    After listening to today's Inglourious Treksperts (with RMB as a guest), in which they spend an uncomfortably looooooong portion of a supposed "Six Degrees of Shatner" episode blathering on about listener reviews, this article totally tracks with the discussion about their tendency to get rather male gazey & not having many women on the show. For a group of all white, cis, straight men, it went about as awkwardly as one would expect.

    Sometimes I think I'd actually like to meet Peters, he seems to have some weird magnetic hold over people.

    Gossett managed to escape intact, but that was mostly from being pushed away early on by Burnett. Then Burnett threw away his nice little Trek-adjacent career by hitching himself to Axanar (which is probably why he seems the most bitter). Followed by Jenkins, who became deeply involved so late it's bizarre to me, because he really should have known better.

    I forget where I read it, but seem to recall that Jenkins later described his involvement with Axanar as akin to trying to help a beleaguered fan film to finish its project and deliver that result to the donors who had been waiting for so long.
    He seems to have taken Alec Peters at his word regarding the CBS lawsuit and ignored the so-called "Axa-haters" (since there are always dissenters to any franchise), instead focussing on getting the project completed. However, once it became clear that Alec had no intention of actually finishing the project, Jenkins departed - and was subsequently sued by Peters.

    A lot of people at the time were amazed that Jenkins would agree to come on board but as a salesman, Alec Peters really knows his stuff. Everything else? Not so much.

    Says the head of a fan group who after 7 years have produced one 20 minute fan film, a few trailers and one new scene; and who after getting 2.4 million in pledges, haven't found a studio space they can use or produced anything further except for a weekly YouTube podcast.:shrug::rommie:

    Calling AP an amateur casts actual amateurs in a bad light. His Majesty is just a grifter -- and not even a good one. :techman:

    Aren't grifters professional by definition?
