“Star Trek 3″ – filming in early 2015

It looks like all systems are go for the next Trek film to start filming early next year with a release most likely in the summer of 2016.  Roberto Orci has basically been working on the story and script and appears to be set to direct this next film in the successful reboot of the Trek film franchise.  It is also expected that JJ Abrams will be along as some type of executive producer of some type even with his work on the next “Star Wars” film deep in the works now.  They are expected to show the Enterprise and her crew out exploring more in deep space and this should hopefully be the most original of the recent films we have seen – which has me very excited.  So, we should be hearing more as we get closer to 2015 and get some early hints at the story and look of this next Trek film.  A few more details can be found HERE.  Live long and prosper!

“Red Shirt Diaries” – new web series

A funny, new web series that follows the adventures of a red shirted ensign as she experiences the original series episodes from her point of view.  Really looks to be a great concept and a lot of fun too.  Trailer and the first couple of episodes are down below for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!

“Star Trek – Axanar”

A 20 minute preview video is out for this very cool fan film (that uses many professional actors and behind the scenes talent too).  Featuring the story of a epic war with the Klingons in the early days of the Federation, it is very compelling and very well done.  Also, if you want to see more of this film go to their Kickstarter link and HERE and lend your support.  It is very, very cool!

“How Far We’ve Trekked” – music video

I’ve been having fun with my iMac and I made this music video featuring clips from all the “Star Trek” films to date.  Hard to squeeze clips in from everything but it worked out pretty well I think.  Hope you enjoy this and join Vimeo so you can click the little ‘hearts’ to like a video there.  Enjoy the music video and check out my other work there too.

“Star Trek: Continues – Fairest of them All”

The latest fan film from this terrific group premiered about a week ago and is called:  “Fairest of them All.”  It’s a direct sequel to the classic TOS episode, “Mirror, Mirror” and picks up right after the end of that episode.  They’ve really nailed the look, feel, and just about everything from TOS for this one folks.  I very much enjoyed watching it and I think you will too.  It’s really wonderful to be getting basically new episodes of TOS over the last several years from the various fan film groups out there.  So, sit back and enjoy the episode below.  It’s terrific and very entertaining!

Amazing talent, top notch production values and what appears to be a very interesting story all make me very excited for this new fan film coming soon.  Make sure to notice all the “Star Trek” and “Battlestar Galactica” actors in this one.  Check out the trailer below and be prepared to be blown away.  Looks incredible.  Make sure to watch it in HD.  Enjoy!

One of the best and the longest running “Star Trek” fan film series is running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to complete episodes, build new sets, and continue their voyages with new adventures.  This has really been a great series of fan productions with top notch quality.  I urge all Trek fans to donate what you can for this worth effort.  Every dollar donated helps and will be used to create more Trek for all of us to enjoy.  So check out the links below and donate what you can for more Phase II Trek goodness!

I’ve known about this “Star Trek” inspired band for awhile now but I recently got some more of their music and wanted to post about them.  They do concerts, have multiple CD’s out (digital available as well of course) and play some very cool music inspired by mostly the original series.  Check out their web page HERE and their Facebook page HERE along with their music videos on Youtube (a couple below for you).  I really dig this stuff and I think you will enjoy it too!
