Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I donated $50, and I've absolutely no axe to grind. Which is also why I don't get the attitude from people who *didn't* donate.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I'll be happy to see it when it comes out and be grateful for the effort for all involved.

I do appreciate that Maurice has taken it on himself to not only finish the project, but to let us know where it stands. I am sorry that he's had to take abuse from overzealous fans because of it. This is a big project and it's a lot of work, but I guess some people just want it now, now, now, now!

That argument makes no sense when it's been 5, 6, 7 years since the release of Act 3. Act 4 is in "Duke Nukem Forever" territory.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Being that this project is also coming to you for free, I'd say that doesn't really matter much.

We live in a world obsessed with instant-gratification. And while yes, it's unfortunate that it's taken several years for this project to be completed, the fact of the matter is none of us really are owed anything. None of us have the right to be so entitled and haughty about the delay, and none of us should be reacting so negatively to this.

It'll be released when it's ready. That's really all there is to say about it. The fact that Maurice and Dennis have given up on posting updates due to the excessively negative reaction they get when they do bother to offer any official information (as seen in this very thread) is shameful. Some people need to just grow the fuck up.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Just wondering ... is the Starship Exeter: Behind the Scenes DVD still available? I'd love to see it, but I assume it's no longer available.

This post shows exactly why they've quit posting updates.

Well, if the editing is starting over from scratch, then we now have a whole new episode to look forward to, don't we?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Captain Garrovick decided to join the Tressaurians and gave them the space making device in return for help in defeating the Tholians. For that they gave him the keys to Tressauria and made an honory mayor of his own town. Am I close?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Is it Act IV that is in re-edit or the entire episode?

How many of us even remember what happened in the existing parts?
I haven't even seen the existing parts after the teaser. I saw the teaser and promised myself -- excitedly rocking back and forth in my chair, "I'll wait a few weeks until the rest is released, then watch the whole episode in one sitting!"

Sometimes I really hate keeping my promises.

It's Act 4, yes. As has been discussed in the past, the real problem act was Act 3, and in fixing it the opening pages of Act 4 became the end of Act 3. This caused some problems that I won't get into, but in short the truncated Act 4 didn't play well. So I junked the previous edit, went back to the script, reviewed all the unused footage to see what we had to work with, and started rebuilding.

A few people have seen the first 5 minutes of the act and the consensus seems to be it's a big improvement over the earlier cuts, so hopefully it's finally on the right track.
