No, it doesn't. That's hard work.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I really enjoy the Exeter episodes. I've seen them all on youtube. Is there any way to view higher resolution versions (not necessarily HD, but higher resolution than youtube)? I tried downloading from the Exeter website but it doesn't seem to work.

I'd also like to indicate the desire for having a high-resolution version of TTI. However, I believe I recall reading over on Dennis's old forum (Subspace/United Worlds/etc.) that there were no plans to make TTI available at higher than DVD resolution, or reading words similar to that anyway.

Are older episodes available on DVD? Excuse my ignorance. I'm new here.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

There are only two episodes of Starship Exeter: The Savage Empire and the as yet not fully released The Tressaurian Intersection.

Both films were shot in Standard Definition, ergo hi-def transfers would be merely be upscaling.

Maurice,

I think of Standard Definition as approx. 720 x 480 pixels, which is much better than youtube resolution. Is it possible for me to view Savage Empire or TI in a format better than youtube?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

The plan was (is?) to make the show available at standard def at some time in the future, rather than the 320 x 240 currently online at Youtube and the Exeter website.

The opening series titles for "The Tressaurian Intersection" are in standard def here:

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

The last time I checked, the various completed segments of "The Tressaurian Intersection" were all up (except for the last one, of course) but they did not flow together. Each time one would stop, you had to click on another one to continue on. Is this still the case, and, if so, are there plans to make a continuous presentation once the final segment is completed? (Assuming that it is still coming.)

Well, both eps are made to resemble TV eps, so they have "commercial break" joins.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Just curious ... The Exeter website indicates a 2-hour behind-the-scenes DVD will be sent to anyone who donates more than $25. Is that still true? Is the DVD still available?
