EXCITEMENT BUILDS FOR TRAILERS RELEASE!

A large number of fans are stopping by the Facebook and Blog pages hoping to get an early glimpse at the studios series trailer, ever since the studio released news that Quantum Storm Magazine subscribers received a first look at trailer. Requests for subscriptions have doubled since news was also released of a second trailer ready for release in August.

The studios promotional push through the Trekkie Universe was increased through the help of a Facebook publisher who calls himself "Bob Trekfan", who posts any news or web projects in the works concerning Star Trek related fan films, podcasts, or web series. Bob's help has increased the number of fans who periodically stop by both the studios Facebook page and Series Blog.
Fan email is also on the surge as a fake contest was posted on an alternate site claiming that a handful of fans would be permitted the opportunity to watch both MINOTAUR trailers, should they be selected to do so. The studio denies the existence of such a contest, stating "that with the exception of E-Mag subscribers, only a select handful of family, friends, and past STB cast members have been given permission to download and view the highly anticipated trailer".

During this last week of waiting, the series director/creator, David Quintana is reviewing other Star Trek fan films released on YouTube, to gauge any commonality with plots or stories which may fall in line with MINOTAUR. So far, after reviewing over 150 ST related web series and short films, David reported that no other ST fan film comes close to representing a production, story, or plot lines within this new series format.

The Director/Creator also stated that he will not openly review or critique any of the series he's reviewed on his personal blogs or this series blog. But he did state hat he will keep fans informed of any fan films which may cross into the MINOTAUR's storyline.

    1. In due time, Mr Forte. I'd like to get several episodes ahead in production before we start releasing anything. But once the series launches, it will be a non-stop journey to keep things going! [DRQ]

  2. Watching the trailer again, I noticed something a little odd - the soundtrack for the trailer sounds a lot like tunes from ST Beyond. Am I right? Glenn Pankhurst, Macon, GA

    1. Yes, we have recycled a lot of the original tracks from STB into the series. It's good to have an original soundtrack to work with! =) [DRQ]

  4. It's so easy to appease trekkie nerds with a little CGI and a few bad actors. I've seen your work on STB and was impressed with the results. You have a good eye for story telling and a strong hand at developing a new look to keep things fresh. I'm waiting for Minotaur to launch!
