Re: Star trek: Continues Fan Series

I enjoyed the episode, but I have to agree that STC really seems to be pushing the hard sell.

Given that it has to be a non-profit fan production I don't see what they can be selling, but they sure act like a high-pressure sales team. I just hope their tactics don't lead to a crackdown.

In what way are they selling?

I saw it on Youtube - didn't cost me a thing!

You're right; they aren't selling anything. However, they seem to be acting like salespeople, which brings up the question of why?

Why are they aggressively pushing good reviews and publicity, while sometimes appearing to disparage the rest of the fan film community?

Those are the kinds of things sales teams usually do. But if you're not selling, why act that way?

People don't understand some of their behavior, so they're trying to figure it out.

Maybe the better term is "aggressively promoting".

Re: Star trek: Continues Fan Series

I thought maybe that they are just trying to keep people's interest until they can get another episode out. Fanning the flames, so to speak.

Re: Star trek: Continues Fan Series

I really enjoyed the first STC episode, "Pilgrim Of Eternity." They recently announced the title of their next episode called "A Lesson In Peace." I don't know if that's a working title or the actual one.

The first episode wasn't perfect, but nothing ever is. Mignona really impressed me overall as Kirk, but I'd rather see Kirk more as he was in 1st and 2nd season, but I understand making him more like 3rd season so as to maintain that sense of continuity and picking up where TOS left off.

I've watched the episode a number of times and noticed other things that slipped by me before and most of that is in a good way. The casting might be a bit hit-and-miss, but they might gel more with each production.

I loved hearing the TOS music again. And I LOVED Doug Drexler's Enterprise model. For me he far surpassed CBS' efforts in TOS-R.

I'm looking forward to the next production. I just wish I could think of a way to contribute besides a donation of support.

Well, on that topic, Vic Mignogna has been talking to people who worked on STC and who are set to work on Star Trek: Axanar and telling them not to work for me. He has been lying as he always does, making up stuff, and those people, since they know me, have all told me what is up.

Vic burned EVERYONE at Star Trek Phase II and Starship Ajax. His reputation is not very good.

I'm on this, Maurice, to keep this thread from becoming all about the frigging behind-the-scenes drama.

I would be grateful if posters would "not go there." (There are better places to go.)

Re: Star trek: Continues Fan Series

They had a story contest and announced the winner with the title of the winning story called "A Lesson In Peace." Now I'm curious as to what the story might be about and if we'll get fed any tidbits.

"A Lesson In Peace" suggests a story of conflict. Klingons or Romulans or something else perhaps?

Doug Drexler did an admirable job with rendering the Enterprise. I'd love to see what he'd do with a Klingon or Romulan ship or even a shuttlecraft. But that's just cosmetic (though still nice to see). I'm really curious as to what will be in the next episode.

Re: Star trek: Continues Fan Series

One of the things that bothers me about Star Trek are the stories about the actors not getting along. I think making a fan-film should be fun. I would like to watch a fan film made by people who had fun and enjoyed working together. Any suggestions?

Definitely. Star Trek: Intrepid. Not only does it look like they have fun but they have a love for Trek for Trek's sake, not for attention or glory. Their last episode had a special guest character we all know and love.
