Troels Pleimert (the Space Quest Historian) and I have started a campaign to raise funds to buy the SpaceQuest.Net domain from Frans, the original owner, complete with his new website design to preserve it in the hands of SQ fans! We've been talking to Frans and he shares our desire to see it in the hands of fans. We've already raised over half of the asking price Frans quoted us and we're just looking to secure the remaining amount from any of the nice SQ, Sierra, or just plain adventure game fans out there to get us to the finishing line! We also have a hosting partner all lined up as well (also a hardcore SQ fan). But all the information is in the link below. Anything helps! As the info says, there aren't really any pledge rewards for this campaign but, if you like, we're going to make a new section on the site to house a list in honour of the donors who helped fund this venture in preserving one of the longest running web icons of Space Quest fandom.
If you've got any questions that we haven't answered in the FAQ on the campaign page, just post 'em.
EDIT: We've surpassed the goal in less than 2.5 hrs! Donations are now closed. Thanks to everyone who donated and if you didn't get a chance, thank you for the thought! Space Quest has the best fans!
