Re: Exeter "The Tressaurian Intersection" Grading & Discussion Thread

I read on Wikipedia that there will be a third episode of Starship Exeter, but in audio form? Is that the direction of the series, if the series continues?

While I worked on TTI and wrote the 2004 "Atlantis Invaders" script, I have no involvement in this announced project. You'd have to ask Joshua Johnson.

GERMAN subtitles are now added to the YouTube feed. Thank you to Anders Heisser and Sergio G. Molina!!

Correction re the German subtitles. The authors are Anders Heisser, Michael Kuhn and Stephan Mittelstraß.

>>>>> An audio review of TTI <<<<<


The main "review" starts about 15:10 in (I'm trying to link to that spot but it keeps jumping back a bit). You can jump back to the beginning but they talk about a lot of other stuff and take a while to get to the episode (and they get it sooo wrong early on about the history of the production, so ignore that part). But the rest is pretty good.

There was talk about a making of documentary for TTI, I guess similar to the one for Savage Empire...any news on that?

It's made. Joel Sarchet did it. Jimm Johnson is talking to him about getting it buttoned up and out the door.

Well, I certainly appreciated their remarks about the writing - not to mention their conviction that the Exeter was a practical model.

Fooled 'em!

I appreciated that they noted that the editing got better in the latter part of the show, as that's the thing I worked hardest at.

I laughed at the exchange in reference to why Doc never calls B'fuselek by name:
"It could be a case that he can't pronounce his name."
"Maybe. His name is kind of Welsh."

Re: Exeter "The Tressaurian Intersection" Grading & Discussion Thread

Yeah, I liked the "Welsh" thing too.

I also liked that they picked up on the attempt to evoke "Balance Of Terror" at the end...and I think David Weiberg's miniatures fool more people than any other effects in the show.
