At this point, I think there is a very important question you should be asking:
If no one can be bothered to transfer the rights, who then is going to take the time to file a lawsuit?
Think about it: we've already determined at this point that the code base is useless, the game would need a ground-up re-write to start over. So its now a question of "spiritual successor" vs actual sequel/remake. If no one out there is willing to defend the trademark, then what's to stop someone new from re-using the hardwar name and IP?
Hey guys... I posted here long time ago thinking about a rewrite... What about crowd funding... any people here in to game dev... I would be happy to donate portion of my free time to work on rewrite project.

Might just need to plan out/record a bunch of footage, single/multi player/campaign stuff/dogfights/etc then drop it all on youtube at once and slide a kickstarter/gofundme link in there or something. Either use that to try to develop something, or get the attention of one of another developer with a more established company looking for a small project.
Edit: Looks like Hardwar is on GoG's wishlist already. Only 2 votes so far.
