Star Control lawfight settled by bees

quote [ Bees have intervened to amicably settle the legal dispute over rights to the Star Control series of sci-fi explore-o-RPGs. After finding common ground in a love of bees, Star Control creators Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III have hashed out a deal with Star Control: Origins developers Stardock that all parties say is nice and good and fine. ]

Totally forgot about this other bee-related article. That won't calm the wrath of the interrupted bee-streakers, right? Sorry.

But look, they settled this hefty brand dispute going on for years simply by calling each other.

I feel like I kind of get it. The guy from stardock is an ultimate fanboy with a good heart, but I’d be wary of Q&A after star control 3, and there’s some awful fanfic out there.

But really having two games kind of solves that issue. And it’s nice that they can both move forward.

The original story guys are focusing on the background story/lore (ghosts of the precursors) and the star dock guy is making one about the future(starcontol origins). Or something like that.
