    On AxaMonitor: Ares Digital 3.0 Gets a Launch Timeline. Peters Predicts the Software Platform to Launch by end of February. We’ve finally gotten a timeline for launch of the software platform without which you’ll never see Axanar, the two short film fans have been waiting years for. Read more »

    I like how Peters will get software up and running before he got his movies made.
    And I'm sure we still won't see the movies.

    I thought he said last month that the digital software B.S. would be ready 2/01 (or maybe I just mis-remembered).

    I have to mention (again) that the $250K that AP wants for his two 15 min. segments is about half of what it cost to produce ALL of Star Trek Continues. So, to put things into perspective, AP has already raised and spent more than twice what it cost to produce ALL eleven episodes of the Star Trek Continues series. So including the original money he raised plus the addtional $250K; STC could have produced about a 27 episode season. It is just baffling to me that he has wasted so much money and people still give it to him.

    WHERE IS THE MOVIE, ALEC?

    Axanar ceased being about making a movie a long time ago and remains a Ponzi scheme to line Peters' pockets.

    Technically, it's not a Ponzi scheme, but you can certainly argue that it's fraud, especially if he doesn't actually believe that he'll finish the film.

    New on AxaMonitor: LOSS OF WAREHOUSE spurs donations, as Axanar must move for the second time in two years, again to an ever-smaller facility. Meanwhile, Jonathan Lane thanks AxaMonitor for driving new donors to the Patreon campaign. New patrons climbed into double digits for the first time since January 23. Read more »

    It does allow you to search for a topic he might've spoken about and see how much of the narrative has changed since December...

    That intro was written from the hear - I'm working on being able to speak like that too.

    It's basically one of the Axanar wallpapers. Anyone with Photoshop or GIMP could have made that. (There's a GIMP plug-in called Resynthesizer that allows you to replace a selected part of an image with a synthesized texture generated from the surroundings of the selected region, effectively allowing you to remove objects from the image. Here's a direct link to the plug-in ZIP file because the GIMP plug-in registry seems to be down. It's a recreation of a feature from Photoshop. However, I suspect the creator of this picture simply cloned adjacent parts of the image and painted over the original text, which works well enough, I suppose.)

    And by the way, @carlosp, aren't you concerned that anyone receptive to your arguments who could be turned away from the Axanar side might find such an unauthorized derivative work a tad hypocritical?

    You might get sued. Granted, it will be by U-Haul for trademark infringement and damage to their brand (because AP can't legally copyright the original image to begin with), but you could still get sued.

    hi, i have a serious question about that if i may. would the use of the logo be "transformative" or would it be "fair use" since it's kinda a "parody" or anything like that?
    thanks & BR

    also... i'm sorry, and i guess it's kinda wrong here... but i'd like your input please, the axacrowd and the axamonitor crowd already condemned Vic and takes this all for granted... but is there a single police report or anything of substance?

    @Matthew Raymond ... I think that might fall under the parody clause of the Fair Use Rule. Giving credit where it is due, the artwork was pretty good.

    Years of stories. A definite case of smoke very possibly signaling the existence of fire.
