DEMONS (“Avalon Universe” Indiegogo)

Our stories take place in an alternate universe that is not the Star Trek Prime Universe, nor is it the Kelvin Universe, but is a universe somewhere in between. We call this the “Avalon Universe.” This gives us the opportunity to take creative freedom to tell unique stories with unique elements, and not violate Star Trek canon in any way.

A mysterious alien artifact represents a grave threat to the security of the Federation, and a faction of the Klingon Empire will stop at nothing to capture it. While the command crew of the USS Excalibur races to discover the artifact’s story first, they must battle their own personal demons.

Still reeling from a series of personal losses, First Officer Amanda Beck is driven to find meaning in the pursuit of the artifact’s secrets. Captain Lance Ramirez struggles to command a ship that should never have been his.  They must work together to forge a new future for the Excalibur and the Federation.  Can they face their fears, or will the Demons win the day?

THE NEUTRAL ZONE (ongoing Patreon Campaign)

THE NEUTRAL ZONE (formerly STAGE 9 STUDIOS), located in Kingsland, GA is a 9,600 square foot housing a full-scale suite of Constitution class starship sets including the bridge, transporter room, engineering, sickbay, and much more!

Previously the home of the web series STAR TREK CONTINUES, these sets have been meticulously constructed under the guidance of Executive Producer Vic Mignogna, and are now open to the public for fan film productions and fan appreciation events.

THE NEUTRAL ZONE is NOT a money-making enterprise but an opportunity to share the passion that millions of STAR TREKfans have for the series! All contributions will go towards rent, utilities and maintenance. Any monies collected beyond that will fund studio improvements and new set construction.

Help us keep the lights on!

ARES STUDIOS (ongoing Patreon Campaign)

Ares Studios is the first fan owned film studio.  Founded by Alec Peters, the creator of the ground breaking Star Trek fan film Prelude to Axanar, Ares Studios produces video content for fans of Star Trek and Sci-Fi, including weekly YouTube shows.

The physical studio, located near Atlanta, Georgia – and home to the amazing USS Ares bridge set – is open to all Sci-Fi and genre fans to utilize in their fan films. Ares Studios has also partnered with Gwinnett County High Schools in support of their Academy Program, allowing video production students to work in the studio and film on our sets.

The most important goal for Ares Studios: with a rent of $3,600 a month and utilities and insurance about another $400, $4,000 will cover all monthly expenses to keep the studio open for all to use!

THE ROMULAN WAR (online “in demand” Indiegogo campaign)

THE ROMULAN WAR is a Star Trek fan film production which documents the plight of humanity as it faces extinction at the hands of the Romulan Empire in the 22nd century. If you like Star Trek, war movies, or the History Channel, be part of our campaign to complete production on THE ROMULAN WAR!

Our documentary-style fan film focuses on this historic event that led to the creation of the United Federation of Planets…the war between Earth and the Romulan Empire!   Captain’s logs, eyewitness video, journal entries, and period photographs combine with “found footage” of the war’s key conflicts to realistically depict a world where mankind’s very survival is at stake.

THE ROMULAN WAR vividly embraces the entire sweep of the 22nd century’s most devastating war, covering the battles in space, on alien worlds, and on the home fronts of both Earth and Romulus. These are the heroic adventures of captain and cadet alike that ultimately leads to the formation of the Federation!

DREADNOUGHT DOMINION

FOLKS…!  Both “Reality Check” and “Silent Acknowledgment” have been getting a LOT of great comments and views!  Both of these were self-funded by cast and crew.  We are launching a GoFundMe campaign to fund our LONG shoot in early 2019 for two 15-minute productions. We will also shoot a vignette to GET US OUT INTO SPACE for the two 15-minute adventures. We’ve LOVED doing Dreadnought Dominion, but we’ve not gotten to be “out there” just yet.  HELP Dominion get OUT THERE and continue our adventures.

MELBOURNE: “BALANCE OF TERROR”

With “Stormfront, Part 2” and the dust settling down, we are gearing up to shoot our next film. Due to the problems with the sets, we lost the funds we had, and need your help to tell our story.

We are building a warp core to add to the engineering section!
The next thing we are doing is visiting a mysterious space station that is outside of Federation space.  This will require some props, set decoration and aliens in costumes and makeup to make it all look pretty…well, dirty in this case.

Last but not least, need a few more uniforms for our actors and extras.  Oh yeah, and we are debuting a new character!  She was planned from the beginning, but this will be her first time on screen!

Join us in telling the next installment of our story!  You can follow us here for more info…

PACIFIC 201 (online “in demand” Indiegogo campaign)

pacific-201

Pacific 201 tackles an unseen era of Star Trek history, telling our idea of how Earth reestablishes itself as a positive interstellar influence after the devastating Romulan War. Forty years have passed since the cease-fire was signed, establishing the Romulan Neutral Zone, and ending the war. But the problems are far from over, as mistrust and a general wariness of the unknown have plagued humanity for years. That era is coming to a close as the children of those who fought in the war are tired of hiding from the galaxy. The time has come for Earth to regain its confidence and make a name for itself in the stars. Those hopes are embodied in the launching of Earth’s newest flagship: the Starship Pacific, which will embark on a bold mission towards a mysterious and uncharted region of space.

We’ve raised many of the funds required to go forward with production, but as much of our budget requires our team to spend a lot out-of-pocket, continued contributions will only serve to make Pacific 201 even better!
