Everyone may also know that Kail Tescar, my associate producer on these episodes, is the webmaster of one of the largest Animated Star Trek sites on the net...Startrekanimated.com
. One of the reasons I asked him to become involved was his ability to capture the essence of the Farragut crew in animated format. He has actually had this service available on his web site for a long time, and I thought I would promote it for him.
Check out this 'commercial' for his web site: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMm_89REvPQ
We will be putting this as a special feature on the DVD when it is released, but I thought I would share it here.
If you have a few extra bucks, check out his web site and get an animated portrait of yourself. All sales go to Kail...not me, Farragut, or anyone else.
One of the biggest events we've had in our Washington, D.C., area club was inviting an artist to do caricatures of us as our Trek selves. I was in the Trek II-VI captain's uniform, and we had a few Klingons and Bajorans as well. It cost more than $150, but when you count in how many drawings he did, it was a bargain and fun to boot.
If you want to see them, go to www.usschesapeake.org
website and click on the button about caricatures.
We were also lucky in that the artist was a huge Trek fan, and he offered to come back and either a new drawing or color in the ones he'd done in black and white. Of course, we had to pay him to visit again, but it was a great success.
Just something to keep in mind while you're at the county fairs and see someone who does nice drawings. The worst they can do is say "No."
