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.

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.

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

As someone who followed the early progress of TTI on the old EXETER website -- and subsequently gave up on ever seeing it completed -- I was shocked to discover that, not only had it finally been released, but had been up on YT for over a year without my realizing it! Boy do I feel dumb!

In a word: superb. Maurice, I've been reading your thread on the BTS struggles with Act 4, and all I can say is that your work paid off in spades. Act 4 is thrill-packed in all the best ways, and had me on the literal edge of my seat. Great work. This definitely ranks as one of the all-time great TREK fan films.

However, I was a bit bummed that my name wasn't listed in the donor credits. It's been years now, obviously, but I'm pretty positive that, around the time of Act 2 being released, I kicked in some money on the old donation page. I don't really care about the credit, but I was hoping to get one of those DVDs with the making-of feature, to go along with my "Savage Empire" DVD. Oh well.

But anyway: everyone involved with "The Tressaurian Intersection" has MUCH to be proud of. A really fun, fantastic episode.

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

Glad you liked the finished product.

Send me a PM with your donor info and I'll pass it along to Jimm Johnson. I know he's planning to set up something for donors to update their addressed, etc. to get their "Making of" discs.
