Today on the Star Trek: Phase II facebook page this was announced:

Facebook again... Did Cawley even announce it himself? Why even maintain this board?
Ladies and gentlemen I've been here for many years, my loyalty taken for granted in one form or another. Final straw!

I'm outta here!

Good question since the announcement was posted by a "Guest."  Didn't know guests could post to the forum - much less an area as sensitive as the "Announcements" topic.

Crashpilot, if it ever gets to a point where "Facebook membership" is required to hear about these things, I'll be right behind you.  As things are I'm still left with some questions - the answers to which are important to maintaining my mirror site:

1)  What happened to "Bread & Savagery?"  Is "The Holiest Thing" now episode 9 - with "Bread & Savagery" moved to the episode 10 slot?

2)  When will mirror sites get HD or high-res copies of each episode?  Will mirrors be given at least a week's lead time before the episodes are supposed to be hot and online?

3)  Any news on the official poster for "The Holiest Thing?"

Regards,
J. Alec West

"guest" in this case it the website. When something is posted to the website it is copied to the announcements section and to all the FB pages.

That's good.  I hope forum members are kept in the loop in all future decisions.

Still, I have those 3 questions I asked ... which (blush) were added by modification "before" I knew you'd replied to the topic.  Any idea on the answers to those questions?

It appears that the announcement cut off the additional information from James. Here is what it says and this should answer some of your questions Alec

Hello Everyone,

First off I would like to say Thank You So Much to all of you who are our Friends, Fans and Supporters. I have been reading many of your posts today and wanted to take a moment to try and answer some of your questions regarding the series, New episodes, and my involvement.

As many of you know that I started this series more than 10 years ago so I could live out my childhood fantasy of getting to play Captain Kirk. I wanted to continue that 5 year mission and finish off those last two seasons we never got. Well, I enjoyed playing the part immensely. I got to live my dream to be Kirk. I got to appear on screen with my heroes George Takei, and Walter Koenig, and Barbra Luna! I will forever be Grateful to them. However, during the course of playing the part I was subjected to many, many cruel comments posted on several websites as to my acting abilities, or my looks and quite honestly it was becoming much to much handle. I was devastated by the venom. I could not fathom, how my fellow Trek fans could be so hurtful towards me for just playing a part!

So I decided to step down as an actor, and take my show to a new level and find a new young actor to fill the role, not an amateur but a pro! I found that in Brian Gross. A Terrific and very talented guy with many guest appearances on many prime time TV series! He is still getting settled in, but I assure you it is a pleasure watching him settle into and find the swagger of the character, I feel over the next three episodes he will be completely in the groove and what I like is that he is making Kirk his own and NOT doing a Shatner impersonation! I am still here, guiding the series as Senior Executive Producer and I have more time to devote to the creative side of the series.

We are Releasing the long delayed episode “Kitumba” on January 1, 2014, which will mark my finale as Kirk, and then on February 14, 2014 we release “The Holiest Thing” with Brian Gross taking over.

In post production we have “Bread and Savagery” which is next in line for release. “Mind-Sifter” will be shot and completed in late June of this year with Brian Gross. The episode “Origins” has been placed on hold, pending a complete re shoot due to complications with actor availability.

Again, let me say Thank You to all of those who I have worked with over the last 10 years and to those of you who have enjoyed our work.  I look forward to many more voyages together, Live Long and Prosper Friends!

I don't know James other than what I read here, but have to really commend him for what he said.  I think it is horrible that a guy like James would spend his personal money to do what he has done only to be ridiculed.  At the end of the day, I've learned that for everyone negative comment there are probably 100 positive things people will say.  The positive doesn't come out as much.  That said, all I can say is that there ARE people out here that have very much appreciated what you've done and don't judge you or anyone else. 

Even though you're in the background now, please keep up the good work.  It is really enjoyed by many!

Man,I know there were some people out there who didn't like james as kirk on YT,but I had no idea there were that many. I for one,always loved James Cawley as Kirk,hair and all.

Even though I look forward to Brian Gross as Kirk,for me James Cawley will always be one of my Kirks.
Either way,keep it coming James,i'm rooting for ya!
