Or maybe we should just let the guy who's taken over the editing job finish it up as his free time permits.

That's crazy talk. We demand it all right now!

(I'm told sarcasm doesn't convey well on the interwebs. That was sarcasm. I'm all in favor of letting them finish when they can. And good luck.)

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I want to see the final act as much as anyone (maybe more as my small efforts show up in that act). But I'm willing to wait patiently.

But while we are waiting, I photoshopped together a couple shots of the shuttlecraft interior under construction for Jimm and Josh a few years back (just for fun).


No shots of it finished though... but it looked great! The mnfx guys did an awesome job on it.

That's all well and good. However, showing snippets to the fans is only going to increase their frustration and impatience ten-fold. And that won't help the situation at all.

I mean, it's rather uncooth, tormenting fans like that. Especially when this final act has been way overdue for some time, and all inquiring fans have gotten is very little to no response at all. Or if they have, all they have gotten is rude answers.

That's almost like poking and prodding a wasps nest. Or worse, like a feline tormenting a mouse(ala Tom and Jerry).

I say quit teasing the fans with snippets and just release it in time for the 45th Anniversary.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Are you serious? Someone undertakes making an episode of a TV show that, had it been made in the 1960s, would have had a budget in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. They do it without any compensation, as a free gift to you and your reply is, "You're uncooth" (sp).

They don't owe you squat. So don't bitch about what you didn't do a thing to earn, haven't done a thing to see come to fruition, and won't pay a dime for once it's done.

I do agree, hence my tongue in cheek post in December about a Letter to Santa...

(I guess I wasn't on the good list)

So how about a hint...

Will I neeed to write a letter to the Easter Bunny?...Uncle Sam?..The Great Pumpkin?..

Aren't you prodding a wasps' nest by asking?

It'll come when it comes. Senator Therin knows all.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

No, I'm just making an inquiry. Maybe in your part of the world people don't exercise that right as much, but in the USA, we do. People are entitled to ask questions. And if people don't like exercising such a freedom, well, that's their decision. Not mine.

It's just a matter of principle. Maybe some would consider it as 'bitchin', but others don't.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Well, Kentucky... in the part of the world where my family comes from (the mountains of Tennessee), if a person "exercises his freedom" as rudely as you've done, it's liable to start a feud. Which I think you've done.

Bottom line is, if they decide to never release another minute of their film, we don't have the slightest room for complaint. What they are doing is a gift, plain and simple. You just don't have any room to complain when a gift isn't what you expected or when it doesn't come when you're expecting it to come. Mainly because your complaints won't accomplish a thing other than stirring up bad blood. Wouldn't it be great if, having read your demanding posts, the folks making Exeter decide it just isn't worth it to finish the thing? That fans are unappreciative, so why bend over backwards for them? Your complaints will have served quite a purpose then, huh?

Poking and prodding a hornet's nest, indeed.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

To some people it's "torment" to see a teaser image, to others they're ready to give up if they don't see any progress. You can't please both camps, frankly.

Me, I'll err on the side of assuring people there is progress being made. In fact, that last tease I posted is a shot that didn't exist until recently, and that shot already looks different from when I posted it.

Pardon me, but an inquiry is the act of asking for information. When was it you did that? I don't see a single interrogative in your recent posts.

It looks good in the show, too.

Oh, I know who you are now.

It'll be released when it's done, and there is nothing you, I or anyone else (bar the editor) can do or say to change that. So I suggest you go get a cup of coffee and relax in whatever safe harbor you call home while we all wait.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

FYI...Tennesee, San Francisco, or whatever your current place of residency is, the feud had started two years past when the delay in ACT IV began. It also started(escalated)when fans made general inquiries and were met with the following responses: Silence, 'When it gets done, it gets done', rude answers, and threads being locked out.

So, realistically speaking, the wasps(not hornet's)nest was already poked and prodded long before I ever made my post.

From what I have seen on other Star Trek BBS, fans have already made their thoughts known on posts such as this. I'm surprised that you haven't critcized them for their posts on this hot-button topic.

The same could be said for the 'bad blood' being stirred.

So, I hardly think that criticizing my post is going to resolve anything.

Oh, and USS Intrepid, your opinion has been duly noted, despite how liberal it is.

Actually, I drink English Tea. Preferably Earl Grey or English Breakfast. But, I thank you for the offer.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Seems to me you're the one who keeps stirring it Expo (or whatever you're calling yourself today). I'd suggest you simply let it go and move on, but it seems you enjoy the stirring too much.

I'm afraid I have no intention of rising to the bait though. So I shall simply wish you a good day. Enjoy your tea.
