The Blu-rays are coming, the Blu-rays are coming!

If you’re familiar with the phrase “hurry up and wait”, you’ll get an idea what it’s like being the Fulfillment Department for Axanar Productions.


After pushing (and by “pushing” I mean alternately cajoling, begging, and [practically] threatening certain people within inches of their lives) for the PRELUDE to AXANAR Blu-ray/DVD content to be completed for the last several months, the finished product was finally delivered in early July (hallelujah!), and was immediately shipped off to the print production facility we use… at which point they told me to expect, as always, approximately a three-week window before our order would be ready to go.

Hmm. Pessimist that I am–when it comes to things being delivered “on time”–I planned on four weeks.

So, just over four weeks later, what do I find out? Those PRELUDE discs we’ve all been waiting for–some, more patiently than others ๐Ÿ˜‰ –are finally shipping out from the factory. Today.

Which means the shipment of PRELUDE to AXANAR–full kits to international donors whose packages included a DVD or Blu-ray, and to retroactive package donors (whose purchases occurred long after the original Kickstarter, and are shipping in-total), and discs-only packages to those in the US who donated at levels including DVD/Blu-ray (the rest of whose items shipped long ago)–should commence late next week.

Believe me, I know it’s a long time in coming… but this is VERY good news, indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Friday, everyone… and Long Live Axanar!

    Awesomely awesome, oh Goddess of Fulfillment!

    Way to stick to it! You never let them off the hook, and for that those donors that have been (as you say, some patiently, some, not so much…) waiting for their DVD/Bule-ray packages can now put a big smile on their faces with the thought of “x-mas in September” on their minds and in their dreams. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for all you do for us, Diana!

  • Ben Willis says:

    This is awesome news! Can’t wait for my “Secret Perk #3” to arrive!! It will be thoroughly and repetitively enjoyed!!!

    Thanks for your perseverance (and for the bit of pessimism thrown in for good measure) !!!

    I agree with Lee Benjamin, “Goddess of Fulfillment” should be your new title!

    Will there be a way to get the Bluray if we were not able to contribute as a backer? Will you be selling them as well?? please please please!!!

  • Jeff Allison says:

    So, this means that my blu-ray for Prelude is out in the mail right now? Is there a way to get it tracked? I never got a response from my most recent email, and was directed to this page by a friend, so this is all I have to go on for the moment. Thanks.

    • Alec Peters says:

      Please email support@axanarproductions.com.

    • Diana Kingsbury says:

      No, Jeff, it does not mean your Blu-ray is in the mail to you right now; it does, however, mean that several thousand Blu-rays (and DVDs) are in a freight truck at this very moment, on their way across the U.S. to *me*.

      As soon as they arrive here, and have been unloaded, I will begin shipping them out as promised (and explained many, many times), first to all of the International PRELUDE to AXANAR donors, then to the stateside PRELUDE donors, and finally, to the retroactive PRELUDE package donors. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is great news! Can’t wait for the international shipping to begin.
    Thanks Diane.
    Lots of love to you all
