    Glad you liked the finished product.

    Send me a PM with your donor info and I'll pass it along to Jimm Johnson. I know he's planning to set up something for donors to update their addresses, etc. to get their "Making of" discs.

    There's a lot to like about this production, but in all good faith I can't say it's the best fan production I've ever seen. I like the characters and some of the character interactions. I like how the Exeter is visualized. I like the story. The overall production standard is quite respectable and very TOS like.

    That said I can see myself giving it a 4/5 overall whereas the acting and writing stumble periodically on the order of 3/5.

    Really enjoyed this. Where was it filmed?

    I'd certainly rank it up there with most of the NV/P2 episodes that don't have George Takei.

    B'Fuselek is a fascinatingly quirky character. I'd love to know where that name came from.

    Principle photography was at Austin Studios in Austin Texas, next door to where Idiocracy was being shot. In fact, most of the Exeter carpeting and a lot of the Kongo cargo deck dressing came from Idiocracy. The planet exteriors scenes were shot at Big Bend National Park.

    I never thought to ask where the name came from.

    Did you get a free Mountain Dew drip from the Idiocracy set as well? ;)

    Nope, but a couple of wall pieces we scavenged had some futuristic evolution of the "American Express" logo on them.

    And the cargo bay transporter console was the Starbacks sign from the tilm.

    Oh yeah.

    You'd think SBUX prices would have risen more over the centuries. Those look almost current.

    I don't remember noticing this until re-watching the show a few days ago, but -- at the end, the Exeter is being pummeled by Tholian fire, and Cutty makes a remark about the shields, so we know they're up -- so how does Vandi beam out the prototype, and the hapless Tressaurian?
