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.

And then on this page we have a Facebook status from August 12, 2013; it appears to be a notification and I suspect this was turned over by Mr. Gossett, either in his deposition or in conjunction therewith. Peters posted on Facebook:

Alec wrote: “Just saw “Oblivion” and I have to say it is the best movie of the summer. Brilliantly
written, it shows just why “Star Trek: Into Darkness is such a fail. You don’t have to make up stupid
shit and forget science to make a believable Sci Fi movie. Best production design I have seen in years,
which also puts Star Trek to shame. GO SEE THIS MOVIE. I am buying the Blu Ray, something I don’t
do much.”

So on this page, a November 13, 2013 email from Peters to Gossett, Peters provides a number of links which he categorizes as:

  • TMP Klingons (e. g. from Star Trek: The Motion Picture)
  • Chang (e. g. the Christopher Pummer character from Star Trek The Undiscovered Country)
  • and Neville Page

And then here Peters emailed Hamilton Cox and Christian Gossett on March 17, 2014 and wrote:

The Neru neck undergarment works. I think the outer robe works too. We can add Vulcan Gliphs.

However, previous documents referred to the decorative elements as ‘Chinese characters’.

So this page is an email chain from April of 2014 about various shooting locations.

This is yet another April 4, 2014 email; this one is from Gossett and it’s about Klingon ridges.
