I was already disappointed that Mr. Cawley would no longer be playing Kirk, but now, knowing that Kitumba will be his last is really a bummer. I thought since the yet to be released episodes had been filmed for the most part, that I had several more episodes to look forward to.
"Captain Kirk" only appears in the teaser and tag of "The Protracted Man", and we only filmed one scene with "Kirk" for "Mind-Sifter" - because James was working and had Elvis sideburns. (it was a "torture scene" where his sideburns were able to be covered up by latex and a lot of blood). Truth be told, if James keeps working steadily and he was "Kirk", filming would not take place for Phase II for several years. So it's a catch-22: people who want James to play Kirk would not get any new episodes until 2016 at the earliest. (he's got gigs booked into 2015)

If it's any consolation, I think "Kitumba" was some of his best work - as well as the best work I've seen from Doc John as McCoy. (as well as most of the cast and crew) So, if the script sucks the acting is top notch (and the VFX incredibly beautiful) and he'll go out on a high note!
Ok, thx, I feel better now

And, I gotta go catch one of his shows!

Re: Phase II - Act One of "KITUMBA"

I'm glad to hear that James has lots of work. When the new casinos open upstate, I suspect he'll have even more. That's great news. I am sympathetic, and share the greedy instinct about missing his Kirk, but his generous gifts to the Trek community are overwhelming, and I think we should all just be polite and say, "Thank you."

I never noticed before, but John Kelley is starting to resemble Corin Nemec.

Part 2 is great. I will really miss Cawley as Kirk, but it seems Elvis pays better.

I can live with that as an artistic choice. I might have gone for a brighter look, but making a choice I might not agree with, is different from making mistakes like sloppy edits or cringe-inducing acting.

I thought the basics of shooting, editing and acting were solid enough not to distract from the enjoyment of the story (which I also think is solid)

It's amazing to me how far everyone has come in terms of acting skill since the early days.

It's doesn't look like an artistic choice. It looks like the gamma is all wrong for computer monitors. Maybe they're shooting for TVs, but if so they oughta do a color correction for the majority who view on computers.

If I remember right, they said this isn't final color; so quite possibly we might get the color correction once the whole episode is up.
