Hickman spoke to us at an indie night a little over a year ago, and told us that he and Garriott were old friends. Apparently, Garriott was trying to figure out what he was going to DO in space during the week, and Hickman suggested he make a movie. Garriott took him up on it, and asked him to write the screenplay.
So apparently, though it has been screened to only a few people (Hickman said he'd try and get a copy if we invite him back for a return visit at indie night), he and Garriott are responsible for the first sci-fi movie ever filmed ON LOCATION in Space.
Anyway, I can't see this being anything but good news for the project. Hickman was about game design before he became a writer, so he won't run into the problem many other writers do when struggling with interactivity "interfering" with their story…
