This is the server you've been looking for! We took minecraft and brought it to the space age. Design, build, and fly your very own spaceship to any one of our twelve magnificent custom-generated planets, where you can build your base using incredibly awesome advanced technology! Work your way through our innovative rank structure until you dominate the solar system! With over a hundred possible ranks, you'll get to choose your own path in a way that no other server can offer. Build a faction base, or found a town using our custom towny-factions bridge. On StarQuest, anything is possible and the galaxy is open for you to explore. The best part - there are no client mods required!

StarQuest recently celebrated its 2 year anniversary and launched version 3.0, adding a whole new dimension to gameplay. 3.0 included a full world reset, with 12 fresh brand new planets and a new-and-improved gameplay model. Check out the 3.0 launch trailer!
THE Sacheverell, the content manager of this very forum (he makes the frontpage posts):
Adventure? Excitement? A Jedi craves not these things. BUT I DO! And I found them at Starquest! Be a lone wolf pirate, marauding the galaxy and taking what you want from anyone you can kill! Be a colonist scratching out a living among the stars! Become a colossal Trade Magnate and rule a town and create a trade empire! Band together a scrappy group of pirates and become bounty hunters! The possibilities are endless! With factions, towns, ranks, and multiple planets with beautiful custom landscapes, you can be what you want! And the best thing is, you need zero mods! Just log right in and play! (Though I do recommend the Starquest texture pack, it really does make the game that much more amazing)
Also, a quick word.
This server is extremely unique. Nothing I've played compares and it reminds me of Starbound, which I loved. I'd say try it out, no matter what the circumstance, because it's a brilliant idea brought to life.
Spaceships! Custom designed and built by you, the player!
Ranks! Work your way up through our two-tracked rank structure and unlock new and more powerful classes of starship!
Planets! Explore and colonize 12 incredible custom-generated planet-worlds!
Space Combat! Use our spaceship cannons to have space battles!
Grief/Raid! Attack and raid other peoples' spaceships! Bases can be protected with worldguard, and towns can be protected with Factions or our custom Towny-Factions bridge!
Advanced Machinery! Use new and incredible technology to automate things in your base! Minecraft in the 21st century!
No Client Mods Required! You can connect with a completely standard 1.8 minecraft client. All of the modification is done on the server side, so that you don't have to!
Planet-Specific Resources! No one planet will have everything you need. Trade with players on other planets or visit other planets yourself to get items you want.
Economy! Gather materials and sell them to the merchantmen at spawn to make money to rank up!
Custom Plugins- Over 40 custom plugins work together to make SQ an experience like no other.
And so, so much more!
Server Rules (short version):
don't be an idiot! This really should be the only rule we need!
respect the staff! We're here to help you, but we're not your slaves!
read the tutorials! They're there to help!
don't rage! It's a challenging server, but you can do it! If you get defeated, it's a temporary setback- don't give up! Build your base and ship better and get revenge!
don't spam, ask for free stuff, or ask for ranks! If we want you on staff we'll ask you.
Full rules list is available on our webite!
