    Well, he wasn't. He was intense in a mildly unsettling way, and a drones. And he was competing to be Vic Mignogna's #1 fan.

    So no wonder he hates Vic so much now... he was spurned!

    Today’s donor email: free Axanar coffee mug, but pay for shipping to get it.

    That’s not free.

    You know, it really is kind of impressive that Alec Peter has managed to keep this con going for so long, and it sounds like there are no signs he's going to be stopping any time soon.
    At the same time, it's kind of sad that there are enough naïve people out there that he can keep getting enough $$$$$ from them to keep it all going.

    AXANAR 2025:

    -Half-sets in open air behind Alec's mobile home, where he lives with Crystal and Jonathan Lane

    -Alec asking donors to send just a little more to ship those patches they bought with their donations in 2017

    -Director #7 has just left the project and posted his cut of Axanar Prelude Episode 9: The Phantom D7. Alec tells Axanerds not to watch it and instead donate for a definitive reshoot rewritten, directed and shot by Alec himself on his iPhone

    So like "Spectre of the Gun"? That's more like real Star Trek than 'pew, pew, pew', isn't it?! ;)

    How much are you donating then? ;)

    Incomplete answer. The correct answer is: other people's money and other people's money.

    Apparently, people have been writing to Creation saying featuring Axanar at the convention isn't the best idea. In a prime example of the Streisand Effect, I found that out from a very thirsty email newsletter begging to write emails to Creation about how great Axanar is.

    It's never a good sign when you have enough "haters" to launch a letter writing campaign against you:lol:

    I eagerly await Alec's mantrum agaisnt Creation when they realise what a pile of steaming shit they're working with and ditch him like everyone else has.

    From what I hear, 90% of Axanar e-mails come in one of two flavors: Send Us More Money -and- Haters Are Mean To Us.

    I thought the 5 years war should've been over like a year ago.

    Alec should learn to shake it off like Taylor Swift.

    This looks interesting...

    https://www.cbr.com/paul-jenkins-documentary-toxic-fan/

    Paul Jenkins is taking his experience with what he describes as a toxic fan and he is turning it into a documentary about his experience but also about toxic fandom in general.

    Yesterday, the longtime comic book writer tweeted out, "For the past year or so, my family and I have been under constant attack by a toxic fan. Today marks the beginning of the end of this cruelty. We are making a documentary, and we're making a stand."

    Today, he released the teaser for the documentary that he was referring to, called Into the Wormhole: The Battle for Axanar.

    The film is based around a fan-film, Axanar, which began life as a Star Trek fan film before various lawsuits caused it to drop the "Star Trek" part of the title. The film raised roughly $2 million but it has encountered numerous setbacks over the years. Paul Jenkins became involved in the project at one point and his involvement also eventually led to a lawsuit, as well.

    So the documentary explores Jenkins' personal experience with the fan behind the project, Alec Peters, who Jenkins describes as being the center of every setback and controversy on the project and what happened when Jenkins began to explore what happened to the money pledged for the making of Axanar.
