...and that too was ignored by EVERY other fan film project out there.
What do you expect? It's a Trek fan film. The TOS ones take everything lock stock and barrel including unfilmed scripts and original actors. Of course a fan film is going to reuse major elements from the franchise.
He didn't do anything that anyone else hasn't done.
I like having what I want when I want it.
Forms of consumption other than privately owned physical media simply don't allow for this.

Except it's you lot that are pretending that an expensive brand name product is somehow different from it's cheap generic counterpart.
The fact that you're spouting complete medical gibberish is par for the course.
So then subscribe to one of several services that offer new content on a paid basis. Even that is still cheaper than most cable packages.
Keeping yourself "informed" on Slashdot? Really?
You have no reason to be smug about anything.
Their idea of an offer you can't refuse is an offer... and you'd better not refuse.
