Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Seems pretty straightforward to me. (Spoiler warning!)

The Exeter tangles with some Tressaurians, a reptilian race the Captain encountered many years ago. These nasty lizardfolk have stolen a Tholian device that is capable of shifting objects into another dimension. When Exeter follows the Tholians to their home base, they discover a similar device millions of times more powerful that is using a star for a fuel source. This device is capable of shifting whole sectors of space into another dimension.

And that's where we left off two years ago.

I'm just pointing out the tremendous advantage NV/P2 has in having so many people with real industry credentials and experience working on it. They also have a big advantage in resources, particularly in the FX department having have NEO to do their CG work.
Just to clarify a small point: NEO f/x does fine, fast, impressive CGI effects work. But I don't believe we at New Voyages/Phase II have ever used their services for any of our productions.

What happens to the sector when it's shifted into another dimension?

Partially correct...(and thanks for the kind words)...we DID do the Cow Creek Films opening for one of the released versions of "To Serve All My Days", and I am actually one of the security guards in that episode. I am not sure that episode still exists anywhere, or whether that could be considered part of the production, but that was our contribution.

NV/P2 is one of the few Trek fan projects we have not worked on. Some may be thinking of OGAM where we did the phaser, morphing and eye effects, and WAS filmed on NV stage.

Funny how rumors like that get started...

Great summary! I was going to attempt to answer that question, but when I read your post, Professor Moriarty, I realized there was no point. You explained it very well and in far fewer sentences than I would have used!

Thanks, Dennis. I really appreciate you keeping us informed.

And I'm happy to see that my Sept-October prediction is still in the realm of possibilities!

Did you happen to tell Jimm about our growing campaign of support for his voice to be in Animated Farragut?

Another note: I just watched DS9's "In a Mirror Darkly" episodes. Your Tholian looks pretty good! They sure are a wicked looking alien species!

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Thanks. The Tholian commander, Thokess, is Thomas Sasser's work. The ships are, of course, CG.

Not much of a poly count on a Tholian ship.

Greg is correct. NeoFX, their fine work aside, has not to my knowledge worked on our episodes. Max Rem (Battlestar Galactica fame under a different name), The Dave School, Daren Dochterman and a variety of very talented individuals (Joel, Juve, Pony, Tobias and many others) work on our FX.

Who knows?! Tune in to Act IV this Fall and find out!

We are the only ones who shoot up there. For a while, a couple of the other fan films were shooting a mere one state away from you. If you are that interested, you can of course always do your own research on the subject and see if they still are (shooting... or shooting near you).

My Blog lists the location of most major fan film groups. Although I am in the middle of a major reorganization, the groups are listed in Blog 5 along with the locations I have.

I do not have any in West Virginia.

Blog 62: Star Trek: New Homelands
http://sites.google.com/site/newhomelands//
The home base is Tennessee, USA.


Star Trek: Mirrorverse (He Who Draws the Sword)
Golden Age.
http://st-mirrorverse.com/index.html/
The home base is Dayton, Ohio.


Star Trek: U.S.S. Hathaway
Silver Age
http://www.usshathaway.com//
The home base is Toledo, Ohio.
Star Trek: USS Hathaway Trailor http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_h4eo...eature=related
USS Hathaway NCC 2593 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEifG...eature=related

There may be more in nearby states, as I have not been able to find the location of every fan film group.
