Perhaps Paramount set up the recently released "new guidelines" to persuade the large fan film genre to stop what their doing, to go pay and see how "professional Star Trek films" are actually made. Whatever the real case is, what Paramount has proven again is that they continue to miss the mark and deliver crap to the huge fan base of Trekkies world wide. The review is in and Paramount has a of re-thinking to do once this "crap bomb" hits the streets.
In my opinion, after stealing the title to our web series which has garnered a little following on Facebook, it has proven that the rebooted franchise is dying an early death with bad storytelling, bad acting, bad character development, and not giving anything for fans to fall in love with. The Star Trek universe is about a lot more than just fancy CGI effects and explosions...where's the real mystery, where's the excitement of the adventure, where are the voyages!?!
As MINOTAUR creeps into the fray of Internet exposure, there is the belief that the web series will deliver the type of stories and series format which fans will enjoy, but most importantly, come back to see time and time again. All the time waiting for the next episode take them on an extraordinary new journey; the voyage of adventure which fans haven't tasted in a long, long time.
In the long run the new Star Trek television series will launch next year, just a few months after MINOTAUR launches into life. As I am sure that there isn't going to be a contest about which one will get the top reviews over the other, I am sure that the taste for originality will be on the line for both of the series by Trekkies.
There is a real good reason that MINOTAUR has taken so long to get launched into the Internet universe...the failure of Paramount's Star Trek Beyond movie was one of them, the next will fall before the movie fans in due time, I am sure. Then, we will be ready to let the cat-out-of-the-bag.
Because in the end, MINOTAUR isn't just going to be just another "Star Trek fan production"...it's going to be FUCKING STAR TREK!
