That was from Jetfreak-7. But the moment I did the art commission for The Visitor people all over the internet were taking bets on the task force whooping the unholy snot out of the Vengeance.
That was on Deviant Art. Then I posted the art page commission on some seriously prominent Star Trek groups like Trekyards for example…? It was an instance where I got royally chewed out for even daring…daring to do such a crossover in the first place.
Because why? Because the Star Trek fandom (as indicated above in my last post) is dead set on everything following the franchise to the letter.
No crazy shit allowed. Not even this.
It took me a year to finally convince the fanbois of the franchise that this would have no impact on the Star Trek universe as we know it. It’s not canon.
Once they accepted that, they started accepting the fact that it was for fun and that nothing would change to impact their views on the universe in general.
However, even though it’s been a year since I started on this project, I am still getting flak for it–especially from the newcomers who aren’t familiar with the series.
But everyone else wants to read the fan fiction book this series has now spawned. And I’m not talking just a few. I’m talking hundreds if not thousands of fans across the internet.
And that’s a lot of people to cater to.
