Donor FAQ

Below you will find a growing list of answers to some of the many questions that we’re routinely asked.


1)    The best way to stay up to date with Axanar is by visiting this website on a regular basis.

2)    All donors should be receiving our donor email newsletter.  If you are not, you may subscribe to the donor email list by signing up for our newsletter.

3)    All donors need to go through our donor management system, Ares Digital which is also how we deliver digital perks.   This is where you can update your shipping address as well. You can find more information here:

4)    If you have any donor questions, you can email us at

5)    Axanar Kickstarter  –  Patches for the Axanar Kickstarter have been shipped to those who went through Ares Digital.  If you did not receive your patches, then you most likely did not go through Ares Digital. Please email us.  All other perks will be shipped when they are available, which generally means after we shoot Axanar later this year.

6)    Axanar Indiegogo  –  Most perks for the Axanar Indiegogo have not shipped.  Perks will be shipped after we shoot Axanar later this year.

Please understand that while donors did not pay for the over $1 million in legal fees that we received for free from Winston & Strawn, the lawsuit by CBS/Paramount cost donors approximately $500,000 in lost time and studio costs.  It also delayed everything by almost two years, as we couldn’t proceed during the lawsuit and we recently had to move our sets to a new studio across the country.  Also, no one is getting paid to work on Axanar and that means we have to work on Axanar around our full time jobs.  So please be patient. This is a massive undertaking.
