    I can guarantee 100% that William Shatner has paid little to no attention to fan films to have any sort of idea that Continues is coming to an end. As far as he's concerned, they've done it, they've apparently done it more than once, and for all he knows are still doing it: hence the snippiness.

    Pretty sure Shatner has Jewish Alzheimer's; that's where you forget everything but the grudges. I'm Jewish myself, so I can say that.

    Pretty sure Shatner doesn't even read his Twitter account, let alone write it.

    And farther along this train of thought, what little he *does* know about them may be spreading Axanar's reputation all over the rest.

    Although, Vic has posted pictures of him and Bill before, so its not like they aren't familiar with each other in person.

    Just because you took a picture with a celebrity doesn't mean you 'know' them or have any real relationship with them.

    This far out Shatner may have confused STC with Axanar. I'm giving everyone he benefit of the doubt. Except, of course, LLAP (Lifelong Loser Alec Peters). That guy has soured the milk for every fan production, past, present, and future.

    Good job, Alex. :angryrazz:

    I'm pretty sure Vic and Bill have been at multiple conventions together, with Vic even introducing him at a few of them. He's not just some fan who met him once.

    Vic's also a professional actor/voice actor and has been for many many years, not just a random guy, he's in 'the industry'

    Again, then Vic should be acutely aware of how much 'image' is everything to a actor's career and using said image multiple times without permission shows a lack of respect.

    Lets be real; Vic, like Shatner has someone running the STC facebook and other media. I'm sure he didn't intentionally post Shatner's image just as I'm sure that Shatner didn't himself post the comment. Not a lack of respect, more like a mistake by a third party.

    Well, not much can be done about videos that individuals with no affiliation to STC put together and post. Welcome to the internet!

    I can understand both sides. I can understand Continues when they use pictures from the show but you just can't stop Shatner being unhappy about it.

    Though I never thought that Shatner is the greatest person, it must be sad for the Continues Crew.

    That's unfortunate. I've heard Vic Mignogna speak effusively a couple times about having had the chance to get to know Shatner; it's a shame if Continues ended up adversely affecting Shatner's perception of Vic.

    I'd suspect any "rough patch" between the two because of this has been worked out behind the scenes and everything is fine.

    He’s really not happy is he.

    I still wonder if ‘Still Treads The Shadow’ was written with the hope of getting Bill on board.
