Axanar David Grossman Declaration and Exhibits

Janet Gershen-Siegel

Jespah (Janet Gershen-Siegel) has been a fan of Star Trek since probably the first set of reruns of The Original Series. She has an eclectic background, including an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, a JD (she practiced insurance defense law for a few years in New York and is a lot happier since she retired from that in 1990), and a MS in Interactive Media, which is a real-live social media degree.

Along the way, she has about a decade and a half of data analysis work under her belt and currently works as a blog coordinator for a high-end wedding blog and also as a blogger for hire (topics include diverse subjects like ad retargeting but also the nursing job market), and has a shingle out to work on social media presence, with a focus on independent authors as she is also a published science fiction author. Plus, she has been a community manager for a large Q & A website since 2002, which is before that existed as a job title.

She was raised on Long Island so, when she is riled up, the accent gallops back out and she can sound like Fran Drescher with a law degree. She lives in Boston with her husband of over 20 years and more computers than they need.

She can always be bribed with pie.

The David Grossman Declaration was added as a part of the recent Application for an Ex Parte order.

There are a lot of documents here; we’ll get through them together, page by page, okay? This blog post paginates so it won’t load a ton of images every time.

Exhibit E

This one was another huge exhibit. So as always, we start with a cover sheet.

And the first page is a January 4, 2011 email sent by defendant Peters to Christian Gossett, with a cc to John Muenchrath and ‘victhewop@aol.com‘. Peters suggests viewing the following TOS episodes:

  • Where No Man Has Gone Before
  • The Menagerie Parts 1 & 2
  • City on the Edge of Forever
  • Mirror, Mirror
  • and Space Seed
  • The Doomsday Machine
  • The Trouble with Tribbles
  • Balance of Terror
  • Amok Time
  • The Enterprise Incident
  • The Tholian Web
  • A Piece of the Action
  • and Whom Gods Destroy (that’s the Garth of Izar episode, folks)

So a few of these pages are wide so they are on their sides. This one is a November 25, 2012 email from Gossett to Peters, but it’s part of an email chain including a note from Sean Tourangeau.

And here is the last bit of the November 24, 2012 Tourangeau email wherein he refers to sketches.

So this first Tourangeau sketch is a Klingon.

And this page shows a close-up Tourangeau sketch, again, this is of a Klingon.

And this is a third Klingon sketch by Tourangeau. By the way, these sketches are labeled ‘Klingon’. So anyone feeling the parties did not know they were talking about Klingons is, I believe, being disingenuous.

This page is just a part of Gossett’s standard signature line.
