    It would be interesting to see his response if you posted a screenshot of that on his page. Would it be 1) dismissed as "fake" 2) claiming someone else posted it 3) attacking you as a "hater" 4 ) ignoring it (which his track record shows he most likely would not) Mind you, I'm not suggesting you do any such thing of course. :)

    I think at this late date the best I can do is ignore him altogether, and proclaim publicly that in reality he only exists in the minds of the True Believers who conjured him from some pagan ritual that opened a giant sucking black hole in the universe that drains bank accounts and forces his minions to sacrifice tires and sushi to His Majesty, Savior of All Things That Benefit His Majesty. :techman:

    Way to lump a bunch of people into a group of deficient intelligence with no facts because they believe in America; very open minded! Way to go!! Keep carrying on Gene Roddenberry's vision!!! Yay!!! :barf::rolleyes::shrug:

    Please keep your skewed political views to yourself here. I can watch the news if I want to hear this shit.

    The mod for this forum is out, so I'll fill in on this since I'm online.

    King Daniel, that remark had nothing to do with Axanar or the lawsuit, so please don't inject political matters into the thread.

    Feek, if you have a problem with something he said, then just report it instead of commenting yourself.

    Please return to your regularly scheduled discussion without the political stuff. Thank you.

    There's an old saying that it's easier to fool someone than it is to convince them that they've been fooled. :vulcan:

    Funny, I read that on another (unrelated) forum just this morning. :techman:

    It would be funny if Zuckerbook would clean out his plasma conduits once in a while. Joking that Abe Lincoln said "don't believe everything you read on the internet" earned me a free 2 week say in cyber jail.
    One of the reasons I won't be found on that humorless garbage site any longer.

    Kind of amazed this guy has a patreon and gets paid for literally doing nothing. Does anyone believe the Axanar shorts are going to happen at this point? I recall during the lawsuit part of the defence was that Axanar didn't exist yet. I'd get a huge kick out of, on release day, Paramount coming down on them for every single settlement violation.

    But I don't think he exists on their radar anymore. Too small fry, too few zeroes on his income.

    True, but he'd make the PERFECT example to prevent others from going down that road.

    Haven't been here in a while, but how many times has he said he's selling of part of his personal collection now?

    And if he's got warehouses of stuff, how's he paying for those properties? Does this guy have a proper day job? (Grifter doesn't count) ;)

    All very good questions! Sadly, I don't care enough to find out. I have a day job. ;) :D

    It's been what, six years now since Alex brought the wrath of guidelines down on us?
    At the time I thought the issue was funding because money is spongeable and tracing down one or two million on a 20+ minute film is damn near impossible.
    Honestly and disagree with me if you must but cropping 10-15 minutes out of a short story plot makes the whole effort less interesting for me.
    Peters could sell his new car tires and my give a damn is still busted.

    My only real reason for checking on this thread is the off chance that a film will magically appear. If it does, I might be interested enough to watch. But, I'll probably wait until the early reviews give a flavor of whether it's something worth checking out or the shiteshow most of us are expecting.

    It is funny in some ways that in the six years since the settlement we still haven't got the 30 min Axanar movies but we have had Discovery, Picard, Lower Decks, Prodigy and Strange New Worlds (along with Short Treks) in that time. I wonder how many other series / films will come along by the time Axanar released?

    The vast majority of them.

    What's more interesting to me is this idea that Axanar represented what Trek fans really want, while shows like CBS produced Trek were not popular, and would lead to the downfall of the franchise. Yet, now we have 5 shows being produced? How does that work?

    If you ask the Axanar fans, Alex Kurtzman has something on Paramount and keeps pushing his agenda, no matter how many times he’s been fired.
