No, no, it's Doctor Whozits of the Starship Serenity and his girlfriend Scotty.

Just a heads up on this whole Axanar crap.

It's dead, although now I think it's even more dead than before. $1.4M paid and nothing to show for it. The people who donated previously aren't getting refunds because all that money was used on rent. AP got evicted from the studio (his words: "the landlord is taking over")

Bill Smith @TrekGeekBill
@AlecPeters is offering donors to current IGG their money back. Trekkies who donated $1.4mil get NOTHING. Wait we got shit on. #SoTheresThat

Trek Geeks @TrekGeeks
Congratulations #Axanar donors! You get NO movie, NO studio (that you paid to build) & NO REFUND...unlike current Indiegogo donors. #Cheated

Not only could it be wrong info, it's probably irrelevant now. Axanar is dead.

Why do you think:

1) we are going to believe some guy on the internet's source?
2) that if we do we are going to figure out who you are and make the source know that you squealed?
3) that your telling us you have a source is really going to change the dynamics of this discussion?
4) that this still matters anyway?

It is the internet. We are anonymous. You suck at the internet.

Explain how stealing $1.4M from donors, not giving any back, and nothing to show for it is "biased"?

Hmm... Some, or all, of what you said there very well may be incorrect, and not all that's happened in this has been reported (or was reported incorrectly).

You should be comfortable with that, since it perfectly resembles your love life. To quote Bill Shatner's iconic SNL performance, have you ever even touched a woman? I'll bet you're one of those types who sits and daydreams about Trek being real, don't you? Sorry sport, no Orion slave girl is going to come to Earth to touch your wiener. Ever.

Like a few others here, you started and then fostered this state of antagonism, getting your jollies by taking cheap shots at my expense in thread after thread, don't try to play the victim now. Until you decide to give the hostility a rest, the gloves are off. Dude. My advice is to take the olive branch and move on with your life.

I can split this so you guys can have your own hate circle thread, or delete the derails and hand out demerits. Some of us might like to discus that nifty new CBS trailer.

I'm trying to patch all this up, a split would just make a thread about a member, and that also against the rules. I'd rather people just stop trying to provoke and troll, but it's been going on for years and they may not know how, at this point. I offered a truce, for the sake of everyone else here, let's see what happens.

I can see how you'd think that bringing this up again was trolling, but I think whomever that was was just trying to see if you'd admit to being wrong, which seems like a difficult thing for you in general.

They'd have to be very careful with that. We already have Sarek and Harry Mudd in the show.

So you keep trolling about it? I understand that you like to act really daft at times, it's your schtick (along w/ the passive-aggressive, faux-innocence routine), but even that character must realize that "I'm not at liberty to give more information about this" by now, right?

I'm getting tired of them rehashing Sarek, he's been overused at this point.
