 Most importantly,​ Peters agreed to the terms of the lawsuit settlement preventing him from public fundraising (e.g., Kickstarter or Indiegogo) to pay for the Axanar shorts. That severely constrains Axanar'​s funding options. It's misleading to portray the shorts'​ funding prospects as being similar to //​Prelude//'​s. Without crowdfunding,​ only private appeals are possible, limiting the viral campaign that previously proved so successful for Axanar. Moreover, in its 2017 Indiegogo campaign Peters sought more than $200,000 to save his ill-fated California studio, counting on his vaunted 15,000 supporters to come to his rescue. Barely more than 300 donated just $22,020, casting the loyalty of those 15,000 into doubt. Most importantly,​ Peters agreed to the terms of the lawsuit settlement preventing him from public fundraising (e.g., Kickstarter or Indiegogo) to pay for the Axanar shorts.

-<wrap em>​DUBIOUS</​wrap>​ **Returning Actors**. To keep fans’ interest in Axanar alive, Peters had previously claimed the Star Trek alumni actors who appeared in //Prelude// would return, pointing especially to Gary Graham and J.G. Hertzler. The terms of lawsuit settlement allow the actors to appear in the short films. However, without a script, a budget, funding and shooting schedule none has made a firm commitment. Graham, in fact, has [[prelude_actors_bloopers#​actors_future_with_axanar|distanced himself]] from the project. Kate Vernon has refused to confirm she remains attached to the project.+<WRAP center 90%>
