    OK, the next (censored) who goes off-topic will get a warning. The thread is for Starship Exeter-related stuff only.

    Thanks for bringing us back up, T'Bonz!

    DS9Sega, any idea when we can hope to see some behind-the-scenes stuff?

    Well, the quality is the point. As I've said before, there have been a number of versions of Act 4, but they didn't deliver the goods the way anyone really wanted. Compromises were made that initially caused some material to be cut, but as I worked my way through all the elements I realized the cut stuff could be put back in. This did mean digging through a lot of elements looking for all the pieces, and in that process realizing that we had enough effects elements to actually put together more effects shots than originally planned, which gave me some extra options.

    Another question that I have asked on the old Polaris boards; is there anything those still following Exeter can do to help?

    Same answer as always: beyond being patient, not really anything.

    Thanks to DS9Sega's updates, being patient is just a little bit easier!

    Yep! I've been enjoying the stills. I pour over them like I used to with photos from The Making of Star Trek.

    That had to have been quite a task. How many elements did you have to go through to locate the required SFX footage?

    In other words, more and better show at no extra cost? Bring it on, please. :D

    The way this should work is I get Jimm Johnson to give me feedback on my edits and make changes as needed. Then, when that's done, the sound work has to be finished, including mixing, sound effects and then music.

    I can't speak to any future productions. I'm actually not interested in playing in someone else's universe, unless it's an original production like Polaris. I'm helping finish Exeter because some of the people who worked on it are friends of mine who want to see it done, and I want to help them get there.

    Senator Therin of the Andorian Planetary Council says that he'll do a strip tease while you wait, if you like, but you'd probably rather it, too, be delayed till the fat lady sings.

    I'd rather have the fat lady.

    I am SO there!


    Not really. It's, at the moment, mostly on the shoulders of editorial: me.
