    That gives it Super Bowl-style cred.

    They have done nothing except blame everyone else for them not doing anything.

    ah ok.
    What happens if nothing is produced, what happens to the money that was fund raised ?

    Said money was already used on various things (phones, car repairs, tires, Alec Peters' paying himself a salary, etc.) <--- That's always been a major part of the many issues with their Axanar Project

    We're at 1681.

    In 1681, on October 28, according to Wikipedia, "A London woman is publicly flogged, for the crime of 'involving herself in politics.'"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1681

    It's a metaphor for our times.

    Dude, the money was gone a long time ago. AP spent it on a half-assed commercial studio, tires, insurance, travel, at least two girlfriends, and sushi.

    At least $1.5M pissed away, and donors still think there's going to be a movie. :ack:

    Well, we are seeing that exact thing right now!!! The money is gone and nothing is happening (or is going to ever happen).

    Well most of it has flamed out.

    Alec’s quiet. Spends his time singing to the tune of No Woman No Cry - No Money No Film.
    Gosset is gone.
    Hatch is sadly gone.
    Vernon and others are gone.
    CBS has defined the limits.
    Lawsuit over.
    Continues over.
    50th anniversary over.
    Tampaxanar silent.
    Cawley still keeping the lights on.

    Need a new storyline.

    Sets are not finished
    Nobody has been cast
    They claim script is “locked” even though they don’t understand the term.
    They have no money.

    However you can pay and come help them inventory stuff.

    Money has been gone for a while. They will have to raise more money to make axanar lite.

    Reports were even before the lawsuit there wasn’t enough left to make what they had promised.

    don’t they have enough of Alec wistfully looking at his uniform and Tobias’ pew pew to make a film?

    Surely.
