Stardock says they have their eye on the Star Control IP. I love Stardock and everything, but unless Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III are involved, it is not going to be Star Control: it is going to be Star Control 3. The article mentions their studio, but it's not clear on their potential involvement.

"Don't go off and say, 'I have my own artistic vision.' Okay, good -- so call it something else. Don't ride the coattails of the people who came before you to launch your own artistic vision."

I couldn't have said it better myself. Why is it that they want to make a sequel to someone else's game again?

Egh... I have mixed feelings about Stardock. The content (graphics, style, feel, etc) in both GalCiv2 and SoaSE were both great, but the gameplay just felt less enriching as compared with Moo1 and 2, or even some of the Space Empire series, and both really lacked replayability for me. But I'm at least interested to see what they do.
