Re: STAR TREK CONTINUES — NEW FAN FILM WEB SERIES

His birth certificate says he's 54. Anyone can put info on IMDb so someone made an error, apparently.

I would ask Vic himself what years those films were made: he's quite open to talking to people on FB and the like.

Shatner was 35 when Trek premiered and 34 when he shot WNMHGB. That's not exactly "pushing 40." Kirk's age was only mentioned in The Deadly Years, and he could quite well have screwed that information up like he did "Gamma Hydra II." Even if he didn't, it was still only a 2 year difference.

Play on, fellas.

Hopefully, they will have an episode involving a robot of some type so that Grant Imahara can build them something really nifty.

I stand corrected. For some reason, I thought he was 38 at the time of TOS. I should've double checked my math with his birthdate. My bad. Thanks for the 411!

Re: STAR TREK CONTINUES — NEW FAN FILM WEB SERIES

I just sent Vic a friend request on Facebook. I'm guessing he'll ignore me. He'll think, "who the heck is this?" ... unless he thinks in more colorful language. Anyway, I'm not hopeful, but on the advice of folk here, I'm trying to contact him directly about these early films.

There's also contact information on his webpage. You could also try contacting him through the folks at Farragut Films, listed in the first post.

Having made a living tracking people down for news articles I've worked on, it's relatively easy to contact someone if you put in a little leg work and are persistant.

I'm wondering what bizaare chain of events would have resulted in you seeing Vic's birth certificate.

And is this the one that says he was born in Kenya?

No problemo. For a moment, I thought "does that mean I'm pushing 50?!"

Eh, he's a guy. Put a hot picture up as your profile photo and you're in.

Sadly, I have never been hot, and I'm bad at both lies and photoshop. Thankfully, I have had a very friendly turtle for 52 years, who doesn't mind spending time with me. He's in it for the cherries. Also, the broccoli and guppies.

If somebody here knows Vic, and can explain to him that I am the self-appointed indexer of Star Trek Fan Filmdom, that would be great. He can think of talking to me like talking to somebody who is doing an encyclopedia entry on him. He wants the entry to be correct, right? I don't think anyone here feels that I have 'stalked' them. I get my information and move on to my next missing data. (Yes, small D. This isn't TNG).

Sometimes ignorance is bliss!

On a side note...if Kirk was 34 in the first season and we assume every year in the series is a year in their life (which is a silly assumption...but go with me here) than during our Phase 2 series Kirk would be 37-38

I have already bookmarked the website and liked the Facebook page. I am looking forward to seeing their efforts.
