The following was posted at the Trek BBS on October 23, 2013.  It provides a bit of an update: We are in post production of our second installment, to complete our 2 part origin saga. Graphic designer turned film producer/director/writer/vfx/sound engineer/make-up artist/marketer/editor/talent agent. In the trenches I've learned volumes and wore several hats as needed to bring a dream to life. Those on here who have been able to turn their passions into a tangible product are few and far between. It's awesome how great many have been to support and encourage one another. I poo poo those that are filled with more opinion than actual experience. We've have only a few pick-up shots to film and a few more vfx to complete before the final edit is locked. We then hope to get it to an audio engineer (still looking) for final master edit and to work with our composer. Release is dependent on these details.

  1. Unfortunately, they cancelled their production for reasons unknown. Rumor has it that Alec Peters may have had a hand in that decision(i.e. talking them out of continuing so that he could have additional personnel to help out on his Star Trek-Axanar production).

    Farragut Films may have also had a hand in this as well.

  2. Not entirely accurate. As I understand it, they could not raise the money they hoped to raise and have had to scale back and work more slowly, but they are still working on their second episode.

  3. Fund raising efforts are still in effect. We have received matching challenge to generate more. Costs for even fan films can be staggering, we make a lot of progress with volunteers but volunteers can be flaky at best when there is no financial motivation. We are blessed to have some support and a new producer who has vowed to help get the final footage finished over the next 6-8 months.

    1. Thank you for your above reply, I am again happy and waiting to see the next episode, wish I could help but I live in Maine, I have contributed, wish I could do more, your production means more then you know, it's filling in a gap of story line that needs being done, thank you Star Trek Secret Voyage group...
