We started shipping perks from the 2014 Axanar Kickstarter and the 2015 Axanar Indiegogo campaign as far back as 2015. Even when CBS sued us, and cost donors over $500,000 we still were shipping perks. And since CBS almost bankrupted us (and me) and forced me to spend over $200,000 of my own money, we are still shipping perks! It may be another year till everything is shipped, but we will not stop till everyone gets everything.
So, here is what has shipped…..
These patches were sent out to all donors in 2016. If you didn’t receive yours, please email Alec at email@example.com and he will take care of it.
These patches were sent out to all donors in 2019. If you didn’t receive yours, please email Alec at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will get you a new set.
INDIEGOGO ULTIMATE PATCH COLLECTION
The Indiegogo Ultimate Patch Collection shipped to donors in 2019. If you donated at this level and ignored all of our emails and updates and thus didn’t get yours, please email Alec at email@example.com.
KICKSTARTER AND INDIEGOGO SIGNED CAST MEMBER PHOTOS
Kickstarter and Indiegogo Signed Cast Member Photos have shipped! If you donated at this level and ignored all of our emails and updates and thus didn’t get yours, please email Alec at firstname.lastname@example.org or wait till we offer the new cast photos this Fall.
First Day of Production Crew Badge
This special Indiegogo perk shipped after the Vulcan Scene was filmed.
So that is what has been shipped so far.
So here is what is shipping this coming month:
The Challenge Coins were a perk in the 2014 Axanar Kickstarter. But we will be offering ALL donors the chance to get the official USS Ares Challenge Coin. We have ordered the coins as well as the special mailers and envelopes we need to ship them. We will shortly be sending all donors to the Ares Studios Store.
Signed Crew Badge
A perk in the 2015 Indiegogo, this badge will be shipped after we get a few more signatures!
Just as a reminder, all perks are shipped by having donors go through the Ares Studios Store and paying a small shipping and handling charge. Since CBS basically bankrupted Axanar by suing us, we rely on donors to pay the actual costs of shipping the perks. It takes a lot of time and effort to ship all the perks, and we are happy to be donating our time to this venture, but we simply cannot assume the costs of this process anymore. Thank you for understanding!
