    Anyone know what is going on with the fine "Farragut" folks lately.

    My understanding is they are not going forward with Farragut Forward due the hell Axanar hath wrought and may be doing something original.

    Brought on confirmed that Farragut Forward is no more despite an image of the new crew appearing on his Facebook. This is due to the cbs guide lines.

    A crying shame, I utterly love the movie era, we know the Farragut crew already so to see them develop into a new chapter would have been cool, even just for one film. The pilot was to be written by Trek novel/comic veteran Michael Jan Friedman.

    I believe they were to build a Wrath of Khan bridge with mostly green screen for other settings. Ah well, we have Homecoming to look forward to.

    I think they were looking into accomplishing the bridge at least partly with greenscreen as well.

    So we lost two episodes of STC (Vic wanted to do 13 episodes originally) and now FORWARD FARRAGUT. (I'll take this as confirmed now...)

    Boy, this sucks...

    At least YORKTOWN: A TIME TO HEAL is still being worked on, that's something I guess

    But the Takei scandal throws shade on that.

    The producer says it's more of an extended cameo and they're soldiering on. He hopes the allegation will be proven false

    I know enough about the film to say—worst case—if they needed to they could cut George out and it would not materially impact the story.

    Of all the bummers that bummed me out about the post-guidelines world, the death of Farragut Forward bummed me out the most, even more than the cut Continues episodes. I adore the movie era. Just the sounds of it are incredible -- and weirdly hard to find. We spent literally days building just a couple of basic bridge loops for the Excelsior Chekov/Uhura crossover, scavenging through hours of footage for the few moments where the bridge was on-screen, everyone was quiet, and there was no music. (We never found a decent phaser sound and had to pull some shenanigans to cover it up in the final mix.)

    So I was very excited to see the Farragut team take on that era in full visual glory. They've proven how good they are at evoking the era they're set in and I'm sure they would have blown us away.

    I still secretly hope the relative quiet post-Axanar in this scene will permit Farragut Forward to find new life.

    [EDIT: Link removed.] It's a bunch of TOS movie era film sound effects, including a 1.5 minute loop of the Reliant bridge and over 3 minutes of the Enterprise's.

    We use TrekCore for most of our sound effects.

    Really cool to see Stan Lee make an appearance in the trailer.
