The Year In Review.
2014 ended in a way we never imagined when the first Axanar Kickstarter was launched. What began in the spring as a project to create a unique fan film that was a notch above what had been done before turned into a juggernaut. Support for Prelude to Axanar was incredible, but what came afterwards was unbelievable. Thanks to you, our amazing supporters, Axanar has transformed into a professional studio production that shows the power of Star Trek fans as well as their thirst for great storytelling.
In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters look back at the year that was, how the initial steps were planned and executed, the appeal of Axanar, and how a devoted community has turned this dream into a movement. We also delve into the future of Star Trek, where the franchise might go on television, and what we’d like to see in the years to come.
In our news segment we bring you an update on Ares Studios, learn about the upcoming Propworx Star Trek auction, and find out what Alec was doing along with many of our favorite Trek actors as they stepped back in time to the Mercury Theatre on the Air.
