Continuing Mission 7: Revisiting the Romulan War / by Trek fm

Tommy Kraft and Marc Bowers talk Star Trek: Horizon.

We know a great deal about the 23rd and 24th centuries, but our exploration of the 22nd was unfortunately cut short. The cancellation of Enterprise not only left behind a number of loose threads from the series, but also key moments in Star Trek history that a prequel should have explored.

Almost ten years after Enterprise left television, the feature-length film Star Trek: Horizon aims to close one of those gaps by telling the story of the famous Earth-Romulan War. Made by fans in love with Star Trek and set during the Enterprise time period, Horizon centers on The Coalition of Planets, a young alliance of worlds led by Earth, that is at war with the Romulan Empire. Desperate for a chance to gain the upper hand, the Coalition forms an alliance with T’mar, a Romulan deserter, in the hopes that she can provide valuable intelligence on her former masters.

In the episode of Continuing Mission we're joined by writer, director, and executive producer Tommy Kraft, and actor Marc Bowers, who plays Commander Jackson Gates, first officer of the NX-04 Discovery, to learn more about this story and how the film is being put together.
