When Fans Become FANATICAL: Axanar -the Star Trek 'Fan Film' That Boldly Went Too Far....


A few years ago some very adult fans of Star Trek decided to make an entire movie based upon a little explored episode in Star Trek canon called the 'Battle Of Axanar'. They crowdfunded this production and used a lot of direct references to Star Trek lore. And apparently not a one of them realized they had CROSSED THE LINE between being SIMPLY FANS and becoming RIVALS OF THE REAL OWNERS OF STAR TREK, PARAMOUNT AND CBS STUDIOS!!! So they were promptly sued and had to suck it up to Paramount and CBS executives and not to Klingons. Hahaha!! Fucking hilarious.
