(211) Incomplete, abandoned (or long term hold) film projects with significant production.

211 Star Trek (2009) or JJ Abram's "Star Trek" or Star Trek XI, has been moved to http://startrekreviewed-tvandmovies.blogspot.com/2012/01/movie-11.html .

If a film listed here goes back into production, it is moved to http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/210.html until completed, when it is given it's permanent location.  Check the index for current location of films no longer here:  http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/100.html

The following projects have been abandon for over a year.   Some have released full episodes which end in "to be continued..." but never were.  Others offer large parts of an episode (3 parts of a 4 part episode) but never finished, and have not current plans to finish.  As Yorktown, A Time to Heal has proven, Never Give UP, Never Surrender!  I am listing these in Alphabetical Order by Name.

Moviestorm has invited this film to enter a contest because of the quality of the animation.  http://www.machinima-expo.com/

Set 5 years after the end of the Dominion War, Silver Age, Mechinima work of an adult fan.

Filmmaker is Andy Price, who identifies himself as an Englishman living in Southwales.

Episode 1: Ravuesian http://www.moviestorm.co.uk/community/index.php?page=videos&section=view&vid_id=107488 (16:17)   Episode is rare in that the central characters are not humans.  Excellent for Mechinima.   Ends, "To be continued..."  Therefore, it is not a complete story.

Voice actors have not responded and delayed further production of this series as of April, 2012.  Some parts may be recast.

On Feb. 12, 2013 I received assurance (via Facebook) that this project was still going forward, albeit slowly.    In December 2013 facebook postings announced this project was going forward again.

On February 27, 2014 a posting was made about a new animation for this series.  On July 2, 2014, I asked if he was still working on this, was working on it once in a while, or if it was on hold again.  If I hear nothing by July 15, this will be moved to short term hold.  It was moved, after a reply on July 29 here, as 'slow progress.'

On March 21, 2015 I left a note on his Facebook page asking he had had made any progress on this film.

Star Trek: Imperium  Silver Age. Live Action.  Melbourne, Florida.  Set in 2387, Silver Age, in the original time line, after Romulus is destroyed.  Starting filming in January, 2010.  This is their blog:  http://startrekimperium.blogspot.com/  Update of website in February of 2012 notes serious and multiple personal problems which have put this on hold.

Feb. 28, 2013... burst of activity on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/startrek.imperium  but until they report actual work, I'm leaving this here.  They posted a pilot summary on May 24, 2013, but also stated they had to pay for a place to film and cameras and had no money.  They want others to pay for their plans, and need a Kickstarter for over $2000.00  Still staying here.  They also posted an update on May 31, 2013 here: http://forums.hiddenfrontier.com/index.php?showtopic=16448 .  June 12 2013 their funding goal was not reached.  No information since then.

They are seeking people to help with CGI work and post-production.

Star Trek: The Motion Comic.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBSf6ooInJg (8:07).  I am relying on the research of Orion Press in their claim this is abandon.   I have not communicated with the filmmaker.  However, it is a crossover film with aliens.

Star Trek: Roddenbury .  Released in 2004, The creators released a second, complete Star Trek Fan Film on February 17, 2012, and stated they may yet create a short conclusion to this film.  The information on this film, has therefore been moved to http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/125.html

I requested their location by e-mail, and they were kind enough to respond, vis:
Hi, the involved people on this movie are from different countries (Germany, Swiss, United Kingdom, USA, Canada). But if you want to place a single location you can use Bremen.

An exchange in August 2010 claimed they had just started working on this again after putting it down for about a year.  They have also posted information that they are making good progress as of Oct 1, 2010, and still expect to finish this project.  On June 13, 2011, I again got confirmation that work was being done on this project.

An e-mail dated February 11, 2013 informed me that the project was abandoned.
