Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

So, Act IV should be out sometime in 2014.

Blame Dennis.

OK, enough of this crap. Next one stupid enough to continue this will pull a warning.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

^^^Thanks, T'Bonz.

I post updates here so people will know when there is progress, but I'm frankly tired of the way this keeps veering off-topic, so much so that I think I'm going to stop posting on this subject. When it's done, it'll be done, and that's when people will find out.

DS9Sega... People will be grateful for it when it's done, and grumpy about it no matter what you do before then.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

DS9Sega, it's just that Exeter has really captured our interest and attention. Even when we're not talking about Exeter here, that's why we're posting in this thread ... to keep it active. Every time I see a new posts icon on it, I hold my breath and click -- hoping to see an Act IV announcement.

In the absence of that, your behind-the-scenes and still frame teases are like water in the desert; rare and essential. What you have here, for better or for worse, is fandom. We love your work, are eager to be tossed any tidbits you can spare, and in the absence of any of that, sit around singing filksongs and swapping jokes. This thread? It's sort of a place.

Agreed; I think that I'll do the same.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

anyone who saw the closeup/fadeout on Eli at the conclusion of Stargate SGU knows well that there are many many unfinished things out there, and they may well remain unfinished. i'm a little ticked at syfy about SGU, but what exists of that show is very fine in my opinion.

same for Exeter TTI. if it is NEVER finished, i'll still feel that i have been privileged to see the most sublimely excellent piece of fan-generated tribute to a series that has ever been produced by anyone anywhere anytime.

have a great holiday weekend. even if you never finish it, your work is appreciated.

But..it still won't stop me from hoping that it'll be released from the "can".

perhaps all one needs is the following..

They keep what they do really simple, and they do it well.

I tried Fuddruckers in Silver Spring again this afternoon and had a better experience than my last - I just ordered a basic burger with bleu cheese on it, and it was fine.

I dislike not being able to get a smaller burger than 1/3 pound, though - time was when a so-called "quarter pounder" was considered a large sandwich. On the rare occasions that I do a fast food stop at McDonalds I go for the basic $1.00 cheeseburger - at my age, consuming a ridiculous amount of ground beef at a sitting is too much an invitation to fat and cholesterol problems. When I choose to overindulge I'll go for steak, thanks.

Nowhere that I'm aware of in this part of the country can you get a slice of avocado on a burger. Guacamole, yeah, but that's not the same thing at all.
Dennis,
Your choice of overindulgenge is right after my heart. Mesquite grilled well done Ribeyes and loaded baked potatos are bread and butter for emotional fuzzy's. I'm glad you liked your recent trip to Fudd's. When we were on our mini vacation last week we got to try Smash Burger across form Fudd's in Tulsa. Thought it was okay, but loved their signature fries. The ones with Tyme and Rosemary. One of the better fries I've tried in a long time. I've noticed recently there's a lot of Glacamole burgers springing up on people's menus out here. Maybe if there is a Sonic near you they might satisfy that craving. I think I saw on one their menu recently.

Just saw this on Facebook. It looks like the 5 Guys in Moore that we ate at took at hit....someone drove through the front window....

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

So, anything more done on this, or is a certain someone still blocking progress?

You know, when I fucking tell people to stop being personal, I mean it. So have your warning.

Anyone else feel like seeing if I meant what I said?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I have a question, perhaps somewhat off topic but still related to Exeter:

Back in the "old" days (i.e. 2005-2008ish), over at the Exeter message boards Dennis ran along with Polaris, there were several sidebar stories in development by the locals to go along with the Exeter "series" mythology. I think, if I recall correctly, Robert Simmons you were working on one, and there were a few others being composed as well.

Is anything developing with these stories, or are they kaput?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I was working on 12 but only finished up through 7 and started on the 8th one. Those storys were migrated to a new site in 2009 and development continued on some. Those that i wrote have been put on hold due to my commitments to Ajax. Others have been still writing new material. There have been offers to host a Ajax site by different people. And it is my intention to migrate all that material to any new Ajax site to perpetuate the material so it won't be lost. Having too many eggs in one basket is asking for trouble if one or more sites close. I would like to see my stories produced, but I seriously doubt if Jimm and Josh can't even do theirs first, that they would be doing mine either. But i hope to jumpstart them in teeing everything up they need to do more Exeter. But even if I succeeded in getting everything in place for them to do more Exeter, they have to want to. And that is the ultimate deciding factor. I want them to.
