Exactly - everyone putting in their resources to produce spectacular films. Look at who's working on stuff like Axanar - Sean Torengau (fan who designed Riker's Titan) Tobias Richter in Germany, Cawley on costumes - some very talented people all coming together to bring audiences very exciting new Star Trek!

If your into continuity (like me) then you've got Hidden Frontier/Intrepid/Dark Armada who have swapped characters as with New Voyages and Farragut; Prescott joining the Enterprise in Phase II; STC Kirk in The Price of Anything -do your research and there is a lot more crossover than you might think!

My favorite is Hatch as a Klingon and I guess my second favorite is the woman from Galactica, but they all look great.

Caught up on the site blog. Tony Todd need say only one line. ONE LINE. And I've got serious goose bumps.

Is it just me, or does Kate Vernon look a lot like Barbara Bain in that pic?

I actually made the costumes that Cawley donated - so it goes even farther

Patty, I spoke with Alec Peters this evening about the costumes. He said that they did not use any Cawley costumes in the production and that all costumes were made from scratch.

No costumes were donated to the Axanar production. Some of them may look similar to the Phase II costumes, but they are all 100% new designs.

I've just gotta say, seeing those massive Kelvin-era ships in a TOS setting pressed all my nerd buttons at once. <3

Well, in andriech's defense, Alec Peters announced that James Cawley donated some pre-made "Cage"-era costumes as well as copious amounts of velour fabric to Alec for use in the Axanar production. I take him at his word.

In the end, it is indeed possible that none of the pre-made costumes donated by James (but actually put together by andriech) ultimately got used in the production.

Productions evolve over time. There was a time when Axanar was going to film on Phase II sets.

It always seemed odd to me that someone who sewed a costume wanted credit on a film.

A costume designer? Sure. But someone who sewed a costume?

Film credits have changed a lot over the decades...Go see Alfred Hitchcock's 1950s films and the end credit sequence takes about 30 seconds to a minute. The average end credits starting in the 80s were often long enough to match with the length of a pop song, say 2 to 3 minutes.
Nowadays, they take over 5 minutes.

Are the films better? debatable...but they do seem to credit anyone and everyone involved in the making of a film...

Alec said that none of the costumes could be used and that both the tunics he and Kate Vernon wore were custom made by the same manufacturer who made the two Admiral tunics. James Cawley's fabric was used, but that is all.
