My point remains that the main reasons for the time it's taken for this to be completed lay primarily at the feet of the producer, who made the post-production decisions he made for the reasons he made them. He wants it finished a particular way, even when there may have been other ways to complete it.

Ah... so there were NOT other ways to complete it then.
There were plenty of other ways to complete it, but those other options weren't what Jimm Johnson chose.
Once again you miss my point (as in another thread). The only true way to complete an episode is for it to live up to the dreams, expectations, plans and desires of it's producer(s). That means, by your own admission, there is only ONE way to complete this, as you, with your many "options" are not in the category above.

It's like anything else in life. GM designs a car, they may (or may not) take customer input into the process... but when they are past any input stage, the project manager decides how things will be done and what the final design is. At that point, there is one method, and other, non-involved people's "options" are then entirely irrelevant.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

In this case, the only way it's going to be done is the way that satisfies Jimm. That's the way that particular deal is set up. I get frustrated with the delays like everyone else, but there are two ways to go with a fan production: 1) you can tie your post-production to a specific release date, knowing that you might have to cut corners here and there to do it (Blood and Fire PT 2) or 2) you can simply say "screw it" when it comes to any kind of deadlines and make sure everything is as nearly perfect as you can make it before you release it. Jimm and Co. have chosen door #2 and I respect that completely.

I'm directly involved in this process, and have been for six years now. Maurice is right.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

LOL... I remember that video! (And Barbreader, I was totally joking... I will patiently wait forever, if necessary, for Exeter to be finished. It's been perfect so far; I'll gladly wait for the conclusion to meet Jimm's standards.)

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I first saw that video this week, and I was hoping for the opportunity to post it... I admit it. I'm not new to Star Trek, but I'm new to the world of it's legendary fans.

I hope it's not just me, but I enjoyed seeing and hearing the Exeter and its characters discussed for the first time in quite a while. Nice work indeed!

That was very interesting. I hope he's close to the mark about the last act coming out by the end of the year. I agree that what we've seen so far is terrific, and I'll be "fascinated" to see it all come together.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

How many years has this been in production? Were all the scenes filmed at the same time and it's been a matter of editing, etc.? Or have they continued filming now and then all this time, the result being we'll see the characters with noticeable age differences (that have nothing to do with the story) in various scenes?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Principal photography was wrapped up years ago, so it's a matter of putting the finishing touches on the thing.
