Sure, seeing Spock in the recent Abrams’ Trek film was all sorts of awesome, but what about another adventure starring the original crew, or even some of the cast members from the various TV shows?
What is Star Trek: Of Gods and Men? Only one of the most elaborate fan films I’ve ever seen!
Star Trek: Of Gods and Men stars Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols (Uhura and Chekov of the original series) and Alan Ruck (Captain John Harriman of the 7th Trek feature film, Star Trek Generations) along with Grace Lee Whitney (Janice Rand of the original series). Joining them are Garrett Wang (Star Trek: Voyager) and Ethan Phillips (Star Trek: Voyager as well as Star Trek: The Next Generation); Cirroc Lofton, Chase Masterson and JG Hertzler (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Gary Graham and Crystal Allen (Star Trek: Enterprise), Herb Jefferson (Battlestar Galactica) plus Tim Russ (reprising his role as Tuvok from Star Trek: Voyager), who also directed. The same team that created the hit “Roddenberry on Patrol,” currently in DVD release, and also directed by Russ, is producing the webisode mini-series.
Set in the original series timeline, the story picks up twelve years after Kirk’s death, in an alternate universe where we get a much darker tale, and once familiar and welcome faces take a sinister turn!
You’ll never see a fan film with this much interaction from the original cast, and with such high production values!
The entire film can be seen for free on its official site, but Renegade Studios has also made a limited edition DVD available via its store! Of course, as it’s not official Trek, they can’t charge you for it, so you get the limited edition free when you purchase anything from their store, which directly goes to funding their next big project!
The DVD contains pop-up commentary throughout the movie, compiled from the memories of cast and crew, includes behind the scenes facts, production trivia, and more. The DVD also includes interviews with the cast and crew!
