These Are The Voyages Announces Kickstarter Campaign For Volume 3

I haven't read my copies of Season 1 and Season 2 yet, but I signed on for Season 3...

http://trekmovie.com/2014/10/31/thes...rter-campaign/

I'm planning to read through the books alongside my upcoming TOS rewatch.

Wow. I have & have read the first two, and want to read this. But kickstarter? I have to think about that.

Kickstarter is fine with me. The price is a couple of bucks more than I paid for the first books (with shipping). With Kickstarter, you only pay if they get the required number of people to sign up. If they don't reach that goal, then we'll just have to wait for a standard release next year.

I thought the first Kickstarter was for all three volumes.

I just jumped on board as well. I agree with Tarheel. In my case it isn't a hell of a lot more than what I paid to begin with. I'd rather have it sooner than later.

The Kickstarter is simply a way for the books to get printed. Sort of like pre-ordering.

I am in. I have volumes 1 & 2 already.

I only need the third volume, so I signed on for that with a $40 donation, but they have many other levels, some of which get you all three volumes.

Re: These Are The Voyages Announces Kickstarter Campaign For Volume 3

I think he means that they actually already had a Kickstarter and the wording there kind of indicated that it would be for all three books;

All three volumes are written. The first manuscript has been edited and proofed and is being formatted for printing. The second and third volumes are currently undergoing structural editing and we hope to have both available for printing before the end of 2013. But these are highly ambitious book projects and, while Jacobs/Brown has the resources and commitment to bring them to press, the process will take longer than many fans, or the author, would like to wait. That's where the Kickstarter community comes in. We believe wholeheartedly that a $10,000 capital injection will provide us with adequate resources to complete the cover graphics, initiate printing, and conduct a marketing campaign to launch these books in a way that will sustain the process to completion and help Marc realize his dream for Trekkers everywhere.

Re: These Are The Voyages Announces Kickstarter Campaign For Volume 3

Can someone explain how this works?

I was under the impression that we are funding the book? Or is the money going towards the publishing of the book?

Ahhh. I had no idea they had a earlier campaign. I guess those backers are already due their books. Now it looks like Marc is looking for an extra boost to speed up the schedule.

He needs twice as much from the first campaign to get one book out?

Re: These Are The Voyages Announces Kickstarter Campaign For Volume 3

I'm going to leave in the first link with the article, and I'll leave the thread open for you to discuss progress of the campaign and whether you're going to contribute, but the direct links need to go. There's a no soliciting rule here on the BBS, and even if you aren't directly benefiting from the kickstarter, the direct links still constitute soliciting.


Actually I've left in Defcon's links because they're connecting to the previous campaign that is now closed.

Think I'll pass. Book one was sloppily written and didn't look to be all that reflective of what was actually going on.

TrekBBS member Harvey does a far more balanced review of the production of the series based on correspondence and other documents from those involved.

Yup. The problems with TATV are well documented around here and I want no part of helping publish another. I'll take Harvey's blog any day.

Re: These Are The Voyages Announces Kickstarter Campaign For Volume 3

So I am supposed to take the word of a random blogger over the guy who has interviewed every major player in the production of TOS and had access to memos no one else has? Everyone from Gene himself to Robert Justman and Leonard Nimoy have endorsed Marc's efforts.

I am sure his books are not perfect, but taking some blogger's word over Marc's seems a stretch.
