Weren't you going to make 13 episodes? Did CBS make you stop?
CBS is not responsible for the decision to end the series. We are doing 11 episodes instead of 13 because another fan group took advantage of the good graces of the copyright holders forcing them to protect their property and the interests of their license holders. In deference and gratitude to CBS, we wrapped up earlier than planned and are very proud of what we’ve accomplished.
Can we get DVDs/Blu-ray discs of the final episodes?
As we do not own STAR TREK, we cannot sell DVDs or Blu-ray discs. In the past, we've made a limited number of discs available as crowdfunding perks. However, since we are no longer crowdfunding, providing episodes to the public on DVD and/or Blu-ray discs is not currently feasible for us.
However, we are releasing the files from each episode so that you can burn your own DVD or Blu-ray discs. And we’ll include files for a special music CD of original music, as well as disc inserts and posters and scripts from our series.
What will happen to the studio/sets? Will set visits/tours be available?
We don't have a definitive answer on this right now, but we're considering all our options.
So, you can't make more full-length episodes due to the guidelines, but can you make more vignettes?
Yes, short films are allowed by CBS's guidelines, but the run time is not the only limitation that would preclude us from continuing. We finished our mission and are grateful to have been able to do so.
How about making some other fan film (Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Lost in Space, etc?)
STC was born from Vic Mignogna's love of STAR TREK and not any other franchise. It's the kind of love required to do this kind of work for 5 years for free. While the other shows are favorites, they aren’t “devote-5-years-of-your-life” favorites!
