Vic Mignogna Talks Star Trek and When the Train Stops.

In 2013, Vic Mignogna audaciously took the center seat aboard the USS Enterprise and assumed the role of Captain James T. Kirk Star Trek Continues. His performance quickly gained him the respect and admiration of millions of Star Trek fans around the globe—and possibly beyond! Vic continues to have a wide and varied career—on and off the big screen—as an actor, a professional voiceover artist, and a musician and composer.

In this episode of Continuing Mission, host Tony Robinson and guest Zach Moore of Standard Orbit are joined by Vic as he vacates the captain’s chair to look back at his time aboard the Enterprise. He also brings us up to speed on his latest adventure—the fan-funded mystery film When The Train Stops.

16: Breaking Out Into Dance with Dr. McKennah

Michele Specht on Dr. Elise McKennah.

One of the biggest is independent series around is Star Trek Continues. The first three episodes have recaptured the look, the feel, and the spirit of the original Star Trek with incredible authenticity. But in the process of recreating the 1960s television icon, Star Trek Continues hasn't shied away from addressing some of the gaps in TOS.

For many, one of the most noticeable missing links in TOS is the gender balance amongst the Enterprise crew. Star Trek Continues has addressed this by bringing aboard a new character, Dr. Elise McKennah, played by Michele Specht, who joins Uhura as a female voice on the show. Additionally, Dr. McKennah brings a TNG element to the 23rd century in the form of ship's counselor. While this may ruffle the feathers of some purists, the results more than speak for themselves.

In this episode of Continuing Mission we're joined by Michele to talk about McKennah, how she approaches the role of a character that, unlike her those played by her castmates, is unknown to fans, and get a few behind-the-scenes tidbits. We also discuss her training in music and theatre, her voice work for anime, and her comedy background.

14: A Star Trek Obsession

Obsessed: Star Trek Continues and the Mirror Universe.

Star Trek Continues recently released their third episode "Fairest of Them All," which is a direct follow-up to the Original Series episode "Mirror, Mirror." It tells the story of what happened when the mirror landing party returned to the ISS Enterprise. The attention to detail in set design, costumes, lighting, and even framing of shots is so meticulous that it is easy to forget that you're watching something shot in 2014, not 1967.

While the onscreen story is intriguing, what is equally fascinating is everything that happened offscreen to make "Fairest of Them All" possible. As fans watching from home, it isn't easy to get a feel for what goes into making an episode like this. But thanks to Condé Nast Entertainment and WIRED, now you can.

Obsessed: Star Trek Continues is a five-part behind-the-scenes look at our return to the Mirror Universe. In this episode of Continuing Mission we're by Captain Kirk himself, Vic Mignogna, along with director James Kerwin and, from Condé Nast, Michael Prenez-Isbell for a first-hand account of the documentary project, the creation of the Mirror Universe story, impressions of the set, and why Star Trek is an obsession for the cast and crew of STC.

3: The Mirror Universe Continues

Star Trek Continues Episode 3 with James Kerwin and Chris White.

A production of Farragut Films, Star Trek Continues picks up the story of The Original Series right where it left off in 1969. Featuring a talented cast that includes Vic Mignogna as Captain Kirk and Chris Doohan in the role made iconic by his father, Star Trek Continues has brought us two episodes that are almost indistinguishable from those shot in the 1960s. Fans are eagerly awaiting the third installment, which just finished filming, and speculation about what the story might hold has struck like lightning.

In this episode of Continuing Mission we're joined by director and co-writer James Kerwin and first assistant director Chris White for a sneak peak at what STC's third outing has in store for us.

1: Put the Ape Brain Away!

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.
