    Ah... I cannot wait to see his patented "there's something that smells funny in this room" brand of acting.

    Nobody drops $36,000 three months prior to filing a lawsuit after waiting over two years - that's got ulterior motive written all over it. They also probably aren't expecting to receive $5 million in damages from Anovos, the "get rich" part is suing Disney, CBS and NBC/Universal.

    What's most likely is that those companies, which undoubtedly required Anovos to fully indemnify them as part of the license, terminate those licenses with Anovos, Anovos goes out of business, and the plantiff loses $40,000.

    Way back in the days B.A (Before Axanar) I learned to never contribute for a first time venture. I watched one by one peters out after a sales pitch.
    Meanwhile Phase II/NV was cool, nice productions so I never minded tossing a few buck their way after each production was released each year.
    But all good things must come to an end. (Stupid rule)
    I looked back at NV, forward towards STC and thought my little contributions would only be a drop in the ocean.
    I found Potemkin filming in a carport, some 10 plus or minus productions released so I asked if I could send them a few dollars. A few days latter a thank you from Randy and he really needed a new memory card for his camera. I was like wow, I actually made a difference. This was a sharp contrast to NV who had two or three different donate buttons. I forget but one for overhead another for production and whatever. Why should I care if it all goes to the same place. Well I got a strongly worded message about how I contributed to the wrong department and should request Paypal to return my money so I can contribute to the proper department.
    To tell you the truth and I NEVER took it personally but some of the people at NV came across like us little people weren't intelligent enough to speak to. Except Patty.
    I may not be very smart to them but I built my own business not only by contracting to both the state and Federal ag business (IPM) but also Lucas Arts, Electronic Arts and a host of other computer game developers.
    Never Ever disrespect anyone if you expect get somewhere. Honestly I've pulled the financial rug out from under a bay area trucking company just over the co ex owner calling me a cheat, so I signed every truck and the route they drove over to each driver. we held the contracts to three stadiums/airport connections.

    A fuller picture as of this moment. How long these comments last is anyone's guess.I redacted the full names.

    Alice I rewatched Prelude to Axanar twice last night. It really is good. So sad.......

    Daniel I’d rather not

    Ryan G. So far the axanar universe consists of a years old prelude. We haven’t seen a film yet. I love you guys to death but so far I’m not seeing it. The constant drama and infighting as well as the bashing of DSC and CBS is wearing a little thin. Now you’re gonna have fan films set in this universe that are getting online faster than your own film. Be it the fan film restrictions, stollen assets and god knows what else. it’s looking pretty bleak guys. Not bashing you at all but let’s be real first duty to the truth and all that.

    James Ryan G. totally agreed

    Jim "Stolen" assets implies Rob took something that didn't belong to him. There is another side to that story which is in direct conflict with that accusation (and quite interesting to hear). The court will get to decide who's side of the story is valid.
    Regardless, those assets do not appear to have any bearing on the ability to produce the two 15 minute segments, now long overdue. They are related to blue ray material that was ultimately promised to certain donors.

    Ryan G. Either way there’s no product. It’s all still a pipe dream and there is no “axanar universe”. Time to move on. For everyone.

    Kevin Ryan G. Then why are you here? How is ^^^^ THAT moving on? GO ahead and move on already if that's what you want.

    Ryan G. Morbid curiosity.

    Lance I would like everyone to like what is being produced, but that will not happen. I would everyone to be patient, but that will not happen. I would like everyone to enjoy the creative process as I do, but that won't happen.
    I do, what I believe is, the best I can to NOT piss on what others like, or have a passion for. I'd like everyone to share this view, but that will not happen.
    BUT, we do REQUIRE "ALL" to be civil, do not bash what others like. This of your presence here as being a guest in someone's house. If you are a bad guest you will be chastised and shown the door, in a commensurately hostile manner to the offense given. If you are an adult, you politely excuse yourself AND LEAVE.

    James It’s not set in the axanar universe it’s set in the Star Trek universe.​
    Me: In point of fact a poster image on their funding page reads "A STAR TREK fan film set in the Axanar universe"
    [off-topic CBS Trek bashing]
    Nenad how but you actualy make the first part that you got money for.

    Chris H. LOL. NO! I'd prefer a refund for my wasted money!

    James F. Can we just get AZANAR released first before we are asked to give even more money?

    Benny I'm not rich enough to support another project. If only what I have already donated were to become a reality then maybe :(

    Mike W. Finish what u promised first.took everybody’s money and promised a dvd and nothing

    Jenna Support in other words you want our cash
    Yet no one has seen anything from the last SUPPORT
    So I’m gonna pass on this one ☝️

    Ryan G. Y’all got too much drama going on. You need to get your house in order first.

    James M. Let's see how many people fall for this a second time most people are stupid anuf

    Joshua So far the answer is 33.

    Charlotte How stupid do you think we are? Got conned the first time round, not planning on repeating the experience.

    Ryan G. [QapLa' GIF]​
    James M. Not likely

    Brandon No more money from me.

    Barry I wish I could support this with money just to give CBS a screw you

    Dominic No thanks, I'll skip this time.

    Jonathan I feel my loyalties shifting

    James How about you guys at bullshit-anar support me for a change? You clearly have enough money!!

    Ryan Your original kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/.../194429923/star-trek-axanar "everything we need for the sets and studio and are well on our way to covering most of the budget. So we are going to start working on a formal budgeting process for Axanar and get those numbers as soon as possible. As always, every donor will get updated through the updates here, as well as on our Facebook Donor Group."
    This was for a 90 minute film. Where is this film?
    From your new fund me.
    "This is a promise. All monies raised for INTERLUDE will go to INTERLUDE, and any surplus (if there is enough) will be used for a thank you gift(s) for donors. If there is significant money left over beyond that, it will be deposited into a bank account to be used for a future non-Axanar Productions fan film set within the Axanar Universe."
    I loved the 20 minute piece. However, asking again to donate when people didn't get what they donated for in the first place is just bizarre.

    Ryan Gr. Ryan G. it’s called a hustle.​

    Yeah, a lot of people aren't going for it.

    I haven't been in the Axanar Facebook groups in months, and it's nice to see people feel the same way as I do. Scammed, conned, cheated, and a whole bunch of other words to go along with it. Lane will get no money from me. I just can't trust anyone affiliated with Axanar to do in the end what they say they will do in the beginning. It's been what five years now, and we don't have anything other than Prelude yet. That ain't right.

    When irony is that strong, it must be a steel alloy.

    Seriously? What's next, "I would like to wish everyone, including all haters and losers (of which, sadly, there are many) to live long and prosper!"?

    So far Interlude has raised enough to cover half the cost of the uniform tunics.

    Considering he's supposedly playing "Garth of Izar" in that film; I would say the above statement is in error.
