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.
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.
Oh, I believe you and Alec. But you said:

"No costumes were donated to the Axanar production."

Not donating the costume is different from not ultimately using those donated costumes. I believe Alec when he says costumes actually were donated by Phase II that ultimately were not used for one reason or another. That's my only point.

I was told no costumes were used from Phase 2 on Axanar, and I assumed that meant that no costumes were donated at all. So my bad on that one...lol... So yeah, they ended up not using any donated costumes in the film. They just used fabric from Mr. Cawley for a couple of the shirts, which look great.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

The trailer for "Prelude to Axanar" should be up for the public soon (like in a week).

Very good effects of the two fleets engaging each other. Multiple classes of ships for both sides of the conflict (looks like five ships types on each side plus a sixth class of super ship under construction. In this case the Klingon D-7 battlecruisers and the Constitution-class USS Enterprise). The acting is also very serious even though it is in a documentary style.

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

I was thinking she looks a lot like Honor Blackman.
I can see both, since Kate Vernon looks like she's from the 1960s in that pic. (Although, Bain never really did it for me, I can see the vague resemblance at a quick glance). I had to take a moment and ask myself: 'Who is that actress?'

Then I recalled: Ah! The actress from Voyager episode - was it called 'Second Skin?' - and from Spike Lee's "Malcolm X!"

Barbara Bain is a funny one. At times she can look rather stunning, while at others, she comes across as someone's mom (which is not to imply that moms cannot be stunning, mind you!).

I think it's the hairstyle in the above picture that creates the Bain vibe.

Color me impressed. Apart from one nit, I actually find myself quite excited to see the actual film when it's complete.

Well done to all involved.
