    I did too, which is why I will not be donating to ANY film unless it's a donation after it is released :-)

    Jeez, after all these years this is careering on like a drunk Horta? I’d really like to know what return regular contributors think they’re getting. How many things can you sew those dumb patches onto?

    The only person I would trust to make a documentary about the Axanar debacle is Carlos Pedroza aka Axamonitor.

    Axanarists are the Q-anon people of Trek fandom. They won't go away. They've latched on to their own hopeless stupid case that they wont let go of. I know one. She thinks Prelude is canon and anything from Disco onward is not.

    I once spoke to a fan on Facebook who insisted her Picard/Riker fanfic was canon. And that Pocket were "considering" releasing it as a novel. And then a bunch of newbies all with blank accounts joined the conversation to agree with all her points.

    Fandom is a funny place.

    What is more interesting, if a bit more concerning, is how much weight is given to things as canon. Like, you can ignore Discovery (I highly recommend it) and embrace Axanar all you want. It won't change CBS' mind at all but why worry canon so much that you through behind it with such fervor? People are confusing.

    Worrying about the minutiae of an emphemeral nonexistant world outside of your own control beyond the same daydreaming we all did as children is a kind of comfort food for the mind. Whether it is bad for us or not, who knows. On some level or not, this being a fandom forum, we all engage in it.

    Fandom is filled with a lot of cognitive biases.

    I mean, fair enough, and Seneca is right. But, I think a moment of self-reflection to say "Hey, it's OK if this isn't canon" is helpful from time to time.

    But, what do I know?

    What do you have against engineer Montgomery Scott to offer him as an acid snack for a female horta to get it drunk? ;)
