    Well, that saucer top is an... interesting set of choices.

    Um, you're replying to the sock-puppet of someone (Alec Peters) who was banned three different times long ago.

    Credit where it's due to Kenny Smith and company. I honestly did not think he had it in him. Looking forward to the finished product.

    He looks like the guy from a ghost-hunting show who walks around yelling: "Come on out, ghost! Try me on for size!" And then he screams when he feels a slight breeze.

    The above quote, as we now know is from none other than Alec Peters himself, using one of his many burner handles, RedOmega.

    It's all the more ironic and completely highlights his inherent hypocrisy and general stupidity that after making such comments, he felt no compunction about having his photo taken recently with the finished model he was so vehemently critical of in that post:

    I'd never heard of this. It certainly looks interesting. I guess as something that was well into production pre-guidelines everyone involved is hoping it's exempt?

    The ultimate cut off point, I'm reckoning, is the debut of DSC. If they can get their film out before then, or maybe before year's end, the studio will be more willing to look the other way.

    Then again, given who this particular production is affiliated with, maybe not so much...

    The guy behind this film put up all the money himself, so for his sake I really hope fan film can still go forward. However as they have not long finished the shooting miniature I am guessing they still have a lot of post production to get through.
    I do not believe that First Frontier has any affiliation with Alec Peters. The model was on display in the same venue that Axanar was using for their panel, that is all. Many others would have used the same room for different panel's and the model would have been on display for them also.

    How long until we hear about a notice from CBS gently reminding them their poster needs to conform to the guidelines?

    Since this is a standalone film, that was in production before the guidelines were issued, my guess would be: never.

    Also, they're guidelines not rules. Productions are free to ignore them, but they risk awaking the dragon, depending on how far they push it.

    One step closer to reality...

    Editing and scoring reportedly done, miniature work shot over the holidays. Sounds like this thing's about ready to go.
