    Alec Peters has no incentive to finish the film. Why? Because once he does, The cash flow stops; and further people get to see the results and believe me the majority will probably not be happy because the script is shit.

    I never read the script, but if those comics posted on Flim Flam Factor are evidence of it's quality, then yeah, it's really bad.

    If Alec wanted to complete a film he would have done so. Instead, ego got in the way and he wanted to keep the money train going.

    Those comics were for the spin off Interlude film, not whatever the heck else Alec’s script is.

    Read this, it makes the Axanar feature script bearable.

    I made it up to the fight with the Klingons, and I swear if it says one more time how much everyone is impressed by amazing Garth is I'm going to lose it.:rolleyes::barf:
    I always knew this was a vanity project for Alec, but holy shit in his first two or three pages we get him flirting with a female member of his crew, and then are repeatedly told how amazing his crew thinks he is. That is just at a whole other level from what I expected.

    I read through the next four parts of the analysis and it sounds like it doesn't get any better.
    Just for comparison I read the first couple scenes of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 script, and it was interesting comparing the two. Gunn definitely wrote much better script, and after reading a better one, I could see where a lot of the criticisms of the Axanar script were coming from.
    I am a little confused, because I thought Peters brought in a big experienced screenwriter, but it seems like the script is filled to the brim with nothing but amateurish mistakes.

    As has been reported by previous professional collaborators, Alec is extremely resistant to editorial changes that

    Reduce Garth's "screen time"
    Give secondary characters agency
    Give female characters agency
    Portray Garth in a negative way
    Portray Garth as having flaws, making mistakes, or being anything other than an hyper idealized version of how Alec chooses to view himself

    So while I am sure that Alec was given constructive creative advice, he obviously chose to ignore that advice.

    And now I have an even better understanding of why he's gone through so many different behind the scenes people.

    As always, the worst enemy of the Axanar project is... Alec Peters.

    No wonder why Garth went crazy; he could not live-up to perfection!!

    Although that analysis was fun it wasn't entirely fair. It was often critiquing things that are really common in screenplays.

    Exactly. To misquote an episode title of TNG: "Well Always Have Patches!"
    Actually Peters called me an asshole for telling that truth in one of his playing grounds, "FFF". :devil:

    And that is probably the closest we will ever get to Axanar being on that channel.
