I'm glad CBS finally resolved their legal dispute with the guys making Axanar. Axanar is a Star Trek fan film that was crowdfunded and caught the attention of studio heads at CBS which holds the TV rights to Star Trek and it resulted in a law suit. One of the stars is Richard Hatch who sadly passed away this week. Here's the preview film they made for the kickstarter. It looks incredible for a fan film. Definitely looks better than Phantom Menace!

Looks promising for sure.   Glad Richard got to be a part of it before he passed, and it's cool that people will get to see this.

I'm looking forward to whatever they'll be able to make in two 15 minutes segments.  This interview with Alec Peters may be of interest:

Good to see things have been resolved with Axanar and that their project is moving forward in some form, though I'm disappointed at how far CBS' fan film restrictions have gone. Lucasfilm and Disney usually encourage this stuff among Star Wars fans. The delay in production I'm sure set back filming with Richard Hatch, which would be a huge loss.

 

Trekyards does a nice job with this stuff, thanks for sharing this with us!
