The original VGA Planets game was written by Tim Wisseman of the Tim Continuum way back in the BBS era.
This current incarnation, Planets.nu, was based on the original game and was written for modern computers by the enigmatic leader of the Galactic Senate, Joshua.
Our chief technical and customer support representative is Big Beefer, who started working full-time at Planets.nu in March 24, 2015, and is famed for his many contributions to the game through add-ons.

As always, thanks are due to the creators of any original sci-fi content that we shamelessly lampoon here in the game. We would especially like to thank Mikhail Gorbachev and H. Ross Perot for being such good sports, but we love you all for having enriched our lives.
Please note: This page is a long way from being a complete acknowledgement for every contribution; such a page would be a good A.U. in length. If you'd like to be mentioned here, let us know; if we missed you, we're sorry.
