    As to size comparison I found this but I don't know how accurate it is.

    I think Tobias Richter himself made that chart.
    At that scale, the guy on the hull would be like 10-12 feet tall, though.

    I guess they just haven't totally figured out the scale of the ship yet. By the comparison chart, the Ares class has 10-11 decks.
    By comparing it with the man on the hull and the size of the bridge "bump", it's 6-8 decks, depending on where you draw the lines.

    It'a a illusion effect. He's actually floating and and is closer then you think. Picture him standing on the hall by one of the portholes on this side of the grill.

    If you watch the actual documentary, they do a flyby and he is shown very clearly standing on the hull right in front of the inspection pod there. :)

    That ship chart is from me, indeed - the sizes of the ships are final (for now), but it was a long process to get there... The Ares has 9-10 decks - we will flesh those details out at a later date, Sean is probably at it already. Keep in mind that each deck is not only around 2-2.5 meters high, but also has a certain amount of wall thickness. Also, the guy in the spacesuit appears larger because of the spacesuit. So all in all, the size of him should be roughly ok.

    Yeah, I figured he'd basically be Master Chief sized.

    @ tobiasrichter - So would that would put the Ares has having a crew complement at approximately 150 to 200 ?

    We havenĀ“t really determined that yet to my knowledge. I think the plan is to have a booklet or book with all the ships, backgrounds, plans and so on in the next Kickstarter. So we will have to define that in the coming months. But your assumption should be in the right ballpark.

    I was hopping around YouTube earlier this afternoon and happened to click "Prelude to Axanar," and after doing so, I was served with a pre-roll video ad. It was one of the ads where you have to wait three seconds before you can press the button to skip it.

    I thought that was weird, so I hit refresh a few times to see if it was just a bug in YouTube.

    Nope.

    I was under the impression that fan films couldn't generate money though advertising like this? Has that changed? Did somebody at Axanar accidentally enable the wrong settings on this video? Is a third party somehow monetizing it?

    I just tried it myself, and no pre-roll ad. Just straight into the start of Prelude.

    And according to the Axanar team, any ads being run are not by them. They are smart enough to actually follow the rules.

    If they haven't already they need to check to make sure their YouTube channel is not set up for monetization (https://www.youtube.com/account_monetization), and if it is, go to the videos in the Video Manager and make certainty the Monetize with Ads feature is not clicked on.

    Whatever was going on, I'm not seeing ads anymore.

    On Facebook it has been suggested that there were 12 Ares-class ships built by the time of the Battle of Axanar. I think one of the large donor perks involved naming some of them, though it could have been naming any ship in Starfleet that would appear on screen.

    It is unknown if any survive the war.

    There will be only one Ares on the screen. The names will go to the other Starfleet ships.

    So, has anyone who donated to the Kickstarter campaign gotten their Backerkit email yet?

    Re:
    I know there are still a few days left in the month but I was curious if anyone's seen anything yet.

    No, they haven't sent it out yet. If you pay attention to either their Facebook group or read the updates they send out, they will tell you everything.

    And here is their latest podcast: http://www.trek.fm/axp/8

    No matter where you go, there you are.
    Listening to the podcast now, the pre-production chat is really fascinating.

    Nope - been patiently waiting for their 'backerkit' e-mail mysellf; and haven't seen it yet in either my inbox, junk mail, or spam folder. (Hate to say this but nice to know I'm not alone. ;):rofl:)
