 <wrap em>​PARTLY TRUE</​wrap>​ **Just Some Fan**. Peters'​ characterization of himself and his project as "just some fan producing a fan film" is at odds with how he formerly portrayed Axanar until he was sued. Peters explicitly eschewed the term fan film for //Axanar//, instead describing it as "the groundbreaking … first fully professional,​ independent Star Trek film."​(([[http://​igg.me/​at/​axanar/​x/​9027520|Axanar Indiegogo campaign page]], retrieved 9/23/16.)) <wrap em>​PARTLY TRUE</​wrap>​ **Just Some Fan**.

 <wrap em>​MOSTLY FALSE</​wrap>​ **Crying Uncle**. The notion that CBS and Paramount expected Peters to fold immediately after they filed suit in December 2015 is mostly supposition based on some lack of specificity in the original [[lawsuit#​legal complaint]],​ swiftly rectified by the plaintiffs in an amended filing. The fact is that Peters simply cannot know what the plaintiffs might have thought about how he would react to the suit. Peters'​ assertion that he unexpectedly rose up to find powerful allies to fight back is simply a narrative used to attract public support. <wrap em>​MOSTLY FALSE</​wrap>​ **Crying Uncle**.
