Queen to queen’s level three

David Brin’s recent post includes a note on another fan-produced Star Trek production in the pipeline: Star Trek: Axanar.

Where other fan-productions, like Star Trek Continues (mentioned before) are TV episodes, Star Trek: Axanar will be a full-length movie. It stars Alec Peters, Richard Hatch, J.G. Hertzler, Gary Graham, Kate Vernon, Tony Todd, and Garret Wang. You may recognize some of those names from Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Alien Nation.

It won’t be out for another year, but a 20 minute “documentary” is available now:

Think back to the old Star Trek episode “Whom Gods Destroy.” That’s the one where Kirk visits an insane asylum that is subsequently taken over by the brilliant and insane mental patient Captain Garth, the hero of the Battle of Axanar some 20 years earlier. Now we’ll get to see that battle, and Captain Garth’s victory.
