The Facebook page has ongoing releases of tidbits as of July 25, 2015.  It looks like they are in post-production.  A comment by the filmmaker said he hoped to finish this calendar year.

In April of 2016 a sequel, "Federation Rising," was announced.  However, CBS contacted them and advised them to not make the film, so they will not.
