Starbuggers: From the Logs of Captain Maloney, also referred to as Starbuggers or Starbuggers: A VenturianTale Wiki Original, is an upcoming fan-made movie made with Garry's Mod, similar to VenturianTale's Qeios. The film follows the misadventures of Captain Maloney and the USS Who's Your Mama, who are hired by a time-travelling Cywren Caster to steal a powerful bioship from the Daleks. 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.



Cancelled series[]

The movie was originally developed as the pilot to a series, however due to production difficulties the series was cancelled and the pilot was changed to be a feature.

A number of short stories have been written that expand the storyline of Starbuggers and allude to the path that the series was planned to take. They can be found at

Below is the list of episodes planned. The storyline and the majority of episodes were written by TheLoneClone, whose stories predominantly featured Star Wars characters. Aborted story arcs by ElectricFire 169 are also available, some of which allude to an overarching temporal conflict Cywren is engaged in. ElectricFire 169 started work on a story connecting the story to the end of Another Fallout Tale, entitled Ironclad, however this was never completed.

Behind the Scenes[]

"It's about the crew... Of a giant insect... In space... Why don't we call it Starbuggers?"
―ElectricFire 169[[src]]

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.
