    For those following the continuing drama of As the Lives of Fan Films Turn, apparently the Avalon universe had its share recently? I watch a few minutes of the fan film factor interview with Josh Irwin and he said they had to reshoot half of their latest film because of some dispute with an actor but they didn't want to go into details. Does anyone know if this thread's titular boogeyman is the root cause or involved? I have no idea so figured that would be a good guess to start with since they worked together in the past.

    Haven't done a deep dive on it, but a brief Google Search brought up this:



    Which certainly doesn't absolve him of any involvement and could be taken as evidence of at least a secondary influence on the matter.

    I was just hoping that it wasn't Tyler Dunivan (?) who plays Mason on his Avalon fan films. He just recently returned and had some very serious issues of his own (unrelated to the fan films) this year so didn't know if that spilled over. I enjoyed his and his character's recent return to the series.

    The good news is that in the latest update on youtube Alec said that the first episode of Axanar is only six months away! Again! Just like every year for the past five years it seems.

    Oh look, more unlicensed Star Trek related merchandise...Yep seems no one at CBS really cares about enforcing their settlement terms as long as Peters doesn't go back on the major visible public fundraising / AXANAR is the only 'Real Trek' / CBS really doesn't own the IP, it's actually public domain... bandwagon. :shrug::sigh:

    Perhaps they need simply be made aware as well as Viacom.
