 You see the narrative spun repeatedly in //Axanar// director Robert Meyer Burnett'​s Twitter posts and most recently in [[Alec Peters]]'​ interview for Reason magazine'​s video. Central to their narrative is the notion that millions of fans watched and enjoyed //​Prelude//,​ and that their wishes for more  content justified Axanar'​s eventual fundraising goal of $2 million. ​ You see the narrative spun repeatedly in //Axanar// director Robert Meyer Burnett'​s Twitter posts and most recently in [[Alec Peters]]'​ interview for Reason magazine'​s video.

 Axanar, by comparison, with its fundraising success, decided to prioritize building an [[annual_report#​the_infrastructure_kickstarter|expensive revenue-generating studio]] ahead of actually producing a film. The cost for that sucked up the biggest chunk — [[annual_report#​axanar_spending_by_category|38 percent]] — of Axanar'​s $638K Kickstarter money. Meanwhile, most of the creative and logistical talent behind the success of //Prelude// has departed, making the leap from 20-minute mockumentary to feature-length narrative an even greater challenge than before. Axanar, by comparison, with its fundraising success, decided to prioritize building an [[annual_report#​the_infrastructure_kickstarter|expensive revenue-generating studio]] ahead of actually producing a film.
