SERIES RELEASE DATE PUT ON HOLD...

During tonight's video interview and conference, the studio CEO [D. R. Quintana] released news that the studio has been asked to "hold up" the release date for one of the most highly anticipated fan productions on the web. He did not disclose who asked to hold up the series release date, but that it would not affect production efforts on future episodes.

Asked if whether the "hold up" for the MINOTAUR release date was partly due to the networks decision to hold up the future release of Paramount's planned next Star Trek TV series next year, the series director said, "It was just mere coincidence."

This news comes at a time when the studio was beginning to release more insights on the studio blog and a planned featurette trailer which was about to air on October 1st. The series director/creator said that a video interview will be released in the near future, giving out more details concerning the hold and some other interesting sneak peeks into the series.

We will keep you up-to-date as the news comes in!

ACTION SEQUENCES TAKE CENTER STAGE IN EPISODE ONE!

The studios attempt to produce not only a dramatic plot line to the series, but also a series with some action packed scenes to feed the parched throats of Trekkies looking for a little more excitement in fan productions, seems to have struck a nerve recently when the series was previewed by some SciFi fans in California this past weekend.
If the high marks on their reviews weren't about the sexy actresses playing their parts, it was certainly for the visual effects presented in the episode. Two reviews gave the studio "high kudos" for bringing back "the boogie man feel to the Borg" and especially for presenting the Borg Queen as a "nasty villain." 

Series producer/creator/director, D. R. Quintana, says that the series at this point has crossed over a ton of hurdles, making the studio believe that the world-wide release for the series just may be around the corner. The studio has aimed for a winter release, but fans are pushing for a fall release via email to get the series launched; something the studio is considering.

"We've had to do a little bit of this and a little bit of that just to make everyone happy," said Quintana. "I've come down to the conclusion that Trekkies are just picky 'sons-of-bitches' who won't ever be happy with anyone's contribution to the Roddenberry universe. I've receive emails all of the time from Trekkie trolls who are shooting down the series and they've never seen it; giving heavy weight against us for something they just don't like, just out of principle for attempting to do something different. It hasn't swayed us at all, but it has certainly showed us what we're up against in dealing with bonafide Trekkie trollers."


The California reviews did provide a strong acceptance to the "twenty something" performances throughout the first episode; providing a glimpse into Captain Kirk's statement of "galloping around the cosmos is a game for the young, doctor..." statement in Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan. So, even thought the cast of the series has primary roles filled with veteran actors pretty much in their late 30's and 40's, the reviews gave high marks to the younger cast members who provided solid performances within the first episode.

Quintana added, "We're hoping to embark on stories and plots filled with a wide variety of angles that will catch fan by complete surprise. In a vast landscape where there are many people who want us to succeed as well as many more who want us to fail, we feel like we have nothing to lose by continuing ahead. If people were so impressed by Paramount's dying attempts at re-booting Trek through high octane action CGI junk and bad storytelling, then I am sure we will lose nothing by releasing a better "thought out" and well rounded series to fans on the Internet."

As of today, no release date has been disclosed by the studio.
