05 AM Comments comments (0)

I received an E-Mail from a modeler over at theRPF that "a modest sized, (about 8" in length or so) buildup of the shuttle from GQ" has been commissioned. This model, as explained, will look just like it did on the planet after landing. So it will have the burn marks on it and it will be in the "Landing Position"


I'm excited and can't wait to see it! Pictures will be available as soon as the test models are finished. And if I get any more information, i'll be sure to let you guy's know first! Perhaps the suns of Warvan are shining upon us!

 


 

"Fun Stuff" Update!

Posted by Luke Reeves on July 10, 2011 at 5:30 AM Comments comments (0)

I've updated the Fun Stuff Page to include the paper models of the Protector, and the Shuttle Craft. These models really do look nice and I enjoyed building them. While the Protector Paper model isn’t the Pegasus Hobbies Model, it has good quality, and it looks like they used actual pictures from the movie to make it.

On the Page I also included a link to a FAQ section from one of the paper model websites that gives some great pointers for making the most out of you Paper Craft models. Here in a bit I will also be adding some more links and Fun Stuff to that page.


Stay Tuned for more Galaxy Quest Awesomeness!

New Documentation Process

Posted by Luke Reeves on July 5, 2011 at 2:05 AM Comments comments (2)

A few days ago I decided it would be a great idea to start arranging Galaxy Quest information. The problem is there are a variety of sources that contradict themselves at times. These sources are as follows;

- Galaxy Quest (Movie, 1999 [All VHS, DVD, and Blu-Ray Versions]) [CC 5]

- Convention Props (Posters, Fliers, Memorabilia, Scripts, Models, Ect., 1999) [CC 4.8]

- Galaxy Quest 20th Anniversary Special (In Universe Documentary 1999) [CC 4.75]

- Galaxy Quest (Novelization Terry Bisson, 1999) [CC 4.5]

- Galaxy Quest (Junior Novelization Ellen Weiss, 1999) [CC 4]

- Galaxy Quest: Global Warming (Comic Book Series, 2009) [CC 3.5]

- Magazines and other 'Second Hand' Sources.


I've decided to judge these items in what I call a "Cannon Creditability" [CC]. When you take Information from a source, it has certain credibility. All Information has to be accurate to the Movie First and Foremost. No Exceptions. This allows us to take information from the novelizations, comic books, documentaries, posters and ect. with out having continuity errors. (Rating Scale 1-5; 5 being most creditable) Level 5 objects can not be discredited.

NOTE: A Low number Doesn't mean it's a bad source, it just shows a bit of distance between the source materials.

When you read the books, comics, or watch the 20th anniversary, a person may give extra details that were not in the movie. We accept these sources as true fact, only if they align with the movie, and easily fit in the storyline, and Galaxy Quest Universe.

2 years ago I created this website so I could help distribute information, photographs, and other resources that i've spent a long, Long, LONG time collecting from auction sites and scouring the web. I've found a lot of cool stuff, but I haven’t put much of it up yet. This seems to be a part of the site i need to work on in the future.

If you believe that one of the CCN's need to change, let me know. I'm open to suggestions.
