Star Trek: Axanar

I've just become aware of a very interesting fan production entitled Star Trek: Axanar, which is currently seeking funding through Kickstarter. Axanar tells the story of the Battle of Axanar, the pivotal engagement that saved the Federation. It takes place in 2245, the year of the launch of the USS Enterprise under Robert April, ninety years after the series Enterprise and twenty years before the original series. Garth of Izar, the legendary hero of Axanar who appeared in reduced circumstances in the episode 'Whom Gods Destroy' is the primary character, but several other new and established characters are involved too. has all the details. The test footage shows some really remarkable effects. Filming should have just begun, but the production is still seeking funding. It will be preceded by a documentary-styled 'Prelude to Axanar' which will set out the background of the conflict. There's an impressive cast that boasts some familiar faces. If all goes well, the film should be out by the end of year. I'm looking forward to this one.
