"Ottekvar is just too famous. Whenever I see his face, I think SuperKnight: The Awakening, or Webb Tenger: PeaceBuster, not Baltharog."
―Groz Niclari on Harlan Ottekvar[src]

Groz Niclari, also known by his HoloNet handle "QuasarKing327," was a male fan of the original Quest for Quasar, and hosted the largest fan-run Quest for Quasar infocache. In 13:4, Quest for Quasar fans found out that Myris Pictures was going to produce a Quest for Quasar holofilm, with the actor Harlan Ottekvar portraying the character Lord Baltharog.[1]

Niclari pointed out that Ottekvar was 1.84 meters tall, while Baltharog was 1.89 meters tall, though Baltharog's height was from a source not part of Quest for Quasar's canon. Niclari also claimed that Ottekvar was too famous for the part of Baltharog, referencing Ottekvar's appearances in holofilms SuperKnight: The Awakening and Webb Tenger: PeaceBuster. Niclari collected nearly 1.5 million signatures in a HoloNet petition to have Ottekvar replaced. Niclari's efforts were reported on in the free edition of HoloNet News Vol. 531 51.[1]
