    If we're going to be damned, let's be damned for what we really are.

    I mean, this thread is about random quotes, right? What a nice change. Can I have a slice of pecan pie, please?

    It's the Kelvin timeline of Axanar threads.

    My god, TrekBBS, what have you done?
    What we had to do; what we always do: rebirth a locked thread into a fighting chance to argue once again.

    The Axanar Project was fans’ last, best hope for snark. A self-contained thread 1703 pages long located in the TrekBBS. A place of memes and discussions for a quarter of a thousand haters and lurkers. A shining beacon in cyberspace, all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the Third Age of The Guidelines...the year Axanar Lite was thirty days away from shooting. This is the story of the last of the Axanar Fundraisers. The year is 2018. The name of the thread is Axanar 2.

    I had to laugh over the whining in the other thread over how the guidelines kill creativity. The funniest running gag in Monty Python and the Holy Grail was the guys clapping coconut hulls together instead of riding horses. I saw an interview where John Cleese explained that they came up with the gag because they didn't have enough of a budget to rent real horses.

    It’s a great gag!

    And the entitlement was running rampant in the other thread.

    So, what's coming out first, Axanar Volume VIII: Parts 3 and 4: A New Hope, Untitled Quentin Tarantino Star Trek Movie or the public release of part 2 of Renegades: The Requiem?

    No, no no. The list should be...

    Axanar Lite
    the next Starship Exeter episode
    CBS/Paramount sues to stop Axanar, Part 3.

    And if Axanar DOES come out, I'm willing to eat pie.;)

    Hahaha! Why thank you. I will take this responsibility with as much pomp and circumstance as it deserves! I just regret not working "waves on the firmament" or "pulse you" into it.

    And I said that I didn't see how generating pages upon pages of content couldn't be creative, which you agreed with. (Note that your message is actually longer than the message you replied to.)
    Seeing as you've made page after page of replies to me, I don't see how this could be anything other the hypocrisy. You're guilty of just as much "complaining" as I am, if not more.
    ...Complains @Professor Zoom. Do you not understand how hypocrisy works?
    I'm not sure you're aware of this, but being brutally tortured to death should not be the threshold we should have to cross before we have the right to disagree with something. I shouldn't have to wait for the threat of a war crime before I have the right to offer criticism, nor does what I criticize even need to be a technical violation of the law. Free speech could not exist in the first place under such circumstances.

    As for the point of bringing up such extreme restrictions in the first place, I was pointing out that there are, in fact, situations where restrictions can demonstrably result in less creativity. Though I feel my point is still valid, I concede that it's a bit "Godwin's Law", so touche in that regard.
    Who said I wasn't making a movie? I'm just not making a STAR TREK movie. Or are you going to argue that it's creatively more challenging to write a short fan film instead of a feature-length pilot where you set up your own universe?
    If you really cared about how I spent my creative energies, you wouldn't waste my time with tiresome messages like this. And how is refusing to violate the legal copyrights of CBS NOT the "moral high ground"? Explain that one to me.
