    That was really terrible, he should get his money back from acting class.

    It's pretty bad when you can't even pull off two, two word lines convincingly.
    And I'm sorry, but the TOS sounds blaring at full volume as the only sounds, is really fucking annoying. They're fine as quite background noise, under the music and dialogue and sound effects, but that's it.

    Sooo,.. in 40 to 50 years the design for the big drydocks never changed?

    The acting and directing are both awful, but could they not have sent the footage off to someone who knows how to edit?

    My trek-fu is apparently weak. What is that in reference to?

    Basically, the drydock sequence the frame of the drydock is almost identical to the TMP dock. There is no changes to it.

    I don't think there are 40-50 years in between Axanar (at least in the original FASA setting) and TMP. It's more like 20 years but I'll admit that I don't follow the project close enough to know if they changed that.

    Regardless, didn't they reuse DISCO ships and shipyards in Picard? That difference is 100+ years. Admittedly it was likely done simply to save time/money (the digital equivalent of redressing an old set for a "new" ship bridge) but the precedent has been set in canon assuming that I'm remembering it correctly.

    There are so many more things fundamentally wrong with this short than the drydock configurations...

    If you're fundamentally opposed to nitpicking an IP then you've probably chosen the wrong one to follow. I'd suggest not getting into historical wargaming and reenactment as well. :)

    I actually am a former wargamer and reenactor (from WWII up to Vietnam era - hence my alias, 137th Gebirg) and we always strove for historical accuracy with everything we did, although the wargaming, while starting off historically correct, nearly always tread more into "what if" scenarios than the reenactment tacticals did.

    Since this latest video is neither a reenactment (since it's about the future and can therefore not be compared for accuracy against reality), nor is it a wargame, but more a discussion about bad writing/acting/editing, I'm not sure I take your meaning here.

    In fact, the Axanar project will need to soon have the Battlestar Galactica Award of Shameless Stock Footage Recycling™ bestowed upon its producers.

    It was a joke about hobbies where extreme attention to minor detail (i.e. nitpicking) is the norm.

    AH! Yes - in the reenacting world, they definitely have those. They're called "Stitch Nazis" (irrespective of which side they're representing), who examine other people's uniforms and gear, incessantly pointing out all the flaws and inaccuracies, when the spectators generally wouldn't have the first clue about any of that, including sometimes those who actually experienced the real conflict. It's the call of the "FARB" - as in, "Far be it for me to tell you, son, that's not period correct". :D

    Not only that, but they also used the Kelvinverse Stardate system. It's simpler than the Prime one, so I'm thinking it's probably just a case of them being to lazy to try to work out the Prime date. Still, for a group who keeps reassuring their fans this will be Prime Trek, not Kelvinverse, it's a little confusing to see something from the Kelvinverse featured so prominently.

    Sounds like people I met in the Society for Creative Anachronism, which is why I never got into it overly much.

    Even better - Starfleets BRAND NEW answer to the D-6 just 10 or so years earlier is completely decommissioned. Doesn't say much for the in Universe engineering design when 20 or so years later Star Fleet is cranking out designs (and ships) that last 120 years. :rommie: (IE - Even the 'setup' for this scene makes little sense.)
