Alex Ness, producer at Toys for Bob, posted on their web site that they have re-acquired all rights to their classic game Star Control! If you have not played Star Control 2, I highly recommend you download and play the awesome open source version, The Ur-Quan Masters.
Toys for Bob is now owned by Activision, and Alex says they are seeking to convince Activision that there is demand for a true sequel to Star Control 2 so Toys for Bob can develop the game. How? By handing them a huge stack of email messages!
