UPDATE: Sphinxcon information has been found by a 1701NEWS reader:
It appears convention goers will be shuttled to the for-profit studio where the Star Trek fan film is allegedly being made for a meet and greet with the guests. Ticket holders will also get a tour and some photo ops on the bridge of the Ares from Star Trek: Axanar. Interesting.
In a sign Alec is interested in making the two 15 minute episodes of Axanar, almost eighteen months after the lawsuit was settled, a call out has been sent by the producer of the infamous production for volunteers to help build out the remainder of the bridge set.
This comes after Alec’s recent admissions that the bridge set probably wont see the light of day in the final fan films and that the final product will be released in 2019, despite having most, if not all, of the visual effects done.
Alec’s post on the Atlanta Volunteer’s group states he wants completion by November in time for something called Sphinx Con, yet the to do list is a mile long – including electrical work, carpet laying, graphics creation, printing and applying to consoles, animated graphics for the monitors surrounding the bridge… and presumably computers to power said monitors.
It’s a tall order from the man that’s put more time into responding to critics rather than actually getting on with making the fan film.
Time will tell.
