Dear Forum Members
I am a Star Trek fan, not so much of the new JJ Abrams films, but most of the old stuff, like Deep Space 9, and of some of the fan made films.
However, the 21 minute fan funded film I quite enjoy at the moment is Prelude to Axanar, in fact I watched it again yesterday morning, for the umpteenth time.
Whether this fan film will ever get made into a feature film is unknown at the moment because CBS and Paramount tried to close it down by tying up the Axanar production team with a lawsuit. And this piece of corporate stupidity put a massive dent the start-up company's time table and finances.
However, JJ Abrams convinced the powers that be to drop their lawsuit because they were alienating and causing bad will amongst Star Trek fans, and this may come back and bite them in their box office takings.
Anyway, Star Trek fans can catch this little gem on YouTube.
