My name is Jon Matthews. I seem to be one of the younger folks here, having playing SC I & II when I was still in elementary. My brother, cousin, and I used to enjoy the melee battles, but I really found the story, races, and humor to be the heart of the series. In adulthood, having played through the Ur-Quan Masters, I can safely affirm it was not simply childhood nostalgia, but well-implemented aspects that came together to make the series great.
Recently having discovered this production, I'm excited and cautious for the progress of the series ahead. SC III felt like it missed its mark to me, and I greatly hope this addition doesn't do the same. Not being able to incorporate existing lore is a large hurdle to manage, but I am hopeful the team here can circumvent that issue in a way that doesn't exclude incorporating original lore when (hopefully soon) Toys for Bob finally comes to permit it. If such steps are made to preserve conflicts with the original lore, I would be happy to become a founding contributor.
I can be found as Immermnemion on Skype. I look forward to getting to know some of you in what I hope is a revival of a great series!
