Probably the most exciting (and successful) sci-fi fan film Kickstarter to come recently is the one for SPACE COMMAND. Although Space Command was originally funded through Kickstarter with more than $200K back in 2012 and all the sets were built and all scenes filmed for its pilot 2-hour episode, post-production (visual FX, music, color adjustment, etc.) still needs a bit more funding to be completed.
Two weeks ago, a new Kickstarter was launched with a goal of $39K for post-production for the first half-hour of the pilot, and that was quickly met and surpassed. A stretch goal of $55K was set with a promise of a new trailer if that number was reached. This happened last week, and this exciting video was released shortly thereafter…
As of this writing, they are just $568 short of their new stretch goal of $65K, when they will release a SECOND new trailer! If you want to help them reach that number or even get to $80,000 to fund the second half hour of the pilot, then…
The pilot episode, “Redemption,” features a cast that included notables from Star Trek and other well-known sci-fi franchises:
- Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager)
- Doug Jones (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, and now Star Trek: Discovery’s Saru)
- Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5)
- Mira Furlan (Babylon 5)
- Bill Mumy (Babylon 5 and Lost In Space)
- Faran Tahir (Star Trek 2009…he was the captain of the USS Kelvin)
- James Hong (Big Trouble in Little China)
