    Hi Sam and Summer,

    This is Tanveer Naseer, director/co-writer of Star Trek: Unity’s first episode “Disunity”. First of all, I’d like to thank you for providing coverage of the release of our first episode on your show. I can tell you that the actors and the team behind Star Trek: Unity really appreciate it. Now the reason why I’m only replying to this now is because I actually didn’t catch this show and our inclusion. Yeah, I know – no soup for me :) But in all fairness, I was kind of pre-occupied at that time with the roll out of our first episode and making sure we wouldn’t have any glitches. And I’m proud to say that premiere day of “Disunity” went off without a hitch. Anyways, I had a friend over last night and when I mentioned Unity, he got all excited and said he heard about it on his satellite radio.

    Now, the reason I wanted to leave a comment here is because I wanted to add a correction to your report about our series. Daren Dochterman is in fact not working on the Star Trek: Unity project; the only connection between Daren and Unity at the moment is that we are one of the mirror sites for his Doomsday Machine SFX “enhanced” footage. Of course, we would love to have someone as talented and an all-around nice guy like Daren on our team. But at the moment, that’s not the case. However, our CGI will be done by Matt Boardman, who is one of the VFX artists currently working on the CGI sequences for Part 3 of “Star Trek: Of Gods and Men”. So I think the audience will still be in for a visual treat.

    So, I just wanted to append this note to your show notes so that future listeners to this podcast don’t get the wrong impression about Daren’s association with the Star Trek: Unity project. Again, my personal thanks to Sam and everyone on the Slice of Sci-Fi team for their coverage of our first episode. We really appreciate it.
