Star Trek: Axanar (2014 fan film)

A project that was kickstarted this year has started to bare fruit as the "Prelude to Axanar" documentary nears its release date. That will be used to kickstart the actual film due later this year.

The benefit of the first Kickstarter run was that they made ten times the money they set out to make, thus allowing them to make some of the practical effects for the film early (makeup for the Klingons and CGI for the space battles).

Here is the first released trailer for "Prelude to Axanar"

The story is about Captain Garth of Izar, who was a character seen in the 1969 Star Trek episode "Whom Gods Destroy". In that episode he was a former great starship captain, a idol of Captain Kirk, whom had gone made in recent years. This is a story from about 25 years before that episode, during a war with the Klingon Empire that ws briefly touched upon from time to time. A war that the Federation was losing. This is the story of who Garth and Star Fleet turned the tide of the war around.

The Prelude to Axanar is a 20 or so minute long documentary style film to lead up to the full film about the Battle of Axanar.

This trailer stars:

Tony Todd as Admiral Ramirez
John G. Hertzler as Captain Samuel Travis
Kate Vernon as Captain Sonya Alexander
Alec Peters as Captain Kelvar Garth of Izar
Richard Hatch as Klingon Commander Kharn
Gary Graham as Ambassador Soval

The Axanar film will also include Michael Hogan as Captain Robert April (of the USS Enterprise)

Also a sound effect lesson that used the major battle scene in the trailer as its subject matter. Lots of Klingon and Federation ships involved.

very cool.

I've been looking forward to this for quite some time.

Can't wait to see this fan-made movie.

Prelude to Axanar will debut at Comic-Con on the evening of the 26th.

Star Trek: Axanar, the full film, is suppose to come out in 2015 after filming is completed this fall. Depending of course of funding, building the sets, casting the rest of the actors, and post-production. The extra money from the first Kickstarter will got to get things like makeup pieces for the Klingons done, and for the CGI ship combat scenes to be made. Also to I image some to get sets at least started before the second Kickstarter beings after the release of Prelude to Axanar (as that 20 or so minute long mockumentary will be used to promote the full on film.)

Thank you for the update.

It looks like it will be a fantastic edition to the Star Trek external universe.

The Kickstarter for the main film and related projects (tie in material filmed with the Phase II group) started today and went over $50,000 in half a day. Though they are looking for $275,000 to get everything done.

They also have a nearly 5 minute long trailer from Prelude to Axanar out, as it will come out tomorrow at both Comic-con and Dragon-con.

"Prelude to Axanar" came out for the donors last night. It is 21 minutes long and worth ever cent spent on it.

It will be out for everyone else on their Kickstarter page on Wednesday (barring technical issues). They are already over $85,000 towards the full film to come out (hopefully) around August of 2015.

One thing: Richard Hatch make a damn good Klingon. In the serious and dangerously intelligence kind we've not seen much of since the Next Generation started.

The first Kickstarter goal for the film ($100,000) has been reached.

The film is estimated to cost $650,000. They were going to do two Kickstarters are different times as the production when along. However the first one doesn't end until August 24th...so there is time that they could potentially reach the full total without needing a second Kickstarter.
