I think what he is saying please discuss ships that are not in the Axanar fleet in another thread. (I could be wrong, often I am and I will be told...lol).

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Howdy.

This looks like an amazing project, and I'll be waiting eagerly, as will many others I'm sure.

I've a question if I may: you mentioned far earlier in the thread that you weren't using the Kelvin design, because its a pure Abrams thing. Since you are using several designs that are also Abramsverse esque - albeit with TOS Nacelles and other details - would it not be possible to modify the Kelvin design slightly? Stick a new nacelle in, get rid of the window viewscreen and call it a refit? That would be a simplified way of describing how the other ship designs were modified, I'm certain, but could not the same principles be applied? Especially if you don't use the actual USS Kelvin.

Other than that, I look forward to this film. Good luck with it. :-)

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

A good question. But we just decided not to get too much into the JJverse. The Kelvin was in the treatment but we changed things a bit. More important that Rabau be in the script, now with a new, bigger ship. He is Garth's friend and plays a major role in the Battle of Axanar.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

It's really a great things you guys are attempting to achieve. I sincerely hope you will. Love all of the TR designs and the whole Axanar fleet shall indeed give a nice pre-TOS impression (with monor exception of those slightly post-TNG Klingon designs -> D5, Raptor... fortunately, the D4 and D6 are bridging the gap more than nicely).

Whoever got quarters with a window must consider him-/herself lucky ) So few of those, even on the saucer rim. Love the round ones though

As for the uniform sketches; as it's pre-TOS gong for TheCage style and department colours would be the best choice. With all the TOS, classic gold-teal-red based fan productions already around the Cage colour theme would be a nice touch. Personally I favor those much more than the established 66-69 series designs (along with the more 'serious' bridge and overal design, but that's just my two cents)

Keep it up, please, and may the Great Bird bless upon your enterprise

Of all the Star Trek fan-films that are in production right now, this is the one that excites me the most. It just keeps looking better and better!

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Right now I am at the Star Trek: Phase II shoot. Yesterday, David Gerrold, the Star Trek legend who wrote The Trouble with Tribbles, and is now the new Star Trek: Phase II Show Runner, asked to read my script for Axanar. Today, he told me in front of the crew that it was a good script and close to being ready for filming. I was shocked and humbled. It is, after all, my first script. Much thanks to Dave Galanter who worked as story editor and John Muenchrath who started with me on this journey by dragging my ass into the Robert McKee screen writing seminar. David went on to give me notes, tell me what he really liked, and said he wants to be on set for the filming this fall. It is starting to get really fun.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

While I'm not going to discourage you from getting what you wish from McKee's methods, I prefer a different hands-on approach for screenwriting. I check out original scripts online, such as ones that survived to screen mostly untouched by the director (Scarface, Basic Instinct for example), and also read scripts that were heavily re-written (Zombieland for one).

Getting insights from established screenwriters is also good: I bought Joe Eszterhas' book which was a personal epiphany and remains a book I reread on a yearly basis. It has many pearls of wisdom inside from amazing writers such as Paddy Chayefsky.

I'm glad you got great praise from Gerrold, and I also am looking forward to your project with great interest...

How great! Production on a few fanfilm projects seem to be picking up, Renegades shoots in the fall too.

And we are about to announce that David Gerrold has joined the "Axanar" team as creative consultant. David is helping get the second draft of the script ready for filming.
