Not a lot new has happened the past few days (at least that I can write about), though the offices continued to be worked on and Curtis is working on making the studio the best it can be. So I thought it would be a good time to post a Q&A as a lot of people have been asking questions. (I started by answering a few on Facebook, but here are some more too)
Q: Have you formerly responded to the lawsuit?
A: Paramount/CBS lawyers granted us a 30 day extension. So we are working towards that due date of Feb. 22nd with our new attorneys at Winston & Strawn.
Q: What can you tell us about the lawsuit?
A: Well, there is a lot we cannot talk about. I can’t tell you anything about strategy or how Winston & Strawn plans to defend the lawsuit as we haven’t filed an answer yet.
Q: When are you planning to share more with your fans about the lawsuit?
A: We will share information as we can give it here and on the website. Of course there is much we cannot discuss as we are involved in a lawsuit! But we will keep everyone as informed as possible.
Q: For people wanting to support the production, are you still accepting pledges?
A: While we closed the Indiegogo campaign, we are accepting donations through our retroactive donor packages for Prelude to Axanar since that campaign we can guarantee delivery of perks for!
Q: Given the the current challenges, can supporters who’ve already paid still expect to receive their ‘perks’?
A: Absolutely. Even if this was to go to trial and CBS were to win and shut us down, we will figure our replacements for the Axanar Blu Rays, and everything else we will get to our donors! We already have plans for bonus perks for everyone if that were to happen. In addition, Diana is working to get out the patches from the Axanar Kickstarter very soon, so you will begin to see some of those delivered soon.
Q: Have you stopped production?
A: Yes, at least for the time being. We have been discussing with the attorneys what is the best course of action. In the mean time, pre-production continues and at worst, if we stop production, we will have everything ready to roll cameras when the suit is settled.
