Harlan Ellison and his commentary was never meant to be as such. He is a straight-shooter and he speaks his mind. He cuts through the BS and gets right to the point. Better those admirable and direct qualities than just beating around the bush.
I make no judgment on Ellison's qualities one way or the other. I was merely making an observation.

As in an actual observation, not a sideways swipe at someone I dislike.
Oh, I'm all for offending those who deserve it.
I might also add, it doesn't win you many friends, either.

That is equally true for you, too, Expo67.

I do okay in the friends department - and I'm not unhappy with the kind of folks who dislike me, either.

Maybe so. But I don't insult other peoples beliefs. I respect them.

Consider that my final word in the matter.

Leave your personal beefs outside, they have no place in this thread.

Not from where I'm sitting. You've insulted mine.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Even working on it as much as I did, I forget how cool this thing is to look at. Back in 2005 it was exciting as all hell to see the bits coming together. Seeing the teaser and opening credits put together, and the reaction of folks online when that part was released, was just wonderful.

Thanks, Maurice.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

The Savage Empire was the first fanfilm I saw that made me think I could do it. That Making of Savage Empire DVD was like a bible to me when I started work on my own fanfilm. Jimm and Josh were both very supportive towards me when I started out. They didn't have to be, they didn't know me from Adam.

So I've always been grateful to them for inspiring me to try my own hand at this, and I'd still love to work with them one of these days.

Exeter is still the gold standard of the "TOS look". No one else has come close. Others pay it a lot of lip service...

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

While we're all here... I do have a couple of questions. Some of the uniforms are a bit off, a couple are in rough shape, and still others look perfect. I have always wondered what the specifics were. I think I heard that the Doc's uniform was fitted for another actor? Garrovick's wrap around has a texture to it I am unfamiliar with and the braids seem really high up the forearm. Also, the helmsman, his uniform looks like it was just pulled out the laundry bin. Maybe he was late to his duty shift. Of course these a little things, just curiosities really. Given the superb amount of detail and work that went into everything else, this has always stuck in my head. Anyone know? Anyone?
