    Don't give Alec Peters any ideas.

    What about Tellarleft?

    I'll show myself out.
    That's a matter of percentages.

    I don't know why I felt a need to check up on Axanar, but there's something comforting in the fact that it's still a hot mess a year or so later.

    I have a question for the posters/readers here in this thread that are virulently anti-Axanar (or more specifically anti-Alec Peters). I'm curious if that feeling would extend to any potential fan films that use the Axanar set/props. I don't know if any are confirmed but supposedly he is open to other fan films filming there (likely for a fee to help pay the rent). Would you guys boycott a completely unrelated fan film/creator who had nothing to do with Axanar otherwise who used that resource?

    Yes I would, for two reasons:

    1. As you suggested, AP would likely not allow the use of his Axanar sets without money changing hands, and the last thing I want is more fan money going into his pockets . The motherfucker needs to get a non fan job and support his family like a man instead of promising rainbows to trek fans for cash.

    2. As for Axanar itself, as far as I'm concerned it has as much business calling itself trek as Discovery, and any fan film that would use its trappings would be diminished in my eyes and not worthy of my support.

    I am both anti-Axanar and anti-Alec Peters. I want to see them and all related material erased from fan creation. I want Axanar dead. I want the Ares sets struck. I want Alec Peters managing the local Krispy Kreme. I want fan creation to roll on without them.

    Alec peters spreads A LOT of BS - and the biggest piece is that he's let anyone else use his sets (never happen, even if he were to actually find a place WHERE an actual production could be filmed. You can't do it in his current small warehouse)...

    So bottom line - You bring up a situation that will never come to pass - Much like Alec never actually completing Axanar in ANY real 'filmed' form.

    Don't mince words, Bones, tell me what you really think. :lol:

    Seriously, I had a flashback to Robert DeNiro's Al Capone character from Untouchables when reading that.

    If only someone could give AP Hobson's Choice; either he sells off his sets/props etc. to some other production company and commits to some job that keeps him out of any kind of acting/producing/anything to do with Star Trek, or CBS brings the hammer down in a way he can never come back from. A smart man, even a crazy one, will act to protect what's important to him, be it family, home, or anything else.

    In today's AxaMonitor Daily: In a letter to me, Alec Peters takes aim at more legal targets, expecting he'll win his suit against Robert Meyer Burnett. Meanwhile, two of his new targets — Shawn O'Halloran and Sandy Greenberg — have something to say about it. Learn more »

    Wow. If Diana 1.0 of all people is starting to get pissy, it's only a matter of time before this downward spiral escalates then.
