2: A History Channel Special

Prelude to Axanar.

Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad. So says an ancient Greek proverb, and such is what happened to Garth, the legendary Fleet Captain who we first see in the Original Series episode "Whom Gods Destroy." What events in Garth's life led to this, and how did he become a man of Starfleet legend? This is the story that the independent film Star Trek Axanar aims to tell, and it all begins with the forthcoming short "Prelude to Axanar."

In this episode of Continuing Mission we're joined by Axanar creator and producer Alec Peters for an update on the project's development, more information on the format of "Prelude to Axanar" and the production timeline, and some exciting news about casting, which includes the addition of Battlestar Galactica's Michael Hogan to a cast that already includes Richard Hatch, J.G. Hertzler, and Gary Graham, who is reprising his role as Soval from Enterprise.

Doug Drexler: Designing Star Trek Continues.

New Star Trek may no longer grace our televisions each week, but fans who are creative professionals such as actors, writers, and effects designers—many of whom worked on the shows themselves—are now producing original content out of their sheer love for Star Trek. And it's amazing. One such fan is Doug Drexler, the Academy Award-winning designer whose hand can be seen across the franchise on TV, film, and beyond.

In this, the inaugural episode of our new show dedicated to exploring the ways in which fans are keeping Star Trek alive, we're joined by Doug to discuss his work on Star Trek Continues and his previous work on Star Trek: Phase II. We also find out how he became a Star Trek fan in the first place, how he landed his first gig in Hollywood, and how he got hired onto TNG. Plus, moving beyond the screen, we learn about the design process of the new Starfleet-built Deep Space 9 that first appears in David R. George III's Revelation and Dust.
