Starbuggers: From the Logs of Captain Maloney, also referred to as Starbuggers or Starbuggers: A VenturianTale Wiki Original, is an upcoming fan-made series made with Garry's Mod, similar to VenturianTale's Qeios. The series is planned to include a few episodes, following the adventures of Captain Maloney and the USS Who's Your Mama. It is also the first production made under the VenturianTale Wiki Original banner. Starbuggers is set to be rated PG for scenes of science fiction violence, brief mild language, and scary scenes and/or themes. The series was placed on hold in 2016. Its spiritual successor is the series PIE: West Coast.
Before Starbuggers was created, the series' creator ElectricFire 169 had planned to make a sequel to VenturianTale's Qeios series, titled Qeios: Republik. The series was dropped, however, when no word came back allowing for the approval of a sequel. The script itself for Starbuggers' pilot was originally a fan fiction titled Starship Venturian, written by ElectricFire. The story is based on the VenturianTale Star Trek videos.
