Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Thanks Mike. And let's not forget how much luck played into the Battle of Midway. Seriously, we got lucky as well as having brilliant commanders.

Now in a story, that is a tough one to show when you are trying to show how brilliant your commanders are (on both sides).

But great to see another fan of the big Pacific sea battles Mike!

Sure our side was VERY lucky, but the luck wouldn't have mattered without superb leadership and the valor of our sailors and aviators.

On the subject of luck, it's reported that the biggest question Napoleon would ask when someone was being recommended for promotion was "Is he lucky?"

The latest from Tobias RIihetr. The Klingon Space Docks, where the D-7s are being built.

Stunning. Fits perfectly with the wedge profile of the Klingon ships. Gives the impression they build that facility to build a LOT of D7s, which I'm sure they will.

Christian wants a scene like the garden secne in "Midway" where we first meet Yamamato. And yes, Christian and I, both see Klingons as Samurai, the honor warriors. "Midway" is a favorite of both of us and "The Last Samurai" and anything Kurosawa are inspirations.

Alec
Glad to see that someone else remembers "Midway"... I watched that film over and over again as a kid. I remember the scene you are speaking of, and hearing this has me jazzed!

I am writing Act 4 now, which is all the Battle of Axanar. And I did a lot of research, even reading four of the Honor Harrington novels to see how the author described those battles (Basically 18th century navel battles in space). Everything sparks ideas. Not to copy, but in directions to go.
Honor Harrington??? Egads, you're giving this history and sci-fi fan a total nerd overload. I totally, agree - not copying - but just the kind of research you are putting into this film leaves me in awe. I am thrilled to hear what you are doing!

As I have said, I don't want final battle to be one big DS9 style slugfest. I have lots of problems with those battles. So ours needs to be really strategically interesting, while pushing the story forward and helping define our characters.
I think that those final DS9 massive battles are at a time apart... they make logical sense for a massive Federation with a history of some 80000 ships (not that all of them are in commission, mind you!) allied with several other forces. Such a battle would not be feasible for the Federation, any more than a battle like Coral Sea, Midway, or Leyte Gulf would have been feasible for Commodore Dewey.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Yes I agree. Different times. The Federation is about 80 years old at the time of "Axanar". It is 2245. So the Federation is much smaller. Even in TOS we get the sense that Starfleet is a small force.

And many of the same forces we know of historically are at play. Maybe the Klingons see the Federation as a growing threat and that is why they went to war. But they did attack the Federation and this war will determine if the Federation survives.

Christian, Richard Hatch and I have a meeting today to discuss Richard's character, and especially the costuming. We will see new Klingon costumes, and some pretty spectacular stuff for Kharn, our main antagonist (Richard).

I can tell you the hardest part of writing the script has been the Battle of Axanar itself. Just trying to get it right and make it interesting.

Thank you for your support!

Absolutely brilliant looking.

But I'm curious as to why y'all deleted the Kelvin style window viewscreens.

Have to admit that I liked that design element of the bridges from ST XI. There are moments where it really works.
