It's by the same company that published Star Trek:Countdown (IDW)
For one franchise they made a prequel for the other a sequel

I have never watched GQ all the way through, so it wouldn't be right to comment on it. The part I watched, I despised with the white hot passion of 1000 suns. That said, I hope this movie helps Star Trek regain the respect it is deserving of.

It did poorly at the box office cus of poor marketing. Which is probably the main reason for no sequel.
I looked on box office mojo, and to my sadness, GQ was a pretty impressive hit, making almost 100million bucks. There are many comedys that make much less and considered a hit. I wish it had failed miserably, but it seems it did not.

Well I can't say I wish it had failed miserably - it was a spot on comedy that had no malice or ill-intent towards Star Trek.

Galaxy Quest honored Star Trek. I love how the wiki page says it's a parody of Star Trek and other franchises when in fact it parodies only Star Trek. All the good original scifi movies came out in the 90's now all we get are reimagined horse****. As much as I like Iron Man I can't say that there is one true perfectly good movie that has come out after 2000.

You're missing nearly a century of good original scifi movies there, JTK1701 if you're focusing only on the 90's.

I meant to say the last good original scifi. I've seen all kinds of scifi from the 70's to the 90's. That movie with Bruce Dern and the gardens in space I forgot the name, the ending was depressing. Hell even Easy Rider's ending sucked. Same with Vanishing Point. Dead heroes suck live ones rule.

Yeah, it pretty much starts with Metropolis I'd say as far as great movie scifi. They recently released a version of Metropolis with restored footage that was found. Recorded it, haven't watched it yet though.

I like car stuff too so I can't watch every scifi movie. I stick to mostly stuff I grew up with.
