All told, the filmmakers have raised more than six times their original $100,000 goal. The film will follow the events of the Battle of Axanar and Garth of Izar, which were events briefly mentioned in "the Original Series."
The film's cast members include Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica), and Gary Graham (of "Star Trek: Enterprise"), while production staff includes people such as Frank Serafine (who did sound design for "The Hunt For Red October") Tobias Richter, a visual effects artist who assisted with the remastered "Star Trek: The Next Generation" Blu-rays. Filming is expected to occur in December.
