I am a fairly recent fan of Star Control. I got into it during September of 2002¹, when I found ROM of SC1 for Genesis (shhh). I considered it to be one of the best games I'd played for that platform, though I have been unsuccessful at locating a real cartridge. For that matter, I also need to get my Genesis fixed.
Anyway, I was surfing the net one day for more information on star control and I kept seeing references to Star Control 2. "So what," I thought to myself, "it looks like there are just a couple of new ships." How wrong I was! A year later I wound up at the Ur-Quan Masters website, and started downloading what was to become my favorite game of all time.
I've always wanted to find a way to contribute to the UQM project, but since my programming skills are rudimentary at best, I couldn't think of a way to help out. The opportunity arose with the creation of the Ultronomicon, and I decided that I would do my part for UQM by contributing to its wiki.
I go by Halleck on the UQM and TW forums. I also signed on as a dialogue writer for the TimeWarp: Legacies project, which seems to be getting back on its feet again after a long period of inactivity.
My spelling is a bit lacking. I have a decent grasp of Wiki Markup. I'd say I have a fair command of the English language, and on a few rare occasions I may even have a creative flair². I can now spell M-m-r-n-m-h-r-m thanks to My Moron May Harm (see my Talk Page).
-=Quote Box=- <@Meep-Eep> Btw, congratulations on finishing the Disney skating game. Anything you could say about your next project? <wimbli> Our next game will give us a bit more game-design freedom, but it is still a licensed product. We haven't given up hope of doing some original games someday, but publishers are just so unimaginative. <eotus> The next game will have some fish in it I' <eotus> I'm betting. <wimbli> As you can see, Erol gets really excited by fish. <fwiffo> Note that, as part of Erol's contributions to Disney Skate, the game features fresh fruit in many scenarios. <eotus> can hardly type when I think of fish
Since their next game (Madagascar) is about animals, and even penguins I hear, Erol may get his piscine fantasies fufilled after all.

Here's a good place to plug Vega Strike, a cool GPL space game.
¹Coincidentally, about a month after the UQM project started.
²Guaranteed to occur on some part of the Ultronomicon, at some point in the future.
