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.

Farragut is one that comes to mind, which from their FAQ: "The project headquarters is located in the Greater Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area"

That since seems to have changed recently to Cincinnati (at least for filming) or elsewhere. But during the time frame in question, they were nearby.

Although they have refused to give their location, Star Trek: Requirius is also seeking help. http://strequirius.wetpaint.com/

I got the tour of the "Farragut headquarters" last night. I wanted to move into the basement.

What? You didn't offer them a teleplay? How about a spin-off called "The Tressaurian Interstate"?

But I thought Farragut moved to a studio in St. Mary's, Georgia. So, Dennis, were you in Georgia or DC? Or were you at a Farragut producer's home in DC and used his transporter to visit the Bridge of Farragut in Georgia? Can you tell us more? Did you pitch a story? Your script for Exeter's "The Tressaurian" is AMAZING! I really find it to be a true-to-the-original-series kind of story. (Note my attempt to get us back on topic, while asking for more info about Farragut!)

I'm sure your friends at Exeter will be jealous when you tell them that Broughton has a working transporter in his basement! (Note my second attempt to get us back on the topic of Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?)

I'd be more intereseted in moving onto the Bridge than into the basement.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Thanks for the kind words, all.

Farragut's studio is in Georgia, but the braintrust and all the cast and crew are still in the DC area. The producer lives about three miles up the highway (Georgia Avenue, interestingly enough) from my front door.

I may be doing some stuff with Farragut over the next several months, but not writing. Polaris is consuming more and more of my free time and that will just accelerate through the end of this year.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

CaptainKen...

The difficulty of getting back to the subject of Exeter is, of course, that the folks producing
(12) Starship Exeter
have left their fans waiting with baited breath.

Their work is brilliant. But I was not surprised that the only word out was that the end of the 2nd episode (movie?) will definitely NOT be out in the next two months. For some reason, people read between the lines to say it would be out in three. Which is not what I understand, "not in two months" to mean. Whenever they get it out, it will, without doubt, be brilliant and wonderful to watch. Folks just have to be grateful that they take to time to do this.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

BTW, Barb, I really appreciate your reviews of the Exeter shows. Observations like yours and CaptainKen's encourage some of us to feel that what we intended to create does come across somewhat as we'd hoped; that the audience "gets it (no patronization intended, IMAO when the audience doesn't get popular entertainment it's way more often the failure of the creators than any viewers.).

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Dennis, my reviews have no element of charity. I enjoyed your work more that Star Trek XI, and to say otherwise would simply be a lie. I admit to being a lot less impressed by expensive production values than many people. But your production values are good enough that anyone objecting is just focused on the fact that you don't have a mult-million dollar budget. As the daughter of an electrical engineer, a member of both the American Museum of National History and PBS, and a fan of real science lectures, I know that real science usually looks more like your Trek than like JJA's Trek. That means the element of suspension of disbelief is better in your stuff than on his. Your Trek also has real ideas in it, while his is not merely lacking in ideas, it's cartoonish.

The primary purpose of my blog is to help the mild uncostumed, non-convention-going Trek fan find Fan Films like yours, and encourage them to realize that there are better fan films than those produced by a few kids in their basement. At the same time, if, in listing every Fan Film I can find, I help those who are seriously into Trek find films they would have missed... that's a good thing, too.

I thought when I started Star Trek Reviewed that by now I'd have located, watched and reviewed all the fan films, and I'd be starting on the audio productions. Instead, I am still finding new films almost every day, and have eliminated any hope of ever getting to the audio productions. The Fan Film world is far larger than I had imagined.

I believe you mean bated, as in diminished or moderated, not baited as in tease, harass, lure, entice, or entrap.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Dennis, why was that conference room scene deleted where he describes being unlucky enough to be born in a romantic age. That was beautiful. Was it the acting?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

The conference room scene was overly long, much of the dialogue was verbose and overwritten, and there were issues of unintentional borrowing from another source which I refuse to discuss here but were of primary concern to me when I understood what they were and how they happened. I think a little bit of everything went wrong with the scene on the stage as well, and in the end the way that it was originally written and edited together just wasn't usable let alone nearly good enough for the show. Jimm has a real good sense of this kind of thing, and he along with several others worked and reedited and reshot and god-knows-what all quite a number of times before they could make it work at all.

It was probably the biggest hurdle Exeter has had to overcome to get this episode finished, and it sure was not my proudest moment as a writer.

Moving on, now.

No harm done....I have purposely kept what we are doing quiet per a request from the Exeter team...we want the end to be a surprise.

As for Jimm in the animated episode (even as a voice), I will certainly ask.
You are a perfect promoter! Wow! Are you ever building the suspense for me! I really, really, really can't wait to see Act 4 of Exeter!

Please persuade Jimm to do that voice-over! That would be really cool. Why use an unknown Captain/voice/ship, when Captain Garrovick is available? Seriously, even if they only produce those 2 episodes, every serious Trek fan really should see them. It's a new ship, but Exeter has the look and feel of TOS! It would be really cool to hear Garrovick (maybe see him?) in Animated Farragut. This is an awesome idea, Michael!
We fans just love this crossover kind of stuff. My own theory is that it helps to promote a sense of continuity, it helps to create the universe of Trek; if the series interact with each other (even a little) it shows they're all part of something bigger, something Roddenberry called "Star Trek."

Any word on this idea of recruiting Jimm Johnson for the voiced line, Michael? I really hope you're able to include Jimm / Capt. Garrovick in Animated Farragut. It's a WIN-WIN-WIN for everyone involved. I know you said it would be a voice-only part, but it sure would be cool to have a quick clip of the Exeter and then of Garrovick in his chair, speaking that line that you said was available. I'll even let you delay the release date by another 2 weeks to make that happen.

You've been a little quiet lately, Michael. Hard at work? Or sneaking in a vacation? My son and I talk regularly about seeing the rest of the "Power Source." I think this means he liked it, VERY MUCH! The last couple times we've talked about watching Star Trek, he's been asking to see the one with Capt. Carter! More power to you,
Ken

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Just working hard on the ending of Power Source, and beginning the next episode (including just completing a trailer for the next episode...which will be released within a couple weeks after Power Source is released...probably for DragonCon).

As for Jimm, no word yet, but was just completing some of the last scenes in Exeter today, so that was on my mind, ironically. I will see if I can get hold of him this week as I assume ADR is needed for Act 4...so it would be a simple matter of him recording an extra line. However, he will not be seen on screen if he does do the line...just the line

I am glad we are starting to get a fan-base for these episodes.

I have a bunch of Garrovick artwork from the comic already. Just throwing that out there.
