    was not James Cawley's character to do whatever he wanted to. I felt the character should be handled differently and even if the lame story had to go in a certain direction I want my heroes to at least try to prevent it. I know some TOS writers returned to helm NV's fanfilms, its possible the creator of the original story made this uncalled for sequel and made that decision. Just seems wrong to go there just to go there, I wanted to event to be more organic and it wasn't.

    If you're complaining about certain characters not being the property of the folks making these episodes, why are you even watching fan films, other than looking for things to complain about?

    How about arguing WHAT your fellow member said, rather than being all passive aggressive?

    Virtually none of the characters are his, so why should this one be any different?

    He's not killing the other TOS characters, I felt killing her off didn't push the narrative or created weight where our heroes may share her fate.
    If I had the opportunity to use these characters I would use kid gloves on how I would handle them; always looking for scenarios which would ring true to what was already developed.
    I guess making an unwarranted sequel would lead to what was done by people who lack vision; her death IMO didn't make much of an impact and doesn't shift the course of the fanfilm's conclusion.

    ¡¿Why did you Spoiler the character name to just reveal what happens in the story?!

    Sometimes...

    Hi, did anybody manage to grap a copy of this ? I know a fan in Australia downloaded it but he has been talked in to not posting on the 'net' as it may one day be finished. This seems highly unlikely to me as the episode requires "Hundreds" of video effect to be added and a new music/soundtrack to be done. Most of the effects people who were involved in this work in the film industry so they would not put in jeopardy their jobs just to finish this fan film. Also James Cawley does not seem motivated to finish this (and Bread and Savagery) at all. As I did not get to see this rough cut would anybody oit there be able to either post a copy of put it on a download site ?

    I don't know anyone who grabbed it.
