Over the past eighteen months, we have been carefully planning logistics, creating partnerships, developing concepts, searching for talent and writing some amazing adventures. This past month, we began rolling cameras on the first scenes for Starship Challenger.
We found ourselves lugging equipment to the bottom of a rocky gorge to shoot the planet-side scenes for our episode “A Logical Solution.” The location and weather fought with us all weekend long, but we persevered and captured some truly amazing footage.
So, What’s Next?
Next month, the Starship Enterprise bridge set at Retro Film Studios in Ticonderoga, New York, will double for the bridge of the USS Ajax and Starship Challenger, as we film opening sequences for our pilot “Another Door Opens.” This will establish Captain JM Colt’s character, and fill in the blanks for fans who haven’t seen her since she was Captain Pike’s yeoman in the TOS episode “The Cage.”
In September, you will have the opportunity to tour these very sets, meet the creators and cast of Star Trek Anthology, as well as performers and writers from the original Star Trek series at Trekonderoga, a Star Trek Convention held in Ticonderoga, New York on September 4th and 5th. Cast and crew from the host production, “Star Trek: New Voyages” and its creator James Cawley will be on hand for tours, workshops and question-and-answer sessions. There is plenty of Trek to fill your weekend, so grab your tickets for Trekonderoga (click here) !
We’ll have more to share soon, so keep an eye on our website and social channels.
